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 to make your initial contact TODAY!

Guardamar, Alicante Province – Magnificent Duplex

Get your hands on a charming town 2-bedroom townhouse with incredible views for under €100,000 in Guardamar del Segura, Alicante.

The agent, CGI, says this:
“This well maintained property has great communal facilities such as a swimming pool and sunbathing area. It is situated in a quiet area, in the El Eden urbanization, close to the beach and the centre of Guardamar with everything to enjoy about the Spanish lifestyle, such as restaurants, supermarkets, banks, the church, the town hall and the bus station. This property is perfect for permanent living, to stay in the winter or to stay during vacations.”

It’s better to hear the views of the owner though. My friend Russ from anythingbutpaella ( tells us about his home:

“We have had an incredible six years living on the edge of Guardamar. We have loved every minute of making this house our home but it’s time to move on. When we came here, we had no idea if we would be staying, so the price and location were perfect. Now though, we have decided we are definitely staying in the area and so we have found what could well be our forever home just a few miles away. Living here has been a great introduction to Spanish life and it’s only a 25 minute walk into the town, or a short ride on the local hopper bus. Situated on a small and secure urbanisation, the house even has an integral garage for ease of access and extra security. In the house you can chase the sun or chase the shade. Sitting in the small East facing garden is a pleasure but the real wow factor is the view of the sunset from the rooftop terrace. The best view though, in my opinion, is the little known Guardamar Pyramids which can be viewed sitting out on the balcony with a drink in your hand. I’ll not spoil the secret by saying what causes this fabulous visual effect!.”

Property of the Week, Number 4

Canillas de Aceituno,Málaga


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 180.000 euros

For more details please email the owners direct.
