Property Description

A charming estate with 9,761m2 of fertile land and submitted and approved plans for a rural tourism project.

Architectural Project

Should the new owners decide to do so, this “quinta” offers the ideal opportunity to build and develop a small rural tourism business: smallholding/retreat/rental/etc. The architectural project comprises seven new timber frame 2 bed houses suspended on wooden stakes, two 1 bed stone houses to be refurbished and one building hall with two large rooms that can serve as restaurant or reception areas.

The project concept is based on an orientation of all the houses to the Mountain View on a 90 degrees rotation set. Each house is orientated to the same point (centre) and rotated 15 degrees in relation to the one next to it. The number 7 was chosen for its symbolism meaning perfection, plenitude, accomplishment. This set in the terraced land makes that each house has its own floor level in relation to the other, according to the terrace which it is set on, which allow some of the houses to have parking areas under the house.


The soil is fertile having been worked and cultivated for many years. Beautiful views to Serra do Ladário Mountain. Terraced land divided in terraces good for cultivation. There are many large chestnut trees plus apple, olive, orange, peach and plum trees. There are also vineyards together with stone walls dividing each land terrace.

There are two abundant natural springs, irrigation tank and natural gullies that allow the sustainable watering of the land. Also mains water exists within a short distance.

In addition mains electricity is on the plot and the telephone line is close so connection to these two services would only be a nominal cost.

This quinta is perfect for sustainable living. Each future house owner/tenant can grow his own vegetables and use his own water from the property. Each house is meant to be provided with solar panels to sanitary water use.

This lovely property in an idyllic location – totally peaceful and surrounded by nature, with stunning views. Walking, cycling and canoeing on river Vouga are just a few examples of the huge touristic potential.

Situated in the outskirts of a small village (Nespereira), this estate is conveniently situated close to A25 highway, on the Vouga river southern slopes, which make very easy access to the historic cities like Viseu (30min) or Aveiro ( 30min) , Sá Carneiro airport in Porto ( 1h30m), sea and beaches (Costa Nova 40m).
