Full description:

A wonderfully tranquil country Farmhouse, with spectacular 360 degree views over Algarvean countryside, built to a high standard with an Eco friendly specification, utilising wind resources and solar to generate power and heat.
The Quinta was completed in 2000 and is set in 15 acres of land with a host of indigenous plants, wild lavender and herbs attracting many species of birdlife.  There are two natural small lakes supplying water to the Farmhouse and a  gravel track winds up the hill to the property.
An attractive Farmhouse with some interesting quirky features, entrance through solid wood doors into a hall with seating area, leading to the large lounge and dining area and a secluded atrium set in the heart of the villa. A modern country kitchen opens to the large terraced al fresco dining area decorated with terracotta pots and flowering mediterranean plants,  there are lovely views of the hills.  The farmhouse has three very attractive double bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of the bedrooms has a hayloft mezzanine and the master is spacious with panoramic views.
Built to Dutch specifications, the property is extremely economical to run, with a photovoltaic system and small windmills supplying energy  and a generator as a back up supply. Water is pumped from the lakes to the property, and gutters top up the cisterna.  The water supply can be used for domestic washing and cleaning, and there are gas bottles for cooking and heating water. There is underfloor heating and a log burning stove in the Lounge.
There is a large carport, outbuildings and a lined swimming pool – these are without a license and the price takes this into account.
Perfect for those who enjoy a country lifestyle, the farmhouse is only 10 minutes from the market town of Messines, a few minutes from the pretty village of Serra do Marco, and around 2o minutes from Albufeira.  The A22 motorway can be accessed from Tunes and the A2 to Lisbon from Messines. There is a multitude of golf courses within easy reach, and beautiful beaches only half an hour from Vale Manteigas.
