Southcampers is a project idea that intends to materialize soon on a sustainable eco-tourism company where exceeding CO2 emissions from our vans will be compensate by our eco lodge energy’ renewable campsite. We aim to share our experience on adventure travel and community-based projects, and we offer a new way of doing tourism, respecting the values of the sustainability of the territory, landscape and culture, where the human component is the base element of our activities. We believe that it is in contact with the local community that trips of respect and care for what is known are built, enhancing the connection with the specificities of each place, namely with the people who contribute to keep this truth in traditions and customs. Come to travel with us! João & André
Me and my girlfiend rented the van for a week in the Algarve, and we've had a great experience! The van is in good conditions, and Andre and Joao have been great hosts. They gave us invaluable tips for places to visit, and quick and effective support for the maintanance of the van. I strongly recommend it!

We had an amazing experience with this camper, the best way to get to know the Algarve. It was well equipped and João and André were very helpful and friendly, always there when we needed them. We had a problem with the camper and they solved it very quickly, so it didn't disturb our plans and we could keep going. It's true the van doesn't go so fast, but that didn't bothered us at all, since we were on vacations.
We'll definetly repeat the election next time we visit the area 😊
We really enjoyed our trip with Seed. The meeting point is ideal, close to the airport and equipped with a gas station and car wash, so you can prepare the van ideally for return. Because we had no experience with driving campervans, we frequently had short queries during the trip. Joao and Andre always answered them as soon as possible - thanks for that! They also gave us helpful tips on which parts of the coast we should visit or rather leave out. All in all, we felt very comfortable in Seed and it was a great experience that we gladly recommend.
Foi uma experiência muito boa e agradável. O André e o João foram bastantes prestaveis e atenciosos, simpáticos e bem dispostos. A SeeD tem uma condução muito acessível, não tivemos qualquer problema. Uma experiência que nos deixou com o desejo de repetir. Desejo lhes o maior sucesso e a SeeD faça as pessoas felizes como fizeram a mim e à Joana.
Experiencia increíble, alquilamos la camper durante cinco días y la verdad que nos quedamos con ganas de más. El trato que nos han brindado Joao y Andre en todo momento ha sido de 10, explicándonos el primer dia todos los servicios de la van y estando atentos durante todo el alquiler. La van dispone de todo lo necesario para disfrutar al 100% de la experiencia, es muy espaciosa y se duerme muy cómodo, tanto en la cama de arriba como la de abajo. Era la primera vez que conducíamos una van, pero desde el primer momento se hace fácil de llevar. Además, es muy fácil de aparcar en cualquier lado y no hemos tenido problemas ningún día. Sin duda, repetiremos experiencia con ellos.
We had a perfect experience with André and João! The meeting point was ideal and the van was super clean and perfectly equipped when we got it. During the trip, André and João were constantly available and replied to all our questions immediately - thanks for that guys!
The van was our best buddy, we never had any technical issues and felt home from the very first second.
All in all our experience could have not been better!
We decided to rent a van on pretty short notice and were very happy to find that this authentic Volkswagen was still available. We picked it up at a gas stop in Faro close to the airport. As they are older cars they are not super easy to drive and have some specifics to know how to handle, but this was expected and not a problem at all. The van was clean, very well worked up and the bed was comfortable.
After two great days our first van broke down right on the middle on the street in Aljezur and wouldn't move anymore. There were people by the street that were super friendly and helped us push the car to the next parking lot. We then talked to Joao, Yescapa and the Insurance company on the phone and everything was managed quite quickly. Since another van was available we were taken to Tavira by taxi and could pick up the new van right away. In the end we lost a day but things like this happen and Joao and Andre as well as Yescapa made us feel comfortable and relaxed.
In the beginnging we drove to Odeceixe and then down the west coast and back towards Faro. We had no problems with the police concerning wildcamping and stayed at a camping ground twice, which was really nice (especially to have a shower).
The contact with André and Joao was always super fast and friendly, beforehand and during our rental and they had some good recommendations. In summary we had a great time and would 100% recommend one of their vans!
Experiência a repetir!
Sempre super disponíveis para esclarecer qualquer dúvida durante toda a viagem, o João e André têm uma carrinha dos anos 80 a 4 velocidades, equipada de forma a transformá-la numa autocaravana cheia de estilo!
Gostamos muito da experiência, foi muito especial para nós.
Des vacances réussis grâce à cette petite merveille bien assez d espace pour 2 potes (2lits)et les planches de surf André est vraiment très sympa amicale et pas prise de tête le prix est très raisonnable l algavre se chargera du reste pour vous surprendre un seul regret ne pas être resté assez longtemps
André was a great negotiator, super friendly and always available. We met in Faro for the check-in where we signed the contract and we started our adventurous travel.
In advance André and João provided us with a video showing the details of the van wich was very helpfull. The van is a old modell kept clean and in good conditions.
We would highly recommend them and hire from them again! We wish you guys all the best!
André and João informed us very well before the trip and with the extra video we were prepaired perfectly for our holidays. The van is clean and includes everything what you need. We had no problems.
André is a really cool and likeable guy, he picked us up at the airport and brought us at the end to our hostel. They even organized a baby seat for our little one! Such a good service, we were very grateful.
Thank you so much guys. This van was a real home for this 2 weeks.
The information we received prior to the pick up was very detailed, including a video of Sal and all her functionalities - this was really helpful throughout the hire to refer back to. Andre kept us well informed on the lead up to collection - very quick to respond to questions. Handover went smoothly - Sofia and Joao answered all our queries and bid us farewell as we excitedly headed off to the west coast. Sal is a gorgeous, super well equipped van. Everything we could have asked for - towels, bedding, outdoor equipment and all kitchen utensils. Plenty of storage and very spacious. Comfy bed (we didn’t use top bunk so used it to store our bags). We had the most amazing holiday - definitely in our top 3! We absolutely loved our time in Sal - she certainly gets a lot of attention. A smooth handover at the end of our time - Andre met us near Faro Airport and then kindly drove us to the airport for our flight home. We will be hiring Sal again ....100% The freedom to roam from cove to cove, surfing, swimming in the the river, outside dining on the cliff edge, practising yoga and Qi Gong as the sun rises and gathering with other van folk to watch the most beautiful sunsets and share a beer. Portugal and the Portuguese touched our hearts. If you are considering hiring Sal, think no more.... the customer service you will receive is second to none and I promise you will fall in love worth Sal - we certainly did 🙏🏻
Not the fastest but the most beautiful Van at the Algave!
We really enjoyed our trip with this beautiful camper-van. Best experience ever!
Everything was working very well and the communication with Andre was really easy. The Van has everything you need for an unforgetable trip. Highly recommended.
What an experience! We took the camper around the Algarve for 3 days and couldn't have imagined a better way to see the area. João and André were very helpful leading up to the trip and always responded very quickly. Picking up the van was simple and everything was explained for us clearly. The van exceeded our expectations and we had no issues during our trip. Dropping off the van was again very simple. I would highly recommend hiring one of their campers. Thanks guys for such a memorable trip!
Joao and Andres are very nice and professional guys.
They helped us a lot during and also after the rental with very good advices that helped us a lot during our travel across Algarve and alentejo.
The van was in perfect conditions, we've never had any problem and we had such a Good experience on board.
Philipp and his girlfriend spent two weeks with SAL travelling South to North with the van. Communication was very easy! The van was delivered in perfect conditions, clean and ready to go to another adventures. We highly recommend them and hope to have you onboard soon! Thanks a lot guys for sympathy and for trusting on us!
Great hosts Gregory and Marie. Super friendly and enthusiastic. A late and early check-in that worked very well since there was understanding from both parts. We drop them after on the airport and got several suggestion from Gregory that were taken into account! 5 starts guys, highly recommended!
Natasha y su hija son invitadas impecables. A pesar de su poca experiencia en el campamento, la comunicación siempre fue fácil y pudimos brindarles el apoyo que necesitaban para recordar esta primera experiencia de vida en una autocaravana para siempre. Creo que lo logramos :) ¡Vuelve pronto!
Samuel and his sister were very respectfull and communication was very easy. Sol was delivered clean and at time :) They has a small accident with the van but situation was sorted and they could continue to enjoy their holidays! Hope to have you onboard soon guys! Cheers, André & João
What a good and contagious energy that of Romain and Nico. With a difficult check-in and check-out given time of arrival and return home, we were able to adapt to each other for the greater purpose of their holidays. Sal was spotless and the smiles on the discovery return of this fantastic country were evident :) Hope to see you soon, here or in Brittany! Always stay that way, happy and available to the World!
Roberto and his wife were fantastic! They were very keen to visit Algarve and Portugal and Sul was readdy to explore the coast and coutryside. Their smile and good vibes on the return showed to us that the objective was accomplished and build up their future memories! Thank you for taking care of the van as it was yours and hope to see you again!
Alexander and his girlfriend were just increadible! Very friedly and relax people that made the most of their time in Algarve, visiting beautiful beaches and surroundings. A trip rush to the airport to drop off, no time to check the van on the return, but everything was sparkle clean and ready to go on the roal again! Hope you enjoyed Sal!!
Great to meet Tânia and Adrien! Fantastic spirit even facing problems that are normal with older vans, and lack of knowledge with then, they always maintain calm and were able to communicate correctly to find the best solutions. Overall I think they enjoyed a lot there stay in Sol and hope to see them in Zurick. Best to you guys!
For us this was one of the hardest rentals to deliver. This because the previous rental did not went as expected, we had several issues to solve (complicated), and we had to contact Ollie and Charlotte and explain that we would might not be able to deliver the van. It was up to them to decide if they wanted to risk and wait until the last minute or to change their plans….Glad they believe in us and we were able to deliver SAL once again in perfect conditions. The rental was more a loan…we received the van in perfect conditions and many smiles. So happy we met this two new friends and I strongly advise them to any one! They say they will come back and we do hope to meet this beautiful and true couple very soon! Thanks and see you soon :)
Fantastic rental with Simon and Martha! Van delivered in perfect conditions, clean and at time! No problems and very good communication between both parts! Strongly advice them, thank you guys for the lamps that now give an extra vintage look to SUL :) Hope to see you soon!
Ci sono clienti e ci sono amici. Gabri ed Elena sono una di quelle persone con cui rimanere in contatto e la ragione per viaggiare e conoscere nuovi mondi.
