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, is situated in the centre of Portugal.

Literary translated, Retiro no Rio means a place to relax (retreat) at the river, a name that suits this estate perfectly.

There is a large saltwater swimming pool and a private river beach, a covered bbq area and various shady and sunny terraces.

Canoes, mountainbikes, pedalo's, ATB's and fishing rods are at your disposal. Once a week we organize a boat trip on the river to some hidden beaches. There is an infra-red sauna and a masseuse at the property. In the Cantina you will find touristic information, maps, hiking tours, games and books which you can borrow. We can arrange various activities for you such as 4x4 tours, horse riding, mountain climbing etc.
