“Serene place to get away”
"If you want beauty and serenity in the heart of the olive groves of Andalusia, this is the place to stay"
Olive Grove Farmhouse - Casa Rural licence no: CR/GR/00254
Olive Grove Farmhouse is an old property set in beautiful inland Andalucia, in the heart of the olive growing region.
This fabulous apartment is on the first floor of an old Andalucian farmhouse. The farmhouse has been tastefully restored keeping old characterists but offering all mod cons needed for a comfortable relaxing holiday. The views from the apartment, and generally around the grounds, are sensational.
The farmhouse has excellent road access, it is very rural but not isolated with local villages and towns close by; Granada is only 45 minutes away.
The property consists of 3 dwellings - the owners accommodation and two rental accommodations: an apartment in the main farmhouse and a self-contained cottage attached to the farmhouse.
This is a totally self-contained first floor apartment with fabulous views across valleys and mountains as far as the Sierra Morena and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges. It is a very spacious and cosy apartment with a log burner for wintry days.
With an extra single bed in the Barn Bedroom and a day bed in the salon, the apartment can accommodate 4 people comfortably. Only an extra 10 euros for each extra person per night.
The double bedroom in the apartment is called The Barn Bedroom; it was converted from the old barn and has a fabulous high vaulted beamed ceiling.. This is a very comfortable large double bedroom with ensuite shower room.
All bed linen and towels are provided.
The salon which includes a kitchen diner is light, airy and spacious. It has fabulous views across hills and mountains as far as the Sierra Morena.
The kitchen/diner area of the salon is well kitted out with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans etc; a gas hob and electric oven.
An efficient log burner in the salon makes the apartment very warm and cosy in the winter.
There are various terraces to sit out on, some offering privacy. All terraces have fabulous views. There are plenty of beautiful walks which will take you as far as you want to go!
In the summer (May to end September) we have a large splash pool.
Although a rural and a quiet area, we are not remote and road access is good with plenty of parking.
We offer a truly rustic Andalucian holiday with all mod cons.
Guest access to the apartment is through a shared entrance hall and up one short flight of stairs. There is also access to an additional small double/twin bedroom with shower-room at an extra charge.
There are local villages with bars and restaurants and small provisions shops. Our main town, Alcala La Real, is 15 kms away and has a host of shops including supermarkets. The town also boasts an old moorish castle as well as a museum and old churches.
The Alhambra at Granada is an hour away. Mezquito at Cordoba under 2 hours away. Coast an hour and a half. Sierra Nevada for skiing just over the hour.
Interaction with Guests
Mostly, Helen the proprietor and your host, is resident in her apartment and will 'meet and greet'. Guests are given complete privacy, however Helen is available for queries or problems. If Helen is away, there are neighbours and a handyman available to sort any queries or maintenance problems.
A handout leaflet is given to guests on arrival with details of the property, grounds and local facilities including information about the local towns and shops etc.
We sometimes have tapas parties and bbq's where everyone is invited including locals.
Trujillos is a small village, or even a hamlet. It nestles in between hills and mountains. The next village offers a great little bar. There are fantastic walks and drives up into the hills.
Three local villages offer provisions shops, bars, restaurants and banks
There is no public transport from the village of Trujillos. It is necessary to have a car at Olive Grove Farmhouse. If you enjoy cycling, we have a gents and a ladies bike to use, free of charge.
