Live in a country location that touches the sea! Located between the countryside and the sea, at Encosta do Salgado villas you can enjoy the best of both worlds. The fresh Atlantic breeze and the sea are just uphill, where the beautiful Salgado beach awaits you with a wide stretch of golden sand, and in front, a traditional Portuguese village surrounded by green fields.
The connection with nature is ever present in this location, with hiking trails that connect you to the village and sea. This connection with nature is also present in the layout of each spacious plot, which takes advantage of the terrain's natural slope while maximising privacy and space in each of the split-level villas.
Ancient Portuguese communities who settled on the Silver Coast built their homes midway up the "encosta" (slope), knowing that the natural slope of the terrain would shelter them from the Atlantic breeze. The architect was inspired by this ancient knowledge, creating a low-density community that stems from the landscape's natural slope, offering uninterrupted views of the countryside and village, as well as a south-facing orientation that bathes the homes in sunshine all day.
The homes have a modern, open-plan design, with panoramic views over the valley, each with spacious gardens and a private swimming pool. A safe place for children to ride their bicycles and play in the street, with cul de sacs and a caring community to look out for them.
Wake up to the rising sun in a home filled with natural light. Designed to blend naturally with the landscape and the Silver Coast lifestyle, organic materials, such as natural stone walls, blend beautifully with the surrounding landscape and the bright interiors flow seamlessly between the indoor and outdoor areas. Just walk out your door to the surrounding green hillsides, where the occasional windmill stands out against the blue of the Atlantic and horizon.

Live surrounded by nature and the sea! Families love this location for its proximity to the village, nature and beaches. On one side, the green of the Silver Coast's agricultural fields, where local farmers grow their crops the old-fashioned way and the air carries the scent of country flowers. On the other side, the fresh Atlantic breeze, with the sea is just uphill and a wide stretch of sandy beach and endless horizon awaits you. Salgado Beach is a dream location for anyone who appreciates peaceful strolls next to the ocean, kilometres of pristine golden sand where the only sounds you will hear are waves crashing against the shore and a distant seagull.
A home designed with your well-being in mind, yet very close to several famous beaches, hiking and cycling trails, fabulous restaurants and daily reminders of why this region is considered "The Real Portugal". Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and local backroads, where traditional Portuguese windmills or the occasional herd of sheep are part of the experience while discovering the natural landscape. You can hike inland or along the coast, and there is so much to explore, including vestiges of the century-old pilgrim routes, the ancient church of São Gião or the farmlands once cultivated by the Cistercian monks.
Just a short stroll from the home is the centre of Famalicão, an authentic Portuguese village with its quaint church square and bandstand, cafés, restaurants and a pharmacy. A place to be part of the community and enjoy Portugal's simple pleasures!
Nazaré is a 3-minute drive from the home, as well as Praia do Norte the location where Garrett McNamara, the American professional big wave surfer, broke the World Record for the biggest wave ever surfed! São Martinho do Porto with its natural shell-shaped bay, a favourite for young families with its protected shallow waters, is only a 7-minute drive.
The rental potential of these villas is excellent, combining the tranquillity of nature with the beach and many entertainment options makes this a highly sought-after location for all generations.
