It comes to a point in the year – sometime around now – that I start getting excited about the summer ahead of us and dream of long lazy beach days. This dreamy cottage in the Portuguese Alentejo would be the perfect escape from the frenetic lifestyle most of us live. Belonging to designer and creator of recycled furniture Pequenina Rodrigues, the beach retreat fits seamlessly and respectfully alongside the natural beauty of its surroundings. Built amongst the sand dunes, the recycled wood and straw house is divided into four traditional fisherman’s cottages. The style and structure reflects the owner’s love for the natural beauty of the surroundings. With its hippy chic ambience, this spot would be ideal for a languid summer of dolce far niente!
