Created in the former Marvao/Beira train station, offers to all young hearted visitors the fun experience of living in an industrial era station, to More discover the Natural Park where it is situated and the traditional "Raianos" culture of the Portuguese/Spanish border in Alto Alentejo. With the capacity to host 24 people, Train Spot Guesthouse offers a wide range of accommodations which can fit different budgets and needs, offering great comfort about a price of a hostel, ranging from rooms with shared bathroom, rooms with private bathroom to apartments with a private garden. Breakfast is served daily from a regional menu and can be enjoyed at the common spaces - kitchen, lounge, terrace, gardens or even while sitting on the train tracks. Situated on a quiet Beira village, Train Spot is only a few driving minutes away from the mediaval town of Marvao (the highest one in Portugal), Castelo de Vide, the Roman ruins of Ammaia, Sever river natural pools, and many other magical places in Marvao. Throughout the year Train Spot organizes different cultural events at the station, open to the general public, from music concerts and local artist exhibitions to traditional gastronomic events. On request, the guesthouse can organize various activity packages for guests: horse riding along the Serra de Sao Mamede range, learning how to make bread in a wood oven, walks along the ancient Smugglers trail, or just having an Alentejo snack.
