Business potential:

The Villa El Balate, legally built on urban land, is offered with a rural tourism and valid planning permission to extend the villa with 200 m2 and convert it into a Bed & Breakfast or 2 detached chalets of 100 m2 each can be build for rental purposes, which is a rare opportunity in the countryside. It has a great potential for a very sizeable income.

In addition and for an extra of € 90.000 a further 500 sq meters of planning permissions can be included. This additional development possibility would in no way impinge upon the main house. It is truly an unrepeatable opportunity and is a simply beautiful property.
