It´s located in the south-western Alentejo on the shores of the lake of the Santa Clara-a-Velha Dam and enjoys a maximum of privacy with the closest neighbour being over 1 km away. There are plenty of golf courses within an hour drive; Faro airport can be reached within 1 1/2 and Lisbon airport within 2 1/2 hours drive while the closest train station Santa Clara-Sabóia can be reached within just 20 minutes by car. The quinta, conscious of it´s green credentials and carbon footprint, has 16 airy, cool and comfortable bedrooms altogether, 14 of which are en-suite. 8 double en-suite bedrooms, a Family Suite and a Honeymoon Suite, all equipped with a fireplace, are part of the rental business. Furthermore, it comprises of a fully equipped professional kitchen + pizza oven and barbecue, a loft (unoccupied), a dining room (Banana Saloon) with a panoramic window with lake views, a bar, an 24 m² office, massage room, wood-fired sauna, two 34 and 80 m² drawing rooms with wood burning stoves, a laundry, several storage rooms, a battery and a generator shed and even a Dovecot (unoccupied). Most of the rooms open onto private terraces with seating areas and lake views. In addition to a roof terrace and a vine covered terrace there are several garden terraces and lawn areas with seating areas spread all over the garden. The 2 hectares of  automatically irrigated, mature, totally biological, terraced garden include a 70 m² greenhouse, fruit trees, vegetable gardens, ornamental trees, shrubs and lawns lawns. It drops down towards the lake with a 160 m² shaded Yoga Shala and a large pontoon with various boats. The ecologically sensitive Quinta has created it´s own micro-climate and is totally off-grid, running entirely of solar energy - from electricity production and water heating to waste disposal and water purification - with the support of robust back-up systems. Thus, electricity e.g. is provided by photovoltaic arrays, batteries & Sunny Boy Inverter, backed up by 21.5 kw 3-phase, fully serviced Deutz generator. Wherever and whenever it makes sense, the products of power generation, water heating, waste disposal and water treatment are re-used and re-cycled. The Quinta has it´s own water source with the use of a filter system (no connection to mains water). The construction of the self-sustaining property has been adapted to the climatic conditions (thick walls/ overhanging eaves/ ..). In addition to a helipad and a garage (workshop), there is ample shaded outside parking on the property. This small, intimate holiday retreat for peace and relaxation with the total absence of man-made noise and zero light pollution is an ecologically conscious "one-of-the-kind" property with that “certain something”. In fact, this is a great business opportunity - the possibility to take over a successfully run “Alojamento Local” business with a turnover of 1/4 million € per year, all this in perfect harmony with the environment and nature. Sold fully furnished and equipped. - REF: VI-488 * The feature(s)/equipment(s) mentioned in this description are subject to verification and agreement between the vendors and buyers.
