If you want to combine relaxing by the pool and enjoying the Andalucian countryside our holiday apartment 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 to 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.
The holiday apartment is attached to our family home and sleeps 2 comfortably or a family of 3/4 with small children. It has its own independent entrance from the street, parking, patio area, bathroom, kitchenette and heating/aircon.
Our apartment is small but beautifully formed, very much like a large, well-equipped hotel room. It has a double queen size bed in a bedroom area which is separated from the lounge/kitchen area by a glass screen. The lounge area has a double sofa bed and kitchenette with sink, fridge/freezer, kettle and small hob. Outside you can sit in a private, pretty patio area with furniture, a fountain and lavender bushes. You can access the private pool directly 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.
Cordoba is a great central location for exploring Andalucia and beyond. Other locations of interest nearby include:
Seville (45 mins train, 1 hrs 45 mins car)
Granada and the Sierra Nevada ski resort (1hr 30 mins train, 2 hrs car)
Malaga and the beach (1hr train, 1 hrs 45 mins car)
Madrid (1hr 45 mins train, 4 hrs car)
We also swap our family home. Swapping both homes is ideal for extended family groups.
