Gerês National Park is one of the most beautiful places in Northern Portugal. It is also a great spot for summer vacations, especially if you’re looking to stay away from the crowds of Algarve.
One of the things you’ll need to pay attention while planning your trip to Gerês is the accommodation. We have already told you about the best hotels in Gerês, but if you’re looking to blend in with nature and keep some autonomy, the bungalow is probably the best choice.

These are the best bungalows in Gerês!

The bungalows of Moinhos do Poço Verde are the result of the restoration of two mills that belonged to a chocolate factory. Today, they offer all the necessary commodities to an independent stay: an equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, a mezzanine room and an open space with a living and dining area.
However, their big plus is its location, among trees, by a stream of water, and a few meters away of  the village of Castro Laboreiro, that has several typical restaurants. This region is highly recommended for hiking junkies like me.
Moinhos do Poço Verde bungalows are suited to all guests, be it a family, a couple or a group of friends.

Penedino Moutain Cottage

Pichoses Gerês Camping

Pichoses Gerês Camping is a modern and well-equipped campsite located in the heart of the Peneda-Gerês National Park. The location of the campsite is excellent, surrounded by green spaces and with privileged views of the Caniçada Reservoir and the mountain. The bungalows are situated within a 7-minute walk of Canicada Lake and are close to several restaurants, cafes, and other amenities. The campsite offers a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, canoeing, and fishing. Pichoses Gerês Camping’s specialty is, as the name indicates, camping and not bungalows. However, it also has bungalows, suitable for couples with no children. However, I should warn you that the kitchen is very basic, so I’d say these bungalows are suitable for a short stay in Gerês.

Ermida Gerês Camping

I have been to Ermida Gerês Camping, a small rural campsite that is perfect for nature lovers who want to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside. The bungalows offer breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, making it an ideal location for those who want to immerse themselves in nature. The cabins are suuuuuper simple, cozy, and organized, with basic amenities such as light and sockets, and are heated during the winter months. The beds are comfortable, and the cabins are clean and well-maintained. One thing I must warn you though is that the bungalows do not provide private bathroom, shower nor private kitchen (and hence the cheap price!).
