Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
If you love sand, sea and sunsets, this design beach villa for 8-12 guests with a heated pool and within walking distance to one of Portugal's best west coast beaches, is just the place for your next holiday rental! The Comporta region with its hippy chic atmosphere is located approximately 1 hour south of Lisbon.
Comporta Beach Villa totals 310 sq metres and is positioned on top of a sand dune facing west towards the setting sun as well as enjoying distant views of the Arrabida hills. It has a panoramic roof top pool with a curving deck; whilst Praia do Pego is just a few minutes walk away, though lavender and rosemary-scented pine woods. The main access to the beach runs immediately in front of the villa.
A luxury villa of contemporary design, the property offers 5 bedrooms (one is a double bunk bedroom for children) and open plan areas for relaxed elegant living, built around a central courtyard set for outdoor dining. It has floor-to-ceiling windows, with smooth stone, slatted wood features and look-at-me furniture setting the tone. Also available for vacation rentals outside the summer season, it is fitted with a fireplace and has under floor heating throughout. A private walkway around the villa is planted to either side with prairie flowers and there is also a children's playground - all designed to blend in with the villa's setting.
The Comporta region located within the Sado River Nature Reserve, has long been a favorite holiday resort of Portugal's oldest families and has slowly also become known and loved by the international set, including a number of designers such as Christian Louboutin; due mainly to its simple charm and magical landscapes of rice fields and pine forests, thatched cottages and long un-spoilt golden sandy beaches.
Whilst we believe that a few mosquitoes may have kept mass tourism away, the area is nevertheless pretty popular! In the hot summer months there are parties galore hosted by hip beach clubs as well as a range of reasonably priced typical restaurants to choose from. If you prefer a quieter holiday, book your vacation outside the summer season and enjoy long walks in somewhat cooler temperatures. Nearby you can go horse riding or dolphin watching on the Sado river estuary and a new exclusive 18-hole golf course, has just opened in the area - Pinheirinho is run by the Hyatt Group and is located at a few kms distance from this rental villa.
NB - Due to some unprotected drops from exterior terraces and staircases (but onto sand dunes), this property is not ideal for unsupervised toddlers! However, the owners have young children's themselves and there are a number of toys available and a children's playground for client to use.
