My wife, daughter and I stayed for 1 week while wakeboarding at the Xtreme Gene centre nearby. The town of Almodovar is on the hill rising out of the surrounding plain with the fairytale 'Castillo' on top. Great views from the town, especially from the Castillo. We loved being in a traditional town and meeting the locals. Easy access to the town centre and the bars and restaurants, plenty of great food and not expensive. The house was ideal; modern, clean and cool in the heat of the day. Good to meet the neighbours in the communal pool and practice my Spanish. Cordoba nearby is a must visit.
