The Serra de São Mamede is a often not yet discovered part of the, for many so unexpected,  North Alentejo.

On our Facebookpage you always can follow our latest news and nice pictures from the campground and surroundings.

On our campground we created 32 very spacious pitches on 30.000 m2. But with relatively a lot more facilities, it is located in the middle of the beautiful nature of the protected natural park, in which you are only surrounded by the magnificent, preserved flora and fauna.

The campsite near Castelo de Vide is described by the dutch ANWB-guide as belonging to the best selected smaller campsites.

The mountains in the Natural Park Serra de São Mamede constitute the look of this magnificent, nature rich part of the Alentejo, the high mountains are alternated by hillyplains and it’s the perfect area to discover the archeological remains of the former presence of people from earlier distinctive historical periods.

Birds belonging to the richness of the environment

The Park is located at the south side of the Tagus river, while crossing it, you can enjoy the wonderful view on this river and its borders.

The highest point of the Serra de Sao Mamede park is at 1025 meters above sea level.

The beautiful mountain range with its preserved flora and fauna acts as a barrier to condensation, creating a microclimate with a level of precipitation and humidity higher than in the surrounding areas, and therefore has originally a rich and above all diverse vegetation.

The northern part of the National Park is dominated by chestnut and oak trees, and as you go further south, you will find the holm oak forests as well, and of course the traditional cork-oak trees. But also in the close vicinity of our Campsite Beira-Marvão Alentejo you will find many cork oaks.

To be able to discover the many treasures of this protected area, the national park has organised five perfectly walkable footpaths. Along these, you will have the opportunity to admire the greatly varied vegetation, as well as no less than 8 rare raptors, like the vulture, flyer and Bonelli eagle – the latter being the symbol of the Park.

Not so many bird species in the wider region and around the vicinity of the campsite

With a bit of luck you will see a wild boar or dear pass by, now returning to the Serra de São Mamede, thanks to the efforts made to reconstruct their habitats. On a regular basis, we also see magnificent little foxes walking around in the area; they also are a part of this natural environment.

But if you are also interested in the archeological heritage, the places Portalegre, the district capital, Castelo de Vide and Alegrete with their beautiful mansions and monasteries are a joy to visit, here you can get a taste of the aristocratic life as it once was part of life.

But the real cultural gift you will receive near our campsite Beira-Marvão Alentejo, when you visit the current archaeological excavations of Ammaia in our municipality Marvão. Elsewhere on this website you will find more information about this, in view of archaeology, important location.

Archaeological sites

Also prehistoric tombs with burial can be found very close to Camping Beira-Marvao Alentejo.

Of course – to learn even more about the rich cultural life in Alentejo – a visit to the Manufactura das Tapeçarias may also be recommended for this holiday region, here, in Portalegre, the production of the real art of tapestry takes place.

The surroundings of the campsite in this protected natural park are characterised by many nice small restaurants, often run by families, with the mother of the house wielding the sceptre in the kitchen. You may enjoy many tasty regional delicacies, such as lamb stew, roast sucking pig and the delicious desserts, like boleima, of course, cakes and a traditional serradura, a typical portuguese pudding. In several restaurants inside the municipality Marvao you can also find chestnut cakes.

This and a lot more, we’re pleased to offer you from our campsite, in the next pages you find all information which we’ve gathered for you with pleasure. We’ll be happy to give you more detailed information after your arrival at our campsite.Small-scale farmers working man with cart and mule towards his country piece

A campsite, here known as the Parque de Campismo e Carvanismo Beirã-Marvão Alentejo, in one of the most magnificent areas of the Serra de São Mamede Nature Park. Where the former agriculture is still practised today, and actually may be referred to as a separate culture, your nostalgic feelings are bound to resurface during your vacation with us.

After all, what’s more beautiful than still being able to see a farmer, agricultor at work, still going to work with a donkey or muleto provide his whole family with potatoes, vegetables and fruits for most of the year.

But because of the location, the campsite is also located within the International Tagus Naturepark, another unique piece of nature in Europe which has no equal. Here you can enjoy both, the portugese national as well as the international nature park which “comes from” Spain.

We look forward to seeing you at our Nature Campsite with salted water Swimming Pool, in Beirã-Marvão!

If you want to make timely reservations for your own pit, we kindly ask you to use the reservation form.

But an e-mail, or if you prefer to give us a call of course will be welcome as well. Under “Route and Contact” you will find all our data.

Naturally we can guarantee you a spacious campground and all services in your own language.

We speak English which means we like to serve you with all information about the campsite, the near situated castle and the many events and historical points of interess, in your own language, English.

We also created maps of the most important places in the immediate vicinity, as Marvao, Castelo de Vide and Santo Antonio das Areias, showing the many interesting sites, we inserted also the shops, the butcher, baker, ATM and restaurants.
