We were blown away by this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 10 days in July. The house was lovely and the pool was very large. There was plenty of indoor and outdoor space for everyone, there were 7 adults staying in total. To say that the photos of this home do not do it justice is an understatement. The place is much larger than it looks in the photos and there is some outdoor seating that isn't featured in photos. We were completely blown away by this place. The caretaker Miguel was just lovely. He greeted us on arrival and even took some of us to the shops and showed us around the town. He offered to take us to the shops a second time during our stay. He went out of his way to be helpful and we really appreciated this. The house is practically next door to a restaurant and less than a 5 minute walk from a second restaurant. In the opposite direction to these two restaurants you will find the hotel, it's less than a 10 minute walk from the house and does really good food and has a lovely view. It is less than 5 minutes walk to the beach where you can go pedal boating and canoeing. I would recommend the pedal boating, we really enjoyed it. We did not have a car and so found the house a bit far from town. Having said that, we managed fine. About 10 minutes walk in the direction of town, just before the bridge, you'll find two bars. One of which, the one closest to the bridge, Cuatro Vientos, is really good. They do nice complementary tapas and good food from the menu too. It is run by a really friendly Spanish family, Miguel, the owner has good English too, which is handy. Just across the bridge heading towards town is a lovely restaurant, slightly more expensive than the others, but worth it. The town is about 25 minutes walk from the house and is uphill for the last 10 minutes. It's nice and the castle is worth a visit. We could only find small supermarkets that were quite expensive so opted for the fruit and veg shops and bakeries mostly. There are a couple of nice places to eat and drink in town, but personally, considering the walk, we preferred to go to the ones nearer the house, they were just as nice, if not nicer. We would highly recommend this house, the owner, Kate, was very good to deal with and very prompt to reply to any queries we had. We had a great holiday, thanks so much for having us!

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This is going to be really easy. Stunning house, Stunning location. The photos of this house do not do it full justice. The view from the top balcony is absolutely amazing. The facilities are brilliant, with everything you could need. The swimming pool is large and refreshing, with good pool side loungers and ample seating. The caretaker is helpful and friendly. We will not be looking for alternative accommodation next time we visit Spain, can't wait for our next holiday in this property.

Wonderful villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in July and it was just perfect for us as a family with three grown-up daughters. Everyone had their own space and bathroom plus plenty of spaces to share, as this villa is very big. The villa is high quality and spotlessly clean and the pool is lovely - the photos don't do it justice. There are terraces on each floor where you can sit outside in the shade and enjoy the glorious views over the lake. The town itself is at the top of a very steep hill but it's a lovely place to wander around and everyone we met was so friendly. If you don't feel like making that climb, there is a beach restaurant 5 minutes walk from the villa and the food is excellent. Miguel who manages the property was a complete delight and actually drove us around when we arrived to show us where everything was in the town. We loved our time here and it was the perfect place to relax and yet be within easy reach of Seville, Granada and Cordoba. No one I spoke to had heard of Iznajar and perhaps that's a good thing but with its ancient hilltop town and vast lake it's so pretty. I would definitely come back here and recommend this villa.

Great Villa close to restaurants

  • 4 of 5

Very nice villa in very good condition, pool was great and quite private. Location was excellent with 3 restaurants within easy walking distance.

The only negatives were no AC and couldn't get in to villa until 4pm and had to depart at 8:15am.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your lovely comments, we hope yiu enjoyed your stay. We do apologise for my inconvenience with arrival time of 4pm, unfortunately during the busy summer months our housekeeper needs between 10am and 4pm to prepare the house between guests arriving on the same day as the last guests depart. We can arrange different arrival and departure times when possible to allow for flight times, or can allow guests to drop bags in earlier if requested in advance. Thanks again Kate

Wonderful holiday in this fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

I must say our 10 days was wonderful. The manager Miguel met us with a welcome pack of essential food for a few days.

We were amazed at the vast amount of space inside the villa with 4 large bedrooms most of them ensuite. It has a very clean & welcoming atmosphere with many facilities you find at home. There is a fabulous swimming pool & outside seating areas.

We soon found the walk into Iznajar got easier as the time went on. Just take plenty of water.

We loved the different views of the lake. Which we wouldn't have seen if we had hired a car, but a visit to Córdoba is a must.

The surrounding area around the lake was very picturesque so don't forget your camera. Especially for the sunsets over the lake.

There was plenty of shops for everyday food if needed. But the food, tapas and wine in the bars was enough to sustain you for the walk home.

For evening drinks & good food the beach bar was a very pleasant change.

We met Spanish friends of the owners who welcomed us into their home which was lovely.

A holiday to remember & hopefully return.

Accessible via two bridges, Iznajar is is almost entirely surrounded by the Lake of Andalucia, a reservoir stretching out for over 20 miles which offers world-class fishing, water sports and a beautifully clean beach. The water in the lake is warm in the summer months and wonderful for swimming. The area is surrounded by an abundance of interesting and historical villages and towns and Iznajar itself boasts one of the oldest Moorish Castles in the region as well as ancient churches and an historic library.

To eat out in the area you are spoiled for choice as Iznajar and the surrounding area has a wealth of traditional tapas bars and restaurants. The prime location of Villa Almendras directly on the lake of Iznajar, whilst still close to the amenities of the Pueblo Blanco of Iznajar makes it an ideal place to spend your holidays.
