Casa da Comporta is literally built on the sand! Its unique architecture has already become a landmark of best design practice in the area. The villa stands harmoniously over the sand dunes 300m from Praia do Pego beach in Comporta, a popular destination among the european elite. 80 km South of Lisbon, Comporta is blessed with endless uncrowded sandy beaches to the West and the unique setting of the protected Sado Estuary (with its dolphins and the Arrabida Mountain Range National Park) to the East and the South.
Although modern and hip, the clean and discreet architectural design of the single floor villa blends with the sand dunes and the Formosa laguna with grace. The interiors are mostly made from modern materials such as smooth polished cement, which cleverly highlights the designer furniture and its colours throughout. The ethnic influences are visible in the bathrooms and furniture, giving the finishing touches of exclusive low key glamour and refinement.
Architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto designed the house to be a dream getaway in the area of Comporta. With two private courtyards, perfect to relax, Casa da Comporta is more than a house, it's an experience. As the central point of the entire house, the main courtyard is ideal for lunching or dinning outside, read or relax after a day at the beach.
The masterpiece is outside. Overlooking the sea and the distant Arrábida National Park, the chic private heated swimming pool (15m x 2,5m) lies on top of the house. Next to it, there is a fabulous built-in designer sundeck and an exterior table with a parasol and chairs, perfect to enjoy the wonderful weather during the day or just watching the stars at night with a glass of the best local wine.
The spacious modern interiors are very relaxing and comfortable due to its eclectic decoration. Magnificent wood tables from Bali, a Budha from India, masks from Mozambique and other unique pieces from Brazil, Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia, Thailand or S. Tomé live together in perfect harmony.
With 5 bedrooms, which accommodate up to 12 persons (8 adults and 4 children), 5 bathrooms, living room, fully equipped kitchen and dining area, Casa da Comporta is perfect to enjoy in summer or in the colder season. In the autumn and winter, the heated floors are perfect to walk barefoot inside the house while watching the nature outside.

We are a family with 3 children and we all share the passion for travelling.
At our house in Comporta we live together with objects we brought from different parts of the world and with them we revive some of the happiest moments of our lives. We choose this house and the spot because they both have a bit of everything we love the most.
Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

João Ribeiro purchased this villa in 2012
This architectural gem creates the perfect environment for a family holiday. The house has a natural flow - with cool, concrete surfaces, sea breezes, shade and light, shared spaces and private nooks. Each bedroom provides a quiet and private space to sleep while the shared spaces provide room for gathering, reading, talking, cooking and simply taking in the beautiful environment between the dunes and the rice fields. The landscaping around the house is beautiful and fragrant, the roof-top pool and lounge area relaxing. The sea breezes and sounds of crashing waves are a constant, and the beach a short walk or drive. Both the beach and the small town nearby, provide everything you need for a relaxing break -- fantastic seafood, a small pastry shop, gourmet grocery, fresh fruits and vegetables - are all in close proximity. The area is uncrowded and unspoiled, with many options for great food, shopping, etc. Our hosts provided all the best recommendations - including horseback riding on the beach, visits to a small fishing village, great restaurants and shops. We can't say enough good things about this property and this area and hope to return.
