SUSTAINABLE PLACES INSPIRATION
Areias Do Seixo - A magical environment at one with nature
As you are well aware, Tourism and Fashion sectors are globally two of the largest industries, that make a significant and growing contribution to national economies in terms of jobs creation and revenue. It sounds exciting, doesn’t it? But we are all aware of how much it negatively affects the planet earth.
By Adushka's mission is to support and promote sustainability and cultural heritage in fashion without harming the planet at the same time being passionate about traveling and exploring different cultures, By Adushka gives support and promotes touristic places around the world that have managed to keep its authentic local charm and are investing in responsible tourism. One such place we've found just a couple of years ago is
Areias Do Seixo - Santa Cruz, Portugal
Areias Do Seixo is a unique accommodation that welcomes people from every corner of the world in a magical environment that is extremely comfortable and at the same time completely at one with nature. It’s a place where alla ingredients were chosen with originality, comfort, quality in mind, a place where you just want to be and live each moment, surrounded by sea, sand, dunes and pines.
AREIAS DO SEIXO MORE THAN A HOTEL ...
...A place of enchantment crafted from a range of resources that have been thoughtfully and painstakingly assembled to equal so much more than a simple sum of their parts...
...Awe-inspiring originality combined with sublime comfort...
...A place where time stands still.
A place to pause and savour every moment, cradled by sea, dunes, and pine trees.
Areias Do Seixo's uniqueness lies in the fact that we are talking about a low density hotel with a low level of global land use, which blends in with the natural surroundings - its concept is based on a sustainable policy that covers the unit’s design/construction phase and envisages extending this policy across the Hotel’s entire value chain.
The guests’ involvement in the Areias Do Seixo concept of sustainability is based on so-called “Emotional Tourism” which is then translated in “Sustained Tourism” - as the hotel uses sustainable tourism principles, based on energy efficiency, renewable energies and use of natural resources.
In fact, Areias Do Seixo carries out many projects closely linked to sustainability; the one that By Adushka likes best is the presence of a lovingly tended garden.
An organic garden made with much love: rich in fruit, vegetables, eggs, aromatic herbs, flowers and many other natural products which are used at the hotel - fibrous plants for bindings, leaves and stalks for decoration, essential oils for massages.
By Adushka loves it, because it’s an incredible way to bring Nature ever closer to guests.
