Casares - Spain
There are places that never seem to change. Places like Casares in the south of Spain. Although the world famous and bustling tourist resort Costa del Sol is less than 15 kilometers away the small Andalusian village Casares has almost not changed at all during decades. Not even during the big "tourist boom" on Costa del Sol. Now Casares and Manilva are very attractive areas on Costa del Sol for property buyers looking for a second home in Spain.
The city Casares is officially considered a Historic-Artistic village since 1978 and is one of Andalusia's best conserved mountain villages where the traditional small white Andalusian houses offers views and scenery of the traditional villages in the south of Spain. About 3000 inhabitants are living in Casares today.
The small town Casares is rich in history: Casares is well worth a pleasant half-day excursion. Some claim that the city was founded by Julius Caesar, but it is not proven. What is certain is that the coins were made in Casares during the Roman Empire.

The Church "La Encarnación" in Casares was built in 15 century and is well worth a visit, as well as the chapel dating from the same period. Small restaurants in genuine south Spanish style and with friendly prices are easy to find in Casares.
The camera is absolutely a must when you visit Casares. Casares on Costa del Sol is a great place for photography. Nowhere else is it so easy to take the very best pictures of the typical Andalusian white mountain villages and typical Andalusian houses.
In Casares you can see the ruins of an Arab castle and the Roman baths that were built to enjoy the therapeutic properties of the village's spring waters has to offer. They are said to be sulfourus and alkaline-magnetic.
Casares is maybe not a well known place to most of the visitors to Costa del Sol and remains quite unspoiled. But Casares is actually starting to become more and more popular among tourists and also among property buyers looking for authentic Spanish life and reasonable property prices on Costa del Sol in the south of Spain.
Casares is really the perfect place for all of them: Casares is located only 15 minutes from Costa del Sol and surrounded by mountains and absolutely beautiful scenery. The village Casares is very close to Manilva and Estepona and from the sunny beaches on Costa del Sol. But Casares still remains as a typical south Spanish village in the mountains with a very relaxed atmosphere, absolutely stunning views and pretty Andalusian narrow streets climbing up between small white houses. Just like on a typical postcard from a lost village in the mountains in southern Spain: That is Casares!
Casares used to be only a day trip to a typical Spanish village from the tourist cities along Costa del Sol but now the area around Casares is very attractive among property buyers looking for more quiet areas and reasonable property prices in areas close to Gibraltar, Estepona, Marbella and other locations on Costa del Sol.
In fact, the booming property development in Manilva, Estepona and Casares really has changed the concept “Property on Costa del Sol” the last few years and now you do not need to invest a fortune to buy a second home in Spain: Just look around and take your time to visit for example Casares instead of concentrating all your energy looking for a property bargain in the most well known areas on Costa del Sol.
