This exquisite property is in an enviable location with absolute peace and tranquillity, yet just a short drive to 2 towns. Two separate properties give the opportunity to run a successful tourism business or Yoga retreat and with almost 17 hectares of fertile land with access to dam water, the land is perfect for farming, agriculture or equestrian use.

Entering the property through a private drive and gateway you have the main house which is set on one level and consists of a lounge/dining room, kitchen with utility room, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (one en-suite) a laundry room (5th Bedroom) and a storage area (6th Bedroom). This house has a large, covered terrace running the length of the house giving splendid views to the lake and orchard.

150 meters away and totally private is the 2-story villa with pool.
Downstairs has a lounge/dining room, kitchen with utility room, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite) and ample terraces.
From a separate entrance upstairs is a carbon copy of the ground floor and has undergone refurbishments. This domicile has a lounge/dining room, kitchen with utility, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This villa boasts extraordinary views across the lake (dam) and has a large, elevated terrace, barbecue terrace, pool with sunbathing areas, boat docking, and a unique inside bar/party room with medronho oven (Alambique) perfect for the holiday quests.

Also on the land are numerous indigenous fruit trees and vegetation, an orchard and a large storage building for farm equipment.

These 2 properties are completely registered, and a pre-approval has been sought for an extension of construction which a new owner could then pursue for a full rural tourism licence if desired. Or this would make for a peaceful family home and guest house with AL licence. The options are limitless!
