|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
In the heart of Andalucia ideally located for discovering the beautiful cities of Seville, Cordoba & Granada. If peace & tranquility is what you are looking for you need look no further. The village has everything you require from bakers to small supermarket, pharmacy, doctor, dentist, bars & restaurants all within walking distance. The communal pool is beautiful & open during the summer months. Just slightly further afield you will find the lovely ancient towns of Estepa & Osuna with many more shops, bars & restaurants. Just slightly further you can find the larger town of Antequera which has an 18 hole golf course & to the west of there the beautiful lakes of Fuente de Piedra & Emb. de Guadalhorce where you can swim.
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.

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.
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.
"The property provided us with a comfortable and enjoyable stay. It was well equipped and the welcome basket, especially the bottle of wine started our holiday as soon as we arrived."
"Très belle location, très agréable et très bien équipée comme décrit sur le site. La chaleur Andalouse est parfois (très!) élevée dans la région de El Rubio en été mais vous pourrez profiter du plaisir de dormir à la belle étoile dans le magnifique petit jardin..."
Easily accessible from the main motorways between Seville/Cordoba or Seville/Granada with flights to Seville, Granada, Cordoba & Malaga.
Local cuisine can be sampled from several bars & restaurants within the village or in nearby Estepa & Osuna both beautiful old towns full of character & well worth a visit.
