Rural Property In Spain

Rural Property in Spain is very popular due to the great value for money it offers. Read our Inland Property Guide to learn about life in Rural Spain and further information on buying Spanish Property in these areas. Rural Spain offers some different property types than the coast.

A Spanish Finca is basically a Spanish house in the Country with land. Typically, a Finca has 10,000m2 of land or more, although there is no set rule on the amount of land you get.

To be considered a family home, Spanish Fincas often need a fair amount of work to be carried out on them, however they are typically very good value for the amount of Property and land you get. Many home buyers in Spain look at Fincas as a renovation project and build in the renovation costs to their purchase budget.


A Cortijo is a Spanish Home located in a rural setting, however the difference between a Finca and Cortijo is sometimes difficult to spot. Generally, a Cortijo is a more upmarket Property usually offering stables or similar extras.
