“A secluded beach estate with heated pool, offering a true escape and a serene setting for families or friends, located just a few minutes away from Praia dos Brejos.”

With a sunny disposition and great outdoor areas to chill, this supper spacious luxury beach estate is the perfect place to enjoy some Comporta bliss. In a serene rural setting, you will be woken up by songbirds and can hear the ocean nearby. You can also walk or cycle to the off-grid and pristine Brejos beach, across paddy fields and wild dunes. At the end of the day, it’s time for a sundowner on the roof top terrace!

Casa do Elefante has been built for relaxed living and features 5 en-suite bedrooms spread over several modern thatched cabanas, totalling 500 sq metres of living space. The cabanas have exposed wood and bamboo ceilings, polished cement floors and large panoramic windows, and each opens onto its own private terrace. The interiors are decorated in a soft and warm palette of colours with a beach chic vibe. There are flood-lit wooden pathways connecting all the cabanas within fenced-in grounds totalling 7,500 square metres.  

With so much space on offer, there are plenty of options for large families or friends to be together, or for escaping to read a book and relax if you need some private time. At the centre of the property, the long lap heated swimming pool and gazebo are surrounded by a decked terrace. You can enjoy a game of table-tennis under the shade of pine trees or play beach volley, whilst a yoga cabin and an outdoor deck provide a special spot for some mindfulness practice. Bicycles and beach equipment are also provided.

The Comporta region’s selling point is its simplicity despite some high-profile A-list visitors. It sits within the Sado River Nature Reserve and you can do some dolphin watching, cycle between rice paddies and pine forests, learn to surf, or go horse riding on the dunes. The local fishermen still mend their nets on the beach and storks make their nests in just about every pole in the area. There is no in-your-face nightlife, and it has an unpretentious vibe with just a hand full of trendy restaurants and hippy-chic shops. Comporta, Carvalhal, and Pego beaches each host cool beach bars/restaurants.

Lucky guests at Casa do Elefante will enjoy private access to Praia de Brejos – practically only known to the locals and with no restaurant or bar, this pristine stretch of sand remains rarely visited all year. It enjoys views towards the “Serra da Arrabida” nature reserve in the distance and is perfect for family picnics.
