Here is a real opportunity for creating a Rural Tourism Retreat or just a wonderful Home with Annexes, Land and Stables all set in a beautiful tranquil Valley with lovely neighbours located at just the right distance away to ensure privacy, but have that friendliness and helpfulness ever hoped for, but seldom found.  What is so unusual is that this property has FOUR buildings that the Camara at Loulé have stated in writing can each be extended up to 300m² and therefore is an ideal property for Rural Tourism or for Two Families looking to share a property equally.  Currently the property briefly comprises Building One – Main House: fully restored and comprising Entrance Hall, large Living Room with Wood Burner, large Kitchen Diner, Two Double Bedrooms and a huge luxury Bathroom. The entire ground floor is wheelchair accessible. There are stairs from the living room to a spacious Roof Terrace.   Building Two:  This building is currently attached to the main house but could easily be made separate.  The area, which is some 135m² has had a new roof, new flooring and has a rudimentary modern bathroom area. Building Three: Has been reroofed and a new concrete floor laid, currently used as a Hay Store, Barn and Stabling for two horses.  Building Four: This Ruin is set a little higher than the other buildings and requires complete reconstruction although it has water and power in situ. There are large areas of Flat Land adjacent to each building including one area that has a potential 38m x 18m Manege (base prepared). By the Stables is a large stone free Paddock or area ideal for Camping Tourism, many varieties of Fruit Trees, Cork Oaks and a pretty river runs along the edge of the land most of the year.
