Areias do Seixo in Portugal

Industrial meets farmhouse chic meets A Midsummer's Night Dream ... while this eclecticism may sound chaotic, it is, in fact, soothingly seductive at 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, farm-fresh (and mostly organic) restaurant and gorgeously bohemian guest rooms that include 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 the usual recycling and low-impact programs, foundations at the hotel were made from the crushed ruins of an on-site aviary, and activities include opportunities to participate in the hotel's sustainability efforts.
