My Comporta with... Cristina Jorge de Carvalho
"[Comporta] is a very quiet place, with a very simple lifestyle”
How did you discover Comporta?
Many years ago, through some friends. We have been coming here every summer since then. And also, off-season.
Why is Comporta so special?
Because it still is unknown to so many and because it invites you to lead such a relaxed and simple lifestyle. Everything is scattered, there are the beautiful rice fields, especially when they’re green, the desert beaches, the hamlets and villages, the boat rides to Arrábida, the Palafítico Quay, the horse rides along the beach, the picnics on the beach... In terms of architecture, the huts are unique with their thatched roofs. Whenever I have to design a house here I always look at them for inspiration for something a bit more modern.
