About Scott Gourlay

I live in the Cotswolds with my wife, 3 children and our pet labradoodle.

We have spent most summer holidays in Portugal whilst our children were small and this house has been a great place to relax with the family.

Why Scott Gourlay chose São Bartolomeu de Messines

My mother bought this house over 25 years ago , whilst she was working in Portugal.

It was a bit of a restoration project. When she bought it the house was half derelict and had no bathroom or kitchen. The current lounge was a barn and the Kitchen a chicken house.

We love the countryside around this area and feel you are far enough away from the crowds to really relax but at the same time you can get to the coast in 20 mins for a day out at a great beach or attraction.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This property is different to many properties you will find along the Algarve. It is a genuine Portuguese farmhouse which has a rustic look and feel.

The house has retained some of it's original Portuguese charm , with thick walls , cane roofs and old tiles .

The old walled garden is really special, tiled paths meander around the mature plants and tree's. There are lots of shady spots to sit and while away your day.

The large pool area is also lovely and enclosed within another part of the garden.
