A very pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

We really appreciated the place since it was quite central for the visits we had planned (Ronda, Cordoba and Seville).

It is a lovely, genuine and very clean house quite easy to heat with the electric heaters and the gas stoves. However we were slightly disturbed by the noise from the street since the windows are only single-glazed windows.

Andrea helped us a lot before we left with directions and was always very quick to answer our questions. Then Norma who lives in Rubio was also very helpful. We really appreciated the welcome basket.

All the shops and restaurants are within easy reach. It is an ideal place to discover Osuna which although it is not in the travelling books is really worth a visit.

The TV channels are only in English. It would have been nice to watch and listen to some Spanish ones so as to enjoy a total immersion in the language.

Thank you very much. We would like to come back but in autumn or spring since we really missed the sun.

Nice house in Spian's countryside

  • 4 of 5

El Rubio is a nice clean house with a nice design. For the hot period of july and august we think an airco in the house could be a good investment. It is bloody hot there. It is really Spain for the Spanish there, tourists are unknown in El Robio. Don't expect one english word from the loocals. Thank god the local swimmingpool was opened from the last week of june.

A good place to stay for visiting Sevilla, Cordoba, Osuna and Granada. But don't expect anything from El Rubio as very good coffee at the Central Plaza 'Minori' and good cheap tapas at the Village Restaurant El Choppo.

Sehr schönes Haus mitten in Andalusien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist ideal als Ausgangspunkt für Städtetouren nach Sevilla, Cordoba und Granada. Es ist sehr gepflegt und sehr schön eingerichtet; sehr schön ist auch der Innenhof mit dem großen Feigenbaum. Wenn Hilfe vor Ort benötigt wird steht ein schottisches Ehepaar als Ansprechpartner zur Verfügung; diese sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Alles bestens!!

A great week in a lovely house within a lovely villag. Everything we needed and very comfortable. Beautifully furnished and very well situated for city sightseeing and the coast - a car is a must.
