Property Description

Farmhouse and Land for Residential or Tourism Purposes 449,000 Euros

The house was built around 300 years ago, now converted and completely restored to offer either a high quality bed and breakfast guest house or a private family residence with abundant water supply to run a small holding. Currently run as a successful B&B with owner accommodation for the many walkers, cyclists and tourists visiting this increasingly popular tourism hub in the S. Mamede Natural Park. The owners have a contract with a British walking company which provides guests 7 months of the year. Each couple stays at least one week which provides an income of 900 euros. Though its location is secluded, it has an easy 150 metre new tarmac access and is on 2 of the municipal walking routes. It is being sold as the owners wish to retire. The property has scope for expansion with a large ruin on the land ( tourist government grants up to 50% are available) and space to erect yurts or wooden chalets.
