Wow. We have just returned from our honeymoon - a week in this magical yurt in the mountains. We both have nothing but fabulous things to say. Anyone who thinks that 'camping' cannot be romantic needs to read on... We hired a car and drove from Lisbon airport (approximately a 2 hour 40 minute drive - along stunning mountain roads).... More

I'm not normally moved to write reviews, but I just had to about this place as everything about our stay was just so perfect! (I'm not one for brevity either, soz). The journey there was easy and an experience in and of itself - lots of windy roads through mountain passes, but the directions were great and the Yurts were... More

We have just returned from a week staying at Yurt Holiday Portugal, and what a fantastic time we had. Travelling with 2 young children is never easy, but Derek and Hannah were more than accommodating in ensuring our stay was as relaxing as can be! The location is somewhat off the beaten track, but the site is set in beautiful... More

Getting to the Yurt is a bit of an experience! Battling the windy, hilly roads with no guard rails along with the local drivers. However, once you arrive it’s one of the most relaxing places you’re likely to encounter. The yurt is beautifully furnished (I know right, a beautifully furnished tent!), but it is and should really be experienced. Derek... More

The welcome we recieved when we arrived was really enthusiastic and friendly. Derrick showed us around the lovely accommodation, asked when we wanted dinner and gave us recommendations on walks and visits to local towns and cities. We loved the location as we were looking for somewhere quiet to stay for a few nights, and the mountains in the area... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and had such an amazing few days that we immediately booked again to stay next year with our two small children. The yurt was very comfortable and we loved the fact that we could look out at the stars every night whilst led in bed. Hannah and Derrick were excellent hosts and made us... More

We stayed a week for our honeymoon and felt completely at home from the start, in the care of such a warm, vibrant and engaging family. Staying towards the end of the season meant that we had stunning wild swimming spots all to ourselves. Even in 38 degree heat the water was a little chilly but nothing a couple of... More

I had stayed in a teepee in Washington State a few years ago and enjoyed the experience so much I am always looking for different experiences. The Yurt was definately that, not all that different from the teepee really but just the fact that it is in the middle of Portugal surrounded by quiet nature and beautiful scenery was fantastic....

This was the second leg of our honeymoon having spent the first 10 days in a farmhouse boutique hotel in the south. Any reservations we had about the yurt not being far enough off the grid were taken away with each twist and turn we took through the beautiful hills. Apple tree yurt in which we stayed is beautifully decorated... More

Excellent destination for out Honeymoon, We chose it over more stereotypical exotic destinations because we thought it would be more romantic and special, and it certainly was. Hannah and Derek were perfect hosts, making delightful meals every day. Certainly better to go Full Board as the food is great and it makes day trips out so much easier (they provide... More

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
