It is now the middle of November and the flowers continue to be abundant. The Camillias are just bursting into blossom, the roses are glorious, and the annuals, long gone in northern climates, are vibrant.

We named our hilltop B&B Colina Flora – “Hill of Flowers” because of this area’s colorful 4-season splendor.  The weather is still balmy: in the high 60´s to low 70´s with only occasional rain. Perfect weather for hiking, mountain biking or strolling on the beach.

Our B&B has several bikes and an incredible bike rental facility is nearby, so we can arrange for you to be fully equipped for your biking holiday, complete with GPS system. We offer picnic lunches (always organic and vegetarian – though delicious carnivore meals are available upon request!); and we´ll even deliver the lunch baskets to your designated spot.  

Paulo Patrizio, garden designer, builder, massage therapist and soap maker has created a wonderful line of natural goat’s milk soap. For years he has been experimenting with traditional Portuguese soap recipes incorporating locally sourced ingredients. The result is a wonderful scent-free soap, which soothes and softens the skin. Goat milk soap is a great moisturizer, wonderful for sensitive skin, and gently exfoliates due to alpha hydroxy acids found in the milk. We especially love his Fairy soaps and the Celtic Crosses. Soaps are available in 10 designs from 2€ – 6€ and make great Christmas gifts. We ship anywhere.

Fairy Soap - 6 €

Heart Soap - 2 €
