Guestbook comments from the owner
"The accommodation was just what we were looking for. A fantastic spot amidst the olive groves, a short drive away from Iznajar. Definitely a place to 'get away from it all'. The first holiday we've found where we could (and do) quite easily return to. Irene & Peter are fantastic hosts, who do their utmost to please their guests. They are also very happy to give local information and directions. Even though they live next door they are discreet and do not impose on your stay." John and Suzanne.
Thanks to Irene and Peter for the best holiday we can remember. The location is ideal, both tranquil and picturesque but within easy access of the motorway network. Positioned centrally between Seville, Malaga, Cordoba and Granada we were spoiled for places to see. With the added bonus of a beautiful pool waiting at the end of a long hot days sightseeing. Hopefully we will be back next year. Shaun and Heidi

A little gem
Thanks to Irene & Peter this was the perfect spot for our stay in Andulicia. To a clean & tidy property.The addition of a 'Welcome Pack' upon our arrival was a very nice touch. The owners, were always available for advice and a chat. Even assisting to take me to the nearby village to sort out a parking ticket I incurred on a visit to Cordoba. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the area. Will certainly consider booking again in the future. Highly recommended.
a perfect break
Irene and Peter were perfect hosts with a lovely welcome pack on arrival. The location is perfect and made an ideal base for visiting Cordoba and Granada. We can't visit thst area without popping into Nerja and found a lovely beach at Ricon de la Victoria. The pool was perfect to return to for a swim and relaxation after a day's sightseeing. Thoroughly recommend this property.
Had an absolutely lovely holiday, Peter and Irene were very friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay with them again. The place and surroundings were very nice.
spring in spain
We enjoyed visiting this area of Spain in the spring when the weather was mostly sunny but not too hot for sightseeing. The property and pool are lovely, we even managed to swim most days! The owners are extremely helpful and there is a lovely starter pack of food for your arrival. The area is great for visiting Cordoba and the Alhambra/Granada. There is also the National Park and the Flamingo Lake within reach. The owners couldn't do enough to help with information etc and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and were very sorry to leave!
We thank you very much Irene & Peter for all the help we got. the location of the apartment is superb, really peaceful and sharming. this is what we were looking for. interesting places to visit and all nearby. before travelling get a map of the area, this is all you need.
we were really impressed by the welcome pack, everything was there in the fridge, all you need for the next morning.
we would like to comeback in the near future.
Relaxation in beautiful surroundings
the location, apartment and facilities were perfect and accurately described, with a lovely welcome pack on arrival. Peter and Irene were first class very friendly hosts, discreet but always available if needed - we spent several very pleasant evenings in their company.
The swimming pool was spotless and totally private with beautiful views over the olive groves.
Good selection of Spanish restaurants/tapas bars within easy driving distance, La Paloma being one of our favourites for morning coffee and dinner.
For horse riders Cortijo Minas near Salinas is a must!
We know this area quite well as we have friends who we normally stay with nearby but we would certainly recommend this property to friends or relatives.
