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.
