Seville Cortijo

Renovated Cortijo – Rural Hotel For Sale in Seville

ruralhotelseville (18)A cortijo from the 1800s completely renovated in a simple yet welcoming style, stays true to the essence of the history of the building, while making sure guests have a great experience.

This rural hotel has 10 bedrooms which can accommodate up to 20 guests at a time, with ample recreation space on the 20,000m2 plot.

The hotel is fully licensed and registered with the Andalucia Tourist Board and comes with an established advertising network you can take advantage to continue to attract new guests.

There is scope to offer the hotel as a great venue for groups who want to hold courses in a quiet, rural setting.  The first groups that come to mind are those who want to hold yoga classes, art classes, meditation etc.  The hotel is small enough for a group to occupy all the rooms and have the property to themselves, and large enough to provide both indoor and outdoor entertainment and ´work´ space.

ruralhotelseville (8)A third option is to use the cortijo for large family gatherings. It is large enough to accommodate several groups of family members, with excellent facilities for everyone to eat together and spend time together.

Whether you want something for personal or business use, the hotel is in a great location just one hours drive to Seville.  Far enough away that you get the feeling of being in the country away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough to drive in whenever you need to.

If you do not want to drive to Seville you have the village close by for everything you need including supermarkets, banks, doctor, bars and cafes.

Seville Airport:  approximately 40 mins drive

Price: €995,000

Aljaraque Bungalows – An Alternative to Bed & Breakfast Properties

Aljaraque bed and breakfastRelocating 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.

aljaraque bed and breakfastThe 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!

Finca with Stables Just Minutes from Aljaraque

Aljaraque Finca

I went to see this finca a couple of weeks ago and I have to say it is a much higher standard than most of the fincas on the market.  The owners used it as their full-time home and you can tell they put a lot of effort into making it as comfortable and welcoming as possible.

What else makes it different?  Well, there is a 70m2 annex which you could use for guest accommodation, a games room, or separate office.

Aljaraque Finca

Horse owners can keep their horses on the plot as the finca already has stables and a paddock area.  The owners ride their horses ride out of the finca into the nearby countryside and forest.

Not forgetting the kids or adults who want to cool off in summer the finca has a fenced off area with a private pool making the most of summer…

Private Pool

You will have to navigate a rural track which is not in great condition to get to the finca, but it is well worth it to be so close to town and still benefit from the space of this 4 bed, 2 bath finca with 4200m2 plot.

All of this for just €360,000 euros!

El Rompido Marina

El Rompido, Huelva, Costa de la Luz

El Rompido was originally a small fishing village which has developed into a very popular destination for golfers and holidaymakers.

Because of the low impact development in El Rompido, you won´t find high rise apartment blocks, rather exclusive villas near the marina, apartments with sea views, and older houses just a walk away from the beach. Continue reading
