Unique Country estate with equestrian project with 50 bedr. Hotel, Casares

This is a truely unique country estate with an approved project for a residence, a rural hotel and an equestrian center. It is conveniently located, close to Casares, with good access from the main road at only 20 minutes from Sotogrande and 30 minutes from Marbella. The plot of over 100 ha. of land offers stunning views over the Genal valley and towards the village of Gaucin. On a clear day you can see the peak of Gibraltar and the Atlas mountains in the distance.

Building on rustic land is highly restricted these days. It is therefore quite exceptional to find a large plot of land with the possibility to build, so close to the coast. The natural beauty of the surroundings is spectacular. Wandering over the grounds you will find many old olive trees who have been preserved, as well as different types of oaks. The vegetation furthermore counts with a wide range of species, amongst others the wild asparagus and wild orchids. Driving to the top of the plot you will be amazed by the views, the tranquility and the spectacular natural beauty of this area. Even though the plot is located in the hills, it has many flat areas, very suitable for grazing. The estate already has various paddocks in place. All with a proper wooden fence and an automated water-system. Water is provided by several wells and boreholes. Electricity is on solar power at present yet there is easy access to connect to mains electricity.

There is an old traditional cortijo or farmhouse on the plot, which restauration forms part of the project. You can see that the original building goes back a long time in history. One of the arches seem to date from the Roman era.
