Old farm buildings with large plot of land with approved architectural project for a 4 star tourist village, also approved by Turismo de Portugal (the project awaits the approval of specialties in the chamber), located on the hillside of Afife, Viana do Castelo, with 11 parking spaces.

The approval is detailed as follows:

Building 1 for services and areas to support the village, composed of:
Ground floor: reception, changing rooms for employees and storage.
1st floor: Room for breakfast and pantry.

Building 2 composed of:
Ground floor: 3 bedrooms, one of them suitable for disabled guests, TV room and interior courtyard.
1st floor: West balcony, living room, dining room integrated with kitchen and a terrace to the south.

Building 3 composed of:
4 units of T1 (living room, pantry, suite and toilet).

Building 4 composed of
5 units of T2 (living room, pantry, suite, bedroom and wc).

This is a fantastic investment opportunity to convert these old farm buildings and land into a tourism project.

Viana do Castelo is one of the most beautiful cities in the north of Portugal. Its involvement in the Portuguese Discoveries and, later on, cod fishing shows its traditional connection to the sea.

Viana do Castelo is easily accessed from Porto, or from Valença for those coming from Spain. The special geographical situation of the city, next to the sea and to the mouth of the river Lima, can be seen from the Santa Luzia hill. This stunning view and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a revivalist building by Ventura Terra, of 1898, is one of the main attractions of the city. Viana is rich in palaces emblazoned with coats of arms, churches and monasteries, monumental fountains and water features that constitute a wealth of heritage worth visiting.

Broadband is widely available in Portugal and is known as 'banda larga'. It is considered to function better than broadband services in the UK due to the fact that Portugal was one of the last countries to embrace broadband technology and thus has a system with newer design and technology. There are several service providers offering ADSL, fibre and wireless services in Portugal to the residential and the professional markets.

Portugal's second city Porto, traditional Portugal at its finest without the crowds of Lisbon.

The rambling old town forms the heart of the city, with beautiful buildings adorned with tiles and sloping, cobbled streets. The Douro river underlines the city, with Vila Nova de Gaia just over the bridge.

While property close to the river has always proved popular, the centre is now being rediscovered by both tourists and property investors.

How to Get There?

Porto has its own airport "Francisco Sa Carneiro". The airport is located 11 kilometres north of the centre of Porto.

The airport has excellent onward transport connections whether by bus, tram or car. It is connected to the city centre by the metro line with a regular service from 6.00 to 01.00.


Porto has quite moderate temperatures all throughout the year, making this an ideal place to visit at anytime.

Be Sure Not to Miss

Igreja de São Francisco – Far more than a Gothic church, the unique Baroque style interior design of the Igreja de São Francisco makes it the most prominent Gothic monument in the entire of Porto.

We recommend visiting the Igreja de São Francisco to witness the sheer extravagance of the church's ceiling, walls and altarpieces.

River cruising is the ideal way to admire the scenery of the Douro river. The Douro flows from Northern Central Spain to Porto and the region is truly enchanting.

These cruises will cater to all tastes and ensure that you experience the very best of this wonderful part of Portugal.

Ponte Luis 1 Bridge - One of the most iconic and recognisable structures in all of Porto, the Ponte Luis 1 Bridge offers visitors the most scenic views of both Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia.

If you choose to cross the river to Vila Nova de Gaia, there are plenty of port cellars that can be visited and toured.

Why Buy Properties in Porto?

The growing appeal of Porto as a weekend destination, thanks to cheap flights, is encouraging buyers to contemplate city life instead.

The surge in popularity Porto is currently experiencing is likely to continue, raising the demand for properties in the region.

Investing in property within Porto could be a wise move as property values are likely to soon increase.

What Can You Buy Here?

A wide range of properties are available throughout the region of Porto. Close to the city centre you can expect to find a selection of smaller traditional houses and apartments available.

As you start to move away from the city centre and larger contemporary villas, modern apartment complexes with swimming pools and a plots of land become available. 

Some of the most popular places to buy properties in Porto include the beach town of Foz do Douro, Vila Nova de Gaia and Aveiro and of course the city centre.
