Sometimes compared to the Saint-Tropez of Brigitte Bardot in the 1950s, Comporta, Portugal, with its relaxed pace and artistic community, is an ideal destination beyond the beaten path. This famed fishing village boasts peaceful swaths of beach, a patchwork of rice paddies, a thriving wild ecosystem, and an array of rustic cabanas, all reflecting the carefree lifestyle that has become Comporta’s hallmark. A snapshot of the destination’s simple beauty, this book is filled with the region’s characteristic cobalt blue, captured from the sky and sea to the walls, shutters, and design features that adorn its iconic homes.
