Up a step to the hallway that leads to the private patio, you have also the fully fitted kitchen and downstairs shower room perfectly situated for the sofa bed downstairs. Up the original stairs leads you to the master bedroom, which has a fantastic high ceiling. From the bedroom you have a full en-suite bathroom.

We are here to help.
The house has very good accessibility. You can usually park right outside the house, and if you can't there is plenty of parking close by. The Spanish don't mind if you park outside in the road, drop off anyone and or shopping then move on to the nearest parking space!

Parking is close by, and quite often right outside the door, but you are fine to park in the street to unload bags ect....Everyone does :)
The town does have a municiple pool open every summer, as does all the local villages, we quite often go village hopping, going to a different pool and village everyday.

There are lakes at Ardales just over 30mins drive and Zahara 20mins drive, both have excellent facilities.
The Costa del Sol is an hour and half away by car. Our favourite beaches are the Costa de La Luz; around an hour and half away. We love Conil de la Frontera with its huge stretches of white clean sand, perfect for the kids! Next door to Conil you have the beaches of El Palmer, a surf paradise! Further south, Tarifa is the home of the windsurfers (lessons can be arranged!) and is about 2 hours. Other nice beaches are found at Rota and the surrounding area. Picnics can be pre booked.

Had a week stay here and very glad we did. Lovely little town full of funny friendly people. The accommodation couldn't have been much better, with wifi internet, a cosy bed and a patio complete with a lemon tree! I was in hog heaven!

This house is well presented, clean and comfortable (we had everything we needed), well modernised, helpful local contacts - perfect base to get to know the country around. In a typical Spanish street, and with all the amenities you need in walking distance, just lovely! Patio overlooking the hillside (in the middle of town!) is perfect with a drink in the evening.

Olvera is nicely situated for easy access to Jerez, Seville, Corduba, Gibralter, Malaga, and Granada! It's not a tourist town, which we love, the people are warm and friendly and have time for you. Lemon Tree patio suited all of our requirements perfectly, kitchen, microwave, washer, a wonderful patio, TV and video. What more could you ask for?
