We rented Fern last two weeks and had an incredible time in the Algarve! All was perfect and even the little issue we had with the fridge was fixed in no-time by Lloyd and Thom. Thanks a lot for the adventure!

We rented one of the newer VW vans and had the BEST time travelling down the West coast of Portugal!
Thanks to Nicolas and Siesta campers for making this trip so easy to organise, the Van was equipped with everything needed for a great holiday!
Have already recommended siesta campers to friends and can't wait to do it again! :-)

“Unforgettable travels in *the* classic camper”
Reviewed May 5, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

people found this review helpful

A big one ticked off the bucket list - driving a classic VW camper. We were allotted "Apple", a green 1976 Westfalia Berlin Volkswagen camper imported from Canada.

The interior looked very authentic - the real deal. Great attention to detail, right down to the green mugs and cutlery handles!

The van chugs along nicely - you won't get much over 50mph. You will cause tailbacks but you'll also get thumbs up and admiring glances from every other driver coming in the opposite direction. The van is surprisingly easy to manoeuvre. That said, it's small enough inside and heads were banged more than a few times.

Claire was helpful when we had a couple of small queries - it was good to know support was at hand.

Some tips 1) April nights on the Algarve can be pretty cold so you might want to take your own sleeping back 2) You will need midge spray.

As for the Algarve, we were told by friends to head for the wilder west coast rather than the more touristy south and didn't regret it. Beautful beaches and half the time you'll virtually have them to yourself.

Hi Jon
Thanks so much for your awesome review and sharing your tip. We're glad that you loved driving Apple she's a real classic. She even has the original 70's fabric that we tracked down in America. So happy you noticed the details. Thats My touch ,whilst the boys in the workshop pore over the exterior details.
Hope to see you again soon
Peace and Love

We rented a van for a week to visit the algarve with our two kids, aged 10 and 13 and we had a GREAT time! Thanks to nicolas in Lisbon everything was easy. Everytime we had a question he answered and found solutions immediately, an adorable young man. We picked up our van from oriente station and our adventure started... and what a great experience! I had first discovered siesta campers in a documentary (échappées belles) and had been seduced by the concept though we hardly ever go camping!
I love the spirit of siesta campers. They are very pro but they keep in mind our need to sometimes disconnect from our crazy world, to feel free to drive where the road leads you and suddenly take time to enjoy a beautiful sunset drinking a glass of wine and eating delicious oysters!
So do not hesitate and hop on a siesta campers van!
Bon voyage

My son and I spent a week traveling Portugal and Southern Spain in a well equipt VW Atlantic. Nicolas met us at the airport as planned and all was professional and detailed. The van was clean and ready for our adventure. This vehicle does very well on the highways and back roads. I booked a California as they are set up better for comfort and ease of use but they had not arrived in time. I would definitely select the California over the Atlantic if you have a choice. Nights were still quite cold in April, so be sure to ask for lots of blankets and maybe even a space heater. All in all the trip was great and staff were always only a phone call away, checking in with us every few days. I would highly recommend this family run company.
Thank you Nicolas and Claire!

Many thanks for taking time to leave us a review, We really appreciate it. It was shame about the Californias not arriving, VW told us 4 months but it actually took 6 months. Anyway we glad you enjoyed our Atlantic van. Our new Atlantics now come with the California roof from the factory. So it's like the California but more robust.
We would be honoured to welcome you back a second time.
Peace and Love
Claire and the team.

“The best family adventure”

My husband and and I and our 6 month old recently got the California and adventured Portugal for 2 weeks. We had such an incredible time and the van was just perfect. Had everything we needed and more. So thankful for siesta campers, making our Portugal experience a special one. We hope to be back and do it again one day. The best way to see all the beautiful sights ❤️

Hi Carley and family
As a young family ourselves we love to welcome other families to Portugal. We know what you need in a van as a family and we regularly take camping trips. Portugal is a very gentle place for families to explore and camp. The people are so friendly and accommodating.
come back one day we would love to welcome you again.
Peace and Love
