CAMP OPERATOR

 Concept
How you put a concept into words that is best explained with a really big smile?
It is simply real happiness that the Star Pine Lodge wants to spread, not more and not less. And we know that everybody’s happiness comes from very different impulses. So we tried to find as many positive impulses as possible and joined them together. What came out is the Star Pine Lodge. A place where you can happily be yourself.

 Team
Our team consists of people from all over the world. Some came for the sun, some for the fun, most came because of the different activities we have here. most of who have come to spend a couple of months and ended up staying years because there was just no good reason to leave! The fun we have living and working in this gorgeous part of the world reflects in our friendly, welcoming and caring atmosphere.

 Environmentally friendly
Nowadays it’s getting really hard to say “we are eco friendly” as there are a million things we all should do to be really eco friendly. For us eco-friendly or sustainable is not a trend. We see it as a very important part of our lives and we hope you can join us on that journey during you stay. We are trying our best to make it happen but we know there is always room for trying harder.
Here are just some facts:
Our building material is all locally sourced. No long distance transport.
If we could not recycle furniture or wood we bought furniture from certified wood.
All our garbage will be separated and we try to make as little impact as possible.
As much as possible we will buy our ingredients locally, supporting local farmers and avoiding long distance transport. Like this you will find only the freshest and most tasty products on your plate.
If we can afford it we replace any energy consuming device with one that has a better efficiency. But we do not create more waste by replacing old for new just to look better.

Our main idea was to create a happy place where everyone can feel home. We think that an inspiring surrounding helps you to just be yourself and that is what the Star Pine Lodge is. Built by a team of travelers from all over the globe we managed to create a great mix of art and nature, color and forms, materials and styles which go side by side in harmony and make you feel welcome.

Natural Park
The Sintra-Cascais Natural Park has been protected since 1981. Its area is approximately 145 km²and includes the “Serra de Sintra“ a Mountain Range that extends all the way the the coast, and Cabo da Roca, continental Europe's westernmost point. It was known to the Ancient World as Lunae Mons (mountains of the Moon).
Its climate is temperate with many oceanic influences. It also has a unique vegetation. About nine hundred plant species are indigenous.
In it are located: the Moorish Castle, the Pena Palace, the Capuchin Convent, the Sintra National Palace, the Palace of Monserrate and the Quinta da Regaleira.
For us it is one of the most divine natural places on the Iberian Peninsula.

Sintra is known for its many 19th-century Romantic architectural monuments, which has resulted in its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although its heritage in buildings and nature is the most visible face of the historic individuality of Sintra, a whole literary heritage has made the area a legendary reference in Portuguese culture. In addition to the Sintra Mountains and Sintra-Cascais Nature Park, the parishes of the town of Sintra are dotted with royal retreats, estates, castles and other buildings, including the mediaeval Castelo dos Mouros, the Pena National Palace and the Sintra National Palace.

Cabo da Roca is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal
and continental Europe(and by definition the Eurasian land mass).
The western coast is a mixture of sand beaches and rocky cliff promontories: around Cabo da Roca, cliffs are more than 100 metres in height, and cut into crystalline rocks, composed of strongly folded and faulted sedimentary units.
Many migratory and marine birds roost temporarily along the cliffs and protected coves of the coastal area.

Cascais/Estoril
It is a cosmopolitan suburb of the Portuguese capital and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. The former fishing village gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family
in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Nowadays, it is a popular vacation spot for both Portuguese and foreign tourists. It is located on the Estoril Coast. It is not only one of the richest areas of Portugal but also one of the nicest and well preserved. The historical town and the old harbor are a perfect place to stroll along.

Lisbon
We will not write much about Lisbon as it is hyped enough. All we can say is that most of the nice things you read about Lisbon are true and after 15 years of living here we still have a smile on our face when we go for a visit.
