If you are looking for peace and quiet in the countryside in traditional Portuguese houses, look no more! These two wonderful cottages are side by side and with a little work could become one larger property. Set on the edge of a peaceful hamlet these houses are just a 10-minute drive to the towns of Salir, Banafim and Alte.

The first cottage has a welcoming entrance hall with warm Santa Catarina floor tiles. To the left is a rustic fully fitted kitchen-diner with all appliances including a washing machine. To the right through original wooden double doors is a classic bedroom. At the end of the hall you enter the lounge with vaulted wooden ceiling and mezzanine floor with a handy second bedroom. Underneath this wooden structure is a storage cupboard and entrance to the spacious newly tiled bathroom with walk in shower. The lounge has a Salamander wood burning fireplace and room for a dining table with patio doors leading out to a private terrace with a Jacuzzi hot tub.

The second cottage has a homely living room also with a Salamander wood burning fireplace, vaulted wooden ceilings and Santa Catarina floor tiles. Off the living room is a laundry/utility room leading through to a simple bathroom. The other side of the living room is a lovely bedroom with original antique floor tiles. Up a few steps from the lounge is a bright enchanting space incorporating a dining area leading into a country style kitchen. With patio doors and skylight windows these rooms are flooded with natural sunlight. The patio doors lead out to the garden which has a storage shed and up steps to the roof terrace giving panoramic 360º views of the peaceful Algarve countryside. Also leading off the dining room is the attractive second bedroom.

To the front of cottage 1 is an enclosed terrace and cottage 2 has an enclosed cobbled country garden with a big tree giving plenty of shade. The cottages benefit from solar heating for hot water and have mains water with cisterna (water holding tank).

These properties were refurbished in 2008 and are ready to live in. They must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
