Your whole perspective on holidays is bound to change. After all, this is not a beach inn, it is a venue where elements merge and offer you shelter for you to better appreciate them. You start venturing into extreme sports and try out windsurfing, kitesurfing, bodyboarding or even kite flying or you set on a journey to discover a sheltered beach.

During summer, the large terrace, the lawned areas, the shadows of the stems and the pool, have everything you need to spend a few cool, comfortable and sheltered days.

Welcome to Sagres, the town that witnessed the arrival of Henry the Navigator and his navigation school, who have changed the way the medieval world thought about itself. It was the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry - the main driving force behind the Portuguese discoveries - that set the tone for the construction of this inn, which was always intended as both hotel and safe harbour. The warm shades of the spices, the floor and the ancient tiles, the details of the Christian crosses that adorned so many sails - present in lampstands and curtain rods - offer you a journey through time, back to the days when men faced the tides a and Sagres was far from everything.
Pestana Tips: watching the fishing trawlers return and the fish arriving at Porto da Baleeira market is a unique show. And if you happen to be in town on August 15th, you can join, for free, the boat procession in honour of Our Lady of the Assumption, which goes to the Cape of St. Vincent and returns. Share a unique moment in the life of fishermen who every day offer their lives to the sea.
