- who are we -
We are Leo and Gerwien van Rij. Since the summer of 2017 we live with our three kids in the green heart of Portugal, in Lousã. Our roots are dutch.
With our family we like to tavel in our own campervan and visited a lot of places in Europe. Portugal always had a special place in our hearts, because of the friendly people, the peace we feel in this country, the beautiful environment and the mediterranean climate.
In the Netherlands we turned our hobby since 2013 into our work. There we have in the North of the country a compagny where we rent Volkswagen campervans. The name of the compagny is VW Holiday.
Because we like to change our loves into our lifes, we turned our favorite holiday country into our home country and moved to Portugal. And we bring with us a part of our compagny and rent also in Portugal our VW campervans under the name GoCamperPortugal. So we can give people the possibility to discover this wonderful country by fly & drive.
Because we love to meet other travellers we make a part of our garden available for other campervantravellers.
Besides all the campervanstuff we have also a holiday house in the historical centre of Lousã.
We bring all those activities together under the name Portugal Travelling.
Because if you come with a VW camper from us, with your own camper or do you prefer a holiday cottage in Portugal, we are all Portugal Travellers.
GoCamper Portugal is a part of VW Holiday and has in Portugal 3 Volkswagen campers for rental. These campers can be picked up and drop-off at the airport of Porto and Lisbon, or in Coimbra.
Besides we have an Alojemento Local in the historical center of Lousã with a view on the mountains of the Serrs da Lousã.
And we receive guests with a camper in our garden.
"We had a wonderful tour. The camper did well. We were very pleased with the hospitality of the owners. Everything was well arranged. "
“I enjoyed my vacation in Portugal. I hope to visit you sometime and to rent a camper with you. Good luck with the rental. "
“What a freedom this campervan has given to us. After a number of years with a large camper on the road, we opted for a small camper this year. We have seen so much more and were able to experience much more of the country. In one word: Great !! ”
