General description

  • Holiday home
Partially restored low impact farmhouse with a magnificent view. It is located near a river in a bird protection zone, 3km away from the village an a 5 ha plot of land. As you see on the pictures, only 2 small houses have been restored so far. The main house is still in ruins. It is simple, most materials and furniture are also recycled or 2nd hand. There is no ele tricity yet, but a small solar panel and 1 small batterie that is sufficient for light, phone charge etc. With your sim card you have good internet coverage. Heating via wood stove. Water newds to be pumped with a generator. So it is ideal for people that love nature and the simple life and aren't disturbed by lacking the usual comfort of coty life.
And you will fall in love with the dog.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Big garden
  • A dog
As already described above, you should be a bit of a hands-on person. There are newly planted olive and other fruit trees and a few plants that need watering. Fire wood needs to be collected at times, depending on how hot you like it. The dog was abandoned in front of the house and is rather new to the place. But she is a 1 year old sweetheart and I fell in love with her in a blink. She does need some attention though and needs to be assured that thisnis her place and someone will ways came back to her and look after her. She is a mix of Portugese Podengo and...?
