About Us

When Simon Clayton quit his high flying job in Belgium, he and his wife Judy decided to make a big lifestyle change and move to the beautiful Algarve, where they had enjoyed many happy family holidays. Judy's creativity and passion for design led to the opening of their first store in Quinta do Lago in 2004. Based on the eclectic boutiques of Brussels and their worldwide travels, it brought a new level of retail experience to the Algarve. Now with a home in the hills above the coast, Simon and Judy enjoy the calm and serenity of rural life mixed with the buzz created by their stylish, unique and growing business.


Our philosophy is to seek out unusual home, lifestyle and fashion products from high quality designers and offer them to both visitors and home owners in the Algarve.       Based on the concept  " Outdoor Living " the brands we choose reflect life in a sunshine environment. Displaying exceptional outdoor furniture, designer resort fashion and refreshing scented products for home and body, our shops radiate the warmth of the Algarve sun and its endless blue skies. We often stock niche brands not found elsewhere in the Algarve and often in Portugal.

The Future

We are constantly searching for new and exciting products for Dunas Lifestyle. We enjoy travelling across Europe and further afield in order to find new products and to visit suppliers and manufactures in their own environments. With so much new technology available in Outdoor Furniture we believe it is important to understand our brands completely, and to see the complete collection is for us very important. So the future is one of discovery and learning so that we can pass this on to our customers.
