This is a fantastic property in a great location, the villa is surrounded by it's own land of 46 hectares, making this a completely private haven for those seeking the peace and quiet of the Algarve countryside. Unlike most country properties with this much privacy you are within walking distance to the local town of Amarosa with a range of amenities and social activities. There are also some very good restaurants within a kilometre or two. The Villa itself is finished to a very high standard and all of the rooms are light and spacious. From the main entrance hall there are double doors into a very large lounge with a log burning fireplace, adjoining dining area with a breakfast bar separation to the large country kitchen. Both the lounge and dining areas have patio doors leading to the garden and pool areas and the kitchen has access to the main driveway and parking areas.

Returning through the hallway there is a utility /laundry room, office, and the four bedrooms. The master bedroom is very spacious with south facing windows and patio doors to the garden. There are extensive built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with full bath, walk-in shower and double sink unit. The second and third bedrooms also have built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms and the fourth bedroom has use of a guest bathroom which also has full bath, walk in shower and double sink unit.

Outside, there is a large covered terrace with breathtaking views of the countryside. There is a eco-friendly, chlorine free swimming pond where you can relax and watch the amazing sunsets. Underneath the house there is a large basement currently serving as a storeroom that could easily be converted to a garage, cinema room, games room or a separate apartment, There is also a covered log storage area to the rear of the house and a large workshop.

The property benefits from all modern conveniences that include, double glazing, air-conditioning in the main rooms, satellite TV and broadband internet with wifi, mains electricity and water is supplied by two natural springs on the property that fill a 36,000 litre cistern. The plot is more than 46 hectares and encompasses most of the valley that is situated in front of the property, there are a mixture of wooded hills and open fields that make the property flexible for a number of uses. With plenty of space for horses this property could make an excellent stables or riding school or could be cultivated for agriculture, vineyards, orchards or livestock. The highest point on the property, Monta Rosa, from which the property get its name, offers views of all the Algarve coast between Lagos and Albufeira and inland across the country to the Monchique hills. There is a track to the top of Monta Rosa which is good for walking, riding or four wheel drive vehicles.

The nearby village of Amorosa has a great social scene with a great mix of local Portuguese, British, Dutch and other expatriates who organise regular events such as dinners, quizzes all in aid of local charities. The village is approximately 1.2 km from the property and is well serviced with a supermarket, mini market, bakery, bank cash point and restaurant. There are regular bus services from Amorosa to the nearby towns of both Silves and Messines. In addition, village of Val Fuzeiros is approximately 2.5km down the valley which offers three popular bar / restaurants with varying types of cuisine and entertainment.

In summary this is a unique property that offers modern living set in the most spectacular natural environment. The property is private without being isolated and will make a beautiful country residence, holiday home or could be a great opportunity for an equestrian business or rural health retreat.
