Spent two gloriously sunny & peaceful weeks in late September at Casa Los Linares. The house was more than large enough for our party of 8, but as we spent most of our time outside, it was the external space that made the stay so enjoyable. The pool was excellent - large & very clean - and the combination of open & covered patio space gave us ample room to spread out & relax.
The location is beautiful, the house being surrounded by hills, with the view of the mountains to the east particularly impressive. As its a 20-25 minutes drive to nearest towns, we dined in every evening. The kitchen, though a touch on the small size is very well equipped, and the local supermarket in Rute was surprisingly well stocked - especially with fresh seafood - so we were able to prepare lots of extremely nice meals to enjoy at the outside dining table. And in the evening after dinner we could also indulge in a spot of star gazing as the lack of light pollution means the night sky is spectacular.
Though the location is very quiet - the only disturbance being the daily passage of goats on their way to & from grazing on the hills - we found plenty of places to visit within an hours drive & also visited Cordoba & Granada (twice!) as they are both less than 90 minutes drive. All in all a great place to stay & chill, or to get out and explore central Andalucia, particularly if you like peace & quiet in a beautiful location.
