Full description:

This IMPOSING & UNIQUE five bedroom house, is situated in a PEACEFUL, PRIVATE and SHELTERED but SUNNY POSITION on the western hillside of the picturesque HISTORIC SPA VILLAGE of Caldas de Monchique, surrounded by lush sub tropical plants and Palm trees.

This MAGNIFICENT MANOR HOUSE is probably the most substantial house in Caldas de Monchique, the idyllic little spa that is thought to echo the architecture of the famous town of Sintra, where nightingales sing amid sub-tropical flowering shrubs and trees. Caldas, built mostly in the Victorian era, is renowned and treasured since Roman times for its curative thermal spring waters.

Caldas Manor was built in 1938, and leaving only the existing outside walls standing, the interior has now been completely rebuilt, leaving it spectacularly transformed. The impressive galleried living area soars two rooms high, and the result is quite spectacular, transforming what was a multi-roomed mini mansion into a superb up-to-date family home. Open plan from the living area there is a diner and a large well appointed kitchen, an entertainment area, and French doors opening on to a covered terrace.

Leading from the upstairs gallery there are three large en-suite bedrooms, a cloakroom, a utility room, and the top outside terrace. Stairs from the living area lead to the lower level apartment which would be very suitable for use as a 'granny flat' or even as a rent-able unit, with a door leading onto the pool area.

The house offers complete privacy with its beautiful sub-tropical walled gardens on four levels. The house and gardens are set back from the main village square ensuring peace and tranquility throughout the seasons. Features include Solar and electric water heating, wood fired central heating system, two wood burning fires, a satellite digital TV system and broadband internet facilities.

The mains water is from the Vila Termal das Caldas de Monchique spa itself. If you feel like being pampered you can take advantage of the new spa facilities just a few minutes walk away, with its large indoor pool, gymnasium, saunas, therapy tubs, steam baths and specialist equipment for the treatment of stress, respiratory complaints, skin ailments and rheumatism and muscular problems. Vila Termal has recently been classed as a leader in 'well-being' spa treatments by the Association of Spas in Portugal.

In the main square there is a local tavern with its roaring log fire and traditional bread oven producing 'pão com chouriço' (spicy sausage in bread rolls). If you want more than a snack there are local restaurants only a couple of minutes walk away. The tree shaded central square has a large attractive handicraft centre and just off the square there is a small post office/craft shop and the charming local church with its golden interior...

Situated in the foothills of Monchique, the magical charm of Caldas de Monchique transports you to a different era. The smell of eucalyptus trees and sub-tropical plants amid the freshness of the mountains is an idyllic combination. With the feel of a rural setting Caldas is only 15 minutes from the centre of Portimão which boasts many restaurants and shopping areas, 20 minutes from the beautiful Coastal towns of Alvor and Praia da Rocha with their Award Winning Beaches and the Historic Town of Silves with its Medieval Castle is also just an easy 10 minute drive away. With the main motorway only 10 minutes away, the journey to Faro Airport is only 50 minutes.

The county town of Monchique, which gives its name to a range of mountains, is close by, with many shops, bars and restaurants. Despite its small size there is a hospital, secondary and primary schools, and a crèche. The beautiful Golfe do Morgado Championship golf course, set in rolling parkland, is less than ten minutes away.

Yet, despite the picturesque and tranquil surroundings, there is entertainment of a more high-octane variety - the new, Formula One-specification Autódromo Internacional do Algarve Motor Racing Circuit is now open, just outside Portimão. Also for the more energetic of us, the woods offer spectacular trails for walking, mountain-biking, horse-riding, etc.
