Tree Houses – Pedras Salgadas

The spa town of Pedras Salgadas, once a holiday destination of royalty, is gaining a new charm thanks to Pedras Salgadas Spa & Nature Park, an innovative hotel project aimed at nature lovers.

The property promotes nature tourism with comfort and a luxury environment, incorporated into a hundred-year-old park with fifty acres of natural flora, an hour’s drive from Porto.


Incorporated into the park, and designed and conceived by architect Luís Rebelo de Andrade, the Tree Houses arose from the challenge of creating an element that could fulfill the imaginary of the tree houses we know from childhood, but for luxury travelers. The houses are made of slate and wood, indigenous raw materials, to help foster integration with the landscape and render these architectural houses nearly invisible from the outside. Inside, the minimalist tree houses have two windows, one through which the life of the park may be observed, and another to look at the stars, a bathroom, a double bed and a sofa.


Sustainability and ecology were constantly present in the development of this project: the non-impervious floor surfaces, reinforced coatings and insulation, the reuse of blackwater, the very low consumption lighting systems using LED technology, among other solutions, push the initiative forward.



Don’t leave Tree Houses – Pedras Salgadas without: black ceramics. The nearby town of Vilar de Nantes is one of the few places in the world that conserves the art.
