What makes Sublime Comporta a great holiday venue?
Justin says this is one of the most beautiful places he's visited in the 15 years he's been visiting Portugal and France. "Genuinely inspiring and unique. I'm already planning a Lisbon city break + a few nights at Sublime for my wife and I!"
We think you'll love these things too...
We knew that Sublime Comporta was going to be a special addition to our collection from the moment we stepped into reception - we couldn't stop smiling during our whole visit!
Modern architecture combined with a forward-thinking respect for the environment and a purposeful simplicity makes Sublime an unassumingly luxurious retreat. Here, authenticity is key.
The 17 acre estate with its spa & pool area and innovative restaurant serving fresh local produce combined with the attentive service you would expect from a top hotel, make this a real oasis of calm, with a modern-chic feel.
You could easily spend your whole holiday on the estate, or venture out to explore the unspioiled beauty of the Costa Azul and some of Portugal's most stunning beaches.
Couples wanting a truly special holiday - the Comporta coastline offers an element of adventure as it is still relatively undiscovered and pulls in some good surf.
Children and teenagers are very welcome at the venue, and it would suit families wanting some adult relaxation combined with beach adventures as a family.
Anything to watch out for?
A car is essential for discovering the area (but for short breaks you'll just want to put your feet up!).
Swimming pools in Portugal aren't guarded/protected.
Kitchens are equipped for light self-catering.
Comporta lies 15 km north and this town is the gateway to the amazing Troia peninsula. The area is very natural and authentic whilst its beaches are pristine - white sands and crystal clear blue sea. Half-an-hour's drive is the pretty river town of Alcacar do Sal with its lovely side streets and tavernas. The area will appeal to those who want a distinctive and authentic Portugal holiday with a few activities thrown-in.
Natural-chic 'cabana' style villa suites with private pools offering luxury accommodation
The small number of hotel suites and villas available reflects the resort's 'low-key' ethos and ambience. The emphasis is on peace, privacy and 'relaxed luxury'.
A contemporary take on the region's traditional cabana houses, the 2 bedroom villas have been very cleverly conceived to accommodate a family or couples equally comfortably.
The single-level 'pod' design, with an ensuite bedroom on each wing of the villa and the living/dining room and open-plan kitchen in the centre really is very innovative. Floor to ceiling doors flood the rooms with natural light.
The villas are designed and finished in the same style as the resort of the estate - with plenty of brushed concrete, rustic wood and large glass windows - nestled among the umbrella pines and cork trees.
The villas fit beautifully with the natural surroundings and this makes for a really natural, authentic & luxurious experience.
Villas can be rented all year round - winter breaks here are a real treat with cosy fireplaces, rustic dishes served in the restaurant and invigorating walks on the beach!
2 bedroom villas offer 160m2 accommodation featuring:
NB The kitchens are equipped for guests who are happy to do occasional, light self-catering but who prefer to eat out on their holiday. As well as the excellent on-site restaurant there are other choices in the surrounding villages.
The 3 & 5 bedrooms villas are new for 2018. The architecture, design and equipment is the same as 2 bed cabana villas. Every bedroom is en-suite.

Each villa enjoys a private pool as well as access to the shared pools (outdoor, indoor spa and children's)

Towels and sun loungers are provided
It's very easy to wind-down completely at Sublime Comporta and fall into the rhythmn of the relaxing, natural surroundings! But if you fancy something energetic, the resort has a tennis court (booking required).
For those, lime me, who simply must keep exercising whilst on holiday the resort also features a fitness room.
You could very easily spend your holiday enjoying the fantastic facilities available on the 17 acre Sublime Comporta estate:
This is a very sparsely populated, authentic and beautiful area of Portugal. The coastline offers pristine beaches and Atlantic ocean and there are some pretty towns to explore too. The natural landscape of the Sado Estuary nature reserve, flanked by sand dunes and pine forest, provide a sense of relaxing calm.

Our Personal Highlights:
The village itself hasn’t a lot to offer the visiting tourist but that’s not the point. It is the stunning beaches that makes Comporta an up-and-coming holiday destination. It’s off-the-beaten-track too which means there are no crowds – this is most definitely Alternative Portugal.
There’s a huge stretch of unspoiled beach from the tip of Troia all the way to south to Sines. You’ll find a good cluster of beaches around Comporta – Pego, Carvalhal, Torre and Comporta. A surf school is based at Carvalhal.
Alcacer do Sal
A very pretty and relaxing white-washed town on the River Sado. Stroll the streets and you’ll find handicraft shops and excellent tavernas.
Comporta village is the gateway to this beautiful strip of coastline with its glorious beaches on both flanks (the sheltered side is good for young families whilst the Atlantic side picks up some decent waves).
Arriving at the tip of the Troia peninsula there is more touristic development – there is a ferry crossing from Setubal which facilitates an easy passage of weekenders from the city and Lisbon too. Some of the developments are not easy on the eye but the beaches and views are stunning. The marina is the place to catch one of the many boat-trips – exploring the coastline by sea is a must.
A tranquil area abundant in birdlife along the many creeks and mudflats. Boat-trips are available and a very relaxing way to experience the nature reserve.
