This stunning estate with 2.1 ha of land set on a ridge enjoys stunning views of the countryside of the Eastern Algarve. It is in excellent condition and provides a fantastic opportunity to run an elegant B&B or boutique hotel in one of the most beautiful settings of the Algarve. The villages of Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo and Santo Estevão, the town of Tavira and the beaches of Tavira, Barril and Fuseta are all within easy reach. Faro airport is a 40-minute drive away. The area also provides excellent walking, cycling and birdwatching opportunities.

The main houses comprises an L-shaped conservatory with views of the garden, a lounge, a study, a kitchen, a beautiful modern bathroom and, up a set of wooden stairs, a second living or bedroom with panoramic views.

Separated from the main house, or owners’ accommodation, by an arched alleyway is the guest complex with four en-suite bedrooms, some with their own seating area, a self-catering cottage with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and en-suite bathroom, as well as a communal kitchen, laundry room, bar and breakfast room. Outside is a covered barbecue area, several seating areas and a roof terrace. Most areas have exposed stone walls, creating a rustic yet elegant atmosphere.

Down a few steps is the large pool with generous space for guests to relax and enjoy the views.
Furthermore there are several storage rooms and an outbuilding that could be turned into another en-suite bedroom, office, workshop or an artist’s studio.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a characterful property with excellent potential for a tourism business in a beautiful setting close to Tavira and the beaches of the East Algarve.
