The coast northwest of Lisbon offers numerous picturesque places such as Ericeira, Peniche and of course Sintra, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Sintra offers lush gardens as well as baroque palaces that seem to have been plucked from a fairy tale. After about a 45-minute drive we find a dream hotel in the middle of Portuguese nothingness.
Areias do Seixo is a magical place, a Portuguese seduction in the dunes and a five-minute walk to the beach. Here you will feel that originality, comfort and sophistication are in perfect harmony.

A place for romantic summers by the beach, beautiful conversations by campfires and ultimate relaxation.
