Description of North Portugal eco lodge accommodation
Forget the golf courses and beach resorts. Give the Algarve the elbow. Portugal is much more than a summer vacation hotspot and theres no finer way to...
Is there anything more sublime than sitting outside on a balmy night, sipping a cold glass of something local with nothing around you except the sound...
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis is the land of wolves and wild horses. We are involved in the conservation of this 2 species for the last two decades. We produced a television documentary of 52 minutes where we stressed the wolf problems and why we should preserve it. We continue to have in the name of all our tours and in all our marketing the name of the wolf and wild horses for the local people to understand that our visitors came because of this species and because of our well-conserved nature. We encourage our guests to observe the wild life and write in our wildlife log. The local breed of horses comes from prι-historical times and they are in extinction. To help we need to find a good use for them and with it raise their monetary value. If we achieve it the local farmers will breed them and the numbers of the species will rise to. We promote this breed all over the world speaking about them and having them in our stables for the riders discover how wonderful they are. We create a special week tour that the guests can come with us to the mountain and observe the wild behaviors of the horses.
PeopleIn all our meals we chose the local products like the honey, vegetables, jam, and ham. We always advise the guests the best restaurants that use meat from the local free animals like the cows that graze free in the mountain. In all our tours we include visits to local producers. In our garden, we created a big pond that receives the rain water to water our vegetable garden that the guests can use too. In all the rebuilding process of our houses, we used the local materials as much as we could and we make a very big effort to have our houses well isolated and with that, we save energy in our heating system. The main heater of the house works on wood that comes from the cleaning of the fields avoiding fire in the forest and spending diesel that is usually the local main way to heat the houses. The soap in the bathrooms is produced by us without the normal chemicals of the industrial soap.
