Five Bedroom Family Home with a well Established Tourist Business

Central Portugal Alvaiázere


Situated in the Leiria district in a very central position, this five-bedroom property comes with a large bar/restaurant already built. The house has three floors. Halfway between Lisbon and Portugal, it is an ideal place to capture many visiting tourists and local trade. Areas of local interest include Tomar, Coimbra, Conimbriga and the fabulous lakes of the River Zezere.

The ground floor has a large open plan living and dining area accompanied by a traditional Portuguese, two-meter-wide cast iron log burner. Within this space, two French doors lead onto a front terrace ideal for growing vegetables and flowers. On the other side of the house is a generously sized kitchen with an island worktop and fully fitted with all modern amenities, including a larger fridge freezer with ice and filtered water dispenser, granite surfaces, a new oven and dishwasher (all under guarantee). A pine staircase leads to the first and second floors from the open plan living area, comprising five bedrooms (three of which are en-suite, two with fitted wardrobes). This part of the house has wooden flooring throughout.

The ground floor leads out to a well-kept garden area bustling with

various fruit trees (lemon, peach, plum, apricot) and a bay tree,

birds of paradise and bamboo. A lavish 11x5 meter pool area with an outside shower and separate bathroom and shower block, all fenced from the property's extensive olive grove consisting of 60+ trees, harvested every year. The Olive trees yield an average of One hundred litres of extra virgin olive oil.

The olive grove has a license for movable structures (tents, teepees,

caravans), which offers a fantastic extra income.

The restaurant bar building is an already established business with

excellent Google reviews. Equipped with a good-sized working kitchen. The recently renovated bar is quite stylish, can seat up to 40 diners per sitting, and has male and female bathrooms.

This building also has the potential to be converted into two generously sized annexes, holiday lets or a very exquisite workshop. There is

also, a vast driveway/car parking space that has fig, plum and olive

trees running down either side with a small roundabout at the end. This

space has been used by the current owners hosting an artisan/local

market once a month.

Adjoined to the main house is a recently renovated annexe with another

Portuguese cast iron log burner and en-suite bathroom containing an

ultra-modern shower cabin with built-in radio and foot massager. 

The room next to this is a substantial traditional stone-built space that

currently has ten bunkbeds, custom built as an "Albergue" (hostel),

for pilgrims walking the Camino De Santiago Compostella as the property is only 300 meters from the trail as well as the Fatima trail (which

is the second most visited destination in Portugal). 

The room also adjoins an additional outside bathroom for guests. 

Officially listed as an established stop in the official guidebook by the author John Brierly the Albergue is a popular place to stay. There is also a sizeable gravelled area next to the Albergue, ideal for motor homes or car


A few extra details: Central heating (oil operated), solar panels linked

to the boiler system, an underground depository holding approximately

50,000 litres of water, a good-sized private balcony area, large

gravelled courtyard with generous log storage, three storage rooms, a well (ideal for running a pump system if you were to grow your crops),

fibre optic internet, utility room, a downstairs toilet with shower and another storage room that could be converted into a bedroom.

 Located in a very peaceful rural setting whilst sitting next to an access road with the small town of Alvaiazere just five minutes away. It has two supermarkets, a sports stadium, doctors, a pharmacy, a dentist, an osteopath, an excellent primary school, a petrol station, a large public indoor and outdoor pool, a gymnasium and various other cafes and restaurants.

 A family-run business/household for the past ten years

that unfortunately had to close due to the pandemic. However, the

property has been successfully rented throughout this time. The owners

have now retired and welcome someone else to discover this unique opportunity.
