Its unique architecture has already become a landmark of best design practice in the area. The villa stands harmoniously over the sand dunes 300m from Praia do Pego beach in Comporta, a popular destination among the european elite. 80 km South of Lisbon, Comporta is blessed with endless uncrowded sandy beaches to the West and the unique setting of the protected Sado Estuary (with its dolphins and the Arrabida Mountain Range National Park) to the East and the South.
Although modern and hip, the clean and discreet architectural design of the single floor villa blends with the sand dunes and the Formosa laguna with grace. The interiors are mostly made from modern materials such as smooth polished cement, which cleverly highlights the designer furniture and its colours throughout. The ethnic influences are visible in the bathrooms and furniture, giving the finishing touches of exclusive low key glamour and refinement.
THE ARCHITECTURE AND THE PRIVATE COURTYARDS
Architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto designed the house to be a dream getaway in the area of Comporta. With two private courtyards, perfect to relax, Villa Duarte is more than a house, it’s an experience. As the central point of the entire house, the main courtyard is ideal for lunching or dinning outside, read or relax after a day at the beach.
A SCENIC HEATED POOL FOR YOU TO ENJOY
The masterpiece is outside. Overlooking the sea and the distant Arrábida National Park, the chic private heated (on request) swimming pool with 15m x 2,5m lies on top of the house. Next to it, there is a fabulous built-in designer sundeck and an exterior table with a parasol and chairs, perfect to enjoy the wonderful weather during the day or just watching the stars at night with a glass of the best local wine.
AN ELEGANT AND RELAXED DECOR
The spacious modern interiors are very relaxing and comfortable due to its eclectic decoration. Magnificent wood tables from Bali, a Budha from India, masks from Mozambique and other unique pieces from Brazil, Mexico, Morocco, Tunisia, Thailand or S. Tomé live together in perfect harmony.
With 5 bedrooms, which accommodate up to 10 guests, 5 bathrooms, living room, fully equipped kitchen and dining area, it is perfect to enjoy in summer or in the colder season.
