About El Curato Urbanisation
El Curato is a very unique urbanisation because is was created in the 1980’s and each property enjoys a large plot of land and the entire urbanisation has a lot of mature trees which gives natural privacy and a feeling of being in the countryside and not on an urbanisation. El Curato is a very natural urbanisation, not manicured with the countryside spoilt.
The urbanisation benefits from land-line phones being available for connection with Broadband Internet also and of course mains water and electricity are connected.
The urbanisation has less than 20 properties on it and each villa is well spaced from the other.
It is also a very quiet place to live and enjoy the fabulous countryside that surrounds it yet also, it benefits from a good quality tarmac country road that passes the urbanisation. This road is very infrequently used but usefully for easy access. This particular villa is the furthest back from the road and has a huge rock hill between it and the country road – so the villa hears no traffic noise at all but has excellent access to the coast or inland. A win-win situation all roun
