Vila Monte Farmhouse
Content creation for Vila Monte Farmhouse in Algarve, Portugal.
The southeastern, still rather poor part of the Algarve east of Faro is characterized by beautiful nature, white sandy beaches, small islands and an authentic rural population.
The premium hotel Vila Monte Farmhouse, with its associated top restaurant, A Terra, aims to support this very population and bring travelers from all over the world closer to the region's traditions, food and crafts. In addition to using local materials and ingredients, the hotel offers visitors a wide choice of field trips and workshops with local handicrafts artists. Our task was to generate photographic material in order to be able to offer guests these experiences even better and to bring them closer to the locals.
Using a photo-documentary approach, we tried to capture as detailed as possible the hotel, restaurant and friendly staff of Vila Monte Farmhouse. Furthermore, the hotel's Experience Management sent us on various excursions, such as a boat trip to a nearby fishing island or a food guided city tour through the beautiful town of Faro in cooperation with Eating Algarve Tours. During a pottery workshop with a resident pottery master we documented the pottery process and learned more about the traditions and historical influences of the region on the clay craftsmanship.
