            Casa da D. Palmira


From the busy market town of Arganil take the road that heads towards Coja then follow it up into the hills. In a tiny hamlet, where that road ends and the mountains take over stands a traditional village house; four, maybe 5 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, plenty of living space and the sort of views you never get tired of looking at. Yes, it wants refurbishment, updating to bring it  to contemporary standards – perhaps a refit for the kitchen, an en suite to one of the bedrooms – but though it’s perfect for a DIY project  it’s already a comfortable home, sold fully furnished, and ready to move into, it’s even got a wood burning cooker.

It’s a very spacious building, still with traditional layout – ground floor storage, first floor accommodation and a full size, usable attic – secret rooms where you don’t expect to find them, doors which open onto terraces, hidden from view and shaded by vines. There is also a garden with fertile soil, enough to keep you busy but not so large as to take up all your time.

If you are looking for a quieter, slower way of life the location is perfect; a tiny community, 20 minutes from a bustling village that has shops, restaurants and bars, a very good market and a couple of excellent River Beaches. The county town of Arganil, where there are full services including schools, a small hospital, veterinary practice and everything else necessary for daily life is 35 minutes away.

Whilst an ideal house for full time relocation, the setting, rural, but accessible from the major road networks – Coimbra is an hour away, the Atlantic Coast is 90 minutes – both Lisbon and Porto are a comfortable drive – suggests serious potential for holiday accommodation; if not full time, if you just want a second income, it’s certainly roomy enough to combine a family home with some letting space.

If you are looking for a good sized country house with garden, one which needs a bit of work, this may be what you want. Superb location, realistically priced, with full services and good access – it’s worth viewing.
