The rural location is perfect for growing fruit and vegetables, harvesting cork, or for producing the local brandy from the numerous Medronho bushes. There is an option to negotiate an adjacent further hectare or so of land with a ruin looking over the river.

There are five bedrooms each with a door out to the decking and terraces that surround the house. The three bathrooms are finished to a high standard. The living areas are spacious and many, with ample possibilities to create extra bedrooms or a separate annex. It has been designed to be two separate dwellings if desired with a second kitchen plumbed ready for use. Because this was once used as a school to practice martial arts there is a huge open plan indoor space full of light opening out onto a large flat outdoor lawn area which gives options for even more living space. As well a bright well fitted kitchen and breakfast area, utility rooms, garage, workshop and car port.
Subject to planning this property has the capacity to be built up to 2000m2 as a rural tourism project.
Whilst being very secluded and a little off the beaten track it is easily reached from Monchique or Aljezur in about 30 to 35 minutes of a beautiful drive either way and is just a few minutes away from a hamlet with café/bar etc. And nearby, only about 8kms away is a wellness and yoga retreat.
This small estate would make a wonderful smallholding with or without guest accommodation or which could be a shared project having independent housing, a pleasant holiday home or a peaceful retreat …it really should be seen!
