Benfeita 20 September 2012

Today we met up with Diana to look at the place at Benfeita that she had mentioned previously. There are five similar ruins all for sale for between 22 and 40 thousand euros. We thought the best plan for someone (not us!) would be to buy the whole valley for 100,000E, renovate the five ruins, put some yuts and a swimming pool on the flat valley bottom, and market it for holiday lets.

The five small ruins are all spaced along the valley side looking down onto the flat valley bottom.

Inside one of the ruins. They are tiny but they each have a ground floor and a first floor, so you could have one living area and one bedroom, ideal for a holiday let.

On the otherside to where the ruins are there is a small stream and a waterfall. The water is of good quality and suitable for drinking.

There is also a small mill ruin on the other side of the stream, but this appears to come under different ownership and may not be for sale?

Alex and Diana.

Although a lovely spot, we did not feel that this project was for us.
