The Atlantic pool at Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club in Santa Cruz is among the 101 most impressive in the world.
The choice is the Condé Nast Traveler who puts three Portuguese pools among the most incredible in the world, whether they be private hotel pools with stunning views.
The Albatroz is a small hotel of charm and its pool is naturally formed by volcanic rocks, being supplied by sea water
In addition to the Madeiran hotel, the editors of the Condé Nast Traveler chose the swimming pool of the São Lourenço do Barrocal estate. It is located in Monsaraz, in the heart of the Alentejo, and stands out for its connection with nature, and of course, with wine. The editors of the CNT emphasize the fact that it is a quiet pool, with the peculiarity of having a gravel at one end. The pool was designed by the architect Souto Moura and the huge stone is called barrocal.
The Pool of the House in Time is also highlighted because it looks like a small beach, as the American magazine describes it, and mixes with the landscape.It is located on a 400 hectare estate, near Montemor-o-Novo, Alentejo, where lakes and cork oaks mark the landscape.
