I am selling my 2 hectares of land (5 acres) in L'Ametlla de Mar, Catalunya, Spain. It is fully terraced in stone and planted in mature, producing olives. It is located 20 minutes drive inland from L'Ametlla de Mar.
- Located just inside the Tossal de Montagut protected natural space so you will never see new construction going up anywhere within eyesight or earsight of the land
- Has a modest view of the Mediterranean Sea (see photos)
- A home can legally be built in the footprint of the two existing structures, up to 60 square meters in size.
- 20 minutes drive to L'Ametlla de Mar, loved for its fresh seafood and beautiful natural beach coves
- By train or car, 45min to Tarragona, 1.5hr to Valencia, 2hr to Barcelona
- Completely off-grid, as are the few other homes in the surrounding area. At night you can see the stars (all of them.) Totally quiet, the only thing you will hear is nature.
- One home is visible from the property. It is a vacation home and sits empty most of the year. In Google's satellite view you can see it just to the north of the property.

A natural building architect based in Barcelona quoted me an estimate of 60.000 euros to build a strawbale home on the land, similar in layout and size to the attached blueprints/drawings I created.
I did my PDC final project using this land so I have attached the permaculture design I created for it, so you can get a feel for what one might be able to do with the land.
I purchased it a few years ago and up until a few months ago my plan was to live on it. However, we live in a different world now and I have decided it would be better to buy land in near where my parents are and build my homestead there. I love this piece of land and I adore Spain (I lived in Barcelona for 5 years) so it breaks my heart to sell it... but staying in the US is the best path for me, now.
I purchased it for 34.000 euros (40.000 all told including taxes, title, and escribano) so I would love to be able to recoup the costs. But I am flexible. Any questions, please post them here in the forum so that others can see the answers. Please purple moosage me with any serious offers, after all your questions have been answered.

Hi! On this parcel, no permit to renovate is required, as long as anything built is built within the footprints of the two preexisting buildings, and the new building/s do not exceed 60 square meters in size or 5 meters in height. I confirmed this information in person with an architect at the ayuntamiento.
