Ready-Made, Quality, Guesthouse for Sale
An exceptional opportunity to purchase an already successful, ready-made business close to Alora. Offering accommodation for up to 13 guests across 5 separate guest units, the guest house has an enviable reputation and is in a superb location with great road access. It is surrounded by olive groves and has spectacular views to historic Alora Castle and the whitewashed pueblo, Guadalhorce Valley and Sierras beyond.
Traditional Country House
The imposing property (originally built more than 200 years ago) was extensively refurbished in 2000 to become the successful B&B that it is today. The current owners have run the guest house for the past 15 years. The buildings and grounds tastefully reflect Andalusian style with natural stone pathways, brick edged terracotta terraces, arched windows and traditional ironwork.
Fully Licensed & Operating
For sale as a going concern, the sale price includes all furnishings, fixtures and fittings as well as all rights to the business, its name, online assets (website, social media etc) and licenses.
The guest accommodation comprises 5 separate units, comfortably sleeping 13 people (with the option for guests to request additional beds in a number of the rooms).
Set up for guests staying throughout the year, each of the guest accommodations has air conditioning and heating and all windows and doors have mosquito blinds too.
In addition, guests have access to a large reception area (with honesty bar), a double aspect dining room and a guest lounge with comfortable sofas and a
wood burning fireplace.
Outside, there is a tennis court. A gorgeous covered entrance terrace with striking, wooden, French double doors into the main house has space for guests to dine in comfort. The large (10m x 5m) swimming pool with outside shower and mature (fully-irrigated) gardens and lawns all bask in the backdrop of the spectacular
views across the Guadalhorce Valley to Alora Castle and the Sierras beyond.
Parking is plentiful.
