This unique octagonal glamping getaway near Lisbon in Portugal can accommodate up to four guests and gets its name from the round dwellings of South Africa, which are typically built out of wood, stone, or clay. This one-of-a-kind accommodation is made of wood, with lovely wooden walls, flooring, and a stunning ceiling.

In the spacious retreat there are two easychairs while the sitting room has a modern dining table and four chairs for guests to enjoy a meal in the evening. The open kitchen area boasts a four-burner gas stove, a fridge, a water cooker, and a coffee machine while crockery and pans are also available. The hosts provide towels and tea cloths too.

The principal bedroom has two single beds that are pushed together but can also be pulled apart if guests request. The other bedroom has bunk beds that can be pulled apart as well and linens are included. A baby bed can also be provided. The bathroom has a shower, a vanity, and a toilet.

In addition, there are French doors that open out to a large terrace in the shade of an old tree. On the terrace is a dining table, four chairs, and two garden chairs. From the garden chairs, guests can look out over the valley and the orchards, as this accommodation is situated in one of the most beautiful places in the garden with lots of privacy. Guests of this accommodation are allowed to use the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen too.

Location + Surroundings

  • National Park
  • River
  • Beach

This site is situated 10 kilometers from the famous Costa da Prata, a hundred kilometers above Lisbon between two towns Alcobaça and Caldas da Rainha. This region is very suitable for hiking and boasts dramatic scenery at every turn. Glampers can either go out on their own or take advantage of the local guides that know a lot about the history of Portugal in general, but also about the aspects of the region and the spots they'll visit.

The climate is excellent year round so depending on when guests go, they can either take a walk among the blossoming fruit trees in March, see the ancient dinosaur footprints in May, experience the spectacular cliffs of Salir do Porto in June, or see the wonderful old Convents of Alcobaca and Batalha in autumn. The beautiful walk through the spa town of Caldas da Rainha, where glampers can visit the thermal baths of Queen Leonor, might also be an option. Finally, there is a special tour of all the terraces along the beach. Read More

Salir do Porto, San Martinho do Porto, and Nazaré are popular resorts in the neighborhood, however, there are also quieter beaches, such as Salgado, where the sea often gets rough. For the children, the bays of Nazaré and San Martinho are much more suitable. Alcobaça is well-known for its Monasteiro, the biggest church and convent in Portugal.

The property was built in 1153 and is connected with the foundation of the state. The well-known story of lovers King Pedro and Ines de Castro stems from here. Caldas da Rainha, which means hot water baths of the Queen, is also nearby. Every morning, there is a fruit market on the Praça da Fruta.

10 minutes from Caldas, glampers can visit Óbidos. Óbidos is a beautifully restored town, totally surrounded by walls, and the citizens of Óbidos often organize all kinds of events. Being in Portugal means there are lots of festivals with lots of dining and wining.

The food in Portugal is absolutely marvelous. If guests don't like to cook for themselves, they can always go to a restaurant. There are so many possibilities and eating out is always cheap. There are numerous typical Portuguese restaurants where the portions of meat or fish can be enormous! The owner’s personal favorite is Dona Alentejano. The quality of the food is very good and the atmosphere is charming. Guests shouldn't forget to eat at a fish restaurant on the beach in Bom Succeso.
