Cortijo Los Balates is a home of outstanding quality, in a mythical and unspoilt nature park, just around the corner of a vibrant community.

The cottage was built in 2005 on the site of the hundreds of years cortijo, maintaining the character and ambience of the ancient home. It offers basic modern comfort within a surface of 120 m2 - which makes it an extremely precious find in the National Park.

The house consists of a kitchen/living room (25 m2), 2 bedrooms (16 and 12 m2), bathroom, store room as well as a spacious studio with second bathroom and terrace to accommodate your guests.

The finca is situated in the Natural Park Sierra Nevada at an altitude of 1350m and has mesmerizing views over Las Alpujarras and on a clear day you will marvel at the Mediterranean sea bathing in the sun.

The open and welcoming village of Yegen, famous for Gerald Brennan's classic "South from Granada", is reached within 10 minutes distance and has all daily necessities at hand: grocery, bakers, primary school, exceptional municipal swimming pool, medical assistance, passing fish van, markets and a couple of lively bars. A wider range of services and shops you can find in 2 charming villages within a 20 minutes drive.

Almerķa airport is within a 2 hours drive and Malaga airport at 2,5 hrs. You could be swimming in the Mediterranean within an hours time.

The fertile land (totaling about 7 hectares), water rights and large water reservoir opens many possibilities to garden, grow your own food or even crop commercially, even in the driest of summers. The finca has been ecologically certified by CAAE for over 15 years.

The land consists of 3 hectares of flat agricultural land lined with young fruit trees (apricot, cherry, pistache, quince, pear, figs, walnut, etc.) and vines, 2 hectares of productive almond grove and a couple of hectares of wild herbs and bushes with lots of wild thyme, lavender etc. At this moment, it is home to 26 productive beehives.

The cottage has access via a 2,5 km track from the main road.
