Hostel and housing for sale in Castrojeriz, Burgos
For sale: spectacular quality private hostel (with 3 shells rating) + housing.
Situated in the heart of the Camino Frances, in a traditional village, with a lot of history and charm, this hostel is the first one that you come across in the village, and is fully equipped with all services.
The property consists of two buildings separated by a lovely garden of 200 square meters. Total property size is 670 square metres.
All brand new. The whole site is a new construction, opened in September 2016. You can walk in and start running the business immediately!
Link to Spanish site with photos and more details: https://www.idealista.com/en/inmueble/81452390/
(You can change the language and Google Translate will give you a rough translation.)

I know that people often wonder why people sell an albergue that they have set up with such dedication. The reason for this particular sale is that one of the business partners has fallen in love with an Englishman and wants to move to England.

If you have questions about the hostel or the sale, you can post them here or PM me.
Thanks
Bryan

No questions. I'm tempted but my shopping is a couple of years away in reality.

It looks lovely. Good luck with the sale.

We stayed there at the Albergue Orion in May, 2017 in a double room. It really is a nice albergue. The pilgrim dinner served was Korean bibimbop, delicious.

The operation is large enough to at least break even, and the property looks very well maintained, and easy to maintain. Tempted to cash out and give it a try, but at 72 this would be a lot more work than I could handle on my own.

Yes, I think so too. This albergue would need at least 2 if not 3 people working their asses off in main season on that stretch Castrojeriz being one of the "end stages".
Some of the forum members that took stints as hospitaleros would know more (and @Rebekah Scott even more) but I assume that the first one to hire should be "multi-lingual" person possibly Spaniard???

oh that looks awesome. my wife and I are interested in living along the Camino to provide a supportive environment for pilgrims, too bad that place is too big and a bit out of our price range... we were looking at Viloria de Rioja and found a very manageable place but then found an article about how they are working on rerouting the path out of the town which is actually the original route and the town that Santo Domingo de La Calzada was born. anyone familiar with town or have update with this?

Thanks for the advice. And for disabusing me of the idea that being fluently bilingual in Spanish, and not bad in French would not be enough to keep me from having to hire someone to handle my non-English communications. And this would have to be run as a business, so I'll be grateful for any referrals to people who have fun cases rurales.
