Yurt Holiday Portugal

Hannah McDonnell contacted me about her Yurt Holiday business located in Portugal.

Come and stay in our romantic Mongolian style yurt, nestled in the mountains of central Portugal, about one hour inland from the ancient university town of Coimbra. Its self-contained and fully furnished, set in our smallholding of terraced land, which we manage organically. 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.

So if you are traveling in Europe and want to explore what it would be like to live in a yurt, spend a couple of nights at this great holiday location.

  • The yurt sleeps two with enough space to add two children’s beds if required alternatively we have a very spacious bell tent for hire which comfortably sleeps two, perfect for older children.
  • There’s plenty of space to hang your clothes, rugs on the floor and a chaise longue for relaxing.
  • A welcoming bottle of wine is on chill for you on your arrival and a selection of cooled drinks are always available in the yurt. Derek mixes a fantastic Caiparinha (a delicious Brazilian rum cocktail).
  • Outside the yurt is your own private bathroom, with hot shower, sink, and ecological loo.
  • The yurt has reading lights and a power point sufficient for a laptop.
  • The yurt stands on a wooden platform beside a chestnut tree, providing all-day shade (hammocks and loungers provided).
  • We live just a few minutes walk away if you need us for anything. We have lived in Portugal since 2001 and enjoy our hectare of terraced land with our two children, Theo 9 and Ella 6, the chickens, the dog and the cat.
  • A substantial continental breakfast is included, using local produce wherever possible. It’s served next to your yurt under a chestnut tree. Packed lunches and home-cooked evening meals are also available, with advance notice.
