Yurt Holiday Portugal

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Kids can sleep in the yurt on camp beds or in a bell tent alongside but pets cannot be accommodated

Fuel up on complimentary breakfast and then head out from the comfy yurts with their warm earth tones into the rich countryside

A locally sourced breakfast hamper, hand-made olive oil soaps and fantastic Caiparinhas are just a few of the things that make this place a great experience. In a lesser travelled area of Portugal, Hannah and Derrick (the cocktail mixer!) have created an incredible eco escape. They have designed their site to be super efficient in its usage of energy and water but, more importantly, to be a relaxing, fun place to stay. They have drawn up some local hiking maps and can point you in the direction of everything from museums to kayaking. They also have superb on-site meals, which you eat up at the house on the broad veranda with the other guests.

Chestnut Tree Yurt is on a raised wooden platform and has an antique feel with wooden floors, steamer trunks and a big iron bed. There are two armchairs, rugs and hangings that add a touch of Moroccan influence with warm earth tones. The bathroom is two minutes walk away and has a gas run shower and sink and compost toilet of the Swedish modern variety. 

Honeymoon packages - A honeymoon at Yurt Holiday Portugal is a magical thing, including anything from kayaking to candles. See the Activities tab for details 

Our guests say...

We had a fantastic stay in Chestnut Tree Yurt. Red and Eva were great hosts, and great cooks. We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity.



We had such a fabulous stay with Hannah, Derrick, Ella, Theo & animals. The yurt was absolutely beautiful and we miss sleeping in it so much! The location is breathtaking, particularly the starry nights! Breakfast was super, the picnic lunches in the hamper a delight and made us feel like school children again… anticipating what would be in them each day. Dinners were delicious, film night was great as were all the lovely chats. The wild swimming was wonderful and we spent each day exploring all the beautiful spots always amazed that we had them to ourselves. What Hannah and Derrick have created is truly inspirational and we wish them every success for the future! P.S. Thank you for helping us with the tyre!



"Yurt Holiday Portugal is an absolutely idyllic place to spend a few days. The site itself is lovely - you feel very tucked away in your private corner of the property. The owners, Hannah & Derrick, are also brilliant - they can't do enough to help. Then there's the location - this is proper rural Portugal. You pass through tiny villages to get to the site, and there are great outdoors activities to be enjoyed all around, from hiking and horse riding to kayaking and wild swimming. Just perfect."



"It was incredible. We were only there for 1 night as we were on a driving holiday and had places we had to get to each day to ensure we made our ferry home but I would have loved to stay for a week. As soon as we arrived I was completely relaxed. Hannah and Derek were so friendly and accommodating and the food they created for us was sublime. I spent most of my time lazing in the hammock with my book and a cold beer. It was paradise. I plan on returning in the non too distant future. Best part was the hammock and location. It was just totally perfect. Also loved the eco-friendly touches like the bathroom, cooler in the room, recycling bins. Really made us strip back to basics and enjoy time together. There really wasn't a worst thing. I cannot recommend this place enough. Hannah and Derek have created a little slice of heaven in Portugal."
