ABOUT

Situated high in the hills amongst the vivid olive fields, known for its natural beauty with great scenic views and clear waters, above Loja, Ventorros De San Jose and Zagra, in the stunning Andalucian province of Granada, La casita de campo (the cottage) is the perfect 'get-away-from-it-all' , intimate stay, vacation rental for up to 4 people - so it's perfect for a small family or two couples. La casita is the perfect retreat to relax, unwind and enjoy your holiday; to go on terrific walking or cycling treks; visit some of Spain's most amazing tourist sites, or simply chill-out and relax on your own terrace, or by the large pool.
Just 50 minutes from Granada and 90 minutes from Malaga airports, La casita is perfectly positioned for exploring the history, culture and natural beauty that Andalucía has in abundance. The famous world heritage sites of Alhambra Palace and Gardens of Granada,;the Mezquita of Cordoba; and the Cathedrals & Alcazar of Seville are just a short drive away. Within easy travelling distance you will also find the mountain treks of the Sierra Nevada, El Torcal and many of Andalucía’s spectacular National Parks. 

Over the last few years, walking and cycling has also seen a surge of popularity

in the area.  There are few better places than La casita to enjoy the surrounding

hills and to admire the night sky and star gazing and amazing sunrise/sunset views over the olive fields.  

We would be delighted to welcome you to our Andalusian cottage in the sun and to help you make your holiday special.

A car is essential for getting here,

but you will be surprised at how cheap, car-hire is in Andalucia!  

But don't just take our word for it...

"This is just the most amazing place to get away from it all. The views are astonishing and having the use of such a huge pool overlooking the mountains an enormous bonus. It's like a setting from a film! I love that the bedroom and lounge area are separate so cooking and eating are away from sleeping.

I cannot overstate the peacefulness of this environment, it's like food for the soul with not a tourist in sight and I can't wait to stay again. "
DEBORAH L, London, UK - September 2016

I recently stayed here for a week. The views were stunning, and such a lovely peaceful place. I will be going back. The owners were very nice and accommodating, such lovely people, I would recommend. The accommodation was beautiful and I never wanted to leave to come home. Thank you for such a lovely holiday.
PAUL G, London, UK - September 2016

If you're looking for a TRUE get away with no tourists, no noise or light pollution, just peace and tranquility and the most astounding views then this is the place. Beautifully renovated little casita with separate sleeping quarters and the use of an almost Olympic sized pool makes this a true reviving holiday ... and the hosts are so kind and lovely. I didn't want to come home!

TRIP ADVISOR - November, 2016

Wonderful views, genuinely Spanish location where you'd be made at home the minute you get there. Poolside is WOW where I'd go and swim whatever the weather.  You can see for miles, fantastic wildlife, especially bird song
and dark skies for any star watchers.

Fantastic place, and what a view! Everything was fresh and clean. Very quiet stay. Graham and Lynn were a very nice host couple.
NINA & DENNIS, Gothenburg, SWEDEN - August 2017


A truly peaceful & secluded location, yet within easy drive of nearby towns/villages with cafes & bars and stunning scenery. The property had everything we needed and was in good order. Our host and hostess (Graham & Lynn) were very friendly and helpful . We would highly recommend this as a excellent value

for money part of your holiday.
PETE & YVONNE, The Cotswolds, UK - September 2017

We had a wonderful time in the casita. It is a wonderful place to relax, with a splendid view over the valley at sunset and sunrise. Graham and Lynn are very friendly, helpful and punctual hosts. The region has a potential for walking. We did like it so much that we finally didn’t go to Granada or Cordoba as we had in mind. Yes…and we said to ourselves … what a wonderful time.
FABIENNE & JOHAN, Antwerp, Belgium - October 2017

Graham was very welcoming, a very attentive person who took care of every detail to make our stay perfect. He even gave us a bottle of wine and a 'Welcome Package', the whole thing was delicious. The beds were very comfortable, everything is quality. This is the perfect place to relax, the scenery is beautiful with a pool overlooking the mountains. In brief it was paradise; we will come again, we will come back again. No big shops nearby but a small supermarket

well supplied with the necessary.

MARIE-AUDE & JESSICA, Paris, France - October 2017

We are so glad we chose your beautiful property for our stay.

We had a wonderful time here and everything we needed and more for a comfortable stay. Thank you for the extra touches too, very thoughtful and

we will certainly recommend you to others.
SARAH & ANTHONY, Chester, UK - November 2017

Just what the doctor ordered !

Everything was spotlessly clean and arranged ready for arrival, and a welcoming bottle of wine awaiting. Perfectly quiet, private and relaxing, with stunning views over towards the Sierra Nevada, on the approach, and powder-puff stars at night. Free wifi/internet much appreciated, and plenty of local information.

Thanks Graham and Lynn, hopefully see you again!

ROSIE,  London, UK - August  2018

Graham and his wife were very welcoming. The property has stunning views and the house is very pleasant. Malaga is 1h20 away, Granada 1h and Iznajar just about 30 mins. It was very peaceful!  The patio is a lovely place for breakfast and watching the sunset. The WiFi was reliable. Thanks for a great week!!

Paradise!

LAURA, Lokeren, BEL - July, 2019

If you’re looking to completely switch off and relax, this outstanding country cottage is a must. The highlights of our trip was watching the breathtaking sunsets every night and how it evolves into a galaxy of night stars. The pool area is completely private and has stunning views of the olive trees as far as the eye can see. WiFi speed is spot on. Very friendly locals who greeted us every day.

Highly recommend this villa. Thanks Graham & Lynne for being fabulous hosts. You’ve creative a slice of paradise that one can only dream of.

JADE, Belfast, UK - August, 2019

Graham is a great host and the accommodation is excellent. Great location with excellent views. Remote while still close to a village for all your essentials. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Great place to relax. Private pool to yourself with loads of space.

Patrick, Edginton, UK - August, 2019

The casita is a true paradise among the olive trees. Amazing sunset. Graham and his wife (and the dogs) were very welcoming and were able to give us good addresses. No disappointment. I recommend x1000 Thanks again to them!

MARGAUX, Boulogne-Billancourt, FR - September, 2019

We had a wonderful stay at the casita. Relaxing at the pool and gazing at the stars at night were the best moments of our road trip. If you want a break and just want to relax for a day, this is THE place! We highly highly recommend!

MARKUS, Stuttgart, DE - September, 2019

Great spot. Great hosts. This is a great place to while away the time and get amongst the beauty of Spain. Highly recommended.

ROGER, Auckland, NZ - November, 2019

A great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle yet still only a 10 minute drive to towns and shops. Every night was one of the best sunsets I have seen.

I'd stay there again when in the area.

SEE & DO

SEE AND DO

Granada

 

 





Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, just 50 minutes from La Casita, Granada is internationally revered for its lavish Alhambra palace, and enshrined in medieval history as the last stronghold of the Moors in Western Europe, Granada is the darker, more complicated cousin of sunny, exuberant Seville. Humming with a feisty cosmopolitanism and awash with riddles, question marks, contradictions and myths, this is a place to put down your guidebook and let your intuition lead the way – through the narrow ascending streets of the Albayzín, and the tumbling white-walled house gardens of the Realejo quarter. Elegant yet edgy, grandiose but gritty, monumental but marked by pockets of stirring graffiti, 21st-century Granada is anything but straightforward. Instead, this stunning city is an enigmatic place where – if the mood is right – you sense you might find something that you’ve long been looking for. A free tapa, perhaps? An inspirational piece of street art? A flamenco performance that finally unmasks the intangible spirit of duende?

Andalucía Cultural Sites

 

The scent of orange blossom, the thrash of a flamenco guitar, the glimpse of a white village perched spectacularly atop a crag: memories of Andalucía stay with you like collected souvenirs.
Part of the fascination Andalucía holds for people, springs from its peculiar history. For eight centuries the region sat on a porous frontier between two different faiths and ideologies, Christianity and Islam. Left to ferment like a barrel of the bone-dry local sherry, the ongoing cross-fertilisation has thrown up a slew of cultural colossi: ancient mosques transformed into churches; vast palace complexes replete with stucco; a cuisine infused with dashes of North African spices; and a chain of lofty white towns that dominates the arid, craggy landscape, from the tightly knotted lanes of Granada's Albayzín to the hilltop settlements of Cádiz province.
One of Andalucía's most intriguing and mysterious attractions is the notion of duende, the elusive spirit that douses much of Spanish art, especially flamenco. Duende loosely translates as a moment of heightened emotion experienced during an artistic performance, and it can be soulfully evoked in Andalucía if you mingle in the right places. Seek it out in a Lorca play at a municipal theatre, an organ recital in a Gothic church, the hit-or-miss spontaneity of a flamenco peña (club) or the remarkable art renaissance currently gripping Málaga.

Córdoba

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
One building alone is enough to put Córdoba high on any traveller's itinerary: the mesmerising multiarched Mezquita. One of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, it's a symbol of the worldly and sophisticated Islamic culture that flourished here more than a millennium ago when Córdoba was the capital of Islamic Spain, and Western Europe's biggest and most cultured city. Once here, you'll find there's much more to this city: Córdoba is a great place for exploring on foot or by bicycle, staying and eating well in old buildings centred on verdant patios, diving into old wine bars, and feeling millennia of history at every turn. The narrow streets of the old Judería (Jewish quarter) and Muslim quarter stretch out from the great mosque like capillaries, some clogged with tourist bric-a-brac, others delightfully peaceful. The life of the modern city focuses around Plaza de las Tendillas, where you'll find a more boisterous vibe with some excellent bars and restaurants. Andalucía's major river, the Guadalquivir, flows just below the Mezquita, and the riverfront streets are home to a growing band of lively restaurants and bars making the most of the view.
Seville

 

T

 

 

 

 

 


Drenched for most of the year in spirit-enriching sunlight, Seville is a city of feelings as much as sights.

Like all great cities, Seville has historical layers. Roman ruins testify the settlement’s earliest face, memories of the Moorish era flicker like medieval engravings in the Santa Cruz quarter, while the riverside Arenal reeks of lost colonial glory. Yet, one of the most remarkable things about modern Seville is its ability to adapt and etch fresh new brushstrokes onto an ancient canvas. The capital city of Andulucia, Seville is famous for flamenco dancing. Major landmarks include the ornate Alcázar castle complex, built by the Moors, and the 18th century Plaza de la Maestranza bullring. Seville's gothic cathedral is the site of Christopher Columbus's tomb. 

Iznájar

 


Located only 40 minutes from La Casita, Iznájar to all intents and purposes, overlooks an 'inland sea' some thirty kilometres long, and containing an estimated 900 million cubic metres of water.
The cobalt-blue water lake below has given further resonance to Iznájar's unofficial title as the Mirador (viewpoint) del Genil.
In effect, Iznajar now offers the perfect setting for anyone wanting to live in the interior but still retain a 'sea' view' and that includes its fabulous uncrowded beach, where you can swim and participate in all forms of watersports.  
Situated near the southerly border of Córdoba province, it serves as a natural entrance to the Sierra Subbéticas Natural Park. 
The Sierras Subbéticas is a stunningly beautiful, rugged park located in the heart of Andalucia between the three great cities of Cordoba, Granada and Seville. It is home to one of southern Spain's largest breeding colonies of griffon vultures, as well as around 70 other bird species, like booted, Bonelli's and short-toed eagles. It also has a rich variety of wildflowers.

Málaga
 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Málaga is a world apart from the adjoining Costa del Sol: a historic and culturally rich provincial capital which has long lived in the shadow of the iconic Andalucian cities of Granada, Córdoba and Seville. Yet, it has rapidly emerged as the province's city of culture with its so-called 'mile of art' being compared to Madrid, and its dynamism and fine dining to Barcelona.

The tastefully restored historic centre is a delight: its Gothic cathedral is surrounded by narrow pedestrian streets flanked by traditional and modern bars, and shops that range from idiosyncratic and family owned, to urban-chic and contemporary.
