Written 4 months ago by
Comporta in Portugal, in the past couple of years, has become a secret spot for off the beaten track hotels and experiences in the ever beloved Portugal, a country that has also grown mostly organically as a destination of choice to the in the know traveler. This European summer wouldn’t see it any different, yet Comporta is fast becoming a barefoot chic destination to those in search of tranquility and simplicity with a touch of positive luxury. Nestled on a stunning 17 acre estate, surrounded by undulating umbrella pines and cork trees, wild sand dunes, stunning rice fields and over 60km of pristine, white-sand beaches, Sublime Comporta is a magical, unspoiled stay yet to be fully discovered.
Its 34 suites, villas and rooms naturally dispersed across several buildings among pebbled grounds and fragrant pine tree gardens merge beautifully with the environment with architectural solutions that use natural elements of wood, stone and glass to provide natural floodlight in all spaces, blurring the limits of in and outer spaces. This is a wild part of the Portuguese landscape, rugged, pristine, mysterious. The hotel is surrounded by sand dunes, rice fields and deserted beaches enhancing the feeling of remoteness and privacy.
The Sem Porta restaurant, meaning ‘No Doors’, is a showcase of seasonal produce harvested from the hotel’s gardens right in front of its large glass floor to ceiling windows. The clientele will be able to experience organic food in communion with the natural flow of life and work of local fisherman and wineries.
Only one hour from a European capital, here wildlife is abundant, time seems to stand still and one has the possibility to experience all that sought after local authenticity. Sublime Comporta is a combination of tranquility and simplicity that is both addictive and inspiring, reminding us of the magic of experiencing more with less.
Experience more with less, a magical unspoiled destination yet to be discovered.
