Due to recent housing proposals and legislation made by the Portuguese government, to solve the housing shortage as well as the drastic rise of property prices in the Algarve, Togofor Homes is exploring the southern part of the Alentejo (Baixo Alentejo) and has recently opened its first office in Ourique, Beja.
The southern Alentejo (Baixo Alentejo) covers Almodôvar towards Ourique, Alvito in the west and Moura, Beja, Serpa and Mértola in the east. Beja is the municipality (council).
The Alentejo is a region of unexpected and unspoiled nature, where time slows down - especially in the heat of the summer. It offers beautiful and diverse landscapes with wide open views, rolling hills, cattle and of course the well-known black pigs ‘porco preto’ grazing happily in pastures. Reminiscent of Tuscany with panoramic landscapes and never-ending fields, this region is rich in culture and historic treasures which can be seen in several towns and villages. You will find never-ending plots of land – ideal for horses and animals, rural tourism, wineries, orchards, plantations of cork and olive trees - all within natural tranquillity. The small villages and towns are cosy and social with many annual festivals which are very important, not only for the locals to get together.
Starting next to the reservoir at the river MIRA near to Ourique we can present a very interesting guesthouse with its own lake access, located in the natural park.
A fabulous location at the reservoir and set within a beautiful environment for natural lovers.
Not far from that it is interesting to explore the archaeological sites of Castro da Cola which are located near to the Santa Clara reservoir with good walking tracks and beautiful surroundings not far from the west coast and Odemira.
Ourique is a small and lovely town nominated for the best black pork in the Alentejo. Surrounded by large rural plots and a big lake.
This is a very large agricultural farm with its own water and option to build.
Another large estate is located near the lake and Ourique with owners’ house, stables, and paddocks:
A fantastic opportunity to buy a property with main house, stables, paddocks, large plot, and ruins in un-spoiled nature near to Ourique town.
Going north towards the town of Aljustrel you will find huge plots and big agricultural farms with cattle and horses:
Land for agricultural purpose or rural tourism:
Large Agricultural and Equestrian Estate.
Next, to Beja with its historic areas and breathtaking views - the municipality of the southern Alentejo:
A vast, traditional townhouse located near the castle in the historic part of Beja.
Circling from Beja towards Serpa and Mértola - two fantastic and totally different properties could be of interest:
Ecological guesthouse plus owners’ house on a huge plot near Serpa town.
Returning to Mértola the circle closes in the south of the Alentejo with a historic town in a beautiful environment:
A palace for investment on a large country estate with a wine boutique and lots of potential.
Part II of the Alentejo route with properties will follow soon and introduce wineries and good restaurants….
