    Tropical oasis with swimming pool and luxury spa facilities near Lisbon

    In the heart of Ribatejo, just 35 minutes from the bustling city of Lisbon, you will find Salvaterra Country House. This fine Portuguese getaway is the perfect place to relax, unwind and discover the beautiful region. The accommodation combines the traditional culture of Ribatejo, modern decor, and tropical atmosphere into a comfortable stay where you never want to leave. Grab your favorite book, settle down on a lounger by the pool and imagine yourself in a tropical oasis. The wellness facilities complete the ultimate holiday feeling.

    At Salvaterra Country House, everything revolves around the color green. This is not only reflected in the tropical plants and the carefully thought-out details in the suites, but also in the love for the environment. The hospitable owners have ensured the most eco-friendly possible stay, where comfort and harmony with nature go hand in hand. This is also reflected in the beautiful suites, where you will find many soft, earthy tones and natural materials. Escape from the busy city life and retreat into a true paradise, that's exactly what Salvaterra Country House offers.

    Every day here is about tranquility and comfort. Wake up to the sound of birds, while looking out over the tropical flowers and plants. Opt for breakfast in bed so you can enjoy your warm blankets a bit longer or let the first rays of sun warm you on your private terrace. Stroll through the tropical gardens and be surprised by the bamboo forest: the second largest collection of ornamental bamboo in Portugal. Feel like taking a refreshing dip? Then end your walk at the wonderful pool amidst the greenery. At the Honesty Bar you can treat yourself to a drink or a self-mixed cocktail.

    A stay at Salvaterra Country House is perfect for a nice holiday with your best friend or the love of your life. In this small-scale retreat, you can relax, unwind and completely rest, but there is also plenty to discover in the nearby area. The accommodation offers a wide variety of activities. From boat trips and wine tastings to horse riding and hot air balloon rides, there is something for everyone. One thing is for sure: you secretly never want to leave here.

    Moments for yourself in the luxury spa

    One of the most beloved spots at Salvaterra Country House is the Spa. Opt for a good massage after a busy day or treat yourself to the warmth of the sauna or the Turkish bath. The massages ensure that body and mind come back into alignment. Essential oils are used and calming music is played in the background, transporting you to a world of inner peace and tranquility. The wood-fired Hot Tub in the tropical garden is the perfect place to end the day: sink into the warm water, enjoy a drink and admire the clear starry sky.

    Sleeping in a tropical oasis

    Luxury four-poster beds, soft light, natural materials, and a cozy fireplace: these are the suites in a nutshell. They quickly feel like home and create a perfect retreat in a tropical paradise. Every detail has been carefully thought out. The beds are covered with Egyptian cotton sheets, the spacious bathroom is stocked with organic bath products, and there is a fridge, plus tea and coffee facilities. The highlight of it all? The delightful bathtub in the bedroom.

    Enjoy culinary delights in nearby restaurants

    During a stay at Salvaterra Country House, you are treated to a picnic basket full of delicacies every morning. Freshly baked bread, homemade granola, and fresh fruit ensure a good start to the day. For dinner, you can choose from various highly rated restaurants in the area. Take for example Cisco, where you can experience traditional Portuguese cuisine or the Michelin-rated restaurant Taberna Ó Balcão. Prefer to spend an evening on your own porch? Most restaurants will happily deliver meals. You can also make use of the beautiful outdoor kitchen located in the middle of the gardens.

    Discover the unique Ribatejo

    Ribatejo is a unique region stretching along the banks of the Tejo river. Discover the extraordinary flora and fauna on a river safari, stroll through the breathtaking rice fields or visit the idyllic town of Santarém, where you'll pass various exquisite buildings along the slate streets. The best viewpoint can be found in the gardens of Jardim das Portas do Sol. Looking for a sports activity? Choose a canoe tour at the Barragem de Magos dam or go cycling.



    Salvaterra Country House is located in the heart of the Portuguese region of Ribatejo (part of Alentejo), just half an hour away from the vibrant city of Lisbon. A wonderful place to retreat, yet still plenty of opportunities to go out and explore.
