Architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto's Striking Modernist Villa in Comporta

Portuguese architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto's driving philosophy is "less is more," and this holiday home for rent in Portugal is a striking example of how much more it can be. 

Architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto's Striking Modernist Villa in Comporta

Portuguese architect Pedro Ferreira Pinto's driving philosophy is "less is more," and this holiday home for rent in Portugal is a striking example of how much more it can be. Standing in bold contrast to the wild countryside, the house invites the outdoors in, with soaring, luminous interiors and panoramic views.

Composed of pure, clean lines, Pinto has limited the palette of materials to concrete and glass, punctuated with clever sliding wood panels on the facade that transforms the structure inside and out, allowing for privacy without obscuring the views.

Set in striking contrast to the pine forest and surrounding countryside, this holiday home in Portugal is nestled within over 50 acres of wilderness and blissful privacy. Its bold architecture designed by Pedro Ferreira Pinto is a standout among the pines, with simple, well-defined lines and airy open interiors that soar two stories high. 

Lined with massive floor to ceiling windows on all sides, the interiors are flooded with natural light with wooden shutters that slide away, or cover up. The ground floor living area is settled around a central fireplace and includes a dining area and chef's kitchen. Connected by a suspended stairway, the upper floor houses the second sitting room. The bedrooms are attached through a breezeway on the ground floor, with four double bedrooms and a children's bunk room. Spare, stylish, and unabashedly modern, the spaces are designed for relaxing holidays inside and out.

There are lots of play zones, as well as outdoor terraces and living spaces around the pool. With a volleyball court, a football pitch, and hammocks strung beneath the trees, there are plenty of ways for enjoying the beautiful Alentejo countryside.

 

AROUND

Just an hour's drive south of Lisbon, the Comporta area of the Alentejo is ideally positioned to enjoy both the countryside and the Atlantic coastal areas. Praia do Pego and Praia Carvalhal are among Portugal’s most beautiful beaches and are within a twenty minute drive. 

The lovely former fishing village of Comporta on the Troia Peninsula is fast becoming a popular spot for the stylish crowd but thankfully retains it's laid back vibe and windswept natural beauty--for now. 

A little further south the rural Serra do Grandola valley gives way to the traditional villages of Grandola and Melides and it's five mile long stretch of sand that separates the the sea and the lagoon. 

Santiago do Cacem the ancient Moorish and later colonial community with quaint cobblestone streets and fortifications is just a few minutes further south along with the  stunning ancient Roman settlement of Miróbriga. Setubal and the Sado estuary region is a short drive north.
