Nature and outdoor activities

Casa Valle de Oro is a hidden treasure on the Spanish countryside in Andalusia. A godforsaken, yet stunningly beautiful hideaway. A haven for birds and a paradise for nature lovers. We are in the heart of Andalucia and it's the perfect base for exploring the area.

It is located in the heart of Andalusia and is very central for trips to Malaga (1 hour), Granada (1 hour) and Cordoba (1.20 hours)

It is located on the 'Ruta del Olivar'. This route is a challenge for many avid cyclists. But is also wonderful to explore by car.
The Camino Mozárabe de Santiago runs through our village, Villanueva de Algaidas. Casa Valle de Oro is the perfect location to have a relaxing break before you start your walk toward Cartaojoal or Benamejí.
