8 June 2016: farming in the city, Vila Real

Casa Agricola de Levada, Vila Real, Portugal is one of two last remaining farms in the city. Time and change means that the original farm is now much smaller and the owners have renovated the stone cottages and barns and established a bed and breakfast. There are trees and a vineyard and, in season, guests can help themselves to fresh fruit and vegetables.

All other farmland has been sold to supermarkets, petrol stations and big condominiums and Casa de Levada is now the largest private green area in Vila Real.
