Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Iznajar, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

Iznajar is a small town of around six thousand people located in the Cordoba region of Spain. Some years ago now, a reservoir was created below the town in the valley of the River Genil, and this transformed not only the area, but the tourist possibilities for the town. Self catering accommodation in Iznajar is best chosen from the villas in the immediate surrounding area, to best experience this wonderful piece of countryside. A rental villa is equipped and maintained to the highest standard, and is just the place to stay if you feel like the occasional evening barbeque in a place that feels just like home.

Things to Do on Holiday in Iznajar, Spain

There really is an abundance of leisure activities to partake in whilst on holidays in Iznajar, many of which are thanks to the newly created lake. Here, it is possible to drive onto the “beach” and set up for the day. Swimming, fishing, sailing and windsurfing are all possible on the lake, and it rarely feels crowded. The “real beaches” of the Costa del Sol are just an hour’s drive away, as are the Sierra Nevada mountains, which is a great place to hike and cycle. If a game of golf is more your thing, then a course is located just 40 minutes’ drive away.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Iznajar, Spain

There are many places of interest to visit during your holidays in Iznajar. The town itself has a 1200 year old castle, although admittedly, this is in a state of poor repair, which is a shame. Better, perhaps, is to travel the hour by car to Granada, and visit the Alhambra, a huge palatial complex surrounded by walls and towers. It is a wonderful example of Moorish architecture, although it was added to through successive years. Assuming you will be hiring a car (and it is recommended), a day trip to Cordoba will reveal a picturesque city, with an old Moorish Mosque now used as a cathedral, as well as many fascinating streets to wander through. If you are planning to stay in September, you might like to time your visit to coincide with the local week long fiesta which takes place… Enjoy the party!

Weather in Iznajar, Spain

Iznajar has a mild climate, with the highest average temperatures of 27 degrees Celsius being reached in the Summer months of July and August. December, January and February are the colder months, when the average temperatures drop to around the 10 degrees mark. That is still pretty respectable considering that the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just an hour’s drive away, are used as a ski resort during that time! Rain wise, July is virtually rain free with barely 8mm being a monthly average, while October and November see the heaviest rainfalls, with averages of seventy eight and sixty mm respectively.

Travel to Iznajar, Spain

The nearest airports are located in Granada (GRX) and Malaga (AGP), which are 48 and 67 km away. Hiring a car is probably the way forwards here, especially if you want to see some of the region, and it is possible to pick one up at whichever airport you choose. Flights into Granada (GRX) from the United Kingdom come via British Airways departing from London Heathrow (LHR). Departures from Stansted (STN) on Ryanair are convenient for those in the south of England who wish to land in Malaga.

Fab farmhouse with plenty of room, lovely pool in lovely country side.

5 of 5
We stayed here for nearly two weeks. We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful farmhouse. It had loads of room which really suited us being a large family. The double room, another lounge and balcony upstairs was perfect for my son and his girlfriend to have some of their own space. My children loved the pool outside and the views are beautiful. The local pub is within walking distance and the owner was so welcoming. The food was very good too! I was nervous about booking, l did not need to be. Peter made the whole process easy and went out of his way to help us with what we needed, cot, highchair, late check in/out. Thank you Peter for recommending the best car hire company we have ever used and letting us stay in your beautiful house. We had a lovely relaxing time, thank you.

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.
