This former restored farm (Quinta) is situated in the province Alentejo, at the edge of the nature area Serra de Monfurado, approx. 3km from the historic town Montemor-o-Novo and 500m from the village Reguengo. This is divided into three ground floor houses. During the restoration, sustainability is taken into account (the house is self-sufficient and is kept warm / cool by a heat pump), keeping the traditional style of the Alentejo.
