The River House has ample space for outdoor entertaining. A large deck winds itself around three quarters of the house.

All outside areas of The River House (Waterfront Deck, Sunset Terrace, Pool Deck) and The River Lodge can be used for your wedding or celebration when renting both locations.

Along the side, the calçada Sunset Terrace offers welcoming shade and is also an ideal spot for outdoor dining under the mature Carob trees with views of the Funcho Dam and river in the background.

The Pool Deck is situated at the back of the house and perfect for admiring the spectacular sunsets, whilst enjoying a well-deserved cocktail.

The large Waterfront Deck is also at the back of the house, a great place to relax on the outdoor sofas where you have a good view of the heron that spends hours wading in the soft mud picking up juicy bits to eat. During springtime the exotic hoopoe and Iberian azure-winged magpie birds can be seen as they flitter from tree to tree.

The outdoor cooking area, leading off the farmhouse kitchen, is a great place to fire up the BBQ (gas BBQ or charcoal burning Weber) or wood fired pizza oven. Pre-book a local chef to entertain you one evening with Portuguese fish and grilled specialties.
