An overwhelming hideaway in eco-chic design
The ultimate example of eco-chic design, Areias do Seixo is a boutique resort as stunningly imaginative as it is environmentally responsible. Perching on sand dunes above the Atlantic Ocean, the glass and concrete cube structure is warm on the inside and dramatic on the outside.
Fabulously original rooms and suites are a heady mix of texture and colour – pebbles, driftwood, rich fabrics and ethnic details enhance four poster beds, fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs and open air showers.
Intimately connected to its environment, the resort is powered by renewable energies and guests are offered various green experiences: touring the organic garden and picking fresh herbs and vegetables for the kitchen, foraging for mussels at the beach, and learning about composting.
Afternoons are ideal for relaxing beside the deep green pool, or delving into the sanctuary of the intimate spa, before gathering around the bonfire for folk music and star gazing.
