Quercus House boasts a rural and peaceful location near the village of Muda, in the Comporta area of Portugal, ideal for active families and perfect for large group stays.

With a distinct and eye-catching design, the home has been constructed using traditional and eco-friendly building techniques. Examples of the materials used surround the property, as Quercus House is delightfully nestled in between pine and oak trees that are spread across 8.5 hectares.

Inside Quercus House, subtle nods to the quiet Portuguese beauty spot of Comporta can be found throughout the home. Neutral decor gives the house a fresh and welcoming feel, with the use of natural textures blending Quercus House seamlessly with its surroundings.

The home sleeps up to eight guests across five bedrooms and has six bathrooms too. Every room and bedroom opens out onto the gorgeous garden, allowing the Comporta sunshine to flood in and dance across the furniture. This design choice also allows a fresh breeze to cool the house during the hot weather - another example of the eco element of the home.

A high ceiling living room with plenty of comfy seats offers the perfect place to relax and unwind during your Portuguese villa holiday. A considered colour scheme of neutral tones is complemented by wicker furnishings and splashes of bright colour with the intriguing art. Enjoy views out to the charming meadow garden, inviting the outdoors in.

Further entertainment can be found in the games room, where guests will come across a home cinema with satellite TV, Bluetooth sound system, and games console, that kids (and adults too!) will love.

Alternatively, take advantage of the great outdoors that is right on your doorstep and make use of the bikes that come with Quercus House. Picturesque cycling routes can be found just a stone's throw away from the home.

There are also yoga mats - unwind with some gentle exercise between the lush cork and pine trees that surround Quercus House. Feeling competitive? Challenge your friends or family to a game of table football too.

Of course, you’ll probably be spending most of your holiday in the water - the swimming pool at Quercus House is undeniably inviting, especially on a warm day, and is lined with sunbeds to laze the day away. Enjoy your meals in the stylish covered terrace, which becomes floodlit at night for your comfort and convenience. A great place to take part in some serene star gazing.

Despite being just a 1 hour and 15-minute drive from the capital of Lisbon, Comporta is a hidden gem in the Alentejo region that combines the lure of the coast with countryside living. While many simply embark on a road trip to the village when staying in Lisbon or one of the nearby resort towns, over the years, Comporta has grown in popularity with holidaymakers looking to stay exclusively in the area. The village invites visitors to step away from the bustle of city life, and embrace a more relaxed atmosphere.

This secret paradise has gained attention from celebrities, seeking an uninterrupted escape and peaceful holiday. Comporta is uniquely located between rice paddies and the Atlantic Ocean. The white-sand beaches and fishing cabins are iconic to this area of Portugal, prompting a slow and tranquil pace of life.

Make no mistake though - despite the absence of hoards of tourists and thumping nightclubs, there is still so much to see and do in Comporta and the surrounding area.

The epic waves make surfing by the vast beaches a popular activity, while restaurants and cafes offer an authentic taste of Portuguese cuisine. Foodies won’t want to leave without sampling the black pig meat, an Alentejo speciality that is used in many of the local dishes.

The land is also rich in wine and olive production thanks to the nearby Alqueva dam. Spend some time visiting the numerous vineyards surrounding Comporta, and pick up a souvenir or two.

Of course, the rice paddies neighbouring Comporta make the grain a local delicacy. When paired with fresh seafood plucked from the Atlantic coast, you have a range of mouthwatering meals to try.

Continue to look to the seas and you may even catch sight of dolphins, creatures well-known for gracing the area with their elegant beauty. Explore the Sado estuary in a catamaran for a greater chance of spotting them, alongside other marine life.

You can also explore the pine forests or do a spot of shopping in the local boutiques in the village, with many products made from Comporta’s famed cork oak.

Beyond Comporta, the capital city of Lisbon is easily reachable via car or train and a highly recommended day trip. Just 20 minutes drive south of Comporta is the charming town of Melides, home to picturesque blue-painted houses, a covered market, and the breathtaking Melides Lagoon. Neighbouring Comporta, and again just a 10-15 minute drive, is Troia, an area that boasts one of the best golf courses in Europe and a marina that is perfect for windsurfing and sailing.

Comporta is surrounded by rice paddies, the ocean, sand dunes and pine forests. It's a unique place where you can connect with nature and live in the moment. Comporta has a rhythm and an ambience that are all it's own. This wild and unspoilt part of Portugal attracts an in-the-know international crowd, including renowned artists, designers, and A-listers.

Comporta has a remarkable diversity of natural systems with long stretches of beach, windswept dunes, scenic pine forests, salt marshes and rice paddies which become a vibrant green in June. The region is also characterized by rice fields and its main attraction, the Comporta beach: 20 kilometres of uninterrupted white sand, a beach lover’s paradise.

As with the rest of Portugal, you can expect sun-blessed weather year-round in Comporta. The best months of the year to visit Comporta for long beach stays are from June to September, while the spring and autumn months are still suitable for picnics or day trips.


The Lisbon Coast is a sensational stretch of golden beaches, wave-lashed cliffs and vibrant seaside towns – but there's more to the Atlantic coastline than that. Delve beneath the surface to discover hidden coves, family-owned seafood restaurants and pristine natural parks.

The coast around Lisbon provides an easy, breezy escape from the capital, whose proximity has made it the stomping ground of kings for the last 1,000 years. In summer, Lisboistas stream into elegant Comporta and Cascais to escape the heat of the city; year-round, surfers hang loose on the coast, waiting for the rollers to crash down on the sand.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas on Lisbon Coast, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Quercus House is great for a child-friendly family holiday, complete with ample outdoor space and well-equipped games room that will keep them more than happy and entertained.

Older kids are sure to make use of the pool and sun-deck areas - the only problem you’ll have is getting them to come out of the water!

The gorgeous beaches near to Muda and in the Comporta are another great reason to holiday at Quercus House. Enjoy a quick and easy family day out in these stunning and quiet locations, before returning home to the peaceful lure of Quercus House.

The Alentejo region is a great place to holiday with children, and families with kids will love the huge amount of activities on offer in the Comporta area.

Mostly designed to take advantage of the unique nature of Comporta, your kids will witness the joy of the outdoors in unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Horse-riding is a popular activity in Comporta, with several companies providing the experience. Climb aboard your new four-hooved friend and explore the exceptional landscape and exquisite views. Your guide will tailor your trail depending on your interests, taking you through the rice paddies and pine forests before reaching the paradise-like beach.

As well as horses, some companies also offer canoe tours and bike rentals. The cycle tires are prepared for the thick sand of the region, meaning your family can easily enjoy more of the Troian Peninsula.

Alternatively, there’s also the chance to kayak up the Vala Real, the main water supply channel to the rice fields, in an exciting group tour. Your kids will have great fun noticing the diversity of the wildlife along the river banks.

If your children have never surfed before, the gentle waves make Comporta a fantastic place to try it. Many surf schools operate in the area, offering classes for beginners too.

It wouldn’t be a visit to Comporta without a visit to the Museo do Arroz (the Rice Museum), which gives a detailed look at the history of the food in the region. Finish your day with lunch in the adjoining cafe - a rice dish, of course!

Pack a picnic and enjoy a family beach day on one of the nearby Blue Flag awarded beaches. Pego and Carvalhal are also a short drive away, the former being recognised as one of the best beaches in the world thanks to its secluded sand dunes. The Carvalhal sea is also calm and peaceful, with no buildings around. Here, your kids can truly let loose and run free.
