Right from the the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. The Yurt was lovely, in an idyllic location. Hannah and Derrick were always so helpful and eager to make our stay a complete pleasure.
All this was complimented by the fabulous dinners and breakfasts. Derrick's 'Moscow Mules' featuring his special Ginger Beer enjoyed on the terrace are a great way to wind down. Although we were not too lucky with the unseasonal weather we really could not have had a better time. The location, south of Porto and a little north of Coimbra, was ideal. Historic cities, coastline, beautiful mountain walks and wild swimming all in easy reach.
Thank you Hannah and Derrick for a lovely holiday which we will never forget.
- 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
