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.

About this location
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!

"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 :)

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!!!
