Glamping description

This tent on our unique, 1-hectare location on the river, is surrounded by greenery and mountains, with the beautiful village of Arganil only a short distance away. Here you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings, and also be active. Our safari tent suit both in a great way.

You will find comfortable, large beds and country-style furnishings in every tent. You also have hot water, electricity, luxury sanitary ware, bed linen, towels and kitchen linen. The tent has its own theme and has been furnished with care, so it really has its own character!

In Portugal it cools down nicely in the evening, so you can always enjoy a pleasant temperature at night. In the early and late season we have, if desired, heat sources to create a pleasant temperature in the tents.

All facilities in the garden are available to everyone. Down in the garden we have the swimming pool with jets, the sun beds and the cozy bar. "Upstairs" we have various seats in the sun or shade, a large outdoor kitchen with (pizza) oven, a wood-fired BBQ and one for gas for the quick pull.

But also in the immediate surroundings is a lot to see and do. There are various quintas around, perfect locations to have a great meal or enjoy a nice drink in the sun.

On short distance you will find a few of the most wonderful villages, such as Piódão: awarded as the most wonderful village in 2017.

Furthermore you can go on a wine excursion, visit local markets and the mesmerizing Monte Alto, go for a Stand Up Paddling course and do a course 'Portuguese cooking'.

On our glamping we offer:

  • Massages
  • Yoga class
  • Pilates lesson
  • Stand-Up Paddling
  • Walking routes (also with guidance)
  • Mountain bike trail
  • Swimming in the river or the pool
  • Trail run routes

This glamping is also close to Coimbra, the 2003 cultural capital of Europe. Here you can visit the old university and both the old and the new cathedral. There are also a lot of monuments, like monasteries and museum - really a lot to do!

About the area

This glamping is located on the bank of the Alva river, one of the cleanest rivers in Portugal. Be sure to go Stand Up Paddling or canoeing on this river at least once, it's all possible here. 

But it's not only watersports. Go hiking or mountain biking and see multiple places in the near region.

There's are enough special things to see a bit further away from the quinta. The Fraga da Pena, where the water falls down from 70 meters, the Roman excavations of Conimbriga or the National park do Bussaco are all within an hours reach

Wij zijn José (Portugees), Sabine (Nederlands) en Sem (6jr een mooie mix van ons beiden). Sinds juli 2018 wonen wij in Portugal. We komen hier echter al veel langer, dus wij kennen de mooiste plekjes en zullen je die dan ook zeker laten zien / laten ontdekken op eigen houtje. Wij zijn helemaal verliefd op Portugal en willen dit overbrengen op onze gasten. We zullen jullie dus alles vertellen wat jullie willen weten. Wil je alleen maar lekker genieten bij het zwembad of zwemmen in de rivier, ook dat is prima!

    Beautiful glamping in Portugal!

    Great for lazing in the shade of the poplars. Affordable bar with friendly staff. The water is wonderful and the kids have been thought of. A real sandy beach, diving board and a floating walkway. Pedalos and canoeing possible.
