  • Description


    I am Farshid, I am originally from Iran and have lived in Sweden for twenty years and I work mainly online as a translator. I came to Spain in 2018 and was looking or a house for about three years. I finally found this property and its like a dream come true. The house is old and small but has two bedrooms, small kitchen and bathroom. I like working out in the land but I would really like some help as I live alone here. I want to plant trees, create a water system, paint, a bit of construction maybe, some carpentry, Im open to ideas! The house is ten minutes walk from the bus stop that can take you either up to Mijas Pueblo (10 min on bus) or Fuengirola (beach town/city 10 min on bus).
    There are 5000 square metrers of land most of it on a slope.
