Casa Uno

Las Pinedas, Córdoba

Light, airy, new and designed for outdoor living, from the colonnaded patio with pool to the rooftop dining area with BBQ and shady canopy


4 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


Nicholas, the charming English owner and former Classic FM broadcaster, lives in the village and knows the area well. Maribel, the caretaker, lives next door, a big plus: she rustles up a meal when you need one, and her ‘gambas al ajillo’ are delicious! The house is fresh, spacious, airy and new, designed for outdoor living for most of the year. Las Pinedas is a small hill village: mini-market, bar (good tapas) and a bread lady who visits every day. Step in to the kitchen; enormous, well-equipped, inviting and the first room you enter, it opens onto a sitting room with a wood-burner and a colonnaded patio with a pool. The décor is bright and breezy: Moroccan silks and Andalucian plates on the walls, a fountain burbling under the bougainvillea, good books on the shelves and squishy sofas on which to read them. Three double bedrooms lie alongside the pool, the master bedroom is upstairs and the bathrooms are en suite. Upstairs is a roof-top dining area too, with a barbecue, handsome furniture, table tennis and a canopy for shade. La Carlota’s shops and cafés are a ten-minute drive, Cordoba’s treasures are almost as close.

We had a wonderful family holiday at Casa UNO. The lovely pool was a Hugh success with adults, teenager and toddlers. The house was easily large enough to accommodate all of us without feeling cramped. A quiet retreat to come back to after a hectic day in Seville or Cordoba. The village has one bar where we were made to feel welcome whether for a lunch time tapas or a late night coffee.


"Our family had a wonderful holiday at Casa Uno. On arriving with Maribel preparing us a delicious meal, we felt both welcome and relaxed in our own courtyard hide-away. Choosing either days at home around the gorgeous pool or using the travel links to explore the local area, Casa Uno always provided a cool oasis on our return from the summer heat. Nicholas was a considerate owner, helpful and attentive, letting us hide away from the world and re-charging our batteries when we needed the place to ourselves, but accessible enough to supplement our guide books.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Joanna Crowson

  • Prehistoric and Roman Spain: the dolmens of Antequera with visitor centre; Itálica, the Roman regional capital
  • Moorish Spain: Córdoba and its Mezquita; Seville and its Alcazar; Granada and the Alhambra; the ruined city of Medinet Al Zahra
  • Medieval Spain: Ecija - the city of church towers; Carmona - walled hilltop city; Jaen/Ubeda/Baeza - trio of Renaissance cities
  • Family Spain: visit the restored castle at Almodóvar; spend the day in Ciudad de Niños (‘Kid’s City’) and/or Aquasierra water-park, both in Córdoba
  • Natural Spain: lovely gentle walks around the village and along the old railway; Antequera’s El Torcal offers both short and longer walks and, like the Laguna de Fuentepiedra (for flamingoes and other birds) has a good visitor centre; Sierra Morena N.P.
  • Cultural Spain:book a flamenco set in your own home with Maribel and Lolo (members of Maquis de la Duende); visit the peñas (flamenco clubs) in Córdoba; enjoy the local gastronomy at home with food from Maribel’s kitchen, or in one of the local restaurants
