Why we've chosen Colina Flora

Colina Flora is a small, comfortable, "green" country guesthouse peacefully located in the rural hills of the amazing Sintra Natural Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site & Cultural Landscape - with incredible "dramatic" natural scenery - a serene oasis (off the beaten track) and tranquil retreat offering ocean views, situated only 3+ km to beautiful beaches and just 45 minutes by car from Lisbon. Colina Flora has 5 lovely rooms with ocean views, clean sea/mountain air and tested/filtered deep well water. It is a walker's, cyclist's and nature lover's paradise and a refuge for Slow Travelers. For those wishing to holiday without renting a car the local bus stop is just a 5 minute walk and leaves hourly throughout the day.

How does Colina Flora minimise its impact on the environment and contribute to a sense of place?

To reduce its draw on energy, all new appliances are rated A or A++. They also intend on installing solar panels. They have their own well water and a grey water system for water from kitchen sink and washing machine. They have an extensive recycling programme and bulk dispensers are used for soap and shampoo. To minimise water consumption, flow restrictors have been installed for toilets and shower heads. Only eco friendly cleaning products are used and grey water is used for sinks, showers and washing machine.

Locally sourced and organic food is used as much as possible, the owners belong to the local organic foods cooperative, the property gardens are organic and they purchase from small food producers as much as possible. To encourage arrival by public transport, they offer shuttle service and a great bus system is 5 minute walk from the house.  The owners provide information on a wide range of car free vacations. They are active members of the Slow Food Movement and in the low season they offer workshops on cooking with raw foods, micro greens and yoga.
