“We loved everything! The space is an ode to nature.  Everything is respectful, ecological and peaceful. The breakfast was an enormous surprise.”

Teresa, Portugal.

The wonderful thing about staying under canvas at Quinta da Lontra is that you get the best of both worlds – the excitement of sleeping out in the open & being close to nature whilst comfortable in your own beautifully furnished space.

There is a fully-equipped kitchen & dining area, as well as shared ecological toilet & shower facilities for use by those sleeping under canvas.


We have 2 yurts, each situated on their own private terraces in shaded woodland, both within 50 metres of the river. They are furnished throughout & contain antique double beds, clothes rails, rugs & small log burners for the chillier nights.

On request we can also provide a beautiful bell tent for children which can be sited next to the yurt, (or not – depending how far away you want them!)

Both yurts have solar reading lights for night time & a small solar system in the Eatery provides power for recharging small electrical items such as laptops & mobile phones.


Our bell tents offer the perfect alternative to the hassle of having to bring all of your camping gear with you.

Light, spacious & airy, we offer 2 person bell tents for hire on a weekly basis. All come with low double or single beds & are furnished with sheepskins, carpets and furniture.

Sited on shady terraces close to the river, you´re never too far away for a late night dip under the stars.

What better way to enjoy a camping holiday without any of the hassle?
