Recommendations for stops between Porto and Lisbon?

I've been this way before but it seems a very long time ago.

If anyone has recommendations I'd be very grateful. The odd campsite would be fine but mostly Aires or wilding. We do like a town with a cup of coffee and something going on 🙂 but my sister has quite limited mobility so close is good.

TIA.

Your better qualified to answer the question then Jean......

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Estarreja sounds familiar but doesn't look it!

Thanks for that Neil.

Yes Ray, I just wish I'd a better memory!

How about the pretty fortified town of Obidos north of Lisbon. It is a while since I was last there but it had an Aire just a short walk from the main gate into the town. Otherwise check out the >Orbitur chain< of campsites which are available thoughout Portugal

Tomar. Used to be a municipal campsite, but because of licensing and a fall out with central government it is now an Aire. No EHU, but all other stuff (cold water only)
Great town just over the bridge, all very level and a street train up to the historic old Knights Templar HQ
Lots of cafés and restaurants.

Thanks peedee, we passed fairly close to that today. We left Nazaré which we really enjoyed, especially their outdoor museum with the boats on the sand and the fish drying the old-fashioned way on large frames the size of a bed, tilted towards the sun. Old women in traditional costume were selling the dried fish.

We were looking for somewhere to do a wash and headed for the campsite in Vila Franca da Xira - only to find it had no washing machines! We weren't at all impressed by the site - it was tiered with very little room to drive round, there were a number of really scruffy looking vans and tents; tho we got a great reception and the facilities were clean. It was also high up with little possibility of my sister being able to investigate.

So we moved on, to Fonte da Telha - parking right above a fabulous beach, eating places right next door and we've thoroughly enjoyed watching all that's going on along the beach.
