    What else ...

    *️️ We aim to promote social, economic and environmental development in an integrated and balanced manner through practical and innovative business models that place sustainability at the centre of its action.
    *️️ Experiencing life in the heart of a Natural Park surrounded by nature and stars, 20min away from the beach by car
    *️️ We are located in the center of Portugal with close by connections to south and north
    *️️ Unfortunately there is no direct public transportation arriving here, we are at the middle of the natural park so there is barely traffic and it's pure nature :) It is possible to reach Palmela or Setubal with public transport (bus & train) but that's not exactly our doorstep (~6km/7km distance)...this last leg you can do it with bike, walk or ask for a ride!
