Looking for that special place to stay while visiting Sintra, Portugal? There are lots of guesthouses, B&Bs and several hotels, in a variety of price ranges, to choose from. But there are only a few guesthouses in the beautiful Sintra Natural Park, aka Serra da Sintra, a circa 14,000 Hectare (circa 40,000 acre) protected landscape and UNESCO world heritage Site.
I´m going to rest on my own laurels today and praise Colina Flora. Colina Flora is a small, yet lovely, eco-guesthouse located in the heart of the Sintra hills. We´ve been busy renovating and upcycling this 1970´s house with terrific ocean views and a peaceful rural location. And it is only a few minutes from several great beaches, about a 15 minute drive to Cascais and Sintra and about 35 minute drive to Lisbon.
Colina Flora is a comfortable house with 4 individually designed guest-rooms, a swimming pool, several outdoor sitting/dining areas and great country-sea air. The “Eco” denotes the way its been renovated, furnished, run and cleaned. The food and gardens is organic. We hosts are vegetarian foodies who support local organic farmers, small food producers and things made in Portugal. Organic breakfast is included. Delicious vegetarian lunches and dinner are available upon request. Colina Flora is the perfect peaceful haven to return to after exploring the wonderful surrounding area.
Colina Flora is perfect for walking and biking vacations, surfing, beach combing, birdwatching, golf, tennis, horsebackriding, sightseeing, relaxing, music and art festivals, honeymoon destination and/or a mix of everything.
