We went to stay in the Apple Tree yurt for 7 days with our almost one year old and our two year old. We had read lots of lovely reviews and we weren't disappointed. The yurts were great, fun decor and in a great location. Very rustic and untouched. The nearby river beaches are incredible. Secluded and beautiful. Flag number...

What a gem! We visited Yurt Holiday Portugal on reccommendation from well travelled friends. We were not disappointed! From the point of enquiring to when we left, we were well looked after. Hannah and Derrek worked tirelessly to ensure we had a fabulous time. The evening meals on the terrace were outstanding! We loved waking up to our breakfast hampers,...

We spent 7 nights at Yurt Holiday Portugal and could not have wished for a better holiday. The hosts, Derrick and Hannah, have created a beautiful oasis of environmentally-friendly calm up in the mountains. Our Yurt was nicely decorated and very comfortable. We were really surprised at how large our private space was, with plenty of room to relax in...

We enjoyed two nights gamping in Yurts. Fabulous hosts, scenery & location in the mountains, experience was memorable, the walks better then can explain. It should be a minimal stay of 5 nights! A highlight of ours while in Portugal

Our honeymoon week with Hannah & Derek was amazing from start to finish and to the point where we didnt want to leave! Even though it was the first time we had met, it was like we were staying with family and there was nothing that could have been done better or have been more friendlier. The setting of the...

We chose the yurt as we wanted something different to the normal, cooking on a beach and twiddling our thumbs. We were warmly welcomed and left to settle in. The yurt was very secluded and became the perfect den to reflect on our wedding day and simply do nothing. There was a fantastic couple staying in the other yurt so...

Arriving at the end of September for 7 nights we seemingly had the entire region to ourselves. The peace and tranquility of the Yurts and surrounding areas was truly something to behold and as it was a little colder than at the height of summer the local river swimming was totally devoid of locals and other tourists. Despite being a...

We were lucky enough to stay in the Apple Tree Yurt for 3 nights mid September. The location was easy to find - even without a Sat nav, thanks to Hannah and Derrick's instructions (and my partner's love for maps). The charmingly decorated yurt offered us a comfortable and peaceful retreat during our stay. During the 2 nights when we...

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
