This very charming country house has been lovingly restored and maintained by its owners and would make a comfortable home for anyone seeking peace and quiet. Despite its tranquil location in a beautiful valley, it is only a short drive to the attractive village of Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo and the beautiful coastal town of Tavira.
The house is reached via a good country road (tarmac). A paved drive leads up to the parking area. To one side is a terraced, landscaped garden area with palm trees, several seating areas and beautiful views across the valley.
The front door of the house opens onto the spacious living area with a log burner and dining area. To the left is a bright bedroom (or study) with its own access to the front terrace. The lounge also opens on to the kitchen which is rustic in style but fully fitted with gas hob, electric oven, extractor fan, microwave, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and a second, separate freezer unit. French doors open onto the vast covered terrace with plenty of seating and views out to the garden and vineyard.
The main bedroom is reached from the kitchen via its own bathroom (with underfloor heating). This bedroom has its own log burner but also air-conditioning and access to another side terrace.
The third bedroom has its own private terrace with summer kitchen and bathroom with walk-in shower. This part of the house can be used as an independent studio and is therefore ideal for visitors. There are also two small stone cottages just a few steps up from the main house which are fully restored and connected to the electricity.
This is a beautiful country retreat for year-round living with plenty of opportunities. Has to be visited to be fully appreciated.
