In the Sierra de Los Ancares, this exceptional property is located. It consists of four buildings, in a different state of conservation, located on a plot of 39 hectares. The environment is of a unique beauty and guarantees to live in the midst of nature without any burden of modern life.
What buildings does this Los Ancares property have?
A stone house on two floors, with an area of 220 m2 each. In total 440 m2.
The ground floor of the house is dedicated to animal housing mainly, as was done in most rural homes in Galicia. There is also a traditional old wood stove.
On the upper floor, we find a large distributor that gives access to 6 bedrooms, a living room, a modern kitchen and a bathroom. This house needs to be conditioned to the taste of the new owners, but it is full of possibilities. And with enough space to widely accommodate a family or a group of friends who want to use this property as a vacation plan.

And, finally, a warehouse built in stone, also to reform, with an approximately surface of 100 m2. In total, about 680 m2 of built surface and likely to be used.

Finding an area of 390,000 m2 in Galicia is not a rarity, it is almost a miracle. The possibilities offered by a farm as well as investment and in terms of exploitation or cultivation are incomparable.
What is special about Los Ancares?
The region of Los Ancares was declared by the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2006. According to the Xunta de Galicia, “It occupies 6% of the area of the province of Lugo, including three municipalities: Navia, Cervantes and Becerreá.” More villages and parishes corresponding to them.
Among other figures of protection, is Zone of Special Protection for the Brown Bear and National Hunting Reserve.
With more than 1,600 meters of unevenness, the intricate hydrological network that drains the Navia River and the nature of the geological materials (granitic pluton, among others), coexist with the variety of geomorphological formations, of glacial and fluvial origin. There are also small calcareous outcrops with the consequent structuring of the landscape and vegetation. This increases the structural heterogeneity of the ecological mosaic of the region.
It highlights the presence of important forests of oak and birch. And, among others, holly trees: the magic tree of the Celts. These species coexist together with agropastoral means of great ecological interest and with the traditional practice of extensive livestock farming. The cover peat bogs, of great ecological importance and intrinsic value for palaeolimnology also enrich the whole. As for the fauna, the reserve houses species of high value for conservation. Highlights include the crayfish (Austropotamobius pallipes) as well as the existence of populations of wild ungulates.
