Holiday Rental House
We provide comfortable camping, just for grown-ups, in a spacious five metre diameter bell tent, with a couple of deckchairs close by to soak up the sun, surrounded by wildflowers and bookended by old oak trees in ICNF-protected woodland. There's a double bed inside and all the convenience you would expect in a hotel room - but under canvas. Set in the slowly-beating heart of Central Portugal in idyllic surroundings, in the tiny village of Moita Negra (look for Mouta Negra on Google Maps). Perfect for couples, but if you're a solo traveller or travelling with a friend, you can always rent the Strawberry Tree Tent (Tenda de Medronho), which can house up to two single beds. Or you can even hire another couple of tents if there are more of you.

There are are two windmills a short distance from us - one in Moita Negra itself and one in Melriça - that are easily accessible on foot and command spectacular views of the countryside that surrounds us.

Interaction with guests
Because we are in quite a rural area, car rental is recommended. There is very little traffic - mostly tractors! Mouta Negra is a very small village - only about twelve houses here, and everyone (apart from us) is Portuguese.

This was our second visit to Dolittle holidays, and we were delighted to find that the site had improved even on the fabulous standards we found last year. As always, our hosts Dave and Ali were a delight, and they could not have done more...More

We were fortunate enough to be the very first visitors to Doolittle Holidays, arriving after a very straightforward car journey from Lisbon. Ali met us in the local village in order to show us the way to the site, where a very welcome cold drink...More
