Explorers called this "the end of the world",

there still exists a feeling of remoteness, wildness, unknown and adventure.

The freedom of the ocean and the rugged wilderness is what draws people to  this beautiful place. A few days on holiday and the rest of the world's hustle and bustle slips away...beaches, cafes, smells of fresh baked fish, red, orange and gold as the sun dips below the water, wild surf, black sea cliffs, thick salty sea air.

The area is quite mystical, ancient megaliths dot the countryside. Towns with names such as Sagres ("sacred") harbour the old forts and churches of the middle age explorers. Aqua Ventura respects this history, following this feeling of adventure with aim at creating special holidays for everybody, whether it is  staying in our beautiful eco lodge or helping you catch your first wave or out on a walking trip, trekking the back country, living free, exploring, relaxing, just having fun.

Their Eco Story

The 150 acre farm set close to the Aldeia Da Pedralva is a beautiful, tranquil place. Renovating & building from scratch they were able to integrate their buildings into the natural splendor of the landscape.

Since they acquire most of their energy from the sun, their supply is limited to what nature gives us. As such, they must ask everyone to be kind to their system; heavy electricity usage and the use of high consumption appliances – such as irons, hair dryers, etc. – will quickly drain our power supply. If you require the use of such items, they have special, low energy ones theu can provide when needed. Of course, this doesn’t mean to say you’ll be sat in the dark if the sun isn’t out; we will always provide energy, but it’s part of the experience to be conscious of your usage. The same goes for water.

Buildings: In 2014 the property was abandoned, buildings have been rebuilt using different natural materials to best integrate into the surrounding nature. All cottages have beautiful views and private spaces, with minimum environmental, impact built using as many local materials as possible stylish green: buildings.

This is a nature-lovers retreat, and would suit anyone wanting a truly comfortable and stylish accommodation experience whilst also enjoying the peace and adventure that such a bush setting offers.

They recycle glass, plastic, paper, metal and food and because they produce their energy from sun they operate with a very low carbon output and very little waste. This of course is a bonus because you are spending your holiday greener for the same value with no strain on the planet. Of course they ask our workers, visitors & guests to help them realize this and stick to this attitude. Tney ask you too to attain an ecological attitude.
