For sale direct from the owners! Rent to buy – the owners will consider a rent to buy option if suitable terms can be agreed.
This charming country home is set in the hills inland from Castell de Ferro on the Costa Tropical in the Granada province. The location offers privacy, amazing views and a peaceful environment ideal for relaxing and escaping the stress of the modern world.
The current owners have renovated and cared for the property over the last 21 years and have run yoga breaks/classes and holiday rentals since buying the house. Over recent years, they have taken a step back with the business side and now wish to pass on the opportunity to new owners who have the energy and enthusiasm for creating a life in Spain with great business opportunities.
In total, the property comes with 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and the property is split into the main house (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) where the owners live and a self-contained 3 bedroom house plus a further studio or lounge building ideal for group activities, parties, workshops or as a yoga, hobby or artists’ studio. The third section is the pool area which comes with 3 bedrooms (all en-suite) which are individually accessed.
This means the property offers a huge amount of flexibility in terms of how it is used in the future – holiday rentals in the self-contained house or accommodate visitors on a yoga break, as a wedding venue or to accommodate group activities, all kept separate from the owner’s accommodation.
The property is also on two separate escrituras (deeds) and can therefore be sold separately in the future, if wanted.
The current owners have welcomed many guests over the years and almost all of them have made a return visit, so much so that many have become friends. This is an ideal space for people to escape the stress of modern life and is ideal for relaxing yoga or as some form of retreat business. Equally, with the studio space, it could also be the ideal place from which to run painting courses or any other hobby or interest. The property is well suited to group activities and gatherings where people can be accommodated in comfort with their own privacy and the perfect communal space for group activities, seminars etc.
The possibilities are almost endless and the only limitation is your imagination.
The property benefits from some beautiful original features amongst which are some of the mill workings from when this was a working olive mill. The house has beamed ceilings in many rooms, traditional wooden windows with shutters, wood burning stoves and many nooks and crannies in the traditional Andalucian style.
Cortijo de las Vacas Gordas – the main house is where the current owners live and this comprises 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The owners use one of the bedrooms as a separate dining space but this can easily be returned to a bedroom. A living room and large kitchen/dining room are on the ground floor and a lovely, glazed summer room takes in the most of the countryside views.
Casita La Bodega – this is the self-contained guest house and comes with 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, separate dining room and kitchen.
Outside space is vital in Spain and La Bodega comes with a lovely terrace area with great space to dine alfresco or relax on the garden terrace,
El Molino – this is the large studio space which can be used for all manner of purposes including a separate living space enjoying the valley views.
Pool bedrooms – three of the eight bedrooms are accessed from the outside and overlook the pool area so provide further flexibility in terms of how the rooms are rented or used. Each of these bedrooms benefit from en-suite bathroom facilities.
The swimming pool, pool terrace and sun deck provide the most amazing valley views and this gives guests the ideal space to enjoy their holiday. The pool area has great privacy and plenty of space for sunbathing. There is even a wood fired hot tub which can be used throughout the year.
The gardens that surround the property are a delight with many mature plants and trees which help to create an established feel, create privacy and help visitors to relax immediately.

In addition, there are various terraces to enjoy at different times of day along with BBQ areas.

Lujar, Castell de Ferro and the Costa Tropical
This charming country home is located in the peaceful and unspoilt hills inland from the Costa Tropical and the coastal resort of Castell de Ferro.
Surrounded by beauty, the property is reached via an accessible dry river bed so isn’t for everyone but the more adventurous buyers will love what they find when they reach the property. Terrific views across the valley and down towards the sea combined with lots of wildlife and birds make this an ideal place to relax and enjoy the tranquillity.
Whilst the house is set in the mountains, it is just 10mins from the bustling resort of Castell de Ferro which has a delightful beach, a wide range of bars and restaurants and shops.
The coastal A7 motorway is also just a short drive and gives access to the whole Costa Tropical and further afield including larger towns such as Motril, Granada (1 hour) and the Sierra Nevada – ideal for winter skiing.
