This distinctive villa is set into an impressive elevated mountain backdrop with spectacular views. Access is excellent with no dirt track to the property. Paperwork is all in order (License of First Occupation included) to facilitate an efficient sale.  There is nature at the doorstep, with long-distance walking trails right outside the gate.  The property is 164M2 built (3 double bedrooms & 2 bathrooms) and set in 3,028M2 of gated and fenced land in Alfarnatejo, Axarquia, Malaga.


El Sueño (The Dream) was the name given this well-constructed villa of 164M2 when the original owners built their dream home in 1990, even bringing some materials from Germany to enhance quality. The villa is situated in a landscaped plot of 3,028M2 in a geographical area north of Malaga, a particularly beautiful inland area of the Axarquia known as the ‘Pyrenees of the South’. Access to the property is via a quality country road and then a 150m concrete drive up to the villa. Paperwork is all in order (License of First Occupation included) to facilitate an efficient sale.

The villa has qualities you will not find in the average Spanish home, and it’s perfect for comfortable year round living, with… a fence surrounding all, double-glazed shuttered windows, gas fired central heating, a roof terrace, spacious sauna, Jacuzzi, large efficient wood burning stove, a land-line telephone & broadband Internet, air-conditioning, impressive sunporch dining room that is fully glazed and can be opened for year round enjoyment of the vistas and seasons, a garage, a 5mx3m art studio in the garden, a three chamber basement (the perfect workshop plus wine cellar), a large fenced animal recreation area plus chicken house, beautifully planted and mature Mediterranean low-maintenance tiered garden with something always interesting in bloom, beds to plant a market garden, a pond with Koi Carp and waterfall, and more!

It is rare to be able to enjoy some of the most spectacular mountain views Spain has to offer at 624 meters above sea level and not suffer isolation and lack of modern-day comforts. This villa has the, ‘best of both worlds’ with the coast at Torre del Mar being only 30 mins’ drive away and Malaga historic centre just 45 mins’ drive.


The villa is spread over two floors, with the ground floor entrance hall opening to the open plan living/dining room, kitchen with walk-in pantry, fully glazed sun porch dining area (best room in the house), and the ground floor bedroom or study and bathroom. The first floor opens from a sweeping staircase to the landing that accesses the master bedroom, another bedroom and the second bathroom. Both first floor bedrooms lead out to a spacious terrace with forever views.

Bonus additions & comforts

Spacious sauna on the first-floor terrace and a Jacuzzi under the stars, overlooking the garden.

Outbuildings & features

Garage of 25M2, basement with 3 chambers 80M2

Art studio or hobby house/wooden chalet 3M x 5M

Stocked Koi pond with waterfall and blooming water-loving plants

Fenced animal recreation area with spacious chicken coop or large kennel

Portable car port is a large, canopied parking /turning area behind the property at end of the concrete driveway.

Landscaped & tiered mature garden planted with flowering cacti, flowering succulents, many Mediterranean shrubs and flowers. There is always something special going on somewhere in this garden!

Olive orchard of 22 trees provides either a large quantity of single estate, first pressed extra virgin olive oil (75 to 100 ltrs per annum) or the olives (400 to 600 kilos) can be exchanged at the co-operative for money (so a small income if preferred).

Grape vine pergola and seating area

Rear terrace

**If you must consider a pool: an ideal location for a large above ground pool that would look dug in is located just outside the doors of the basement where the land naturally drops. This placement would give the impression of a dug in pool with infinity effect.  It would be classed as a removable structure so should by-pass Andalusian land laws that currently restrict the construction of concrete and steel swimming pools on ‘Rustic’ land (countryside land).
