The house

Habitación AzulBalcones de Oleana is an old historic rural villa over one century old, located in San Antonio de Requena, in the Valencia region.

This beautiful building was once a traditional farm house, for farmers, their families and staff.

We have lovingly restored the house to its former glory adding some enhancements to ensure a pleasurable and comfortable stay, whilst maintaining the charming elements of its original construction, such as solid wooden beams, wrought iron work and the numerous balconies and French windows, which make it a bright and cosy stately home. 

In bygone days it was possible to see the banks of the river Magro, formerly known as “Oleana”, from which the name of the house is derived.
