Lisbon 4 star hotel, Portugal: the story of this holiday company
The hotel building was purchased in 2006 .The original building dated from the end of the 18th century and its facade is an example of Baroque and civil Pombal architecture.
The hotel seeks to offer its clients a different experience in an ecologically sustainable hotel. We, therefore, adopt a policy of responsibility including sustainability as one of our core values, applied to all aspects of our business ranging from the use of environmentally friendly materials, paperless systems and even our gastronomic concept, amongst others.
We believe that reduction is the only way to minimize the environmental impact of our business and really make a difference. This is why all our policies and values are geared to this end.
If, like us, you believe that everything that surrounds us is a source of inspiration, you will find another indication of our commitment to preserve harmony and equilibrium between man and the environment in the implementation of the millenary principles of Feng Shui.
