For sale direct from owners!

This traditional Andalucian cottage has superb kerb appeal online which helps it appeal to many tourists who are also awed by the spectacular views and beautiful swimming pool.  The property has a tourism licence and is currently a very successful holiday let for nine months of the year with the owners using it for the rest of the year.

Key information: The total built area is 137M2 and the plot size is 3,725M2.  There are 3 good size double bedrooms and 2 large bathrooms (with the master bedroom being en-suite).  The very private pool is heated via solar and measures 8M x4M.  The cottage may be traditional but there are many modern comforts that make this character cottage a comfortable and desirable home (see more about this below).


Due to changes to the Andalucian land law, smaller parcels of land can no longer be segregated.  This means the property is being sold with a share of a larger parcel of land rather than the land specifically on which the house sits.

The boundaries of the land are secure, clearly shown and the neighbours respect the boundaries.  The land around the house is for the sole use of the owners however, from the perspective of the Catastro, the larger parcel of land is shown as being shared between three owners – this house and its two neighbours.

In practice, it means the house and land can be enjoyed without any issue and the neighbours understand the boundaries and have no interest in this particular parcel of land. It is simply from a legal position, the owners own a third of a larger parcel of land on which sits this house.

The views are exceptional and highly sought after in the geographical area.  You have the rolling patchwork of arable farmland in the foreground that changes colour with the seasons with olive and almond trees that break up the farmer’s fields. In the middle distance are the magnificent mountains ranges that surround the Malaga Lakes and El Chorro Gorge and behind those, the Serrania de Ronda mountain peaks that are often snow peaked in winter.  If you look South, the Mediterranean Sea can be clearly seen and this is the coastline of Western Malaga city and Torremolinos.

High specification features that bring this traditional Andalucian cottage into modern times:

♦  Newly fitted kitchen with high gloss units and new appliances such as an impressive range cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

♦  Underfloor heating powered via solar panels.

♦  Solar hot water to the house.

♦  Heated pool via solar.

♦  Back-up heat pump for when there is the occasional cloudy day and the heat pump is needed to support the solar panels.

♦  Beautifully styled and decorated throughout to include bespoke built-in storage cupboards.

♦  More recently planted trees mix with one old protected oak and several protected black pines.  The fruit and nut trees include; lime, orange, apricot, pomegranate, almond, pistachio and fig.

♦  More recently planted tree lined driveway with Magnolia and Jacaranda trees.

♦  New air conditioning units (cooling and heating).

♦  New water deposit (for back up water), stored in case the mains has to be turned off for repairs to water pipes in the road, as an example.

The new and stylish furniture/contents offer a ready-to-go option to buyers:

Apart from personal items, the owners are prepared to sell the beautifully presented property as seen. Ready-to-go so it can be instantly enjoyed as a home or holiday let.  If this is desired, an inventory will be drawn up by the sellers and a total sum of money attributed to the items as a whole.  2nd hand contents in Spain are not subject to purchase tax, so the inventory of contents would be processed alongside the purchase of the house by the buyer’s lawyer but they would only pay purchase tax on the house.


♦  1.4km/2 mins’ drive from the hamlet of Pastelero where two very popular ventas (bar/restaurants) serve lunch (superb home cooked menu del dia, a three course meal for 10 Euros to include drinks) and dinner to include a more fine dining experience in one of the restaurants.

♦  6kms/10 mins’ drive from the small town of Villanueva de la Concepcion where a great range of amenities are available, including an excellent 24hr medical centre with on-stand-by ambulance, paramedics and doctor at all times.

♦  Malaga city and the coastal motorway is 35 mins’ drive away as is Los Alamos Beach.  You can catch a bus from Villanueva de la Concepcion if you want a day in the city without the car.

♦  Historic Antequera city with world heritage status for the Dolmens is 35 mins’ drive North where every amenity for modern day living is to be found.  From the cross roads of Andalucia… Cordoba, Seville, Ronda and Granada can be reached by car or rail.

♦  The summit of the magnificent El Torcal mountain range and stunning natural park is 20 minutes drive away.  Here you will find walking trails where you are almost guaranteed to see wild Ibex (North African antelope crossed with goats) who roam the Torcal.  The views from the look out viewing platform are stunning and there is a visitors centre and good restaurant/cafe serving breakfast, lunch and in the summer, dinner.  There is also an observatory for star gazing.


The entire cottage features wooden windows with shutters, terracotta colour floor tiles, beamed ceilings and thick white walls.  Both bathroom suites are white and all the fitted wardrobes are wooden.  This traditional character is complemented with more contemporary decor, kitchen, fixtures and fittings. The old and the new blends beautifully in this white stone cottage.

A cane covered pergola allows dappled sun to flood through onto the loungers and tables in winter and the pergola is grape vine covered in summer with grapes hanging down, ready to eat in August.  The front pergola acts as a front porch and leads you to the solid wood and iron studded Andalucian front door. Under the pergola on this front terrace is a BBQ to heighten the enjoyment of alfresco Andalucian living.

The front door enters into the living room as is traditional in Andalucian cottages. The living room is a light and vibrant room with a feature fireplace. An arch leads through into the newly fitted high gloss kitchen.

The new kitchen is fully fitted, high gloss and a stunning oyster colour which blends beautifully with the wooden windows and terracotta floor.  There is a new range cooker, new washing machine, large fridge freezer, dishwasher and extractor hood.  There is a clever wrap around breakfast bar in the kitchen too.  Ideal for sipping a glass of Rioja whilst chatting with the cook!

The dining room is accessed via steps up from the kitchen.  It is not a large dining room but this is hardly important as most of the time you will be dining alfresco.  A door from the dining room leads to the rear terrace area where the garden shed is located, log store and the fruit trees.

Inner hallway is accessed from the fireplace end of the living room and leads to all three double bedrooms and both bathrooms.

Bedroom 1 with en-suite is a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and steps down into the very spacious en-suite bathroom with full length bath, shower cubicle, vanity unit, w.c. and bidet.

Bedroom 2 is another spacious double bedroom with fitted wardrobes.

Bedroom 3 is currently set up as a twin bedroom with fitted wardrobe and dressing table.

Family bathroom is a great size too.  It has an oval corner bath with shower over, wash basin, w.c., bidet and inset cupboard for your toiletries.


The front terrace with cane pergola extends the living accommodation of this charming home.  There is space for a good size dining table, soft seating, BBQ, storage units and more.  The front terrace has the perfect scenario for winter or summer.  In summer the pergola is covered in a mature vine with grapes hanging down from Spring through to the end of summer.  In winter the vine is cut back and the sun passes through the canes so the sun can be soaked up whilst dining or lounging.  The views are far reaching and take in the mountain ranges of Valle Abdaljais, El Chorro Gorge and La Serrania de Ronda in the far distance.  Equally, the view from the covered terrace takes in the pretty gardens and magnificent and protected oak tree and black pines.  The pool can be glimpsed behind the hedge and gate.

Swimming pool and pool terrace:

The pool is a good size at 8 x 4m and is surrounded by a large terracotta tiled terrace.  There is a pergola that is covered during the summer to give shade and an oleander hedge surrounds the pool to give privacy. There is a picket gate in the hedge to make the pool safe for children staying at the cottage.  The pool has sun from sun rise to sun set and the sun sets are magnificent all year round.


There are different areas to enjoy…

♦  The black pine walk is magnificent, like your very own little forest.  These trees are indigenous to the area and cover the entire Montes de Malaga Natural Park located South of Villanueva de la Concepcion on the way to Malaga city.

♦  A spacious garden area immediately outside the front of the cottage has an ancient oak tree that is protected by a preservation order and it gives character to the entire garden.

♦  Behind the cottage is a very large terrace area that flows into the fruit and nut garden where the solar panels are also located.

♦  A top terrace at the same level as the black pine walk with a water and electricity supply, all ready to install a summer house, pergola or just a great place to look over the top of the cottage to take in the impressive views and sunsets.

♦  The Jacaranda, Orange and Magnolia lined entrance creates an impressive entrance.

Tourism business with tourism licence:

♦  The property has a tourism licence number 29141CJG14 and the house complies to the criteria required to be a ‘casa rural,’

♦  The cottage is holiday let for 150 Euros per night Saturday and Sunday and 120 Euros per night Monday to Friday.  For a weekly stay a discount of 5% is given.  There is a 100 Euro surcharge for cleaning per booking.
