Externally CASA UNO is a traditional `white village’ house, four doors away from the Church in the tiny main square of Las Pinedas, set in the hills of the Guadalquivir valley, high enough to catch the evening breezes in the hottest summer, only some 25 minutes drive from central Cordoba .
Internally CASA UNO is built round three sides of a central atrium, enclosing its own 8-metre heated swimming pool, arcaded in the Roman style, deeply secluded in the Moorish manner, with beyond the fourth side of the peristyle a luxuriant border of bougainvillea, citrus trees, jasmine and climbing roses to scent the air, and a gently splashing Moroccan fountain.
CASA UNO lies within the magic triangle of Andalucia’s three great Moorish cities - Cordoba, Seville and Granada. Entrance to Spain's main motorway system is only 3 km away, offering limitless opportunities for cultural, rural,retail,balneo- and gastro-therapy
- and the glorious alternative of a magical house to return to.
An amazing experience. Casa UNO is a beautiful property, very well apportioned and comfortable, in a small village in the heart of Andalucia. We loved everything about the experience. Nicolas is a superbly attentive owner who has not missed a single detail - the house is better than the photos can convey. Maribel is a most accommodating host and an excellent chef. We easily explored Cordoba, Sevilla, Granada, and Ubeda from this centrally-located base, and we enjoyed the intervening down-time by the pool in the quiet country, surrounded by the sounds of birds and fields of sunflowers and olive tree orchards. Why are you still reading? Book your stay in Casa UNO now. We are already planning our next vacation. We loved it.
Just as beautiful as in the photos! Clean and well-equipped, even welcome basket of wine and breakfast items.
We loved the small-village experience much better than the fast pace of Madrid.
The bread lady honks her horn in the plaza with fresh bread and pastries.
The village grocery lady has fresh eggs, tomatoes, oranges, and much more.
The local tavern has great food and our guys enjoyed the experience of watching football (soccer) there.
Nicholas has done a great job preparing his guests to use Casa Uno as a base for trips to Granada, Cordoba, and Seville. Travel guides and maps are provided, we toured Alhambra, Sevilla, and Cordoba.
Maribel is an excellent source of advice as to how far locations are, and is available to prepare meals from her wonderful family recipes (coffe flan with toasted almonds!), and we even hired her to take us to Cordoba shopping.
It was a great experience for three couples on a special trip celebrating anniversaries.
We just returned from a week spent at Casa Uno. We were treated like family by our hostess, Maribel, and took advantage of her delicious meals prepared from her family's recipes. She was gracious enough to go with us to Cordoba so we could tour the city. She and her husband included us in their musical rehearsal, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Nicholas's home is set in a quiet town and has all the amenities one would need while on vacation. We look forward to returning again in the future.
The charming, quiet village of Las Pinedas is a short drive from Córdoba and only a hour from Seville. It provides easy access to many interesting towns, villages, and beautiful countryside in this exotic land of orange trees and olive groves. Casa Uno, a modern and comfortable Roman-style villa, is accurately described in the listing and on the owner's website (be sure to see it), so I need only add my observation that it is as well-equipped as any vacation rental I've experienced, and that it must be a very special place in warm weather, with all the ground floor rooms opening onto the courtyard and pool. We (a couple) hit a bad patch in early November, with a rainy week followed by a sunny but cool one, so the courtyard and pool, although beautiful, were largely wasted on us, but this would be a perfect place for a larger family or group in warmer weather. Special thanks to our friendly, attentive, and most interesting host, Nicholas, and to his management team, the entire family of Maribel and Lolo, who live in the house just behind Casa Uno, and who were, along with Nicholas himself, unobtrusive yet helpful in every conceivable way when needed. I would urge anyone with an interest in visiting this colorful part of Spain to give yourself a special treat: Casa Uno.
WOW!!!!! We were two couples that rented Casa Uno and were very impressed by the location. The pictures do not do justice to this lovely Villa. We were warmly greeted by Maribel and were fortunate to have Nicolas in town who helped us plan our week with some very helpful advice. The property was very clean and the pool was much appreciated after a day of travel. The location was well suited for day trips to Cordoba and Seville and was 30-40 minutes away from wine and olive oil producing areas (Montilla/Baena). We also took advantage of Maribel's culinary talent with a home cooked paella and the local Bar/Restaurant served very good ,affordable, meals. I would not hesitate to go back to Casa Uno and would strongly recommend this location. You will not be disappointed!!!!
We stayed at Casa Uno for Christmas 2011, arriving Christmas Eve. Our family of 5 including 3 young adults, loved the luxurious feel of the property and the space to spread out. Maribel cooked a delicious spanish meal for our arrival, and the owner, Nicholas was very helpful, answered our questions and was eager to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Any minor issues were resolved promptly.
In our rental car we explored the local area with day trips to Cordoba, Seville, Granada, Cadiz and Jerez. There is so much to see and do we had no problems with activity for the week! Thank you to Nicholas for a wonderful stay- we would love to come back in summer and enjoy the pool!
