Cortijo las Higueras is a charming home and part of a friendly, rural community in the heart of olive country – 1hr inland from Malaga city and famous for Hojiblanca olive oil. The property has a rural setting but enjoys being included within the hamlet of La Parilla, a hamlet on the outskirts of the bustling small town of Villanueva de Algaidas.
Access is excellent – off a small, well maintained, tarmac country track that passes in front of the property on the way to a few more properties. This gives easy access to the property with no need for 4 x 4 vehicles for yourself or guests (with only a few cars passing every hour or so). Services are good too with mains drainage and reliable broadband internet at reasonable prices.
Being part of the community is made easy as there are two bar/restaurants within strolling distance. They serve simple, home-cooked meals and tapas at very reasonable prices. There are ferias and fiestas throughout the year and many ways to get involved and join in with local activities. A school bus collects and returns children to and from Vva. de Algaidas for the schools.
The property has a warm and welcoming feel and would make a wonderful family home or it can continue to be run as the successful holiday cottage business it currently is.

The current owners are open and honest people and are happy to sit down with any potential buyers to go through accounts and share information. All the contents of the self-catering cottages are included in the purchase price as are the website and any future bookings already made plus repeat clients who return year-on-year. A hand-over of the business is also offered to any buyer who would like to take advantage of this offer. Currently, the business generates an income of upwards of 20,000 per annum.
