Mobile home rental in Portugal
Before setting off for a holiday in Portugal, you first need to decide on which region and which Portuguese campsite to stay in. Great news! Yelloh! Village has a number of campsites by the sea, so you can enjoy a happy holiday on the water’s edge. You can rent , and cottages, as well as camping pitches.
So take your pick, whether you’re keen to explore the south of the country, or would prefer somewhere closer to Lisbon, Porto and northern Portugal.
Camping in the Algarve
The most southerly region of Portugal is home to many of the most popular tourist attractions. With its stunning coastline, including the Ria Formosa, the region appeals to holidaymakers who love to laze, as well as anyone who enjoys water sports or ambling along the shore. However, the Algarve is also well known for its natural caves which create some magnificent scenery on the Atlantic coast. If you spend a holiday on the Algarve, you simply must visit the spectacular Benagil cave.
You can also take the time to tour the lovely towns with their characteristic architecture. Faro, Albufeira, Lagos and Sagres, for example, are not to be missed. Some buildings are predominantly white while others are multicoloured, but they are all worth a visit.
Camping in the Central Region
Although less well known than the Algarve, the Central region has plenty to boast about. Its wide variety of landscapes will appeal to many tourists. There’s the coast, Coimbra and its university, Aveiro, the historic villages, the Roman city of Conimbriga, the Tagus International Natural Park and the Serra da Estrela Natural Park... a holiday in Portugal’s Central region will leave you awestruck. And take note – our list is far from exhaustive!
Another advantage of this region is that it lies between Lisbon and Porto, so you can make a trip to the capital or head for the banks of the Douro. If the many wonders of the Central region are not enough to keep you happy, of course!
Picking your campsite is going to be a tough decision. But whatever you decide, you’re sure to discover some stunning places.
Campsites by the water
When you say Portugal, you automatically think of the Atlantic. The ocean borders the whole of the west coast as well as the southern tip of the country. Seaside campsites are therefore highly popular for a holiday in Portugal, because you can enjoy the fine sandy beaches and everything that goes with them. And in Portugal, the coastal climate is extremely pleasant all year round!
However, it would be a shame to think that camping holidays in Portugal are all about the ocean and nothing else. The country is also criss-crossed by an array of wonderful rivers and streams! The Tagus, Douro, Támega, Minho, Mondego and the Guadiana are all beautiful and an excellent antidote to the summer heat. Which is why many tourists prefer a riverside campsite during the hottest parts of the year. The coast remains highly appealing, of course!
Finally, there are also the lakes! The vast majority of them are located on the Azores islands but there are some, such as the Lagoa de Cerveira, on the mainland.
As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities to alternate sightseeing with swimming! And at all our Yelloh! Village campsites, you’ll find a water park, a highly sought-after feature for families on holiday!
Campsite rentals in Portugal
Renting a mobile home in Portugal is the obvious choice when you want to discover the country from another destination. With the distance, this is an excellent choice. Alternatively, you can opt for a camping pitch. In such beautiful natural surroundings, sleeping in a tent, caravan or camper van has its own appeal!
If you’re looking for optimal comfort, however, our Yelloh! Village rental units are ideal. Our cottages, chalets and furnished tents offer home-from-home comfort. Best of all, some cottages also come with a private spa for maximum indulgence!
Another bonus: absolutely everyone can enjoy a holiday in Portugal because you can also rent a mobile home adapted to people with reduced mobility (PRM), fitted with specially designed access ramps and offering single-storey accommodation.
In addition, you’ll have access to hotel-standard services. That’s the promise from Yelloh! Village and its campsites!
What can you do while camping in Portugal?
Great news – Portugal is teeming with attractions and activities! You’ll have no trouble putting together the perfect programme for you and your family or friends. First, with such an extensive coastline and so many rivers and streams, water-based activities will feature high on your agenda. With surfing, canyoning, boat trips, canoeing and scuba diving, you’re sure to find a way to cool off that suits you!
And if you prefer culture and heritage, you’ll find something to enjoy too. Wander through the towns and villages in the different regions to learn more about Portugal’s history. There are the royal residences and palaces, museums, shale villages and spiritual sites... a series of extraordinary excursions awaits you!
Another key ingredient in any trip to Portugal is its culinary diversity. As well as enjoying the more familiar Lusitanian fare such as bacalhau, the Pastel de nata and sardines, you should definitely sample some new dishes and desserts. Of course, seafood plays an important role in the national cuisine, but Portuguese specialities also include a range of meat dishes, sandwiches and soups that will wow your taste buds!
And then there are the Portuguese traditions and folklore. In addition to the fado music, known well beyond the borders, your stay in Portugal will be an opportunity to join in and observe the various customs, traditions and cultural values that unite the country. For example, if you’re visiting in June, you’ll be able to see how devoted the Portuguese are to their Catholic religion during the Feast of Corpus Christi. Then you can observe their attachment to their nation on Portugal Day two days later on 10 June.
