The Sibarist

Cabin in a nature reserve in Comporta


This detached cottage surrounded by beaches, rice fields and secluded villages is located in the small parish of Carvalhal, Grândola, a Portuguese municipality in the Setúbal district of the Alentejo region. Its location is privileged as it is in the central part of the Atlantic coast, facing the sea and at the foot of the rice fields, on the spectacular coast of Portugal, specifically in the nature reserve of the Sado Estuary, in Comporta. Its architecture is based on the typical fishermen’s buildings of the area, with a predominant use of wood and lime facades and the use of natural materials and fibres. It has a surface area of 570 m2 including the terrace and porch areas. The two-storey house, which has five bedrooms and six bathrooms and can accommodate 12 people, also has a living room with fireplace, library and sitting area, dining room, kitchen and garage. The area of the finca extends over 2,000 m2 and includes an infinity pool with adjoining cabana, whose boomerang shape was made to respect the existing pine trees. Some of the rooms have queen-size beds, others are twin and all have en suite bathrooms.
