Salto de Castro, a town located in Zamora, was for sale on idealista about a year ago. The empty village in Spain, located next to the border with Portugal, was purchased by Óscar Torres, for €300,000. However, after developing an architectural project for the complete rehabilitation of the village and some bureaucracy with the local authorities, Salto de Castro is again up for sale, but this time for double the price: €580,000 euros. And there are already interested parties: an Arab group and an American group, according to idealista.
Romuald Rodríguez, from Royal Invest, the company that represents the current owner, told idealista: “For now, we have received offers from Saudi Arabia and the United States (specifically from a group in Miami)”. He added that they received offers of up to €600,000, so the price increase "is more than logical".
The village, next to a reservoir and bordering Portugal, has 44 houses, five of which are independent. It also has a bar, church and school with several classrooms, as well as a hostel with 14 rooms, a cafeteria and laundry room. According to the owners, a license for rural tourism can be obtained for the project.
There is also a former Civil Guard barracks, a swimming pool and sports areas.
