Cara Creek Eco Lodge

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the small bit of paradise where we live, build, create and host with respect for nature. Our intention is to blend in with the natural beauty of the valley which we call home.

Nestled in the foothills of the Serra da Estrela Mountain Range in Central Portugal, we're situated directly on the Seia River where it meets the Mondego River. Maintaining a minimal carbon footprint, we are completely off-grid, using solar for electricity and springs on the land for our water source.

Nature provides the most impressive facilities here. The creek of the Seia River at the bottom of our land has a rock jump and an opportunity to venture up river to an old water mill and water fall. There is a private river beach to lounge under a tree with a book, walking trails at our door-step, and paddle boards available to explore the River Mondego.

To complement the natural facilities, we have a natural swimming pool which is kept clear and chemical-free with plant filtration and a UV and sand filter. On evenings you can star gaze from our wood fired hot tub and enjoy our hobit house inspired sauna.

With Out of the Norm Tours based on-site mountain bikes are available for rent or even better, sign up for the very popular Dolmen Mystery Tour.

We host a variety of workshops and events including scheduled Yoga on the River Beach, Paddle Board Yoga, Day Retreats, a Practicing Portuguese conversation group, and more! Click here to check out our Facebook Events Page for what's coming up!

From Spring of 2021 our various eco-accommodations will be ready for you to stay with us for an Eco Holiday, Retreat, or Course.

We welcome you to visit Cara Creek Eco Lodge and look forward to sharing it with you ~Ashley & Rory
