Waterfront B&B: privacy, nature and wildlife in the centre of Portugal.

Situated between Coimbra and the Serra da Estrela mountains, between Lisbon and Porto, lies Retiro no Rio, a beautiful estate measuring almost 10 hectares, of which approximately one kilometre stretches out on the left shore of the Rio Mondego. Literary translated, Retiro no Rio means a place to relax (retreat) at the river, a name that suits this estate perfectly.
To ensure the tranquility of our guests there is an age limit of 16 years.

Het is een fantastisch verblijf, mooie natuur, prachtige ligging, mooie appartementen en super ligging!!

Daarnaast zijn de eigenaren ,Elena en Ruurd , fantasisch stel die je helemaal in de watten legt en altijd voor je zal zijn!

We hebben erg genoten!

We waren er voor de tweede keer en weer was het een top ervaring

Je kunt er prachtig wandelen, zwemmen, kanovaren en lekker met de auto er opuit in de weelderige omgeving!

Wij raden dit ten zeerste aan

By Yvonne

Kleinschalige gemoedelijke accommodatie met een prachtige ligging aan de rivier en een mooi aangelegde tuin.

Goede uitvalsbasis voor natuurgebied San Estrella, eigenaren hebben goede informatie m.b.t. activiteiten (fietstocht 50 km oude spoorlijn Viseu) en mooie auto route uitgezet. Prima gevarieerd verzorgd ontbijt. Heerlijk zwembad! Relaxte sfeer.

By Ton

Een fantastisch mooie en mooi gelegen accommodatie. Ideaal om van de vakantie te genieten. Ik heb een boze review gelezen die ik totaal niet begrijp. Ruurd en Elena zijn vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Een zeer mooi zwembad met zelfs koud biertje. Hele leuke tips en mooie tochten te maken. Ga zeker ook een keer eten bij Cambriz. Maar het eten van Ruurd en Elena is ook erg lekker. We hebben een gezellige Portugese avond gehad
