Great Villa close to restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Very nice villa in very good condition, pool was great and quite private. Location was excellent with 3 restaurants within easy walking distance.

The only negatives were no AC and couldn't get in to villa until 4pm and had to depart at 8:15am.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your lovely comments, we hope yiu enjoyed your stay. We do apologise for my inconvenience with arrival time of 4pm, unfortunately during the busy summer months our housekeeper needs between 10am and 4pm to prepare the house between guests arriving on the same day as the last guests depart. We can arrange different arrival and departure times when possible to allow for flight times, or can allow guests to drop bags in earlier if requested in advance. Thanks again Kate

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This is going to be really easy. Stunning house, Stunning location. The photos of this house do not do it full justice. The view from the top balcony is absolutely amazing. The facilities are brilliant, with everything you could need. The swimming pool is large and refreshing, with good pool side loungers and ample seating. The caretaker is helpful and friendly. We will not be looking for alternative accommodation next time we visit Spain, can't wait for our next holiday in this property.

Wonderful villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in July and it was just perfect for us as a family with three grown-up daughters. Everyone had their own space and bathroom plus plenty of spaces to share, as this villa is very big. The villa is high quality and spotlessly clean and the pool is lovely - the photos don't do it justice. There are terraces on each floor where you can sit outside in the shade and enjoy the glorious views over the lake. The town itself is at the top of a very steep hill but it's a lovely place to wander around and everyone we met was so friendly. If you don't feel like making that climb, there is a beach restaurant 5 minutes walk from the villa and the food is excellent. Miguel who manages the property was a complete delight and actually drove us around when we arrived to show us where everything was in the town. We loved our time here and it was the perfect place to relax and yet be within easy reach of Seville, Granada and Cordoba. No one I spoke to had heard of Iznajar and perhaps that's a good thing but with its ancient hilltop town and vast lake it's so pretty. I would definitely come back here and recommend this villa.

Wonderful holiday in this fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

I must say our 10 days was wonderful. The manager Miguel met us with a welcome pack of essential food for a few days.

We were amazed at the vast amount of space inside the villa with 4 large bedrooms most of them ensuite. It has a very clean & welcoming atmosphere with many facilities you find at home. There is a fabulous swimming pool & outside seating areas.

We soon found the walk into Iznajar got easier as the time went on. Just take plenty of water.

We loved the different views of the lake. Which we wouldn't have seen if we had hired a car, but a visit to Córdoba is a must.

The surrounding area around the lake was very picturesque so don't forget your camera. Especially for the sunsets over the lake.

There was plenty of shops for everyday food if needed. But the food, tapas and wine in the bars was enough to sustain you for the walk home.

For evening drinks & good food the beach bar was a very pleasant change.

We met Spanish friends of the owners who welcomed us into their home which was lovely.

A holiday to remember & hopefully return.

Good Size Villa in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 7. Four adults and three teenagers. The size of the villa and facilites suited us very well. We all enjoyed the large area by the good sized pool, with its kitchen dining area together with toilet/shower facilities. There is also a washing machine in a utility room on same floor. Spent quite a few great times dining outside and using the BBQ. In the evening after visiting some good restaurants/tapas bars we would end up on the top terrace, drinking, playing cards and some friendly arguing on politics etc!!! The balcony areas provide great sitting out areas for eating and lounging, in the day for getting out of the heat and entertaining at night. The views from all aspects are fantastic. The lake and beach area are so near and we hired canoes and pedaloes at very reasonable prices. Unfortunately the nearest restaurant at the entrance to the beach is closed for refurbishment, but the beach restaurant by the campsite is very good. Kate the owner was prompt in replying to us when we had any queries and the local manager Miguel was very helpful and took the men on a quick tour of Iznajar pointing out places of interest and recommending restaurants which we then all tried out.

You will need hire of a car to visit these in town. Would also recommend visiting Cordoba and Rute. We used a company called Helle Holis who provided a very good car rental service and no hidden extras.

We used a supermarket in Rute called Mercadona (it has an underground car park). Well stocked supermarket and friendly staff. We found a small local bar close to the supermarket called Cerveceria Vickyla. Good service, helpful barman and we enjoyed the food. It is next to a butchers and cake shop. All in all a very relaxing good time.

Fabulous, well equipped villa in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (3 teens plus grandmother) spent a very happy 2 weeks in this beautiful villa. It is extremely well-equipped with everything you might need. There are 4 large and comfortable bedrooms and a very practical kitchen. As the weather was so good, we didn't use the lounge or dining room, although both were excellent. Several balcony areas provided great sitting out areas for eating and lounging, both day and night. The pool was beautifully cool and large enough for both proper swimming and lots of horsing around. The pool has several shaded areas for sitting and relaxing which were very welcome. Everyone enjoyed splashing around, from children to grandmother! The property is extremely clean and well maintained, and the view is second to none. Watching the moon over the lake with a glass of wine was a perfect end to each lovely day. We even witnessed an amazing meteor shower. The owners were very helpful and informative and the local manager, Miguel, is very helpful and great fun. He was able to give us lots of good advice for activities, both local and further afield. There are many great tapas bars in the town and a barbecue around the pool was also a popular option. Miguel and Encarna are available to cook typical regional meals and we thoroughly recommend using this service. Everything was delicious. All in all, this is a great villa and fabulous setting, the location provides lots to see and do and also a great base to venture further into Andalusia.

Accessible via two bridges, Iznajar is is almost entirely surrounded by the Lake of Andalucia, a reservoir stretching out for over 20 miles which offers world-class fishing, water sports and a beautifully clean beach. The water in the lake is warm in the summer months and wonderful for swimming. The area is surrounded by an abundance of interesting and historical villages and towns and Iznajar itself boasts one of the oldest Moorish Castles in the region as well as ancient churches and an historic library.

To eat out in the area you are spoiled for choice as Iznajar and the surrounding area has a wealth of traditional tapas bars and restaurants. The prime location of Villa Almendras directly on the lake of Iznajar, whilst still close to the amenities of the Pueblo Blanco of Iznajar makes it an ideal place to spend your holidays.
