Overview

About the property

This rural house was built on the ruins of a typical Andalusian 'cortijo' or farmhouse, jealously respecting its harmony with the environment and at the same time thinking of everything required to ensure you stay is as comfortable as possible. Perhaps for this reason, and for many others that we invite you to discover here, the Tourism, Trade and Sports Council of the government of Andalusia recently recognised the Casa de la Higuera as a Superior Rural House, the top category awarded by the government for rural houses.

Located on a traditional olive estate (9 hectares), from its terraces the Casa de la Higuera offers magnificent views of the Nature Reserve and the village of Zagrilla, from where the accommodation can be reached via an asphalt road. One of house's characteristics that is often mentioned by our clients is its location, located on a hill and on a private estate, which means you can enjoy a peaceful, intimate setting. Just 300 metres from the village, it nonetheless seems to be set apart from the rest of the world.

We offer our guests five double rooms, two with a double bed and three with twin beds. We have three bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, central heating, living room with a fireplace, terrace, garage and garden with a large pool, surrounded by extensive open areas with fabulous views.

We guarantee your stay will be unforgettable. You will discover for yourself that comfort and quality can go hand in hand with tranquillity, calm and peace and quiet.

¡ You will discover that rural tourism is a different way to delight your senses!

Very good country home for exploring Andalusia

  • 4 of 5

This house was ideally located for our day trips to Cordoba and Granada and for exploring the local Andalusian region. It was well represented on the website and fully and well equipped. The owner was hospitable, punctual and, despite language difficulties, thorough with the check in process. The house is very clean and comfortable. The pool and grounds are well maintained and the terrace is a perfect location for a meal or a glass of wine and enjoying the view. One constructive comment - the house would be more comfortable with queen size beds rather than double beds. That said, it did not prevent us from booking it for 5 nights, nor did it adversely affect our stay.

Beautiful house in splendid environment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days in Casa de la Hiquera. Beautiful house, in the middle of an olive orchard and just 20 minutes from Priego de Cordoba (by car). Nice and quiet. The house is well equipped, clean and well-maintained with a big swimming-pool in the yard. And above all, mr. Fernando Rico Osuna is a friendly, caring and hospitable host. We, a family of 6 adults en 4 children, had a wonderful time there.

"Lovely house with all yo...

  • 5 of 5

"Lovely house with all you need for a relaxing holiday. Little village 5 mins walk up the road so handy for a bar and small supermarket but away from it all up on a hill. 2 hours from Seville airport made it ideal for us. Lovely friendly owner. We all really enjoyed our holiday at this rural retreat."

Wunderschöner Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Die Anfahrt war dank unseres Navis sehr kurvenreich und langwierig, doch das Ferienhaus hat uns sofort entschädigt.

Der Ausblick war traumhaft und es fehlte an nichts. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war sehr umkompliziert. Leider sprechen wir kein Spanisch, doch per Mail und ("Online-Übersetzer") hat er sofort auf unsere Anliegen reagiert.

Für Ausflüge im Osten von Andalusien liegt das Haus ideal.

Wir würden hier jederzeit wieder Urlaub machen und nun wissen wir auch, dass es eine ganz normale Anfahrt ohne bemerkenswerte Steigungen und Kurven bis zum Hausgrundstück gibt.

Owner's Response: Muchas gracias por su comentario y estaré encantado de atenderles en otra ocasión. A veces el navegador indica la dirección por carreteras secundarias. Para evitar esto, aconsejamos a nuestros clientes que siempre busquen Priego de Córdoba en vez de Zagrilla. La carretera de Priego de Córdoba a Zagrilla es muy buena. (7km). De nuevo muchas gracias y un cordial saludo.

Casa de la Higuera is located next to Zagrilla, one of the most picturesque and best preserved villages in Priego de Cordoba. Strolling through this village with its white houses you will come across extremely beautiful sights, all of them an example of a special rural architecture.

The town of Priego de Cordoba can be reached from Granada, Seville or Malaga via the A-92 dual carriageway.

Exit at the Loja turn-off, direction Priego.

From Jaén via the A-336 and from Cordoba via the N-432.

Just a few kilometres from Priego de Cordoba is Zagrilla, the village where the house is located.

Do not miss the wonderful views from Casa de la Higuera and walk around the surroundings in the heart of the Nature Reserve. Visit the beautiful historic-artistic heritage of Priego de Córdoba: La Fuente del Rey (the king’s fountain), el Balcón del Adarve, the Arabic Quarter of the city, its Archaeological Museum and Baroque Churches. You will be surprised.

This rural house offers a wide range of possibilities in addition to those of the area itself. At just over 100 kilometres there is the city of Malaga and the beaches of the Costa del Sol. Closer to home is Granada, with its remarkable Alhambra. And very near, less than an hour's car drive away, is the greatest treasure in Andalusian Arabian art, The Mosque at Cordoba.
