Village House in Zuheros, Cordoba - Perfect Base for Exploring Cordoba, Granada, Malaga and Enjoying the Magnificent Local Scenery home swap

Zuheros is one of the most beautiful whitewashed villages in Andalucia, nestling in the folds of the Sierra Subbética and surrounded by 1000-year-old olive groves. Its Moorish castle clings improbably to a rocky outcrop and you can sit in its shade and enjoy a coffee or perhaps a glass of the local fino. The village is an excellent base from which to go walking, climbing, cycling and bird-watching and the fascinating cities of Cordoba, Granada and Malaga are only a short drive away. Casa la Hoya is a comfortable, well-equipped village house, recently refurbished to a very high standard. The Moorish decorative style extends to the beautiful walled garden. From here, you can sit by the fountain and listen to the bells of the goats as they climb the mountain side. As well as shops and a pharmacy, the village has restaurants, bars and two museums. A couple of kilometres away is our very own “Bat Cave”, which contains remarkable prehistoric cave paintings and amazing rock formations.

About the location

We searched the length and breadth of Spain, looking for the perfect place to live. We wanted somewhere stunningly beautiful and historically interesting, with good local amenities and transport links. The first time we saw Zuheros, we fell in love with the village. Although we explored many more places in Spain, we kept coming back to Zuheros - we knew we had found a wonderful place to live. What appealed to us most about the location was the fantastic mountain scenery, beautiful castle, historic village, proximity to a national park, the walks and cycle routes. It is remote and far away from the crowds, yet well connected, close to excellent motorways and within easy distance of an airport. We are also close to the fascinating cities of Cordoba and Granada.
