Tucked away between the hills of the Serra do Cercal lies the secluded property Monte do Vale Porquinhas. This small country estate truly is a hidden paradise.
This Secluded Property is a small estate of 17,5 ha (43 acres) that is surrounded by nature. Despite a difference in altitude of 75 meters, including a waterfall of 32 meters, the estate is mainly rolling countryside and is surrounded by the mountains of the Serra. The vegetation consists of various species of trees including many cork oaks, a wealth of herbs and – especially in March and April – a wide variety of wildflowers.
In 2009 two small lakes were constructed of a total of 700 m2 for keeping the rainwater on the estate and to attract wildlife. There is also a possibility of constructing a larger lake on the property. You can reach this beautiful valley by a dirt road of approximately 5 km.
Monte do Vale Porquinhas is a very sustainable estate. In 2010 a new tracking device has been installed to upgrade the solar system. Water comes from a borehole. Gas is only used for hotwater and cooking, but facilities are provided for the connection of a solar boiler.
If you like remote this is the place to be. It is a quiet place where you can feel nature.
The estate is remote but not isolated, because the property is not far from the beautiful coast line and the beaches of the Alentejo Litoral.
Until recently the estate was used for tourism and was registered as an Alojamento Local. The first time as a Bed and Breakfast and the last couple of years as self catering holiday homes.
But the estate offers a lot of other possibilities such as for example Multifamily Use or as a Training Center.
This secluded property is one of the best kept secrets in one of the most remote parts of Europe.
