Where Nature Heals
The Artisan Village provides an opportunity to own a hand-crafted home that is built entirely from natural materials, in a powerful rural setting, and part of the Vale das Lobas Nature and Health Sanctuary.
Sited in a beautiful river valley in the foothills of the Star Mountains of Portugal, Artisan Village is surrounded by 50 acres of diverse landscapes and natural ecosystems, rich in biodiversity, with 1km of river frontage, meadows, forest gardens, and granite outcrops, with stunning views in all directions.
Imagine a place with clean air, fresh water, and traditional farming, where the only sounds that will disturb your meditation are the trickling of water and the call of the golden oriole. Imagine a valley with Neolithic sacred sites, full of the power of wild nature, where just being here is a revitalizing experience.
You may choose and personalise three different types of dwellings: studios, cottages and villas, each with their own land, as well as access to public spaces – reception, farm-to-table resaurant, kids play zones, organic farm and natural swimming pool with changing rooms.
Buying an eco-home in Artisan Village is much more than just investing in a property. This is an opportunity to own your sustainable rural retreat home, to invest in the future that you really want for our planet, where humanity is living more in harmony with nature, and to receive a return on your investment.

Buying an eco-home in Artisan Village is much more than just investing in a property. This is an opportunity to own your sustainable rural retreat home, and to invest in the future that you really want for our planet, where humanity is living more in harmony with nature.
As the polarity that demands change develops and envelops us, we are being encouraged to make choices. How we invest our money, and where we decide to be based, are two of the most fundamental decisions. When economies and currencies become unstable, then real estate is the most secure and sensible investments. But even buying property can be a lottery. Will the value remain stable? Will the location remain safe, as the global situation develops?
The Vale das Lobas vision was founded on an awareness of the changes that are now upon us, and the need to create secure strongholds of peace. This location, in a remote mountain area, has a long history of community resilience, self-sufficiency, and deep collaboration with Nature. In the thirteen years since the projects inception, Vale das Lobas has become embedded within the community and the natural lansdcape, and together we share the goals of maintaining a free and independent lifestyle, based on our harmonious connection with the natural world.
Artisan Village is made up of twenty-six ecohomes. Our vision is that about half of these will be owned by people who wish to move here, and live permanently within the valley. The other owners will buy an ecohome as a safe investment, and to provide an insurance for them and their family for the future. In those cases, they can be rented out for short term stays, to allow more visitors to gain access to the courses, programs, and retreats at Vale das Lobas. These rental agreements will provide a good return on the buyers investment. In the fast changing world, where we now expect a free fall of the main currencies, we will be moving forward with an independent exchange system, based on tokens that can be traded outside the main economy, if it becomes necessary.
In all cases, buyers will have full ownership of their ecohome, with the right to resell, and the likelihood is that these gorgeous homes will become ever more popular in the future. So to buy an ecohome in Artisan Village can only be a positive step, especially if you want to move your savings out of the mainstream, and into a more conscious investment.
For interested buyers who do not yet have residency status in Europe, we have now developed an opportunity that benefits from the Golden Visa program for Portugal. If this is possibly for you, then please fill out the contact form below to receive more information.
