About Nik Rainer

Nik, Jacqui, Rosie and George left the UK in 2003 to start their new life in Andalucia.

Having lived around the world and stayed in the best and the worst the world had to offer, we think we know what people want from a holiday.

We bought this old Spanish farm house, Casa Caballos and then later Villa San Cristobel because we love everything about this part of Spain. The food, the people, the architecture and just about everything here that makes you feel that you are alive!

We live here full time and are committed to our life here and providing a memorable holiday for you. With almost 10 years experience, we think we have cracked it!

Nik Rainer purchased this villa in 2005

Why Nik Rainer chose Loja

Villa San Cristobel is located in Puerto Blanquillo or White Haven, a small hamlet nestled in the Sierra Martilla, at the heart of Granada's olive growing region. Just an hour's drive from the coast, airport and Granada. The nearest villages; Zagra and Ventorres de San Jose, both retain a peaceful, traditional Andalucian way of life that is quickly disappearing on the coast and in many of the well visited Pueblo Blancos or 'White Villages' elsewhere. None of the Bars or Restaurants will appear in the Zagat or Michelin guides, however armed with a few Spanish words and a phrase book you will be welcomed by the friendly patrons and locals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Flipkey

Have just spent two weeks at this villa in rural andalucia. The villa is in a wonderful position looking down a cross a valley to a lake and beyond. One of the great features of the villa is the terrace which has a very clever arrangement with overhead 'sails; which keeps the terrace shady all day making it a very comfortable place to laze about on. It had all the facilities one would expect and was very easy to live in for two weeks. Nik made everything straightforward so there were no difficulties with arranging the rental and the instructions for finding the property were clear and accurate. If you want a well appointed comfortable villa off the usual tourist track then this villa is highly recommended.

Lost in magnificent andalucia!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent the week before Easter with our perants and children in the fantastiv Villa Christoble. Although there is plenty to see locally in Granada and Malaga, we opted to spend most of our time on the beautiful terrace looking down to the Lake and enjoying our house. We'll be back!

Villa San Cristobel is a huge five bedroom villa sleeping up to ten. Set amongst tranquil olive groves within the Sierra Martilla mountains, you are just 45 minutes from Granada city, with panoramic views down to the lake at Iznajar, and just one hour from an idyllic beach.

Painstakingly refurbished, and lovingly transformed into a luxurious holiday home with private pool, the villa is in its own landscaped gardens and was once the village school. The property has free broadband wifi and plenty of games, a Table Tennis Table, DVDs and separate seating areas, making it perfect for families or large groups. With many pieces of original art, it is a truly special holiday home.

Situated in the Andalucian olive belt, it's a perfect base for trips out to the coast, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Cordoba, Seville, and Granada with its Alhambra Palace. Alternatively you can lounge by the pool or visit one of the local villages for a leisurely home cooked lunch or tapas. We can also arrange for a local restaurant to prepare a sumptuous Paella for your group which you can eat watching the sun go down over the lake on the Villa's terrace.

The Lake at Iznajar itself, is the largest in Andalucia. The beaches at nearby Iznajar provide a wonderful place to lay on in the sun and swim in beautiful freshwater. You can also camp here, fish for trout, bass and many more fish or try some of the water sports in the summer like canoeing or sailing.

The area is crisscrossed with amazing hiking trails that will allow you to observe Andalucian flora and fauna up close.

As your hosts we are usually in hand to help you with anything. Weather that is translating with a local doctor, picking the best places to eat or just having a chat and letting you know about the area. We have had happy guests for over 10 years now, so nothing is too much trouble when you on Holiday with us.
