About

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 dog, Sasha, a friendly black Labrador who is always available for a walk.

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.

Today Duas Quintas is not just our permanent home but the temporary home of our guests, many who return to us year after year. Our aim is to provide the environment in which you can discover the treasures of rural Portugal. We enjoy sharing our knowledge about local food, walks on the Algarve, or special places to visit. We know holidays are precious times of the year and we enjoy helping you to make the most of your time here.
