Eco practices

The products for the meals are mainly prepared with local products and the produce of our vegetable patch. We buy solar energy from the company and of course we separate the waste and use 'green' detergents. The water we use is from our borehole and we heat the house and apartments with wood collected from our natural forest (no plantation but the original oaks, pines, olive treas and fruittrees).


The main building consists of 2 apartments each with 2 bedrooms, 1 large studio with double bed and sofabed and 1 B&B apartment with twinbeds and sofabed, each accommodation has a private bathroom. All accommodations are located on the ground floor and most of them have river views.

On the first floor of the main building there is a reception/breakfast/dining area where we serve meals (also vegetarian or vegan) on request. If the weather is good the meals can be served on the terrace overlooking the river.

In a separate granite tiny house there is another b&b room and at the riverside orchard there are 2 cozy caravans. These accommodations share a sanitary unit with 3 showers and 3 toilets.

There is plenty of space to camp.

At Retiro no Rio there is a (workshop/meeting) area of 85m2 that can be closed off. Are you looking for a venue where to organise a (family)-party, a reunion or a retreat? We would be delighted to help you with, among other things, the catering and activities on the grounds and/or in the surrounding area.

In between the main building and the workshop area there is a large saltwater swimming pool.
