Location

We’re located just an hour from Lisbon airport, in a tranquil location overlooking Areia Branca beach and beyond. It’s a peaceful place, much of the surrounding area is agricultural (we get amazing fresh veggies living here!) but you can find amenities nearby if needed. The beach is easy walking distance over the dunes pathway so you have the freedom to go exploring when the mood takes you.

Facilities

You’re welcome to use the whole of the house, communal gardens and pool (open May to Oct) during your stay. There is fast wifi available in the social areas but please note that it is switched off overnight to ensure the most restful sleep.

The guest room has a king-size bed, and ensuite shower-room. It has sweeping sea-views which can be enjoyed from the terrace, while the sound of the ocean invites you to let go and relax into just being rather than doing.

Explore the Silver Coast

If you feel like being more active during your retreat, there are plenty of experiences on offer:

  • Surfing: enjoy world-class surf spots all year round. There are many local surf schools that cater to all levels of experience, ready to get you up and riding some waves.

  • Kite-surfing: available year-round depending on weather conditions.
