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.

Hola, et merci beaucoup!

Wow, what a great visit with Judy and Chris. We can't say enough about the quality of the hospitality that we received from these two generous people. We travel at least a couple of times each year and we always stay in self-catering accommodations. This gîte was top notch. Judy had even left us with a much appreciated selection of basic food provisions, that were so welcomed, after a long flight and the drive up from Malaga. The marvellous weather and stunning scenery in this part of Spain only added to our enjoyment. We were thrilled to be in the countryside sharing, although briefly, the everyday lives of the Spanish people. Thanks Judy and Chris, you guys are amazing.

Fabulous Andalusian Villa - Highly recommended

5 of 5
We loved La Vesanilla from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Juan Carlos and his lovely wife and son. After an hour's drive from Malaga we were very grateful for the beer and tapas they provided when they met us on arrival! This villa is located among the finest rural locations of all of Andalusia. Set high up in the hillside, it has gorgeous views of Lake Iznajar and the surrounding olive groves. Be prepared for a bit of an adventure on the final approach as there's a steep climb up to the villa through an olive grove before dropping down the last piece of the driveway (but no need for four-wheel drive!). It's worth it though as, once through the gate, you enter into a separate secluded and tranquil world. The pool area is a sheltered sun trap in the afternoon and the main patio in front of the villa is perfect for a late lunch while enjoying the views. The night skies are very dark and perfect for after-dinner stargazing. It's ideal for groups of friends sharing (like us) or bringing the whole family. Kids would love it. We found it to be a perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside, visiting Cordoba and Sevilla (longish but very easy drives), as well as nearby Iznajar, Antequerra and Rute. The villa is very spacious, comfortable and immaculately maintained by the owner and his family who are close by if needed. However, we found there was absolutely everything we needed during our stay. Oh, and we loved the traditional Spanish ambience of the property. Next time we come we'll stay closer to the villa as we now know there is much more to see in the nearby Subbetica region. Juan Carlos, thank you, we'll be back!
