The Companhia das Culturas is placed in the São Bartolomeu village, which is located in the barrocal sub region, dips into the tidal creeks and salt marshes of the Guadiana river, and stays at 1,5km from the foothills of the Sierra. Praia Verde, also 1,5km away, is the center of Monte Gordo bay, a vastness of temperate beaches which are hemmed with pinewoods and dunes. In Cacela Velha, 5km to the west, begins Ria Formosa. 

The biodiversity of all the ecosystems within a 5km radius - Barrocal, Sierra, Marshes, Pinewoods, and Dunes - urges to be explored.

For the more or less curious, we created 4 paths that can be enjoyed whether you are a fan of hiking or not:  to the Praia Verde beach; to the Castro Marim Natural reserve; to the Guadiana river; to the Sierra.

Any of these paths is available on the GPS systems that we have at the disposal of our guests.
