Property Description

This cute stone cottage is in fact deceptively large (95m2 footprint) and provides a comfortably sized 2-3 bedroom home (currently has 2 bedrooms and two living rooms).

Built on/around two granite boulders (penedos) – which create the walls of the hallway, dining/living room, and kitchen – the cottage is full of character and charm including exposed granite stonework, granite stone window seats, and an ornate Portuguese wood burning stove.

The cottage was completely renovated just a few years ago, including a new insulated roof, new electrics and plumbing, new kitchen and bathroom. This year it has had new double-glazed windows, doors, and shutters.The main front entrance to the cottage is at street level, but leads into the first floor of the property.
