          Welcome to Casa Ribeira                   

"Destination reached"           







Casa Ribeira means Riverside House and is set on the edge of a small tranquil village where fresh bread is delivered every day. Situated on the banks of the river, that runs all year, we are in the green heart of Portugal, an ideal location for hiking and exploring nature. The forests and landscapes are an inspiration for painters and photographers.

Here we have created a small and personal place where the guests needs are our priority. You can choose to self cater or we can provide breakfasts, dinners and bbqs, all using fresh homegrown and local produce. Try pizzas from our traditional wood fired oven, a traditional Portuguese bbq or a classic three course dinner. Enjoy a cocktail next to the swimming pool or taste the wines that Portugal is famous for.

Surrounded by culture you can explore medieval castles, roman ruins, ancient churches and visit the nearby university city of Coimbra. For the young at heart we are 5 minutes from Portugal’s largest swimming pool complex with an artificial wave machine. And of course there are dozens of natural river beaches to enjoy for free, including our own.

We look forward to having you stay and please contact us, using the contact form, if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation.

See you soon
