Casa Olea is THE perfect place to host an art tour in Andalucia. We were a group of Australian & English artists wanting to visit the grand cities (Granada/Cordoba) as well as walk through ancient rural towns surrounded by olive groves and moorish towers. Tim & Claire prepared a well researched itinerary which included 2 wonderful drivers - both named Antonio - who know exactly where the best places are for creating art and enjoying spectacular scenery. We discovered authentic white villages such as Zagrilla and Zuheros and were treated to delicious spanish cuisine and long lazy lunches whilst village life went on around us. On other days Casa Olea prepared picnic lunches and briefed us about the local history and traditions before we set off hiking and drawing high up in the limestone mountains. At the beginning and end of the day Casa Olea has a swimming pool for relaxing or if inclement weather - afternoon tea by the log fire and a superb breakfast and dinner menu. Both Tim and Claire have extensive knowledge of the area as well as years of experience with tour guiding and I hope to return and discover even more about this intoxicating area.
