Here is a tiny guide from an insider to get to know more about Comporta, Portugal.
What is Comporta about?
Comporta is a small region that lies between Grandola and Alcacer do Sal, which lies along the Alentejo coast of Portugal. You may feel that the ride from Lisbon is a world away,but it is just a ninety-minute drive.
There are few villages in Comporta, including Comporta village itself, that can be explored by foot. If you decide to take the car, then be prepared to marvel at the idyllic scenery. This region is well preserved for the two main reasons.
The first reason is, that most ofComporta is located within an agriculture and nature reserve, with strict rules on construction. The second reason is that since the 1950s most of the estate has been in the hands of a private family, who did not want to over-develop the area, and only allowed a few homes to be used for vacation purposes.
Recently, some of the land has been sold for high-end, low-density tourism, which has put Comporta on the map, for luxury accommodation and holiday homes.The first hotel in Comporta was sublime Comporta, which opened in 2014.
Development rules are still quite strict and a recent law, states that no new developments may be built within two kilometers of the shore. The architectural work of the new buildings continues to be influenced by the local fisherman’s huts that have thatched roofs and wooden or reed walls.
