Immaculately presented venue from outset

5 of 5
What a fantastic setting, on the side of the montain looking for miles over Oliver plantation. Roger and Elizabeth are top of their game. Everything in the rooms are 'just so' . We were in the 2/3 bed apartment with its own terrace and access to pool area. So quiet!!!!!!!!. Roger and Elizabeth gave us a tour of their adjoining property 'Casa Limon' Vivienda Rural VTAR?MA/01351. You can enter from road level via the front door into the Kitchen Living area, or you can enter at 1st floor level via the side of the property as the property is built into the hillside, then you have separate unimpeeded access to the pool, which is kept immaculate. Roger & Elizabeth are well respected in the locality, this was clear when we walked down to the 'locals' 2 bars a 1/4mile away. Roger knows all the places to have meals and drinks at local prices not tourist prices. His knowledge is second to none.

Very peaceful retreat

4 of 5
The apartment is in good decorative order and can sleep six without resorting to a sofa. 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.
