Against the backdrop of the Montes de Malaga natural park, with its beautiful scenery and old ventas, this is truly an idyllic place, ideal to experience the Spanish life. This fantastic traditional cortijo, or Andalucian farm-house, near Colmenar does not leave much to be desired. The building is in excellent condition and completely original. The house, with 400 square metres of built surface, is ready to live in and can easily be converted into a Bed & Breakfast or a more stylish rural country hotel.
Try and find a house like this these days, they are few and far between. Currently, the house has six bedrooms and one bathroom, but there is enough space available to create at least another four bedrooms, or extra bathrooms. Although the house doesn’t require major renovation works, it definitely needs refurbishing. You’ll want to have a decent kitchen installed, for example, and some form of heating for the cooler winter months.
This is an ideal place for horse lovers too, with more than enough space for lots of horses. There are no less then 60 acres of land, part of which is practically flat, while other parts are steeper but those can be terraced to offer more possibilities. Right now there are mainly olive and almond trees, and a few old oak trees near the house which will offer refreshing shade in summer.
If you are wondering about the possibilities in the tourist trade, than this would make an ideal retreat: a place away from the hasty world, but in a very charming environment, where you can quiet down completely. The house is approached via a long track of about 5 kilometres, guaranteeing total privacy, and peace and quiet. The views are absolutely unequalled and the property is ideally situated with respect to the many sights to see.
From here, it takes 35 minutes to get to the Costa del Sol beaches, 25 minutes for Málaga and the international airport. There'll be never a dull moment. Enjoy one of Andalucia's many fiestas, restaurants and bars, local markets, bull fighting, water and adventure parks, go skiing in the Sierra Nevada, or designer shopping in Marbella, play golf on one of over 30 golf courses in Málaga, water sports, beautiful beaches and much, much more.
