THE ALGARVE CASTLE
UNIQUE INVESTMENT CLOSE TO FARO AND THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Standing out as a piece of art and a succeeded mixture, between a feudal castle (on the outside) and a Moorish palace (in the inside), this property is a unique opportunity to purchase a property investment in the Algarve ideal for either commercial or private usage.
This property with an old windmill and its charming Moorish architecture is situated on a hill standing tall 125 meters above sea level without any close neighbours. The south oriented “Castle”, as it is called, provides an amazing view over the surrounding countryside and the sea. When lit up at night by the spotlights, the property merges into a golden magical light, very impressive too are the view one has in the evening from the castle over Faro and all the tiny lights in the horizon.
As much as the castle is reminiscent of the past with its Moorish architectural style it is in fact a construction from the present, built after a well thought-out project, which still needs to be completed.
Throughout the property one is reminded with the history of the Moors in the Algarve, through the use of simple but very effective construction materials such as terracotta and ceramic tiles, wood and stucco fine work. The ornamental forms of the Islamic construction art, were also adopted within its coloured tiles and mosaic work. The monumental wooden ceilings, as well as the Moorish arches and the wooden ornamental grids at the windows, complete this 'Thousand And One Nights’ property.
Below the main house is a large, saltwater, overflow pool which is surrounded by beautiful patios with hand-painted tiles, partly covered, from which one easily accesses to all the other accommodations and the different parts of the building. A beautiful courtyard in Moorish style, with its arches and vaults invites to wander and ramble.
The location and access is extraordinary, the highway is around 2 km away, it takes only approximately 15 minutes to get to the International Airport of Faro and the busy city of Loulé (6 Km), or the beaches of the Golden Triangle.
