MR BENN – SECURITY

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

Mr. Benn 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.

CRACKERS – JOB DESCRIPTION: UNKNOWN

 Our latest member of the crew is also a rescue. Crackers is supervising the dog walks and practices her puss in boots looks on every costumer. She purrs temptingly around you with her cristal blue eyes, so you can’t leave without petting her at least once. So beware of her! She knows how to play!

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.

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….
