Countryside by the sea, at Encosta do Salgado villas you can enjoy the best of both worlds! This community of modern villas overlooks the tranquil countryside and village of Famalicão da Nazaré, on the iconic Silver Coast of Portugal. Home to the beaches of Praia do Salgado, São Martinho do Porto and Nazaré.
These modern homes, each with a private swimming pool, are located in a low-density community with spacious plots and split-level homes that follow the natural slope of the "encosta", all with panoramic views over the countryside and village. The connection with nature is ever present in this location with hiking trails that connect you to the village and sea.
The architects have taken their inspiration from the ancient Portuguese communities who settled on the Silver Coast, building their homes midway up the "encosta" (slope) sheltered from the sea breeze.
The homes are south-facing with all-day sunshine. With a modern open plan design and 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.
Elements of the region are present in the home's architecture, with appointments of natural stone and an easy connection with the surrounding landscape of Serra da Pescaria. Just walk out your door to the surrounding green hillsides, where the occasional windmill stands out against the blue of the Atlantic and horizon.
Wake up to the rising sun in a home filled with natural light, modern finishings and spacious, bright interiors, that flow seamlessly between the indoor and outdoor areas.

- 3 Bedrooms
