The house is in a peaceful river valley surrounded by ancient olive groves and hills, in beautiful countryside midway between the Andalucian meccas of Granada and Cordoba (both are easy day trips). There’s a small village nearby but otherwise Casa Olea is on its own which makes for wonderfully quiet days and stunningly clear nights which are a star gazer’s dream. There are innumerable great walking routes close by as well as access to great outdoor activities, plus historic Priego de Cordoba, famous for its Baroque architecture, and traditional white villages like Zuheros.
Casa Olea is less than two hours from Malaga, Seville or Granada airports, and there’s a high speed train link to Cordoba which is just an hour away.
