The nearest airport is Faro International Airport, which is 56 km from here. We advise Duas Quintas guests to rent a car during their stay. This will allow you to visit the wonderful beaches within a 20-25 minute drive, or explore the wild Atlantic coast to the west. Don’t forget to visit the Sierra de Monchique, to the north, and the pretty towns of Alte and Salir to the east. Due to its variety, the Algarve is the perfect place for a hiking vacation. There is a lot to see in the Algarve, and we would like to help you discover it.
Silves, 6 km from Duas Quintas, is an attractive city that dates back to pre-Roman times, full of history and character. Algarve still proudly displays its exuberant past in its cathedral and its magnificent red stone castle, one of the most spectacular castles in southern Portugal. Silves retains much of its ancient charm in the streets of the old ‘almedina’, which remain as they were in medieval times. It is a great place to stop for coffee or enjoy some of the small shops, with their traditional interiors and treasures from the past. There are also many great places to eat.
