An evening sitting on one of his terraces listening to the local wildlife is a wonderful holiday moment. You need a car. But then you can access Granada, Cordoba and multiple villages with history and charm. An entertaining and helpful host, who made us feel welcome and yet provided privacy. I'd certainly return, everything you need is available.

The house was everything we hoped for and more. A peaceful place to stay, in a lovely olive grove, all we could wish for in the house. It was huge!! Beautiful pool we just lazed around when we were in the house, star gazed a night...awesome and the outdoor log burner and snuggly blankets were just perfect. A lot of things to see and do: El Torcal-awesome, Priego de Crdoba really was a hidden gem. The Mesquita in Cordoba was only an hour away . Iznajar village was great and what a bonus having a lake side beach, we will be back , thanks to Julie and Sheelagh for such a wonderful stay
