Casas Brancas
The Alentejo coast and west Algarve region, with a major area occupied by the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina (Natural Park), is one of the biggest treasures of ecologic and rural tourism in Portugal, more and more visited by national as well as by informed foreign tourists.

Casas Brancas grew out of the need to organise, in an integrated and selected offer, the good examples of tourist initiatives in the region. Representing the several classes of existing offer, this network integrates very diverse accommodation, restaurants, and outdoor activities governed by demanding quality criteria and assuring the clients’ total respect and satisfaction while promoting the tourist quality in the region.

The region’s sustainable development is the ultimate goal of this non-profit association, which identified quality tourism as a way to combine the protection of local identity, culture, landscape and ecologic balance with the development and renovation of the region and its population.
