PROPERTY AT A GLANCE Are you looking for a long-term investment that matures like a fine Spanish wine to increase in value whilst enabling you to enjoy living in a tranquil and peaceful environment surrounded by fabulous countryside in a stunning area of natural beauty with breath-taking landscapes offering a taste of "Real Spain" an area dubbed Costa Blanca´s "Jewel in the Crown" by the British travel press.
Owning a vineyard is a part of almost everyone's dreams whether you want to make the wine yourself or simply sit back and enjoy the benefits and this unique opportunity allows the discerning investor to buy a vineyard with renovations and permits for further expansion or conversion into a total residential building if preferred with the relevant permissions.
By purchasing the land and obtaining all the full permissions you can create your very own wine business and also include olive oil production as this falls under the same permissions as the wine plus a separate rural tourism holiday rental business, the choice is yours.
PROPERTY DETAILS The purchase price is for a 27,000m2 plot of land and "permission" to build a 4/5 bedroomed 4/5-bathroom stone-clad Finca style property (372.64m2). Designed with an open plan living concept in tune with today´s family and home entertaining lifestyle requirements to include lounge, dinning and kitchen connecting the spaces for family togetherness; plus, a separate guest toilet and utility room. The external layout includes a courtyard, two balconies, summer veranda/porch plus a 12m x 5m swimming pool. The new buyer will have to have permissions changed into their name via the current owners architect.
Designed in an energy efficient manner, primarily solar panels, batteries and a generator all approved to include the amount of required wattage. On the land there is also an existing ruined finca which could be renovated into a studio or separate guest/holiday accommodation subject to approval.
The large wine bodega/cellar (347.47m2) includes space for a lab, toilet, production, bottling and storage. This can also be used for olive oil production as it would fall under the same permissions as the wine. This is all subject to obtaining the correct full building permissions.
The owners have already worked the land clearing scrub, building and fixing the dry-stone walls and tending to the vines and olives to ensure they are nursed back to their former glory. The existing vines are Grenache and Tempranillo and there are also olive trees, fig, apricot and walnut trees. The owners have licenses to plant new vines and olive trees.
There is also a schedule of work from a local farmer to work/ farm the land if the new owners require.
LOCATION The plot of land is located 3km from the main town of Jalon. Only a 30-minute drive to the cosmopolitan city of Denia, and a 15 to 30-minute drive to the nearby coastal towns of Javea, Calpe, Moraira, Altea, Oliva, Gandia and an array of blue flag beaches and coves.
Jalon (Xalo in Valencia) is a lovely picturesque town in the stunning Jalon Valley widely known as the valley of wine (Vall de Pop). Being the biggest of all the villages in the valley Jalon has an array of various shops including artisan, a large supermarket (Mas y Mas), excellent butchers who make their own sausages with recipes handed down from generation to generation, bars, restaurants, cafes, pharmacy, local and international medical centres, bakeries selling cakes and pastries made from the local almonds to the famous savoury Bollas a type of pizza made with peas, several bodegas offering Moscatell a semi sweet wine which has won national and international awards, Mistela a dessert wine once a favourite of the King of Spain, cavas, full bodied reds and various whites all which can be tasted for free before purchase, plus locally made olive oil. Jalon is also famous for its Saturday Rastro market which is huge and diverse in what bargains you can find and purchase. In the Old Square of Jalon, Plaza Major, there is a fountain around which there is an open market held on Tuesday mornings and artisan markets held on certain Saturdays throughout the year. Seen from the square is the famous Jalon Church with its blue dome.
Jalon was under Arabic domination for over five hundred years. The Arabians built two castles, one for the Solana (the Aixa) and another in the Bernia. Both fortresses controlled the Jalon Valley and the numerous settlers. The Arabians left behind the typical house style, for which Jalon is famous today, i.e. houses of stone and old bricks with large wooden doors as well as decorated walls. The Arabic culture influenced life in Jalon up to its final displacement in the year 1609. After that the trade with raisins became the major economic activity. Many farmers from Majorca settled in Jalon in the 18th and 19th centuries and started cultivating the land, concentrating on grapes and raisin production.
Jalon hosts several “Fiestas” in particular the first two weeks in August with bull running, live music, dancing, fireworks and the third week in October which is the local Paella Fiesta.
There are local Spanish schools in Jalon and private International Schools within a short 20-minute drive that also offer a school bus service.
Jalon has a sports centre and the area is both a walker and cyclists delight with routes for all levels. Horse riding, and golf are also activities that are within easy reach of Jalon. There is also an outdoor communal swimming pool open in the summer months for the locals to meet and enjoy.
In late January the whole of the Jalon valley floor is covered with a pink and white carpet of scented almond blossom attracting visitors from all over. You´ll find that time and life in Jalon is not measured by a clock but by the slow ever-changing colours of the beautiful countryside.
Despite its semi-rural setting access to Jalon remains easy thanks to the AP-7 motorway being within 5-10 minutes. Alicante airport is 1hr away and Valencia airport 1hr 20 mins. There is also a local bus service from Jalon to the city of Denia which passes through the villages on route and from Denia you have a ferry service to Ibiza, Formentera and Mallorca.
Jalon has three smaller neighbouring villages close by surrounded by the grapevines, almond, orange and olive groves. The surrounding mountains offer a magnificent back drop to what is a stunning area of natural beauty with breath-taking landscapes offering a taste of “Real Spain” an area dubbed Costa Blanca´s “Jewel in the Crown” by the British travel press and with an average 320 days of sunshine per year.
Extending from Alicante, the Northern Costa Blanca stretches for miles up towards the city of Valencia and within a short 20 to 30-minute drive from Jalon you will find a wealth of clean blue flag sandy beaches and coves to explore.
This area of the Costa Blanca has the best all year-round temperature with a climate that is recognised as one of the best in the world by the World Health Organisation.
