There are various outbuldings around the property, and the very large plot of 32000 m2 has a formal garden as well as many fruit and nut trees, including almonds, walnuts, figs, olives and oranges. Under the pool terrace, a further bedroom is currently unfinished, and would increase the accommodation if completed. There is a garage, and parking for several cars.
Three phase mains electricity is connected, and the property has plentiful water from a well, as is usual in country properties. A large storage tank of 30,000 litres acts as a back up, too. Internet, TV and telephone are all installed. Air conditioning and panel heaters provide cooling and heating for summer and winter rentals.
The substantial income from holiday rentals makes this property a sound investment, and the current owner has been running a business here for a number of years. It would be possible to take over the existing bookings, many of which are repeat clients, and also the existing accountants could be used, as they know the business so well.
The property has all paperwork in order and also has an AFO certificate from the town hall already. Ownership is registered in the name of a Spanish limited company and if the buyer buys the company with the asset, then this will result in a substantial saving of up to 60,000€.
