Nerja and Cómpeta town halls are both seeking investors to purchase and take on the management of holiday accommodation which they each own in the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama mountains.
Cómpeta owns La Casa La Mina, which has been closed since 2014 and boasts 20 bedrooms, while Las Casas de los Mineros in the La Fuente del Esparto area of the national park belong to Nerja town hall and the doors have remained closed since 2015.
Both town halls hope put contracts for the complexes out to tender before the end of this year. However, as the national park belongs to the Junta de Andalucía, they would also have to give the green light to any potential buyer.
Nerja town hall has said that it hopes to attract interest by offering “more favourable conditions” than before. A successful complex runs in the part of the mountain range belonging to Alcaucín, where the managers run five bungalows and pay 6,000 euros to Alcaucín town hall annually.
