Because Now There’s Even More to Love
There’s charming Lisbon, the wineries of the Douro Valley, the seaside towns of the Algarve. And now the Alentejo, where stylish Lisbonites go on private home holidays, has three magnetic new places to stay: São Lourenço do Barrocal, a centuries-old estate that is now a dreamy boutique resort (restored by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Eduardo Souto de Moura); on the coast, the design-driven Sublime Comporta, its villas shaped like the area’s traditional rice storage buildings; and the just opened Quinta da Comporta, set between dunes and rice fields. Think the solitude and natural beauty of the Hamptons before they became hot.
TO BOOK: Virginia Irurita, who devises great itineraries throughout the Iberian peninsula. VIRGINIA@MADEFORSPAINANDPORTUGAL.COM.
