Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday cottage in Almodovar del Rio - Cuevas del Pino - Casas Tierra, Sol, Luna y Lucero
Cuevas del Pino (14 km from Cordova) is a 30-hectare farm which has specialised in ecological agriculture since 1985. The farm lies in the shelter of Cordova´s Sierra Morena (Dark Mountains), forming part of the Plains of the River Guadalquivir. It is surrounded by irrigated fields, on a site which for long was occupied by Roman villas and Arab orchards.
The farmhouse, which is the home of the owners of the farm, is a traditional building complemented by patios, coach-houses, paddocks, stables, stores, henhouses, and so on. It is surrounded by a hectare of woodland with palm trees, “almezos” (Celta australis), cypresses, walnut and mulberry trees and many species of Mediterranean flowering plants, as well as a zone of fruit trees where chickens peck at the ground under the hooves of the horses.
The swimming pool, in the middle of the garden, enjoys the beauty and freshness of its surroundings, which also include a shady arbour where you can picnic in peace and quiet. The huge caves, which once were Arab stone quarries, give the farm-yard itself a special and very attractive atmosphere. Our aim is to care for this wonderful place and to share with you our love of it, since we regard it as a very special part of Andalusia, indeed of our planet. At Cuevas del Pino we enjoy a tranquil atmosphere, simplicity, the beauty of nature and a sense of restfulness, all of it only 14 km from the heart of Cordova.
We have two cottages, known as The Sun and The Moon, which offer you the opportunity to do absolutely nothing but dream. El Sol is part of the main farmhouse and has sleeping accommodation for 5 - 7 persons; La Luna, with its private garden, can sleep 2 - 4. Both are listed by the Department of Tourism of the Province of Cordova as country cottages, and meet all the relevant requirements.
