Peacefully located in a hamlet-style setting in the countryside, yet very close to the town these wonderful buildings have been beautifully restored — recycling many of the old tiles and millstones etc. It was an old mill and there is a dry mill pond which could viably become a swimming pool if desired. It is easily reached on a tarmac road to a short dirt track and over a pretty river. The large garden provides shady seating areas under the olive trees with views to the river and nature all around.

Just ten minutes drive away is the mountain town of Monchique which has an international supermarket, local market, banks, post office, schools, great restaurants and cafés, individual and unique shops, doctors and dentists amongst many other facilities.

The properties have been creatively renovated and comprise a two bedroom, two bathroom main house with a terrace outside the kitchen, a two bedroom, one bathroom guest house with large varanda, a studio, a laundry, a workshop, a storeroom, a double carport, an outdoor WC and a ruin still to be restored along with the old mill pond.

The houses and studio are heated in winter by wood burners along with electric wall heaters in some rooms and the thick walls and high ceilings help to keep everything cool in summer.

This would make a super wellness retreat, holiday rental for nature lovers or could be lived in as a permanent home by one or two families or maybe with guest accommodation, long term rental, there are many options for such a place.
