Property Description


If you are looking for a purpose-built, recently completed, top quality, fully insulated, off-
grid, fantastically located 10-bedroom property in central Portugal, then Quinta Canaval
should be top of your list.

This outstanding property is in an enviable countryside location, with views down a secluded
valley to the Zézere river. The property lies five kilometres upstream from the landmark,
Cabril dam and lies on the border of the popular Oleiros and Sertã council areas.

Quinta Canaval is at the end of a forest track, offers total seclusion, is a luxury property and
has been architect designed with thought and care.

This is the perfect purchase for someone wanting a country lifestyle running a tourism
business that is viable in both the winter and summer seasons.

Guests may delight in following the old goat track down to the river and exploring the many
tracks through the woodland.

The property has ten bedrooms in three buildings and can sleep up to 20 people. There is a 20
x 2.5 metre swimming pool, and indoor and outdoor eating areas.

This exceptional property is purpose-built as a tourism business or retreat, is light, open and
spacious with ten bedrooms in three separate buildings. There are living, dining and kitchen
areas over each of the 190m2 levels of the two floor main house – all are open plan and all
have views of the countryside through double-glazed sliding doors and windows.

The separate cottage, the 60m2 ‘Adega’, offers yet more seclusion with an outstanding view
of the river through the picture window and from its wooden-decked terrace.

This luxury cottage with nearby stream is ideal for owners to use during peak tourist periods
or from which to run the business full-time. The cottage has underfloor heating, a wall-
mounted log-burner and fully equipped kitchen plus double bedroom and bathroom.

The ‘Old Bakery’ cottage with around 60m2 of space, is attached to the Quinta’s main terrace
but is a separate building that offers double-bed luxury on two levels with exposed beamed
ceilings and underfloor heating.

Canaval was designed as a multi-functional retreat and now is ready for an owner to develop
it as a retreat or an Alojamento Local (AL) tourism rental business in an area of growing

The house and its cottages replaced an old farm and were completed in 2018, since which the
property has been trialled with ‘friends and family’ to pressure-test systems and ensure 100%
functionality before sale.

The new owners will enjoy stamping their mark on this versatile property. It’s a fully functional setup yet, in business terms, it’s a blank canvas as it can be developed as a retreat, as top-quality rental business or as a luxury rural home.
