Artisan Village

Eco-homes in nature


Artisan Village is a nature park of more than 50 acres of riverside meadows, orchards, and rocky outcrops with stunning views. We are building seven one-bed studios, ten two bed cottages and nine four bed villas. The village will also have a restaurant in the restored water mill, a reception, kids play areas and a natural swimming pool.

These dwellings have been designed for elegance and efficiency, south-facing, with private gardens and spectacular views of the Serra da Estrela mountains.

They will be built with Compressed Earth Blocks, local granite, traditional clay tiled roofs and cork insulation, and heated by geothermal heating. They will also have the choice of an open fire place or wood burning stove to provide that special focus on winter evenings. The waste water systems will be filtered in reed beds, and captured in lakes, carefully designed into the landscape to enhance biodiversity  and provide irrigation.

The construction program will begin in September 2019, and the dwellings will be sold off-plan. We are now preparing all the details to be launched in a new website.

Buyers will be entitled to live as full-time residents, or to rent their home to vacation guests through our booking and rental service. For buyers looking for an investment property, with a preference for ecological and natural building, there could be no better choice than to buy an eco-dwelling in The Artisan Village.
