Make a holiday home in Comporta your home away from home

Alentejo is the place to go for that laid back rural holiday where endless green plains, scattered trees and ambling cattle are all you see for miles. Amid the gentle hills of this south-central area of Portugal are expansive olive plantations and vineyards. The air, unlike that in metropoli around the world, is crisp and sweet, scented with ripening olives. In other words, tourists headed for holiday homes in Comporta and other parts of the Alentejo littoral can look forward to perfect hiking and biking conditions. They can also expect to be taken back in time as they meander through the narrow streets of medieval towns. HomeAway ensures that these explorers have spacious, luxurious and cosy dwellings to return to by offering them family villas surrounded by towering trees and lush lawns. Some of these Comporta holiday rentals are situated close to Alentejo’s scenic beaches as well.

Things to do

-Beaches: Right off the bat, those envisioning miles of soft sands for leisurely promenades will not find what they’re looking for along Alentejo’s coastline. They’re better off heading to the adjacent Algarve. What visitors will find here instead are small beaches surrounded by towering cliffs. They provide dream photo ops for shutterbugs and stunning panoramas for those who take the trouble to climb to the cliff tops.

-Hiking and biking: This is the activity holidaymakers angling for stays in Comporta holiday homes and villas will most enjoy. As they trudge or cycle through the ‘fields of gold’ Sting sang about (there are extensive wheat plantations here), visitors will be struck by a soothing sense of serenity. This largely agricultural area is also carpeted in vineyards and olive plantations and dotted with cork-oaks. Gazing at this staid scenery from the tops of the gentle hills, one will surely feel lost in paradise.

-Monuments: Set in the midst of the acres of plains are the remains of ancient structures that speak of the locale’s pre-historic and Roman heritage. The Castro da Cola village contains ruins and artefacts that date back to the Neolithic, Bronze and Middle Ages. From what is left of those ancient settlements visitors will be able to envision how people lived in those times. One of Alentejo’s most alluring sites is the field with scattered megalithic stones jutting out of it.

-Outdoor activity: Apart from walking through the vast landscape, there are other activities adrenaline junkies can look forward to as they make their reservations for holiday homes in Comporta. They can traverse the endless plains in a hot air balloon, taking in the sights from above. The more daring can skydive into the fields of Evora. For those who love dolphins, there is the chance to see them up close and even play with them.

-Water sport: Conditions off Alentejo’s coastline are ideal for surfing and a host of other water sports. There is a diving centre from which tourists can secure gear and introductory lessons to enable them to explore the underwater treasures of the Atlantic. The inland lakes and rivers are great for freshwater canoeing.

Weather in Comporta

This locale is reckoned as one of the hottest in Europe. So those booking holiday rentals in Comporta during the summer months of June, July and August can expect days when temperatures approach 40°C though on average, temperatures range between 26 and 29°C. Packing that bottle of sunscreen is therefore not an option. Rainfall at this time of year in Alentejo is virtually unheard of. Winters, as one would expect in such a semi-arid area, are mild with temperatures averaging from 10 to 13°C. The rainy season occurs between October and December.

Travel to Comporta

To get to Alentejo, tourists coming from abroad will ordinarily book a flight to the Lisbon Airport, Portugal’s main international gateway. From here they can make the 64-mile journey to Alentejo by bus, a trip that generally takes three and a half hours. There are usually only three buses plying this route in a day so visitors might want to hire a vehicle to drive to their Comporta holiday homes.

Sara has been a fabulous host, even sorting out an additional highchair for us which was a total godsend. The house is beautifully presented inside and out and has everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. The children loved the space to run around and we enjoyed lounging around by the pool when they napped! You do need a car to stay here really but with a driveway to park it on it felt very safe. Lots of dogs in the neighbourhood but you soon get used to this and they're all behind gates!! Thanks again for a truly wonderful holiday. We can't wait to come back. Love the Woolley's and the Norman's! xxx

Came back this year at the same period, and everything was perfect again. Easy communication with the owner(s), super-friendly welcome (thanks again Pedro), absolutely gorgeous and ultra-quiet location with total privacy and of course fantastic house. At this time of the year, the heated pool is a highly-recommended option. We've been renting similar houses all over Europe (and beyond) for about 10 years several times per year, and this is definitely one of the best we've had so far. The whole package is excellent, and it's worth mentioning that the house is well-furbished as well, from towels to dishes to deck chairs to... you name it. (And trust me, that's not everywhere the case...) Needless to say, we'll be back.
