Offers invited! Luxury home AND / OR Very profitable & established holiday complex – 7 bedrooms & 6 bathrooms in total – beautiful pool – tourism licence – occupation licence – Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park, Casarabonela, Malaga. Walking distance to a popular bar/restaurant… This immaculately presented holiday rental complex with B&B potential is surrounded by the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Park. It is a very successful and profitable self-catering holiday rental business (with potential to make even more income if desired): A tourism licence is in place (ref: VTAR/MA/1069) so there is scope to make this villa work for you exactly how you want it to! Additionally the property has been transferred into a Spanish registered company, (SL), making the purchase of the company very tax efficient, and no need to pay the normal 9% purchase tax, and the running of the company equally tax efficient, saving around €60k, and with the help of an exceptional local accountant in place if required. Currently, 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms are holiday let with substantial self-catering living accommodation – let out as one large property (for extended families or groups of friends to holiday together). The owner lives in the completely independent 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with private garden and roof terrace whilst she runs the business for her holiday rental guests. The pool is large and solar heated (kidney shaped 10M x 5M) and takes in the most stunning mountain and countryside views, truly a spectacular landscape immersed in nature. The self-catering holiday accommodation currently generates around €50,000 per annum (over a six month period) with tax efficiency in place to maximise net profits, currently open for an extended summer season, more income potential for all year round rentals, weddings, events etc. Holiday let the ‘owners’ apartment also and make even more income. The first floor apartment has its own garden and roof terrace. With the installation of a Jacuzzi on the terrace or in the garden – suddenly the entire property becomes very desirable to holiday let. Everything a discerning holiday maker expects to find in a high end holiday rental property has already been put in place by the current owner. The buyer could walk in and enjoy not only the property for holidays themselves but also the income generated for the rentals. There is a superb accountant in place so you can sit back and relax whilst the accountant ensures you make as much money as possible in a tax efficient way. Successful marketing is set up and can be taken over by the buyer. A repeat client list is available to be handed over to the buyers if desired. Future bookings where deposits have been paid are already in the diary and will be handed over at the time of the sale. An already well established business that can simply continue with the new owners. All contents for the holiday rental are available to the buyer – a ready to go option! There is a property management company in the area should the buyer wish to rent out both the villa and apartment whist being off-site – enjoying the property as a holiday home themselves. Change the business into a B&B if preferred – the tourism licence and fiscal transparency of the business makes life easy for the buyer if they wish to run any kind of tourism business. Immaculate legal paperwork to ensure a smooth sale/purchase transaction The property has a habitation licence from the town hall to accompany the legal paperwork which is in a very good state (as well presented as the property)! This is so important and should ensure a purchase proceeds quickly and easily (at a pace convenient to both buyers and seller). Superb access – complete privacy – not isolated – walking distance to a bar/restaurant Access to the property is very good – via a 0.7km track of excellent quality. It is wide enough for two cars to pass, well maintained, flat and does not require a 4 x 4 vehicle. The track joins the main road that will whisk you in all directions. Whilst the location is peaceful and stunningly beautiful you can still enjoy a night out or lunch in the local bar/restaurant. A 25 mins’ walk brings you to the friendly and welcoming venta (bar/restaurant) serving local dishes (good home cooked food). If you or your guests want to walk there and have a few drinks, the owners of the venta will return you home as part of their service! The villa is not completely isolated as there are 7 neighbours in the area (respectfully far enough away to ensure complete privacy but there for friendship and a sense of community). Privacy, peace and a tranquil setting with beautiful views – owners and holidaymakers alike can enjoy this special environment. The villa comes under the municipality of Casarabonela – 15 mins by car and there is the choice of the villages, El Burgo and Ardales also 15 mins by car. The lakes of Ardales (commonly known as the Malaga lakes) and El Caminito del Rey/El Chorro are just 25 mins drive away with lake beaches, restaurants, water sports and fishing at the lakes and the famous new cliff hugging, precipitous board walk of El Caminito del Rey. Malaga airport and the coast is 55 mins drive and Ronda and Marbella 1 hour. The coastal beaches of the Costa del Sol are 55 mins’ drive. The Andalucian cities of Sevilla and Granada are 2 hours’ drive.
