This home and the hosts are absolutely wonderful. I stayed for two nights with my husband and dog. The cave keeps the temperature cool inside, even in summer. The area is quiet and relaxing. It was hard to leave the house to explore the city of Cordoba, because all I wanted to do was return to it for relaxation. If you plan on booking this home, please make sure you have a vehicle.
My husband and I spent a wonderful two weeks at Molina. It was very easy to find driving from Seville airport via Cordoba. Manuel, the owner is a fantastic host.
The house is in a quiet and remote setting about 9km outside the village, 3km are along a rough track. If you are looking for a private, quiet setting surrounded by nature but with modern comforts this is the place. From the house you have a panoramic view of uninterrupted olive groves and pine forests covering the surrounding hills. Wild flowers, herbs and fruit trees make up the immediate garden which also has a good sized pool. Half a km below the house is a small farm with a few friendly dogs and horses which roam freely in the neighbouring fields. Birdsong fills the air from dawn to dusk and we enjoyed having a glass of wine in the garden most evenings watching the sun set over the hill.
The house has three bedrooms and a huge open plan lounge/dining kitchen. Three big sofas, so plenty of room to relax and the kitchen is well equipped with pans, crockery, glassware, cutlery, cooking utensils etc. Good sized fridge freezer and gas cooker, washing machine and microwave, no kettle but they do have a cafetiere as you'd expect for the region.
The quality of the furnishings is home standard as opposed to the cheap cast offs which other places we have stayed at tend to use so comfort is not an issue. We found the beds varied from hard to soft so all needs were catered for and the shower room is well equipped with a good power shower and even a bidet if required.
Tiled floors throughout, mosquito nets fitted to all the windows along with wooden shutters, real open fireplace, lots of character, we will certainly be returning.
Villavicosia has an abundance of food shopping options, bars and local produce wholesalers for jambon, wine and olive oil.
Molina is clean, peaceful and secure - perfect for couples, families and friends who prefer quality self catering in real surroundings.
