Full Description: SOLD - For more information check: www.farmforsaleinportugal.com Quinta do Pinheiro is a farm in Central Portugal, which has a pretty unusual house as it is built next to a rock and the living room has the rock inside, as well as the carpentry room. Back in the day we used to have whisky on the rocks on the rock during those hot summer afternoons. The quinta is adjacent to the river Seia with 30 acres. Its charm is enhanced by a stream and a river, with two waterfalls, the stream has a small natural pool. A part of the ground is flat and suitable for agriculture, another part is woody, and a part is rocky. The house is on the flat part, as well as a large barn of 200 mÂ².
