The house itself is located in Castellon and dates from the eighteenth century and rests on the foundations of an old Moorish farmhouse. It has a colourful history: local legend has it that the writer Blasco Ibáñez found sanctuary here in the early twentieth century.

A unique opportunity to acquire an exclusive country estate steeped in historical interest, occupying a spectacular mountain setting on the site of an ancient olive grove, where oil was pressed for many centuries.

Following thoughtful restoration around ten years ago, the interior provides a wide array of delightful traditional features, with exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings throughout.

The main house spans approximately 1,400 m2, comprising ten bedrooms, each with its own bathroom (including some suites), multiple spacious reception rooms, a kitchen with breakfast area, a cosy library and a separate groundsmen’s cottage.

Currently used as a boutique hotel, this exclusive country estate is being sold as a going concern with significant income-generating potential. All necessary licences for tourist accommodation and horse riding have been obtained by the present owner. With its own spa, massage room, infinity pool with chill-out area, equestrian facilities (stabling, riding hall and 11 paddocks), space for outdoor sports and activities and even a charming private chapel, it is perfectly equipped for hotel use, but this haven of outdoor living would also make a magnificent family retreat.

Much of the estate is carpeted in olive trees and forest, offering wonderful hiking trails with views of its own nearby reservoir (a lovely picnic spot) — photography enthusiasts will be in their element. Perched high on the hillside, a hammock area is a blissful spot for the less energetic to drink in the scene.
