Comments from previous guests

Casa Nogal - absolutely loved it - so relaxing and a great place to visit loads of interesting sites. The boys had a ball! ML & family Dorset

Just a note of thanks for letting us stay at Casa Nogal we all had a great holiday and it was so lovely to stay in a home not a property. The pool was definitely a huge bonus with the heat and I really enjoyed the tranquillity of my early morning lengths whilst being dive-bombed by the swallows!

TR and family Broadway Worcs

Quiet paradise in olive grove

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Casa Nogal was so relaxing and an absolute joy. Located in a peaceful olive grove, this beautifully renovated casa offers everything you need. The view from the cosy patio and when relaxing by the big pool is just amazing. We especially enjoyed when the swallows dived into the pool for a drink - and watching the stars at night from the pool. Highly recommended!

Un excellent séjour au milieu des oliviers...

  • 5 of 5

C'est une maison blanche adossée à la colline couverte d'oliviers, loin du bruit des villes surpeuplées, le silence n'y est troublé que par le chant des oiseaux...

Nous avons apprécié d'y séjourner en raison de la situation géographique du lieu, proche de Grenade, Antequera, Malaga...

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le charme des lieux et la grande piscine sous l'immense ciel bleu andalou...

Nous avons apprécié y trouver tout le nécessaire pour chaque jour, équipements et ustensiles de cuisine, produits divers de base pour l'alimentation, confort des chambres...

J'ai apprécié la disponibilité des propriétaires, au travers d'échange de mails, ainsi que celle des personnes gérant la maison et rencontrées sur place...

Vous l'aurez compris, nous y avons passé un excellent séjour...

Une semaine à Casa Nogal

  • 4 of 5

Séjour en famille en août 2016 - la maison est très agréable et fonctionnelle - à l'ombre au milieu des oliviers, aucun bruit sauf celui discret des animaux. Nous n'avons pas souffert de la chaleur. Piscine et BBQ sont agréables. Déçu par Iznajar et Villanueva de Tapia, pas grand chose à voir et à faire. Mais les autres villes alentours sont intéressantes (Archidona, Antequera, Malaga, Nerja, Grenade). Voiture indispensable.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Nogal. The whitewashed village of Iznajar has a Moorish castle at the top which is worth a visit and Lake Iznajar beach offers activities (kayaking, pedalos & swimming). Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Casa Nogal is located in rural Andalucia, traditional Spain, with a relaxed friendly way of life totally removed from the Costa del Sol. It is characterised by rolling hills covered in olive trees and scattered with ancient white-washed towns and villages, rich in local customs.

The Andalucian spring is warm and sunny with the olive groves carpeted with wild flowers, whilst summer is hot with endless blue skies. Autumn is pleasantly cooler and a good time to visit cities such as Seville the capital of Andalucia, Cordoba, Granada or Malaga.

The picturesque nearby village of Iznajar has all facilities as well as great views from the top of the village. Lake Iznajar offers kayaking, pedalos, windsurfing and dinghy and sailing in the summer. The other local village Villanueva de Tapia also has all facilities and a small daily indoor market. There are several excellent restaurants in the local area serving traditional Spanish food.

A British run riding stable is located 15 minutes away offering lessons, hacks or more ambitious treks.

The old Roman town of Antequera is 30 mins away, an unspoilt provincial market town with many ancient buildings, a bull-ring and Moorish castle. Closer still is Archidona with its unusual octagonal 18th century plaza.There is a golf course on the outskirts of Antequera and also the magnificent limestone scenery of El Torcal.

Granada and the Alhambra are an easy day trip as is Cordoba, where the principal attraction is the Mezquita.

As an alternative to driving into the cities, an efficient train service runs from Antequera to Seville and Ronda.

If you feel like a day on the coast, try Playa de la Burriana at the far end of Nerja.

Casa Nogal is approx 1 hour drive from Malaga airport which is served by several major airlines. Granada airport is approx 45 minutes drive - Easyjet operates a service from London Gatwick to Granada and BA from London City.
