Encosta do Salgado is a new residential development that reflects the essence of the Silver Coast lifestyle. These beautifully designed new build villas are bathed in all-day sunshine and include a private pool and panoramic views over the countryside. All just a stone's throw from a pristine coastline that will take your breath away.
Promoted by Immo Portugal and Portugal Realty — two of the Silver Coast’s most experienced real estate companies — and developed by the prestigious contractor Presprop - Portugal Construction, these new build villas for sale are in an amazing location where the connection with nature is ever-present.
Designed to blend with the landscape
According to the architectural team, “this community was designed according to century-old local traditions. We studied how the first communities who settled on Portugal’s Silver Coast built their homes midway up the ‘encosta’, so that the terrain's natural slope would shelter them from the Atlantic breeze. This age-old custom inspired us to create a low-density community that stems from the landscape, with uninterrupted views of the countryside and village, as well as a south-facing orientation that bathes the homes in sunshine.”
Another highlight of Encosta do Salgado Villas is its spacious plots, ensuring a fluid connection between indoor and outdoor areas and plenty of space outside to enjoy the sunshine all year round.
Wake up to the rising sun
Designed with laid-back living and eco-efficiency in mind, Encosta do Salgado Villas have an open-plan layout, plenty of natural light, a fully-equipped kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and stunning views over the valley.
Between the countryside and the sea
Encosta do Salgado Villas offer an amazing refuge in a private community, yet very close to several famous beaches, hiking and cycling trails, fabulous restaurants and daily reminders of why this region is known as "The Real Portugal".
Families love this location for its proximity, with the village, nature and beaches, all right outside their doorstep!
Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and backroads, where traditional Portuguese windmills or the occasional herd of sheep are part of the local’s experience. You can hike inland or along the coast, and there is so much to explore, including vestiges of century-old pilgrim routes, the ancient São Gião Church or the farmlands once cultivated by the Cistercian monks.
Salgado is a dream beach for anyone who appreciates peaceful strolls along the shore, with several kilometres of golden sand and an untouched landscape. Here, the only sounds you will hear are waves crashing against the shore and a distant seagull.
Just a short stroll from the villas is the centre of Famalicão, an authentic Portuguese village with its quaint church square and bandstand, cafés, restaurants and pharmacy. A place to be part of the community and discover Portugal's simple pleasures!
Nazaré Beach is a 3-minute drive from the villas, as well as Praia do Norte — where American professional big wave surfer Garrett McNamara broke the World Record for the biggest wave ever surfed! São Martinho do Porto with its shell-shaped bay, a favourite for young families with its protected shallow waters, is only a 7-minute drive.
Combining the tranquility of nature with the beach and many entertainment options, this is a highly sought-after holiday home destination for all generations. The Silver Coast is also well known for its popular historical sites, traditional restaurants, cafés and plenty of things to discover all year round. An excellent option for permanent living or a second home in Portugal for unforgettable holidays.
