There’s something special about rolling around in an iconic VW campervan. Whether you’re a seasoned couple of travellers, a surfer dude, or a family of novice nomads, it’s all about that uniquely exhilarating mixture of freedom, relaxation, and adventure.
With a little help from Siesta Campers, you can experience all the charm of Portugal from the comfort of your chosen, much-loved VW campervan – with creature comforts, handy guide books, and 24-hour assistance all included.
Siesta Campers is the creative brainchild of friendly owners Claire and Loyd – both frequent campervan travellers who have been sourcing and building the perfect van accommodation for years. Not only is supreme attention to detail guaranteed, but expert advice is always on hand, whether you want to find a secret spot to rest your heads, or you’re just curious about what to pack!
All you have to do is choose your perfect campervan from a wide and colourful selection, each with its own fascinating story to tell (plus the ‘Captain’s Log’ diary inside each van features travelogue-style scribbles and advice from former guests – feel free to add yours!)
For example, Martha the 1970 Westfalia camper is an immaculate time-capsule for two, featuring original 70’s upholstery and a rebuilt 1600cc engine. Meanwhile, vibrant Saffron was rescued from a scrapyard, then lovingly transformed into the perfect adventure-haven for up to four people.
Once inside your van, you can expect the highest quality interiors, bespoke-crafted from sustainable materials. You can also expect freshly-laundered bedding, a table and chairs, a two-ring cooker with a sink and glass lid, and even a ‘proper’ fridge.
Not to mention all those little ‘extras’ that make a camping holiday so gloriously free and easy, from kitchen essentials and a washing line with clothes pegs, to luxuries including an espresso coffee pot and a sunshade.Keep reading
