Lovely 4 bedroom Villa in Las Casicas, near Fortuna . This superb villa is located in a small hamlet just a few minutes from the town of Fortuna with all amenities. It is a truly unique property that combines the charm of the old with a more modern feel. A magnificent covered terrace offers superb views of the surrounding mountains.
As you enter the house, the whole of the left-hand side has retained its old-world charm and features a living room with a pellet stove, a living room and an underground bedroom that stays cool all year round, as well as two storage rooms carved out of the rock. On the right, in the modern part, there is a small dining room, a bathroom and a spacious fitted kitchen. This part has a second floor with three additional bedrooms, one with a large dressing room and a bathroom.
The exterior also offers a car port, a summer kitchen, a workshop and space to build a beautiful swimming pool included in the price (8x4 classic). If the buyer is not interested in a swimming pool, the price will drop by €10,000. For the moment there is an above-ground pool. It is connected to mains water, electricity, internet, satellite TV and has three reversible hot and cold air conditioning units. Fifty minutes from the airport and beaches.
The town of Fotuna is just a short 10 minutes drive away and is famous for the abundance of its hot springs. Water, scarce in this area, flows freely in Fortuna, giving rise to a number of fountains such as la Higuera, la Cueva Negra or los Baños, thermal springs that were already popular in Roman times and which have today converted Fortuna into an important spa town.
The history of the town goes back to Iberian settlements, the remains of which can still be seen in outlying districts such as Caprés, Castillejo or Cortao de las Peñas. The Arab domination is still visible in the Castillico de los Moros (Moors’ Castle). The town’s cultural heritage is enriched with the Baroque-style Parish Church of La Purísima, the Convent and the Town Hall (which conserves some beautiful panneaux), all constructed in an aesthetic modernist style.
The surrounding countryside (at times desert-like) is covered with the water that flows from its thermal springs. Visitors can admire the Cortao de las Peñas (two mountains split apart by the movement of the earth), or the Humedal del Ajauque and Rambla Salada, protected wetland areas of great beauty.
