Our swimming pool is kept clear and chemical free using a sand filter, a UV filter and specifically chosen plants. The pool looks down from it's edge to the valley and the river Seia which runs along the lower boundary.
Our hot tub is heated by solar and by the wood-burner in the hobbit-house inspired sauna. Both the hot tub and the sauna fit 6 people comfortably. Guests love to take a dip in the nearby pool or ice bath cold plunge after being in either. Please note that as part of our sustainability the hot tub and sauna are only on from Thursday afternoons through Sunday afternoons.
Our open-air pavilion has stunning views of the river and pool. With punch bags and other equipment it's used for guided and non-guided workouts. The space is equally ideal for guided meditations, yoga, workshops, outdoor cinema nights and for bands when we host parties.
Above all the rest are the facilities that nature provides on-site and nearby. It is what has had us in awe of the property from the very beginning. Our private river beach is a nice shadey spot to read a book by the river, and yoga students' favorite place to practice in the heat of summer. Walk a bit up river, and you'll come upon the creek ideal for a wild swim under the canopy. At our doorstep are trails for hiking and biking. One hiking route leads to a cascading waterfall - an amazing swimming spot! The Mondego river is only about 20 meters from us and is a larger and slower river, great for using our Stand Up Paddle Boards. The sights, smells, and sounds of nature are what make the stay here at Cara Creek Eco Lodge so transquil and so special. We hope you enjoy as much as we do!
Lounge by the infinity pool; star gaze from the hot tub; break a sweat in the sauna; wild swim in the creek; read on the river beach; paddle board down the Mondego; workout in the open-air pavilion; hike to the waterfall... There's plenty to enjoy no matter what you're in the mood for!SEE MORE
