Zen Vouga: Quinta do Fundo de Vila

Description

Zen Vouga, the Villa Bottom Estate, was founded in 1744, although there are records of a Roman villa (of which there is no trace). It has about a total hectare of surface and is situated in a quiet and idyllic place.

In the year 2018 Quinta was extensively renovated, with significant improvements in the generation of energy through renewable sources (photovoltaic solar panels and thermal solar panels, as well as heat recuperators) and the insulation of the dwellings (new doors and windows with glass double with thermal cut).

It is located on the south bank of the Vouga River valley and is composed of four dwelling buildings, old wine and olive presses as well as wine cellar, canastro, swimming pool and covered porch with wood oven, small kitchen and grill. The granite and wood of the region are the predominant raw materials on the walls and ceilings of the two oldest houses, which were recently rehabilitated.

The farm is located on three terraces, with three terrains adjoining it. It has three mines of water excavated in the stone and serve of a stream that passes right next to it. In front of the land below (large, approximately one hectare) is a small spontaneous forest, one of the most biodiverse in the region.

There is also a nice indoor swimming pool with toilet (with copper and zinc ionization, almost no chlorine), as well as a stone grill near the pool area, another on the porch, and a traditional wood-fired oven.

The farm is in a typical Portuguese village, modest and with few inhabitants, where traditional subsistence agriculture abounds. All this is located in a pleasant environment, in direct contact with nature.

Pets are welcome with prior agreement of the owner.
