Relocating to Spain and starting a bed and breakfast business seems to be very popular amongst expats. It is a good way to bring in some income without having to find a job in Spain, or using up savings and pensions.
I actually stayed here for a month when we first came to Spain, while we were waiting for the purchase of our finca to go through. We didn´t want to commit to a long rental contract as the sale was supposed to be quick, and this offered a great alternative without having to pay for a hotel.
The bungalows at Aljaraque are self-contained units that are kitted out so that visitors can cook for themselves, and have a more at-home experience than impersonal hotels offer. Each house has 2 double bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen.
There is also the huge garden which is great for people with children or dogs as it means they can run around freely within the secure 3000m2 plot.
The owner lives on-site in one of the 7 houses and rents the remaining houses to guests – a combination of Spanish and foreign tourists. It has been running as a working business for at least 10 years, so it is well established and ready for you to take over.
The sale price is €450,000 euros and has been drastically reduced from the original asking price.
Why is the owner selling? To run the place full time you need to live onsite full-time or have someone run it for you. He has been doing it for 10 years now and wants a break!
