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!

You would be hard pushed to get any closer to the beach at El Rompido without going for a swim!
When you walk up to the house and see the walkway by the side of of it you think “wow that is a short walk to the beach.” Then you actually go in to the house and take a look out of the windows and you truly see the value in this property. It´s gorgeous! The first floor has windows all round to take in the view of the water, the flecha, and the protected dunes in front of the house.
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.
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…
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!

Great little finca for living off the grid, free of utility bills, out in the beautiful Villablanca countryside.
You don´t have to worry about being totally isolated though as the whitewashed village is just 5 minutes away. Villablanca
If you have horses or animals, you can rest assured they won´t escape as the plot is completely fenced, and you have plenty of room to build stables.
Huelva is a coastal province that forms part of Costa de la Luz, and is right on the border with Portugal. It has a beautiful and varied landscaped that thankfully escaped the massive over-development that took place in other costas. Instead, the coastal resorts have low level buildings, looking onto wide sandy beaches. Continue reading
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
