Casa Vanguarda

8 guests · 5 bedrooms · 4 bathrooms
This crisp, contemporary villa is located in one of Portugal’s great understated beauty spots. Striking vertical space, a refined color scheme and stylish decor runs throughout the home. Recline in style in the high-ceilinged living room, walk the wild meadow garden, or kick back in the stylishly covered terrace, with white sand beaches, fine restaurants and a renowned nature reserve all nearby.
Kick off your morning with a dip in the pool, before emerging to relax on the softly-cushioned sunbeds that dot the extensive wooden deck. Towering hardwoods rise above the shaded alfresco table - an ideal location for enjoying views over the wooded hinterland that leads to the nearby Prigo Beach. Post-modern touches add real character to an airy, less-is-more interior, with polished lamps, stark visual art and sculpted metal chairs never compromising comfort for aesthetics. Wall-length windows in simplistic but softly-welcoming bedrooms allows sunlight to shift along the floor’s length, while the villa’s bathroom’s convey a peaceful, monastic quality, with pillar-like basins rising from the carved floor.
Casa Vanguarda is ideally placed for those looking to taste the delights of coastal Portugal without the associated crowds. One of the country’s finest beaches stretches for kilometres in each direction, with the close by Sado river’s estuary attracting flocks of wild flamingos. Picnicking, hiking and biking are all popular options around the local town of Comporta, with an afternoon of horseback riding perfected by opening a bottle of Setubal wine as an Atlantic sunset begins across the western sea.
