La Acedia , Casares – an idyllic rural valley inland from Spain’s Costa del Sol

If you're looking for property in Casares, please click here to search in our Costa del Sol property database.

The La Acedia valley in the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja mountains is arguably the most beautiful of all the inland rural residential areas on Spain’s Costa del Sol – and there are some amazing properties for sale here.

I mean, just take a look at this picture below, which I took last week after the recent winter rains had subsided and the first signs of spring had reached the valley.

La Acedia valley, Casares, Costa del Sol

It’s only 10 minutes inland by car from the coast, and yet once you head down into the valley down the dirt track from the main coast to Casares road, you could be forgiven for thinking you were heading in to deepest rural Andalucia, such is the feeling of absolute calm and tranquillity here.

And of course the surrounding landscape and flora and fauna are quite spectacular to behold too.

It´s a unique place where quite literally, local Spanish families who’ve lived in the valley and worked its land for generations live next door to northern European stock broker millionaires in impossibly picturesque country houses.

That´s because although La Acedia may feel like it’s a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar, in actual fact it’s close to the services and amenities of both an almost irresistible combination for many foreign buyers.

But this is no millionaires´ playground with properties on sale priced well beyond the reach of us mere mortals.

Far from it.

Here it’s still possible to pick up a decent-sized country pile with land for a lot less than you might think.

For example, we have some gorgeous properties available in the valley that are very reasonably priced, especially considering their location and characteristics.
