Pedras Salgadas Eco Resort is a quiet retreat in the Parque de Pedras Salgadas, a pristine national park in northern Portugal. The popular spa & nature park started with seven little cabins perched on short stilts amidst the trees. Now they have added two more exclusive cabins lofted higher in the trees and accessed via a long ramp. The Tree Snake Houses are long and slender and more charming than dangerous.

The treehouses were designed by Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, who also helped design the original cabins and the overall plan for the resort. To minimize impact, the modular treehouses were prefabricated and then assembled on site. In accordance with the overall sustainability plan, the accommodations have minimal impact on the surrounding eco system. Natural materials and lots of daylight further the experience and help immerse the guests in the forest. Each treehouse has a bedroom with a writing desk, a bathroom, and a kitchenette.
