Property of the Week

Steal a Home

Each week I highlight one property that offers something exceptional. It will always offer great value for money but it might be focused because of its location, price, gardens, accommodation or a host of other reasons. The one thing I can guarantee is that it will go fast. So, if you are interested do not hesitate.


If you love gardens then you should be looking at this house. You need to maintain the excellent work of the current owners as the lush vegetation here allied to a beautifully set out home is the main attraction here. This unusual horseshoe shaped house around a semi tropical garden in the middle is stunning. There is nothing you won\’t like here. Large, spacious rooms with loads of light flooding it and huge windows showing you the garden from all angles.

The basics of course need to be pointed out. A 172m2 house plus outbuildings on an 800m2 plot. Three bedrooms and bathroom along with huge open plan kitchen and living area in the main part of the house and a converted outbuilding with another bedroom and bathroom on the grounds. Lovely shaded covered terrace to the front and beautifully appointed gardens with pool and a sun terrace on the roof.

Don’t forget that there is a landline telephone with broadband internet too and all facilities connected up and even a satellite dish for Sky TV if you have it.

And then there is the beautiful interior garden cooling down the house in summer and keeping it warm in the winter.

For anyone in this price range you must look. More details and many more photos here.

Property of the Week, Number 2

There were two great opportunities this week. I have highlighted them both.

Canillas de Aceituno


House for sale in a very quiet and private location near Canillas de Aceituno.

2 bedroom 1 bathroom.Mature garden with swimming pool and lovely mountain views.

The house is nestled in a very quiet, picturesque valley surrounded by slopes which are covered in vines of the local Moscatel grapes, olive trees that go to make local Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and almond trees. This is the perfect place if you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is being sold direct from the owners who have upgraded the property constantly over the past decade. It is now easily managed and in absolute “walk-in” condition.

The house is built in a traditional finca style with high beamed ceilings throughout. It is amazingly cool in summer but equally cosy on winter evenings when the wood-burning stove provides a lovely warm glow. The only passing traffic you might note is the local goat herder and the mule man in the mornings and evenings!

The swimming pool is particularly private situated behind the mature trees within the garden. The garden has matured over eleven years and we have tried to make it easy maintenance. We can sit and enjoy the gardens and the views across the valleys on lovely warm summer evenings …… with a nice glass of wonderful Spanish wine!

All in all, this is a perfect setting for you to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle.

We are reluctantly forced to sell our home for medical reasons and we have reduced the price significantly for a quick completion.

Price 189.000 euros
