The house is a traditional Algarvian farmhouse and pains have been taken to maintain the original features and characteristics.

The main accommodation has 2 bedrooms, (both en-suite), a modern kitchen and dining area, and a living room with woodburning stove, with library/hayloft above.

Through a separate door along the patio are a further 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and kitchen/diner. This can either be used as a guest cottage or could be easily incorporated into the main building with an additional bedroom converted from the kitchen. The accommodation of 192m2 also has a utility room currently used for washing machine and freezer etc.

The 5th bedroom/office (also en-suite) is detached from the main house (above the small barn/garage) and adjacent to the stables.

Outside the length of the main building there is a charming patio opening up onto the swimming pool with 11m x 4.5m pool (with telescopic all year pool cover and heat pump) and barbecue area. There is ample outside dining space, either on the patio or by the pool. From a balcony, which completes the privacy of the pool area, can be seen in one direction the sea in the distance and in the other direction extensive rolling views to the nearby hills, some 15-20km away.
