Gastvrijheid en comfort staan bij mij hoog in het vaandel.

Ellen (gastvrouw)

Onze historische cortijo ademt sfeer, wij zorgen voor de gastvrijheid en het comfort. Uw verblijf moet een ervaring zijn en we streven ernaar om u happy te maken.

Handdoeken en beddengoed van 100% Egyptisch linnen zijn natuurlijk inbegrepen om uw verblijf zeer comfortabel te maken. Elk jaar investeren we in renovatie van de appartementen en de omgeving om up-to-date te zijn voor een moderne levensstandaard. Op verzoek kunt u kiezen voor een ontbijt (tegen extra kosten) in de ochtend, door mij bereid of andere maaltijden en drankjes zijn ook mogelijk.

Ons verhaal

Ons verhaal

Het begon allemaal met de vraag in september 2018: 'Wat gaan we doen na ons werkzame leven in Nederland?' Om een lang verhaal kort te maken: Mijn partner Cees en ik vestigden ons in 2019 in de Axarquia in Andalusië. Ik wilde graag een B&B en Cees zag veel mooie vervallen huizen, die aan renovatie toe waren. Casa Junius, als kleine Holiday Retreat, was geboren en de renovatie van Casa Maria volgde. En we zijn nog niet klaar....

 

Onze olijfolie wordt geperst uit onze eigen biologische olijven. We hebben onze eerste amandelen geoogst. Wijn uit de streek krijgen we van onze Spaanse buren, die hun wijngaard naast ons huis hebben. Ook verkopen wij Zuid-Duitse- en Spaanse wijnen de betere Cava's en excellente Sherry's uit onze kelders. Cosmetica van een klein Spaans bedrijf, op basis van olijfextract en volledig biologisch, wordt door Ellen verkocht en veel gebruikt in de appartementen. En dus voegen we dingen toe, als we denken dat het bijdraagt aan onze levensstijl en het geluk van onze gasten.

Op bovenstaande foto zie je de traditionele manier van oogsten met een stok, het slaan van de takken en een groot net onder de boom. De vruchten vallen in het net. De andere foto toont het vullen van de flessen met olijfolie net na het persen.

FAQ

BELANGRIJK: Alle winkels zijn in Spanje op zondag gesloten. 

De supermarkten zijn in de zomer wel open.

  • What type of car should I rent?
    The location of Casa Junius is in the mountains. The last kilometer of the road is a dirt road and for a small - or low car this part might be a bit challenging We suggest you rent a middle class car with a bit more power and higher up on its wheels. This also might give you some more comfort if you visit the small villages in our neighborhood.

    • January 6 (Saturday, Epiphany of the Lord) • February 28 (Wednesday, Andalusia Day) • March 28 (Maundy Thursday) • March 29 (Good Friday) • May 1 (Wednesday, Labor Day) • August 15 (Thursday, Assumption of the Virgin) • October 12 (Saturday, national holiday of Spain) • November 1 (Friday, All Saints' Day) • December 6 (Friday, Constitution Day) • December 9 (Monday, Immaculate Conception) • December 25 (Wednesday, Christmas) + 2 additional public holidays will be added locally.

    There might be the possibility that you are too late to do some shopping. Even the supermarkets are closed on Sunday, except in the high season. Please make sure you contact us at Casa Junius before you leave home, so we are able to help you with some shopping or prepare breakfast for you next morning.
  • Can we use the airco to heat or cool the apartment?
    Yes, of course. The airco can be used to cool in summer when it is hot outside. Energy prices are very high and therefore we need to ask you an extra fee per day. In wintertime we calculate €10,- per 15kg pellet bag in apartment La Oliva. In apartment El Pomelo we charge €10,- for heating by the airco.
  • Are the supermarkets open on Sunday?
    Unfortunately not, except during the high season! So when you arrive in Spain on Saturday evening, there is no possibility to buy anything on Sunday. All shops are closed, even the supermarkets are closed. So please tell us before you arrive, whether we should buy some groceries for you.
  • Do I need bed linen or towels to bring?
    No, we provide the finest linen and towels, just to make your stay very comfortable.
  • Can I do some shopping before arriving at Casa Junius?
    Of course. We recommend to do your shopping before you arrive at our location. The closest supermarket is about 10 km away. If you are driving the highway A-7, take exit 953. At the bottom of the exit you see a large shopping center Eroski. Inside, there is a good supermarket. From there it takes about 30 min. to drive to Casa Junius. See also in the menu 'Where to go/shopping' on this site.
  • Why should you tell us when you expect to arrive?
    Please tell us at what time you hope to arrive at Casa Junius. This will help us in our planning and to make sure we are there when you arrive. Once you have obtained the key to your apartment and we explained the location, it is entirely up to you when to leave or to come back again.
  • Can I do some shopping before arriving at Casa Maria in Sedella?
    Yes, we recommend to do your shopping before you arrive at our location. Opposite the house in Sedella there is a little shop. The shop has many items, but because of the small size the assortment is limited. The shop is open from 09:00 - 14:00 hours and from 17:30 - 19:00 hours. Closed on Sunday! The closest big supermarket is in Velez and about 17 km away (45 min. by car). If you are driving from the airport on highway A-7, take exit 953 / Velez. At the bottom of the exit you see a large shopping center Eroski. Inside, there is a big supermarket. See also in the menu 'Where to go/shopping' on this site.
  • How do I check in?
    Checking in is easy. We will be there when you arrive and hand over the key and show you your apartment. Please inform us about your estimate time of arrival if possible. Checking in is from 15:00 - 22:00 hours.
  • Should I take my garbage to throw away?
    Yes, please. On the way down from Casa Junius to Velez you will see a garbage dump just after km pole 4 on the right site of the road. There you can leave your glass, plastic and rest garbage. You probably have seen the dump when you passed during your stay. If you don't know, please ask us. We like to keep the region clean.
  • When do I hand over the key?
    During your stay, you probably tell us when you like to leave. We will be there when the time comes, settle any open bills and wish you a well trip home.
  • How long do I drive to the airport?
    Usually it takes about 45 minutes to the airport by car from Casa Junius. The highway is not very busy, but around Malaga it might sometimes drive a little slow during rush hours. These are around 09:00 and 14:00 and 19:00 hours. So plan to add another 15 min. and you are save to be in time at the airport. Driving from Casa Maria in Sedella to the airport takes about 1 hour 15 min.
  • Am I allowed to BBQ during the summer?
    Unfortunately not. During the summer it is not allowed to have any fire outside in the campo due to the possibility of bush fires. It is very dry and hot and 100 year old olive trees could burn in minutes.
  • Can I use the outside kitchen at the pool area at Casa Junius?
    Yes, the outside kitchen is there for our guests. There is a refrigerator to keep your food and/or drinks cool during the day. Please empty it in the evening and put the food / drinks in your own refrigerator in your apartment. There is also a waterheater for coffee or tea. It is not possible to cook there. You share the outside kitchen with the other guests, if applicable.
