Fancy a complete change and the chance to run your own small holiday business in the heart of the beautiful Lecrin Valley, Andalucia? We have an amazing opportunity to buy a fully licensed, charming complex of five lovely properties, set in a rural location that offers the perfect combination of privacy and company, with the benefit of an existing successful business that already gets excellent reviews.
For sale is the Alojamiento El Valle, a fabulous rural holiday complex consisting of five houses, set in a rural location on the outskirts of Durcal, Lecrín Valley, just 20 minutes from Granada and half an hour from the Costa Tropical.
The property is currently arranged as a private family home with private swimming pool, generous gardens, garage and stunning views PLUS four separate, fully equipped rental houses, with another large swimming pool, Finnish sauna, communal gardens, parking and all licences in place!
The total plot size is 1410m2, of which 518m2 belong to the private home and the rest make up the communal grounds and separate holiday homes.
The current owners have built up a successful business, having carefully renovated the entire complex, which has resulted in impeccable tourist accommodation in an unbeatable setting. Unsurprisingly, the holiday homes receive regular glowing reviews.
Solar panels were installed in 2020 helping to reduce running costs and minimise the environmental impact of the facility. Satellite TV and WiFi are also available throughout the premises.
The five houses are all named after trees found thriving on the premises.
Casa el Nogal is entirely separate with its own street access, parking, private pool and large garden. The other four are situated in generous shared south-facing gardens, set apart from the main house.
The current owners have chosen the house that is separate from the others as their permanent residence, as it has two entrances; one from the street via the spacious private garage, and one via the garden door from the shared accommodation gardens.
The house comprises of a spacious open plan dining/living area with fireplace, a newly fitted kitchen, equipped with the latest appliances and a large cave room that’s perfect for storing fresh food and wines. It also has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The other 4 houses differ in their character and capacity:
1. Casa El Laurel sleeps 6 to 8 people, and offers a twin bedroom and 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other one with a shower. There is a lounge with a sofa bed for additional guests and a dining area with a fireplace. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, gas cooker, coffee maker, and microwave. This house has a large private terrace with beautiful views of the valley.
2. Casa El Olivo sleeps 2 to 4 people and offers 1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom with a shower and a lounge with a double sofa bed and a wood burner and dining area, The kitchen integrated in a corner of the living room is equipped with: crockery, cutlery and other kitchen utensils, fridge/freezer, stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, kettle, electric juice squeezer and all the necessary utensils for 4 people. In addition, it has a lovely private terrace with views.
3. Casa El Limonero sleeps 2 to 4 people and has 1 double bedroom, a bathroom with bath, open plan living/dining/kitchen and a private terrace.
4. Casa El Pino Azul also sleeps 2 to 4 people and has an ample private terrace, 1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower, an open plan living/dining room with double sofa bed and a well-equipped open plan kitchen with views to the pool area and the Rio Durcal gorge.
The owners have thought of everything to make this business run smoothly, and as well as the accommodation itself, there is also a welcoming reception area with an office and seating and a bathroom, secure parking within the complex and a laundry room for guests’ use.
The shared gardens are beautifully maintained and connected by a network of paths around the various seating areas that allow guests to relax and enjoy the wonderful views across the impressive Río Dúrcal gorge, a saltwater swimming pool (4m x 10m), Finnish sauna and barbecue area. These beautifully arranged grounds and facilities will ensure that guests can enjoy a luxurious and intimate holiday.
As night falls, visitors can stargaze from the purpose-built domed astronomical observatory, complete with computerised telescope, making the most of the absence of light pollution in this pristine setting.
The current owners have created a vegetable garden for their own use and also invite their clients to pick their own organic vegetables and cut fresh herbs if they want to barbecue. There is also a variety of fruits available from the trees in the gardens, including oranges, lemons, mandarins, pomegranate, figs, avocados and even walnuts.
Various outbuildings provide space to practically store all equipment necessary to maintain the accommodation and grounds.
Alojamiento El Valle is located on the edge of a stunning river gorge in our beautiful Lecrín Valley – conveniently situated almost mid-way between the Costa Tropical and the City of Granada. Views from the complex are spectacular, looking south across to the terraces of almonds, olives and citrus groves and to the east the snow-capped mountains of Sierra Nevada. The town of Dúrcal which offers a full selection of restaurants, bars and shops is less than 2 kilometres away.
Perfect for active holiday makers, there is an abundance of different routes and tracks for walking, mountain biking and horse riding, although due to the stunning and peaceful setting, guests are just as likely to find themselves relaxing in the gardens or by the pool most days.
The property is sold fully furnished (apart from personal items in Casa El Nogal), ready to continue and develop the business.
While the current owners live on the complex in the main house, if you wanted to maximise income potential, it would also be possible to choose a smaller house as your own base or indeed live in the nearby village and keep the rental property business as an entirely separate entity within easy reach for daily visits.
The complex is in a prime location for tourists all year around, with the vibrant and historic city of Granada and its famous Alhambra being a convenient 20-minute drive, the Mediterranean coast 30 minutes to the south, and the ski station in Sierra Nevada just 50 minutes away.
The new owners will benefit from the reputation built up in recent years, with ratings on the major portals such as 9.9 (exceptional) on Booking.com, 5 (out of 5) Excellent on Tripadvisor and 10 stars on Clubrural and a 9.5 (excellent) on Trivago.es.
So, if you are looking for a holiday complex in Andalusia, without the drama or expense of having to undertake major renovations and without the uncertainty or bureaucracy of obtaining licences, then this is your chance!
Whether you run it as a corporate getaway, retreat, artist holidays or just keep it as it is; a simple family friendly, boutique holiday complex, there is just so much potential… All you have to do is, buy it, turn up and take over!
