Herdade da Mourela is located in the alto Alentejo, with magnificent views over the surroundings and a proximity of less than 500 meters to the charming town of Póvoa e Meadas, as well as a comfortable cycling distance of 4 kilometres to the idyllic swimming lake of Póvoa e Meadas.
With over 250 profitable olive trees, 2 buildings, own water through 2 wells, lots of big fig trees, shady cork oaks as well as other varieties of fruit trees, this property offers ideal conditions for many different uses: self sufficient living, livestock farming, community living (ideal for 2 parties) or a tourism project.
There are two buildings, one of which is registered as a habitation, built out of natural stones, with a footprint of 56 m2, and the other one is a farm building with 80 m2 built out of bricks.
The farm building can be legalised as a habitation through a building project, and both buildings can be expanded more or less depending on the purpose. For example, in a building project for tourism, both buildings can be expanded up to 250 m2 each, without actual obligation to use it as such.
Side note: The “official” registration of a small tourism project can be very interesting in terms of civil- and tax law advantages, including the social insurance.
The land was cultivated extensively through livestock farming in the past decades, which means that besides harvesting the land with more than 1'000 l olive oil, the owners kept sheep and horses to graze the land.
The habitation building was also turned into a stable, so it will have to be completely renovated.
The property is mostly flat and slightly sloping towards the North. The residential building is located on the higher part of the property, with an extraordinary view.
The wells have lots of water, but in case of more need for a garden or fruit tree plantations, a bore hole can easily be drilled.
The whole area is rich in water.
The property is located next to a small and very quiet paved road. Short walking distance to the town with basic amenities, say minimarket, basic medical care and cafés.
4 kilometres down the paved road you get to the well-known and developed lake of Póvoa e Meadas, with annual festivals, camping, cafés and restaurants as well as a good infrastructure for caravans and mobile homes.
15 minutes to the historic larger town of Castelo de Vide with its rich collection of international art. 15 minutes to Nisa.
30 minutes to the district-capital Portalegre. 2 hours to the airport of Lisbon.
