Cortijo Los Abedules is located in a beautiful countryside setting at the foot of the Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside and unspoiled by mass tourism this is an area which is ideal for enjoying outdoor pursuits, experiencing “real” Spain and a relaxed lifestyle escaping all the stress of modern life.
Over the past 20 years, the current owners have created a home and business which is ideal for visitors to explore this special area and for the owners themselves, it has been a pleasure to restore the property to its current glory.
Here is a video showing an overview of the property and its location…
The property is split in two with the ground floor of the cortijo forming the three guest apartments and upstairs being the owner´s accommodation. The layout of the property gives a great deal of flexibility for rental business and is the perfect way to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle while still bringing in good income.
Each of the guest apartments is self-contained which appeals to the independent traveller who explores this part of Spain and gives the owners a less stressful workload.
The guest apartments and the business…
The accommodation for each apartment is comfortable and furnished individually to cater for all needs. Fans are provided for the summer months and oil-fired central heating caters for visitors in the cooler months, thus extending the year for income.
The property has proved to be an ideal venue for running small workshops and retreats for groups.
Each of the apartments are accessed independently from the front of the building with rear access to the courtyard and pool areas through the bedrooms.
There is also a degree of flexibility in the split between the apartments to extend the appeal of them to prospective visitors.
Each of the apartments come with their own, independent Tourism Licenses and the owners are prepared to share all of their knowledge and experience in their successful holiday lettings business.
Average annual income is easily in excess of €20,000 across the three apartments and the owners can share the details of this income, together with costs, profit and the marketing of the apartments with anyone genuinely interested.
The three apartments are as follows:
El Olivo – 60M2 with 1 bedroom
La Parra – 43M2 with 1 bedroom
La Higuera – 100M2 with 2-3 bedrooms
There is a bedroom within La Higuera which can be closed off and offered as extra accommodation for La Parra and creates the flexibility to accommodate guests with different needs.
Each of the apartments has access to a lovely patio area with table and chairs and the mature gardens which lead to the swimming pool. There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings.
The swimming pool measures 8.2m x 4.2m and is a saltwater swimming pool, the perfect way to freshen up during the hot Andalusian summer months.
The sun terrace above the swimming pool offers an area for sunbeds and soaking up the sunshine or to relax below the star filled skies.
This is the ideal way to work from home, bring in a healthy income and share your slice of heaven with visitors from around the world.
The owner accommodation – 180M2 on the first floor of the cortijo…
We often see properties which are geared more towards guests with the owners having to accept smaller accommodation or sub-standard comfort but this delightful cortijo offers a luxurious home from which to run the business and enjoy everything that Cazorla has to offer.
The owner’s accommodation sits on the first floor of the cortijo and is mainly open plan which gives good flow to the property. The property comes with a well fitted kitchen with balcony above the front door. A dual aspect dining area, light and bright living room with vaulted ceiling which connects beautifully with the large sun terrace.
Further to the living room is a snug area and home office space and from here you access the bedroom zone.

Bedroom 3 is also a huge room with a bedroom area, sitting area, built in wardrobes and a vaulted ceiling.
The family bathroom comes with a full-size bath and shower above.
When dealing with a home and business it is rare to see such a spacious and comfortable main home and, in this instance, the owners enjoy a lifestyle which is focused on the business and ensuring guests are well catered to but without compromising their own life style in any way. The first-floor accommodation is also sufficiently spacious to accommodate friends or relatives or even a growing family.
There is even a huge sun terrace off the living room (with sun awning) which allows the owners to relax and dine alfresco and enjoy the panoramic views of the countryside surrounding the property.
Within the grounds of the cortijo are a number of outbuildings and these include a 7m x 5m workshop with integral office accommodation.
A greenhouse/storeroom, laundry room for washing machine and an external boiler house.
The land offered with the property amounts to 5,500M2 with an olive grove, useful secure dog runs including purpose built accommodation for dogs and ample storage space.
Cazorla and the Province of Jaén…
This beautiful area is well visited by people from around the world due to the proximity of Europe’s second largest National Park – the “Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas”.
Travellers come to the area in search of rural retreats, local culture, walking, mountain biking and mountain adventure activities.
Within easy reach of the proeprty are Jaén, Ubeda , Baeza, Córdoba and Granada to mention but a few.
The cortijo is ideally situated (about 45 mins) to link up with main network road system running North/South and West/East of the peninsular.
Cortijo Los Abedules is located less than 10mins west of Cazorla which is rich in history, culture and modern services.
The historic centre offers winding, narrow cobbled streets and yet the more modern side of town caters to all needs offering sporting facilities, a wide range of shopping options and plenty of bars and restaurants.
Cazorla still retains much of the Spanish qualities and traditions including the people who welcome visitors from across the world.
Whilst the area is well known for tourism, the surrounding countryside is also famed for the quality of its olive oil and the production of this essential ensures the area has a home-grown wealth that is not solely dependent on tourism.
The area must be explored to fully appreciate the benefits compared to the coastal strip of Andalucia and once you´ve found it, you are unlikely to want to leave!
This fabulous opportunity has been a labour of love for the current owners who have created a thriving business and who enjoy a comfortable lifestyle in this traditional rural location.
Whilst surrounded by unspoiled countryside, the property is not isolated and has a wide range of places to visit and things to do within a short walk or drive.
The owners are happy to pass across information on the home and business to serious enquirers and they are willing to handover the business to new owners to ensure a smooth transition with no loss of income or continuity.
