This place is located in a prime spot overlooking the Mondego River and was a worthwhile find! The terrace provided 180 degree views of the calm and quiet river which can be enjoyed each morning during a generous breakfast. We had the advantage of staying while being the only guests and we truly enjoyed the run of the place, indulging in a pool day and renting a canoe. It was a nice and relaxing stay. Thank you for a wonderful dinner recommendation in Tabua. We had the best grilled fish yet on our trip. For travelers to Retiro no Rio, there is a charge for some of the things listed, such as using the canoes/kayaks and the washing machine. The room we stayed in was a small apartment setting that sits on the ground level, so if you stay here, you will hear the cats, people walking by and you do not get the view of the river. Due to septic concerns, used toilet paper cannot be flushed so you must use the receptacle. It can be tricky to find and having (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) directions that say "turn on unnamed road" can be nerve-wracking, but it really was not too hard to find. Overall, we loved the view from the terrace, the warmish saltwater pool, our short excursion on the river and the substantial breakfast!

Quite, nice, charming in the middle of the nature where only the songs of the birds and the jumps of the fishes can wake you up. A place to read and to meditate, where the time has no value. A pity, I could not make it to the diner, but I promise that I ll attend the next BBQ if Elena and Ruurd ( the lucky owners :-) ) organized one the next time that I ll go back to their place

It was a great experience, the place was incredible, too much nature: cats, trees, river, dog... Ruined and Elena are very nice persons. It's a little bit far from Serra da Estrella like 1 hour by car, but worth it. :)

We spent two nights at Retiro no Rio and we loved it. Actually two days were not enough, we should have stayed longer. The location is beautiful, the rooms were nice and clean and Ruurd and Elena made us feel very welcome. They prepared us some great meals with fruits and vegetables from their own garden. It's a perfect place to relax, with plenty of opportunities for great day trips.

Elena and Ruuard were excellent hosts who made me feel welcome from the first moment I arrived. The room that I had booked was very comfortable and clean. The pool and river were loads of entertainment as I was able to take my own private times or share time with other guests. The breakfasts were enjoyable and filled with produce they harvested from their own property. I would recommend their place to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous setting with an abundance of outdoor activities.
