Old traditional farmhouse in Portugal's green center
Close to the forest, situated in the middle of vineyards, was the old, built of massive blocks of granite house in 2013 with modern comfort and converted from an ecological point of view.
The eight solar panels produce enough hot water for the kitchen and bathroom and to provide enough heat in the winter to run the floor.
The rainwater is collected in a cistern and used in summer for irrigation of the garden.
The old olive grove was rejuvenated in part, and supplemented by the planting of 100 young olive trees.
The 2000 square meter property is completely fenced and therefore "children - and pets" safe.
Special attention was paid to the wheelchair-accessible facility in the expansion. The whole house is designed with terracotta tiles and sills. Through the wide doors on the wheelchair user can comfortably move through the house.
The old granite walls were - where possible - to receive and re-grouting and to create a cozy atmosphere.
The bedroom has 2 elevated and movable beds (90 x 200), which allow an individual design of the room, thus providing plenty of exercise area.
The bathroom has a height adjustable wash basin, a disabled toilet / bidet and a walk in shower. The handles and the shower seat allow the guest with limited mobility independence in daily hygiene. The traditional wall tiles in blue / yellow / white make this room a true oasis.
The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, oven with grill, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, etc., the walls are dekoriert.Die with the typical Portuguese blue / white wall of pink granite tile countertop was made by local craftsmen from the neighboring village.
Located on the white table, guests can enjoy their meals in comfortable wicker chairs.
In the living area there is a comfortable sofa-bed (140cm x 200cm) can sleep well on the two guests. Of course there is also satellite TV and a small stereo.
Before the house is 120 square meters large terrace, which consists of a huge flat granite rocks and large granite slabs. Previously there was threshed the corn. There, guests can enjoy breakfast, sunbathing, barbecuing or conclude the evening with a glass of red wine. Here can be built on request for a small children's swimming pool.
Next to an old walnut tree (under which guests can enjoy the shade) is the garage and the washing machine.
The terrace is surrounded by old and young olive trees, some orange and lemon and grapefruit trees, a laurel hedge, palm trees, cacti and other native plants. Will be to the garden grew to its final beauty, but it still takes a couple of years.
