Julio and Janice are fantastic hosts and the location is perfect for cycling. Also a great place to get a taste of Andalusian life outside of the big cities yet still an easy drive to Malaga and Granada. The accommodation is beautiful and food is great. The back porch is a perfect place to relax and watch the sunset.

Wonderful quiet place for cycling, running and holidays which I can only recommend. I stayed there in October 2019 for cycling with friends and have only nice memories. Julio and Janice are such lovely hosts. Rooms are separated from the main building and are very beautiful decorated. Next city is Alcala Real 10 min by car.

A lovely stay with Janice & Julio at their guest house. The rooms are very nicely appointed and function very well. Slightly separate to the main house so easy to come and go as we please. Some great mountains nearby to climb or cycle through.

I enjoyed a lovely week cycling by Julio and Janice. The house is lovely and cosy. The house is out of town, nice and quiet, but it is not far, if you like to go to town. The options for cycling are nearly endless and we enjoyed many nice rides from 50 to 120 Kilometers. For good riders there is even the possibility to go as far as Sierra Nevada. I was there in November, the morning where a bit chili, but the sky blue and during the day perfect for some kilometers. Fabian from Switzerland

Had an action packed & memorable time staying with Julio & Janice at Los Olivos Training camp. Each day we were either road cycling, MTB, lake swimming, running or hiking up mountains ! A great, easy to get to location for either a short getaway or for some serious longer training options. Great food, company & A* living & location !

Very friendly owners...and even friendlier dogs! Lovely place. Very authentic and only 10 minutes from Alcala la real. Great cycling and walking. Lots of trails and quiet roads. Excellent public pool in Alcala too.

Julio nos hizo sentirnos como en casa. Un lugar tranquilo, limpio y precioso, ideal para tener como base y pasar unos días disfrutando de la bici y la Sierra Sur de Jaén.
