Nice old building with land, somewhat boring environment but good towns. Would require new build to reach potential.

Services none; towns 5 mins by regular train; better town 20mins train (last 8:30pm)

Access station next door; 45mins Perugia (Ryanair); 3h30 Rome (train); Rome/Bologna 2h15 car; 1h45 Florence/Ancona

Property new roof(!) and land; could build event space in field

Other Notes streetview
• whilst the climate appears to drop low, it's only for one month then highs at 16° for the other two winter two months
• next to the medieval hamlet of Montemigiano
• could be converted in phases with minimal inconvience
• whilst the road is 50m away over the railway, not busy and the property has land below and behind too
• includes 4000m2 of land (field on opposite side of lane) but 15000 more can be acquired
• needs a new wing, could build at bottom/south if large field (1ha) is acquired, or front/east into garden, but most likely for permission is back/west (which would be quieter and have more natural views) however that plot is expensive (€40k+ as ad #3) but would protect from potential neighbours if acquired together (or reserved for later)
• ugly little village but nice surroundings and towns
• 1600s
• 40/10 wimax €150 add 6mbps up for €40; 4G is good
• would need to use wireless to FTTC in umbertide as no VDSL?
• towns 10 mins
• 40mins to Perugia/lake Trasimeno; 1h to thermal spas
• Florence 1h45 Rome 2h30; coast 2h

Jacob Jay🎩 posted to Poll: an alternative approach?

#60 Institut Lamothe-Poulin sold at €65k. I'm going to proceed on registration of the co‑op ASAP so as to issue some preliminary membership contracts and actually know what solid commitments we have amongst us, rather than currently working on the assumption that only myself and a few others would be prepared.

I've earmarked the following for my next visits in the next week or two, so expect more videos!

  • #90 El Batán — in bad shape but cheap so the cost of local workers is probably ok given the excellent location and climate
  • #37 Minoterie de la Chalosse — whilst it has a similar work scope as Covilhã, is much smaller and natural next to a river / good village
  • #89 Complesso San Pietro — I'm in two minds as the countryside seems boring including the beach, good towns though


This is really all there is currently in the realm of reasonableness. Once contracts start being drawn up I'll evaluate more expensive properties, perhaps #78 Proença a Velha, #88 Alcoy. If you've leads or ideas, post them!
