This beautiful parcel of land is located within the Los Juncares valley just north of the popular village of Guajar Alto in the Granada Province.
Known as Los Guajares, the three villages in the area have been a popular destination for buyers wanting to escape the stress of modern life. The valley is a tranquil place to explore unspoiled countryside and a more traditional way of life.
This parcel of land is 7,200M2 of terraced land with approximately 500 olive trees planted. These olives produce a good an annual yield which can either be sold to the local cooperative or milled to create your own olive oil.
In addition to the olive trees, there are pomegranate trees, nispero and fig planted.
The land has been terraced which allows for easier access and there is a platform which offers lots of space for parking and planting more fruit or vegetables. In fact, the whole plot could be optimised to provide self sufficient produce.
Please take a look at this video which shows an aerial view of the land…
The current owner has stayed on the land in a mobile touring caravan which is permissable however, it is unlikely that you would get permission for any permanent residential structure. It would be possible to create a storage or tool shed.
There is a large water deposit located on the land which holds around 85,000litres so the watering for existing trees and any future planting is no problem at all.
There is also an “alberca” which were often used as a water deposit but have, in many cases, been converted into plunge pools.
The wildlife on the land and in the area is incredibly diverse – beautiful butterflies visiting the terraces when the olive trees are in bloom. Multicolored tailed small lizards/geckos are everywhere and occasionally wild boar will visit to mop up any fallen olives along with foxes, badgers and mountain deer. Quail and Partridge are also to be seen.
In the Spring the mountains come alive with the most beautiful wild flowers.
This is a delightful opportunity to own a lovely parcel of land with olives and other fruit trees. A special location with a micro climate supporting the production of fruit and vegetables, this could easily be a self sufficiency project for local residents or someone seeking a an escape from the stresses of modern life.
