Fodor's Expert Review Areias do Seixo

Praceta Do Atlântico, Mexilhoeira, Póvoa de Penafirme, Lisbon, 2560–046, Portugal Fodor's Choice

Set among the pine trees in front of Mexilhoeira Beach, this small and stylish eco-conscious hotel, 20 minutes from Torres Vedras, was built with a desire to harmoniously integrate it with its surroundings. All but one of the rooms have views of the ocean and dunes (it makes up for the lack of a view with a private garden). Decorated with natural driftwood, all the accommodations have underfloor heating for winter, while in summer a fan and the sea breeze are enough to keep you cool. The restaurant serves creations from the hotel's own garden.
