Explore everything central Portugal has to offer at our motorcycle and adventure retreat. With unique accommodation that sleeps up to 6 people our retreat is a great place to stay for couples and small groups.
We are just 5 minutes away from the local supermarket and the main village where you can find cafes, restaurants and local shops.
Our farm is situated in the country side where you wake up with only the sounds of the birds tweeting and the wildlife stirring, while you can sit with your coffee and watch the sun rise up over the farm before you begin your day.
Once you’re up and ready you can head out and explore the area, any direction will take you to some beautiful places with the most amazing views and great roads for motorbiking. You can ride for miles through gracious countrysides, Portuguese villages and stop off at many of the castle ruins which have so much history to be told or visit any of the beautiful swimming locations for a picnic and a cool off.

You will also find many off road trails along your travels which you can explore by motorbike, mountain bike or 4×4, some of which can take you to places you’d never discover on foot. You can even check out the country side by horseback at one of the local horse riding schools.
There are amazing walking trails all over varying from mild terrain to trekking across one of the highest mountains in Portugal, Serra de Estrela. Not only that but in the winter months on top of the mountain you will find a ski resort where you can hire all the equipment you’ll need for a day on the slopes.
There are endless bodies of water where you can swim, SUP and kayak, and if you’re feeling a little lazy and just want to chill out instead you can laze over the water on a novelty inflatable with a drink in hand. Or you can settle down at one of the river beaches and make use of the cafe and BBQ facilities.
Not to forget that we are also just 10 minutes from the Spanish boarder which makes for a great trip to feast on tapas and sit with friends until the sun goes down.
Throughout the year Portugal has a full calender of various motorsport events, ranging from, enduro championships, street racing, hill climbs, rallies, motocross, kart racing, baja and TT…just to name a few. These are always big events and the atmosphere is incredible. You can even take part in some of the rallies when you visit which are phenomenal and for a small fee you can eat and drink all day.
As the area is so mountainous there are plenty of places to rock climb and even teachers in the area who run climbing courses at Penha Garcia, one of the hot climbing spots. You can book tuition or if you’re already experienced you can grab your climbing gear set off as you wish.
Each Municipallity organises festas at certain times of the year which are a must when you visit. With live music, street food, market stands and lots of beer and wine the party atmosphere is in full swing until late into the night or sometimes the early hours. Penamacor itself holds one of the biggest festas in the area during the Christmas period, with live bands playing in the street, children’s entertainment and gift stands. So even if you think Portugal is just a summer destination think again. There’s so much to do all year round.

Your retreat is set on its own half an acre which is private and all for you to enjoy during your stay. You have your own entrance with plenty of space to park vehicles. We are situated on a no through road which means no passing traffic.
The accommodation is set in 2 types of unique stays with WiFi included.
One is a rejuvenated caravan with a full kitchen, including 4 burner hob, oven and grill. It has an integrated fridge with freezer compartment, a sink and worktop space.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need during your stay, pots and pans, utensils, plates, bowls mugs, cups etc and plenty of electric points. There is also a separate shower room with wash basin and a wardrobe for hanging items.
On arrival you will find a welcome platter with various treats and also cereal, milk, coffee and tea to set you up. You will also have towels and our very own bespoke chemical free, organic, solid shampoo bars and soaps bars.
Inside the caravan there is sleeping arrangements (double bed) and a dining area for 2 people.
We also have built in speakers which you can plug your phone in to, a book shelf and some overland magazines featuring Portugal. For those quiet evenings we have some traditional games you can sit and play while you sit in the peacefulness of the farm.
Unfortunately our bell tent has taken a beating with the windy weather we’ve had is currently awaiting repair, we hope this will be soon but until further notice we can only currently book for 1 or 2 guests.
For parties over 2 people we can then offer our 6 meter bell tent which sleeps 4 people in 2 double beds. The bell tent is kitted out with lighting, a sofa and coffee table too, as well as storage space for clothing. It also has electric so charging your electronics is not a problem.
The toilet is located a few meters away from the bell tent and the caravan and is an eco friendly hygienic compost toilet with an out door sink.
The outside area has a place for dining and plenty of space for chilling out with a shaded terrace.
While you have your own private area we welcome you to come and visit the rest of the farm where we have pigs and chickens and if you’re an animal lover you can get in the pens with them and they’ll eat from your hand.
On site there are also fitness sessions which are free for you to join during your stay.
