5 Bedrooms · Sleeps 10
Villa Almera is a beautiful luxury house on Praia do Pego beach, the most exclusive area of Comporta.
Villa Almera is literally built on the sand! 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 Arrábida Mountain Range National Park) to the East and the South.
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, Villa Almera is perfect to enjoy in summer or in the colder season. In the autumn and winter, the heated floors are perfect to walk barefoot inside the house while watching the nature outside.
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 Almera is more than a house, it's an experience. As the central point of the entire house, the main courtyard is ideal for lunching/dining outside or reading/relaxing after a day at the beach.
The masterpiece is outside. Overlooking the sea and the distant Arrábida National Park, the chic private heated (on request) swimming pool (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.
The garden was developed to be a natural extension of the surrounding habitat. Through a careful selection of native species, such as pine trees, shrubs and other local flora, the garden was designed like a sand dune, aiming to mimic the organic landscape of the beautiful nearby beaches.
