ARTISAN VILLAGE

Eco-dwellings in nature

How about calling Vale das Lobas your home? Are you looking for an investment property, with a preference for ecological and natural building? There could be no better choice than to buy an eco-house in the Artisan Village.

The Artisan Village is a fifty acre site composed of riverside meadows, orchards, forest gardens and rocky outcrops with stunning views. It will have 26 ecological dwellings build by sustainable construction methods, using natural and local materials. 

Each house has been designed for elegance and efficiency, south-facing, with a private garden and spectacular views of the Serra da Estrela mountains. Buyers will be entitled to live as full-time residents, or to rent their home to vacation guests through our booking and rental service.

There will be one-bedroom studios, cottages with 3 bedrooms and villas with 5 bedrooms. All houses will be built with Compressed Earth Blocks, an innovative construction method using earth. With cork insulation and heated by geothermal heating, these houses are truly sustainable. The waste water will be filtered in reed beds, and captured in lakes, carefully designed into the landscape to enhance biodiversity and provide irrigation.

The village includes a reception area, kids play areas and a natural swimming pool, and it is linked to  the riverside restaurant by a foot bridge. The construction program will begin early 2020, and the houses will be sold off-plan.
