We felt so at home we didn't want to leave. The house is extremely cosy, well furnished, and bathrooms & bedrooms all clean beautifully decorated. For december It was extremely warm with wood burners, so excellent in winter, but would love to visit in the summer too. Great walking country. We will be going again for sure and recommending this to all of our friends. Wonderful hosts.

The setting, in an olive grove, is idyllic. The surrounding rolling countryside is all olive trees and vines, and the whole vast area is surrounded by distant mountains. It is really quiet. However, November may not be the best time to go. We had seven days of rain, and it was VERY cold, particularly at night. Gavin and Jermena, who live next door, were really kind and helpful, and provided us with an electric heater when we asked for it. If the weather had been better we would have done more travelling. Córdoba is very do-able and worth it. Seville is probably possible in a day, with an early start, likewise Granada. There is a major supermarket 15 minutes drive away, which is worth a trip in itself! If the sun shone, you wouldn't want to leave the apartment.
