This charming traditional house is located on the edge of the unspoilt village of Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, just 20 minutes from Tavira, Olhão and the beaches of Barril or Fuzeta. The village centre with its cafés, shops, a bank and a post office is within easy walking distance, and a popular restaurant is just two minutes walk away.

The main features of this property are the covered front terrace and the traditional well, or nora, which to this day provides the water for the house and the garden with its variety of fruit trees. Santa Catarina floor tiles used inside the house and on the terraces add to the character of this property.

The house consists of a kitchen with an open fireplace, two bedrooms, a lounge, an office, a bathroom with shower and a storage or utility room. A steep internal staircase leads up to the south-facing roof terrace with country views.

Outside there are two covered terraces, one at the front and one at the back, a large sun terrace with the traditional well at its centre, a tiled swimming pool, a garden with mature trees and a chicken coop, a spacious driveway and a carport for two cars. The property is fenced and accessed via a double gate.

Characterful houses like this in such a convenient location are very rare, so early viewings are highly recommended.
