General Description:-
The site despite being just metres from the motorway is very rural and we found very peaceful although the are guard geese close to the gate that warn of approaching strangers and hens free to scratch about round the site, OK I know hens tend to be quite but the roosters that attend them  are happy to scream their “cock a doodle doos” at all times of the day and night and a randy turkey tried its best to noisily woo a very reluctant lady turkey. Now anyone who knows me however little will be aware that one woof from a dog and I will be climbing the walls but the various bird noises on the site were, to us at least, in no way intrusive simply adding to the laid back ambiance of the site.

Dutch owners Irene and Hans were a mine of local information and happy to help in any way they could and with a very helpful and friendly cosmopolitan staff team that included Portuguese, Latvian, Austrian and American nationals a great many languages were covered.

Toilets and Showers:-
The showers and toilets were kept spotlessly clean during the time we were there, which was a at the beginning of the season when occupancy was low and it would have been very tempting to save cash by cutting cleaning staff.

There was a service wash laundry on site but with the rain over the past few weeks we had so much laundry to do we took it all to the local “Intermarche” which has a two washer and one dryer laundrette in the car park with one of the washers taking an 18 kg load, however as with all things on this site I’m confident it would be reasonably priced.

The restaurant is closed in the early season but judging by the soup provided on the Friday get togethers we attended the meals would be of a high quality.

Although this was our first visit to this site it has gone to a very high position in our favourite sites list going straight into the top three along with Camping Alentejo and Quinta das Cegonhas Parque Rural, strange our top three Portuguese campsites are all Dutch owned.

Camping Clogs owners Irene and Hans are both talented people are passionate about giving their customers the best experience they can. We will return.

We stayed here for fourteen nights and paid the ACSI price of €19.00 per night.
