Situated close to the coastal headland and within easy reach of the popular resort towns and villages of this low-density natural environment. If you are looking for solitude and self-sufficiency but wish to remain close to civilisation, then this could be the perfect fit.
This well-loved family home is ready for the next chapter. The owners were lucky to find such a large piece of land on which to build their dream home. Fortunately, the whole area is safeguarded against future development as it is located within the Costa Vicentina Natural Park which stretches west to Sagres and then up the west coast towards Lisbon for 150 kms. The beautiful golden beaches of the south are practically on the doorstep and are ideal for sunbathing and swimming whilst the wilder west coast, a surfers paradise and a very large garden, are within a short drive from home.
Access from the main coast road is via a short well maintained dirt track that has a few twists and turns adding to the feeling of intimacy and providing a welcome retreat from the Summer crowds.
The accommodation is all on one level and consists of a fully equipped kitchen in a rustic farmhouse style that has lovely pink marble work tops and plenty of storage a large living / dining room with a wood burning closed fireplace and beautifully crafted internal wooden doors that along with the chestnut beams add charm and character to the heart of the house. A twin set of double patio doors give access to a long shaded terrace with large a series of arches surrounded by bougainvillea each framing a wonderful view stretching out over the valleys below and sweeping east to west along the coastal headland. The surrounding land is scattered with Olive, Almond and Carob trees and there are walking paths in all directions some of which lead to nearby beaches.
The bedroom accommodation is split into two divided by the main daytime living area. There are three bedrooms to the south with a guest cloakroom and family bathroom, the bedrooms are light and airy and two of them have doors that open onto the garden. On the north side there are two further bedrooms both with their own washing facilities as well as a shared bathroom and patio doors opening onto their own private terraces.
