UNVEILING HER STYLISH PORTUGUESE HIDEAWAY FILIPA DE ABREU THE FASHION AND INTERIORS EXPERT IN HARMONY AT HOME
Along a vast white beach lapped by the Atlantic Ocean, amid sand dunes, pine forests and rice paddies, lies Comporta, a picturesque fishing village turned exclusive Portuguese paradise. Here, a host of big names from the creative fields – united by a passion for nature at its purest – have built holiday homes that are in perfect harmony with their surroundings.
This is where fashion and interiors consultant Filipa de Abreu and her husband Antonio Ribeiro da Cunha come to spend quality time with their blended family of five.
Antonio, the director of a property investment firm, acquired their hideaway, Casa Branca, eight years ago, before meeting Filipa – but she has added her own unique touches, she explains, as she teams up with her 18-year-old daughter.

Rock behemoths including the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, U2 and Ed Sheeran remain in the multimillionaire domain, with only Sir Paul McCartney breaking through the barrier with a net worth of $1.2bn (£9.6m).
