Comporta & Tróia

Some of our Villas & Apartments...

In the beginning of the 20th century, this region was the most important center of Portugal's fishing industry, particularly sardines

Setúbal region (Comporta and Tróia) was the birthplace of outstanding Portuguese cultural figures, particularly Bocage (a 19th century poet, famous for the ironic tone and social criticism that he put into everything he wrote), and Luísa Todi (an important lyric singer).

Around Setúbal there are nature conservation areas, in particular the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, where it is still possible to watch dolphins in the wild, and the Arrábida Natural Park, which has unique characteristics and contains species that can only be found in areas near the Mediterranean.

On the other side of the River Sado there is the Tróia peninsula with about 18Kms of beaches and a golf course.

Located on the southern tip of the Tróia Peninsula, the huge sandy extent of Comporta Beach is a regular summer favourite. Forming part of the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, Comporta Beach has been well preserved with the original dune vegetation surviving along with the adjoining pine forest.

The castle is the most iconic landmark located in the city of Alcácer do Sal. This imposing fortress sitting atop one of the city’s highest hills provides visitors with breath-taking views of the city and the surrounding countryside.
