                                              I would recommend taking a few day's worth of food with you, as once you get there, you wont want to leave in a hurry. The Villa is deep in the Pedroches but next to Cordoba, and the area and the people are incredible. Its definitely out in the wilderness, and that's its appeal. We spent most of our time either lounging around the pool, or eating on the balcony, and took the occasional walk up to the viewpoint. Just a wonderful area, and so different from most holidays i've had. The villa is well equipped, clean, and has everything we needed. Grapes hang over the balcony, the kids befriended the donkeys next door, there's a huge outside BBQ, and the villa is a really good size, what more could you need? It seems that the upstairs has recently been renovated, and I can tell it is a well loved place. Looking forward to coming back, and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to really wants to get away

                                              Beautiful house near Cordoba

                                              5 of 5
                                              My wife and I spent 7 days in this beautiful house. We enjoyed our stay in the house very much. It is very nice, clean and comfortable, with all amenities. The owner Daniel provided us with all that we would need to make our stay cosy in the house. the landscapes around the house are spectacular. It was pity that we were so busy visiting all great towns in Andalusia although every evening we relaxed by the swimming pool. I would highly recommend this property to all who would like to stay near Cordoba. This location is quite convenient as a base for car trips to Cordoba, Seville, etc. A car is necessary.
