Country-side View
Rare opportunity to purchase a real piece of history. This beautiful old quinta is a ruin set on 8.5 hectares is amazingly a short walk into the historic town of Silves - although you feel you are miles from anywhere.

The land is nearly all flat and would make perfect grazing for horses, with streams, springs and 2 lakes the land is nearly always green and it has a small river frontage.

There is beautiful little guest house built out of the local stone that's was also used for the castle. The property also has a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with an open plan lounge diner with wooden ceilings and kitchen, this has fantastic ancient stone terraces with old wells and a water tank that is now a swimming pool.

The old farm had a plan for a hotel or guest house and the owner still has these available if required. The property has long driveways all the way round with tall cypress trees on either side lending a Tuscan feel. There are some beautiful old stone features like the bridge and wells that give this property and ancient charm. With hundreds of ancient trees and oleander lined walkways this is a stunning plot.

The ruin is in need of a rebuild but it has lots of potential.
