Red and Eva really looked after us, with wonderful food at times convenient to us (we were always late for breakfast! they never grumbled once) The food was very very enjoyable everyday, the breakfast was vast, picnics exciting and dinners full of taste! The yurt...

We had an amazing honeymoon here. Red and Eva were very friendly and looked after us really well, with lots of tasty food, varied across the whole week. The valley was beautiful and peaceful, and the yurt very comfortable. They arranged for us to go mountain biking and kayaking, and also had maps for us to go walking around the...

Red and Eva, of Yurt Holiday Portugal, made our honeymoon stay at the yurts so incredible and memorable. We travelled from Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA and it was worth the trip. The food was spectacular and the conversation and company even better. Thanks to Red's directions, we found a beautiful, secluded swimming hole where we had a lovely picnic and swim....

Up in the mountains away from it all rewards the ears with the rarest of all sounds - silence. Nothing but the birds, animals, water and weather, a delight to the senses. And yet it's only a short drive to the local villages where you can find supermarkets and exceptionally good internet coverage should you need it (there is WiFi...

It's so hard to think of something new to say, as so many reviewers have captured the beautiful uniqueness of this place so eloquently before me, but I feel I owe it to our amazing hosts Eva and Red, to add our two pennies worth! We spent a fantastic week here in August, myself and my husband and our two...

We were greeted by 'Red' who instantly offered to carry my suitcase down the steep slope to our Yurt. I had difficulty negotiating the uneven steps so I was very grateful for his intervention. To welcome us Eva provided a banana cake and tea. My daughter has a gluten intolerance, with this in mind Eva had baked her a gluten...

We were looking for a spot to relax for a few days after a 10-day sightseeing trip through the coastal cities of Portugal (from Lisbon to Porto), and we were so happy to find Yurt Holiday Portugal. It was all that we had hoped it would be and more! We loved the location -- remote and secluded, which meant peace...

We stayed in the Chestnut Tree yurt for 3 hot days in July. Our kids (12 and 9) shared the bell tent which was spacious and cool, like the yurt. This was partly thanks to the shade of the trees, which also made it lovely to relax in the hammocks with a view down the valley listening to the babbling...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come and stay in our romantic Mongolian style yurts, nestled in the mountains of central Portugal, about one hour inland from the ancient university town of Coimbra. Olives, vines and fruit trees surround the yurt; our own spring provides the water; and energy is solar powered. Whether you’re looking for a lazy rural retreat, or an active holiday in the hills, there’s no better way to get back to nature without foregoing any creature comforts. ... more   less
