Property Description

This quinta in its beautiful, private and sheltered location has a total area of more than 2ha, half of which is flat fertile land suitable for grazing, or horticulture, and half is woodland. A small stream borders the southern boundary, and the Rio Mondego is nearby to the north. The small village crowned by its ancient chapel, is 750m away, and has an art gallery with a sociable patio.

The house itself is on two floors and consists of two separate accommodations – the main house and an attached guest house.

The main house is entered via a covered area. It has a hallway and bathroom, a large sitting/dining room and open plan kitchen, with wood burning stoves. There is another adjoining space for an office/bedroom, and upstairs is the master bedroom and bathroom 2.

The guest house has its own entrance, with outside covered eating area and barbecue. The ground floor living room is open-plan with a kitchenette, and upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.
A covered shady terrace with barbecue runs outside the front of the house, with views across the land.

Electricity and telephone, with Internet, are connected. Water is pumped from a well, and there is a septic tank for sewage.

There is space for a swimming pool.

There are many mature fruit trees and vines, and an area suitable for a productive vegetable garden.

The unique location, in a conservation area of special interest, gives privacy and opportunities for agriculture, livestock. It is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, swimmers and fishermen. There are cafes and a small village shop less than five minutes away, and the lively aldeia of Ervedal da Beira is just 5km distance, and has Schools, Health Centre and Post Office, shops, restaurants, a theatre, a Pharmacy and a bank. Centrally located, the major towns of Nelas, Seia, Oliveira do Hospital, and Tábua, are all at 20km, the city of Viseu 40km, and Coimbra 75km.

For the more energetic, Portugal’s only ski resort is less than an hour’s drive in the Serra Estrela mountains, which also provide hiking, cycling, rock-climbing, and water sports in the lakes. The typical mountain hams and cheeses are not to be missed! The coast is 110km away, and there are numerous picturesque river beaches in the immediate vicinity. The area has a rich cultural heritage of folklore, and has retained much of its tradition as may be seen in the many typical Beira villages all around.
