Property Description

As you enter the property to your left is pasture down towards an open spring fed well and a Large pond with year round water. On the right is a small forest of mature pine with some cork oak mixed in. Typical Monsanto Granite Boulders create some natural clear and flat spaces which add character to this forested area while also providing potential locations and stone for a home.

Continuing on, both directions end up on a large pasture which was traditionally irrigated with the pond water. The location of the pond with respect to the meadow insists that at least some of the field could be irrigated by gravity.

An additional small pine forest sits outside the fence which runs around the entirety of the rest of the property. Everything mentioned is set with beautiful views of the Penha Garcia mountain range in the background, producing the sensation of privacy with a view.

Monsanto village is within 5 minutes by car, a magical medieval village nestled on top of a mountain made of giant granite boulders. One of mother nature’s works of art married with centuries of careful and meticulous work by it’s inhabitants, Monsanto is well known as Portugal’s “most Portuguese village”. As well as it’s beauty, Monsanto also provides facilities such as a bank, health care centre, kindergarten and primary schools, restaurants, bars, a monthly street market, small grocery stores, construction supply, and local tradesmen. In the neighbouring village 10 minutes away, Penha Garcia, there is an incredible UNESCO world heritage site famous for its fossils, rock-climbing, natural swimming pool, waterfall and lake. If you keep going in that direction, you’ll pass the curing spa waters of Monfortinho, before crossing the border into Spain. 20 minutes in the opposite direction takes you to Idanha-a-Nova, with amenities such as supermarkets, movie theatre, indoor pool, library and museum.
