The property is situated in 8.1 hectares (about 20acres) of land. The land is in the form of a valley with the house in an elevated position. Looking down the valley from the veranda are two narrow lakes.

Above the house there is a designated environmental area, which is mainly populated with eucalyptus trees and a smaller number of cork trees. These trees bring in a small income every ten years or so. Their main benefit is to shelter the property form the north, creating a micro-climate around the valley. Other oak trees are becoming established in other areas to the land.

Two lakes at slightly different levels attract a variety of birds throughout the year. Each lake is replenished with rain water running off the valley over the winter. The upper lake fills first and over-spills to the second lake via a concealed channel.

This is separately available for 285,000. This price will be discounted if sold with the main property.

The villa is in Beja province in the Alentejo. The nearest village is Garvo and a larger town Ourique is 12 km distant. This area of the Alentejo is noted for its slow pace of life and it is in marked contrast to the brasher tourist ridden neighbouring Algarve. Many british, dutch and german people have settled in the locality giving many opportunities for socialising if one wishes it. The Alentejo authorities have learned from the mistakes of the Algarve and further rural development has become very difficult, the administration wish to keep the traditional look and feel of the countryside.

The local village of Garvo offers a range of basic shops such as a mini-market, bakers, pharmacy, hardware store together with a post office/ council office. There are a range of bars and simple country style restaurants. Just outside the village is Funcheiro railway station which offers easy links North to Lisbon or south to the Algarve.

Close by is Ourique here a greater range of shops are available. It has three banks and two small supermarkets, pharmacies, opticians, a library, cinema an so on.
