— How would you describe Les Terrasses de Comporta in a few words?

Evelyne and Claude: “The house is the perfect holiday rental to enjoy the wonderful nature and weather of the Alentejo coast with sand beaches stretching over 60 km, just one hour south of Lisbon, Portugal.

Les Terrasses de Comporta is located on the edge of a small chain of hills covered with pine, oak and olive trees. Set in relative isolation, it sits above the village of Melides 5 km away. The lack of neighbouring houses allows for unobstructed views of the ocean, which are particularly magnificent at sunset.”

— What was your inspiration to offer this house as a holiday rental?

Evelyne and Claude: “We completed the construction of the house in early 2015 after having spent 2 years in Portugal to supervise its construction and work closely with the architect Manuel Aires Mateus. Our goal was to have an easy-to-run summer house and be able to enjoy it with friends and family in a way that everyone has its privacy and independence. The layout and design of the holiday house reflect this objective.

We discovered Comporta during recent holidays and really fell in love with the authenticity of the Alentejo region, the quiet way of living and the beauty and calm of the light and nature of the area.

Yet, Comporta is becoming more and more attractive to creative people, with new design boutiques and restaurants opening. The area attracts a lot of media coverage by travel or art of living magazines always eager to discover the ‘hidden secrets of the Alentejo’.”

— How would you describe the architecture and interior design of the house?

Evelyne and Claude: “Manuel Aires Mateus has won multiple awards and is one of Portugal’s most lauded contemporary architects. He drew design inspiration from the traditional Portuguese houses of Alentejo, which have been combined with a contemporary and minimalist style.

The interior of our holiday rental is painted in chalk white and has a mixture of modern and vintage furniture.

Each of the buildings is made from benched concrete, and has sea views. They also have access to the eastern patio, overlooking the gardens and an orchard of olive trees, orange and lemon trees and oak trees.

The 3 bungalows are independent and benefit from their own private patios facing west and beautiful ocean views. The main house is the communal house with its dining and living spaces. All houses are air conditioned/heated and the main house also has a fireplace.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere of the holiday rental?

Evelyne and Claude: “Each room or bungalow is very simple: the external light and the balanced proportions of each bedroom have been the key criteria in the design of the house. From the rising sun above the surrounding hills in the morning, to the sunset in the ocean in front of the main living room, the houses benefit from huge sliding glass doors giving access to wooden floored patios, which gives the impression to live both inside and outside simultaneously.”
