This is one of the most beautiful places in Monchique. On the south-western slope of the Foia. A hamlet with farms in a sheltered mountain basin with fertile agricultural terraces and plenty of natural water sources. Here you have a fantastic view to the south and west coast and the ocean. The 170m2 farmhouse is easily accessible from both the foot and the top of the mountain and is surrounded by almost 1 ha of maintained agricultural terraces. The old farmhouse has a relatively new roof with concrete beams, so that the construction underneath of exterior and interior walls has been well preserved. The farm has a so-called "declaration from before 1951", which means, among other things, that there is a use permit for the now uninhabited farm. The farm on this unique and idyllic spot for this asking price is more than worth it to convert into a lovely home.
The farm is easily accessible via an asphalted country road that meanders through the natural beauty of the south-western slope of the Foia. The hamlet with about 10 houses about 300 m below the Foia summit, is well connected with the village of Monchique (5 km) and the lower road (4 km) between Casais and Marmelete that leads to the village of Aljezur on the west coast. The country road cuts through the almost 1 ha plot. The farm is on the northern piece with the water source. Furthermore there is also a ruin of approximately 70 m2 that used to be a stable for animals. It is possible that more usable space can be created at the location of this ruin.
The basic construction of the farm, the exterior walls and the roof, seems solid. Inside there is the original layout with a few constructive walls and mainly walls that can be removed. Thanks to the sloping roof, the free height can reach up to 4 m, allowing more practical and cosy spaces to be created with intermediate floors. There is a connection to the electricity grid and there is a water source with excellent drinking water. A good basis to create a wonderful place here according to your own ideas.
