The house is fully equipped and modern, has been totally renovated less than 2 years ago. There is a very efficient wood burner in the kitchen that provides heat throughout the house. There are also electric radiators in the bedroom and bathroom providing additional warmth on colder nights.

There is a separate building close to the main house that is currently used as a guest room. It has a wood burner installed and a separate bathroom with shower. There is the possibility of converting this easily to a self contained accommodation.

Below the house is a loja that is currently used for storage but could be incorporated into the house to create further accommodation.

Approximately 1,000m2 land split into 3 large terraces, 2 smaller terraces and an enclosed garden.

The terraces offer plenty of scope to be self sufficient with fruit and vegetables: tangerine, figs, orange, lemon, tomatillo, tamarillo, grapes, kiwi, various berries.. Two of the terraces are planted with vegetables for the coming season with a lot of scope to further vegetables. A well is on the middle terrace providing sufficient water for all terraces plus there are water rights to a small stream. Pipework is in place to feed the main terraces.

There is an outside oven (can be seen in the photos) that is great for BBQ baking bread, pizzas etc.

The property offers the opportunity for a ‘Lock and Leave’ holiday home… Being easily secured and having to pass through the village to arrive at the property.

South facing, giving a lot of sunshine with wide ranging views across the Alva valley toward the mountains.

Located in a small hamlet comprising of around 10 houses, the hamlet is a cul-de-sac, there is no passing traffic through.

The quinta sits at the very end of the hamlet with tarmac access straight to the property.

It is just off the N17 with Oliveira do Hospital the nearest town, about 10 – 15 minutes away. Tábua is also close, 15 – 20 minutes away.

It is very peaceful here, neighbours are friendly and helpful. There is an array of delivery vans that come into the hamlet on a daily basis selling a wide range of food including fish and bread as well as general groceries.

The property is within easy walking distance of a modern, friendly cafe and a very nice bar/restaurant specialising in quality Portuguese food as well as offering a range of bar snacks.

It’s a great, central location to explore the region whilst having a very quiet, easy life on this low maintenance quinta.
