We can only echo what the previous reviews have said - this is a great find. After a very impersonal 2 night stay in a chain hotel in busy Lisbon, Colina Flora was the exact opposite. The hosts are super friendly and knowledgeable and really made our stay unique. James gave us some great recommendations for places to visit and eat which were tailored perfectly to our needs. The place itself is beautiful, we had our 1 year old daughter with us so had the room with the terrace and fire so could put her to bed and still stay up ourselves. Would thoroughly recommend to all types of traveller, it is great vaule for money too.
