A charming restored farmhouse with indulgent touches. Every window offers views out on to ancient olive groves, medieval Moorish watch towers, the Salado (river) and stunning mountains of the Sierras Subbeticas. Lay by the pool or swing in a hammock. Hire a bike or follow one of our self-guide hikes and explore the local villages. Listen to the frogs, nightingales and secadas in the evening as you star-gaze into crystal clear skies. Base yourselves at Casa Olea and visit the cultural highlights of Granada (the Alhambra Palace) and Cordoba (the Mezquita), both under an hour's drive away.

5 nights in Casa were great. The food was really special. Dinners are home-cooked and the choices discussed each morning are varied. Tim and Claire make the stay. Tim's knowledge of the area and surrounding towns including Granada, Cordoba and Malaga save time and money. Both are always ready to help with touring and special needs, like setting up flamenco performance in the Casa. Rooms and bathrooms are big, beds comfortable, common areas clean, pool area private, balconies perfect for wine and dine. Very good value.

We visited Casa Olea in August with our 3 small boys and it was the most relaxing couple of days of our holiday. We wished we could have stayed longer. The setting is wonderful and so unspoilt and the house is beautiful. Tim and Claire made every effort to ensure our stay was both relaxing and interesting. They told us about the local fiestas, which were great fun, and showed us where to spot wild river turtles a short distance from the hotel, which the boys loved. The pool was perfect for relaxing by and cooling down. The food was fresh and delicious and they catered brilliantly for the children. All in all it was a perfect place to stay.

Tim and Claire have created and run a wonderful hacienda in the countryside. Tim is a genial host and Claire a great cook, ensuring a relaxed and enjoyable short stay away from the extreme heat of Cordoba.

Tim was a wonderful host. He and his family opened Casa Olea a few months ago, and it's an absolutely charming small hotel in the hills of the Subbetica about halfway between Cordoba and Granada. Pool - six bedrooms - exceptionally helpful advice. Only 10 minutes drive to Priego de Cordoba. And a great base for exploring the historic Moorish cities of Cordoba and Granada.
