What We Do

“A man is always a teller of stories and he tries to live his life as if he were recounting it”
Jean Paul Sartre

We transform fiction into reality. We help companies and professionals looking for film and photo shoot locations, venues and corporate hospitality in the Algarve find the best options for their requirements.

OUR REGION, OUR TEAM

Spy Manor productions is composed of a multi-cultural team with different nationalities, languages and professional experiences. We have chosen the Algarve as base because we love the region. We can share our local knowledge and experience in the region making the whole process a lot easier from beginning to end.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to elevate the image of Portugal as a location for luxurious experiences and encourage other companies, brands and high net worth individuals to invest in the region. We aim to raise the profile of the country with the support of our large network of contacts in the high-end automotive, film and media industries. An important part of our work is to also give back to people in need in this region, through charity events.
