Overnight stay for campers “Terra das Barraquinhas”
We like to meet people from all over the world, so we’ve opened a part of our garden as an overnight stay for campers in Lousã.
The surroundings of Lousã are wonderful and well worth visiting during your trip to Portugal.
Our site is located amongst the olive groves of Lousã and has a view up to the Serra da Lousã. We have spacious places where you can park your campervan safely during the night. When you get up, you can enjoy the sun coming over the mountains of Lousã and in the evening you can watch the sunset.
The site has green grass and (still young) fruit trees and a garden with tea herbs (still in progress). Water and electricity are available. We have also simple sanitation. We want to do this in an ecologically responsible way. The shower is heated by the sun and the toilet is a dry toilet. You can also enjoy products from our garden or our own hens.
We do have a number of conditions. If you want to spend the night with us, this is only possible in a motorhome with a single rear axle, lighter than 3.5 tons and smaller than 7.5 meters. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead during your stay. Before you come, it is useful to have your sanitary facilities and grey water emptied, because this is NOT possible with us!
A big supermarket is only about 500 meters away so you can easily walk there. The centre of Lousã can also be reached on foot.
Lousã has a nice historic centre with a lot of restaurants and cafes. There are beautiful hiking trails near Lousã and in the Serra da Lousã. Near the castle is a lovely river swimming pool and a place to relax.
We have no price for staying in our garden. Instead, we trust you’ll like our location and the overnight stay for campers, and we would invite you to leave a donation for us to help us maintain and improve the place and ensure future visits to our place (for example, watering the green grass, fuel for the lawnmower, sawdust for the toilet, reparations, ….).
For the use of electricity, we charge € 3, – because we have to pay for it also.
You can find this beautiful place at:
N 40.11863, W 8.25399
N 40°07’07”, W 8°15’14”
Or along the road Estrada da Telhada, Gândaras.
We hope to meet you one day in our garden and have a chat. This is possible in the languages Portuguese, English, Dutch and German.
If you want to discover the highlights of the mountains, but you cannot or do not want to do this with your own transport, we can take you. Just ask us about the possibilities and availability.
