Running a B&B in Spain can offer the perfect mix between business and pleasure for the discerning buyer
For most people, the dream of moving to the sunny climes of Spain represents a complete lifestyle overhaul: an escape from the humdrum of the 9-to-5, an opportunity to work more sociable hours and the chance to retire the suit and tie. Since many new expats will be planning to buy a house anyway, opening a bed and breakfast could be an ideal way to earn an extra income – indeed, even a full-time income if your property is located in the right spot.
This past summer, the Spanish economy has displayed its resilience and tourism figures are almost back to pre-pandemic levels. With several areas placing restrictions on the number of private rentals open to holidaymakers, it’s an ideal time for would-be B&B owners to realise their aspirations of a new life in the sun.
7-Bed Finca, La Murada, Alicante, Spain
All genuine offers over 200,000 euros will be considered.
The 7-bed property is currently being run as a successful B&B so all the tourist licences are up to date.
The Finca has a private pool, stunning mountain views and is only a 10 minute walk from the town of La Murada and a 30 minute drive from Alicante and Murcia airports.
The gated estate leads to two separate properties: the completely renovated and self-contained 3-bedroom cave house comes complete with a bathroom, lounge and kitchen. The separate villa features a large lounge area with a separate kitchen. The hallway leads to 3 double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, two of which have en-suites.
Surrounded by mountains and countryside, there is a large and private outdoor space equipped with a bar, toilets and BBQ facilities.
5-Bed Finca, Orihuela, Alicante, Spain
Surrounded by orange and lemon groves and nestled among fragrant olive and almond farms, this stunning finca offers 360-degree views of the mountains and countryside. The nearby village of La Murada, which offers a generous choice of traditional Spanish bars and restaurants, a bank, supermarkets, chemist and medical centre, is only a kilometre away and the property is ideally located for cycling, walking, bird watching and nature or wildlife enthusiasts.
This holiday rental opportunity includes a lovingly restored 19th century cave house, as well as a purpose-built house set in lush tropical gardens, with private pool.
The cave house consists of four spacious bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, as well as a separate dining and living room with a log burner and full kitchen. A terrace BBQ area is perfect for guests who enjoy outdoor dining and the property comes fully furnished and equipped with everything required to continue trading.
The private house consists of large bedroom with lounge area, bathroom, kitchen and dinning room and generous balcony, as well as a panoramic rooftop garden.
The property has the required tourist licence and has racked up 10 years of top class reviews on all of the most popular holiday accommodation websites.
This show-stopping finca is on sale for 339,000 euros.
