Welcome to Duas Quintas, Our Algarve B&B Near Silves

Coronavirus Response

Small, secluded and inland from the crowded coast, Duas Quintas is the perfect base for your trip to Portugal during Covid-19. We take your safety extremely seriously and, besides obtaining the Clean & Safe seal from Turismo de Portugal, we have put in a number of new measures to ensure your holiday is not only safe but also enjoyable.

All of our rooms have their own private entrances and, being in the countryside, we are lucky that there is plenty of space for everyone to comfortably relax and enjoy themselves. We’ve also replaced the communal breakfast buffet with private breakfast baskets which are made up for you each morning.

Duas Quintas is the perfect place to get away from it all without being too far from anywhere. Our rural Algarve B&B is 6 km from the beautiful historic city of Silves. There are lots of amazing beaches less than 20 kilometres from here. Faro airport is a one hour drive from here.

We are right in the centre of the Algarve, so you can explore east or west, north or south without having to drive very far. This is also a great walking area. We can help you plan some wonderful hikes.

But the best reason to come to Duas Quintas is Duas Quintas itself.

About Duas Quintas

Surrounded by orange trees, this old farmhouse has been lovingly restored, maintaining its charm to provide a comfortable, relaxing environment. We have a large 12 x 6m swimming pool, stone barbeque and over 15 acres of grounds. So there is lots of space for you to find your perfect spot.

Each room is different but all have high wooden ceilings, traditional stone walls and double glass doors. Nearer the house, there are the gardens with colourful flowers and shrubs.  Enjoy a shady spot under a tree to chat or read. As you wander further from the house, you will notice the abundance of nature -butterflies, birds and frogs and even rabbits.

We know how important it is, in the current climate, to feel safe and in control of the amount of contact you have with other people. Because each room has its own private entrance, you make the choice.

There are three double/twin rooms at the front of the house, opening onto the front gardens and lawn. At the back, there are 2 double/twin rooms, looking out onto a small lawn, orange trees and the Serra in the distance.

Our studio is also at the back of the house. This is a bigger unit with a kitchen and dining area-ideal for a small family (max 3 people) or couples who like the possibility of eating in sometimes.

What a special place you have created. The perfect holiday location with perfect hosts. Many thanks for all the extra touches. Adrian, U.K.”

About Us

Let us introduce ourselves – Les from Somerset in England and Mary from Dublin, Ireland although most people around here refer to us as ´the Irish couple´. We run Duas Quintas with our cat Sid.

We discovered what is now Duas Quintas in April 2005. Uninhabited for many years, it was run-down and neglected but still charming. With the help of a wonderful local builder, we restored the old farmhouse and developed the gardens and surroundings, retaining many of the original features both inside and out.

In accordance with Portuguese law, we have a paper and an electronic complaints book.
