The house can be entered from back or front into a lovely hallway that leads on one side to a large bedroom with lots of mezzanine storage space, a bright bathroom and utility area for washing machines etc.

On the other side is a wonderful open plan lounge, dining area and smart fully equipped kitchen, all geared for social and easy living. Past this is the second large bedroom with a fabulous bathroom incorporating a jacuzzi bath and built in thermostatic taps.

The house is cool in summer time and for those winter evenings there is underfloor heating and a top of the range Fogo Montanha log burner. Water is solar heated and there is an endless supply from two springs and a borehole.

The land around the house is terraced with lots of plants and fruit trees and a stream runs past. If you are looking for a paradise of peace and nature this is it!

If more land were desired there’s an option to acquire a further 1.8ha of neighbouring land with an old house for renovation from the same owner.

Whilst hidden away in the mountains it is only 9km to the town of Monchique with all amenities and 30km to the beaches of the west coast.
