eco camping

We are open for guests – to camp or to stay in the straw bale guest room

We are a small intentional eco community living in the view of the Serra da Gardunha mountains in the district of Fundao. We have been practicing permaculture and off grid living for over 10 years. At the project we host and run a variety of workshops and courses designed to promote a more natural and simple way of life.




If you are interested in coming to stay we have the option of sleeping in our straw bale guest room which has a double bed, baby cot and option for a child’s bed.

Here is the booking form.

We also offer space for those travelling with a caravan or small van.



We have a camping kitchen where you can make your own food. There are options for BBQ and/or requesting a veggie/vegan home cooked meal.


We are living off grid, so you will get the chance to try your hand at living without mains electric while you are here! Our solar systems allow us the possibility of light and charging a few items where required.


We seek to allow visitors an opportunity to live close to nature, and yet have a safe experience. It is as close to ‘wild camping’ as possible. Whether swimming in the pond or using our compost toilets, outdoor shower, practicing yoga with an amazing view, or having a massage, the Mount of Oaks provides a base to come back to yourself in the heart of nature.

Our location is a 20 min walk from the nearest village, Povoa de Atalaiaa, where Maria has a little supermarket to buy essentials. We stock local produce and basic natural items if you are in need. In any season there are plenty of things going on in the local area and you can make the Mount of Oaks your base for exploring the region.

Check out the nearest historic villages of Castelo Novo and Alpedrinha, or a little further the village of Monsanto.
