Canillas de Aceituno , Village house – € 99.500

Casa Roberto has been in the present owners family for many years.

The house dates to 1950 and has a history from Spain’s dark ages.

In fact, under the house was an actual shelter where people went into hiding during searches.

The old double wall can still be seen. Today, the cellar is used as a bodega for the barrels of the typical sweet country wine. The house is located a few steps from the lively main square in the center of the town.

The property is located in Canillas de Aceituno, one of the attractive white villages at the foot of the Sierra Tejeda and Almijara Natural Park. It is a unique area for hikers and other mountain sports enthusiasts.

You can even reach a height of 2079 metres on La Maroma, the region’s highest mountain. From the heart of the village starts the new hiking trail ‘El Saltillo’ between Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella, where you cross one of the three highest and longest suspension bridges in Spain.

In the village, you can find all the amenities you need for everyday life.

There are a host of restaurants and bars where you can go for a delicious meal or a drink on the terrace. Within 25 minutes, driving through beautiful countryside, you can reach Vélez-Málaga and the beach of Torre del Mar.

 The city of Málaga and the airport are a 45-minute drive away and Granada, plus the Sierra Nevada ski resort, can be reached in about 2 hours.


Through the authentic Spanish door with shutters, you enter directly into the typical Spanish living room (4.90 x 3.10m) with a fireplace, and adjoining there is a bedroom/study (3.65 x 2.55m) which could easily be integrated therefore creating a larger living room.

 The hallway leads to the upstairs entrance and the simple kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob, extractor hood and space for a fridge.

The bathroom is simple in design, but easy to enlarge by extending into the terrace.

The courtyard garden (11 x 9.10m) has sufficient space to create a very nice lounge area with outdoor kitchen/BBQ and a swimming pool.

The garden also offers plenty of privacy as there is little visibility from the houses around you so has great potential for a relaxing outdoor area.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor.

The first bedroom (2.60 x 3.05m) is located at the back of the house and there is a spacious master bedroom (4.90 x 3.70m). Here there is also the possibility of creating an ensuite bathroom.

On this level there is another terrace (4.90 x 5.30m). This space could also be converted into an extra bedroom or bathroom.


This property offers many possibilities to transform it into a fine village house with authentic elements and the opportunity to adapt it to modern day living.

It is a great project for people with vision and Second Home Andalusia can help you to create your ideal Spanish home.

The house can be used for full time living or as an investment in the holiday rental market in a village that is very popular for hikers and nature lovers.



With around 320 days of sunshine per year, Andalusia and especially the Axarquí region, is one of the best areas to live in Europe.
