Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms With Lovely Country Views Only 35 Km From Cordoba

The old stable at this antique farm house is nowadays a magnificent wine cellar where you can pick out your favourite bottle! The lovely garden with a private pool and the authentic, rustic furniture inside guarantee a wonderful vacation for those appreciating the real Andalusia. The property is located at only 800 m from Santaella and just a half hour drive from Cordoba. Air conditioning in the living room and corridor.


Looking out on the Cordoban countryside, you will enjoy its secluded, beautiful garden and private pool (9m x 5m long and 1.4m - 2.2m) with lawn. Relax on the sun loungers and read that book you never finished! A shaded pergola is a very suitable place for the outside meals with a barbecue and an oven provided. The garden is separated from the house by a cul-de-sac road that led to the village in olden times. The property is located at only 800 m from Santaella and 35 km from Cordoba.


The adorable former farm house dates of the year 1902 and has been totally restored to its original state by the owner, keeping the traditional and rustic materials, the beamed ceilings, and using old farm implements to adorn the walls. The living room, the open kitchen, and the bedrooms are all set on one floor. The living room has an open fireplace, an old wooden dining table for 10 people, a sofa, a sofa-bed, radio, and television. The kitchen is equipped with a 4 ringed hob, a microwave, refrigerator/freezer, washing machine, and the necessary furniture. All the bedrooms are decorated in traditional style with Andalusian colours. The master bedroom has a double bed, another has 2 single beds, and a third bedroom has 1 single bed. The bathroom (shower, WC, and basin) is shared by the three bedrooms. The lower floor used to be the stable and serves nowadays as a wine cellar. You can just pick out the bottle of your preference and drink now, pay later. This arched cellar with an open living room and radio-CD player offers the perfect setting to spend long nights drinking and talking with friends or family.

Note: there is air conditioning in the living room and corridor that leads to the bedrooms. The cool air of the corridor should be noticed in the bedrooms.

Beautiful villa and a fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks in Juan's beautiful Andalusian villa and were extremely sorry to leave. If you are looking for authentic Andalusia then look no further from the endless undulating olive groves to the stunning unspoilt local town of Santaella, this really is it.

When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Juan's daughter Marta, who advised us where to go and helped us get settled in. I can't speak highly enough of the house and garden, we spent many an afternoon relaxing by the pool and cooking fresh fish on the bbq. We were even treated to a traditional Arroz Cordobes cooked by Juan himself.

The house is ideally situated for making day trips to Córdoba, Sevilla and Granada. We also recommend a trip to the unpronounceable town of Ecija (also known as the frying pan of Andaluisia), which you can comfortably wander around in an evening.

Aside from the glorious sunshine, fantastic surrounds and beautiful history, what really made this trip for us was Juan's warm hospitality. Nothing is too much, my fiancé is a self-confessed foodie and having having expressed an interest in the local olives over a glass of wine with Juan he offered to take us to see a local olive oil factory, an offer that was too good to refuse. He also educated us on the rich local history of the area, taking us to a lovely local hermitage that we otherwise would have missed.

Really cannot recommend this house highly enough. Our stay at Casa Recreo will forever stay with us as one of the happiest times we spent.

Our warmest thanks to Juan and his family.

Mellissa, Spencer, Tom and Geoff
