It’s very peaceful here, with decorative echoes of Mali and the East. In this secluded, gentle-sided olive valley the Smets run an easy-going ship, along sustainable lines. They may join you for dinner; their vegetables and olives are grown organically, meats and cheeses are from a trusted local butcher, jams and breads are homemade, eggs from the happiest of chickens. Bedrooms open onto the terrace; in Cuarto Djenné two walls are rough-finished to look like the adobe walls of the eponymous Malinese mosque. An African throw covers the bed, bedside lights are made from converted gourds on twisted tree roots. In Rajasthan-influenced Cuarto Jaipur you sleep overseen by a serene goddess, lit by a silk lamp from Hanoi. Cow hides warm floors, Indonesian totems support clothes rails. The Casita has its own kitchen and a small double behind half-height doors off its sitting room (with sofa bed). Modern bathrooms are tiled and spotless. Relax by the sitting room fire, in the Jacuzzi, by the pool (no chemicals) or up on the shaded terrace with long mountain views. The area’s great for bird watching, walking and cycling, too.

Joost and Tatienne gave us (an elderly couple) such a warm welcome. We so enjoyed sharing their lovely home, wonderful breakfasts, delicious evening snacks, cosy wood burning stoves - nothing was too much trouble.

We had a truly amazing holiday at Casa Valle de Oro. We loved the combination of a beautiful, luxurious room, combined with the lovely nature of the terrain, where we switched between quietly reading our book in one of the hammocks or joining other guests for a chat at the swimming pool. Travellers themselves, Joost and Tatienne gave many great recommendations to explore the beautiful area and provided us with delicious and internationally inspired meals. The location is ideal because of its vicinity to both breathtaking nature, and cultural highlights Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla and Malaga.

  • If you like to go on a day trip, don’t hesitate to visit Cordoba with its Mezquita and Royal stables, the Alhambra and Generalife in Granada, and the mundane city of Malaga with its Alcazaba, boulevard, museums, restaurants etc..
  • Visit the nearby medieval city of Antequera with its magical Alcazaba and magnificent views on ‘Lover’s Rock’ It’s beautiful to just stroll around here or visit one of the 23 churches. Archidona: monastery,Plaza Ochavada,restaurant Arxiduna: superb fusion
  • Next to Antequera lies the Natural Park ‘El Torcal’. Step into a world of surrealistic shaped karststone and feel like you were on another planet. Nearby you will find ‘Lobo park’, which is a reserve for wolves where they live in a most natural environment
  • On 15 minutes drive you will find Iznajar with its beautiful reservoir of 15km, where you can swim, rent canoes or go on a sailing trip. Have a coffee and a tapa in the inviting white village of Iznajar and enjoy the lake view
