Cantora is the name of the estate where the Malaga singer Isabel Pantoja lived with her husband Francisco Rivera, better known as Paquirri, a very successful bullfighter in his time. It is a country-style home, like the one sold by Oprah Winfrey. Recently, she and her son Kiko Rivera, have sold this property, which has a very special meaning for the singer.
“My favorite thing in the world is to come here, to heal my battle wounds,” he used to say when talking about this one mansion . After the sad passing of her mother, there was nothing left to tie her to her, so she sold her. Discover what this house has to offer!
A confrontation with his son over the sale of the mansion
Kiko Rivera, who shared ownership of the house with Isabel Pantoja, wanted to sell it practically from the first moment, and that led to a very unpleasant confrontation with his mother. The Malaga singer wanted to wait at least until her mother’s death to sell the house, and for a considerably lower price than that set by Kiko.
Currently, the house is in a more neglected state; since the mother’s death of the Malagueña, no one has moved into it. However, it continues to have the same potential. This is well known to buyers, as it is located in a privileged area of Cadiz, surrounded by a completely natural environment and with a more than guaranteed privacy.
What does the Cantora estate have to offer?
The property was a dream in the life of the bullfighter Paquirri, as he always wanted a livestock farm to live with his family. It has 2,000 meters built, counting the driveway at the beginning of which you can see a sign with the name of the address. It includes not only the family home but also some industrial buildings used for agricultural and livestock exploitation. Paquirri was a countryman with a passion for animals and nature in general, and the characteristics of Cantora prove it.
Among the amenities that the house has, we can find a games room with gym and sauna included, a spacious storage room to store all kinds of things, two garages, offices and even a square that is used to select the future bulls and suckler cows. This process is known as tienda de reses and is based on the bravery and strength of each animal. In short, it is a complete rural property that the new tenants will surely enjoy for many years after a necessary renovation.
