Property Description

A beautiful permaculture farm in a peaceful valley of Monchique mountains is looking for new owners.

It is a full running permaculture farm that has been created over the period of 13 years. Land with 2.5ha, a house, water, mountain spring, olive trees, medronho trees, forest garden, fruit trees, goats, chickens, ducks, cats & dogs, it is ready to be lived in & from.

At the moment the house has a kitchen with a big Portuguese oven, 2 bathrooms, 3 living rooms (2 of which have fireplace) & 2 storage rooms, 1 of which can be also used as living room, the other was originally a kitchen with the small stove for cooking. So the house is suitable for 2 families/community. There is still a ruin which can be rebuilt.

The garden is a mixture of various vegetables & fruit trees such as apple, lemon, orange, tangerine, peach, apricot, pear & grapefruit, that give fruit every year & many small newly planted fruit, nut trees & berry plants. It has a good soil for planting, some permaculture hills & we have never used any chemicals on our land, so all is clean & organic.

The animals are also an important part of this permaculture project. At the moment there are 15 goats in total, 11 of which are milking goats & some baby goats. The milk we have been using to make cheese & the manure is a great natural fertilizer for the garden. There are also around 12 chickens & some chicks. Most of the chickens are laying eggs.

The land is situated along the slope with some terraces suitable for planting, an area with a garden & the house, going down the slope until the small mountain spring, where there are few terraces for planting also.

The water comes from a borehole, so there is water all year round for drinking & for watering the garden. There is a solar system for hot water, electricity still comes from the mains. There is a satellite internet & a land line. The signal for the mobile phones is a bit further away from the land.

We have been running a project of making goats cheese, growing vegetables & fruit, & selling them at local markets or privately for more than 7 years now & we have a wish to find someone who would love to keep running the farm with all plants & inhabitants, because it is also their home. The place is also good for creating a rural tourism.

We are willing to sell the place with most of the equipment for the garden, pumps for watering & four-wheel drive Land Rover, if you wish. The price, depending on that, is negotiable.

We have put a lot of love & energy in creating this place, but now, with a small child growing, we feel that its time to make some traveling & make a new starting with some new ideas for new project in a new place.
