This typical Alentejo style farm house is located in a very private, peaceful and secluded 8 hectare (20 acre) property, gated and fully fenced with stunning views of the Alentejo countryside. It has been meticulously cared for by its owners and is a beautifully furnished large family home with many Asian antiques, fused with a rustic Portuguese farmhouse style. There are 4 large double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities plus an additional separate family bathroom. The house has a fully equipped country style kitchen with all mod cons. The large lounge has a flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite TV (Portuguese), iPod docking station and a wood burning stove. The house is centrally heated for the cooler months. The large dining area has a table that can accommodate up to 10 people.
Outside & Gardens: The house has two double doors that lead out from the lounge and dining room to a very large patio that has a 10m x 4.5m swimming pool. Sun beds and a large umbrella are provided. The attractive pool house with a hammock provide another shady retreat during the warm summer months. The well tended lawns and gardens have many flowers, shrubs and trees, including Cork, Eucalyptus, Olive, Peach, Willow and Medronho trees. This rural location next to the Parque Natural attracts many beautiful birds, including eagles. At the rear of the house are two spacious eating areas, one of which is covered and nicely shaded in a typical rustic Alentejo style. The outdoor dining table can accommodate 8 people comfortably. The rear patio area also has a traditional Portuguese brick built BBQ area with a preparation sink. It should be noted that the house is reached by a long and steep private road which leads up from the lower part of the property. Therefore a car is essential.
Additional note: The house can also be rented as a 3 bedroom rental (not including the owner's master bedroom suite) at a reduced rate. Please contact the owner for rental price details
The house is situated adjacent to the Parque Natural do Sudoeste in the beautiful and tranquil Alentejo countryside, dotted with sleepy villages from times gone by. Only 9km to the town of Sao Teotonio, which has shops, cafes, restaurants, and all modern conveniences. The nearest beach is at Zambujeira do Mar, only a 20 minute drive away. The unspoiled coastline of the Costa Vicentina has some of the most spectacular beaches in Portugal and many are a haven for surfers. The beaches and golf courses of the Western Algarve are also less than an hour away. Exploring inland provides the perfect opportunity to see the rolling hills of Alentejo. The stunning Santa Clara-a -Velha lake is nearby where you can picnic, fish and bathe in the warm, clear water. The beautiful old town of Monchique high in the hills is a 45 minute drive away where you can visit the old spa and the 16th century church with magnificent views all the way to the Algarve coast.
