Casa Rural Ubeda –The Costa Blanca’s Hidden Jewel
Experience an authentic taste of ‘The Real Spain’, far away from the hustle and bustle of the overcrowded coastline and savour the flavour, the atmosphere and the vibrancy of traditional Spanish life whilst relaxing in our beautiful country house
Surrounded by vineyards and bodegas that produce high quality wine, and with great places to visit and explore, the warm and welcoming ambience provides a relaxing and safe place to holiday with family and friends
You can dine outdoors under the setting sun in our magical courtyard or landscaped garden, with soft lighting and scented plants creating a wonderful atmosphere, or feel the Mediterranean breeze gently caress your skin whilst relaxing in the waterfall jacuzzi.
Casa Rural Ubeda offers seven en-suite letting rooms on a Bed and Breakfast or Self-Catering basis. Each of the four double and three triple bedrooms combine design and comfort and can provide accommodation for large or small groups.
For those who wish to venture out, the nearby town of Pinoso, has many shops, bars and restaurants where you can sample the local delicacies and being situated in the most important wine producing region of Southern Spain, there are numerous bodegas to visit and sample the excellent wines of the region.
And of course, no country likes to party quite like the Spanish with music and colour the most important ingredients. The fiestas, large and small, summarises the friendly and passionate character of the Spanish people, reflecting on their diverse and sometimes turbulent past
We were happy with our home and lifestyle in the Lake District, but we worked long hours running our businesses and wanted to change our life/work balance
So we decided to sell our respective businesses, a beauty salon, fast food outlet and rental property business, and began to plan a move abroad, with no real idea of where we wanted to be
We decided to combine our skills and run a Bed and Breakfast and for six weeks travelled the length and breadth of the Mediterranean coast, from Portugal to Valencia, looking for a place to start our new venture. Eventually we chose inland Spain as we wanted to immerse ourselves in the ‘real Spain’, far away from the overcrowded coastline.
Mavis Hanson purchased this house in 2003
In all we viewed 100’s of houses, and eventually fell in love with an unusual place that had been converted from a bakery, a shoe factory and a bodega.
It was typically Spanish and we liked its quirky character. We could see it had potential for development into a Casa Rural and even faulty electrics, power disruptions and an alarming flash flood didn’t dampen our enthusiasm.
From the start we wanted to create something different, where guests could relax and enjoy the property to the full, so we created individual themed rooms, attractive courtyards and a garden full of scents and colour.
We now have a magical place, and a fabulous Spanish lifestyle
What do we love the most about the house? – its unique, quirky and just fab,
Its flexibility means we can accommodate most guest requirements, from Bed and Breakfast to Self Catering, and we can also cater for private dinners and functions and its perfect for parties
We love the garden and being able to be enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and we also love its location, we live amongst the Spanish and have adopted their lifestyle, enjoying each day as it comes
A big thank you to Mavis and Carl for a fantastic 2 week holiday and their great hospitality.
A truly fabulous property with everything you need for the perfect relaxing holiday. Wonderful views and a great pool to wind down and soak up the sun. Great outdoor eating and BBQ area gave us lots of opportunity for alfresco dining and a fridge next to the pool was perfect for afternoon drinks.
The house is really quirky with so much character and plenty of space for all, we traveled as a party of 11 and had more than enough beds/bathrooms to keep the teenagers happy. With more than enough pottery and cooking utensils to feed an army and a great sized cooker.
Would highly recommend to those wanting to sample real Spain. A hire car is a must as lots of villages to go and explore we really liked Monover and El Pinos. Alicante is only 40 minutes away making a day at the beach really accessible. For those with teenage children there is a great water-park on the outskirts of Benidorm which is only an hour away.

La maison: de multitudes espaces à exploiter ,fonctionnelle pour les adultes comme pour les enfants,pool house,patio ,salle de billard,.l'environement de la piscine est exceptionnel et nous fait sentir en vacances dès le premier coup d'œil.
Un petit conseil pour les futurs locataires( l'eau de la piscine est traitée au sel ce qui peut occasionner des irritations et des plaies si les maillots de bain font des frottements ,ceci surtout pour les enfants.

The inland Costa Blanca area boasts the most favourable climate throughout Spain, with long sunny days, low humidity and cooler summer nights. The crowds of tourists drop away as you travel away from the packed beaches, and you find a tranquil, beautiful countryside with traditional villages and hamlets scattered around the region. This area will give you the taste of life in real Spain far away from the very British occupied coastline.
The area has a dramatic and beautiful landscape, with huge orchards of olive, cherry and almond groves and vast vineyards of grapevines providing a magnificent array of colour throughout the year.
It also has a historic past and many castles and cathedrals remain that reflect on the diverse and sometimes turbulent periods of Spains past.
The local town of Pinoso is a vibrant traditionally Spanish town with a wealth of modern amenities such as theatre, health centre, sports centre, shops and a good selection of restaurants and bars.
