A few miles from the Spanish border, on Portugal’s southern coast, where the Atlantic edges ever closer to the Mediterranean, is the municipality of Castro Marim. It’s here that a writer/farmer and his wife have turned a working family farm (still growing olives, quince, oranges and figs) into Companhia das Culturas, a seven-room escape which is, in terms of scale, more bed and breakfast than hotel.
A charming homeyness pervades, with a design so subtle that it hardly feels designed at all. Pared-down spaces in whitewashed wood exude a certain rustic calm, and while you’ll find none of the extravagances of a luxury hotel, it’s hard to argue with the simple comforts of these thoughtful rooms (not to mention the pool).
The old olive mill is now something of a social nexus, a library lounge with an honor bar, and the breakfast is a particular treat, accompanied by fresh fruits and jams from the hotel’s organic farm. You’re not far from the town, or from the beach, more Mediterranean than Atlantic in aspect (read: not so cold), but en suite, without a television, life here is as quiet as you could possibly want it to be.
Please note: Companhia das Culturas requires a 2-night minimum stay.
