The Village of Barranco Ferrer
There are approximately 20 properties in the village which is a community at the end of a road in a secluded valley. Many of the properties are attached or semi-detached but this property is detached and stands in the middle of the village with views of the surrounding hills.
Originally, it is likely this hamlet was one large working Cortijo and was broken up at some stage to form the village of Barranco Ferrer.
This is why Ferrer has its very own historic water supply via a very productive well and a bore hole. Much of the land around Barranco Ferrer is still farmed today with olive and almond trees surrounding the village.
The residents of Barranco Ferrer set up a village fund with a meeting being held once a year to agree the service charge (currently 50€ per annum) for the maintenance of the village and the water supply and the cost for water usage (currently 0.5€ per m3).
The Coast and the Road down to Castell de Ferro
The road down from Barranco Ferrer, is via a cement/tarmac road and a raised track crossing a dry river bed to a tarmac road leading to either the A7/E15 motorway which is around 10 minute’s drive/6km or a few minute’s more brings you to the coastal town of Castell de Ferro. This bustling coastal town has everything required for modern day living including a 24 hour medical centre with emergency ambulance, sporting facilities, bars, restaurants, shops and of course, the beaches.
Motril, approximately thirty kilometres away is where you would go for major shopping and city culture.
