Nestled in a quiet valley with two crossing streams on the foothills of the largest Mountain in the Algarve called Foia, this charming watermill is located less than five minutes drive from Monchique and within walking distance of the famous Spa of Caldas de Monchique, dating back to Roman times.

Monchique is a rural mountain town, but features all amenities, such as several supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, bars and restaurants, often with stunning views.

The area is very popular for hikes, mountain-biking or for those looking for a bit more quiet and relaxing atmosphere while still being in the heart of the Algarve, with a twenty minute drive to the Portuguese South Coast and about 40 minutes to the West-Coast with its more rugged beaches and refreshing Atlantic ocean compared to the warmer South. There are also several golf courses less than half an hour drive away, the closest being the one of Morgado, which features two 18 hole courses.

Caldas de Monchique is famous for it’s hot water spa and refreshing atmosphere, as well as the famous spring water that is being sold across the country.

The property is a renovated watermill that has been lovingly restored by the current owner, even winning second prize in a competition for best renovation some years ago.

The house itself measures about 100m2 and is situated on a 600m2 plot bordering a stream, very easy to maintain for those not wanting too much work in the garden.

The property is very private with good access and all amenities such as electricity, telephone/internet and its own borehole providing clean spring-water.

The house itself features a country-style kitchen with spacious storage, living room with a beautiful open fireplace and three bedrooms. The bathroom is fully equipped with a modern design.

Outside there is a lush garden with a small bridge crossing the stream, while the old waterbasin has been converted into a large swimming pool with surrounding terraces for loungebeds etc.

The house will be sold fully furnished except for some personal belongings.
