Meet the team

PADDY – OWNER

Born in Dublin, Ireland.

Spent most of his life travelling the world surfing, snowboarding and chefing.

In 2015, Paddy explored Europe in his Camper and ended up in Aljezur. After spending the summer here, decided to swap his usual 25 hour days in the kitchen, and take up 26 hour days in the B&B Business…and so in 2016, Arrifana Pines was born….

MR BEN – SECURITY

After being rescued from the side of the road a day or two old, Mr. Ben has a lot of love to give. Paid in cuddles, we ask that you chip in.

Mr. Ben assists Paddy to ensure your stay at Arrifana Pines is an enjoyable one. Offering advice about the surrounding area and any activity you may want to do, such as surfing, hiking, sampling delicious traditional Portuguese food and drink.

THE CHICKENS

The chickens are probably the hardest workers around here. They never stop, digging, scratching, eating, not a bad life really. We have many more chickens in need of names and are open to suggestions.
