Ericeira Camping, Casa das Aguarelas and Eco Soul Ericeira Guesthouse were again awarded the Green Key seal, which promotes sustainable tourism, at the National Delivery Ceremony held recently at the Olga Cadaval Cultural Center, in Sintra.

These three tourist units in Ericeira (in fact Eco Soul Ericeira Guesthouse is in Carvoeira) had already been awarded the same prize in 2019.

Green Key awarded Hotels, Local Accommodations, Rural Tourism, Restaurants and Campsites

In this edition, 153 Portuguese businesses were recognized, 28 less than in 2019, which placed our country in 7th place among the most awarded countries. The list is again led by the Netherlands, with 665 establishments in several categories: Hotels, Guest Houses, Rural Tourism, Restaurants and Campsites.

While Ericeira Camping won the Green Key in the Camping category, both Casa das Aguarelas and Eco Soul Ericeira Guesthouse were awarded in the category of Local Accommodation.

The “Green Key” program is an international award that promotes Sustainable Tourism in Portugal through the recognition of establishments that implement good environmental and social practices, value environmental management in their businesses and promote Environmental Education for Sustainability.
