Need a place to relax? Really relax…leaving the city behind and learning to appreciate the world around you?  We´ve got the place.  Less than an hour north of Lisbon is an amazing new experience, the Areias do Seixo (Sands of Pebble) Charme Hotel.  It is nestled behind the sand dunes of the ocean, among a setting of pine trees.  This is where you “feel the originality, comfort and sophistication in a perfect fusion with the land.”



There are only ten rooms to choose from.  Each one is unique in its design and décor.  However, each room has a view of  the ocean dunes, a fireplace and a wooden deck.  Some rooms have a private exterior patio and Jacuzzi.

And should your beautiful room still not provide the peace you need, a full spa is available equipped with sauna, Turkish bath, two massage rooms, a Vichy shower room, a relaxation room, and an outdoor heated pool.   Select from a menu of treatments.  Yet, this spa favors a massage technique more in tune with the Indian Ayurvedic (Science of Life) tradition.

Another interesting feature of the hotel is their range of “experiences” scheduled throughout the year.  You can go to the sea and fish for clams and mussels with a cane.  You can work in the garden to collect herbs for dinner.  Or, participate in a morning workshop on sustainability, ending in planting a tree on the premises!
