Responsible tourism: Lisbon wine and walking short break in Portugal

Environment

We are based locally in a very small riverside village called Foz de Odeleite and we are very aware of the environmental impact caused by tourism in the unspoiled wine region of Lisbon.

We only promote holidays for small groups of travellers who are environmentally conscious. We do not support day tours with large groups that invade a location for a few hours, because they do not contribute to a sustainable environment.

All our routes and trails are fully marked, giving you more time to appreciate the landscape, minimising the impact on unspoiled forests and fields. We try to use apps, electronic maps and guides as much as possible to avoid printing. We encourage recycling at the eco points in the villages and at our hotels.

We recommend the consumption of local meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, and encourage people to drink from the tap and refill their own bottles.

All our hotels use solar energy to reduce energy use based on fossil fuels. They have also adopted policies to minimize laundry (for towels and sheets) and show guests how to save energy.

Community

Our region is the poorest region part of the Algarve and the Alentejo. Most of our villages and towns are isolated and suffer from mass migration to large urban areas on the Western coast.The older generation stayed behind and depend on subsistence farming and welfare grants.

Responsible tourism that respects nature, local people and their culture is the only sustainable economic activity that will create business opportunities and youth employment. All our staff and those of our service providers in the Lisbon wine region are locals.

We take our guests on amazing experiences that are natural and very authentic. Allowing them to interact with local people who are very welcoming.
Our small, comfortable and charming hotels are owned by local families that will welcome you with open arms.

Try the local cafés and restaurants on our recommended list for delicious seafood and meat dishes, don't forget the unique cakes and desserts that are inspired by the local fruit. The taste and quality are amazing because everything is cooked fresh and sourced at local farms that use traditional organic farming techniques.
