We, a family of 4, had a memorable stay in the Chestnut Tree Yurt. We enjoyed the large and very comfortable accomodation in the Yurt and the hospitality of our hosts -lovely meals cooked by Hannah and delightful conversations with Derrick who is widely travelled.
Our children, ages 12 and 15, loved the additional bell tent and the company of the Mc Donnell children.
A car is essential and there are many things to do in the surrounding areas, though just lazing around is an equally good option for the travel weary !
- 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
