Vale de Seda has a small number of cafes while Fronteira has shops, a bank, health centre (doctors), schools (primary and secondary), kindergartens, sports facilities and numerous bars, cafes and restaurants. There is also a delightful river bank area with a cafe and restaurant, which is very popular in the summer. There are more extensive facilities further afield in Estremoz (39 km), Ponte de Sor (43 km) and Portalegre (49 km).
Quinta da Bela Vista is also well situated for enjoying the various sights and activities that this rural part of Portugal offers, such as walking, horse riding and cycling, and for visiting the nearby Portuguese historical and cultural sites, such as the Coudelaria at Alter do Chão (the national horse stud for the Lusitano breed).
Quinta is a stylish, detached, three bedroom villa set in 27 acres (11 ha) of level, fully fenced land. The rural location of the house and its slightly elevated position means it is very private, peaceful and has stunning views. The villa is spacious, has polished marble floors throughout, giving a timeless sense of space and style, and every room enjoys an abundance of natural light.
On the ground floor there is a large and sunny open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen (kitchen units and appliances to be fitted), a double bedroom (which alternatively could be used as a study or the kitchen could be placed here to maximise the lounge/dining space) and bathroom with power shower. From the lounge/dining/kitchen three sets of patio doors lead onto a large calçada paved terrace with an hourglass shaped swimming pool, giving plenty of space for entertaining Upstairs there are two spacious master bedroom suites both with roomy en-suite bathrooms and patio doors to the large covered balcony, which has stunning, panoramic views. The large attic is accessed from the landing.
On the practical side the villa is connected to mains electricity, a private borehole supplies water to the house and sewage is to a septic tank. All the patio doors and windows are in double glazed aluminium and the building is fully insulated. The whole house is heated by electric under floor heating and solar panels heat the water with an electrical water heater taking over during the winter months.
The property is set down a long sweeping driveway from the electrically operated entrance gates, well away from the tarmac road. The extensive level and fertile land is fully fenced, grassed and has numerous mature olive trees. The pasture is suitable for keeping horses, livestock or horticulture, or a mix of all three. There is one outbuilding and plenty of space for parking.
Quinta da Bela Vista offers peace, privacy and a well built home using top quality materials, all in a beautiful and unspoilt part of Portugal.
