The Telegraph, January 2017
Casas na Areia within Top 5 Villa Holidays in Portugal and we couldn’t agree more.
The article goes on to say that on high days and villa holidays in Comporta, well-heeled Lisbonites kick off their shoes on the driftwood-studded sands which is located on the west coast, one hour south of the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, where the beach is a ribbon of binding white between dense pine forests and the Atlantic Ocean.
Stretching between the two villages, Comporta and Carvalhal and just behind the sand dunes, Compora is famous for its rice paddies and although generally under-developed, the best option for a difficult to find villa, is the sensational and architectural gem is Casas na Areia which oozes stylish comfort and authenticity.
Designed by the much-acclaimed architect Aires Mateus and built in part by the local craftsman and super cool guy, Snr Pinela, the property is made up of four detached thatched houses, two of wood and weeds, two in white concrete, with four large bedrooms split between three buildings and a kitchen dining area and open plan living area with a floor of fine sand in the fourth.
Finally, the article mentions that the property would suit two couples with children, and a swimming pool and bicycles await; horses can also be organised for an amazing ride along the beach, which we highly recommend from the local horse master Jose Ribeira from Cavalos na Areia.
Comporta.biz would like to add, Casas na Areia has probably done as much for the publicity of Comporta as anybody has, privately or corporately. Due to its simple but well thought-out design and usage of mainly local organic material, the home has been well received in many of the top architectural and fashion magazines over the last many years and has attracted visitors from all over the world.
We would recommend that you visit their website casasnaareia.com as the owners Joao and Andrea Rodrigues have added an additional three stunning properties to their portfolio, one in Comporta, Lisbon and Montemor in the Alentejo, all designed by the same architect Aires Mateus and three again, that you will be pleased to have visited.
