Comporta in Top 25 Places to Go in 2017
The anti-Algarve, an hour from Lisbon. The Algarve may be chockablock with tourists and grand hotels, but hippie-chic Comporta, a protected nature reserve and former fisherman’s village in the Alentejo region, is deliberately underdeveloped and teeming with creative European A-listers. This year its only major hotel — Sublime Comporta, with rustic rooms and suites scattered across forests of pine, cork and olive — opened a restaurant, Celeiro, inspired by the area’s old rice barns, along with 22 luxury villas. Nearby, Aman Resorts broke ground on a project that fell through, leaving locals buzzing about which big-name company will take up where they left off. Go before the branding happens. — BAZ DREISINGER
