Excellent property in a very popular urbanisation within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants and just a few minutes by car to the village of La Vinuela, yet only 15 minutes to the coast. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, a lounge/dining room, fully-fitted kitchen, 3 double bedrooms and 2 family bathrooms. There is an integral garage (which can easily and inexpensively be turned into additional accommodation) and parking for 2 cars. There are plenty of sunny terraces surrounding the pool and awnings in 2 different areas to give shade when required. There are superb views across the countryside to the distant mountain ranges.
The village of Alcaucin is located on Costa del Sol, 54 kilometres from Malaga and 20 kilometres from Velez-Malaga. There is a daily bus service to both destinations. The village lies at a height of 508 metres above sea level and has a population of about 1.500 inhabitants. It nestles on a hillside in the foothills of the Sierra Tejeda mountains. The mountain pass at Zafarraya, a gigantic V shaped opening in the sierras is clearly visible from the town and is a characteristic part of the local landscape. The village of Alcaucin is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and pine forest. In the middle of the town, reached through narrow winding streets, the church of Nuestra Señora de Rosario is to be found, it was built in the eighteenth century. The hermitage of Jesus del Calvario, another interesting building, is located in the higher reaches of Alcaucin and from this part of town there are stunningly beautiful panoramic views of the village and the countryside. Alcaucin has some popular bars and restaurants and enjoys excellent access from the coast and the new coastal motorway.
