Nice site but we asked for the back part of site after reading reviews. Walking around town was lovely, very pretty buildings and fishing was good.
This is only good for a 2/3 night stay to visit Porto. The staff are very accommodating and charming but there prime objective is to cram as many motor homes and caravans in as possible. Aircraft start taking off at 6pm but usually finish by 10pm. Beaches very nice with boardwalks for bikes and walking. We did have our electric cable taken out arbitrarily when we were out one day and drainage issues going on in the evening. Don\'t expect to be happy staying here, it\'s just a means to an end to see Porto. Which is well worth it.
When we arrived we were put in a cramped space with other vans, and if there had been a fire we would not have got out alive. A definate severe fire risk. Within 10 mins we were surrounded by at least 12 cats - we had two terriers who where determined to kill at alll costs, the noise was unbearable for us, never mind the neighbours.. We were then moved, at our request, to a much, much better area of the site, with a proper camping pitch and a modern toilet block - and only the occasional cat. We stayed 10 days and enjoyed the area generally. A great beach. Visited Porto, & Guimaraes (both a must). The staff are so helpful - we were even given instructions in English on how to use the metro train to go to Porto, plus a tourist map. Our two dogs went on the train for and were also allowed on the river trip in Porto. We will definately return. Thank you.
Acceptable for stopover,but rather too many vans too close together.
Strange sort of local area, a bit desolate. Showers only on for 7mins then they cut out so you have to be very quick, also not very hot.
No seats on wc. Shop on site. Quite lively bar.
Very helpful staff though. Trip into Porto by taxi and metro is easiest and well worth a day or 2. Lovely town.
We had a very pleasant 3 days at this site, the beach is very close and there are a few restaurants in the village most do local fish, we travelled to Porto on the metro which we found easy to get tickets, Porto is well worth the visit on of our favourites in Portugal. You can walk along the beach in both directions on boards which protect the dunes stopping for coffee or a drink at the many small bars along the way to Villa Condor.
A super campsite...went for 3 nights & stayed for 7! Very nice & extremely helpful staff. Appears to be a family run business. Well stocked so site shop, nice little bar...very reasonable prices. Free wifi only in bar & reception area but worked very well. Easy taxi ride to metro station & if you visit Porto more then once...we went 3 times keep your metro ticket & just recharge it ( bit like a UK Oyster card). Very clean toilets...there are disabled facilities...just ask for a separate key at reception. The new block has loo seats...but you must take your own loo paper! Behind that block are drying lines if you can\'t sling a line between the trees. There\'s a good restaurant across the road from the site. Finally it\'s probably very busy in the summertime .
Great sit for visiting Porto BUT they cram to many vans on site no way could put a awning up a shame because the staff and owner are brilliant
Staff brilliant, except Antonio, he is obsessed with parking, away from caravan/camping car. We are both disabled so after a battle we won the battle. I am a fluent Spanish speaker so we had the rights afforded by the E.U Parked by motor home. Handy for the area,, lots of beaches. Local restaurants overcharge tourists. Not bad for a few days. No pitch, just find a pitch you can squeeze in to. Cold water for washing clothes. Lots of seasonal pitches too close for comfort. Lots of foreigners. Any one with a blue badge should accept your request. We would return. Have made lots of Portuguese friends..
Very good site although not all the pitches are marked out. The staff were excellant and nothing was too much trouble. A very well stocked shop but it was a struggle to get a good internet connection. Good walks, 10 minutes from the sea, and an easy trip into Porto on the Metro after short taxi ride (5 euros).
A lovely friendly campsite with informal pitches very close to the beach. The shop on site has everything you need and the bar serves snacks although we didn\'t partake of anything other than a drink. As mentioned in a previous review, you are given a voucher for a free port. One this you should be aware of is that the water for the showers is turned on by pressing the appropriately numbered button on the wall outside of the showers. You will get 7 minutes of free hot water then which is ample. If you go to Porto and use the metro, you buy your tickets from the machine on the platform which won\'t accept 20 or 50 euro notes or an english credit card, which is contrary to what it says. You can select english prompts and you have to select 5 zones, 2 titulos for each person travelling. So you get one ticket for each person which will get you there and back. Also you must validate your ticket by pressing it against the reader also on the platform. We fortunately had a nice portugese man to help us.
