This is great news for us as hosts. We realise that a holiday is a big investment–not just financially but also because it is such a precious , and often, all too short time, with family or friends. It’s wonderful for us to see friends meeting up here, and spending relaxed summer evenings barbecuing together. Or families wandering through the gardens, playing in the pool, visiting the ducks and hens or playing with Sasha, our Labrador. Often people return for a short break mid year, to recharge their batteries or grab a bit of Algarve sunshine, when the weather is gray in other parts of the world. It is important for us to know that we are playing our part in making sure that our guests have a great time at Duas Quintas.
Duas Quintas is an ideal spot for a summer or off season break. Most of our summer guests are sun lovers and divide their days between time spent in our pool and time spent visiting the many beautiful beaches that are within a short drive of Duas Quintas. Off season, our guests are often people interested in walking or exploring rural Algarve. We love to see people´s reaction to this almost undiscovered part of the Algarve and are amazed at the number of people who are exploring rural Algarve for the first time. Undoubtly Duas Quintas is particularly special in April, when the orange trees are in flower and the smell of the orange blossom fills the air. The new orange trees planted four years ago have given their first crop and it is wonderful to look through the windows and see these new trees stretch elegently into the distance.
Lots of different things factors contribute to making Duas Quintas a top B and B……our special location, the wonderful Algarve climate, the fact that as hosts we enjoy what we do, and especially our guests who play a vital role in maintaining the relaxed and friendly atmosphere is an integral part of Duas Quintas.
