Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Pozoblanco - Cottage near Cordoba

Holiday house for rest and relaxation in a family in nature near Cordoba

Our family house is situated in a lovely part of our Sierra Morena, in the place of the ' Era Grande' with characteristic houses or 'cortijos', oil mills and around the charming chapels.

Our house is isolated from other houses and very, very quiet.

Not overlooked, no close neighbors. The pool is covered with a natural hedge.

The house has a large living room with fireplace, kitchen with breakfast bar and all kitchen utensils. It has three charming rooms for sleeping. A large complete bathroom and another with shower and toilet outside, near the barbecue.

There is a large terrace with table and chairs for outdoor dining.

Our swimming pool is fenced in, we have a gazebo and chairs for relaxing and sunbathing.

The whole construction has a traditional architecture of the region, thick walls, wrought iron railings on the windows, ceilings and wooden beams, wooden furniture is good. The house provides a comfortable and homely atmosphere in nature.

Our charming country house combines traditional elements very well. A very interesting to stay in the middle of nature alternative.

To 50 kilometres from Cordoba, our cottage is located in an area known as 'Los Pedroches', Next to our cottage there are numerous ecological olive groves and beautiful pasture land of oaks or ''dehesas', dairy cattle and Iberian pigs witch give selected “ pata negra ham” with Designation of Origin 'Los Pedroches'. Our olives were the first to take the ecological certification throughout Europe and our olive oil is prized worldwide, it is exquisite

The cottage of our family is in the gentle mountains of Sierra Morena, in Cordoba. Our pleasant rustic house combines traditional elements very well. A very interesting alternative to stay in the middle of nature.

You can go hiking and observing nature and especially watching birds in this area virgin and little known of Andalusia. Throughout the year you can see many birds, raptors like owls, golden eagles, vultures, great diversity of waterfowl, cranes, herons, storks and a variety of small birds and many other birds. Children can enjoy our property because we have a few donkeys.

At 50 km is the natural park of Cardeña, the last place where the iberian Linx lives, this is endangered species.

The cottage is a great place to relax or to make visits to our area or to visit historic cities like Cordoba, Seville and Granada. Our region worthwhile for small provincial trips into Cordoba, and many festivals are organized preferably in the spring and summer.

Nearby are charming mountain villages and in our area of Los Pedroches is a small historical heritage (especially the Sotomayor's Castle), fifteenth century, in Belalcázar, about a hundred kilometers from Cordoba, direction Extremadura.

We recommend a visit to our cottage throughout the year, in autumn and winter by the charm of the fireplace and the harvesting of the olives but mainly during the spring, where the field is with many flowers and there are many festivals and Cordoba, especially “Los Patios” and in summer is the time when the pool is open.

The areas that you can visit are:

Andalucia:

Our house is near Cordoba, with the Mosque, Medina Azahara and the Royal Alcazars as major monuments with a Muslim strong flavor. Cordoba was called the city of three cultures: Muslim, Jewish and Christian. The holidays are the most popular Cruces, Los Patios and the Feria de Cordoba, all held in May. The main months in Córdoba. If you view Córdoba in May, you will repeat again.

Major purchases are cordovan crafts, extra virgin olive oil, ceramics and conventual pastry.

We can also visit Sevilla, which has the cathedral and the Giralda The Alcázar facing the district of Santa Cruz. The main festival is the Seville April Fair.

Granada must visit for only one thing, to see the Alhambra, a magnificent Moorish palace (must buy ticket in advance). With its kasbah and its gardens. Also very interesting Albaizin their neighborhoods and the Sacromonte.

Also from our farmhouse you can visit Ubeda and Baeza, both cities are world heritage for being the Andalusian Renaissance jewelry, plus other interesting cities of Malaga and 'Costa del Sol' , Antequera, Ronda, Ecija, etc.

A village to purchase quality ceramic and cheaply is Bailen, within the province of Jaén.

Our region:

Our region is attractive for a myriad of reasons, we have Cardeña Montoro Natural Park is the biggest reserve of Iberian lynx in Spain, our 17 villages are unique in that when the border area Mancha and Extremadura, have characteristics of the three regions.

Our area also offer delicious cuisine, derived from the Iberian pig, with designation of origin for their hams, we also have excellent veal and lamb, and good cheese, and an organic oil extracted from the olive groves of the Sierra.

Our nature is very graceful as they have different habitats, such as the meadow and steppe areas where cranes feed in winter. There are also areas of pure Mediterranean forest, near our farmhouse.

The next mountains and our environment:

We are in Sierra Morena, Sierra de Los Pedroches has 10,000 hectares of organic olive groves shows people here did a great job to plant as many olive trees, these trees today are mostly organic farms, because the low profitability of these trees.

Because of the steep slopes in some areas was not possible to plant anything, so in these areas the Mediterranean forest remains pure. These areas can be visited by the village of Eagle Rock, this trail once united the peoples of Obejo and Pozoblanco. Today is a nice walk where besides a wonderful panoramic view can be seen even from the Civil War trenches.

About Daniel Fernández

Although I studied Engineering, I preferred to stay in my area, the county of Los Pedroches inside Cordoba. My love of nature and the countryside made me I manage this house of our family. After I did the studies as Technician of Marketing and Information Touristic I can better manage our home and help to visitors who come to our house.

I like nature, field, photography, travel and hiking.

Daniel Fernández purchased this villa in 1980

Why Daniel Fernández chose Valle de los Pedroches

Actually I have lived all my life in Cordoba, as well as my family. Thus it has been Cordoba whom I have chosen me.

This charming cottage or 'Cortijo' has been in our family for many decades. Some years ago in this cottage were accommodated farm workers and now they are the nice families who visit us.

My great-grandfather picked the crop of olives up to produce olive oil of high quality, as we have always been producing olive oil for a living, this is the way people in our area have been linked to these territories. Like today for more than a century we are still producing the same quality olive oil that is sold and awarded worldwide due to its great quality.

Our house has made that we do not leave here and we can make our visitors are in our house as if it were their own. Our visitors come as guests but leave us as friends.

Cordoba is a province amazing, especially the area of Sierra Morena. This area is very full with beautiful mountain villages, full of ancient customs and festivals. Sierra Morena is only one step away from Cordoba capital.

Córdoba is surrounded by the charm of its past of peace and quiet, when it was the city of three cultures, Muslim, Christian and Jewish. In the medina of Cordoba, in the neighborhood of 'Juderia' is where you can breathe the atmosphere so peaceful and relaxing. The place where you can feel most strongly that peace is in the Grand Mosque or 'The Great Mosque' where you can walk and walk for a long time without you know of this, just you and the past.

What makes this villa unique

Our house can be visited both travelers with adventurous soul and those who loves traditional tourism.

Our area is unknown in Andalucia and is not overcrowded by tourists

It easily establish relationships with the local population.

Pool exclusively for the house.

You can visit all the historical cities of Andalucia, especially, Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Malaga, plus others such as Ubeda and Baeza, Antequera, Carmona, etc..

Possibility to visit small villages, especially Obejo, of Muslim origin. During the holidays, twice a year, is danced a dance that reminds her past.

Visit of the villages and town of Los Pedroches.

Trés bel endroit, à la campagne au nord de Cordoue. Location vraiement trés bien : accueil, sympathie et disponibilité du propriétaire, région des Pedroches est à connaitre et Cordoue et ses environs sont à connaitre pour le patrimoine historique et la véritable culture andalouse. Au bout de trois fois on ne s'en lasse pas du tout. Trés bien pour une famille qui recherche la tranquilité et le dépaysement. M.C.

séjour à "el cortijo de arriba"

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé quinze jours très agréables dans cette magnifique région d'Andalousie. Le logement bien qu'un peu excentré, s'est révélé très confortable et très reposant. Une vue magnifique aux milieu des oliviers, un calme bien appréciable et des voisins à quatre pattes, les ânes, que nos enfants adoraient carresser et nourrir. Nous avions un peu peur de souffrir de la chaleur mais la maison gardait bien le frais et il y avait un ventilateur dans chaque pièce. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié aussi sa piscine dans ce paysage magnifique cernés par les oliviers. Tous les jours ou presque nous partions en vadrouille et le soir comme on appréciait de revenir au "Corijo" ! Nous avons vu les grandes villes de Cordoba, Granada et Sévilla mais aussi plus localement, dans un rayon d'une trentaine de kms le village de Pedroche avec sa magnifique tour, celui de Obejo où nous avons dégusté un excellent "Salmorejo" et la très belle retenue d'eau de Guadalmellato. Nous avons pu assister à un "encierro" (lacher de vachettes) à El Viso et nous nous sommes baignés dans le lac de Iznajar plus au sud. De très belles vacances, parmi des gens très aimables surtout dans les villages, qui nous ont permis de bien nous ressourcer. Un grand merci aux propriétaires Daniel et Feli toujours prêts à rendre service et très soucieux de notre bien-être dans leur maison.

Expérience à revivre!

Un sejour inoubliable !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été agréablement accueilli par des propriétaires d'une gentillesse et d'une amabilité sans pareil ! Nous avons apprécié la propreté des locaux et de la piscine, toutes les commodités sont présentes. Nous avons aimés les paysages magnifiques, la sérénité, le calme et la proximité avec les beaux ânes blancs et les mules. Nous avons étés touchés par les cadeaux de bienvenus des propriétaires (huile d'olive bio excellente et miel), ils ont étés très discrets (ils passent 2 fois par semaine pour arrosé les plantes et changé les filtres de la piscine et ils vous préviennent par tél avant). Nous gardons avec les 3 enfants des souvenirs mémorables et des photos a couper le souffle.

L'Occitant. Cortijo de la Abuela-Août 2013.

  • 5 of 5

Gite toujours aussi agréable tout comme les propriétaires charmants et disponibles. Le gite est à recommandé pour des familles qui recherchent la tranquillité (plusieurs séjours effectués depuis plus de cinq ans). Tout problème concernant le gite est résolu d'une manière rapide et efficace grâce à la disponibilité des propriétaires. La province de Cordoue est vraiment à connaitre pour son passé historique et culturel ainsi que pour la gentillesse naturelle des andalous. Le gite est situé dans la région des Pedroches; lieu ou est élevé le Pata Negra et lieu ou est produit de l'huile d'olive biologique d'une qualité remarquable.
