If you aren’t yet familiar with the area, Guaro is a charming inland white village nestling on the edge of the Sierra de la Nieves National Park, and at 350 metres above sea level you can imagine the fantastic views! So, it will come as no surprise to learn that the village is home to Grapevine Properties’ team and HQ.
Guaro is one of the few areas where there are no new urbanisations, which means it’s perfect for anyone looking for rustic properties for sale in Spain, but not the best place for anyone interested in the more modern apartments for sale in other areas of the Costa del Sol.
The Spanish landscape is dramatic and mountainous and baked in sunshine and the people are equally exciting, which why every town and village has their own unique traditions and fiestas. Every September, Guaro’s residents take part in the Luna Mora festival, during which the streets throughout the town are lit up by thousands of flickering candles. There is a colourful selection of stalls, tents, food and drink… and of course live music. It’s a spectacle that you should see at least once, if not once a year!
Guaro is worth considering if you are looking for great value Spanish country property for sale that offers the opportunity enjoying the open countryside and outdoor pursuits. Located adjacent to National Park means you would never be short of countryside and hiking trails, and the village is surrounded by swathes of almond and olive groves. In fact, there is even a busy olive mill where fresh olives are pressed.
If you are keen to immerse yourself in the laid-back Spanish lifestyle and rich culture, Guaro would be great start, unlike many of the coastal towns and villages on the Costa del Sol with large expat community, 90 per cent of the population is Spanish. There are also plenty of local businesses, such as a garage, doctor, dentist, shops etc. And of course, there are bars and restaurants. As a small community of around 2,000 everyone knows each other, making it a safe and family friendly place to start a new life in Spain.
Guaro is located just 50 kms from Malaga’s international airport (around a 1-hour drive) and just 35kms from Marbella, if you fancy experiencing the glitz, glamour and beaches.
