Spain Rural retreats...rural places of interest, Art Holidays, walking and adventure, around Molinicos & Elche de la Sierra, Castilla La Mancha. Links to rural villages of Spain and hidden areas to explore. 
From those little old ruins in the mountains, to converted farms and villas...the perfect starting point to discover "that Dream" with plenty of local tips and information on buying and moving abroad...it is not as difficult as you think? This is a rural site, and we are not interested in Golf courses or big holiday developments...keep it small, traditional and do not spoil wonderful Spain. Live with the culture.

Doctors in rural areas...
"I damaged my leg on a Sunday...went to the little surgery in Molinicos (a remote mountain Village)...there was a doctor a nurse at lunch time. They also dispensed medicines direct from the surgery...and made no charge for this service" Thank you. Francis (paco) Adey.
Spain is undergoing real problems with the slump in the market, but if you can buy it is a good time to invest. There are many real bargans in land and property. I list a few places to look below.
Land Grab...The problems about land grab are only in certain Northern regions, not in elche in la mancha, and are only related to new homes on the coast, old properties are not at risk!
On average the Coucil tax is about 300 euros PER YEAR in rural Spain...and they collect the Bins twice a week!
Lovely properties in Sierra Segura Mountains...near Rioper, Molinicos, elche de la sierra in the southern district of Albacete. For those who don't know, and want to try Spain, Casas Rurales, are the Spain version of B&B & self catering, combined in a traditional casa, which is normally far less expensive than a Hotel. (ask about them in most bars)  Click on the trusted links below...or look for rurales in your area of choice. From Elche, to Yeste, passed fantastic lakes and views, on your way  visit the lovely Village of Penarrubia, Hostal Posada de Peñarrubia near elche is great...ask for Victor who speaks English. Delfin and Carmen (owners) are true Spanish, and cook up a great meal. On your way to Riopar (with spectacular water falls),  Molinicos is a great mountainVillage, with great outdoor activities.
