A beachside getaway in Portugal

Is it the end of the weekend already? Another working week stretches before us and I'm daydreaming of a beachside getaway to help me make it through until next weekend. Let's escape to Alentejo Beach House, a contemporary villa rental near Comporta on the beautiful Alentejo coast in Portugal. Three independent bungalows with beautiful ocean views and a communal main house for dining and socialising. Oh the sunsets and the sand and the water and the rolling dunes! Oh the fabulous Portuguese food and wine! Oh is it really a new working week already! Alentejo Beach House another hand-picked piece of paradise via Welcome Beyond.

Beachy pink

Think beach house think white painted walls and accents of blue and sea green. Perhaps that should be pink or melon or citrus green. This modern family holiday home takes a fresh look at the beach theme with its hot fruit flavoured colour hits. Light, bright and stylishly relaxed. Just what you want for your vacation retreat by the sea. Cabana com Arte in Comporta, Portugal by Lisbon-based architectural and interior design studio Sa Aranha & Vasconcelos.

Margarida's outdoor oasis

You may recall this post of Margarida's weekend home in Portugal back in 2013. Well it seems Margarida has been hard at work on the exterior of her home, despite 45°C heat (which would explain the expanse of brown in the photo above). I detest winter, so this time of the year really gets me down as it is the end of warm weather for a very long time....which is why I really needed to feature this lovely outdoor space. Anything to transport me to warmer climates...

A glam apartment in Lisbon

This apartment is HOT! It is located in Lisbon and was designed by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho. Cristina created an elegant, glamorous and feminine space that is simply stunning, by mixing modern, mid-century vintage and classic pieces. It is eclectic but it all works so well together. My favourite touch is the fancy crystal chandelier in the modern black kitchen. Sexy!
