Landscape is almost flat with a steeper area leading to the 300-metre river front along the river Maçao. There is an olive grove with 5,000m2 and olive trees in full production, land with 20,000m2 with 4-year old eucalyptus trees, 15,000m2 with 15-year old pine trees. Eucalyptus and maritime pine trees are not protected by legislation. As such, they could be cut down for profit and the area reforested with native trees and shrubs such as oaks, strawberry trees and other Mediterranean species including medicinal and aromatic plants. There is also space for many other edible crops and for vegetable and flower gardens.

A sunny location, typical schist soil and local flora biodiversity explain the age-old use of this property by beekeepers. In fact, this property constitutes the ideal setting where to grow aromatic plants for the commercial production of essential oils, honey and beeswax products.

The riverfront may benefit from landscaping but it already has some beautiful native trees, it could be further reforested with more native riverside species such as alders, willows and weeping willows for optimal use of water resources and to create a more pleasant riverside area.


Less than 1km from Mação, an inland town in a region supported by an excellent road network and the A23 in particular.

Close to all services and amenities: supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, tax office, swimming pools, etc.
