Just one hour north of Lisbon we discovered a magical place, Pure Villas Areias, a haven of tranquility in nature, full of pine trees, dunes, and the sea. The villas are part of a five-star hotel composed of 14 hotel rooms and six private villas including the townhouses. 

You truly can feel the comfort, originality and sophistication in a perfect synthesis with the land. Sitting by the campfire, enjoying truly organic delicacies, in the pristine Portuguese dunes, we found a true Pure treasure.

The hotel was designed by the architect Vasco Vieira and the decoration has the signature of Rosario Gabriel. The structure was developed considering the harmony of the surrounding nature. Materials such as regional stone, pebble, glass and wood dominate. Everywhere you can feel many different inspirations and environments, Morocco, India, African savannah, romantic spaces, some rustic, others more sophisticated.

This place is ecological using sustainable tourism principals of energetic efficiency concern, renewable energies and natural resources.

Children of all ages are welcome in the villas and townhouses, plus being so close to the dunes and beach makes the setting great fun for all. 

Note: The hotel and main pool is only open to children aged 10 years and over; the spa facilities are only open to guests aged 16+.


Pure Villas Areias represents three three-roomed Villa types, similar to each other but with slightly different styles, with two to three floors. These are the Green Townhouses (4), Villas Blue (2), Villa Greens (2) and Green Superior Villas (3) 

Breathtaking views from all eleven Villas frame the grounds of Areias and provide an unbelievable relaxing atmosphere while swimming in the private heated outdoor pool or having a barbecue on the patio. Besides pool and barbecue area, each villa features a bedroom for six guests with bathroom, a living room with fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a terrace, and a striking view of the ocean and the dunes.

Attention should be paid to the very specific architecture and several floors featured in the Villas, making them less suitable for Children and Guests with limited mobility. All villa types are without a pool fence, which also makes the Villas less suitable for children who cannot swim. However, Villa Blue's swimming pool is equipped with an automatic articulated floating cover. When closed, the water is completely covered, affording a safer environment for children.

Besides the natural surroundings, Areias also offers a wonderful organic gourmet restaurant and a Moroccan inspired world class Spa in the hotel area.

Discover the ecological flavors in the hotel restaurant, from fruits, vegetables and herbs hand-picked in the hotel garden (an activity that welcomes hotel guests), to fish and meat purchased from suppliers from the region on a menu that changes on a daily basis depending on what is available and fresh.

In the hotel Spa open daily from 10.00 to 20.00 and to 21.00 June to October, guests can make use of the sauna, Turkish bath, different treatment rooms, relaxation room and the outdoor pool. The main pool is only open to children aged 10 years. 

The Spa facilities are open to guests aged 16+.

If not the Spa, go for a walk along the dunes, engage in a Yoga class or the garden activities by for example collecting your own herbs and bring it back to the restaurant where these will be blended and infused to make a deliciously unique tea. You can also participate in rod fishing and mussel harvesting or enjoy a glass of wine in front of the bonfire with other hotel guests, or a shared dinner with friends and family in the shelter of pines or a distant place by the lake organized by the hotel staff. 

All of this while still having private access to your own villa...
