Many years later it was expanded into a beautiful and secluded villa by its eccentric and reclusive new owner. At that time the only access from Fuengirola to Alhaurin was by means of a winding dirt track. When he discovered that the track was to be made into a road, he was furious and soon afterwards sold the villa to a restauranteur.Permission was granted for a grand country inn but unfortunately the company fell on hard times and it had to be sold. The property became overgrown concealing the magnificent villa from the outside world. The derelict house was ransacked, and later taken over by hippies. They lived by selling scrap metal and farming pigs.This was its condition when the present owners bought it in 2001. The structure was still grand and embedded solidly into the mountainous rock. Armed with a vision of how majestic the villa could be, a massive expansion was envisaged. Detailed drawings were made and eventually building permission was obtained. So began four years of renovation where every detail and design was meticulously planned. This is an amazing property, designed like an English Fort Rural Hotel, it has full licences to be a Rural Hotel and is currently been run as a very successful business as a wedding venue and short term Holiday rental.It took the current owners many years to complete the property and the theme throughout is in line with an English Fort, with hanging tapestry's and rustic furniture.If you are looking for a ready made business then look no further, currently booked out until end of September this property gives you an instant income.However, if you want a private country residence, then this property will meet your needs in addition, in the lower grounds there was once stables, that now have been converted in to a 2 bed self contained apartment, but could easily be returned to stables.There are many features to this property including, solar hot water, aircon, heating, heated outdoor swimming pool, bar and games room.
