Las Monjas is a beautiful modern Cortijo, built in 2005 with full building permits and a Licence of First Occupation. The styling of the property is that of an Andalucian Cortijo but the finishes are of a first class, rustic styled villa.
The building permit for the property was obtained when it was still possible to pick your favourite view and build your dream property. That is exactly what the current owners did but due to failing health, they now sadly need to sell. They won’t be moving far however, they love the area but want a smaller home to retire to.
The property has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, modern finishes, superb outside living/dining areas and a 10M x 5M swimming pool.
Set in the foothills of the stunning La Maroma mountain which is snow-capped in winter, it is still possible to sunbathe on the beach!
Las Monjas offers excellent equestrian facilities and dog kennelling set in 19,000M2 (just under 5 acres) of land with paddocks, a ménage for schooling horses, 2 stables, and tack room.
Architect’s drawings are available (see photos) for the conversion of the stables and tack room into a separate guest cottage. If horses are not your passion, perhaps you would like a self-contained guest cottage for visiting family or paying guests.
The property is conveniently located only 5mins drive from the picturesque white village of Cannillas de Aceituno, which has much to offer. Infant and Junior schools, small supermarket, 2 butchers, pharmacy, ironmongers with independent shops of every variety, 2 banks, numerous bars and restaurants. In addition a church, medical centre, municipal swimming pool, children’s playground and of course the all-important, village square.
Coastal towns: Only 25mins drive to the bustling historic town of Velez Malaga and 30mins to the seaside town and beach of Torre del Mar.
Nearest airport: 55 mins’ drive to Malaga airport.

Casa de Aldea is a historic cottage located on the edge of the very charming and tiny urban village of Las Mayoralas. Situated virtually on the edge of Lake Vinuela and surrounded by countryside - the setting is stunning. Las Mayoralas is a small community that was historically a large Cortijo, segregated in 1972 to become an 'Urban' hamlet. There is just one bar/restaurant within walking distance and the hamlet comes under the municipality of Periana which is 5 minutes drive away.
Casa de Aldea was lovingly renovated between 2005 and 2009 with the original features being sympathetically retained and modern conveniences added.
Finding a village property with outside space and stunning views is often a challenge, however this desirable property has 4 alfresco areas: A roof terrace with outstanding countryside and lake views (accessed from both first floor bedrooms), an intimate courtyard garden ideal for a Jacuzzi, a morning coffee terrace with retracting sun blind next to the entrance and a spacious sun terrace with covered dining area that has stunning, uninterrupted lake views.
The cottage is set over two storeys with both bedrooms and the bathroom being on the first floor and the living accommodation at street level.
A few minutes walk leads you to the water's edge or to a bar/restaurant.
5 minutes' drive takes you up to the village of Periana renowned for its spring water, peaches and olive oil.
Access to the property is via a concrete road to the door from Periana.
Periana is a vibrant and large village with just under 4,000 inhabitants and has every amenity needed for modern day living. A municipal outdoor swimming pool, shops, bars, restaurant, medical centre, weekly market, sports facilities (to include a popular Zumba class!) and numerous festival and fairs to join in with throughout the year.

Cana Bet is a traditional, detached Mallorcan village home that dates back to 1860. It has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and has a commanding location towards the edge of the charming village of Mancor del Val, which is 5 km from the market town of Inca. The property has two large double bedrooms each with use of a bathroom (one en-suite). The second living room/t.v. room/study can be used as an occasional bedroom if required.
The property has its own beautiful and mature garden plus wonderful terraced and balcony areas which are accessed from virtually all the rooms in the house. A garage is also a real bonus when living in a Mallorcan village.
This immaculate and characterful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, has a slightly elevated position and therefore, far reaching roof top countryside and mountain views.
The village of Mancor del Vall has a central location on the island and is 30 minutes from the capital, Palma and 20 to 25 minutes’ drive from the coastal resorts of Pollensa and Alcudia. Mancor del Val may only have just over 1,000 inhabitants, but the villagers are very well provided for with all amenities needed for everyday living to include a municipal swimming pool, bars, restaurants, a bank, pharmacy and much more. The village also has a great social calendar of festivals and fairs.
Installing a swimming pool is a reality: Many of the neighbouring properties to Cana Bet have swimming pools and due to the urban classification of the land, subject to standard planning permission, there is no reason why Cana Bet cannot have a swimming pool itself. There is enough garden to accommodate a pool without taking over the entire plot.
The current owners, over the past 20 years have invested a lot of time, money and love into Cana Bet, bringing it up to the high standard of comfort and décor it currently has. Should the new owners of this charming home, install a swimming pool, there is real value to be added and it will be, ‘the icing on the cake!’ Of course, the property can be enjoyed as it is, without a pool – the option is yours!
There is a lot more to tell you about this wonderful property, the municipality it is in and also what is on offer a little further away on the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca…

This charming and very private retreat, Esion, is a spacious and traditional country home where you can escape from hectic modern life. The house is set in 13,000M2 of mainly cork oak and olive trees with a further selection of citrus, nut and fruit trees. Esion was lovingly renovated with care and consideration by its current owner – an author/writer who created a peaceful home and inspirational place to write and relax.
Whilst the immediate location of Esion is a haven of tranquillity, it is not completely isolated from the local community, as the tiny village of La Tojera is only 700M away. The village might be small but there is a shop that seems to sell everything and a bar/restaurant with accommodation and free Wi-Fi. Then, a little further away (9km) is the larger town of La Codosera that has everything needed for modern day living.
Esion, is an off grid, eco-friendly home, powered by solar and fed by a 100 year old water well (spring water) for drinking and topping up the pool and a bore well is used for watering the gardens/land as required.
The property is quite extensive - total construction 253M2 (to include separate buildings). The current owners renovated this lovely home to be light and airy with a very large living room of 60M2 with vaulted and beamed ceiling. Further accommodation comprises: a separate kitchen, a dining room and a bathroom. The electricity for the main house is powered by solar and heating is via a wood burning stove in the living room (there is another chimney situated in the dining room should an additional wood burning stove be required).
Located next to the pool, is a separate building which accommodates two rooms, currently used as occasional guest bedrooms. However, there is currently no bathroom within this building or wiring for electricity supply. Amenities could quite easily be installed if required. The rooms would equally make perfect hobby rooms, home office or artist studio. They are finished to the same high standard of décor as the main house.
The pool is of a high quality construction and not standard in shape to give interest and easy access into the water via Roman steps. It is surrounded by a natural slate terrace and the pool tiles are green so that the pool water blends into natural surroundings.
Additional outbuildings include: The garage, utility room, woodshed and pig pen.
Modern connections and communications are possible: There is mains water in the area. The current owner made the decision to live off grid, however there is also mains electricity locally and the surrounding neighbours have given permission for electricity cables to be laid under their land (the cost of this when quoted was less around €12,000). Telephone and internet connections can be installed by a company in Seville(provided via satellite at costs similar to a land-line) and international TV could either be received via satellite or via streaming on the internet.
Airports: Badajoz airport is the closest at 1 hr 15mins with domestic flights from Barcelona or Madrid (Vueling Airlines). Sevilla is the nearest international airport at around 3 hrs and being close to the Portuguese border, Lisbon is actually a little closer both with budget airlines flying in regularly.

Please see ‘photos’ for a plan of the plot. This ‘Urban’ parcel of land can remain as it is (a productive olive orchard) or can be legally split and developed if preferred. The number of houses that can be constructed has to be confirmed but the adjacent land has already been developed so a precedent has been clearly set.
Please contact us for a price for the urban land as a separate parcel.

Casa Sofia is nestled into the hillside in the mountain ranges inland from the coast at El Morche near Torrox – East of Malaga city, in the Axarquia.
The villa with swimming pool is the perfect hideaway from fast modern day living. A peaceful mountain retreat with views of both La Maroma Mountain (often snow-capped in winter) and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
The villa can be enjoyed immediately as no work is required to the property. All furniture, fixtures and fittings are available too - a villa that is ready to go. Unpack your suitcase and enjoy!
Casa Sofia is a cosy 96M2 and has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms – an ideal permanent or holiday home for a couple who enjoy an adventure and who would relish using a 4 x 4 car to reach the villa on a 4.5km (11 min) track made up of dirt, rough road and concrete. Whilst the town hall keeps the track in good condition, you don’t want to forget to buy a carton of milk from one of the many supermarkets on the coast when living here! Once at Casa Sofia, it is all about country living in a tranquil setting.
The land size is a manageable 1,000M2 which the current owner mainly leaves to nature. However, there are plum, nispero, olive and almond trees.
Casa Sofia is suited to those who enjoy mountains, do not fear the odd steep drop when driving to the property, who want a retreat and don’t need a corner shop or bar/restaurant around the corner. There are a few neighbours dotted around, two English couples who use their properties as holiday home for a few weeks per year and the rest are Spanish, also using their properties for the odd weekend, high-day or holiday.
A covered outside lounging and dining area offers virtually all year round alfresco dining and it is covered with various flowering climbing plants.
Few pass Casa Sofia which makes it very private – those who do are farmers who only pass at harvesting time (a few times per year). This gives the villa a very private feel and when the oleander shrubs are allowed to grow tall, the villa is not visible to anyone – so, skinny dipping is the order of the day!
The villa has modern communications such as – internet and free, unlimited outbound International telephone calls (also includes a special telephone number for those phoning the villa from abroad to benefit from calls at the local rate). Satellite T.V. (UK channels received from the 2nd satellite and newly installed) without subscription or monthly charges.
Mains electricity is connected as is a solar hot water system with back-up for the odd cloudy day! Free and unlimited filtered and softened well water is pumped up to the villa. A private water source that is registered to the property (mains water is in the area but is not currently connected to Casa Sofia). There is a large 25,000ltr water deposit automatically receiving water pumped from the well as required.
For the odd cooler evening in winter, heating is via a wood burning stove and a few electric panel radiators.

If you are looking for a retreat away from the fast pace of modern life and crave a rural Andalucian hideaway, then Casa Sofia could be for you. It would be the perfect place to be inspired and to be creative – to write, paint or enjoy a hobby craft. Of course, you are surrounded by nature...
This very attractive south facing Villa with spectacular views is situated within the well established and much sought after tranquil Urbanisation of El Gato on the outskirts of the bustling inland town of Coin. It is within walking distance of La Trocha Shopping Centre and all amenities and restaurants.
The Villa was originally a farm house but has been tastefully updated and offers plenty of rustic charm but is also enhanced by all modern facilities. The original 60cm walls ensure you stay cool in summer and warm in winter. Also it has UPVC double glazed windows all with retractable mosquito nets and the upper floor has electric persianas (metal blinds). The ground floor has the original rustic wood louvered persianas. The main living area has an economical and efficient JOTUL wood burning stove and all the bathrooms have timer controlled underfloor heating, which makes it an ideal proposition for either a permanent home or a holiday retreat.
The configuration of the rooms gives plenty of scope to use the house in different ways to suit your own needs and because it is on a flat plot, it is ideal for wheelchair access.
The large 31 square meter detached garage has an electric sectional garage door large enough to accommodation the biggest cars. It has all services installed, is insulated and has a ceramic tiled floor. Therefore it could easily be converted into additional living space if required.
We believe viewing is essential to appreciate the many different possibilities it has to offer. The house is guaranteed 100% legal with all the correct paperwork available for inspection.
