Comments from previous guests
Casa Nogal - absolutely loved it - so relaxing and a great place to visit loads of interesting sites. The boys had a ball! ML & family Dorset
Just a note of thanks for letting us stay at Casa Nogal we all had a great holiday and it was so lovely to stay in a home not a property The pool was definitely a huge bonus with the heat and I really enjoyed the tranquillity of my early morning lengths whilst being dive-bombed by the swallows!

The Andalucia region
Rural Andalucia is traditional Spain, with a relaxed friendly way of life totally removed from the Costa del Sol, characterised by rolling hills covered in olive trees and scattered with ancient white-washed towns and villages, rich in local customs
The Andalucian spring is warm and sunny with the olive groves carpeted with wild flowers, whilst summer is hot with endless blue skies. Autumn is pleasantly cooler and a good time to visit cities such as Seville the capital of Andalucia, Cordoba, Granada or Malaga.
Closer to Casa Nogal, the old Roman town of Antequera (30 mins away) is an unspoilt provincial market town with many ancient buildings, a bull-ring and Moorish castle. Closer still is Archidona with its unusual octagonal 18th century plaza.
The historic village of Iznajar (15 mins) sits above Lake Iznajar with its ancient Moorish castle and quaint traditional shops.
Lake Iznajar offers fishing, sailing, and canoes in the summer.
Walking - The immediate area is ideal for walking , mountain biking and bird watching, the Parque Natural El Torcal (40 mins) with its unusual limestone scenery and walking trails is worth a visit, as is Fuente de Piedra (30 mins) a conservation area of wetlands and breeding grounds for flamingos and other wildlife.
Horse-riding- a nearby ( 15 mins) English run riding stable offers lessons, hacking and more ambitious treks.
Golf - there is a new 18 hole course at Antequera (30 mins), whilst 1 hr away there is a great range of courses on the coast.
Skiing - the Sol y Nieve ski-resort in the Sierra Nevada ( nr Granada) is approx 80 mins away, offering extensive ski-runs for all skill levels

"Idyllic villa in olive groves, with excellent facilities."
We have been to this villa two years in a row for 3 weeks each time. It is located in stunning olive groves in the real spanish hills. The pool is beautiful, with swallows swooping down by you as you swim and skimming the water for a drink. The villa is very cool being built half into the hill side. The terrace is lovely too, with dappled shade provided by vines laden down with grapes. The service is excellent. The owners representative leaves essentials (more than just bread and milk, enough for a few meals) for you when you arrive, so no need to panic about provisions if you arrive on a late flight. Also in the event of problems (help to change a gas cylinder), they arrive within an hour or so. Superbly located for tourism: 40mins to Granada, about 1hr to Malaga, and 1hr 30 for Cordoba. We have had super holidays and will return.

"A beautiful relaxing rural retreat"
A great house to stay in, full of rustic charm with an excellent swimming pool, away from the hurly burly, but, within striking distance of the coast, golf courses, Granada and Ronda. Superb local restaurants catering for all budgets and tastes, stunning local scenery and the best golden figs ever tasted.
Off the beaten track but easy to find due to the very precise instructions from the ariport to the drive.
We loved it...

"If you want an idilic situation, away from everything to relax and refresh - this is the place for you"
The property is miles from anywhere but if you are looking to escape from the rat race this is the place. You will need a car - just to get provisions and also to visit some of the local restaurants and attractions in the area. This is a peaceful holiday in wonderful surroundings, definitely not a resort holiday but the property is beautiful, comfortable and has all mod-cons - you can take all those DVDs you've not got around to watching if you want!

Fabulous country location, lots of cultural, physical, dining attractions or chill by the pool and watch the swallows dipping into the water, the hares and rabbits in the evening on the opposite hill. . . relax
