NOURISHED BY NATURE

Welcome

Ashley and Rory, owners of Cara Creek Eco lodge sit by the pool

Welcome to this majestic valley where two rivers meet. We are humbled to call it home, and have built it for lovely people like you to retreat to nature.

Ashley & Rory

Immersed
in Nature

Lounge by the natural infinity pool; star gaze from the hot tub; break a sweat in the sauna; sing around the fire pit; rub on locally sourced clay to detoxify your skin before rinsing in the river; read a book on our private beach; explore the Mondego river by stand up paddle board; try the rock jump or a leisurely swim in the creek; practice yoga in the cozy indoor shala or on the panoramic outdoor shala; hike to the nearby waterfall; visit the neolithic dolmen site; treat yourself to a holistic therapy of your choice...

There are so many ways to enjoy Cara Creek Eco Lodge...

Relax

Our swimming pool is chemical-free and kept clean with a sand filter, UV filter, and lush plants. Swim up to it's infinity edge to peak down to the valley and the River Seia which runs along the lower boundary of the property.

The Eco Lodge

It is our pleasure to welcome you to our sustainably built and run retreat center. Ideal for nature lovers and animal lovers alike! This riverfront land has made a lasting impression on us and those who visit since 2017. We have worked to complement the land's beauty by building from solely natural materials and maintaining a low carbon footprint.
