The Swimming Pool
Located just a few seconds from your bedroom, and surrounded by hundreds of beautiful orange trees is our twelve meters long by six meters wide swimming pool. With a depth of between 1.1 and 2.2 metres and a length of 12m x 6m, it is large enough to have a proper swim, but also perfect just to relax and cool down in the heat of summer.
The area around the pool is paved and furnished with sun loungers and mattresses. It is an ideal spot for sunbathing and relaxing. At night, the pool has under water lighting for late bathing.
We have a table tennis table if you are feeling energetic and an honesty bar if you just want to unwind and enjoy these beautiful surroundings.
Once a thriving fruit farm, Duas Quintas has lots of orange trees as well as plum, lemon, olive and fig trees. The farm has recently been replanted by a local cooperative, and you are welcome to enjoy a stroll among the orange trees.
It is a bird lover’s paradise with storks, hoopoes, swallows and buzzards all around. Wildflowers abound in the springtime, and even in the heat of summer the valley remains green and refreshing.
Further from the house, the area is gradually being restored. Wander through the orange and lemon trees, enjoying the sights and smells of rural Portugal
