Herdade da Nespereira
Herdade da Nespereira is a magnificent historic estate that consists of 294 acres (119 hectares) and an exceptional 4 bedroom house. Peaceful seclusion and proximity to nature are hallmarks of this luxurious, exceedingly private estate. Nespereira is a gentle landscape surrounded by undulating hills and a wide valley with a river. The elevated position of the main house affords it sublime tranquility and panoramic views over the estate’s countryside.
The outstanding views are not obstructed by pylons as the electricity cables are subterranean. The paths surrounding the property and along the river are an ideal way to immerse yourself in nature. The land is near to a pretty rural hamlet and 15 kilometers from the beach.
