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.

Stunning scenery, Beautiful villa and fantastic pool. There is a large Carrefour at Lucena we found about half an hour away or a smaller supermarket in Rute. Manuel showed us around and looked after the pool for us. He was really helpful and friendly. This is a great place to stay.
