With its glorious natural scenery, warm climate, welcoming culture and low cost of living, Spain is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most desirable places across the world to live or visit.

Located in the heart of extensive olive groves, this recently renovated town house in the charming hamlet of Los Pérez is ready to move into and would make a perfect holiday home or permanent residence. Although it is in a beautiful rural setting, the house is not isolated as it is only 10 minutes from the motorway network and approximately one hour from the coast and the vibrant cities of Malaga, Seville and Cordoba.
This 2/3 bedroom property benefits from ample free parking just steps from the front door and has the added benefit of a secluded patio which is unusual in Spain. It is connected to mains services (water, sewage, electricity) and internet is available in the village along with mobile phone coverage.
Entering the house through the newly fitted front door, you will find a bright entrance hall which is decorated with traditional Andalusian tiles and gives access to the ground floor accommodation.
To the left is the compact but functional kitchen which is fitted with a range of modern units and has connections for a washing machine and table top dishwasher. The newly renovated double-glazed window has a mosquito net and an external blind.
Directly opposite the kitchen is the cozy dining room which also has a recently refurbished double-glazed window with mosquito net and exterior shutter. If desired, this room could also be used as an additional third bedroom or home office.
At the end of the entrance porch is the spacious and bright living room that gives access to the outside patio and the first floor through a staircase. This large living room is at the heart of the home and is perfect for cozy evenings or entertaining friends and family.
Go through the door and you will enter the enclosed courtyard that is secluded from the gaze of your neighbours. This semi-covered area has recently been repainted in a traditional white color and is a real sun trap.Large enough for a small above ground pool or Jacuzzi, there is also ample space for a shaded seating area to enjoy those warm summer nights. Orange, lemon and fig trees complete this quiet Mediterranean space so unusual in a town house.

The bathroom, to the right, has been recently remodelled with modern sanitary fittings including a bath with shower, toilet and sink with useful storage. The connection for a bidet is also in place if you wish. There is a large storage cupboard that houses the modern electric water heater.

The master bedroom is located to the front of the property. This recently redecorated large and spacious room features a Juliette balcony and enjoys the morning sun.Although currently used for storage, it would make a fantastic master bedroom.

ABOUT THE AREA
La Roda de Andalusia is 35 kilometres from Antequera.
A visit to this historical Andalucían town is a journey almost 5,000 years back in time, beginning with the Bronze Age and the native Iberians. The timeline is there to be followed in this fascinating city’s profusion of burial mounds, dolmens, Roman baths, a Moorish Castle, Gothic churches, Renaissance fountains and baroque bell towers.
The first sighting of Antequera in the distance is that of a typical medieval town, with the spires of her many churches and the walls and towers of the great Moorish fortress silhouetted against the sky. Spread out in the valley below lie rich farmlands irrigated by the Guadalhorce River. For centuries this has been one of Andalucía’s most fertile areas, and is currently a leading producer of asparagus, cereals and olives. In summer, its fields turn brilliant yellow with sunflowers.
Andalusia is a large autonomous region of hills, rivers and farmland bordering Spain’s southern coast. It was under Moorish rule from the 8th-15th centuries, a legacy that shows in its architecture, including such landmarks as the Alcázar castle in Seville, the capital city, as well as Córdoba’s Mezquita Mosque-Cathedral and Granada’s Alhambra palace.
The scent of orange blossom, the swish of a flamenco dress, the glimpse of a white village perched atop a crag: memories of Andalucía linger. Immortalised in operas and vividly depicted in 19th-century art and literature, Andalucía often acts as a synonym for Spain as a whole: a sun-dappled, fiesta-loving land of guitar-wielding troubadours, reckless bullfighters, feisty operatic heroines and Roma singers wailing sad laments. While this simplistic portrait might be outdated, stereotypical and overly romantic, it does carry an element of truth. Andalucía, despite creeping modernisation, remains a spirited and passionate place where the atmosphere sneaks up and envelops you when you least expect it – perhaps as you’re crammed into a buzzing tapas bar or lost in the depths of a flamenco performance.
Part of Andalucía’s appeal springs from its peculiar history. For eight centuries the region sat on a volatile frontier between two faiths and ideologies: Christianity and Islam. Left to ferment like a barrel of the bone-dry local sherry, Andalucía underwent a cross-fertilisation that threw up a slew of cultural colossi: ancient mosques transformed into churches; vast palaces replete with stucco work; a cuisine infused with North African spices; hammams and teterías (teahouses) evoking the Moorish lifestyle; and a chain of lofty white towns that dominates the craggy landscape, from Granada’s tightly knotted Albayzín to the hilltop settlements of Cádiz province.
