If you want to combine relaxing by the pool and enjoying the Andalucian countryside our family home is the perfect place. We have a view of the mountains and tropical gardens whilst being just 10 minutes drive away from the centre of Cordoba which is home of four world heritage sites:
The Festival of the Patios (15 mins)
The Historic Centre (10 mins)
The Califate City of Medinat Azahara (15 mins)
The Mezquita (15 mins)
Cordoba is a beautiful city, full of history and culture whilst being a perfect size to explore on foot. Cafe and tapas life spills out onto the streets everywhere and families are warmly welcomed and extremely well catered for.
Spring, after the solemn ceremony of the Easter holy week, is full of tropical plants, flamenco music and celebration; Summer is hot and African with the chirping of crickets, geckos and a dip in the pool essential in the day and at night; Autumn is balmy and much like British summertime and Winter is a time to enjoy invigorating walks in the country, exciting Christmas celebrations or the mid-day sun on terraces in street-side cafes.
Our home is spacious and has 4 double bedrooms: 1 ensuite with super king-size bed and bathroom with shower and bath, 1 double room with a double bed, another room with fireplace and sofa bed, 1 child's bedroom with 2 large single beds. There is an additional bathroom with a shower. There is an ample lounge with an open fire that leads out onto the arched patio area. The kitchen is fully equipped. Outside you can sit on the beautiful pine-covered terrace area with bbq and outdoor furniture, relax in the Arabic style porch area, swim in the pool and relax by its own terrace area with BBQ, pick fruit from our orange, lemon and persimmon trees, enjoy the lush tropical garden or shoot some hoops in the basketball net. There is private parking. There are beautiful country walks right on the doorstep and a large hypermarket stocking everything you could need, just 5 mins drive away.
