Finca for sale in Casarabonela
- Built200 m2
- Plot50000 m2
Old farmhouse, great character, very large plot and superb views.The main house is around 100 years old and most rooms have exposed beams and wooden panelling.
This old farm property sits on the top of a hill, and enjoys spectacular views all the way to the coast. The property was extended some years ago, and this was done to match the previous style. The plot is very large at almost 52,000 m2, and the land is predominantly planted with almond trees. The property is about 20 minutes from the town of Casarabonela, and the main A357 Malaga road can be reached in about 10 minutes.
Bordering Antequera and Ronda municipalities, Casarabonela has the staple Moorish roots, Christian past and agricultural make-up that defines much of this part of the world, somewhat off the beaten track but still under 50 kilometres from Málaga capital.
Olives play a major part in the village's economy: the surrounding hills are almost exclusively given over to olive groves and every 12 December the locals celebrate the annual harvest with an effervescent “Fiesta de los Rondeles” procession.
With such an abundance of natural resources, villagers and visitors alike are keen to make the most of their local environment.
Fascinating Valley Landscapes
The mountains are a veritable playground for hikers, horse-riders, mountain-bikers and casual walkers, rewarding the intrepid with rarely glimpsed views of the neighbouring valleys and distant horizons. A trek through the cool shade of the forest is the perfect way to enjoy an invigorating start to your morning.
In the town centre, an enduringly strong sense of community has helped engender a fascinating range of local commodities in the “High Street” – the ideal way to pass a pleasant afternoon, after savouring delicious traditional cuisine on one of the many al fresco dining terraces scattered throughout the village's plazas and courtyards.
As in most “sleepy mountain villages” in Andalucía, nightfall brings with it a common conundrum: retire to bed early, read a book accompanied by a post-prandial liqueur, or drive to a larger town. Fortunately, as we have noted before, this is Spain and even sleepy mountain villages stay open after sunset – with many establishments welcoming revellers until well past midnight.
