ASCENO TRAVELS: WELCOME TO COMPORTA

Sculptural concrete structures contrasting against the surrounding nature, frame the setting for our Resort & SS18 collections at Les Terrasses de Comporta

An hour south of Portugal's capital, Lisbon, and two hours west of the country's famous Algarve, situated at the edge of the Tróia peninsula lies what is being dubbed "the new Ibiza" - Comporta.  

A mixture of sprawling white sands and greenery occupy the landscape of this picturesque area, bringing the inspiration behind our Resort & SS18 collections into focus.

 

 

Despite sharing key similarities with its counterpart, Ibizia, such as paradisal weather and an expansive range of sights and activities, there is something truly unique about the location that drew our admiration. 

Comporta's resplendent natural beauty has for many decades, gone unchanged, and attracted ASCENO immediately due its rich flora and fauna. However, one of the key attractions was undoubtedly the unexplored depth - truly making the area a best kept secret.

 

 

As you get deeper into Comporta, there is one spot in particular that sums up the reason behind the area's growing popularity.

Bridging the gap between architecture and art, Les Terrasses de Comporta finds a balance between conservative design and subtle nuances. The passion for architecture shared by the designers manifests itself in the bold and angular details of the facilities. 

Four separate concrete buildings skirt the property, contrasting against the area's green surroundings, and the mood of the interior mirrors that of the exterior.  Furniture is splashed with vibrant colours or formed in natural materials such as straw or wood to accent the bungalows. However, the overall aesthetic is stripped back.

Aspects such as the clean lines of the buildings, textured brick walls and angular shapes contrasting against the pops of colour both in the natural landscape and throughout the property directly reference the collections. All coming together to make the location a clear choice.   

 


 

The true purpose of this clandestine retreat is to disconnect with the outside, and find inner calm and joy with those around you. To compliment its charm, the property is finished with a pointed infinity pool overlooking the surrounding mountain range. A great way to start the trip.
