Property Description

Organic land in Central Portugal with 9.5 hectares, an old ruin, a stream and an amazing waterfall.

This land was once a working farm, nearly 100 years ago, and the old ruin the permanent residence of a small monastic community. What is left of the monastery are only the exterior walls with a footprint of 373m2. This building constitutes the urban title.

The land also has the rustic title with an area of 93,480m2 and a large outbuilding for storage. There is a large area of native Portuguese forest with many ancient chestnut, holm and cork oak trees (now protected species), a brook flowing across the land and cascading into a charming pool, a very large fertile plot entirely suitable for organic farming and secluded areas for complete privacy and relaxation.

The land was once farmed but has not been used since, with the exception of a small area near the bridge where the current owner had a vegetable garden almost 10 years ago. Organic certification for this land should be easily granted as the soil is unlikely to show the presence of pollutants or agrochemicals not permitted by EU organic standards.

It also has a borehole between the old ruin and the farm’s outbuilding. Mains electricity run nearby for easy connection to the grid, if required.

Additionally, road access is excellent with an unpaved road passing by the main gate.

The land is close to all amenities within close proximity of the picturesque towns of Sertã, Pedrógão Grande and Pedrógão Pequeno. Some of the most stunning river beaches and nature trails of central Portugal are also nearby, as well as the cities of Coimbra, Castelo Branco, Abrantes and Pombal less than 40 to 45min away.

The property is also conveniently located only 2h away from Lisbon and 2h30 from Porto airports.
