A superb former hotel, originally built circa 1900, situated in a rural location near Tábua, a tranquil and beautiful part of Central Portugal. The property also has barns, annexes and land which offers an opportunity for a business or investment.
The property occupies an area of 7,343m², with mature plants and various trees, including kiwi, cherry, orange, lemon and olive, and vines. It has a water well.
It is no longer operated as a hotel business, but with minor work to the interior this property could generate a reasonable income. The barns included in the sale could also be developed to enhance the existing accommodation.
Possible uses for the property could be a charming wedding venue or a serene rural retreat. Alternatively, consideration could be given to re-applying for a license to re-open the hotel as a hotel.
The property is accessed from a quiet country lane, a covered gated entrance opens into attractive gardens with stone steps leading up to the first floor balcony.
The accommodation is set over three floors with six ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor. The first floor includes a kitchen, pantry, lounge, dining room, and study. The hallway extends to a further nine bedrooms, four bathrooms, a craft room and another reception room. A storeroom provides access to the second floor loft space, which could be extended to provide further accommodation.
The property benefits from oil central heating with additional wood burners in the barns and an open fire in the main reception room. The property has many original and traditional features throughout, including wooden parquet flooring, tiled walls, internal wooden shutters, terraces and balconies with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. The property is connected to mains electric and water.
The lane continues up to a second entrance which opens into a gravelled garden leading into a converted barn, which offers a comfortable reception and or entertaining room, including a bar, mezzanine floor and wood burning stove.
There is a large garage and storeroom opposite, together with a large area for off-road parking.
An interior courtyard, which has been landscaped with Mediterranean atmosphere, offers a plunge pool with traditional paving and garden and seating area with covered terraces.
There is a separate water tank and a well for external irrigation.
The property is located 10 minutes from Tábua, 20 minutes from Arganil, 50 minutes from Coimbra, one hour Serra da Estrela and 1h 45min from Porto airport.
