The selection and preparation of the set is a very important step in the production of the filmmaking process. The Algarve (Portugal) is the perfect place for any audiovisual project, with scenarios full of natural beauty and cultural heritage.

Located in the western part of Europe, in the south of Portugal, the Algarve has a coastline with about 150 km, which is very diversified in terms of landscape and characterized by the wide beaches, cliffs, caves and beautiful marshland areas.

The sea is one of the greatest richness of Algarve, but the blue and gold colors of the coast are also painted with the green of the barrocal and mountains region. The hills occupy 50% of the territory and offer a variety of landscapes to discover, with unique species of flora and fauna that is only possible to observe in this region.

In contrast to the tranquility of nature, the Algarve has a cosmopolitan side and the cities, with their daily adrenaline or night lights, are synonymous of good food, constant fun and a variety of events.

Apart from the diversity of scenarios, the region is also known for its mild climate throughout the year, with a large number of hours of sunshine (over 3000 hours of sunshine a year!) and a low average rainfall, which facilitates the process of filmmaking and increases the productivity.
