About the property

Villa in Cerro Macho, Montilla, Cordoba, Andalucia - Beautiful Location Within Rural Andalucia

Our villa has been carefully renovated to retain many of its original features, while still catering for the modern life. Situated near our own property, it has 3 bedrooms, lounge/diner, full kitchen and bathroom. Outside there is a pool with a large terrace area and a further 3 terraced areas with BBQ and patio furniture. Set in rural Andalucia, within the Subbetica National park our property offers a glorious rural location, ideal for country lovers, walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. Why not visit la Zamora (25 mins by car) where you can see a large Griffon vulture colony or maybe you fancy visiting the beautiful whitewashed village of Zuheros (half hour by car). Whilst set in the countryside, there is a small supermarket and Bar/Restaurant in the local village, which is only a 20 minute walk (3 min drive) away and 3 larger towns within 20km. Cordoba itself is a 35 min drive away, with Sevilla, Malaga and Granada all within 1 and a half hours drive.

Stunning Villa in a phenomenal location

  • 5 of 5

Stunning Villa in a beautiful location. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful and no matter what you need they are on hand to support you, whilst also giving you full privacy and seclusion. We had a perfect family holiday here, ideal for families but would also be perfect for couples/adults only. The tranquillity and peaceful surroundings are something else, the scenary around the villa is magnificent and if you are hiring a car it's location is ideal to get around Andalusia to see the sights such as Seville, Cordoba, Malaga and the Costa Del Sol. Nearby there are many beautiful villages and towns, I'd advise learning some Spanish or brushing up on it, but well worth visiting them for food and drink and to absorb the culture. Many thanks to the Bradley's (The owners) for their hospitality and we hope to come back one day!!! Highly recommended if you want a relaxing holiday in fantastic surroundings!!!!

Perfect peace and quiet with fantastic facilities

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a perfect location for visits to Cordoba, Seville and Granada and is easily accessible from Malaga. The accommodation has everything you could need and the pool is the idea way to spend the lazy days or for unwinding after a visit. The location is extremely quiet and yet close to good shops and main roads. Gavin and Jermena are really good hosts, always there when you need them but also very hands off.

We had a fantastic two weeks and we would highly recommend this property.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time with the kids, lovely house with a private pool, great location with lots of things to see in the region ; beautiful villages around and not far from Cordoba. To note the owners are really nice people who give you privacy but are always available to help and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

After a very long drive it was great to be met by Gavin and Jermina to begin our planned relaxing holiday. The villa was just what we had anticipated, in a calm location away from the usual touristy centres. Our three girls instantly fell in love with the pool, ( and spent most of the rest of the holiday in it). We were able to explore the local community and beyond but we all enjoyed coming back to the villa at the end of the day. Watching the stars from the sunbeds round the pool is something not to be missed.

Thank you so very much Gavin and Jermina we really hope to see you again.

Quiet rural setting to relax by the pool or take walks over the olive groves and vines.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed two weeks of total relaxation in the hills of Andalusia. The property has all you require for an enjoyable break. The pool is large and exclusive to the single property and offers amazing views of the countryside. As the location is so elevated - 600 metres the Vista is almost 360. Easy access to large towns for shopping and excellent connections to cities like Cordoba make this a complete experience. Our hosts Gavin and family were very helpful and at hand for tips and guidance on local points of interest.

Very peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in good decorative order and can sleep six without resorting to a sofa. The setting, in an olive grove, is idyllic. The surrounding rolling countryside is all olive trees and vines, and the whole vast area is surrounded by distant mountains. It is really quiet. However, November may not be the best time to go. We had seven days of rain, and it was VERY cold, particularly at night. Gavin and Jermena, who live next door, were really kind and helpful, and provided us with an electric heater when we asked for it. If the weather had been better we would have done more travelling. Córdoba is very do-able and worth it. Seville is probably possible in a day, with an early start, likewise Granada. There is a major supermarket 15 minutes drive away, which is worth a trip in itself! If the sun shone, you wouldn't want to leave the apartment.

located just 14 highway miles or 15 driving minutes east of the provincial capital of cordoba, aquasierra features about ten acres of water surface and spacious sunbathing and relaxing areas with postcard perfect panoramic vistas, making it one of the most spectacular water parks throughout the state of andalusia.

since 1990, the water park’s facilities had been constantly improved, so that aquasierra’s guests may enjoy the most modern amenities and have a lasting leisure time experience.

a number of water slides, including the so called pistas blandas, the black hole tube slide, the kamikaze highspeed slide, two wildwater experiences, the speed board slide and the kid adventure area with new attractions (frog and octopus) make sure kids and adults will have plenty of fun.
