Amor in Andalucia

Romance in Andalucia

A seriously ‘Moorish’ Valentines break with a difference. Head to the heart of Andalucia and discover romance, Moorish wonders (Alhambra and Mezquita), Olive Oil tasting, bracing winter's walks in fabulous mountain scenery and warm hospitality at Casa Olea, an exciting new ‘boutique B&B’.
Use Casa Olea as your comfortable base and visit a region which has been attracting romantic travellers, writers and artists since the early 19th century. Visit Granada and Córdoba for the day and explore the Sierras Subbéticas mountains around Casa Olea, a hidden corner of Andalucia, not yet “on the map” for UK travellers. And there are some bargain flights out there still, so it's an afforable escape too.

Casa Olea is an idyllic 6-room ‘luxury B&B’ located in the heart of Andalucia, half-way between Granada and Cordoba and ideal for visits to the Alhambra and Mezquita. A traditional cortijo (farmhouse) but with indulgent touches: under-floor heating, super-king sized beds, Egyptian cotton bedding, luxury bathrooms and a stunning swimming pool.

Explore a hidden corner of inland Spain with self-guide walking and biking routes through olive groves, jagged mountains and peaceful white villages. And Casa Olea is a ‘green getaway’ too, with 100% of its heating and hot water coming from solar panels and a biomass boiler using recycled olive pellets from a local olive cooperative mill.
