3 Bedroom Villa With Private Pool and stunning views in rural Andalucia.



Updated: 01-Dec-2016
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.

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely and well equipped for our holiday. It was a great base to explore the surrounding areas - Cabra and Cordoba are well worth a visit - but it was lovely to come back to the peace and quiet of the cottage to cool off in the pool and enjoy a barbeque whilst watching the sun set. Gavin and his family were very friendly and welcoming, as were the locals at the bar in the village. I would recommend this cottage to others.

Tranquil and relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxed and off the beaten track escape - this is the place for you!

Our family holiday revolved around the pool and terrace with complete privacy.

We've stayed in a number of villas in Spain and the pool here was the best we've seen, an ideal size, with steps and shallow enough for all of us to enjoy.

The house is clean, well equipped and compact.

The location is good, whilst in the countryside, there are plenty of local places to visit and it's close to Cordoba.

The owners are a very friendly English family and keen for you to have a good holiday. Whilst they live close by, they make every effort to give you the space and privacy you want, but are on hand to offer any assistance or advice you might need.

Overall this was an excellent property, one we would definitely go back to and would recommend to others.

A quiet stay at the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Spain where we spent a month (October) in this very lovely Casita. It was clean, cosy and had everything we needed for a great time. The beautiful pool completed the picture!

if you are looking for a comfortable place in a stunning surrounding, this is the perfect place.

A short drive to Cordoba, and many other towns to visit, and a lot of good restaurants and shops nearby.

We fully recomend this house.

Gavin and family, Thanks for everything. I forgot to write in your guestbook, but I hope this message will get to you.

Perhaps we will meet again!

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.
