Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Find a gorgeous, sandy beach on your doorstep

  • Surrounded by a pine forest, so get ready for some great views

  • Why not take a day trip to Lisbon?

As Guincho lies within a pine forest behind the Guincho dunes, you might be surprised to discover that this is the ideal parc to combine a beach and city break.

The facilities at this ‘Orbitur’ parc include two pools, with one especially for kids, a play area, games room, football, tennis - plus great eating guaranteed from the restaurant and takeaway. Just 1km away, down a safe footpath, you’ll discover a wide, sandy beach, which is perfect for surfing and windsurfing, especially in July and August when the waves are high. Waves aren’t the only thing that’s high here - you may have your own Marilyn Monroe moment when the wind arrives. This parc is also a great base to get out and discover what Portugal has to offer. So why not hire a car (prices are very reasonable here) and spend a few days exploring the fashionable resorts of Cascais, just 6km away and Estoril, 8km away? Or you could even leave the coast and head for the beautiful city of Lisbon.

      Out and about

      As the parc is located within the Sintra Cascais Natural Park - one of just 13 in the country - you have access to some wonderful scenery. Just a short drive away is the charming town of Cascais, with a bold but beautiful mixture of modern and traditional architecture. The western-most point of Europe, Cabo de Roca is definitely worth a day out, as is Portugal's capital city, Lisbon and can be reached via a bus which stops right outside the entrance and takes you right into the centre. Also worth a visit is Lisbon Zoo as well as the Oceanarium, described as 'a deep-sea diving experience without the risks'!

      The worst weather on a holiday we have ever had, 5 days out of 7 were wet and windy, Obviously that has nothing to do with the camp or Eurocamp. The areas we was able to use were clean, ie Internet area, Bar, shop. Due to the weather we were unable to use the pool on the 6th day when we were finally treated to a day of sun, the pool had closed for the season- typical lol. The beach at Guincho was very nice although not for a gentle swim due to the ferocity of the waves but a haven if you're a surfer. George and Gina the reps for Eurocamp was absolutely lovely people, very helpful with suggestions for things to do and the caravan was lovely and clean when we got there with a fabulous view of the sea. The Reps caravan had all the booklets, brochures and maps you would need and for families all sorts of games, books, bats and balls etc. There are a couple of really nice restaurants locally, the Indian one was Excellent value for money and service and the food was really really good. Cascais is a nice and busy resort with a couple of lovely beaches and many shops and restaurants. We went for a nice drive down the coast, through Estoril, Carcavelos and a few inbetween and ended up at Lisbon Docks, It was a nightmare to get back out of LIsbon due to the traffic and weather, a couple of locals did say it's always busy due to being a large place. Overall everything was Good value for money, just the weather let us down.

      I found the facilities in the park a bit limited but it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful, we are not really beach people soc there wasn't a lot to do in the area surrounding the park, a car is definitely needed to get about.

      Lovely holiday and everyone working at the site was so friendly. We have done several eurocamp holidays and we've never previously received star quality treatment from our courier that we did in guincho. George and Gina were welcoming and helpful beyond belief. Excellent!! I do think however that the brochure should make it clearer that the beach is a pretty long walk.

      Our holiday in Guincho without a doubt was made by the excellent couriers George and Gina. If they had not been there, yes it would have been a nice holiday but nowhere near as good. The parc is in a lovely location and suited us, a retired couple (but not that old) down to the ground. It was well run, quiet and very well kept. A car we think is essential but lots to see and do within a 20 mile radius. Some very nice restaurants within walking distance.

      The mobile was very clean and lovely smelling on arrival, the main courier George was excellent and a credit to Eurocamp considering he was retired and therefore not the normal younger courier and took the job very seriously, the camp was clean, the pool was lovely and clean and the excellent weather helped.

      Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay here and would recommend it particularly to couples/friends as there are better facilities for children on other Eurocamp sites.
