Beaches with crystal clear waters and soft sand. A rocky landscape full of vegetation. Aroma of the Atlantic and lifestyle slow. Welcome to Porto Covo, a town in Alentejo where you can disconnect from your daily problems and connect with nature. In this heavenly place, we discover the rural hotel O Lugar, designed by the Portuguese studio Arkstudio. "The starting point of the project was the characteristics of the environment and its location," the interior designers explain and add "the main idea was to create a space with a minimal character, associated with the beauty and tranquility of the landscape."
They achieved (by far) their objective by using natural and local materials, such as wood and fibers, and handicrafts typical of the region that they combined with decorative pieces from different countries, "to create an eclectic, quiet and pluralistic space," they affirm. The result is a refuge as Portuguese as universal in which peace is breathed and where we are invited to slow down, to enjoy the dolce far niente and to embrace the movement slow without looking back.
