Rose Lily House in Olvera
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Large 2 bedroom house in unspoilt rural town. Great for those who like self-catering as meals can be enjoyed from the large roof terrace, but also good for those who like to eat out as the town offers plenty of bars and restaurants offering authentic Spanish food and drink.
The house consists of 2 receptions areas, 2 double bedrooms, a large kitchen/dining area, one bathroom upstairs with a separate toilet downstairs and of course the double roof terrace with all round scenic views of the town and surrounding mountains. There is also a paddling pool on the roof for use in the summer.
If coming in the winter, there are portable electric heaters and every room has double glazing.
The house comfortably accommodates 4 people, who have access to all areas.
The Rose Lily House is on a quiet street with virtually no passing traffic. From the roof terrace you can look up the hill and see two of Olvera's most distinctive sights; the Arab castle and the Church of the Incarnation. From the other side of the terrace you can look down the hill onto the houses below as the slope below is very steep at this point. From the third side of the terrace you can see the distant countryside of olive groves, valleys and mountains.

Olvera is a small town on a hilltop with winding ancient streets of shops, bars and restaurants. One of the most distinctive towns in the mountains of Cadiz; it lies between the Sierra de Líjar and the Sierra de las Harinas mountains. Its old town has been declared a Property of Cultural Interest.
Besides the castle and the Incarnation Church, other sites of interest are the Plaza de Andalucía, the convent of Caños Santos, the sanctuary of Los Remedios and the Casa de la Cilla building, the current site of the museum of Olvera.
The town also offers wonderful walks, cycling (along the Via Verde), horse riding, parascending (in Algodonales) and of course the friendly local people, who are always willing to help a stranger.
If not hiring a car, then an airport pickup can be arranged for 85 euros. The driver will be waiting for you at the airport and he will take you to the house. The same price for the return journey.
If staying for more than 1 week, then someone will come to change the bedding and the towels after 7 days.
