About the area:
The property is in the popular Raposeiras area of the beautiful old village of Santa Barbara de Nexe, perhaps best known for its bell tower, a landmark sitting on top of a 400-year-old white walled church which can be seen from miles away. It serves as inspiration for many artists who've painted it and its beautiful surroundings.
The village itself, which is set on the site of a Bronze Age hill fort, has most essential facilities including newsagents, a market, a post office and a large supermarket as well as a number of restaurants and bars.
During the day, you can take a gentle stroll through the village, admiring its Gothic architecture or venture further afield to the rolling countryside and surrounding villages.
