Our home

This is the equivalent of our second home in Portugal, England being our main residence. The chalets are set in a small (1 hectare) private enclosure, surrounded by open countryside. They are rustic in style, so idealy suited to those interested in exploring the expansive outdoor environment or wishing to sight-see. As we have a number of chalets (5 in total) people can have the choice of what suits their needs and size of party best.

Who we are

  1. We are Gijs and Linda. Gijs is a retired Dutch geologist who has lived and worked in many countries around the world. Linda is a Scot from Glasgow but has spent most of her working life in London, initially in the world of television and latterly as a freelance recruitment specialist. We now run this little campsite in Portugal not in a desire to become wealthy but to meet interesting people and provide a "friendly haven" for travellers visiting this part of portugal. We of course still enjoy to travel widely ourselves in the "quiet season" and therefore welcome any interest in swapping any of our premises to accommodate this interest.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The local environment is that of a typical and unspoilt Portuguese village surrounded by pine and eucalyptus forests, olives and vines. We are located in a lovely peaceful rural setting in the hills 10 kms above the historical city of Tomar (Knights of the Templar HQ) and within 3 kms of the beautiful Lake Zezere where you can enjoy many water based activities often in total solitude. Further afield is Fatima, the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic coast, and of course the fascinating cities of Lisbon and Porto are just over one and a half hours away.
