Property Summary

Welcome to the land of Clint Eastwood and the Spaghetti Westerns! This house can be seen in the films of the famous trilogy (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars, and For a Few Dollars More), maybe Clint actually came into this house ....

It is a rural house which has been sympathetically restored, keeping many of the original features, such as the rustic front door and the windows. Both ecology and economy were in mind during the renovations, and a solar panel provides all the hot water for the house, and underfloor heating in the bathroom. This underfloor heating is pre-installed in the sitting room.
The total property is about 110 square metres, with the actual building being 100 square metres, it is believed to be about 150 years old, the oldest escritura (deed) is dated 1971.
The current owners have installed a new bathroom (modern, while keeping a rustic feel) and a new kitchen (Ikea) within the last 2 years – both are ecologically-friendly installations.
The kitchen is 5m long, with lots of storage, including a pantry.
There are two double bedrooms, each of which has a smaller room to the back (which can be used as dressing room, storage etc)
there is a sheltered terrace directly from the kitchen, and stairs lead to a large roof terrace.
The large roof terrace (with sea glimpse!) has electricity and water, and already has a fridge under cover. This roof terrace could be extended if required.
There is mains electricity, and mains water and drainage.
There is an aljibe (water tank), fed by rainwater run-off or from the mains.

Albaricoques is a charming village just on the edge of the Parque Natural Cabo de Gata – Nijar. It has a small shop, supplying fresh bread and other essentials. The Hostal Alba (www.hostal-alba.com) is famous, not only for its traditional tapas and amazingly good value “Menu del Dia” (three courses, plus wine, for about 10 euros), but also because it has lots of the original props from the spaghetti westerns, many of which were filmed right here in the village. You can still see the threshing circle which provided the finale in “For a Few Dollars More”.

The nearest beach is only 15 minutes’ drive away, and there is a choice of another 8 beaches within 30 minutes’ drive, including the famous beaches of San José (Genoveses, Monsul, Media Luna, Cala Carbón etc). It’s only 7 minutes to reach the A7 motorway, making Almeria city reachable in 40 minutes, and Almeria International Airport in just 30 minutes.
