First Floor: Landing, 3 bedrooms, balcony and bathroom
Stables: 77 m2
The land has its own water supply from a 90 m deep well. ( Registered Well ) The electrically operated pump installation produces a minimum of 5 litres per second (even in summer). Under new regulations, electrical power has to be produced by solar panels, but there is an electrical transformer only 250 meters from the finca.
Access to the land belongs to the property but passes through approx. 200 metres of the "Instalaciones de Intur Joven" (a hostal with small cabins to rent) with a Reception at the main entrance providing 24 hr security (no extra costs incurred for this service).
