This stone built cottage is the original property on the 130 acre Tapada do Falcao Estate. It lies some 500 metres up a track off the drive to the main house, and is totally hidden from view. It has been sympathetically renovated and furnished with traditional hand painted furniture. It abounds in rustic charm and has wonderful views from its terrace. It may be let separately or in conjunction with the larger Tapada do Falcao (see separate listing).
The cottage lies within 130 acres of woodland and pastureland abounding with cork oaks, eucalyptus and umbrella pines. Indigenous shrubs and flowers flourish in their natural state. A small vineyard was planted in 2000. From the wild flower garden and terrace of the cottage are wonderful rural views over hills and valleys. There is a tennis court on the estate which cottage occupants share with the main house. Despite its peaceful and secluded position, it is possible to walk to the small local village in under 10 minutes.
