In an effort to find some sunshine this summer, one half of the Pepper & Ink team enjoyed a mini escape to Lisbon last weekend. Such a great city, amazing food, friendly throughout and wall to wall blue skies which was a definite boost to morale. During our stay, we made a beeline to visit Comporta on the coast which is about an hour south of Lisbon - its been on our hit list for a while and it didn't disappoint. What a gem and we could not rate it high enough - a mini fix of retail in Comporta itself, great beach cafes on the coast and amazing scenery with rice fields, sand dunes and the Atlantic all in the mix.
On our return, we dropped into Quinta da Comporta which is about 10kms further down the coast. WOW ! An instant interiors fix - stunning design overlooking the rice fields and minutes from the beach - counting down the days till we return.
Definitely one to recommend for a reboot - serenely calm, inspiring & beautifully put together. See you in Portugal !
