Property Description


Casa Vergao is a very large house located in a small village in central Portugal. It is currently a perfectly functional guest house.

It was built 70 years ago by a wealthy Portuguese family on its return from Africa and sold it directly to current owners. These have been restored, modernized considerably in 2017. They have redid all the water circuits, 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens, installed a central heating with wood and many other works. The current house does not require any work and remains in perfect health, in very good condition. It can be further improved to the taste of the new owners.

On the 1st floor there are 5 rooms for visitors, with two large bathrooms and a service room.

On the ground floor, there are two further bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens equipped for collective use, two offices, a living room and a dining room, a service room.

In the basement, perfectly usable because very dry, with a concrete floor and a good height, there are different storage spaces used for a laundry, a workshop, a gym or a very large meeting room, a garage with door to the street. The house is on sloping ground, the basement is at street level and the ground floor is at garden level behind so a higher level. It is very functional.

The house has a wide south facing porch overlooking the village with breathtaking views of the valley, the village and the south west.

The house is in the center of 5,000m2 of adjoining gardens, including 3,000m2 above the house and terraced gardens all around the house. These gardens are very productive with a large organic garden and many trees: olive trees, orange, lemon, cherry, pear, fig, etc. Many flowers also, roses, bougainvillea, etc.

There is room and useful access to create a large swimming pool above the house with a magnificent view. There is also a barn very well laid out in the garden with 3 different enclosures, a large bread oven in good working order, a shed with the powerful pump on the private source and the very important water reserve.

There are still other buildings that could be redeveloped for other uses behind the garden.

This house is very functional for use in a guest house because the central part is very good for a family if there are no visitors but can be accommodated by housing up to 6 couples in the 6 rooms. The dining room and living room are suitable for both the family and many visitors.

Both kitchens are very practical to respect the rules of hygiene with the “clean” kitchen and the kitchen of the dishes and washing. Two corridors on the ground floor (one north and one in the center) plus the large veranda to the south allow a pleasant and easy traffic even if the house welcomes many visitors.

The village is very welcoming with two cafes and small grocery stores. The cities are 6km and 12km. The IC8 is just behind a 4km pass to be very accessible from all sides while staying away from noise and pollution. The house is 1:45 from Lisbon, 2 hours from Porto, 45 minutes from Coimbra and 30 minutes from Castelo Branco.

The place is very pure and peaceful, with no pollution even cars, surrounded by eucalyptus and pine forests, the air is perfect. At 400m altitude, it is often more beautiful than on the coast from the mists and marine entrances. But back to the East, there is not too much heat or cold as near Spain.

It is an ideal home to propose themed guest rooms around health, relaxation, even permaculture, organic food, etc. The climate is very pleasant, the silence and the accesses very easy since the airports allow a exploitation all the year and not only to the periods of holidays or for the tourists.

It would be an ideal home for people who have already had a guest house activity in Europe but who want a welcoming and welcoming structure 12 months a year. Easier to live, easier to manage, even more profitable and pleasant even without guests.
