A very relaxing holiday in the countryside of Portugal. The hosts, Derek and Hannah, are extremely friendly and very helpful. The optional dinner is great value; it is delicious (and certainly a nice change from plain Portuguese food) and comes with a good amount of wine :D

Lots to do in the area from walks, swimming and kayaking or just relax in the sunshine.

Overall, a great short trip away (we were in portugal for four days).

We were looking for a special honeymoon experience and wanted to be away from the usual 'honeymooner' holidays in your typical resorts. Upon arrival and throughout the week, we were made to feel very welcome in the luxirious and cosy yurt. We were serve three delicious meals every day and Derrick and Hannah helped us to stay entertained on the rainier days, when it was too wet to carry on exploring the wonderful surrounding countryside.

Absolutely fantastic. We wanted relaxation away from the hussle and bussle of London and we got it. Great accomodation, brilliant food. Derek and Hannah make the perfect hosts.

A honeymoon like no other, we arrived as guests and were immediately treated as returning friends. Derek and Hannah are professional, friendly, and perfect hosts delivering quality food everyday to be enjoyed right outside your yurt as the sun slowly sets. We have been given memories of a honeymoon that we hold very fondly in our hearts and will always look back on a perfect honeymoon.

The surrounding area is a treasure trove of days out, with the national forest, river swimming, and kayaking on the mondego river. And surrounded by villages that seem that time forgot!

Could not recommend this more, and we only hope we can make a return trip in the near future.

Hannah and Derek have created an idyllic experience.
The yurts are wonderful, and they have really paid attention to every detail.
Their food is absolutely delicious and their warmth as hosts makes staying an absolute pleasure.
The area is so beautiful and the starry sky at night is so romantic.
We loved every minute of our stay in this beautiful place.

What a trip!!!

Beauty, Peace and comfort beyond our dreams.

Derek and Hannah are the most wonderful hosts and also fellow SW Londoners.

I am already persuading my family to book next year. The perfect holiday for myself and David.

Thank you.

When you book anything new and especially on the internet you can't help feeling nervous about what you are going to find. Any anxieties were swiftly set aside. The Yurt was really comfortable and decked out in very tasteful fabrics and furnishings. Derek and Hannah are both excellent cooks. Derek made our 11 year old son a fantastic chocolate cake and Hannah always came up with very well judged meals for all the family and we could tell that if we had been on our own without the kids she would have come up with some really interesting food. I really enjoyed chatting with Derek and by the time we left I felt we had covered an amazing variety of topics. Theo and Ella are really lovely kids and a real positive testament to the lifestyle which they have been brought up in. All in all a really great place to chill out and relax
