THE APARTMENT rented by the McCanns while they were on holiday in Praia da Luz in May 2007 is on the market for 215,000 euros.
The British owners, who bought the ground floor property in 2002, have asked local estate agency Houses & Casas to handle the sale of the two bedroom apartment at the Ocean Club.
A spokesman for Houses & Casas, based in Luz, confirmed that they were selling apartment 5A but refused to give any further details about the property.
The apartment is described on the estate agency’s website as being a two-bedroom property that would be suitable for the rental market.
Police investigators from both the UK and Portugal focused on evidence collected from the apartment to help in the investigations related to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
The apartment has become infamous after British sniffer dogs found evidence of blood and detected the smell of death during the investigation.
Pictures of the sitting room and the bedroom used by Madeleine McCann at apartment 5A have been published by media across the world, arguably making 5A the most famous apartment in Portugal.
According to reports in the Portuguese media, the apartment has received interest from a number of potential buyers but remains on the market.
