Where else to spend your holidays rather than in one of the most romantic hotels of Europe, nestled in the middle of thousand color vineyards in Portugal? The 19th century manor house and surrounds, located in Lamego in northern Portugal, is set on a UNESCO World Heritage site within the world’s oldest demarcated wine region and has been officially awarded a quality seal by the Portuguese Association of Historical Gardens. Known for its management philosophy, which revolves around sustainability and wellness, and its desire and ability to deliver a series of programs to protect precious local ecosystems, including a ‘community forest’ initiative and extensive permaculture and forest garden operations, Six Senses also protects 4.5 hectares forest park containing 3,500 botanical species and the return of healthy soil has led to a dramatic increase in biodiversity, from fungi, bee hive operations, hundreds of fruit trees, insects, bird life, wild boar and genets.
