4 Bed House for sale in Monchique

Full Description

Charming chalet of Swiss architecture, built around 1920 and located in the heart of Caldas de Monchique, just a few metres from the famous thermal waters and only 25min from the beaches of the western Algarve and 40min from the Costa Vicentina.

This iconic property was fully renovated in 2019 and is in excellent condition, offering all the comfort that someone looks for in a mountain house. The lower floor is composed by a spacious studio. In the first floor, we have a hallway, a corridor, a bedroom with dressing room and private balcony, a bathroom, a dining room and a kitchen. On the second floor, two more bedrooms (one of them ensuite) with private balconies and a bathroom. Outside, a garden carefully arranged and that has a huge shade, creates a calm and relaxing environment.

An ideal place to enjoy the green valley with a temperate microclimate, situated between the two peaks of the Serra de Monchique - Foia and Picota - with stunning and panoramic views of the mountains and the Atlantic, as did the Romans who settled here around the 3rd century BC, seduced by the healing properties of its medicinal waters. Here one can breathe an invigorating fresh air, suitable to undertake the many activities that the region offers: walks or bicycle rides, yoga, meditation, contemplation of rare species of flora and fauna so rich in the mountains, among others.

The layout of this house allows a permanent family use or even a partial holiday rental, since the owners can live in the studio, which has an independent entrance, and receive their guests on the two upper floors.

About 25 minutes north of the magnificent beaches and golf courses of the western Algarve, you will find 39 hectares of serenity in the hills cut by streams, also known as the "Garden of the Algarve".

The village of Monchique stands at 458 meters high, simple and beautiful, as if to show much more of what the Algarve region can offer besides its beautiful beaches and blue sky. The termal village of Caldas de Monchique is located 6 km south of Monchique and 18 km north of Portimão. It is also about 52 minutes from the sumptuous beaches of the Vicentine Coast (to the west) and offers residents and visitors alike a unique combination of lush vegetation, historic 19th century buildings, cultural heritage and a thermal spa.

Recently, the local authorities launched the Renature Monchique project to promote the recovery of the ecosystems in harmony with the rest of the Algarve region - which remains Portugal's top holiday destination. Private investors have invested several million of euros in renovating the tourism offer, raising standards and the wellness offer of this region.
