The Main House
Although not large is very charming with many original features and the sun light really enhances the rooms. There is a lovely walled garden which on 2 sides has many extra rooms currently serving as an art studio, wine tasting room and offices.
In front of the house is a large courtyard area and ample farm buildings offering so much opportunity potential for a business in Rural/Equestrian Tourism and Wine Tourism.
In fact the farm still has a successful wine production business producing red and white wines. The vineyards have both Portuguese grape varieties and they also blend the grapes with other varieties from elsewhere. Over the years they have won many awards and are still providing wines to shops/supermarkets in Portugal and overseas. Some of the spaces were used for wine presentation and tasting, a small function room for private parties.
