Experience the richness of Spanish life
Casa Blanco is nestled amidst the undiscovered ‘pueblo blanco’ of Totalan in Malaga. Here you can still enjoy the tranquility and authenticity of the Spanish inland, avoiding the more touristic area of the Costa del Sol. Though the ocean is a 15 minute drive.
The white building is placed on the hill overlooking the village and mountain landscape.
Casa Blanco is specially designed by a world renowned architect. The minimalistic style in combination with art and spectacular views to the Spanish Sierra and sea beyond, gives the house a special touch.
Miami based with passion for architecture
This special piece of architecture is built by German-American architect Simon Ungers Son of one of the most prolific German Architects of the 20th Century, Mathias Ungers.
Casa Blanco was Simon’s last design before his death.
It was a gift to Margarita, one of the owners. Together with her husband they decided to built it after Simon’s sudden death. One of the reasons why the house is a very special place, commemorating a gifted architect.
The art in the house is handpicked by Margarita, who is an art collector. She has been passionate about art since she was a child. Part of the collection is in Casa Blanco. Other part is in Miami were she and her husband are homebased.
Margarita is an Architect herself and also specialized as Landscape Architect. Currently she is Director of an international landscape firm based in Miami.
So no need to say that architecture is in her blood.
Before letting built the house, Margarita and her husband spent many summers in Malaga visiting family. The choice for the undiscovered white village of Totalan was an easy one for them. Avoiding the crowd of the Costa del Sol, enjoying the tranquility and pureness of Totalan while having the (not crowded) coast at 15 minutes distance as well as the hub of Malaga’s centre at its proximity.
Regularly Margarita and her husband trade Miami for Totalan.
When they are not there, they rent the precious villa so that other people can also experience Casa Blanco and the environment.

Totalan lies 22 kilometers from Malaga and 9 kilometers from the coast at Rincon de la Victoria, at an altitude of 290 meters.
The village is located within the area of Axarquia, on the scenic Route of the Raisin, and has a population of 800.
The small municipality of Totalan is crossed north to south by the stream of the same name, and spreads its irregular and elongated surface between the Axarquía region, to which it belongs, and the Hoya de Malaga (Malaga Valley).
A terrain mainly of hills and ravines whose plant cover is made up primarily of olive and almond trees, brush and pastures, and only along the riverbanks are there a few orchards and market gardens.
The Totalan stream only flows part of the year but sometimes has very high water. There are very few historical records available with which to reconstruct the history of Totalán before the Christian conquest, and they are not plentiful even after that event. It is known to have belonged to the “alfoz” (district) of Málaga, and it is also known that there was a tower of which practically nothing remains today. It is documented, however, that in 1483, a few years before the fall of Malaga, El Zagal defeated within the boundaries of this municipality part of the Christian army that advanced along the route of the Totalan stream towards this area from Antequera to attack the Muslim force camped near Moclinejo. The Arabs received timely warning about the Christians’ approach and emerged victorious from the confrontation.
