We chose Colina Flora for our honeymoon and it was absolutely the perfect choice. Hidden away half way up a mountain it was peaceful and tranquil yet only 10 minutes walk from a village with all the amenities you need. Aasta and James are perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them, from advice on walks, vegan restaurants and... More

My son & I spent several days at Quinta Colina Flora on the recommendation of a friend. It is truly a heavenly spot. It is nestled amidst beautiful countryside and numerous historical sites are accessible by bus or foot (for the adventurous). Our hosts, Aasta & James, we're so helpful and gracious. Each morning a delicious, organic breakfast was served.... More

First of all thank you to Aasta and James for their hopsitality. Breakfast is fabulous and the location particularly convenient to organise walks around the area. We walked to Monserrate and to very scenic beaches. We also enjoyed yoga in the vicinity of the Quinta! Great place to discover this very surprising part of Portugal.

I chose Colina Flora on the basis of its environmental credentials, but came away with a hundred more reasons to go there - and go back...

This may be the easiest review I have ever written. My wife and I have traveled all over Europe and this was, hands down, the best lodging experience we've ever had.

We stayed for six nights having just spent 3 nights in Lisbon. We booked it for the wonderful location and also based on the ethos behind it and we weren't disappointed.

Excellent location in the UNESCO Sintra hills for walking, cycling or touring this beautiful rural wooded landscape and small beach coves. Our room was large, positioned on the top floor surrounded by windows with 360 degree views including the Atlantic about 2 kms away. It contained a Kingsize comfortable bed.

This was a perfect way to start our vacation on the mainland of Portugal. We stayed in the well appointed Marigold room. It was very quiet and comfortable.
