Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa is beautiful and was perfect for the weekend. The rooms were set up perfectly just as we requested. We were greeted by Andres from the moment we got there and he took care of all of our needs. The alcohol was all ordered and set out, the fire was burning in the main dining room, which was amazing. The arrangements of the band and chef were all sorted to perfection and I had nothing to worry about the whole weekend.



The chef was amazing, the food was delicious and everyone was so impressed. The transfers and transport was sorted and timed to a tee! Manolo, our coach driver was fantastic.



The breakfast was amazing and so impressive - completely exceeded our expectations and the staff at the villa are a credit to you.



I hope the villa was not in too much of a mess, we did try and clear up most of the hen related items!! Im sure Andre will fill you in on what they were!!



The whole weekend was arranged to perfection, thank you so much for making it what it was and helping me with the arrangements from the start. Thanks also to Andre who couldn't do enough to help us.



It will be an unforgettable experience!



We intend on returning to the villa - hopefully during the summer -I will contact you shortly for a quote - i know all of the girls thought the same thing - and a reunion is probably on the cards.



Again - thanks so much to ALL at the Cortijo.

My wife and I have lived in Iznajar, Andalucia for 8 years and spent 6 of those lovingly restoring this abandoned olive mill.

We have 3 children, all of whom attend the local primary school and feel supremely lucky that we found this stunning spot.

Stefan Bala purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

We knew we wanted to leave London and wanted a little adventure. We spent 5 years or so travelling all over Spain and France but something just felt right when we saw this huge building that offered plenty of possibilities. It was just one of those cases when something you see just feels right.

The size and location. I wanted somewhere where i could turn up the radio on Sunday mornings and no one would complain.

Also the Spanish people. I have never met a more friendly and inclusive bunch of people and have made some of my best friends here in Iznajar.

WOW - AN AMAZING STAY AT TRULY FABULOUS VENUE AND

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most amazing week at this wonderful Villa in the heart of the beautiful Andalusian Countryside. Tucked away amongst the olive groves, it was everything we could have wished for and more. Great location, beautiful Villa & pool, space, privacy, well maintained. Our party was 22 people of ages 4 - 82 and everyone was happy ALL the time. Tons of space, plenty of comfort and Andreas was great at sorting us out. I had a wonderful party there for my Birthday and the chef was great (tapas & Paella - highly recommend). Andreas also helped stock our fridge before we arrived and was generally at hand to answer all our queries. We will most definitely be back ! Highly recommend

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, BEAUTIFUL AREA, AMAZING STAFF

  • 4 out of 5
I rented this villa for a group of 6 adults who wanted an authentic, Kosher, Spanish experience. Everything about it was wonderful--from the charming decor, spacious rooms, the price, and especially the staff. Andres, the property manager, made our stay wonderful with his attention to detail and his knowledge of where to get the best and cheapest of anything we needed--from kitchen supplies to drinks and olive oil. The area is also absolutely gorgeous. The nearby village, Iznajar, is a tiny, beautiful area with a breathtaking lake and old castle. I would highly recommend the villa.

FANTASTIC 50TH BIRTHDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We celebrated my husbands 50th birthday here with 13 of our friends. THE PLACE IS FANTASTIC it had plenty of rooms to choose from, our room was directly in front of the pool and very specious. Everyone agreed they had great rooms. The place was very clean and stocked of all your bare essentials ie, coffee,tea and sugar, towels even sun creams. We used two of the many kitchens which was great, no-one getting in each others way. They organised for barrels of beer to be waiting for us. Very important. Each night we ate in a different part of the villa (several court yards) and it was like eating at different restaurants. They had stereo;s everywhere so music playing all day and night. No complaints as the villa is in the middle of the mountains. On my husbands birthday they organised a chief to come in and cook us a tapas meal. We all agreed that this was delicious. When we did go out they were happy to sort our taxi's for us. Stefan and Andres cannot do enough for you. This place is worth is a visit and we hope to return next year.

CORJITO ANDALUCIA

  • 5 out of 5
We had an absolutely brilliant time at the villa. Set in a beautiful and secluded location, the villa is nicely furnished throughout with plenty of bedroom space, large communal areas and a lovely pool. Stefan was easily contactable in the run up to our stay to answer all our queries and then bent over backwards to accommodate our requests throughout our stay. Although the villa is in a remote location, it is also not far from lots of places to visit and more strenuous activities than lounging by the pool. In all the holiday was perfect and I could not recommend this place more highly!!

WOW!

  • 5 out of 5
We could not recommend this villa highly enough,if you are looking for a quiet get away for a large group this is the villa to choose.The owner stefan has restored this old building to a very high standard with some beautiful rooms all with ensuite.We were a group of 18 rangeing in ages from 10 to 65 and we all had a fabulous time,Stefan the owner was a godsend organising fishing,horseriding and kayaking trips and arranging lifts for us all.He even took us to the supermarket on our first day waiting while we shopped and dropping us back,he was always at the end of a phone to help in any way he could.We took advantage of hireing a large fridge at a low cost and stefan organised to have all our drinks delivered for free at supermarket prices this was a great idea that we found hugely beneficial.We spent our days swimming in the lovely pool and sun bathing while the younsters in the group went off on trips and our evenings were spent eating and drinking in the gorgeous banquet hall .We would definately holiday here again.Thanks stefan for a great holiday from The Tokeley clan.

GREAT FAMILY AND FRIENDS HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful property in secluded position. We were a large group of adults and teenagers who enjoyed the whole experience immensely. Didn't actually leave the property other than for food shopping and the odd wander around. Had an amazing meal cooked by a husband and wife team for a special occasion, would definitely recommend that as an experience of traditional Spanish food. Stefan the owner is charming and helpful and the accommodation a high standard. Pool lovely with plenty of chairs and loungers. Table tennis and pool kept everyone entertained. Would thoroughly recommend for big groups and the accommodation is such that there is plenty of space for when people want to be on their own. Definitely need a car but the local town, with a large supermarket, is only ten minutes away and plenty of sightseeing, bars and restaurants within a short drive too.

Location

Car: necessary

Cortijo Andalus is perfectly placed to take in all the major sites of Andalucia being just an hour from Granada (the Alhambra), Cordoba (the Mezquita) and Malaga (and the coast) and an hour and a half from Seville and from the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada.

Closer to hand (about 40 minutes away) is Antequerra and Iznajar and Rute are just 5 minutes drive away. These 2 villages provide supermarkets, banks, reataurants and bars.

Iznajar is a beautiful white washed village that is perched on a mountain and surrounded by the largest lake in Andalucia. It is a beautiful place for walking, cycling, fishing and bird watching.

As well as being able to organise airport transits, chefs, musicians (from jazz to Flamenco), massage and yoga therapists (see links page) to visit the cortijo we can also arrange for some spectacular days out. These include deep sea fishing for groups of between 6 and 24 and activity days (horse riding, quad biking, paint balling and kayaking)
