Embodying the bohemian spirit of Comporta, this shabby chic villa is a dream for nature lovers. Built with local wood and thatched roofs, it’s the ideal choice for those looking for an authentic experience in rural Comporta. Sitting on an impressive pine forest of twenty hectares, you can simply relax and soak up the idyllic natural surroundings. Inside, the villas are every bit as contemporary and stylish as you’d want from your getaway. Each bedroom is beautifully bright yet cosy, with comforting throws and arts and crafts made by local artisans. The charming living and kitchen space is just as lovely, with a laid-back beachy style and nods to the region as portrayed through handmade pieces and artwork. The home is beautiful, and it’s from the outside that you can really appreciate it. By taking a step back, the full magnitude of it comes into vision. Standing on a platform, encircled by towering pine trees, and featuring a charming wrap-around porch, the villa really is the picture of hippy-chic. Spend mornings exploring the grounds, listening to the chirps of the early birds, before spending blissful hours relaxing on a sun lounger. Time stands still here, while you catch up on your book and occasionally take dips in the pool, before challenging your group to an afternoon game of volleyball. Despite the rural surroundings, you’re just a few minutes drive from the picturesque town of Carvalhal. The sugary white sand beaches are just an eight-minute drive away too, where you can either watch the surfers or get on the waves yourself. There’s something special and nostalgic about exploring an area by cycling around – your host can provide you with a bike to discover the idyllic natural beauty of rice terraces, pristine beaches, and the forests of Comporta.
