After buying the property in April 2004, plans were developed to renovate the Herdade. First the intention was to start a Turismo de Habitação or a Turismo Rural in the old farm and finance the renovation with a subsidized loan. However reflection during the summer stay, made us decide to do a minimal restoration with own funds. The already developed plans and drawings had to be changed.

The small house in front of the main house will be turned in a room for a generator.
