The bizarre case of Dutch speaking campings

Notice in one of the Dutch speaking campings

Last two nights we stayed in a Dutch speaking camping. It was the third time in this trip. There is no information on the road, no one knows about them. Most of the information inside the camping is written only in Dutch. They are quiet, very clean and most of the clients speak… Dutch.

This last camping, Quinta da Cerca, near Tábua and Mindões, is Flemish. The owners speak Portuguese with a strong accent, the toilets are super clean, the bar by the pool has excellent music and the food is full of local grown vegetables. Ah, and I’m the only Portuguese customer.

I’m looking to find a full list of these campings without TV, noise and lights at night.

[Update 25.08.2016] Here the list of the Dutch speaking campings where we have stayed with short comment:

  • Camping Latapie, Vazerac (Tarn-et-Garonne), France – lots of grass, swimming pool, people with bicycles and small restaurant/café.
  • Camping Los Cantiles, Luarca (Asturias), Spain – view over the sea, room for campers (where you can cook and eat on a table), small market and phone charging zone.
  • Quinta da Cerca, Midões (Tábua), Portugal – excellent cozy bar/terrace next to swimming pool and good dinner with local vegetables.
  • Camping Pelinos 77, Tomar, Portugal – good clean facilities, fresh eggs from camping chickens, nice location and suggestions from the owners if you have a car, but not so welcoming (paid internet, paid phone charging, paid…)
