Next to the apartment is the ‘horreo’ which is a fine example of one of these. The roof needs a bit of attention.

The 2 external barn areas are huge and have great potential as garage/storage areas, additional accommodation, party locations, workshops, yoga studio or any number of things.

The land is mainly grass and fruit trees with a dedicated vegetable patch. The land slopes down to the river which borders the property on one side. The land could be used for animals, fruit trees, vegetables or a mixture of them all.

The hostel and apartment were created in 2016 and the whole house (including the old house) was re-roofed, insulated and tiled at the same time. The whole building was also re-wired. Water is from a dedicated spring. Although the house is currently in 3 distinct parts, it is possible to link up all 3 parts using existing doors and openings.

Casa Xica has operated as a hostel for Camino pilgrims since 2017 and in 2019 had 600 pilgrims spend the night there. It benefits from a southerly aspect so has the sun until 16.30 even in the depths of Winter.

There are opportunities to continue the hostel business as it is now, or grow it using some of the unused space. There are also opportunities to develop a self catering business which is very popular in this area and will be even more so post Covid. The property also has enough land to be able to be self sufficient with animals and fruit and vegetables.

The property is 3km from Trabada which has a supermarket, bar/restaurant, bank, chemist, newsagent, post office and hairdresser.
