Debbie and Jay have spent a year renovating their "forever" home in this very special and little known corner of Andalucia and are proud of every stone and paintstroke.

Whilst Casa Girasol is ideally located for easy day trips to Jaen, Cordoba, Granada and Seville there is much to explore in the local area.

Long lets considered. Three day minimum stay.

Visit a plethora of whitewashed Spanish villages with locals snoozing outside tapas bars, goats walking along the country roads and mules carrying panniers of olives to the local mill.

Almedinilla is 8km away and boasts a Roman villa, museum and Colosseum.

Priego de Cordoba is 12km away with amazing baroque architecture, fountains and Moorish quarter.

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is a walker's and cyclists paradise with amazing light for photography.

Wildlife includes the illusive genet, wild boar, polecats and hares.

Birdlife abounds with Hoopoes, Bee Eaters, Bonelli Eagles, Golden Orioles and Red Kites.

The Romans and the Moors both left their mark on Andalucia; the Alhambra Palace in Granada is perhaps the most well known example. History is ingrained in the towns, villages and countryside of the region - in the architecture, the fountains and the food.

The people are friendly and delighted that you would choose to visit their region.

Summers are long and hot with practically guaranteed sunshine. Spring and Autumn are delightful with long growing seasons. Winter can be very cold in comparison!

Priego de Cordoba has won one of the top awards for the quality of its olive oil and many olive mills welcome visitors to learn about the process and tempt them with ecological hand creams, soaps and other olive oil products in addition to the amazing extra virgin oil of the region.


There are numerous Saint’s Days, National bank holidays and local holidays – essentially, the Andalucians love a fiesta! We are pleased to find out what is going on at the time of your visit but in advance please visit:

Almedinilla itself is incredibly proud of its Roman heritage. Visit the excavations at the roman villa and the museum. The pretty little town even has its own full sized colliseum!

"Very relaxing time, everything you need is to hand"

The casita is very easy to find with Debbies directions, it is quite isolated so you do need a car. There is everything you might need including towels, bedding, basic spices and Debbie and Jay are a… More

"Beautiful peaceful location, warm & wellcoming hosts & a lovely casita."

We had a really lovely few days at casa girasol and although our visit was short, the four days felt so much longer in such a peaceful and relaxing environment. The casita is very clean, comfortable and well equipped and Debbie & Jay make every effort to ensure that you have everything you need, providing loads of information on interesting places to visit and where to get great tapas. We shared a delicious meal with them as we arrived on a Sunday when all the shops were shut and it was a veritable feast. We can't wait to go back to explore more of beautiful Andalusia.

We are the lucky ones - we have such interesting guests who really want to make the most of this very special little corner of Andalucia. Come back soon!

The directions to Casa Girasol were faultless. The casita was lovely and set in the heart of the beautiful Andalucian olive country.
Jay and Debbie are wonderful hosts and Dai the dog is a delight!

This is such a special little corner of Andalucia and it was our pleasure to share it with you. Looking forward to your next visit - and Dai says hi :)

"Cosy retreat with fun and friendly hosts"

Most visitors to Casa Girasol won't need the comfort of a roaring wood burner, cosy red blankets on the bed and warm woollen throw to wrap up in, but these additions to the casita were very welco… More

Thank you so much for the beautiful watercolour you painted of the mass of marigolds outside the casita during your stay - the bright sunny colours have pride of place for future visitors to see. You must come back to see the sunflowers!!!

"A wonderful start to the New Year - in Andalucia"

We celebrated the arrival of 2013 by eating 12 grapes as the twelve chimes rang in the New Year. We were included with our hosts and their friends for a meal in the lovely casa.

Winter weather was bright and sunny most days, with a brilliant blue sky. Mornings were frosty and cold, the evenings sharp with a wonderful clear, starry sky. Our log box was filled daily with wood and kindling for the excellent log burning stove – which very quickly warmed the whole of the casita. However, most lunches were eaten on the patio in the sun.We experienced olive picking the local harvest around the casita, with its amazing views across many olive groves to the Sierras beyond.

Places we visited:
After a one and a half hour drive up to the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada, we sat in the sun, watching skiers and snowboarders enjoying the slopes – from the comfort of an outdoor restaurant. The Fortaleza de la Mota castle at Alcala La Real was well worth an extended visit to see a heritage site undergoing impressive restoration, with its history brought to life by an audio stick and many slide shows in the various towers and main buildings. Another trip was to the long beach of Lake Iznajar. We were also recommended some very good value 'Menus del Dia' at each of the places we visited.

This was a little gem of a place to stay, with everything we needed to be warm and comfortable. There was a very good range of TV programmes; we were even able to select our own region of the UK to see the local news at home. Debbie and Jay could not have been more friendly, helpful and hospitable. We have already booked for another stay this September – to try out their plunge pool, when the sun is somewhat higher in the sky and the nearby fiestas are in full swing!

Wonderful to have you here and share something of this very special little corner of Andalucia with you. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Casa Girasol in the late summer - if you thought that winter was great here, just wait until you experience the real Spanish summer fiestas!

"Total relaxation, a break away from the world."

We stayed at Casa Girasol for 12 days in June/July last year and loved every minute. Flying into Malaga, we collected our hire car and set off on the nice drive to the casita. Upon our arrival a coupl… More

it was our pleasure - so glad you both joined us for the fiesta under the trees with the giant paella for all of the village.
