In the Arouca Geopark, internationally recognised for its richness and diversity as a Geological Heritage site, there is a small village. It consists of just eleven stone houses, typical of the north-eastern region of Portugal, and arranged like a waterfall down the mountain, and they are in search of a new owner.
“With all the potential for ecotourism or rural tourism, this town is just 15 minutes from Vila de Arouca, near the Frecha da Mizarela waterfall, the Serra da Freita and the Passadiços do Paiva, which have won various awards, including the prestigious World Travel Awards,” explains real estate agency Luximo’s Christie’s International Real Estate in its statement.
The original outline of the houses can be used and integrated perfectly “into a charming, luxury project with unique conditions for nature-lovers to enjoy,” the agency points out.
Ricardo Costa, CEO of Luximo’s Christie’s, highlights the “interest and the good business opportunity the village represents, in a context where tourism surrounded by nature have conquered many enthusiasts in this country and abroad.”
The manager adds, “the portion of the population that seeks to explore nature, taking contemplative walks in the countryside, immersed in sumptuous landscapes and breathing truly pure air, has increased in this country.”
The CEO also reveals another aspect which contributes to the growing number of foreign tourists who choose Portugal to visit, live or invest. “Our country is seen as a safe harbour,” he concludes.
