Set in the beautiful countryside near Silves, one of the Algarve’s oldest towns, this property’s location provides for absolute privacy, whilst the relative proximity to the region’s main roads ensures that a short drive will take you anywhere you need to go. Two international schools are conveniently located less than 3 minutes away, with the beach within a mere 10-minute drive. Access to the main regional highway is just 5 minutes away, ideal for longer journeys such as the 40-minute drive to Faro International Airport. Faro connects with all major European cities within 2-3 hours flight. The estate has a total construction area of 3,157 m2, comprising of a main house, two guest houses, staff apartments and a 5 meter high workshop, where the sculptures are created. The Main Residence offers on 1,868 m2 3 to 5 ensuite bedrooms, Reception Lounge, Living Room, Dining Room Kitchen, SPA, cinema, and many more high end amenities. The spacious rooms are permanently bathed in natural light spilling through the large glass facades. Modest light colours are found throughout the house and are shown at their best in the natural sunlight, blending with the house’s clean modern lines. The travertine stone slabs, which cover most of the ﬂoors in a honey colour, were purposely chosen to ﬁt with the natural and modest appearance. The rich walnut wood of the doors contrasts with the light colours of the walls, as do the bright colours of the modern furniture, resulting in a peaceful blend of opposites. To keep with the theme of harmony, special attention was paid in ensuring that all of the major rooms were formed in accordance with the ‘golden cut’, a measure of balance used frequently in mathematics and arts. The amenities offered by this estate put most hotels to shame, with an entire ﬂoor dedicated solely as a spa and leisure area. Breathtaking custom-made mosaic artwork decorates the bottom of the indoor-outdoor pool, located near the sauna and infra-red cabin. While there is plenty of space around the pool to lie and relax during the summer, the interior boasts similar opportunities ideal for the wintertime. The spa area’s microclimate remains warm throughout the year making the pool and jacuzzi pleasant in any calendar month. Secondary amenities such as a gym and a second lounge are also found on this floor, as well as a state-of-the-art home cinema. The cinema room was designed for that specific function and is specialised to maximise the cinema experience in both picture and sound quality. Other impressive amenities can be found outside, namely the synthetic grass tennis court, perfectly aligned to the north allowing for the best sun exposure.Wine is another important feature of the estate. The two hectares of red grape varieties were planted in 2006 and can be used to grow your own estate-produced wine. To store this nectar, there is an underground cellar, with its consequent natural climate regulation, which is connected to the main house through a corridor.Visual beauty is guaranteed by the colourful blossoms of local trees and bushes: jacaranda, acacia, pepper tree, almond tree, oleander, plumbago and bougainvillea. They were selected for their stunning flowers and their year-round bloom times. Others are responsible for scent: jasmines, roses, lavender and rosemary. The murmur of water, rustling of palm leaves and birdsong allow you to hear the life in the garden. The vineyard, as well as the fruit and vegetable gardens, brings you flavours to entice your palate.
