Camping and relaxing in the middle of Portugal

Camping in the green heart of Portugal, at the foot of the Serra da Estrela

We warmly welcome you to our campsite ‘Ponte das Três Entradas’. The site has 75 pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes. There are many shade-giving trees and all pitches overlook the river and a small waterfall. On the terrace you can admire the surroundings while enjoying a drink.  .

Campsite, self-catering bungalows, apartments and furnished tents

The layout of our medium-sized campsite gives an intimate feel and consists of different parts. For example, there is a big field for caravans and motorhomes, and a section under the olive trees suitable for tents and smaller caravans. The backsite is formed by a little lane alongside the river, which we’ve appropriately nicknamed ‘lover’s lane’.

If you would like to enjoy the campsite’s atmosphere, but don’t want to bring your camping gear with you, we also have bungalows, apartments and furnished tents available to rent.

Since June 2010, we, Thomas and Karin, are the lucky owners of this campsite. Our aim is to let our guests experience the authentic, friendly and relaxing Portugal!

The campsite and bar are open all year round.

 

The area: at the feet of the National Park Serra da Estrela and Serra do Açor

The campsite is ideally located for many activities, giving you the change to see and explore this lesser known part of Portugal. The air is pure, there are many small rivers and waterfalls, beautiful panoramic views, and snaking, small hill roads through the Serra do Açor and Serra da Estrela. You will encounter villages where time seems to have stopped.

Our campsite is alongside the river Alva, in which you can swim, and we also have a paddling pool on the campsite. The village Ponte das Três Entradas is unique because of its bridge with three entrances.  Underneath the bridge the rivers Alvoco and Alva merge.

 

The campsite lies at the foot of the Serra da Estrela (national park), which has the highest mountain in Portugal (continental), the Torre (1993 m). A stunning natural site with many extraordinary views, distinctively shaped granite rocks that stir the imagination, and an impressive glacier valley.

The Serra do Açor is lesser known but absolutely worth a visit with its picturesque villages, woods, waterfalls and beautiful views. One of the highlights is the slate-stone village  Piodão.

Relax or be active: your choice

You can relax or be active, an ideal combination for a rejuvenating holiday. We rent out bikes and there are various walking opportunities. There are also a number of marked mountain bike/hiking routes and we collaborate with a walking guide who can show you many special places.

The snaking, small hill roads are also excellent for touring by motorcycle!

In cooperation with Rock and River (http://www.rockandriver.com.pt/) we organise outdoor activities such as abseiling, kayaking and mountain climbing. Together we can create a programme to your liking.

Some of the nearby villages have cosy river beaches (Praia Fluvial), often with a small bar and eatery. In the winter you can go skiing on the Torre!

Ponte das Três Entradas: an ideal base for discovering the middle of Portugal!

 Come and enjoy!!
