Others say it is because of our large 12m x 6 m swimming pool. Surrounded by orange trees, the pool area is the perfect place to relax. Opposite is the table tennis table and the wonderful large barbeque where guests love to cook, especially in the evening as the sun goes down.
For others the gardens make Duas Quintas special. Near the house the gardens are pretty and cultivated. Further away the gardens are more natural, attracting birds and butterflies, plants and wild flowers. At the right time of the year you will see Hoopoes or Egrets, pick your own oranges and lemons or enjoy our delicious figs.[/tatsu_text][/tatsu_column][/tatsu_row][tatsu_row layout= “1/1”][tatsu_column layout= “1/1”][tatsu_text max_width= “” wrap_alignment= “center” animation_type= “fadeIn”]Everyone agrees about the atmosphere at Duas Quintas- peaceful, relaxing, soothing.

Beautiful location in the Algarve countryside, but close to the fort town of Silves. Comfortable amenities in the rooms, gorgeous and quiet pool, and delicious breakfasts all for amazingly good value.
