El Salt is a rural property built at the end of the 19th century. Originally it was built by a French family, looking to found an industrial business. 50 years later it was one of the top paper factories of the region. The plot comprises 5 houses in the middle of Tuscany styled gardens, a greenhouse, and old paper factory, a tennis court with stunning views, a pool and a fountain of spring mountain water.
This is the perfect property to develop a Hotel & Spa. First, because of its location in a natural reserve and secondly, because Alcoy is known for its gastronomy, cycling and hiking activities and is located near Alicante’s best beaches. The property has a source of mountain spring water and a big orchard.
This property has occasionally been used as an event venue for weddings and events by people who know the area, so it has the possibility as a business too.
A third option is to construct a luxury urbanization of townhouses as there are 8500 m² of land that can be built on.
Alicante is one of the fastest growing cities in Spain. Its economy is based upon tourism from the beaches along the Costa Blanca coast, and from the construction boom which began towards the end of the 90’s.
