    Description

    Small Holding with 2 bedroom "Earth" (Taipa) construction House and Small/Medium sized garden.
    A guest house to the rear (Separate to house) would suit a couple.
    Plus a Caravan for 2 extra guests.

    .5 Ha (5000sqM/ 1 Acre) land with Olive and some Fruit trees, vegetables following permaculture principles..

    The house is totally Off-Grid and power from Solar, heat from Wood and Sun, Water from Well and Spring.

    I have one Son of 16 years who visits for a few weeks at a time and during Holidays.

    I have an old ankle injury so require a little help in garden / land and with some building?

    We are 20Km from Odemira and 25Km from the sea (about 25/35 mins), Large lakes nearby for swimming. International communities all around however predominantly Portuguese.
    If you like a peaceful quiet remote location in nature here is for you?
