I'm a mother of 3 (2 ladies with 9y and 2y and a baby boy) creating a permaculture place to live and share to serve the commutiny and receive visitors.
Our land is wild.
I am a yoga teacher (for children and families) and also make natural cosmetics. I sell crystals and natural stuffs for the ones who need it.

Electricity to charge small equipment and wireless internet is free in the main house (away from parking place), the free shower is solar and outside.
A hot shower inside of the house has an extra cost of 3€.
We have dogs so if you don't like dogs, please don't come.

The setting

Like in the wild land, you can see the river and the sun-rise from the place you put yourself :)
We offer a very good place to park your van or place your tent with a sunrise and river view.

The spots

We have 3 spaces.
We can't accept big vehicles. The limit is 6 meters long, if it's bigger don't book the place because after you can't enter.

The sanitary facilities

We have a dry toilet and solar shower for free. If you want a hot shower in our bathroom it would be 3€/each between 9 am till 9 pm.

The amenities

There is an electricity cable near the parking place, the internet is available ONLY near the main house.

Land & setting
  • It was as rustic as we had anticipated. We had a lovely stay, view was great too

  • Thank you for the very warm welcome, the excellent fruit at breakfast and the providential provision of solar showers. The proximity of the train station makes it easy to get to Lisbon or Sintra. Suggestion: a bigger bucket or a 2nd dry toilet would be useful, especially when the place accommodates more than 4 people.

  • The site itself is pretty rugged and not for those who want much luxury. However the very friendly host provides enough drinkable water, water in solar showers and a clean dry toilet giving the guests the basic needs for their stay. This site is certainly not the camping to spend all day on, but is rather an ideal sleeping place as a platform to explore Lisbon and the Sintra area. The train station of Alhandra is close by, but if you have a car I recommend the station of Alverca as it is easier to park there. Keep in mind the terrain is not very friendly to tents as the stones and bamboo that grows between them can cause some serious damage.

  • Hello, I'll try to be as clear as possible. First of all, the positive points. Once you've booked, Claudia is always available by phone to answer any questions you may have. Access to the site is fairly straightforward, it may look impressive but I drive in 6 meters of extended traffic and we had no trouble getting down to the gravel road. The view of the site is very pretty at dusk. The site is 30 minutes from Lisbon airport. On the negative side, the site is on a cliff face, and although you can find some flat ground, if you're in a tent it's very windy. We didn't get to see Claudia as she was away for the two days we were there. The solar showers are not suitable, because even though it was 25 degrees on the days we were there, the water was not hot. There's no drinking water point, but Claudia gave us a 5L water can + other water cans to wash our dishes. All night long we heard the neighborhood dogs barking, and Claudia's dogs came to defecate and urinate on our tents when we were away during the day, and also tried to mark their territory on our tents when we were present. They also came at night to empty our rubbish bags, which I found scattered all over the site. In conclusion, we had the pleasure of visiting 3 campsites in Portugal, we were 5 people, 2 adults and 3 children, 2 campsites were half the price and offered a hot shower with classic sanitary facilities that Claudia's didn't have and were relatively quiet and the last campsite was the same price as Claudia's, was very quiet, offered the same services as the two previous campsites plus electricity and a swimming pool that Claudia's didn't have.

  • Very nice .
    Land looks like an open-air rubbish dump...

  • Claudia is a thoughtful host and the location offers a lovely panorama, but the services on offer are not worth the cost.

  • Claudia is very attentive and polite. We loved her dogs and the wonderful place!

  • Claudia is a very nice person, communication was great, she help you fast if you have a problem. The place was good for a few nights, it just need some more work on it to be very good. We didn't had a problem with the dirt road, but we came by car, bigger vehicles may
    get problems. Dry toilette and the new solar shower were fine. The view was good, enjoy the sunrise. Thank you for the presents you made for us! Overall our stay was good.

  • Lovely views,quiet site,hosts were great. Down side is we needed to be towed of the track as it was to steep and stones. We had a small caravan but not a 4x4

  • Unfortunately.... We did not settle down in the excessive slope on an unstabilized path,impracticable.... The owner proposes us as it is the habit visibly to help us with the help of the tractor of his neighbor !!!!!!.... We do not understand the acceptance of such a rent and asked for a refund..... and without return from Home Camper, we repeat our request.....

  • We had a good stay in your plot. You have spectacular views, especially in the morning. You can take nice walks around its surroundings. Clàudia and her family have been very good hosts, they have helped us with any problem we have had during these days. Especially mention their dogs are very friendly.

  • Such a lovely place to stay, Claudia is so fantastic, so welcoming. Perfect to stay here and go to lisboa by train :)

  • Everything was perfect! The location is near Lisboa, and very very pretty, with a beautiful view on the city. We had some privacy as there are plenty of trees around and some space to settle. It's a quiet place we shared with a few lovely dogs also. And last but not least - Claudia was amazing to us, welcomed us even though we arrived a bit late in the evening, provided us with everything we needed and more... Thank you so much again!

  • Very good welcome from Claudia who managed to find us a small place to stay for 2 nights despite the full pitches. The view is superb! We left the car at the station located not far from the site and then took the train to visit Lisbon which is about 35 min away.
    Perfect for travelers looking for peace and quiet and used to nature camping.
    Have a nice stay in Cláudia!

  • A beautiful view with a spacious terrain
    The solar shower was not working but we were welcomed by Claudia to take a shower at her place
    Very warm welcome from them
    50 m path a bit rocky
    I recommend

  • I booked the same day I was planning to arrive, Claudia was reactive and super welcoming even though I arrived late at night (10:30 pm).
    The land is superb, the view magnificent night and day, dry toilets in a caravan that also has a clean bed in case you want to sleep warm! Shower at the host or outside thanks to the solar shower and especially delicious full breakfast for 5 euros, I highly recommend it was great :)
    Small additional information, Claudia's dogs walk everywhere and they can bark quite often at night, for me it was not a problem because I like dogs but the information is always good to take if it's not your case!
    Go for it! It's perfect ????


    I booked the same day I was due to arrive, Claudia was responsive and super welcoming even though I arrived late at night (10:30pm).
    The grounds are superb, the view magnificent by night and day, dry toilets in a caravan which also has a clean bed in case you want to sleep warm! Shower in the host's house or outside thanks to the solar shower and above all delicious full breakfast for 5 euros, I highly recommend it :)
    A little extra info, Claudia's dogs wander around a bit and they can bark quite often at night, for me it was not a problem because I like dogs but the information is always good to take if it's not your case!
    Go for it! It's perfect ????

  • We had a very good stay at Cláudia's with a very warm welcome, the location was perfect and the view magnificent, see you soon

  • We were warmly welcomed by Cláudia. The spot was simple with grassland and bushes around but with a nice view over the nearby village. There is a Caravan with a dry toilet which we were allowed to use. The road to access the property is a little bumpy and steep but we had no problems with our T3. From Alhandra (5minutes drive) we took the train to Lisbon Santa Apolonia (30 minutes). Cláudia was reachable via WhatsApp during our stay, thank you :)

  • Claudia and her husband very nice practical next to Lisbon secure spot is well ????

  • We spent 3 nights in a van on Claudia's land. The place is perfect to go by train to Lisbon. The land is accessible by a narrow path but then very quiet, with a superb view to no opposite. Only the dogs of the house, very nice, came to visit us. It is not possible to connect your truck to water and electricity, but there is an access in the house, which makes the experience more authentic. Claudia was very flexible and available to welcome us and during our stay. Thank you again.

  • Very good time spent at Claudia and Adriano's house. Warm welcome. Very nice view.
    Advice for the visit of the city at the top.
    Very good dinner.
    Thank you very much for this nice moment.

  • Top spot with a very nice view and Claudia is a fantastic host. We were spoiled with amazingly fresh dinner and breakfast during our stay and consider to go back there soon!

  • Catalina and Adriano open their home and that's something really nice to find when you're travelling abroad. Really tasty dinner and nice evening. We'll come back next time around Lisboa.
