A design thermal spa hotel in the form of eco-houses and tree-houses scattered around a centuries-old park.

Pedras Salgadas Spa & Nature Park is a beautiful blend of modernity – striking, geometric Eco Houses and Treehouses nestled amongst the surrounding parkland, in north Portugal.

The outdoor decks, windows and skylights frame the living picture of the surrounding ancient cedars and pines. Pitched roofs and slate outer tiles hint towards local construction.

Explore beyond the minimalist sustainable architecture and you will find quirkier Art Nouveau buildings dating from 1910 dotted around. Pedras Salgadas (“Salted Stones”) refers to the supply of the mineral-rich Pedras sparkling water, a draw for Portuguese royalty and locals alike. We can vouch for its restorative powers!

Awesomeness

If you have ever had treehouse or cabin-in-the-wood fantasies, this is the place for you.

A beautiful Spa designed by Pritzker winner, Álvaro Siza.

Only 14 eco-houses and 2 tree-houses so it always feels peaceful.

Each eco-house has its own balcony and fully equipped kitchen.

Complimentary bikes with great trails to ride.

Bear in mind

The outdoor swimming pool is only open from June to September.

At night it can be a bit dark to walk around. A lantern is handy.

The town is very quiet and there is very little within walking distance.

Vegetarians might struggle to find decent options at the local restaurants but the houses have everything you need to prepare your own meals or the hotel can deliver meals to you.

Local Action

This is a spa town so our suggestion is to relax, appreciate the nature and spend some time at the beautiful spa.

If you feel the need to let your inner tarzan out, hit the bikes, treetop adventure course and get muddy.

For some hearty and delicious traditional food head to Quinta dos Carvalhos (11km) and Taska Quim Barbeiro (12km).

The hotel organises various tours including trips to the historical towns of Chaves (23km) and Guimarães (85km) or if you are willing to go even further Pedras Salgadas can arrange you a bespoke itinerary to Alto Douro Wine Region – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Car Rentals
We don’t own a car which means we hire a car for our JO&SO trips. We tend to use Europcar, as we like their cars, transparent fees and the service we receive. We always go for full insurance. It is more expensive, but we once had a flat tire and we were very happy to be fully covered.
