Elvas is truly one of Portugal’s hidden gems, an historic and wonderfully preserved town situated on the arid plains of the Portuguese-Spanish border. And one charming palace nestled in this World Heritage site has been listed on sale. So, if you’ve always dreamed about living in an incredible palace, you just need €12,6 million ($15,698,978) to make your dreams come true.
Palace dated from the 19th century, the legend says that the King Manuel III of Portugal has ordered to build this wonderful palace for his Spanish lover.
A dream property to lose oneself walking through the five hectares of the botanic gardens with magnificent fountains, work of the French architect Forestier who designed Maria Luisa park in Seville and liria Palace gardens in Madrid. The cozy French style palace offers unique architectonical elements, large wooden windows, high ceilings with flower plasters, wooden stairs and solid wood flooring.
The nine hectares of urban land of this property present several buildings: Main palace, staff house, two secondary houses, horse area with 30 boxes and, though isolated in the property, an hotel with 33 rooms and two restaurants. Do you really need anything else?
