My friends and I hired a car and drove to Alegre Camping from Lisbon airport - the drive took us just over 2 hours. Upon arrival our hosts greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us to our tents. The land and views are amazing! So quiet and peaceful with the gentle sound of a nearby stream and wonderful olive and fruit trees. Continental breakfasts were served each morning (the owners took note of what we liked and adapted the breakfasts to suit - a very nice touch). They also provided us with information of the local area; booked restaurants for us (great food!) and provided us with directions to local places of interest and activities (Marvao is a must see and wine tasting was an excellent day out). We combined days out with days spent by the lake, reading and relaxing. I can't recommend Alegre Camping highly enough. What an amazing place – I already have plans to return!
