Camping Holiday
Our Latest Project enables you
to be secluded and isolated

It is set in its own private meadow in the picturesque region of Central Portugal, our tent is completely furnished including a wood burner and has mains electricity.

There are spectacular views of the mountains and it is situated within a conservation area. Be secluded and isolated from other people.

We have built a shower/toilet block which has a mains water system with a gas water heater.

There is an area for cooking facilities including a gas stove and a barbeque

We also have a secure parking area


Our land consists of 10 acres and there is a short walk from the tent to the lake.

During the summer months we have a rowing boat permanently moored on the lake

We have a large selection of tourist brochures which include information about canoeing, sail boarding, architectural visits, parks, etc.

The owners will be on site for the majority of your stay although we live in a separate building shielded from view from the property. This means that you can enjoy your stay without intrusion but we are "on hand" if required.

The nearest cafés are less than 2 miles away in Pombeiro da Beira and Sarnadela. The cafe in Pombeiro da Beira also has a small shop.

The nearest supermarkets are in Arganil which is a 15 minutes drive from Roda - Intermarche and Lidl are the main supermarkets but there are also many cafes, restaurants and small shops including take away pizza, etc.

It is possible to swim in the lake but we would suggest plastic or similar footwear be worn.

This is a perfect place for couples or a family holiday with lots of activities including walking, boating, fishing, river swimming and much more.

You will be spoilt for choice with the selection of destinations to enjoy on your trips out, including the University City of Coimbra (for shoppers and lovers of architecture), the broad white sandy beaches of the Silver Coast to the west  and to the East, the highest mountains in Portugal at Serra da Estrela.

You can have some fun using our Bobbin Sailing Dinghy

For those who like cycling we have BTwin Mountain Hybrid bicycles for hire

We have a fleet of off road and on road motorcycles 

You can choose to stay on road but, for those of you who have never tried riding off road, we can offer a gentle introduction to a whole new world of motorcycle riding.

Mix it up with mountain on road/off road experience, awesome roads climbing to a 2000 meter height in the national park thousands of unspoilt roads, breathtaking views with kilometres of forest tracks, valleys. river crossings and medieval stone villages. 


Please ask the owners for prices using our Contact Form

Our motorcycles are insured by a Portuguese company for third party only. We therefore advise that clients arrange personal holiday medical insurance which includes motorbike riding.

We can provide you with armoured vests, knee pads and waterproofs.  We encourage guests to bring their own helmet and gloves but we can provide basic helmets.  This enables clients to dress according to weather conditions in jackets and trousers that they feel comfortable in and which are worn over the armour.

The motorcycles go out with a full tank and need to be returned with a full tank

NB: Wild camping, ie. not on a campsite, is now prohibited in Portugal.

A holding deposit of £500 per rider  is payable towards any damage that you may incur to the bike and/or equipment. We ask that you sign a disclaimer before the start of your holiday and this security deposit is refundable at the end of your holiday after inspection of the bike and equipment and no damage has occurred.
