Carlos was a kind host. It was a good experience.
An unforgettable stay, in a unique place in Portugal (micro climate); a family team led by a maestro (Carlos). Everything at your disposal, kitchen, bathrooms, toilets ... always clean thanks to Carlos and his team. I really do not understand the negative comments about this popular place of residence ... we meet people from all walks of life and the pool and the sun do the rest! full of unusual places to discover 4 or 5 km only. I liked the conviviality so I extended until the end of the month with a direct promotion on the spot on the price of the stay.
Surfer's lovers perfect for it !!!!
I highly recommend it. Good plan :)
To flee, attracts tourists for an exorbitant price!
We follow the general opinion, it is more of camping than home camping.
A lot of people for very few sanitary facilities which are nevertheless clean.
The presence of animals is pleasant but there is a lot of excrement on the tent site.
To be avoided! We found ourselves having to set up our mini-caravan in the driveway of the garage because it was so crowded. The garden surrounding the house was packed with tents! As a result, toilets and showers were insufficient and dirty, a lot of noise, all this for an exorbitant price! And a host not really welcoming and even surprised to see us... We had to wait many long minutes for him to find us a place, and for good reason....
It's not that different from a regular camping. I was expecting better from the installations. If you just focus on sleeping camp it's ok but even so the amount of dogs and chickens freely on the space just makes the grass not that clean if you know what I mean. The place is well located near lot's of cool beaches, with restaurants and grocery stores but the camping site has lot's of wasted potential. More cleanliness all around (WC, kitchen and open spaces) would make it top.
I had a very good stay at Carlos'.
I met many nice people. I really like the spirit of meeting like in the youth hostels.
It's even easier to exchange than in a youth hostel.
I really liked the shopkeepers in Janas. A lovely and very friendly welcome.
The proximity of the beach and Sintra make this place a place rich in discovery.
Carlos makes sure that the place is 100% clean and Cyril ensures the good atmosphere and the welcome.
I recommend this place
Very nice and well received :)
Great stay at Carlos' in Sintra. A big thank you to him for all his attentions, without forgetting his unavoidable assistant Cyril who always puts the good mood! Pace e salute
We were disappointed for several reasons:
- Too many people (about 70 people) for only 2 showers, 2 toilets and 2 sinks (so not clean).
- Hours of waiting in line to wash, especially when there are 4 of us in a family.
- Lots of flies and mosquitoes, probably because of the chickens that can go everywhere in the garden.
- The howling of the neighbors' dogs all night long.
- 1 only multi-socket of 8 to recharge the telephones for 70 persons
In short we thought to finish our stay on a camping in the inhabitant but it is nothing. We arrived in a garden where the tents are the ones stuck to the others and the vans of everywhere.
The concept is perhaps well out of season.
Tourist factory where only the cash drawer counts! The capacity of reception not being respected, we were the ones on the others. Carlos does not take into account the comfort of the campers. It's a shame to be so little considered in a place registered on Homecamper.
Very good reception, pleasant place to meet people of all ages and nationalities. It's very convenient to visit Sintra and to go to the ocean, the pool is nice and the kitchen is very practical. It's just a little bit a pity that too many vans and tents are accepted by Carlos, which generates a little too much proximity and waiting at the shower and toilets.
Good reception overall, Cyril always answering our requests.
Negative points too many people for home camping.
But we had a good stay.
A big thank you to Carlos for this reception in spite of the world it is with the small care for you without forgetting Cyril which helped us to leave us sand because it was bogged down.
It has all the conveniences (showers, WC, kitchen, refrigerator, freezer).
We can only recommend it.
In spite of a problem of my share at the time of the reservation, Carlos knew to find us a place for our Citroën Berlingot and our tent of roof.
At the top again thank you Carlos and Cyril the next time we will return longer.
Totally agree with the previous message. We were well received but the site is a campsite, it is not a home camping in our opinion. Moreover the number of people per square meter is impressive, I pass on the queue to access the toilets.... Bad experience
Accustomed to campsites and different camping platforms with our small truck, I could not pass on this one without saying anything ... We had booked our stay with Carlos well in advance to allow us 2 nights of comfort in Sintra, in all tranquility, and at the sight of the announcement and the photos of the camp, we told ourselves that we were going to make a pleasure during our Portuguese journey (because the most expensive) but that it would do good ... and well it was the worst! No exchange possible before arriving (neither the day before, nor the day itself). Bad surprise when arriving, the camp being able to welcome 18 people, I stopped counting as the visit went on... no place for us, we had to place us in the way in front of the entrance gate (sloping). Carlos was supposed to put us back with the departure of a camper the next day, but he directly put a new arrival in its place. We were all on top of each other, with Carlos welcoming any passenger, from igloo tents to motorhomes over 7 meters long! Our neighbors (although charming) were all disappointed by their passage here. And as for the sanitary facilities and the wait for a small shower, we don't even talk about it...
Great place with all the amenities. Carlos and his assistant Cyril are very helpful and nice. I recommend the place.
Great place and great host, he is always attentive to any need of his guests. Very kind and considerate. Too bad I couldn't say goodbye when we left. A big hug business partner!
The place is nice with all accommodations needed. Carlos put a lot of efforts to organise everything and Cyril Isa really nice guy with good advices.
the negative point: The place is really really crowded but with nice people.
Great location and lovely hosts! Best swimming pool we have been in during our trip!
The property is clean and functional. Very well equipped and maintained by Carlos, who is a great and helpful host. Only disadvantage are the roosters and birds who may wake you in the morning.
It was wonderful. Actually we had planned only one night as a stopover, however, Carlo's place has too much charm for only one night. Very comfortable due to the kitchen with equipment and the pool. Great base for exploring Sintra (we actually took an Uber there and back for 12€.) Carlos is an insanely good host, you have to like him.
We wanted to visit Sintra and we chose to sleep outside the center.
We were welcomed very kindly by Carlos.
What can I say about our stay at Carlos' place... It was extraordinary! We stayed there for three nights and we felt like at home. Carlos is really a great person: he always has a word, an attention, a sympathetic gesture towards each traveler of passage at his place. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is a great pleasure. Here, everything is done to make your life easier. Carlos provides a fully equipped kitchen, several toilets, several showers, a great patio for outdoor dining, garden furniture, a barbecue and everything is extremely clean! It is paradise. There are also animals, each one more adorable than the other. Whether you come alone, as a couple, with friends or with family. Just come and enjoy. Thank you for everything Carlos, we will be back!
Top top Carlos is great perfect setting
Excellent camping, very kind and helpful host.
The welcome is great. Above all, Carlos is a generous and pleasant person. In the exchange and the sharing, he explains with passion his way of life and his relationship with his environment. Farm, vegetable garden, orchard, too selective rigorous but without obligation... All this work done with abnegation ! An experience at Carlos' is, for those who want to hear it, an initiatory stay in the Portuguese culture and soul. As a citizen of the world, you and your children will be fulfilled if your goal is to discover more than just a place.
Thank you and congratulations to you Carlos
This stay at Carlos' was perfect! The land is beautiful. We have everything at our disposal: shower, toilet, kitchen, pool, outdoor and indoor table to eat! Everything is in perfect condition! Carlos is busy from morning to night for the well-being of the campers. He is considerate and very friendly, we even extended our stay!
I recommend him with my eyes closed and we will not fail to return there if we go back to Portugal!
At the top!!!
Everything was perfect
We had a wonderful experience during our holidays at Carlos's place. If you want to wake up in a lovely garden and enjoy the swimming pool, the silence of the nature and the good athmosphere you will love this home camping. Carlos was very helpful and nice. We highly recommend this place !
Carlos is a wonderful host we are delighted thank you for everything, a pleasant stay.
21 euros for one night for a van, parked in his driveway in the middle of literally 10 cars, 2 caravans and 5 tents. Further into his property, another 4 tents were pitched. We didn't expect to land in a home camping...
2 toilets and showers were available for clearly too many people.
Moreover, the washing machine was not mentioned as such on the site and had to be paid for at 4 euros. We only stayed there because the reservation was already paid...
We stayed 3 nights in van and caravan. The site is pretty but quickly saturated if too many people... One has a little the impression to be on a carpark when the cars are numerous... That made us miss the welcome of Carlos who was very busy at our arrival... Nevertheless, when the place is empty, Carlos is more available and is attentive. Kitchen and sanitary ok. Terrace and swimming pool very pleasant. The free-range chickens bring a lot of charm to the place! The places to visit (Lisbon, Sintra) are quickly accessible. Finally, we recommend this place if it is not saturated.
What a special place!! I feel so lucky that we found it - the best base for exploring Sintra.
Carlos was great, he responded to my booking request straight away and we arrived less than two hours later. He was friendly and funny and gave us a tour of the facilities, which were WAY more than we were expecting.
The pitches are all perfectly level and you have access to electricity and water. There were what felt like hundreds of little chicks and three very friendly dogs to keep you company, which we loved. There’s a basketball hoop, great garden, seating area, hammock, crystal clear swimming pool and a super cool, well equipped kitchen for campers to use. They really have thought of everything. The bathroom facilities are clean and well equipped, too.
We just loved our stay, nothing was too much trouble for Carlos and we really hope to revisit.
The place is great, everything is cleaned regularly. Moreover, Carlos is an awesome guy, he is fun, and will always be willing to help you. I definitely recommend this place!!
Difficult to find the location.
Carlos is very nice and good company.
I counted 5 dogs that we always have between our legs.
There was dog poop in several places.
My wife finished her shower with cold water and I could not take one because there was no hot water.
I had great days with Raquel and Carlos. The pool is great and Carlos is also the whole day to keep everything clean. Should you not come like me with the van, treat yourself to the built and furnished tent for a minimal extra charge. Great for a little time out, sightseeing of Sintra or hours on beautiful beaches. :)
Great stay with Carlos, very good place to discover Sintra. A lot of people in August but the facilities are always very clean and Carlos does his best to make the stay as pleasant as possible.
place that allows the meeting of customers coming from elsewhere and often from far away, Carlos and his wife are very welcoming, only small bemol a little too many customers at a given time entraining waitings in kitchen and bathroom
Thanks to Carlos and his family for their hospitality.
We stayed only one night, but all the necessary equipment is present to spend a pleasant stay!
I recommend Carlos' place
Nice place not far from Lisbon. However, the world present at the time of our passage left us a little quiet... The feeling of being on top of each other, not very pleasant. For only one night, it is suitable.
We had a great time. Carlos and Raquel are available and attentive.
Carlos and his wife are really nice and welcoming people. The place very well equiped : swiming pool, tables, kitchen, ... The atmosphere is fun with the tiny farm: the kids have really enjoyed. In total : the place is excellent, we highly recommandé it!
Excellent treatment. You can't ask for more.
First in gamping.. Ups and downs for us...
The pluses; a nice concept, a good quality-price ratio and a welcoming host.
The pool, the maintenance, the kitchen, the showers, everything is perfect. The animals in freedom, the meetings and the children who play add a little more
The minuses... 2 showers and toilets for 50.. Overcrowded and no schedule for the quiet in the evening. So depending on who is there..
In the hill near Sintra but on the wrong side, so plan sweater pants for the evening..
Thank you for the welcome and the services. Common areas with showers and kitchen are very well maintained. Carlos is very attentive. We recommend it!
