Location + Surroundings

This beautiful glamping site is located in the Serra da Estrela nature reserve. "Serra da Estrela" translates into "the Mountain range of the stars", and poetic imagery is good way to capture this special place. While visiting the Estrela Mountains and the surrounding regions, you will get in touch with history and nature. It is a quaint and culturally rich community that respects the traditions and heritage the region, which is home to many medieval castles.

Within walking distance of the site, you will find many old roman roads that are still intact, as well as many hiking and biking routes which take you along these roads into the nearby towns. The closest town is Faia, a village full of old time Portuguese character, and in only a 15 minute drive you will find yourself in the city of Guarda, the highest city in Portugal.

The glamping site borders the Mondego river, and because it is positioned at the beginning of the river, the water is fresh and clean, running straight from the mountains. The natural beauty of the area is mainly untouched because it is in the largest nature reserve in Portugal. The wildlife and scenery is truly breathtaking.
