Quinta do Pé – PD0379
Quinta do Pé
For sale is a serene and secluded riverside quinta, located in the stunning Ceira Valley, hidden from sight by Pine and Ash, very pristine and very, very lovely; yet within easy reach of a busy little market town.
Access is via 600 meters of good un-made road. There is a small, thoughtfully renovated schist cottage, the ground floor of which is a storage area, above are 2 rooms and a basic kitchen.
Adjoining is a single storey building, customarily, home to an alambique, the distilling equipment still to be found in many old country houses, though, given the property wants further adaptation, here, it’s a space which could be put to a different use.
The farm’s fertile land runs to just over 53,000 m2 (13 acres/5.3 hectares) of mixed habitat – tree cover and rough grazing on the higher ground, established Vines and sites for crop growing further down; irrigation is not a problem, water is supplied through traditional levada, a flood gate controlling the flow as required. Also included is a generous stretch of river frontage, complete with a beautiful dam – clean, pure water, perfect for swimming and fishing. This rare and quiet place, private and surrounded by nature, is ideal for a self-sufficient/off-grid life, either full time, or as a holiday retreat.
The nearest village, where there is a cafe/bar, is two kilometers away; the area has an interesting history, local traditions are kept and a lot goes on, events, both cultural and sporting take place most weeks over the summer months. The closest town is Góis where there are full services, including shops, restaurants, banks, petrol station, medical center and a school. Road access to the major cities, Coimbra (with its main line rail connections), Porto and Lisbon is good, all are a comfortable drive, as is the Atlantic coast, recognized for its beaches and surfing.
No photograph can do this quinta justice, come and have a look, you won’t regret the journey.
