Fantastic traditional Spanish villa with spectacular views
We had a fantastic holiday staying at Jose's villa. The location was idyllic, set within an olive grove with uninterrupted views out over Lake Iznajar. The villa itself was great with plenty of character and space, allowing all 7 adults and 2 small children plenty of space to move about and enjoy all the different aspects that it offered, the beautiful pool, generous
covered patio for family meals and private vistas where you can escape for a little quiet.
Jose was a fantastic host, very accommodating, offering to purchase some essentials as we were arriving late to the villa on a Saturday night and few shops would be open on the Sunday.
Overall, we had a fantastic time relaxing by the pool, soaking up the views, exploring the local town and enjoying large family meals together. We all would thoroughly recommend staying here!
Very nice house in good location
We had a great week in Iznajar, visiting Grenada and Cordoba and also finding time to do some activities with Karma Activo (based in Benameji). Pool was essential as it was very hot, but house was nice and cool and air-con in all the bedrooms was also a big plus.
Jose was very easy to deal with.
Lovely Andalusian (quiet) rural setting and a wonderfully charming genuine Spanish styled house with all the necessary facilities. Fabulous view over the Iznajar lakes surrounded by the olive tree covered mountains.
José was a great host and our kids loved the pool and Moussa, the dog.
Our most warmest and heartfelt recommendations🙂
Stunning location, very convenient and definitely worth return visit and longer stay
Stunning location and views. Nicely central to a wide variety of places to visit from Malaga, to Cordoba, to Granada, to Nerja and much much more. While it is in a remote rural location, very close to all amenities and some good and extremely reasonably priced restaurants. Highly recommended. If we could have, would have stayed much longer as it is so convenient in so many ways. House itself well appointed, lots of space and Jose was very attentive, efficient and professional in all our arrangements. Pool a blessing in the mid-summer heat and great respite after day out travelling around the region.
Peaceful and beautiful location x
Loved the rural location amongst olive groves. The house has grape vines, fig, bay, almond, orange, lemon and pomegranate trees nearby. The house has a rustic feel though is comfortable. The air con in bedrooms is essential. We stayed during July with temps topping at 44 degrees! The house has shade till mid morning too. We particularly loved the outdoor space and the pool. The views are stunning over lake Iznajar! We loved seeing the swallows and bats fly around. Our host Jose was great, very welcoming but unobtrusive. He meet us on arrival as the villa is tricky to find at first. He also made us paella which was delish! Muchas gracias José! There are shops and restaurants nearby in Iznajar ( beware the very narrow and steep roads of driving!) and a big Mercadona supermarket in nearby Rute for all essentials! We had bbqs most nights! Great location to explore the surrounding area. Don't miss Granada and the Alhambra! I'd recommend the local Tinto de Verrano too! It's red wine with lemonade and it's delish! Overall we had a lovely holiday! My only very slight negative issue is the kitchen could do with some extra storage and poss a dishwasher and the showers could be a little better but it's a rustic house and I guess it's part of the charm! Adiós!
Everything we dreamed of
While searching for the perfect rental home in Spain, we were more focused on the house/views than we were on the location. As we planned to stay here as part of a 20 day jaunt through Portugal and Spain, we were really only concerned with finding a home we could relax in and enjoy the pool and views. When we landed on this listing, we immediately submitted a request to book and we were absolutely delighted when it was accepted. It was only after we booked that we began to research the area and we were thrilled to find that it was located right in the heart of one of the best areas of Spain - Cordoba, Grenada, and Malaga are all about an hour's drive from here so we enjoyed a full day in Cordoba, a full day in Grenada (we loved touring the Alhambra), a day exploring Inzajar, a day swimming in the lake's blue waters, and the rest just lounging around the house and enjoying the pool. We found the location to be absolutely top notch, the communication with Jose Carlos to be very pleasant and prompt, and the accomodations to be perfect! For as long as we live, we will never forget watching the delight on our son's face as he played with Musa and Bamboo - the puppies who live in the attached house, waking up to the scent of the olive trees, watching the pidgeons that roost on the rooftop, watching the sunset over the lake as we ate dinner in one of the many outdoors spaces, or just marveling at the brilliant blue of the lake (yes, it really is that beautiful and blue!!). I have never been to a place so still and so quiet - heaven on Earth. Thank you, Jose, for allowing us use of your beautiful property. We will return again and again in our daydreams.
