Environment ✧ hilly plateau with woods and streams; 1h coast

Access ✧ 25mins drive to town, + regular busses 1h Coimbra, 3h30 Lisbon, 2h30 Porto changing

Notes ✧ rejected for too many minus points
✦ Village in the Serra do Caramulo has many abandoned sanatoriums having been famous for its nature and fresh air, some converted to hotels/hostels and there's apparently strong support as the village has lost its purpose and wants to redevelop.
✦ closer to nature and the coast as compared Covilha, but weather and access are not as good
✦ whilst the price should come down, it is a high initial capital requirement, the interior would probably however still have rooms in a useful layout thus not require significant work for this
✦ beaches 1h drive and and Porto 1h15, so good for occasional daytrips
✦ local town is small, no others within reasonable distance
✦ as a primary hub is too cold with long winters and inaccessible, but potential as a mini-hub
✦ on a quiet lane amongst a few other houses with unobstructed view over valley at 800m altitude
✦ 3500m2 of sloping land with some trees for garden and veg
✦ could have a good south facing conservatory
✦ 15mins drive to two stream swimming spots, 45mins to bigger rivers
✦ walks on doorstep but not not much else
