210102 Small Family Business Furniture & Kitchen with Large Show Room - La Linea near SOTOGRANDE – Costa del Sol
This company is a small/medium size family business.
From leading brand furniture to quality kitchens plus the finishing touches, clients are bound to find something they love for their home at this modern two floor showroom.
They’ve been helping customers create beautiful homes since 1990.
To mark three decades of fabulous styles for every room they’re launching quality design.
Back in 1990 three friends decided to open a quality furniture shop with the
philosophy – to offer high quality, beautifully designed furniture at a great price with exceptional service.
In the following years one of those friends decided to withdraw and since then the company is run by the two remaining shareholders and family.
Back in 1990 the owners started in a rental premise of 900 m2, until 2008, when they purchased a modern building located in the best commercial area : 1 km from Gibraltar and 15 km from Sotogrande.
Growth has remained stable despite having weathered two severe economic crises: 2008 the worldwide Bank Crisis and 2020 Corona Pandemia
Nevertheless, their philosophy remains the same – and they are still a family run business offering prime service.
This company is located on the costa del Sol, 1km from Gibraltar surrounded by typical Spanish towns such as San Roque, Santa Margarita, Castellar de la Frontera, Guadiaro and near various prestigious (expats) residential areas
British overseas territory occupying a narrow peninsula of Spain’s southern Mediterranean coast, just northeast of the Strait of Gibraltar, on the east side of the Bay of Gibraltar (Bay of Algeciras), and directly south of the Spanish city of La Línea.
Just one look at a map will tell you that Gibraltar is very small. Because of its size, the Rock boasts just 29km of roads. But Gibraltar isn’t just Britain with sun. It has its own unique culture made up of different elements from Mediterranean countries.
With an unemployment rate of only one per cent and a GDP of £1.5 billion, Gibraltar is one of the most affluent places in the world. The economy is based on shipping trade, the online gaming industry, and the financial center.
On the southern coast of Andalucía, Sotogrande is the chosen destination for residents and visitors alike seeking to reconnect with family, friends, and themselves.
Its understated elegance provides contrast and a change of pace, allowing to enjoy life with no pretenses. At this distinctive year-round retreat on the Costa del Sol, barefoot luxury and a unique lifestyle is provided.
For a change of scenery, one can find the bright lights of Marbella – just a 30-minute drive away.
Privacy, security and connection with nature is the order of the day in the gated communities. A place of endless possibilities, where one can spend time in complete peace and tranquility; where time seems to stand still, far away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle.
Region/ La Alcaidesa
This is a very special urbanization of residences located next to golf courses in the area. A closed area, in a very quiet place. Just 15 minutes from Gibraltar.
Unique residences on the first line of golf and close to the beach with incredible views of the sea, golf and the green lung of La Alcaidesa (Guadalquitón natural reserve).
From the beginning, the owners set out to create a one-stop shop
for all client’s home furnishing needs. Sofas in soft-to-the-touch
leathers and fine fabrics, dining sets for every taste, in marble, wood, ceramic and glass. Beautiful beds one want to sink into and fabulous accessories to complete
All the furniture is provided by the most representative national manufacturers.
Creating a newly fitted kitchen is a professional challenge.
Together with the client the advisor will choose the best, attractive, functional and unique kitchen.
They offer infinite options to choose the best finishes. Kitchen countertops in marble, in Corian, in Silestone. Lacquered kitchen cabinets with or without handles, which will incorporate the best storage systems. Cupboards, showcases, and furniture for the laundry and ironing area, made to measure and in the best qualities.
It starts with a free design consultation with one of their professional kitchen fitting specialists.
Once the design is approved, a detailed estimate will be sent to the client.
After the signed agreement, the cabinets and accessories are ordered from the most forthcoming national kitchen manufacturers and fitting at client´s home can be started.

- 40 % is from (expat) residents in the surrounding áreas such as Sotogrande, La Alcaidesa, La Linea, Guadiaro, San Roque, Santa Margarita, Castellar de la Frontera
Future strategy would be to implement new digital technologies.
Expand marketing strategy towards a wider expat clientele by offering so called
“Furniture packs” for rentals or new homeowners.
Or uplift the range by offering exceptional luxury furniture brands, maybe from abroad.
Same for the kitchen cabinets, looking for extra exclusive designs and finishing and state-of the art home appliances.
CONCLUSION AND PRICE
This easy to run family business is on the market for
1.780.000 euro including FULL PROPERTY of the 1.700 m2 premise
Note: The owner would consider selling the business without the full property (it will then be rented at monthly base by the new owner) which would reduce the acquisition price considerably
