Property info

A bit of history: "Casa de Telégrafos", is how this house is popularly known, in Vallehermoso, due to the fact that there was the telegraph office and the telegraph operator's house, from 1930 to the 70s, (approximately ), that this service was withdrawn from the village. As of that date, the family regains its possession, in a dilapidated state. In 2001, after the corresponding negotiations and family agreements, Pedro Eloy and Gloria took possession of the house, beginning their rehabilitation in successive summers, from 2011 to 2015, which ended, from that point on, until December. of 2.016, it is used in furnishing, equipping, dressing, and corresponding procedures, in order to "register" it as a Vacation Home.
