Notes ✧ plans for conversion to hotel
✦ 4500m2 garden directly in front (south), additional land/groves down to track and across could probably be acquired
✦ 170m2*2==340 house on road
✦ main building 500m2*3==1500 needs floors and roof
✦ 170m2 side building
✦ 350m2 road building
✦ all except house needs new roofs, plus floors, having span of 12m, fine for bonded timber i-beams
✦ once daily bus to Lisbon outward at night and back in the morning (3h30)
✦ once daily train Lisbon–Badajoz (3h30) with a change, out in the morning and back in the evening (inverse of bus); when the AVE reachs there I would expect services to be increased although the new highspeed line will be 1h south

✦ fiber in Portalagre so if nto allready would soon be available
