Out and About

The Subbética de Córdoba has been in the center of the vast Moorish empire,  Al-Andalus. Thus there are many remains of Moorish culture in this region.

The whitewashed village of Iznájar has some interesting sights, like a Moorish castle dating from the 8th Century and church from the 16th Century. From Iznájar you have spectacular view over the Embalse de Iznájar. It is great for swimming and water sports are enjoyed on its sandy Valdearenas Beach.

Apart from the beautiful scenery of the Subbética Natural Park and its many delightful villages there are numerous remains of ancient civilizations in the area. You could easily visit the Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita in Córdoba, the bridge over the Tajo in Ronda, or the Alcazar and Giralda in Seville.

El Torcal Natural Park (near Antequera, app. 30 minutes) is definitely worth a visit. On your trips in this area you will see many enchanting ‘Pueblos Blancos’ clinging to spectacular mountain locations.

An easy drive away are the Mediterranean beaches and golf courses.

“We hebben genoten van het huis en de plek, lekker stil. Goeie wifi. Alles prima. We hebben ook geboft met het weer toen we daar zaten, alleen maar zon, heerlijk. Je hebt het eea prima voor ons geregeld, duidelijke en snelle communicatie. Bedankt daarvoor. Andalusië in september/oktober bevalt ons prima dus wie weet tot volgend jaar. Heel veel succes met Vida Rustica. Met vriendelijke groet,”

Beste Anjo en Dick, Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie feedback! Heel fijn dat jullie het er zo lekker gehad hebben. Daar zijn de eigenaren en wij heel erg blij mee. En ook dat ik het op het web mag vermelden, dat is prettig voor andere gasten. Fijn dat dit een perfecte periode voor jullie was. Graag weer tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rustica


“The villa was amazing and set within a fantastic location- seclusion, tranquility and beauty. A perfect get away retreat. The owners had catered for all our needs , making it feel home from home. They ensured we had access to lots of literature regarding walks, activities to do and places of interest which was really helpful. Please pass on our thanks to the owners for making our holiday. Thank you to yourself for making the process of renting the villa so easy. Regards,”

Helen and Matthew Yung, June 2018

Dear Helen and Matthew, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! Great to hear that you have enjoyed the villa and the area to the max. Looking forward to advising you again a next time, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rustica


“Wat hebben wij het heerlijk gehad afgelopen week met heerlijk weer. Een fijn huis, precies goed qua grootte en zo lekker fris wit, het zwembad was warm genoeg om een baantje in te zwemmen, het uitzicht is echt fantastisch …. Een prachtig vakantiehuis en zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. Voor de echte kokkerellers zou een grote oven nog welkom zijn. De combi oven magnetron was wel aan de kleine kant. Dank je wel voor je goede advies en begeleiding.”

Jolanda van der Gun, April 2017

Beste Jolanda, Wat heerlijk dat jullie er zo van genoten hebben! Ik zal je complimenten en ook de tip van de oven aan de eigenaren doorgeven; dat is misschien wel een idee voor de toekomst. Graag tot een volgende keer! Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rústica
