Lovely Spanish house, beautiful well maintained large pool, great the pool was gated as my son is not an advanced swimmer so had piece of mind. Excellent value and only an hour from Malaga, Granada and Cordoba. Definitely comes highly recommended for a traditional spanish holiday and not on the beach.
A large, traditional farmhouse with good facilities for large family groups. In a quiet rural setting. Good transport links make the Villa accessible.
Not recommended for those who can't manage many stairs.
Nice private pool.
Basic Spanish language skills are helpful.
Casa Ava was a delight, perfect for a family of nine and three generations. Very comfortable, with bedroom air conditioners, art and antique-accented interiors, shaded outdoor dining area, great swimming pool, efficient kitchen, and beautiful views. The nearby town of Rute had good restaurants and shops, and it was in easy driving distance from the cultural sites at Córdoba and Granada. We hope to return someday!
Casa Ava is a beautiful villa situated in its own grounds of olive trees in La Hoz, a short distance from the small town of Rute and the beautiful whitewashed hillside town of Iznajar with its narrow winding streets and stunning views of Iznajar lake.
The villa has a spacious kitchen with a washing machine dining area with a large table and a large family lounge. We spent most of our lazy evenings outside where there are two terraces to choose from with plenty of seating and a big brick BBQ.
There is a large family bedroom at the top of the villa with en suite bathroom including a separate bath and bidet.
As it was just me and my partner we stayed in a large charming room on the first floor with en suite. There are several other bedrooms with twin and bunk beds some with en suite and a further separate bathroom.
The pool is huge 50 sm I believe and was checked and cleaned every other day.
It was a joy to spend lazy days swimming and sunning ourselves in total privacy with the sound of birdsong and swooping swallows all around. Evenings on the terrace by the pool eating wonderful fresh fish from the local supermarket in Rute, drinking Rioja and enjoying the starry night sky was a joy.
It is the perfect location to visit Granada,Córdoba, Malaga, and the stunning Torcal de Antequera nature reserve with its amazing landscape of limestone rock formations. Its secluded location means that car rental is a must but this is very cheap and cost us less than 10 euros a day.
Casa Ava could easily accommodate 12 people making it ideal for a family holiday or a group of friends.
I can't wait to go back!! Thank you Bonnie.
Adorable little town in the mountains. Casa Ava was easy to find with ample parking for guests. Backdrop of olive trees and mountains against the white washed villa is stunning. Villa is well laid out and equip with all you need for a lovely stay. Bedrooms and bathrooms a plenty. Beds were very comfy - slept very well. Eating breakfast under the pergola was so relaxing. The pool was perfect to cool off during the day. Recommend a night time swim under the stars ..... magnificant. Location was perfect for daytripping to Malaga, Grenada, Cordoba and beyond .... Coming home to Casa Ava. Had an amazing time! Can't wait to go back. Highly recommend.
