THE VENUE

 Our venue is located in the little seaside village of Brejos da Carregueira de Baixo within Herdade da Comporta, an area that used to belong to the Espirito Santo Portuguese banking dynasty, who protected this land for many years promoting environmental conservation in harmony with sustainable economic growth in the Alentejo Coastline. This private luxury and stylish accommodation with a beautiful heated swimming pool has 7 bedrooms and endless downtime areas to enjoy along nature in peace.

The owner, Prince Louis Albert de Broglie, has kept the inherent Alentejo seaside construction style when renovating the property adding exquisite touches to the decor with the help of late interior designer Vera Iachia and Rita Andringa, works of art and fabrics from his travels, alongside his inventive and conservational side with original pieces that arrived adrift to the close by shores and reconverted pallets to beds and bedside tables. On the outside, he has incorporated three Timor wooden houses on stilts to inject a fantastic touch of charm to his own little village on the sand dunes making it a unique abode with a very special energy.

The villa has many outdoor patio spaces to relax and enjoy the cool and beautiful views at lunch and dinner. It boasts a heated infiniti pool finished with polished concrete which gives that dark emerald colour to the water and it has some teak furniture to chill by it. The property is in a gated estate which is surrounded by sand dunes beautiful and fragrant pine trees, lavender and fruit trees which make of it an idyllic scenario to unwind, see life pass and enjoy every breath you take.
