Quinta do Alardo e Casa da Comenda
The Quinta do Alardo and Casa da Comenda are two realties of great natural and historical relevance, situated in Castelo Novo, historic village of Portugal. Although two, they are part of the same property. Nevertheless, they must be refered to separately. The grounds of Quinta do Alardo sum up 11 368 m2. In the past, it was designated as the Alardo Natural Park. The grounds are flat, with some large granite terraces. There are some natural springs, including a water mine, and a granite storage tank. An important Portuguese architect has already designed a project for 2 houses in the Quinta do Alardo, which has been approved by the town hall. The Casa da Comenda is part of the property and has great historical relevance. It was built in the sixteenth century, with influences of the Manuelino and Mannerist styles. This house is situated at the top of Castelo Novo and enjoys privileged views of the village, the valley and the Gardunha Mountains. An excellent investment.
