This traditional Andalucian cottage has superb kerb appeal online which helps it appeal to many tourists who are also awed by the spectacular views and beautiful swimming pool.  The property has a tourism licence and is currently a very successful holiday let for nine months of the year with the owners using it for the rest of the year.

Key information: The total built area is 137M2 and the plot size is 3,725M2.  There are 3 good size double bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms (with the master bedroom being en-suite).  The very private pool is heated via solar and measures 8M x4M.  The cottage may be traditional but there are many modern comforts that make this character cottage a comfortable and desirable home (see more about this below).


Due to changes to the Andalucian land law, smaller parcels of land can no longer be segregated.  This means the property is being sold with a share of a larger parcel of land rather than the land specifically on which the house sits.

The boundaries of the land are secure, clearly shown and the neighbours respect the boundaries.  The land around the house is for the sole use of the owners however, from the perspective of the Catastro, the larger parcel of land is shown as being shared between three owners - this house and its two neighbours.

In practice, it means the house and land can be enjoyed without any issue and the neighbours understand the boundaries and have no interest in this particular parcel of land. It is simply from a legal position, the owners own a third of a larger parcel of land on which sits this house.

The views are exceptional and highly sought after in the geographical area.  You have the rolling patchwork of arable farmland in the foreground that changes colour with the seasons with olive and almond trees that break up the farmer’s fields. In the middle distance are the magnificent mountains ranges that surround the Malaga Lakes and El Chorro Gorge and behind those, the Serrania de Ronda mountain peaks that are often snow peaked in winter.  If you look South, the Mediterranean Sea can be clearly seen and this is the coastline of Western Malaga city and Torremolinos.

High specification features that bring this traditional Andalucian cottage into modern times:

♦  Newly fitted kitchen with high gloss units and new appliances such as an impressive range cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

♦  Underfloor heating powered via solar panels.

♦  Solar hot water to the house.

♦  Heated pool via solar.

♦  Back-up heat pump for when there is the occasional cloudy day and the heat pump is needed to support the solar panels.

♦  Beautifully styled and decorated throughout to include bespoke built-in storage cupboards.

♦  More recently planted trees mix with one old protected oak and several protected black pines.  The fruit and nut trees include; lime, orange, apricot, pomegranate, almond, pistachio and fig.

♦  More recently planted tree lined driveway with Magnolia and Jacaranda trees.

♦  New air conditioning units (cooling and heating).

♦  New water deposit (for back up water), stored in case the mains has to be turned off for repairs to water pipes in the road, as an example.

The new and stylish furniture/contents offer a ready-to-go option to buyers:

Apart from personal items, the owners are prepared to sell the beautifully presented property as seen. Ready-to-go so it can be instantly enjoyed as a home or holiday let.  If this is desired, an inventory will be drawn up by the sellers and a total sum of money attributed to the items as a whole.  2nd hand contents in Spain are not subject to purchase tax, so the inventory of contents would be processed alongside the purchase of the house by the buyer’s lawyer but they would only pay purchase tax on the house.


♦  1.4km/2 mins’ drive from the hamlet of Pastelero where two very popular ventas (bar/restaurants) serve lunch (superb home cooked menu del dia, a three course meal for 10 Euros to include drinks) and dinner to include a more fine dining experience in one of the restaurants.

♦  6kms/10 mins’ drive from the small town of Villanueva de la Concepcion where a great range of amenities are available, including an excellent 24hr medical centre with on-stand-by ambulance, paramedics and doctor at all times.

♦  Malaga city and the coastal motorway is 35 mins’ drive away as is Los Alamos Beach.  You can catch a bus from Villanueva de la Concepcion if you want a day in the city without the car.

♦  Historic Antequera city with world heritage status for the Dolmens is 35 mins’ drive North where every amenity for modern day living is to be found.  From the cross roads of Andalucia… Cordoba, Seville, Ronda and Granada can be reached by car or rail.

♦  The summit of the magnificent El Torcal mountain range and stunning natural park is 20 minutes drive away.  Here you will find walking trails where you are almost guaranteed to see wild Ibex (North African antelope crossed with goats) who roam the Torcal.  The views from the look out viewing platform are stunning and there is a visitors centre and good restaurant/cafe serving breakfast, lunch and in the summer, dinner.  There is also an observatory for star gazing.
