Cabanas No Rio | Comporta Portugal

On the Portuguese coast (about an hour south of Lisbon) lies a hidden piece of paradise...Comporta. This beautiful region is known for the magnificent white sandy beaches, the wine, fresh fish and the beautiful rice paddies. Cabanas no Rio is a project by architect Manuel Aires Mateus, the same guy behind the "Casas na Areia”. The romantic hideaway is ideal to relax, recharge batteries and simply enjoy nature. The two recovered old fisherman huts have in total only 28 square meters of space, but are equipped with all you need for a unique stay: kitchen, a bathroom, two armchairs to relax, a comfortable four-poster bed, a terrace overlooking the Sado river and private small pontoon over the water with a canoe that is provided for guests. There is also free wi-fi and a iPod dock. You can stay at this idyllic place with a breathtaking view for $270 p/night. [thanks Gonza]
