16th century house in Osuna
from £58 /night help
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Ever thought about a holiday in Andalucía? Wanted to visit the Mezquita in Cordoba, the Alhambra in Granada, the Giralda in Seville? Or take part in the fiesta, watch the processions in Holy Week, eat tapas in an open-air bar with a glass of Rioja, walk or cycle through the countryside, visit ancient ruins, trail the art history of Al-Andalus through the Reconquest? Or just soak up the atmosphere of a small mediaeval Spanish town that sits in the heart of sunny Andalucía.
We have a 16th-century house in the ancient centre of Osuna, a lively town roughly equidistant from Granada, Seville, and Cordoba and convenient for Malaga and Seville airports. Carefully restored and very comfortable and perfect for touring or staying put.

The Andalucia region
There is the whole of Andalucía on your doorstep and Osuna is an excellent base for touring. Seville is about 45 minutes away by car (but there's also a very efficient train) The Giralda and Cathedral are worth it on their own but there is so much in Seville to enjoy (and if you happen to be around, Holy Week and the feria in May are spectacular). Cordoba is another lovely town and you can't miss the Mezquita, the only mosque with a cathedral plonked inside it. And the festival of the patios is held in the first two weeks of May, preceded by the Cruces de Mayo celebration and followed by the main feria. And then there's Ronda, Antequera, Cadiz, the wonderful national parks of Sierra del Norte de Sevilla, the stunning landscape of El Torcal, birdwatching.....
The house is situated in the middle of Osuna, a delightful medieval town which retains its sixteenth century aspect, just walking through its streets is a pleasure. It is dominated by the Colegiata on the hill alongside the Monasterio and the Universidad Viejo but it is full of restaurants and bars as well. Lots of churches to see, if that attracts, plus Roman and pre-Roman ruins (including a necropolis) on the heights above the town by the old tufa quarries. There's a sometimes active bull-ring, markets and lots of friendly Andalucians (you won't hear any English voices except your own).
