The main house has 6 rental units with individual bathrooms. These units range from a large suite with more than 70 m² to a cozy chamber with 13 m². One striking feature is the design of the bathrooms, which is unique for every unit. One may or may not like it at first - but after a while you realize the originality that goes back to a former lady of the house. Unfortunately most guests will not be able to see all bathrooms and thus appreciate the diversity. We for one have decided to name some of the rooms after gemstones that mirror the color of the bathroom tiles: Jade, Emerald, Amber and Ruby. One had to be named Templarios, or course, and the Tower chamber was too obvious to avoid.

The Tower

The tower is not only the visible landmark of Retiro dos Cavaleiros, but it also holds a cozy chamber on the first floor and a platform with a spectacular view on the top. If the tower is rented as a whole, the bottom floor will become the living room and the platform will be part of the private area. The chamber holds a large canopy bed and has windows overseeing the inner court and the village. There is a small bathroom with a shower.
