An oasis away from the city. 

The cozy Earthship is a design that was pioneered in New Mexico, as a passive solar, low energy example of sustainable construction. Sometimes known as the "Hobbit House", it has a very special and unique feel. The wooden deck overlooks the pool and sand beach, with a stunning view up into the Sintra mountains.

Reviews

 
I stayed in the charming earthship for three weeks in August.  Built into the slope, the cob and tyre walls, and quirky features such as bottle glass bricks and the green roof, give it an organic feel, like a hobbit house.  Very comfortable and completely self-contained, it has a simple but well-equipped kitchen and a private bathroom with shower.  Cool in the heat of the day yet cosy when the nights were fresh, it also has a lovely deck with superb views across the garden and up the valley, with the mini-beach and plant-lined natural swimming pool forming an oasis in this tranquil Eden.            -- Angela
 

“...a magical place...”

The land is a magical place owned by special people. I have seen its evolution and its spectacular what has been accomplished. Close by you can find lovely natural beaches, tasty restaurants and Sintra which is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. I have spent a lot of time with the hosts and I can say that they are the kindest most welcoming people. You will have a great time and great memories will be made.
