Really great holiday - Hannah and Derrick are very lovely and the place is wonderful. Gorgeous location and the yurts are luxurious and cosy. Food/wine that Hannah and Derrick offer is amazing - very much recommend it. Have recommended this holiday to many friends - was perfect.

I am not usually inclined to write a review after a trip but Yurt Holiday Portugal merits special attention. Firstly, it is in such a beautiful place out in the Portuguese countryside, very peaceful, lots to explore. The accom is stylish, comfortable and well put together. The yurts are immaculate and manage to be both large and cozy at the...

My wife, son, and I spent a too-short 2 night stay at the yurts with Derrick and Hannah in summer 2014, while on a grand tour of Portugal. In decades of worldwide travel, I think this was my favorite place to stay ever. First, they are great cooks...it is best to order the dinners. Exceptional vegetarian cuisine, pitchers of wine,...

We couldn’t have stayed at a nicer place, with nicer people. Hannah and Derrick are fantastic B&B hosts. The place is located a little off the beaten path, so you’ll likely need to rent a car, but we really wanted to see different parts of Portugal - not only the major cities. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, and...

It was such a wonderful week spent in the peaceful and cosy Apple Tree Yurt. The hosts, Hannah and Derrick were utterly generous in all our questions about where the best local wild swimming spots were, where to eat, day trips to do and more. We were fed amazingly well with superb home cooking, and felt so relaxed chatting on...

We had a wonderful few days at Yurt Holiday Portugal. Derrick was a fantastic host, he looked after us so well. His cooking is amazing and he's a really interesting and helpful guy, we had some great chats! The tent was beautifully decorated and it was lovely to have a private, hot shower and clever compost loo that didn't smell!...

We spent 1 week here in the chestnut tree yurt on the honeymoon package. The drive from the airport was fine , lots of windy roads around the mountain with beautiful views. When we arrived very late due to airline delays we were given such a warm welcome by Derrick at 11pm at night .He showed us to our yurt...

This was our second visit to Hannah and Derrick's and it was just as brilliant as we remembered it to be. We took our 2 small children this time (2 and 4) and they LOVED it. The area is so beautiful and peaceful and even though the drive took just over 2.5 hours from the airport, it is well worth...

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
