An impromptu visit to Almaa had us wishing for more time in Portugal. We didn't get to stay here, just had a picnic lunch with our guide Sofia and Jerome was so hsopitable in the drenching rain.showed us through. We all had lunch together in the huge farmhouse style kitchen, you know the sort, everyone wants to sit around and chat....How we wanted to stay!! Beautiful decor, no excess just perfect. Extremely clean and gorgeous grounds/gardens.
If you get a chance is worth a visit. You won't be disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Almáa Sintra Hostel is a retreat center and an Eco Hostel located in the heart of the Sintra Mountain Range which cultural landscape is classified by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Our house is sited in a property considered the oldest in Sintra, dated back to the 12st century, with 3,5 ha of luxurious gardens. We offer private and shared rooms in a heavenly environment. The Hostel was named Almáa, which means "The Water" in Arabic, due to the influence of the moors in this region and the fantastic natural spring water that supplies the house, and waters the gardens. "Alma" also means soul in some Latin languages. Our beliefs in sustainability and in helping one another, made us manufacture our furniture with recycled materials done by local artists with the help of third sector entities (charities, voluntary organizations and social enterprises) that are also our main suppliers. ... more less
