Eco-homes 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.

We are developing an Artisan Village, a site with 26 sustainable houses build with ecological construction methods using natural and local materials. This village will be situated in a spacious area of riverside meadows, orchards, and rocky outcrops with stunning views. The Artisan Village is located right next to the restaurant and common areas will include a reception, kids play areas and a natural swimming pool.

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 construction program will begin early 2020, and the houses will be sold off-plan. To find out more and log your interest, please click here.
