I really didn´t expect the house and Iznajar area tobe as good as the write up but it was BETTER!! We had a fabulous holiday. So onto the admin bits, booking was very easy and lots of emails between us and Julie meant that we felt very happy going to Iznajar. Whole process was made simple. We used the Cooks Night Off option from Bar Verde for our welcome pack (many thanks Scott and Naomi) and we also has a couple of the main meals,, delicious. We spent mornings strolling around the beach area or sitting on the huge terrace reading a book and evenings with a bottle of red wine, infront of the log burner. Kids loved exploring the land, glad to say they had a taste of the real Spain, how lucky were we. I am sure we will return, thanks you so much xxx

The views are amazing, and we were very lucky to have good weather, especially in March, so sat outside taking in the fantastic view over the lake. Our host was very friendly and immensely helpful without being intrusive. I am always a bit apprehensive when arriving at a holiday apartment hoping that they are as good as the photo's. We needn't have worried, they are furnished to a high standard and everything you need is at hand. There are night lights in the bathrooms, which I thought were a great idea. The owner does have dogs, I am not a great dog lover but have to admit the dogs were friendly and were not noisy . There area between our apartment and the owners is fenced off and the pool can be reached through a gate. We were not brave enough to swim in the pool as it was a bit cold! I'm sure it is lovely in the warmer months. The nearby village of Rute is charming with some nice places to eat. Lucena and Antiquera are lovely towns within a 30min drive. I especially liked the market at Antiquera which Murri our host told us about. The Alhambra is about 1 hour away but well worth the visit. Overall I would say this is a fantastic place to stay away from the tourist track. We will definitely be considering staying here again. Thank you for being such a great host Murri, your knowledge of the area was amazing.

The setting, in an olive grove, is idyllic. The surrounding rolling countryside is all olive trees and vines, and the whole vast area is surrounded by distant mountains. It is really quiet. However, November may not be the best time to go. We had seven days of rain, and it was VERY cold, particularly at night. Gavin and Jermena, who live next door, were really kind and helpful, and provided us with an electric heater when we asked for it. If the weather had been better we would have done more travelling. Córdoba is very do-able and worth it. Seville is probably possible in a day, with an early start, likewise Granada. There is a major supermarket 15 minutes drive away, which is worth a trip in itself! If the sun shone, you wouldn't want to leave the apartment.
