The refreshing ‘Tamega’ river flows alongside the entire length of our property. Due to its natural current, there are no mosquito’s to be found!

Quinta do Rio was once a traditional wine farm (Vinho Verde) with large wine terraces. The camping facilities are therefore unique and versatile. You can choose a spacious camping pitch on one of these many terraces…right between the vines. The large plane tree / mimosa / cork oak / chestnut trees account for shady spots.

If piece of mind and heart is what you’re after. There’s no better place to lay your hat. You will be amazed. If you look closely you can see the hops, nightjar, kingfisher and even an otter. On our own property you will be welcomed by our dog, cat.

If, on the other hand, you’re in for some action or culture, you will have a hard time dividing your time between all this region has to offer! Such as hiking, mountainbiking, swimming, paintball, horseback driving, offroad trips (with own vehicle)

Many activities and beautiful cities.

Cities like Guimaraes, Braga, Porto, Amarante are waiting for your visit. As well as authentic little villages where time stood still, where a little old lady in traditional black widow-clothing, her face weathered by the extensive work on the land, wishes you a ‘boa tarde’ while you patiently wait for her goats to deblock the road ahead of you. Winding roads with amazing views throughout the natural parcs…

Your intenernal you is well catered for. You can start the day with fresh bread or a hearty breakfast. Several times a week, delicious dishes will be prepared for you. We can also advise a couple of good local restaurants.

Since Quinta do Rio is located right in the middle of unspoiled nature,we can be reached by the means of a 2 km long wide dirt road. The nearest town for your shopping and such can be found at 4 km: Mondim de Basto.https://municipio.mondimdebasto.pt/

What our guests say

Aad Metz 26-08-2019

Quinta do Rio is a great campsite on a river. The top spots are on the river, but all the other places are quite large. Various activities are organized inside and outside the campsite. We ended up staying longer than intended.

John & Silvia 9-8-2019

When we arrived after 2 long travel days, we immediately had the ultimate holiday feeling. What a rest and you will quickly find your relaxation. We had a beautiful, spacious A spot on the river where you can relax after an effort or a hot day! You have to love back to basic and we do so it was fantastic! You have everything you need: toilets, showers, an eco cooler, a baker who comes with fresh bread in the morning and there is always a cold drink at Jochem. But above all peace and relaxation in a beautiful natural environment

Great place!
Arrive and have a vacation right away! Wonderfully quiet, beautiful nature and complete relaxation! Swim in the beautiful river (with otters) and enjoy the generous places! Walking, cycling, canoeing, anything is possible here …… Thank you Jochem for this wonderful paradise! In short: super place for people who do not need an animation team to have fun! Big 10!
