The plot has a quiet lane running through it which gives easy access and a route directly to Monchique without having to use the main road. The main house plus an old animal shed/stable is at the side of the lane and another house sits in the land across the lane.

The main house faces inwards away from the lane. In front is a water tank and an old bread oven. The tank is fed from a mine much further up the hill. Above the house but not seen or heard is the main road from Monchique to São Marcos da Serra. The land extends beyond the road into a cork forest. The cork could be a source of income from time to time.

In principle the two houses could be built up to a total of 300m² for residential living or up to 500m² for other purposes such as a guest house / rural tourism project. There is even a chance that 30 room hotel could be built here. These are all of course subject to consent from the town hall.

This could be a super opportunity!
