We are Rob Derks and Marga van Schendel. In August 2007 we moved to the Algarve together. In the Netherlands we enjoyed living in Amsterdam where we ran a bed & breakfast on a beautiful houseboat.

Rob then worked in construction, among other things, and he continued that work in the Algarve. Marga was a communication trainer and teacher in various business and service professions.

Since the moment we emigrated, we still fully enjoy the Algarve, the friendly people and life with the guests on our quinta. Hospitality is of paramount importance to us, but we also respect everyone’s privacy. Our guests have all the space and freedom on the estate and we are nearby if you need us. If there is anything we can support you with, we will of course be happy to do so. We also live at Quinta Corcunda with our sweet boxer Tess. Tess is a calm people dog but does not run loose on the estate.
