Full description: For those who want total peace and quiet, away from all but will find it right here! This is a place for those who love nature as one will never find it anywhere else.

The location is idyllic, lying between the famous and unusual town of Sortelha and the home of Torre cheese, Sabugal, both of which have castles. To get to the property you have to be prepared to drive a good farm track for 1.7 km from the tar mac road but isn't this exactly what we imagine being away from the noise and bustle would mean...hidden away down some inconspicuous and obscure track?

The south facing property extends over 16 ha of land. Combined with spectacular views there are 12 fish-filled lakes, hills with giant weird boulders typical of the area and forested areas which have paths winding in and out where on can walk endless miles accompanied by the owners 3 curious and friendly young horses which live there and roam wild.

Around the house there is a garden area which is pretty. The living accommodation for the moment comprises of only the one stone house which can sleep up to 9 people. The owner has built another adjoining rock house which is stunningly unusual but needs finishing.

The accommodation comprises of a giant open-plan kitchen / dining room / lounge. The fantastic bathroom with Jacuzzi is also on this floor. Words cannot adequately describe the creativity with which this space was dressed and wrapped around the giant boulder which forms one of its walls.

Upstairs under the roof is the sleeping space with one private double bedroom having a mirror-faced wardrobe and the remaining area forming a common/shared sleeping space but which can easily be divided into separate room.

Near the house is a warehouse-type building covering 700 m2, with adjoining, a row of about 5 separate rooms which look like they served as offices at one time. Without much investment, these could easily be converted into extra accommodation.

Water is provided by 2 wells and there are also quite a few natural springs plus there is a borehole.

This house could become a fantastic tourism business if permission is granted as there are innumerable attractions surrounding it. Sortelha is a few kilometres away. A breathtaking place perched high up and overlooking all that surrounds it, with its balancing pancake boulders and most magnificent castle. Definitely a place in Portugal not to be missed of you want to gaze in amazement at natures artistry and sculptures.

Sabugal a lovely quaint cobbled city along the river Coa and home of the famous Torre cheese Again a very beautiful castle! Serra da Estrela, Portugal's highest mountain range where you can go skiing. Lovely craft shops too so don't forget your purse or you will hate yourself. Only 30km to drive. The Malcata Nature Reserve and mountains with its charming reservoir is the only place in Portugal where the lynx is still found. Sparsely populated is has mountains dotted with olive and almond trees, a pretty sight indeed and one could soon become lonely and hoping to meet another human being, it is so tranquil.

Bendada, an end-of-the-world village lying against a mountain which is made of quartz and other beautiful semi-precious stones. One can even find stalagmites lying around its environs for the picking up. Bring a small hammer and a drawstring bag for your treasure hunt. Covilha and Guarda, two of Portugal's characteristic cities which both merit a visit.
