This is a quite unique and intriguing property built on five levels and situated in a tranquil natural setting of cork oak forest, fruit trees, landscaped garden, undulating terraces and a river rich with wildlife. It is flooded with natural light through it’s many large picture windows looking out over stunning views of Foia mountain, the highest point in Algarve. The wood floors give a contemporary yet warm appeal.

There are five bedrooms, some with fitted wardrobes, some with basins and all with independent doors 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 lounge, dining, relaxing, mezzanine, study, recreation rooms etc and ample possibilities to create extra bedrooms or a separate annexe. 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 which would be perfect for yoga or similar activities along with a large flat outdoor lawn area for the same. As well a bright well fitted kitchen and breakfast area, utility rooms, garage, workshop and car port.

In fact subject to planning this property has the capacity to be built up to 2000m2 as a rural tourism project and there is an option to negotiate an adjacent further hectare or so of land with a ruin which is fronted by river so would be a spectacular addition once rebuilt.

Whilst being very private and a little off the beaten track it is easily reached from Monchique or the West coast in about 25 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 well-being and yoga retreat.

It would make a wonderful family home or a holiday home for two families or friends in independent habitation but is prime for any kind of retreat or rural tourism such as well-being, camping, wildlife tours…it really should be seen!
