Retiro no Rio is located in the valley of the Mondego. This unspoiled piece of nature is a true bird paradise where the kite and the hops show themselves regularly and the owl is heard at night. The dwarf wharf can also be spotted. In addition, it is also the habitat of foxes, boars, rabbits, squirrels, otters, fire salamanders and various lizard species. The river is mainly fished for carp and barbel. When the river is low (September-March), the mudflats and ruins appear, silent witnesses of a hamlet undermined by the arrival of the Barragem da Aguieira reservoir. From the Penedo Cabana (lookout point within walking distance) you have a spectacular view over the river.
The nearest village is Póvoa de Midões, half an hour walk or 5 minutes by car. Here you will find several cafes and a restaurant.
In Midões, a village with a rich and still tangible history, you will find a post office, butcher, bakery, restaurants and bars. Set against Tábua is Sevilha, traditionally a miller's village where grain from the area was milled. The beautiful (walking) route leads you along beautiful vistas to the Rio de Cavalos, where the old still working watermills can be admired.
The nearest supermarkets are in Tábua and Carregal do Sal, both 10 minutes by car from Retiro no Rio.
