Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Cabra, Spain your home away from home

Amazing villa, views to die for and a delightful owner

5 of 5
We have stayed at many villas in Andalucia over the years, and this was by far the easiest one to get to from Malaga airport. The roads are really good right up to the turn off. The directions we were given were perfect, together with directions to Archidona to get supplies on the way. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Giulia, shown around and given all the advice and knowledge of the area we needed to get started on our fabulous holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean with top quality bedding and towels, with a lot of thought going into the decor. All the bedrooms are good sizes. One huge double/kingsize bedroom with loads of storage and an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath, toilet and wash basin. Again plenty of space to put things in the sink unit. The next bedroom upstairs is twin/double with en-suite toilet and sink unit. Both these rooms have lovely balocnies with beautiful views. The downstairs bedroom again a double/twin has doors opening onto the stunning courtyard and pool area. There is a another bathroom with shower, toilet and sink unit downstairs for use with this room. Outside there are various patio areas like small rooms in amongst lovely planting with views over the beautiful lake and thousands of olive trees on the slopes of the surrounding hills. Iznajar itself is stunning with excellent bars and tapas, and we were lucky to be there for the Festival of the Virgin which was a sight to behold. Rute is close by and like Archidona has supermarket and shops and bars. Granada and Cordoba are around one hour fifteen minutes away. with Seville around two hours away and visiting some or all of these is a must. We would struggle to find a more perfect spot so if we visit this area again we wouldn't hesitate to re-book Casa Feliz.

Wonderful villa in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We stayed at the villa in July and it was just perfect for us as a family with three grown-up daughters. Everyone had their own space and bathroom plus plenty of spaces to share, as this villa is very big. The villa is high quality and spotlessly clean and the pool is lovely - the photos don't do it justice. There are terraces on each floor where you can sit outside in the shade and enjoy the glorious views over the lake. The town itself is at the top of a very steep hill but it's a lovely place to wander around and everyone we met was so friendly. If you don't feel like making that climb, there is a beach restaurant 5 minutes walk from the villa and the food is excellent. Miguel who manages the property was a complete delight and actually drove us around when we arrived to show us where everything was in the town. We loved our time here and it was the perfect place to relax and yet be within easy reach of Seville, Granada and Cordoba. No one I spoke to had heard of Iznajar and perhaps that's a good thing but with its ancient hilltop town and vast lake it's so pretty. I would definitely come back here and recommend this villa.
