Spanish village for sale for €260,000 – Watch video


The village has 44 houses, a hotel, a church, a school, a municipal swimming pool, but no… residents

Those with 260,000 euros will have the opportunity to buy an entire village in Spain. According to the BBC, it is the village of Salto de Castro, which is located on the border with Portugal in the province of Zamora and is a three-hour drive from Madrid. It even has many of the buildings you would expect to find in a small Spanish town.

The village has 44 houses, a hotel, a church, a school, a municipal swimming pool and even a barracks building that housed the civil guard. But what it doesn’t have are… residents since it has been abandoned for more than three decades.

The owner bought the village in the early 2000s, with the intention of turning it into a tourist spot. However, the economic crisis in the Eurozone did not let him implement his plans.

“The owner had the dream of having a hotel here, but everything was put on hold,” said Ronnie Rodríguez, of Royal Invest, the company representing the owner. “He would still like to see the project come true.”

On the Idealista website on which the property is listed, the owner, who is in his 80s, states: “I am selling the village because I am a city dweller and cannot maintain it.”

The news has attracted interest, with more than 50,000 hits since the village was put up for sale a week ago at that price. Now its price is €260,000, which proportionally corresponds to a studio apartment or a two-bedroom apartment in a good area of ​​Madrid or Barcelona.
