Industrial meets farmhouse chic meets "A Midsummer's Night Dream" at the eclectic, seductive Areias do Seixo. Less than an hour from Lisbon, surrounded by pine trees and the sea, this eco-hotel offers the perfect blend of style and substance. There is an intimate spa, house restaurant served by the hotel's own organic gardens, and rustic-bohemian guest rooms that include sleek private villas with their own plunge pools. But what gives this place the advantage is its attitude toward preserving the environment and supporting the local community. Along with typical recycling and low-impact programs, the hotel produces its own energy and an automated system adjusts energy use based on weather changes and occupancy rate.
