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

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.

It was equipped with all we needed including microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc. Nicely presented and furnished. Pool was perfect for swimming in. Really nothing that could be improved. It was great to be provided with beach towels for use by the pool. Too hot for much sight seeing - we did get to Córdoba which is well worth seeing for its old town. It is only about an hr away as is Malaga if you want the sea and Granada is a bit nearer. So a great base for sightseeing when not so hot. The local town Iznajar is very pleasant and has a few super markets. There is a bigger supermarket in Rute about 20mins and Carrefour in Lucena about 40mins away. Several restaurants are listed in the villa guide but we did not get a chance to visit them. Giulia was incredibly friendly and helpful - she arranged some shopping for us which was a great help as not much is open on Sundays. She also quickly replaced a fan that stopped working. Would highly recommend the villa to others - we did not miss having the sea and a beach nearby (there is in fact one on the lake but we did not use it). The location is really stunning.

                                                                                                Located around 1 hour from Malaga, Fuente del Conde is situated in some beautiful hills, not too far from the hill-top town of Iznajar. Kayenne sits in the village itself and is within 2 mins walking distance of the small local shop and the pub/restaurant. Larger supermarkets are located about 30 mins away at Loja. The property has a fantastic pool and garden, with lots of areas for sun and shade. There is plenty of space for eating outside and there is access to a bbq. Our kids (3 & 6 years) loved the pool and due to the climate and warm pool temperature, were splashing around all all hours of the day/evening. There was an abundance of inflatables and toys which also kept them amused. We were able to access the property WiFi in the pool/garden area. The apartment itself was clean and tidy with ample space and provided for our needs. The kids were more than happy in the twin room, which was great for them and cool most of the time which meant they slept very well. There is a AC unit in the main bedroom too. In terms of location, the more quiet and rural setting suited us, as we were able to mix up time relaxing by the pool with days away visiting places and exploring. Fuente Del Conde is close enough to coast, but also not too far from other attractions in the area which are worth a visit (Ronda, Granada, Malaga etc.). We would also really recommend a day trips to the lake at Emblace de Los Bermejales and a walk up the Rio Chillar near Nerja. The close town of Inzajar is well worth visiting too. Kath and Kevin are fantastic hosts and as the complex is part of their home, you really feel a connection to the property and the village. They are both really friendly and happy to help with any question or request. We felt very welcomed and relaxed for the entire holiday.

But in reality, at the Finca, there were so many different places to get away and be on your own if you needed to that this was just not the case. Upon first arriving we were totally blown away by how beautiful and peaceful the finca and its surroundings were. Everyone in the party was so chilled out for our whole stay, it was just perfect. Even the children never got bored, they always had something to keep them occupied, from table tennis to swimming in the full size pool overlooking the valley, playing pool or just relaxing with the many books at the finca. I've never seen our kids more relaxed. The whole family were just at ease. Another bonus was where the Finca was located. The area is just beautiful, we spent numerous days down at the beach on the huge blue lake at Iznajar. With pedal boats, canoes, drinks and the most comfortable sunbeds. The kids loved it here and we would definitely recommend a visit to the cafe on the lake, the food is great value for money and traditionally Spanish, plus tastes amazing. Also in Iznajar town there is an English bar called bar Verde, which we stumbled across when having a drive out. We had our last meal out as a group, the food was amazing and they really looked after us. Another invaluable thing was the information pack left in the finca by the team, this told us where the supermarkets were, where to eat out, how to walk to the bar in the village. Which was one fun experience through the olive groves, even though we were very hot and bothered when we got there. The cold beer and great free tapas put on by Antonio was well worth the walk. We would definitely return to this breathtaking place.
