Travel Insider: Comporta

Most of the photography for the Spring 2011 collection was shot in the magical beach resort of Comporta. Located just an hour south of Lisbon on the Atlantic coast, this summer holiday favorite of Portuguese families is set between sand dunes, pine trees, and rice fields and is mostly made up of a protected nature preserve .

My family adores Comporta and we make a point of spending time there every summer. Many families stay with friends or rent houses, but a beautiful hotel is the CasasNaAreia. The hotel melds the classic thatched fishermen’s cottages that the region is known for with cutting edge design.

Interested in seeing more? For a beautiful slide show, take a peek at the New York Times story on the region.
