We were a group of four mature adults not looking to spend our holiday at the beach but exploring the sights Andulacia has to offer.We weren't disappointed & this accommodation is in an ideal location to access the motorway system. Seville,Cordoba, Granada,Ronda & the coast are all within a one & a half hour drive, which includes some spectacular scenery. The spacious accommodation is clean, fully equipped & any problem is swiftly dealt with. The village of Humilladero has several small supermarkets & bars & the nearby town of Antequera has plenty on offer.We thoroughly enjoyed what this part of Spain has to offer & it was a bonus to return to this delightful house at the end of each day. We strongly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: This being the first year I have let the property on line with Owners Direct I am delighted with the review posted after choosing my home for your holiday. I am very pleased that you all enjoyed staying at the house and were happy with the facilities and loved this area of Andalucia. Discovering this beautiful part of Spain in 2003 we bought the property to provide a home from home for our family and after much renovation and modernisation it has become a much loved haven where we can either relax and enjoy the facilities of the house and village or visit the many famous coastal and historic towns and villages which are easily accessed by the motorway network from the village.
