Property Description

Small farm holding in Central Portugal, located near Martim Branco, a village that is part of the Villages of Slate Route, 24km away from the major city of Castelo Branco.

This holding offers a forest plot of 35,000m2, planted mostly with pine trees, very few eucalyptus trees, as well as a few olive trees, figs, quince and apple trees.

This property benefits from a slate cottage in ruins, for renovation, with an approximate area of 55m2, inserted in a total building area of 425m2, which comprises and old stone well and the remaings of an old treading water system.

Another feature of this property is the existance of two ponds, which were used for irrigation and to supply drinking water for the livestock. At present, on rare occasions, it is possible to watch local wildlife drinking and refreshing around it.

This plot presents itself as an excellent investment for rural tourism or for the implementation of agricultural projects, such as honey production due to wide spread of appropriate wild plants and flowers

The land is located in a secluded area, of rare, unspoiled natural beauty, with breathtaking views of Serra da Gardunha, and it offers plenty of water, due to the closeness of a river that runs side of this land. All these features create a sense of well-being and a charming retreat for anybody looking to get away from the pressures of modern life.

There is also a slate cottage located in the local village, just across the river, at walking distance, very convenient to use during renovation works in the holding. This cottage was renovated in the outside subject to the Slate Villages of Portugal project, which entailed new roof, windows, doors, walls and courtyard pavements. In need of further renovation works indoors. A combined price with the farming holding can be agreed, or separate sale possible. Please see details here.
