“Dream retreat venue”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I've just returned home from a weeks yoga retreat organised by the lovely Keri Lincoln.
The venue was spot on, lovely yoga studio that was cool and calm, when we got hot and opened the door you did your yoga practice with trees in sight which was lovely. The pool and sunbathing area was beautiful with utterly fantastic views, there were also other sun traps if you wanted somewhere quiet to pause.

The house is fantastic, airy and cosy all at the same time, the bedrooms vary, there are rather plush ones upstairs with ensuites, downstairs there are more basic ones (I call it basic but they are still lovely rooms, with very comfy beds, fantastic views, beautiful shutters... I could go on!) They have a shared bathroom but we managed OK with that.

As a yoga retreat venue I would highly recommend Latas, the vibe of the house is both positive and calming, the peace of the surrounding area, the opportunities for nearby trips, or simply a walk to the river or around the tiny village are an excellent add on to a perfect setting.

Rita and her family are absolutely delightful, so welcoming, Alex was helping this week too and she was fab too!

(Just wanted to add that I didn't book the stay at Latas, Keri did, but wanted to leave a review for them after our stay)

“Perfect house for a large group of friends”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

If you're looking for a beautifully-furnished, visually-stunning house in idyllic surroundings and a chance to sample the real Portugal then you won't find a better place than Latas Country House.
The house easily accommodates a large group of people - 15 of us with ages ranging from 10 to 50+ easily fitted in and the pool is large enough for everyone to enjoy. Poolside, there's even a cafe/bar with a stocked fridge full of drinks.
Even after a sumptuous fortnight stay, the house and extensive grounds still delighted with nooks and crannies for the children to explore and for the parents to siesta in.
Rita, the owner is always on hand with advice and tips. She organised a day out kayaking on the Mondego River which the children absolutely loved.
We all adored our stay.

“Fantastic house with a great pool in a beautiful part of Portugal”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Latas is a beautifully furnished, grand old house tucked away on the edge of a small Portuguese village, about 40 mins drive from Coimbra. You will need a car to get here, but the drive is very pleasant. This is a lovely area of Portugal - right on the border between the Dao and Bairrada wine regions, so lots of local wines to try.

The house sits alone on on the hill on big grounds, so great views and no neighbours to annoy! The pool area is right next to the house with a large swimming pool, lots of lounging areas and a nice big seated table area where you can eat after cooking on the built-in bbq. The owner, Rita, is friendly and helpful. She happily booked us local restaurants and a canoeing trip.

We had a fantastic week here. Can't recommend it enough.

“Beautiful & Scenic Retreat " My home in sunny Portugal "”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Just a perfect place to stay, stunning property in a peaceful and sleepy village high up in the hills. Spectacular views during the day and a real treat at night with amazing views of the night sky. The owner Rita, was extremely friendly and helpful, she made our stay even more pleasant. I highly recommend Olive Suites for a peaceful and romantic retreat, this little gem exceeded all our expectations.We will definitely be back for a longer stay!
