Welcome to Casa Contenta in 2024

It is a pleasure to welcome this new year full of promises and projects. In 2024, we embark with renewed energy and dedication to continue to bring you our best in real estate and its experiences.

And for those of you who still haven’t come to terms with the fact that it’s 2024 (almost February, time flies!), we remind you that here at Casa Contenta we make sure that every day is worthwhile, and good for taking a next step.


Sale of Cortijos – to find your piece of peace

Our passion for traditional farmhouses in Almeria has priority. This year, we still present a selection of architectural gems. Each cortijo tells a unique story and offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Almerian countryside. Our commitment is to guide you through this process with the personalised attention that characterises us. Nothing is perfect as they say but close to it.

Holiday and Midterm rentals: Winter In The Sun

For those looking to escape the routine, our holiday rental properties offer the perfect setting. From cosy flats by the sea to luxurious villas in the mountains, we have taken care of every detail to ensure that your holiday will be simply unforgettable. Some of the properties are perfectly suitable for home office and digital nomads. Let us be your host and guide you.

Services: make your investment worth while

We understand that investing in property in Spain can be new to you. That’s why we’ve expanded our range of property management services to make your investment easier and more profitable.
From maintenance to letting, we can take care of everything so you can enjoy the benefits of your investment without worry.

Project in 2024: go further and be aware of the future

This year, we will be embarking on new projects aimed at modest growth and improvements. We are also looking to utilise innovative ways and technologies to depict and describe the stories of the houses and their surroundings as clearly as possible. This simply requires patience and concentration, as the images should reflect what is ‘behind’ the property. This does not mean the usual home staging, but its reality.

We are also planning to expand our portfolio of quality properties to offer you more choice and options.

Stay connected!

We are looking forward to all the surprises that 2024 will bring and we are willing to be part of the journey. Keep an eye out for our posts throughout the year; we have blogs prepared with inspiring stories and useful stories that we are sure you will love. At Casa Contenta, we are offering you properties, with certain standard and style, and we want to share this with you!

We would be proud to be your choice when it comes to property in Almeria. Every client is unique and we strive to offer customised solutions that may even exceed your expectations. And because we speak four languages, we could help you even if you have already found your property. We will be happy to help you.

Not forgetting the International Association of Professional Women Property Agents, which allows me to put you in touch with trusted agents throughout Spain. AMPSI offers expertise for any size of property, throughout Spain, as well as for mortgages and major investors. A great support when it comes to good contacts!

This 2024 promises to be another of new experiences and achievements. We thank you for your trust in Casa Contenta Almeria and look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to find out how we can help to make your dream of a home in Almeria come true!

With gratitude,

Margaret von Schiller and all those who collaborate with Casa Contenta Almería.


Creating identity: reliving the beginnings of Casa Contenta and the creation of the logo


This year, I decided to start our blog by recalling the beginnings of Casa Contenta and to share with you the birth of our distinctive logo. It all started with a question that has resonated in my life: “Where do I come from”?

Margaret and Marisa.

As a carpenter and restorer of antique furniture, I also inherited a passion for old buildings from my father, a passionate architect. Although I initially left this vocation to explore the world of cinema, I returned to my roots in 2006 after the loss of my parents. At the age of 50, full of energy, my first step was to restore my parents’ farmhouse, a 200 year old building, and the second step was to work on the house of my friend Chris Fenwick, of the Dr. Feelgood, near the beach in Almeria.

Starting a project is always an exciting and significant step. For us at Casa Contenta, this journey began not only with the sale of cortijos and property management, but with the vision of creating homes that resonate with the beauty and authenticity of the environment around us.

When we decided to embark on this project, we weren’t just selling properties; we were weaving stories into the tapestry of the land, capturing the very essence of life in Almería. In each cortijo, we saw more than stone structures; we saw the possibility of happy homes, immersed in the warmth of the sun and the rich history these lands have to offer.

Farmhouse sales and real estate thus became an adventure of discovery and connection, where each new property was a window into the richness of the surroundings. The importance of this environment cannot be underestimated; it is the backdrop that gives life to every story, every corner of our homes.

From there, the path was cleared to Casa Contenta. It was a small step towards an immense experience in real estate, a fascinating learning process that I still love to this day.

In our journey through Casa Contenta Almería, we have always believed in the magic of small things and big questions. The spark of our brand was ignited by an intriguing question: “Can a house be happy or only the people who live in it?

This question became the seed of our logo, an image that represents more than just a design; it encapsulates the essence of who we are. Created with my right index finger in one of my first iPhone apps, this modest gesture became the face of Casa Contenta.

Mugs with early versions of the logo.

Our logo, with its distinctive palm tree and a house in the background, is not just an image; it is a story in itself. The palm tree, with its leaves waving in the Mediterranean breeze, symbolises strength and resilience, fundamental characteristics of every property that bears the Casa Contenta stamp. The house in the background is more than a structure; it is a home that holds stories, laughter and unforgettable moments.

We are constantly evolving, and our commitment to bring the best of us through our logo is reflected in every detail. The only things missing are the GIF and the Casa Contenta emoji, but I’m working on it, I promise. 🌴

This 2024, as we explore new frontiers in farmhouse sales, holiday rentals and property management, we carry with us the story of our logo. It’s not just an image; it’s the visual manifestation of our commitment to creating homes that exude happiness.

I hope you enjoy this little story as much as I enjoyed living it. At Casa Contenta, every corner tells a story, and we are happy to share them with you.

Stay tuned for more publications we have planned for this year.

May happiness and history remain our key in 2024!

¡Happy 2024 and welcome to Casa Contenta en Almería! 🎄🌟

The best way to restart our blog is to wish you a happy 2024!

At Casa Contenta Almería, we want to share the warm essence of life in the south of Spain and of course, our services.

These days, we reflect on the importance of thinking positively and looking to the future. Here in Almería, our greatest desire is to connect with positive and excited people, whether to find a new home or enjoy a relaxing winter holiday in the warm south of Spain.


We feel lucky to be located in an Andalusian province that is still counting on natural resources and impressive protected natural parks. From its pristine coasts to the Sierra Nevada mountains and its characteristic desert, Almería offers a unique opportunity for those looking for more than just a place; … they look for an experience.

This blog will not only be a space where we will share details about properties and opportunities, but also where we will explore the cultural wealth, natural beauty and unique charms that make Almería a special place.

Therefore, we want to express our gratitude for being part of this community. Every connection, every consultation and every shared dream drives us to continue offering the best of Casa Contenta.

May 2024 be filled with light, love and positive moments. And may the coming year bring you new opportunities and success.

With love

Margaret de Casa Contenta 🏡✨
