Historic Cities: you can visit the great cities of Granada (The Alhambra Palace is a must), Cordoba (Mezquita and cathedral and Seville (cathedral, Giraldi Tower, Plaza de Espana, Real Alcazar). Don't forget Malaga. It has an interesting old centre and the Picasso Museum.

Climate: enjoy long hot summers relaxing by the pol. Spring is sunny with a profusion of wildflowers. the autumn is cooler with fiestas celebrating the olive harvest. It is a perfect time for outdoor pursuits. In winter there are chilly nights and many of sunny days. Explore the cities or go skiing.

Cuisine: Andalucia is famous for tortillas, gazpacho and tapas - small portions of food served with drinks. These are still served free in traditional bars! The area is famous for producing high quality olive oil and pork. You will finds lots of local bars to high class restaurants.

Festivals: this is the land of flamenco, singing and dancing. Fiestas are an integral part of life here and you will find them in all the cities and villages.

Outdoor Pursuits: with wonderful weather and varied scenery the area is perfect for a long list outdoor pursuits. See the local information below for some suggestions.

Fuente Del Conde

Iznajar: Iznajar is a beautiful white hilltop village overlooking the lake. At the top is the Moorish castle. the name comes from the arabic "Hism" castle and "Ashar" happy. It is the centre of the local community and has shops, bars, banks and a local hospital. It has a new indoor sports centre if you want to keep up your gym routine! The lake is the largest in Andalucia. It is 32km long and 6 km wide. It has a small beach with a bar where you can swim, have barbecues, sail and fish.

Antequera: this is a charming town with a historical centre.. It has good shopping including hypermarket. It is next to one of the most important dolmenic centres in Europe. Nearby is El Torcal national park with fantastic limestone structures and walking trails.

Priego de Cordoba: an attractive small town in the Sierra Subetica national park. There are beautiful baroque churches.

El Chorro gorge: lakes, beach and waterspouts

Ronda and Alhama de Granada: both have famous gorges. Ronda has a famous bridge. there are good walks around Alhama.

Outdoor Activities:

Golf is 30 minutes away in Antequera. This is a beautiful course with wonderful views and all the facilities you would expect. It was designed by Jose maria Canizares. It is a challenging 6000 metre long par 72 course. theer si also a course at Granada which welcomes non members on weekdays. Less expensive and crowded than on the coast!

It has a longer than average season and is suitable for all abilities. Instruction and equipment hire are available. Husky dog sleighs and snowmobiles can be hired.

If that isn't enough cycling, fishing, horse riding and quad biking on an off road track near Antequera are all available!!

Local festivals: festivals are throughout the year, the highlight being SemanaSanto - Easter. In May in Iznajar local villages converge together at the lakeside with decorated floats and horses. In June the Feria sees locals party for three days. In the second week of September Iznajar honours its patron saint with a candlelit procession through the town. In Rute mid Julyis the festival of the Virgen del Carmen. Every saturday in July and August is the Musica Aurora celebrated by singing in the streets!

"Breathtaking views, traditional Spanish feel, very flexible accommodation"

We've stayed in quite a few villas in Spain and elsewhere, mostly with pretty good positions, but this is the best. The views are stunning and the houses themselves (we rented both the cottage and the farmhouse) are very attractive, restored very sympathetically. I'm sure they're good in the winter too, with the wood burners. The roof terraces are a master stroke. We ate up there all the time and often played games and drank late into the night watching the sun setting over the mountains. The swallows swooping over the pool added to the magic. I have never come across a swimming pool to match the view. It's set above the cottage and farmhouse, and like the roof terraces, has uninterrupted views over the olive groves and down to the lake. Thoroughly recommended.
