Comporta | The perfect blend of rugged and refined

“I did not know Comporta at all, recalls Perrin. But coming from the Landes region of southwest France, I fell madly in love with the rugged landscape here—the sun, the sand, the endless beach.”

“Seduced, the Perrins started looking for land. Within a few months they secured a nine-acre parcel bordering a pine forest that ultimately provided their place with its name: Quinta dos Pinheiros (“pine farm”). And they started to make plans. They didn’t want a mere house but rather, in the local vernacular, a compound of small buildings, each dedicated to a specific use (living room, kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, and so on).”
