After a 250 mile motorcycle ride in 40 plus degree heat this place was a perfect staging post. Wonderful welcome from lovely people. Great food and good rooms with lovely countryside views. Highly recommended for the casual traveller wanting a relaxed stay

We decided to stay at Hotel Rural el Criadero because of the location on our way to Malaga. It's a very good location for an excursion to Cordoba. The English landlady looks for the comfort of her clients. The breakfast was excellent.
