This enchanting house used to be the estate's riding stables

Set in a walled recently replanted lemon orchard, it has its own traditionally cobbled terrace and is separated from the Quinta by wrought-iron gates.

In the middle of the courtyard, there is a plane tree which provides cool shade even on hot days. The village can be reached via a separate driveway and gate. This little house was converted in 1995 and is comfortably and stylishly furnished. The large living/dining area is a great place to relax with four sets of doors and windows to front and rear, creating an attractive Mediterranean outdoors feel. A modern wood burning stove is set in a stone fireplace and the beautiful wooden ‘coffin’ ceilings give the room character and interesting focal points.

There is satellite TV, DVD/VCR, and CD player for evening entertainment. The kitchen is well-equipped with all mod-cons, including microwave, dishwasher, electric ceramic glass hob, oven, fridge-freezer, coffee-maker and kettle; the marble worktops add a touch of luxury. The washing-machine is housed at the rear of the building.

There are three bedrooms in this house. The two doubles both have space for a cot and wardrobes for storage. The rear bedroom boasts a king-size bed and a window to the garden, whereas the front bedroom has an antique wicker double bedstead and patio doors opening to the front courtyard. The third bedroom is a smaller room often used by children or teenagers and has bunk beds plus space for a cot or an extra bed.

The entire house has a pleasant, traditional style, with Portuguese terracotta and hand painted tiled floors; there’s a freestanding bathtub with 'telephone' hand shower and marble/wood surround sink. A second WC / shower room has marble walls and a walk-in shower. There’s central heating throughout.

There is a possibility to witness a traditional Portuguese wedding, with the reception and wine tasting held in the main court.
