Happy Bargain Friday! Bare-bones but breathtaking, in the heart of Spanish wine country, at the foot of a castle — for less than $10k!
For the end of Dream Week, focusing on ways you could actually make your dream of living abroad come true with income-generating properties, I have one last proposition for you!
Imagine this: This little house is at the foot of a four-star resort hotel, surrounded by premium wineries, and an eight-minute drive from Peñafiel, a bustling town with yet another castle. What if you moved here and became a wine tour guide?? You could spend your days teaching guests about the history of the area and characteristics of the terroir as you visit bodega after bodega, come home to sweeping vistas and a cozy fire, and on your time off you could travel Europe – or even rent out your little cottage while you were away to fund your ventures! For the price, it could be a very realistic plan!
I could also see an artisan moving here and using it as a place to produce art while maintaining low living costs! You could spend your time creating art or working on passion projects instead of working just to keep the roof over your head. A little idealistic perhaps, but I must say it’s tempting!
The catch: no water in the house directly – but for the price, it might still be a possibility for an adventurous soul, or someone with a little extra cash to connect to the mains.
From the listing on Idealista:
