 Where Nature & Comfort Perfectly Match

The former windmill yard of SALGADINHO nowadays is an exclusive country house complex with a relaxing atmosphere of  tranquility and privacy. It is surrounded by nature and offers a wide panorama view down to the Atlantic Ocean and over the Monchique hills. A modern ecological concept reconciles “nature & comfort”

The accommodations are built and decorated to ecological standard. Having applied the rules of passive climatization, not even in summer air conditionning is required. In the cool season modern central heating secures a pleasant room atmosphere.

CASA PAVÃO and CASA PEIXE have the traditional thick taipa (clay) walls. The studio MOINHO is inserted in old stone walls of the former windmill Salgadinho. All accommodations meet the demand for modern comfort, including reliable WiFi and TV by satellites. Yet, each one has its individual style and an interior decoration that pays attention to detail and makes it unique.

Each accommodation has really private terraces furnished with sunbeds and table. The private outdoor space of each accommodation benefits from the setting which is like a botanical garden with a large water surface that integrates the swimming pool.

The stepless gradual access and non-slippery floor tiles make the pool easily accessible also for small children, elderly and even on crutches or by wheelchair. On sunny days the water is slightly heated by the overflow from excess solar water heating.

The swimming pool sometimes rather looks like a lake, especially by rain or when it is windy. The sunrise over the hills, the sunset over the ocean and the moonlight reflect in the water surface, giving the pool a changing appearance in the course of a day - a truly special experience.

The outdoor atmosphere in SALGADINHO in general is characterized by the panorama view over a natural landscape with sunrise over the hills and sunset over the ocean. The star-twinkling night sky is a truly magnificient experience, especially for anyone who comes from a city. Particularly beautiful the views are from September on throughout the cooler months until March.

As many guests already stated - it is difficult to capture the true atmosphere of SALGADINHO in pictures. They may just give an idea, and certainly show more than words can tell.
