This property currently has a tourism licence VTAR/MA/0177 which gives the property Vivienda Rural status for self-catering holiday makers. The business has an average income of €400 per week and the season has the ability to run year round because firstly, Barranco del Sol has a micro climate that extends the summer season, plus, the holiday rental accommodation has air-conditioning units for the summer and wood burning stoves for the winter.
The property is split into the main house (3 double beds & 2 bath) with attached, yet completely independent guest annex (1 twin bed & 1 bath) for use as overflow accommodation that supports the separate guest cottage (1 twin/king size bed, 1 bath + living/kitchen/dining room).
Alfresco enjoyment includes; the main house having a spacious and completely private Andalucian style courtyard, the guest cottage and independent guest annex both enjoy private patios. The entire property benefits from the use of a fabulous swimming pool, poolside covered dining area brick built BBQ and huge sunbathing terrace.
Character throughout is evident by way of beamed ceilings, thick walls, cosy corners, inclined ceilings and a slightly quirky layout associated with all properties of this age.
Vistas: From the pool and pool terrace the views are outstanding, taking in the entire, El Torcal Mountain range and surrounding countryside. The vistas change colour with the seasons; from deep green in Winter to multicoloured (with wild flowers and almond blossom in Spring), golden in Summer and green with copper tones in Autumn.
The property is located just moments by car from the tiny hamlet centre of Barranco del Sol where there is a plaza with play area for children. Then 5 minutes walk from the property is a small bar (situated in the front room and front terrace of a family home) which is rather charming! The village of Almogia is 20 minutes drive away where all amenities required for every day living are to be found.
Barranco del Sol is situated within the mountain ranges behind Malaga city and some may say it has an isolated feel (despite being accessed off tarmac to the front door). Everyone has a different perception of ‘isolation’ and to help with this… Barranco del Sol is a community spread out over the hills and valleys where time seems to have stopped. It is a million miles away from the urbanizations on the Costa del Sol and equally, is nowhere near as isolated as being located 2km down a bumpy dirt track with no neighbours in sight.
* Note to potential buyers… the current owner lovingly and admirably rescues abandoned cats. She does her very best to find adoptive homes within Spain and abroad. This means that you will be greeted by Christine the very accommodating owner, however whilst viewing the property, it is likely you will meet some of the cats too. Fez the black cat with half a tail, is extremely friendly and with just a little encouragement by way of a tickle behind the ear, he will likely follow you around the garden and pool area during your viewing. The cats will, of course be going with Christine when she moves but if you wish to adopt any of the cats, that would be very much appreciated by Christine (but by no means is part of the deal!)
