*** CASA FELIZ *** Outstanding private villa & pool with mesmerising lake views

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Nov-2016
3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with lake views. *****LOW OCCUPANCY DISCOUNTS*****

Casa Feliz offers spacious and supremely comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people in complete and blissful privacy. A beautiful detached three bedroom property with an unbeatable combination of light, space and luxury, this villa, surrounded by a beautiful fragrant Mediterranean garden and just the most sensational lake views, offers guests the very best in home comforts within a peaceful and secluded setting, but still only a couple of minutes drive into Iznajar.

This property has been designed for the ultimate relaxation experience! Situated in a quiet and natural environment, with its own swimming pool overlooking the lake, it truly is breath taking.

Beyond the private pool, the hillsides slope away into the valley and toward the lake, with pastoral olive groves filling the distance in between.

There are many outdoor areas to enjoy, including the swimming pool with a further, separate, fabulous sunbathing terrace with stunning views, a dining veranda with a BBQ area and enclosed rear courtyard.

From the vine covered patio, doors open into the dining area with table and 6 chairs and a fully equipped open plan kitchen. The kitchen area leads into a utility room and the downstairs family shower/bathroom. Also on the ground floor is a spacious lounge with modern wood burner, TV, comfortable sofas and doors to the downstairs double bedroom with doors leading once again onto the vine terrace.

Doors from the living area open onto a secluded courtyard at the rear of the property.

A marble staircase leads you to the first floor where an additional two bedrooms can be found.

The very spacious master bedroom, with balcony overlooking the lake and pool, has a king size bed with luxury ensuite.

The second, twin room, with en-suite WC and hand basin, also has a balcony with lake views.

Casa Feliz offers a perfect setting for family reunions or that much needed time with friends. The property oozes a simple and relaxed style and is the perfect base for exploring the wonderful and varied region of Andalucia.

It is the best of all worlds; you are nestled in a secluded valley amidst the Malaga Mountains and its plentiful olive groves, just over an hour from the moorish historical cities of Granada & Córdoba, under two hours from sensational Sevilla, and just fifty minutes from Malaga and the airport, as well as being just a short drive from the beaches, glitz and glam of the Costa deal Sol.

The owners of Casa Feliz and their staff are dedicated to creating a truly memorable, relaxing and special experience for their guests.

Casa Feliz is registered with The Andalucia Tourist Board Reg No. VTAR/CO/098

Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

Originally from London and Rome, we decided to make Andalucia our home after the need for a more relaxed pace of life, so we packed up everything and decided to buy this little bit of Paradise.

Experienced travellers, of all the great cities and countries we have visited, we knew this corner of Andalucia was perfect for us.

Steve in particular, has traveled the world on his motorbike. And I, Giulia, grew up between London & Rome.

First impression was 'peaceful' and tranquil feeling, very clean and homely

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Casa Feliz and made sure we were home early enough from our outings to sit on the terraces and enjoy the scenery. Excellent location for all major sites such as Cordoba, Granada and we managed to visit Marbella in a day easily. Giulia was very helpful from the booking process and all throughout our stay especially with directions and tips on places to visit and we were greeted with a generous welcome basket filled with goodies. The villa felt like 'home' and not just a holiday rental accommodation. It has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. I had my 82 yr mum with me and she found it easy to move around. I enjoyed spending more time at the villa than all day sightseeing and would love to go back again for a restful and relaxing holiday. If you are looking for a luxury holiday to relax in the sun by the pool as well as sightseeing I strongly recommend Casa Feliz although I would prefer to keep it a secret!

Lovely place with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

Casa Felix is a lovely place to escape the rat race. The description regarding location, layout and facilities is completely accurate and it is a lovely place. The owner is discrete but helpful and we would certainly recommend this property. For us it was a get away but we do think that Iznajar is exceptional.

Wonderful Casa Feliz,

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four (two 'kids' in their early twenties) we spent a week in Casa Feliz in August and really did not want to leave! The villa is just as the pictures show and has been thoughtfully kitted out with everything that you need - the fresh coffee went down a treat with my husband ! It is such a relaxing place to spend time. The pool and terrace areas are fantastic and wow what a view! Giulia and Steve could not have been more helpful and although it gets quite hot in August ( just remember it is the height of summer in Spain!) , they have plenty of fans to help cool the villa down. The villa is perfectly situated for visiting Granada and Córdoba and the surrounding area is beautiful - a real insight into rural Spain and its chilled out tempo of life. We will definitely be back - perhaps in spring/ early summer when the flowers are in bloom - lovely!

Thanks so much Giulia and Steve from Hamish, Trish, Alisdair and Jennifer.

Sad to come home

  • 5 of 5

Great well presented villa with good attention to detail - pool towels, plenty of good quality outdoor furniture, kitchen stocked with herbs & spices etc. Owner Giulia most helpful but not intrusive ensuring we had a superb relaxed holiday in a splendid location with great views across the valley and down to the lake.

Clear instructions provided to locate the villa from the airport.

Iznajar small but good local town with several bars and restaurants. Cordoba and Granada both well worth a visit with easy access to both.

Would happily return to explore more of the local area and would recommend this villa to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alan & Jane, You were great guests and would love to welcome you back soon. We realise how important it is to feel at ease and be able to stay somewhere that feels like a true home from home. This is our aim and for this reason we have equipped the villa with everything we would expect to find should we be on holiday, too.

Fantastic villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Feliz is a beautiful villa in a fantastic location overlooking a lake. It was equipped with all we needed including microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc. Nicely presented and furnished. Pool was perfect for swimming in. Really nothing that could be improved. It was great to be provided with beach towels for use by the pool.

Too hot for much sight seeing - we did get to Córdoba which is well worth seeing for its old town. It is only about an hr away as is Malaga if you want the sea and Granada is a bit nearer. So a great base for sightseeing when not so hot.

The local town Iznajar is very pleasant and has a few super markets. There is a bigger supermarket in Rute about 20mins and Carrefour in Lucena about 40mins away. Several restaurants are listed in the villa guide but we did not get a chance to visit them.

Giulia was incredibly friendly and helpful - she arranged some shopping for us which was a great help as not much is open on Sundays. She also quickly replaced a fan that stopped working.

Would highly recommend the villa to others - we did not miss having the sea and a beach nearby (there is in fact one on the lake but we did not use it). The location is really stunning.

Fantastic Tranquil place with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This villa is lovely was a bit hot at night but otherwise fantastic.Guilia was lovely and nothing was to much trouble ,she even gave us advice on places to visit and eat would happily return . The pool and the views were fantastic we went in the pool every day even at 8.30 at night after a busy day in Granada. The property was lovely and clean and well looked after the road down to the villa is a bit rough but do not let this put you off it is worth it. There is such a lot to do in the area that a week is not long enough. The welcome basket provided is a lovely addition to a wonderful place. Thankyou for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and also glad to hear that you would be more than happy to return and visit us again. The access road to the villa is fully asphalted from the main road all the way to the property and in good condition and we have also had guests with motorbikes. We are lucky enough to not have to drive along a muddy dirt track, which can be very common in Spain. Regarding the heat, we would like to point out that this summer has been particularly hot and extra fans have already been made available to try to compensate that.

Location

From the Owner

After years of searching high and low across the entirety of Andalucia, we stumbled across Iznajar and the amazing turquoise lake waters and were immediately spellbound by the beauty of the area, the excellent accessability to Granada, Córdoba, Malaga and Sevilla and the friendliness of the people. They say Andalucians are the friendliest of Spaniards... But then there are those from Iznajar. The house itself is set in a secluded, but not at all remote position, with jaw dropping views... That is what did it for us: the views and the stillness of the lake's mesmerising waters during the day and the twinkling of the stars at night.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga or Granada at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Iznajar at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : Antequera at 15 Miles Nearest Train : Antequera or Loja at 15 Miles Nearest Motorway : Salinas Junction at 9 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Iznajar at 1 Miles Nearest Ski : Sierra Nevada at 70 Miles Nearest Beach : Lake Iznajar at 3 Miles Car: necessary

The White village of Iznajar is perched on a cliff above the turquoise lake. The moorish castle and ruins and the old library are good starting points to explore the village and stop at the pretty tapas bars dotted around it. The lit up Castle is a must see site.

The local beach, located just across the main bridge, provides a tranquil setting where to relax sunbathing, hire pedalos or enjoy time at the water front restaurants and bar.

Driving around the lake is an adventure in itself... well worth exploring.
