CELEBRATE NATURE WITH SAGRES THIS AUTUMN
Berlin, August 20, 2012 – Can’t decide whether you’re an explorer of the sea or land? Choose the best of both natural worlds with Memmo Baleeira in Sagres, Portugal. An ambassador for the wonders of this region, the hotel is planning a special treat during the Sagres Bird Watching Festival, from September 30 – October 7. The region offers full day programs around a natural phenomenon occurring nowhere else in Portugal: the autumnal migration of soaring birds. Get to know your eagles from vultures, hawks and falcons, and some exotic rarities like the Eurasian Black Vulture, Egyptian Vulture and Honey Buzzard. Go on field trips with experts to different areas during the day or night to observe or even catch, study and release birds. There are also ocean trips to check out seabirds and if observing feathered creatures isn’t your thing, choose dolphin watching or horse-riding on the gorgeous Costa Vicentina coast. For families, fun activities include a natural treasure hunt to explore the mysteries of the pine forest of Vale Santo and arts & crafts workshops such as the Winged Bazaar. Memmo Baleeira, one of the partners of the festival, will not only help you find the right excursion or an off-the-course activity, but also send you off with a delicious and healthy lunch or energy box filled with homemade goodies.
Sagres is known for its spectacular landscapes, from woodlands to farmland, estuaries and sand dunes, as well as the sea itself, supporting thousands of species of fauna and flora. In addition to being a great place for birdwatching, it is also the perfect location for hiking and cycling, with landscapes that are in themselves inspiring. Cape St. Vincent will leave guests entranced with its red sea-cliffs, and the Memmo Baleeira has several packages for trekking enthusiasts, with guided tours through the Western Algarve. In October and November, rent bikes from the hotel at special rates. The Memmo bracelet, which guests receive upon check-in, gives them the possibility to enjoy exclusive offers from the local shops and restaurants of Sagres.
Memmo Baleeira is a pristine getaway for guests. The brainchild of Portuguese hotelier and surfer Rodrigo Machaz has 144 rooms, each with views over either lush gardens or glittering Atlantic waters. The hotel's minimal and stripped-back aesthetic adapts to the natural landscape. Rooms are furnished simply in a mostly white palette, where the natural landscape takes centre stage and the blues from the ocean, for example, seep in through the panoramic windows to color the rooms instead. The hotel restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine using locally grown produce. For a respite from all the action, the Memmo Spa is equipped with a sauna, Turkish bath, heated indoor pool and treatment rooms offering a range of body and facial treatments.
