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.

We couldn't have been more impressed with the service. Our party was greeted by José, who guided us to the villa as we arrived on a late flight. He was also enough to pick up some supplies for our first meal. Throughout the trip he was incredibly helpful and treated us to his famous paella before we left. I would definitely recommend it to any group. If I could give it 6 stars I would. (Sorry for the late review José!) :)
