3 Bed country house in Iznajar
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our wonderful self catering villa Casa Los Pinos is located in the small hamlet of Iznajar, a traditional hilltop white village - 'Pueblo Blanco' in the heart of Andalucia. It appears like an island rising out of the surrounding water with its 1200 year old castle perched at the top, a popular visit together with the museums and other local attractions. Iznajar's fiestas are also second to none! The village's bars, shops and restaurants give you the feel of 'Real' Spain.
The villa is set in a tranquil, scenic, rural location surrounded by olive groves, Casa Los Pinos is ideal for a relaxing family holiday. It has been inspected and approved by the Junta de Andalucia department of tourism as an official Vivienda Rural registration number VTAR/CO/134.
We have tried to create a tasteful and traditional Spanish country villa, restored and comfortably furnished to sleep 6 - two double bedrooms, one with a king sized bed, one with a double; and a twin bedded room with full sized single beds. There is also a sofa bed downstairs should it be required for an additional person. The main bedrooms have air conditioning. The family bathroom has a w.c., jacuzzi bath, separate shower cubicle and hand wash basin. The downstairs shower room has a w.c., shower cubicle and hand wash basin.
The house is equipped for the modern family! Free Wi-Fi, Tv and radio, DVD/CD player. The large farmhouse style kitchen is equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher.
Outside: The private pool and sun terrace has its own shaded area with sun loungers and a hammock for your comfort. There is a BBQ and on the pergola terrace you will find the outside dining area. The pretty, totally enclosed gardens make this a safe family holiday home.
With good access and mountain views it is close to a stream and a few minutes drive to the historical village of iznajar with its 32 km long lake. The village has many shops, bars, restaurants and hire facilities for canoeing and sailing. The lake area is ideal for swimming, walking and cycling; there is also plenty of shady woodland for picnics.
The villa is only one hour's drive north from Malaga airport and one hour's drive west from Granada airport, this makes the villa great base for seeing the surrounding areas such as the Subetica National Park, Granada and the Alhambra, Cordoba and the Mesquita, or the magnificent city of Seville.. Malaga and the coast are also within easy reach where you will find family and tourist attractions.

The Andalucia region
Andalucia is home to a large and varied selection of towns, cities and places to visit:
SEVILLE - some 2.5 hours by car it is one of the largest historical centres in Europe.
MALAGA - About 1.15 hours by car, Malaga is the capital of the Costa del Sol with miles of sandy beaches.
GRANADA – 1.15 hours by car. Granada stands at the foot of Spain's highest mountain range, the Sierra Nevada and is famous for the Alhambra Palace and stunning gardens.
CORDOBA - 1.5 hours by car. Cordoba is home to the Great Mosque, or "Mezquita". In early May, homeowners proudly festoon their patios with flowers to compete for the city's "most beautiful courtyard" contest.
Iznajar appears like an island that rises out of the surrounding water and is perched on a hilltop. Its transformation occurred some years ago with the creation of the water reservoir, romantically named The Lake of Andalucia. Iznajar now has a waterfront overlooking an inland sea some 30kms long, and containing an estimated 900 million cubic metres of water.
The ruins of the 1,200-year-old castle are a key attraction Also worth visiting is the Santiago Church, built over time during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Iznajar also has a small but fascinating municipal museum, dedicated to its agricultural heritage and local customs.
Local cuisine reflects Iznajar's position in a prime pork production region, as well as variations on classic Andaluz platos. There are many local taverns and tapas bars in and around the village.
Semana Santa, Easter week is the most important festival here. Townsfolk come together to present a religious theatrical epic with key scenes from the bible and the crucifixion. They celebrate the day of San Marcos on April 25 by quitting the town entirely for a mass picnic in the countryside at Valdearenas, the lakeside beach. Iznajar's annual September feria usually takes place from September 7-10.

"Peaceful villa and great outdoor space"
We had a great holiday, staying in the villa. The location was peaceful which was great for relaxing around the pool and bbq's in the evening. The local towns of Iznajar and Rute offered more choice for eating out and the nearby lake was fun for kayaking. We also took a day trip to Granada and to the coast which was easily accessible in the car.
Would definetly go back with friends.
