Land and Amenities
There is a main road approximately 3 km from the heart of the land with a country road providing access to the development site. Due to the age of the buildings, mains services such as water, electricity and mains drainage are not connected; however there are a number of ways in which these services can be brought to the cortijos. The land also benefits from several wells built in strategic locations around the site.

Development Strategies
The Town Hall is willing to support development that complies with the General Master Plan. The permitted uses include leisure, tourism and recreational and in order to develop the land for one of these uses, a special planning agreement may be negotiated. 

It is also possible to rebuild and extend each of the cortijos, subject to local planning regulations. The Town Hall has indicated that there is potential for further intensification of development in the Cortijada (the area surrounding cortijos 1 -7 in the Site Plan).

The relevant authorities may allow the new owner to forego the rebuilding of Cortijos in consideration of building a new and substantial single structure elsewhere. This may take the form of a rustic hotel or holiday chalets.

The land could also be developed for the construction of a large private residence and this area would offer the ultimate environment in terms of privacy, security and natural beauty.

Located over the 690,000 square metres of land are 16 derelict Cortijos, each with their own land. A cortijo is a typical traditional Spanish home that is often found in a rural setting. People often get confused with the difference between a Finca and a Cortijo. Generally, a Cortijo is a more substantial building, often with out buildings such as stables, and have more land. The 16 cortijos have all been properly registered and the cortijos, including the land, range in size from 23 to 178 sq m. 

The cortijada is a group of cortijos that could be compared to a small village or urbanisation. The cortijada is located right in the centre of the site and consists of cortijos 1-7 which are densely packed together. The views from this particular location are spectacular and it is likely that a prospective purchaser would want to focus his development around this area.

Unspoilt Beautiful Sandy Beaches
Mojacar has been a holiday resort for more than 30 years. It has more than 17 km of unspoilt, beautiful sandy beaches.  It is an excellent area for sailing, fishing, bowling, tennis, golf, water sports or simply relaxing on an uncrowded beach soaking up the sun. Mojacar has the warmest annual climate in the whole of Europe.  The sun shines for approximately 3,000 hours per year to give an average temperature of 20 degrees Celsius.

Historical old Mojacar Town
High on a hill is the picturesque, romantic old town of Mojacar with its narrow streets and courtyards overlooking the Mojacar Playa. From here there are spectacular views of the beach and the Mediterranean Sea and this old town has inspired creativity for artists and writers who have used the town as a focal point throughout the ages.

Some of the best Golf Courses in Europe
This part of Spain boasts some of the best golf courses in Europe with a wealth of 18-hole courses within easy reach. 

Marina Golf Mojacar combines flat fairways by the sea with spectacular mountainside terrain to test the skills of the most proficient golf enthusiasts. 

Desert Springs, Almeria's stunning course, designed by Walker Cup Captain Peter McEvoy, was the first desert course to be built in Europe. With lush fairways, water features and harsh desert terrain, the course rivals the famous desert courses of Arizona and California.

Horse Riding & Pony Trekking
For people who enjoy horse riding, there are two nearby riding centres - Cortijo Kupanda in Los Gallardos to the north of the town on the road to Garrucha and Rancho Cabrera in the Sierra Cabrera mountains which provide the magnificent backdrop to the resort.
