It has a Moorish Castle and other interesting buildings, convents, palaces and churches making holiday rentals in Cabra the ideal base for enjoying this unspoilt area of Andalusia.

Pleasant walks can be enjoyed along the former railway known as the Subbetica Green Pathway or in the nearby natural park. Explore the local parks to see statues of local heroes amidst the flowers and fountains of the Alcantara Romero Park.

A short drive from Malaga airport Casa pino solo was nestled amongst the olive trees near the village of Iznajar . A very pretty part of Spain within easy driving distance to Córdoba and Granada . Nigel and Lisa are great . Nigel keeps the pool and hot tub in tip top condition and is there every morning to empty the bins ,recycling etc . Lisa is only a phone call away and nothing was too much trouble . She ordered food to the villa ( delicious ) and booked restaurants when we needed them . . We were a party of 10 and the villa had plenty of room for us all . The rooms were comfy and clean. The kitchen was well stocked . The kids were kept busy with darts , snooker and table tennis . The pool was a welcome relief from the hot Spanish sun . Thanks for a great holiday .
