Hispano Moorish style Cortijo in Villanueva de Rosario with stunning historical features

Stunning Hispano Moorish finca comprising 2 back to back villas, infinity pool, landscaped gardens & flat land ideal for horses. Set in a quiet position close to Villanueva del Rosario, Malaga

This stunning finca is set in a very special area of undulating olive groves, almond groves and large landscaped gardens and paddocks.

Flexibility is key with this property – the main house offers a very comfortable home with a separate villa which is currently rented out for self-catering holidays.

Due to the back-to-back nature of the houses, you can easily convert the whole property back into one large and very impressive residence.

If you are looking for the ideal B&B business – this could be for you or alternatively, if you are 2 separate families, why not have one villa each!

A Moorish theme runs throughout the entire property and modern conveniences blend seamlessly with traditional Andalucian charm.

Located in a tranquil location which enjoys amazing wildlife but has the perfect balance of privacy and peace with just a 10min drive to three local villages and the A92M dual carriageway linking Granada, Antequera and Malaga (just 30mins by car).

The property has been renovated to an extremely high standard and comes with all modern comforts expected such as Broadband Internet with WiFi, Satellite TV, landline phone, mains services – electric and water (plus a huge 18,000ltr water storage unit).

The entire property has a Moorish feel which blends beautifully with the traditional Andalucian style of the property. All original features have been beautifully restored and modern conveniences such as a freeform/infinity pool, central heating, satellite t.v., broadband internet (WiFi) and more have been installed.

This magnificent Cortijo is a property consisting of two houses (separate deeds), built back to back and wrapping around an inner courtyard with lemon/orange trees and jasmine: The two parts of the property are currently used separately – the main house is enjoyed by the owners and the old bakery (the guest villa) appreciated by their lucky guests!

Currently the Old Bakery is used as guest accommodation but it could easily be used to house staff. Alternatively, the main villa can be combined with the guest villa to become one grand house with the use of the interconnecting door.

The “Old Bakery” has been successfully rented for many years and has recently won the Trip Advisor “Certificate of Excellence” which is the best possible recommendation – guests love the environment and we know you will too!

The hedged and totally private gardens around the entire property are mature and beautifully landscaped and the land ideal for many uses. Horses lend themselves to the land due to its mainly flat nature and the riding out opportunities which are far reaching and all off road (equally perfect for walking!).

Privacy is achieved in a haven of tranquility away from main roads yet access is superb – La Serena is conveniently located between 3 towns/villages for all modern day amenities and approximately 10mins to the A92M to Granada/Antequera/Malaga. Malaga Airport is just 35mins by car.

The main house:

Offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of living accommodation, outside space, chill-out areas, character and charm throughout – bespoke windows, original beams, open fireplaces all help to create a warm homely feel throughout.

Outside, the main house boasts an impressive covered terrace for alfresco dining, looking over the mature, formal gardens which lead round to a walled garden, ideally located off the kitchen where vegetable, herbs and flowers are currently grown and boasts a Moorish fountain. From here you are lead up to the impressive roof terrace where the breeze can always be caught and the sun enjoyed to the very end of the day.

Guest accommodation (the old bakery):

In addition to the main house, the attached bakery (with connecting door to the rest of the property), currently offers guests privacy and independence, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen/diner and terrace. This offers the new owners real flexibility for the running of a B & B or a self catering rental property or even for staff purposes. The large old bread oven still exists and is currently used for storage.

Moroccan tent (very similar to a Yurt):

A magnificent Moroccan tent sits proudly on the land and sits 20 people in a circle around the edge of the tent on a soft seating area adorned with an array Moroccan cushions of all colours. This tent is perfect for entertaining and has real wow factor!


Central heating, satellite TV, mains electric, mains water (with an 18,000ltr storage tank), septic tank drainage, telephone and Broadband Internet, WiFi, built-in wardrobes and hand made kitchen and luxurious bathrooms.


The gardens are impressive – plenty of quiet areas to enjoy the views and peace, large terraced areas to enjoy the sun, water features, sculptures, large 11m X 6m free-form infinity pool, an arboretum, BBQ area, outside kitchen and bar area.

There is a very large garage/workshop/storage room and ample parking.

Horse lovers:

Whilst Kathryn and Donald do not keep their own horses, the land is perfect for horse lovers. There is ample space for the construction of stables, the perfect area that lends itself to the installation of a ménage/school and there is a separate, flat paddock away from the formal gardens.
