Really rural Andalucia, charmingly restored house in olive growing hamlet.
1.5 hours Cordoba and Granada, 45 minutes Jaen city.
Our delightfully restored house is available for an experience of rural Spain.
The hamlet is between the towns of Fuensanta de Martos and Castillo de Locubin in the heart of the olive growing province of Jaen.
Casa El Reguelo has been refurbished and the owners live ten minutes away. The house is comfortable and has lovely views, private patio and small pool. The garden is completely enclosed, and a portable bbq, and patio furniture are of course supplied.
We thoroughly enjoy our house and hope you will too. The downstairs is wheelchair friendly, with a double bedroom with shower room. The whole floor is on one level, also access to the patio through the dining area, and double wooden doors is set free.
There are easy going steps down to the garden.
Upstairs is one single one twin room and shower room, and further stairs lead to a lovely wooden beamed roof terrace.
This is a rural location and a car is a necessity, there are no shops or bars in the hamlet, the nearest ones are in Fuensanta 6km away.
From countryside to cities.
The historical cities of Baeza, Cordoba, Granada, Jaen and Ubeda are all within 1.5 hours drive.
Jaen has a wonderful Vandelvira cathedral, some of the best preserved Arab baths in Spain, and Santa Catalina castle overlooking the city.
We enjoyed our holiday at El Reguelo. The house was comfortable and had everything that we needed. I was a little disappointed that the swimming pool was empty, but I guess it was still spring time, although to us from a cooler climate it seemed warm enough to swim.
There is plenty to see & do in the region, but a car is essential.
It is hard to say if it is value for money as we haven't stayed in any similar places. If you got a last minute booking discount, it would be better value.
