Surrounded by sand dunes the exclusive holiday home is located just 400 meters from Portugal’s most loved beach Praia do Pego. The house – a composition of glass, concrete and terraces made of pine wood – has a simple and clean design and, with its 265 square meters, offers plenty of space for up to six people. By virtue of its large sliding glass doors, the ambience is airy and transparent, but the sheltered courtyard also ensures complete privacy. On the large roof terrace with its heated pool you are totally undisturbed and can swim here even in winter.
What to do
Horseback riding on the beach, dolphin watching on a catamaran, bird watching, sailing, diving, biking, surfing, golf, trips to the historic cities and sites, wine tasting and experience some of the best portuguese cuisine.
Why we like this house
The house is airy and light on its feet, but also offers a lot of privacy thanks to the sheltered inner courtyard. The location near the beach is great.

Couples, families, holidays with friends

Just spent a great week, family of 4, in the midst of the virus crisis. This was our second time in Comporta (great vibes wonderful restaurants and beaches). The villa is perfect for a small group; beautifully designed, easy living, great location…… We alternated our days between a walk to Pego Beach (Sal), a short bike ride to Carvalhal Beach (the new Sublime beach Club), and a 15 min drive to Comporta Beach (Comporta Cafe). Could easily have made it 2 weeks. Andre is a brilliant owner/host. Given the virus it was touch and go if we could go from the UK and Andre and I were in daily contact and he showed a very considerate and flexible attitude as we faced possible cancellation. In the end we went, felt far safer than in the UK, everywhere in this region showed so much respect to the rules and given the low rate of infection in Alentejo it is incredibly baffling as to why the UK still has it on the red list (as of today). So overall this is a special place, the Comporta vibe is special, low key but classy; our 21 & 17 year old ‘London’ daughters want to go back next year. Rent a couple of bikes via Andre, take his restaurant recommendations, hire a convertible, pack light, eat well and get a great tan !!!
My wife and I, with our two teenagers, recently spent a wonderful week at Casa do Pego. The house is as stunning as depicted in the photographs, boldly Modern with impeccable interior design, while remaining extremely comfortable and well connected to nature. Andre was an ideal host, communicative and flexible, and full of useful recommendations. In February the area was quiet, but several excellent restaurants and shops were open and there was much to explore. We’d gladly return!
A truly stunning house in a unique location. We stayed for a week in September with our two grown up kids and it was perfect in every way. A walk to the beach each day for swimming and chilling out, a salty skinned return walk after a cold beer at the beach bar, a stop at the fig tree to pick some for breakfast. Into the gorgeous house with a plunge in the pool and a final relax on the roof before cooking supper in the kitchen surrounded by the exceptional architectural vision that is this house. Perfection. We will be back.
Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Casa do Pego. The home is exactly as it looks in pictures. It is perfect for 4-6 people. Andre and the very hospitable team he has to look after you make your stay enjoyable and relaxing – from Chef Sandra to the housekeeping to the friendly gardener that helped fix our mountain bike settings to the amazing folks at Comporta WOW who set up amazing secret beach picnic for us. It is a lovely area just a convenient 1.5 hours away from Lisbon and is the perfect place for a real timeout from the world. I highly recommend Casa do Pego for a week, or more, detoxing in and around Comporta. Thank you for having us !
It’s taken me a while to find a free week. We had a wonderful time – the house is just as it looks and is even better to stay in – plenty of room to find a bit of space – relax by the pool – cook…Andre arranged cabs and bikes and was there to meet us. Having bikes a must if you want to explore the rice fields – we cycled to Comporta – to the beach – and back – really great. Riding on the beach also a massive highlight if you ride – or even if you don’t.
