Updated: 11-Jul-2016
Cottage in Fuente del Conde, Nr. Iznajar, Spain - Peaceful Location, 5 Minute Walk To Bar, Restaurant And Shop

Nestling in one of the olive clad hillsides of Andalucia is Los Tiros, a typical rural Spanish country cottage. It is situated in the outskirts of the small village of Fuente del Conde. The property is approximately 100 years old and was renovated nearly 13 years ago, but retains its traditional rustic charm, including ceiling beams and some original doors. The centre of the village is a 5 minute walk from the cottage and has a small supermarket that will sell all the essentials for your stay in Los Tiros including fresh local bread. The village also has a bar and restaurant which serves food at lunchtimes and in the evenings. There are numerous local restaurants that serve good food which are easily reached by car from the house.

Los Tiros - Put your feet up & relax

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful setting on edge of village. Cottage, terrace & pool excellent. Directions slightly off so took longer to get there, but otherwise excellent. Great base to explore or sit on terrace, put your feet up & relax. Local restaurant/bar very welcoming and host Antonio very nice. Meet & greet by Karen very helpful.

Los Tiros - the real Spain.

  • 5 of 5

Los Tiros is a very sympathetically refurbishment of two old Spanish country cottages, where the original character has been maintained, situated on a hillside, with the courtyard overlooking a fantastic view of distant mountains & pristine olive groves in a little village. And with a very interesting swimming pool. We had an excellent holiday with our two adult sons & their girlfriends; there was ample room for the six of us. The location is very quiet, the night sky totally amazing with the main tourist attractions (Cordoba, Granada, Ronda, Antequera) all easily accessible. But if you want to stay locally, the village bar is welcoming, the local wildlife plentiful & many walks available. All within a couple of hours of easy driving from Malaga airport.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review, Vince, and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Los Tiros. Just a note for other readers - the house is within an hour's drive of Malaga airport rather than two hours. Hope to see you again one year.

Los Tiros, Fuente del Conde, Nr. Iznajar,

  • 4 of 5

A classic chill-out.

We had a fantastic time at Los Tiros with our family & by ourselves. Still can’t get over the location, the scenery, the wildlife, the sky at night, the peace & quiet, the local bar, the friendly locals, the food & above all the very sympathetically restored Los Tiros. We found the photographic record of re-construction very interesting & think that Marion has done an excellent job!

It’s an area of Spain that we have never before visited & will be returning to as we didn’t have enough time to see everything that we wanted to.

Figs for free and superstars!

  • 4 of 5

Los Tiros provided me and my grown up children with the perfect venue to spend time together away from our normal busy lives. The House was charming, beautiful, clean and we were very grateful for the kindness and flexibility of the caretaker, which allowed us to arrive in the middle of a Sunday night and through the thoughtful starter pack of provisions meant we didn't have to rush to the shops on our first morning. The house is pretty well equipped for everything that we might have needed. (We could have done with a little more fridge/freezer space ... but we managed adequately). The very little kitchen door and very steep stairs to 2 of the bedrooms provided a few moments of hilarity at the expense of the tallest and oldest of us respectively (but neither are insurmountable and only add to the wonderful charm of the building). This is the perfect spot for enjoying the immediate area ... days at the beach on Lake Iznajar, visiting local towns and villages (Archidona, Iznajar, Tapia, Balerma) which all provide interesting things to see and do and good places to eat. For the serious sightseers amongst us there were day trips to Sevilla, while others of us made the trip to Granada .. but we we all made the easy ride out to to my favourite: the stunning El Torcal and Antequera.

If you're like us, we recommend Casa de la Artesania on the way to Salinas to find plates like the beautiful ones you see at Los Tiros (the ones that you just want to own!) and our best eating place on this visit was at the Cafe Bar Miguel in Ventorros de Balerma!

Los Tiros provided us with space to be together and little shady spots to slip away in to find moments of peace ... and figs straight off the tree for breakfast! It also provided the highlight of my year ... Following a long and happy meal and a slow walk back from Los Pajaritos; sitting in the dark on the terrace in the early hours of an August morning with my favourite people and a glass of wine; gazing up at the skies and realising we had front row seats and the most amazing view of the Perseids meteor shower!

If you love Andalucia you will love Los Tiros!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your glowing review of Los Tiros, and I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay there. If I didn't already know how wonderful it is, your description of the cottage and the area would certainly make me want to see it for myself! I have to say I'm very envious that you saw a meteor shower. In 12 years of visits I've not seen one yet. Once again, many thanks.

There is a carport and parking for two cars, the courtyard/terrace/patio area has a padlocked gate, and there is also a padlocked gate to the swimming pool to make it safer for children. However, we advise that children are supervised at all times. Pool depth approx. 1.8 – 2.0 metres. Outside: The patio and terrace area is a great place to eat and relax whilst enjoying the view of the surrounding countryside. The tiled patio is shaded by a vine and there is a mosaic tiled table with seating for 6-8 people. There is also a barbeque area for cooking alfresco conveniently situated within this area. Pick and eat the fresh fruit if you want to. There are grapes, figs and nisperos' ( a small orange fruit ). The utility room which houses the washing machine is accessed from this courtyard. Los Tiros benefits from its own private secluded swimming pool, an essential ingredient for those long hot summer days. This is reached by a flight of steps at the entrance to the courtyard and has a terrace with sun loungers and parasol. This area is a sun trap and has sun for the majority of the day. Pool depth approx. 1.8 – 2.0 metres. We advise that children are supervised at all times. Utility Room: Situated off courtyard with washing machine.
