For the more extreme sport enthusiasts, the Sierra Nevada ski slopes are 90 minutes away as is the coast for the beach and water sports. There are a number of natural parks and lakes that you can visit too! El Granero at Casa Moya is located in a small Spanish farming village surrounded by olive groves within the Granada, Cordoba and Seville triangle. Although situated in the countryside we are only 10 mins from the civilisation of our local historic architectural town Alcala la Real that offers all the amenities you need during your stay with us. The town is home to La Fortaleza de la Mota a historical fortress dating back to 727 AD that has seen many battles during its history and well worth a visit as well as the many historical buildings that all have a story to tell. After soaking up the cultural atmosphere, there is an abundance of bars and restaurants where you can relax and enjoy Spanish cuisine at its very best or try the 'tapas' available at the many bars in town. El Granero offers our discerning guests a charming 2 bed, 2 bath tastefully furnished self catering cottage where couples, friends or single travellers can enjoy a high level of comfort and a child free environment. We provide everything you may need to make your stay with us enjoyable including Egyptian cotton linens and towels as well as pool towels, guest robes and toiletries. No need to pack a hairdryer, we provide those too. Free wifi, tv and fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to make your stay with us easy and feeling like home. For our guests convenience, we provide a welcome pack on arrival to tide you over until you wish to shop for provisions. 'El Granero' has it own furnished private terrace and covered terraceffor dining and relaxing. Guests can also enjoy the scented garden stocked with aromatic plants and flowers attracting bees and butterflies. The pergola offers a seating area with shade from the sun and beautiful vistas of the local sierras. The saltwater Swimming Pool is available for the sole use of our guests and is open from May to the end of September averaging temperatures of 26C, the perfect place to relax and have relief from the heat of the day. Finished in rustic style using natural stone, it blends seamlessly into the landscape and positioned to take in the fabulous vista whilst floating gently in the sun warmed water. With easy access down steps and a water depth of 1.2 metres, it is a safe and perfect way to cool down from the day's activities or for respite from the summer sun. The pool terrace is furnished with sunbeds and umbrellas and dining set with access to the summer kitchen complete with gas BBQ and running water and also features a shower room for convenience. The countryside has low light pollution which means you can experience the most amazing starry nights and it is a perfect place for stargazers and astronomers. We are wildlife friendly and you may be lucky and get to see and hear cicadas, geckos, lizards, snakes, all sorts of spiders, carpenter bees, mammoth wasps, dragonflies, honey and bumble bees, birds, bats, foxes, wild boar and birds of prey. There is something for everyone at our cottage in the campo.❤️ N.B Although we are embracing and encouraging all to reduce carbon debt, unfortunately we are unable to facilitate the charging of Electric Vehicles at Casa Moya.

Interaction with guestsAs your hosts, we will be available to greet you and give you the tour of El Granero. We will respect your privacy during your stay with us, however we will be on hand to give you any local knowledge if needed. We are dog lovers and have 2 elderly small terriers that we rescued 12 years ago from our neighbour whilst living in France. We are also fostering 2 spanish dogs that were abandoned locally. They are very friendly but will be refrained from interacting with you unless you wish to meet them.

Superb - Superb A Must To Stay
This place was stunning and would highly recommend to anyone. It has all the amenities you would desire, very spacious lounge area with massive settees, TV, music system, dining table with four chairs, really nice kitchen which was equipped to a high level. One bedroom has an en-suite and the other one has not but there is a massive bathroom with bath and shower for your use with lovely toiletries displayed, the whole living accommodation is of a very high quality. Outside there is another dining table with six chairs overlooking the most stunning scenery, further along the patio are some lounging chairs and a small table again overlooking this fantastic scenery. On another level is the pool area with loungers and toilet facilities very well equipped again. I cannot fault this place at all and Bev the owner is the most wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble. Alcala Real is the nearest town which is only less than 10 minutes away. We have been staying in this area for 11 years and this is by far the best place we have stopped in and we will definitely be booking again for next year.

Superb
We had a fantastic time staying here with friends. You will not be disappointed! The accommodation has everything you need and Beverley our host is a lovely lady. The lounge area is a good size with very comfortable settees. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen areas are all well appointed and you will want for nothing. The pool and deck area are super with great views of the rolling olive tree covered hills. The guest information book has a few hidden gems so be sure to read it. For those that cant switch off will find the WiFi, Internet TV, DVD player and CD music system will more than meet you needs.The nearest town Alcala la Real is only 10 minutes away by car and if you do visit be sure to try the bar "Aben Zaide" on Calle Aben Zaide simply the best tapas in the area.

Stunning!
We took both the Granero and Casita as we travelled with three generations. The Granero is the beautifully decorated and furnished and was very clean and exceptionally well equipped. The Casita wa situated by the pool and is excellent additional accomadation and doubles as a bathroom for lazy days round the pool. The pool area itself was perfect with different terraces, plenty of loungers, tables and chairs. There is an outside sink area and gas barbecue which we made plenty of use of. Bev is a superb host, who arranged an excellent welcome pack and had thought of everything we might need. Having stayed in many rented accomodation, this one will take some beating and we hope to come back!

Perfect Place for relaxed holiday
My husband and I we love visiting Spain. Our last stay at The Granero was a very pleasant and relaxed experience. The accommodation is very comfortable, all rooms are specious and beautifully furnished, the pool is lovely and cool. The location is great. Alcala la Real is a very nice small town where Fortaleza de la Mota is a fabulous castle to visit. We will most definitely return for another relaxed holiday.

A holiday in real Spain
We really enjoyed our holiday in this fabulous well equipped house in rural Andalucia. The owner has thought of everything and we particularly appreciated the beautiful towelling robes and the kettle - often missing in Spain. This area of Spain is well worth exploring and is easy to get around as the roads are quiet. Jaen is nearby and well worth seeing plus there are numerous mountain villages to see and experience. This type of holiday is suited to those who want a holiday away from the crowds and the over-development of the 'Costas'. Our hosts looked after us well and were on hand to answer any questions.
