The Sibarist

Charming rural house in Alentejo


This holiday home in Melides, in the province of Comporta (Portugal) is located in a typical rural Alentejo neighbourhood called Vale da Cobra, meaning valley of the snakes, named after the small winding road that runs through a gently undulating landscape.

Arriving at this family-run rural retreat, the visitor is invaded by a serene calm largely provided by the surrounding nature and the well-integrated architecture. The interiors feature exposed wooden beams with a gabled roof, lime mortar walls, floors finished in micro-cement, furniture in sinuous, organic shapes and made from natural materials, fibres, cottons and linens, all designed to achieve relaxation in the midst of nature.
