The Andalucia region


Offers holiday makers a chance to experience rural Spanish life, culture, cuisine and architecture. Mariposa Blanca - Casita Arriba is located in the heart of this countryside, approximately 50 minutes drive from Malaga and Granada Airports. This is an ideal location to visit most of the regions of Andalucia : Malaga, Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba, Jaen, Ronda are all within an easy days trip.



Is a picturesque white village situated, within the beautiful rolling hills and evergreen olive groves to the south of the Subbética Natural Park. This friendly village, with its interesting Moorish castle, perches above the Lake of Andalucia, Lake Iznájar offering stunning views of the 32km long reservoir. During fiestas and ferias all the streets of the village are decorated with pretty lights and many fiestas include processions through the streets which are a great experience.

"Sunshine, relaxation, hospitality, sight-seeing, fun."

Fabulous location in authentic olive grove countryside that's a Spanish cliche, yet central to various sights within 2 hours drive. UNESCO world heritage sites: Cordoba, Granada, Baeza, Ubeda, Seville, and other interesting spots are within comfortable day-tripping reach. Hosts Lolli & Maria are exceptionally hospitable, welcoming, good for a chinwag should you solicit it, yet respectful of guests' need for solitude. The accommodation had everything we needed and more! We LOVED the private sun terrace and lounges. And the pool, perfect, and immaculately maintained. Mariposa Blanca is a credit to the owner-operators and a gem in the heart of Andalusia. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much, what a great review.....we really enjoyed your company and hope to see you again. Lolli and Maria x

"Heaven on Earth"

We were so looking forward to our return trip to Mariposa Blanca, and to seeing Lorraine and Maria again. We were desperate for the peace, tranquility and two weeks of blissful chill time and were not disappointed.

Mariposa Blanca is the perfect place to literally get away from it all, and Casita Arriba provides total privacy in a stunning and timeless setting. While very much off the beaten track, it is easy to get there, (just over an hour's drive from Mallaga) and to explore the surrounding area. Although we did pretty much nothing but relax, read and listen to the birdsong, there are plenty of other options for the more energetic holidaymaker.

Lorraine and Maria have made a fabulous job renovating this beautiful old cortijo, with it's numerous terraces and hideaways. The house and gardens are a testament to the care and attention they have invested in doing the best they can for their guests. We couldn't ask for better hosts! They have a mysterious knack of being around when you need them, but completely respecting your privacy.

We adore Mariposa Blanca and will be booking our next trip very soon.

Can't recommend it highly enough!!!

Thank you for the fantastic review, we really look forward to your next visit!
