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.
Contemporary design and natural elements co-exist in a beautiful new four-star eco-resort near Évora in the Alentejo. eCork Suites and Spa sits on the rolling countryside among Holm oak and Centennial olive trees. Only an hour away from Lisbon, this quiet retreat is great for weekend get-aways or extended vacations.
Fresh air, stunning views, natural surroundings and good physical exercise. Ahhh, getting outside. It’s something we always think about doing, but often don’t take the initiative. The Algarve of Portugal offers numerous trails, with different views, variety of terrain and spiritual-like experiences.
Who would think that one of Portugal’s most pristine beaches would be just at the foot of one of the country’s busiest communities? Ilha Deserta (Deserted Island), in the Algarve near the city of Faro, is a welcome respite from other crowded, popular beaches across the region. And, the adventure to reach it enhances the uniqueness of this must-visit beach.
