Sadly we only booked a 4 night stay here.... Big mistake ... Huge mistake.

Gaynor & Martin wer'e so veryy envious of you waking up to your fabulous surrounding 24/7.

This was our first visit to Iznajar , cant think why though we missed this one on our travels.

Our Casita had everything we needed... The pool was brilliant. it was a pleasure to have stayed there.

We walked through the Olive grove.

Well done on your gardening skills as well

Hope to return very soon
