Description

Peñaflor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

living in the past with the comforts of a modern home

Restored and opened in December 2013, this house is an exact replica of a typical Andalusian village of the early twentieth century.

Is listed as good of cultural interest, as it is built right where the old castle of Peñaflor was retaining it inside, much of the twelfth century Almohad wall that defended it.

It built with salvaged materials, in wooden ceilings and brick, and tile floor and early twentieth centuries. His furniture were chosen from antique and restored to consciousness, to give the house the taste of people, without depriving instead of all the comforts of a modern home, as it is fully heated and also has a superb spa tub where you can relax with light therapy up to six people at once with nine centuries of history which gives the wall surrounding it.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • limited accessibility
  • pets considered
  • smoking allowed

Rustic and homely.

  • 5 of 5

Love this house. It's centrally located near bars and restaurants which are all great value.The accommodation is rustic and characterful and has all you'd need for a holiday (except a hairdryer and maybe a sun-lounger or two).We stayed here last year as well and found it a great base in a lovely village setting - we spent most days exploring the surrounding mountain villages, towns and cities. The locals are really friendly although nobody speaks English so it's great it you have a bit of Spanish to get by with. Will most probably go back again.

A characterful town house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This house at Calle Castille in Penaflor is ideally located for exploring Andalucía; Cordoba and Seville are well connected by road and train and the National Parks of the Sierra Morena are close at hand for hiking. Penaflor has many small family owned and run shops and bars selling the very best produce. The house is uniquely built in to the old castle wall with stunning views of the 18th Century church dome and tower, complete with storks and their nests. The house does need the work of a carpenter/handyman and there is a shortage of some basic needs; a tetera electrica, more cooking pots and pans, and some wine glasses for our Rioja would have been good!

However this did not detract from a terrific three week stay, and mention must be made of the very warm welcome we received from the people of Penaflor.

We would certainly return, Henry and Sue.

Beautiful, clean, comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! Comfortable bed, cozy place, everything was as advertised. The only thing missing was a drying rack for the dishes, other then that was perfect for a couple of two that love to explore off the beaten track. We left our credit card in a small village and the next morning we had several nice people including a policeman telling us where our CC was. Everyone was so nice. Loved it, would definitely stay again.

maison bien située et bien décorée avec un aménagement intérieur très insuffisant

  • 2 of 5

.LOCALISATION : bien située dans un village calme et plaisant. Pratique pour visiter Cordoue, Séville et la région.

.DESCRIPTION de l'annonce : conforme pour ce qui concerne la localisation.

.EQUIPEMENT : très insuffisant pour la vaisselle et l'équipement pour préparer le repas d'une famille souhaitant diner dans cette maison .Le propriétaire semble ne jamais y avoir préparé un repas !!!

Un investissement de 100 à 200€ permettrait au propriétaire de rendre cette maison agréable en toute chose. Deux clés sont nécessaires.

La climatisation fonctionne bien.

Le spa doit pouvoir être couvert quand il n'est pas utilisé. Actuellement il ne l'est pas et il prend la poussière

L'armoire de la chambre du haut est tombée sur le lit. A changer ou à réparer.

.PROPRETE: satisfaisante.

.RAPPORT QUALITE/ PRIX : pas bon compte-tenu des remarques précédentes.

Est ce que je conseillerais cette location à des proches ? Oui si mes remarques ont été prises en compte ,non dans le cas contraire.

Very nice house, with lots of old details.

  • 4 of 5

The house is literally build inside the old castle walls. It breathes history, and is charmingly furnished and decorated. The garden, with the bubble bath, is completely private. Only the storks on the bell tower of the church can see you. The location is perfect for visiting both Sevilla and Cordoba and there are enough other trips to make in the area. The owner doesn't speak English, but can ask other people to translate, do don't let that scare you (allthough a bit of spanish will allways be handy for the introduction at arrival). We certainly had a nice time!

location mal entretenue, équipements vétustes : les photos sont illusions :

  • 1 of 5

Attention les photos ne correspondent pas à la réalité de la location.

Il y a de nombreuses retouches "Photoshop" que je n'avais pas saisi (ex photos du jacuzzi).

Le jacuzzi est vieux et vétuste. Il était vide et sale à notre arrivée.

Nous ne l'avons pas utilisé. Le frigo, le four à micro ondes ne sont pas nets.

Il manque de la vaisselle et elle est parfois dégradée.

De plus et surtout, la porte fenêtre d'une des chambres a un trou dans le bas, elle est pourrie.

Le propriétaire n'est pas présent pour l'état des lieux, ils sont fait par une jeune femme ne parlant pas un mot de Français ni d'Anglais.

Il manque également une centrale de climatisation dans le séjour, les fils électriques sont à nus.

Bref, cette location est très mal entretenue et nous avons été très, très déçus.

Cdt.
