Albuñuelas isn’t a village you just happen to drive through. You have to make a point of going there.

The charming little village of Chite is one of the Lecrin Valley’s smaller villages with only around 300 inhabitants. It’s beautifully looked after and kept to the highest standards by the residents. Its tiny streets wind down the hill towards the lower barrio, cemetery, citrus orchards and olive groves.

In January this year, we sold a great house in Pinos del Valle to Jacqui and Alistair Cornford, a lovely couple who currently live in Saudi Arabia, but who were looking for their own slice of Lecrin Valley heaven to use as a holiday home and rental before retiring to it at some point in the future.
Recently we went back to visit them to see what they’ve done with the place, and it was so lovely to see them so happy and proud of what they’d achieved, and to see their re-energised and renovated home. Being part of a client’s journey and seeing them so settled is why we love our job.
