Olvera is known as “the King of the Pueblo Blancos” (white towns) and it was declared a Protected Area of Artistic and Historical Importance in 1983. It is a friendly town with a population of around 10,000 and has all the amenities you will need to enjoy your holiday including numerous shops, banks, internet cafe, bars and restaurants. There is also a municipal swimming pool and bar which is open during the summer months. The town is the perfect base for you to explore this beautiful unspoilt area of Andalucia. There are many places to visit within an hour’s drive including Seville, Jerez de la Frontera, Ronda and Antequera. If you don’t mind driving a little further you can visit Cordoba, Cadiz or Malaga. Closer to home, the stunning villages of Grazalema, Zahara de la Sierra, Setenil de las Bodegas and Montejaque are well worth exploring. The countryside is varied and stunning with olive groves, rolling hills, lakes, mountains and woodland. Olvera is also the starting point for the Via Verde de la Sierra (green way) one of the many disused railway tracks across Andalucia which have been renovated for use as walking, cycling and horse-riding routes. Bicycle hire is available from the hotel at the start of the route, or you can enjoy an escorted ride on one of the horses from the riding stables next to the hotel.
Casa Andalus is a newly reformed town house in the old part of the town. The ground floor consists of a cosy lounge with satellite TV and Bang and Olufsen sound system. Downstairs there is also a small bedroom with single bed. There is a good selection of books and CDs for you to use. On the first floor is a bright, well equipped kitchen/dining room which has a small balcony overlooking the street. Also on this floor is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and air conditioning unit together with a brand new en-suite shower room. Both the bedroom and the shower room enjoy stunning views of the hills and olive groves surrounding Olvera. Stairs from the kitchen lead to a large terrace which has amazing countryside views on one side and the Moorish castle and neo-classical church on the other side. On the terrace is a large bathroom with full suite. Casa Andalus is within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants and of course the beautiful church and castle. Despite being in the middle of the town, the house is quiet and peaceful and as both bedrooms are at the back of the house, there is very little traffic noise to disturb your sleep.
