Superb Plot of land for sale in Alentejo Portugal. Superb Plot of land for sale in Alentejo Portugal Euroresales Property ID – 9824369 Property information: The site, Al Caria de Vaca, is 60 hectares in total, stretching away from the village of São Teotónio in a N/W direction. The terrain is rolling hills with the majority south facing, dry at the top and wet at the bottom with a small stream running through the site. The S/W corner has a section of cork oak forest and the lowest part of the site lends itself to the construction of a lake. The climate in this special part of Portugal is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Summer day time temperatures range from 24ºC to 30ºC and in winter daily highs are from 16ºC to 20ºC. At night in winter the temperatures rarely go below 10ºC. 265 days of sunshine is the yearly average! The Legendary Days Lda has put together a scheme that will maintain the rural atmosphere and preserve the natural beauty and contours of the site. Whenever possible we have taken our design cues from the rustic local construction style. We have carefully chosen the position of 18 detached Villas, and 36 Villa, to be built on the property. Each house is located on a nicely sized plot facing south. By using the height differences to the best advantage, each property feels quite private and removed from the others on the site. Many of the properties will have a view over the lake which will fill up behind a dam built at the lower part of the development. Along the south facing slope, to the lake in the centre of the property, we will construct 34 Townhouses, a Clubhouse building, Shops and a Bar/Restaurant with a terrace partly situated above the lake. Furthermore sport facilities like swimming pools, tennis courts, golf driving range, golf putting green, fishing, etc, will be included. The Clubhouse will serve as the focus point of Al Caria de Vaca. A sauna, Jacuzzi, plunge pool and showers, will all be located near the big swimming pool, as well as a fitness room and multi-purpose lounge area. Al Caria de Vaca, villa & leisure resort is located 95 km from Faro International Airport (Algarve), a spectacular 1 hour drive away. To the north is the popular coastal town of Milfontes, apprx. 15 minutes away, which is on the Mira estuary - its Moorish Fort still stands ready to stop any hostile craft entering the waterway! The A125 is the main road to Odimira which is at the top of the land, with another access from St Teotonio to midway into the land. Additionally at some points of the land you can view the sea. To the west is the cliff top coastal town of Zambujeira, approx 15 minutes away, with its spectacular coves and beaches. To the east, approx. 10 minutes away, is the old farming town of São Teotónio and the start of the Monchique mountain range beyond. The Alentejo province has the lowest population density in Southern Europe, miles of empty beaches, coves and dunes capes facing the Atlantic Ocean give testimony to this! Nearby Fishing Lake: A dam will be constructed to provide a lake with a surface area of 2.5 hectares. The average depth will be about 6 meters and the lake will have a supply of fish suitable for sport fishing. The banks will be landscaped and well planted with a fascinating one kilometre walk, marked around the lake and the forest below the dam. About the area: The Alentejo province is known as the garden of Portugal, and for very good reasons. The coastal plain which borders the side has been the subject of a new law passed at the end of 1995. It now has the status of protected parkland. Over 750 species of plants are found here, 50 of which are very rare. The cork oak forests are the largest left in the world and the animals on the parks’ protected list include: Lynx, Golden Eagles, Black Storks and Otters. The area has changed little since the Romans farmed the land and its new protected status ensures that it will not become a victim of the bland development that has become so common along Europe’s south coast. Portugal is situated on the south western tip of the Iberian Peninsula in Europe. The country joined the European Common Market in 1986 and is now part of the European Monetary Union. The actual Euro money has been distributed from the first of January 2002. Portugal’s stable democratic and liberal political climate has stimulated the national economy immensely. One of the sectors that profited most from the booming economy is the Real Estate Market in the southern region. Due to its mild and sunny climate, the coasts are a paradise for golfers and for all sorts of water sports, like sailing, diving and surfing. For that reason there is a great interest from local and foreign investment groups to invest heavily in Urban Projects, near the beaches, on a larger scale.
