"Comporta is unspoiled nature, sun, peace. Magnificent landscapes, miles and miles of empty white sandy beaches, pine trees. The scent of lavender in the dunes mingled with all the wildflowers. The birds on the rice fields." - Francoise Dumas Sometimes called the Ibiza of Portugal, Comporta, with it's relaxed pace and artistic community, is the ideal destination for those looking to wander off course. The Villages swaths of beaches and patchwork of rice paddies are serene backdrops for the striking homes found there: rustic cabanas and thatched-roof huts reflecting the carefree lifestyle that has become Comporta's hallmark. This distinctive setting challenges the minds of architects and designers, yielding unique spaces that delightfully blur the line between interior and exterior. Within these pages, the regions characteristic cobalt blue is reflected from the sky an sea to the walls, shutters and design spaces that adorn its homes, both picturesque and bold. Discover the beauty of the simplicity with Comporta Bliss. AUTHOR: Carlos Souza is the vice president of PR for Valentino USA and serves as its worldwide brand ambassador.
