Live the dream and create a business in Tollos
That's what we wanted to do when we opened L'Antiga Escola in Tollos, back in 2001. And we succeeded: for eleven years customers came from local towns, the Costa Blanca and from as as far away as Alicante and Valencia to eat excellent food and enjoy a day out in the unspoilt countryside of the Vall de Seta.
But then we retired and turned our attention to other things. We've always intended to sell the restaurant, but haven't tried all that hard - Spain was badly hit by the recession so it wasn't a good time to sell, and we got used to using it as an extension of our dining room when we had guests or family visitors. Apart from that, you do get used to coffee made on a proper espresso machine...
However, the years go rolling by and it's time we got serious about selling. We have reduced the price and are now offering the restaurant for €220,000. That's for the two adjoining properties - a total of 405 m2 - with all fixtures and fittings.
We converted the first building, originally the village schoolhouse, into a restaurant in 2001. Business expanded and we acquired the house next door, which, after renovation, became part of the restaurant in 2005, providing it with a stunning south-facing terrace and large covered terrace suitable for group activities.
In addition to the main premises, there's a small apartment on the top floor, plus approximately 100 m2 of unconverted space suitable for further development.
The building has everything it needs to continue operating as a restaurant, but it could also be used for other activities, such as a yoga retreat, an artist’s studio or a location for painting, walking or writing holidays.
