Canuto Largo is a stunningly beautiful 840 hectares hunting estate in the Los Alcornocales National Park densely populated with cork and scrub oaks and with abundant flora and fauna. This dramatic gentle sloping, south facing hillside has wonderful views with plenty of natural water features. It is situated outside the classic Andalucian white village of Jimena de la Frontera which itself lies twenty minutes’ drive inland from the famous Mediterranean residential and sporting resort of Sotogrande. Canuto Largo is fully fenced around its 14.6 km perimeter and has an excellent internal graveled road network of 14 kms of principal roads and 35 kms of secondary roads which are regularly maintained and kept in very good condition. The main access gravel road to the entrance to the estate passes through neighbouring property with a fully established legal right of way: the entrance is about 15 minutes from the aforementioned village of Jimena. The estate is stocked with red, fallow and indigenous roe deer and it is estimated around 40 Capra Hispanica (Spanish wild mountain goat) inhabit its higher rockier land. There are still a number of wild Iberian pig, some crossed with wild boar, roaming the estate. With acorns to eat throughout the autumn and winter, these animals are provided with food during the hot summer months so remain healthy throughout the year.

There is one recently rebuilt cottage on the estate but most importantly there are building permits for a main cortijo of over 1000m2 and three further cottages. The permission for these has been granted subject to them being used for rural tourism which can include hunting on a commercial basis. There is no mains electricity on the estate but the houses are designed to be energy efficient. Water is plentiful but is not attached to a mains system so further water deposits need to be constructed once the permitted residential building is underway. A permit for a helipad on the boundary of the estate had been approved.

Cork provides income every nine years and the last harvest in 2022 produced a net sum of €840,000. The total harvest of 11,000 quintales (1 quintal = 46 kilos) is likely to increase for the next harvest due to good forest management introduced by the present owners.

Running costs and full details of planning consent are available to interested parties upon request.

With its almost unique location so close the southern Spanish coast and with such easy accessibility, Canuto Largo is a quite outstanding and spectacular property.
