As soon as you step into the sea-swept warmth of Areias Do Seixo, it is almost impossible to believe that you are only an hour from Lisbon. This stunning beachside property combines sophisticated architecture with rustic surroundings, striking a harmonious balance between the two. Time seems to stop at Areias Do Seixo, as you spend your days in the effortlessly easy rhythms dictated by the Atlantic tides and the breeze over the sand dunes. The property offers a warm embrace with charming details that are designed to immerse you into the natural environment.

The rooms of Areias De Seixo pair cutting-edge eco-technology with interiors that evoke an effortlessly hippy-chic atmosphere. The rustic interiors complete with sheepskin throws, suspended fireplaces, and warm lighting, are contrasted with the polished concrete bathrooms and exteriors of the hotel. This elegant and modern design is continued into the main common areas. The living and dining rooms are flooded with natural light from huge picture windows that provide uninterrupted views of the sea.

Outside, Areias De Seixo is equally carefully designed. The glittering infinity pool is flanked by day beds and sun loungers and overlooks the extensive gardens where fresh fruits and vegetables are grown for the hotel’s restaurants. For those hoping to get a little closer to nature, spend a day helping out in the kitchen garden, picking the very food that will later be on your plate, and in the evening wind down with a glass of local wine sitting around the flickering campfire. For those seeking a natural escape without compromising on sophistication or luxury, there is no better refuge than Areias Do Seixo.

Why we love it

Areias Do Seixo is a new generation of luxury, here you will not find beds facing enormous plasma screen televisions, instead this underdeveloped stretch of coast relies on its charming character and exceptional experiences to provide the luxury touch. From picking your own mussels, strolling along the sand dunes, and exploring the gardens, there is no better way to understand the very ethos of this experiential, eco-hotel.
