Casa Caballos - The Entire Cortijo
Casa Caballos is an old sympathetically renovated Spanish Finca set in it's own five acres of rolling olive groves and stunning countryside.
The Farmhouse is a stunning three bedroom house centred around a typical Andalucian private courtyard. With a terraces, games room (table tennis) family room with satellite TV and DVD player it is a perfect family choice. Attached to the house are 2 further apartments that provide 6 bedrooms in all.
The beautiful pool is set amongst the stunning scenery of rural Andalucia. The region is famed for it's olive oil, good wine and white villages and retains a country life fast disappearing elsewhere. The local villagers are always friendly and the fiestas give an insight into way of life that harks back to simpler times.
If you are a large group, perhaps celebrating or just getting the whole family together for a holiday we can accommodate up to 16 people. A local Restaurant can also provide catering for large parties (Traditional Paella etc).
The house is situated between Iznájar Lake, Montefrio, Priego de Cordoba and historic Loja (click on "Floor Plan" above to see where we are in the map). Just an hour from Malaga airport, the coast and Granada, we are ideally located to explore the Malaga and Granada provinces. The local area is packed with things to do from hiking, skiing, bird watching to even the more extreme climbing and mountain biking.
We positively encourage families with young children. We have two ourselves and know how difficult finding child friendly accommodation can be. Our pool has a toddler’s section (also perfect for non-swimming adults). We have a purpose built play area and plenty of toys. On request we can provide cots, highchairs and sterilizing equipment. Baby-sitting can also be arranged on a limited basis so that you can enjoy the local nightlife and fiestas.
Shopping and groceries are easily available in either Zagra or Ventorres de San Jose, our neighbouring villages. There are also over ten bars and restaurants to choose from.
The Farmhouse is a luxurious 3 bedroomed family house. With a typical Andalucian layout, the house is centered around the vine covered courtyard, ideal for al fresco dining or just lazing in a hammock.
The three large bedrooms, one with a massive en-suite, one with a stunning terrace with views to the lake, can comfortably accommodate 7 people. (cots and extra beds can also be added).
The vaulted double height lounge and attached games room has satelite TV and a DVD player with many films for all the family.
The kitchen and dining room come fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and a large dining table for the whole family.
We have a wonderful 11 meter pool with a separate safe shallow area for kids and non swimmers. It's above the house for privacy and has its own 100 square meter patio. There's even an area for the kids! There are also 3 and half acres of land to explore. We have an orchard, about 100 olive trees and a small wood further up the hill. There are no boundary fences so you are free to wander.
Casa Caballos is the perfect setting for a rural Spanish Andalucian familly holiday. Whether thats sunning yourself by our pool, with its stunning views across the valley to Iznájar Lake, or enjoying tranquillity of the olive groves and the white villages. We welcome famillies with children and have our own horses and donkeys for trekking
