Spectacular views!

This could be a fantastic business opportunity - ideal layout for a Bed &Breakfast - come and live the dream!

This large, spacious, five bedroom character villa, is tucked away at the end of its own private calcada driveway on nearly 10,000m2 of land.

The property, built by a Dutch architect in 1987 also benefits from an additional self contained one bedroom apartment. The villa has breathtaking panoramic countryside and sea views and there are numerous private terraces to enjoy gazing at the Algarvean coast!

South facing 10m x 5m pool, with a madeira style pool house set in large grounds completely private and not overlooked - this property will appeal to those who enjoy beautiful and tranquil surroundings.

There are 5 bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, plus a 1 bedroom internal apartment also with fitted wardrobes and a fitted kitchen with marble worksurfaces and spacious dining area. The bathrooms have recently undergone a complete refit.

The villa is within walking distance of bars and local restaurants, so perfect as a main family or holiday home with excellent rental potential. 

Must be seen to be fully appreciated!

About the area:

The property is in the popular Raposeiras area of the beautiful old village of Santa Barbara de Nexe, perhaps best known for its bell tower, a landmark sitting on top of a 400-year-old white walled church which can be seen from miles away. It serves as inspiration for many artists who've painted it and its beautiful surroundings.

The village itself, which is set on the site of a Bronze Age hill fort, has most essential facilities including newsagents, a market, a post office and a large supermarket as well as a number of restaurants and bars.

During the day, you can take a gentle stroll through the village, admiring its Gothic architecture or venture further afield to the rolling countryside and surrounding villages.

Beaches and larger tourists attractions are just a short drive away, as is Faro Airport. In Santa Barbara de Nexe you're in a very convenient location to explore the best of the Algarve.
