Orchards of these wizened trees can be seen dotted about the hillsides, and local olive oil makes a great souvenir or gift. Enjoy exploring this lovely area from your Jaen province villa.

Places to visit in Jaen Province, Spain

The small but charming town of Baeza is set around the Plaza Mayor and the tree lined paseo with its many pavement cafés. The Marquessa de Jabalquinto is a wonderfully ornate building, now used as a seminary. Close by is the 16th century with wonderful painted screen work and a silver custodia hidden behind a painting of St Peter – it’s worth paying the small fee to see this novelty. There are many other monuments, too many to list, in this charming town which is within easy reach of your self catering villa.

Alcala is located between Cordoba and Granada and has an impressive fortress dating back to 727. It was still in use in the 19th century when it was badly damaged during battles with the French and was abandoned, but the three rows of fortifications and a small museum are interesting to visit. The imposing Abbey Church with its 42 metre high tower and hewn stone vaults is over 500 years old. It shows a progression of architectural styles from Gothic to Renaissance. The paseo, or promenade, is the site of various fairs and markets as well as a place to stroll with the locals.

Beautiful artwork and in a great position to visit the lovely Renaissance towns of Baeza and Udeda. With paronamic views all around. Our host was extremely helpful in organising interesting events and restaurants. I can highly recommend and we will be visiting again. Eileen and David (UK) Ian and Anne (Australia).

The villa is exceptional, the layout practicality and size was fantastic. The Villa owners were very accommodating with good communication and assistance throughout our stay (when needed). The pool was great for cooling off in the hot andulician summer and the surrounding views stunning. The Villa is a bit away from it all, however this is what we were looking for. So there are no beaches nearby and the nearest shops approx a 10 - 15 minute drive (10 - 15k). All in all we had a lovely stay, in what is a lovely accomodating Villa with lovely owners. I thoroughly recommend this villa for anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing yet somewhat secluded vacation.
