Beautifully located & appointed accommodation with fantastic views.

We absolutely loved staying in Casita La Loma so much that we even booked for next year before leaving! If you want to relax away from the madding crowds then this is the place ....... just fantastic.

The owners/hosts, right next door, are a joy to be with, and we look forward to spending time with them again next year.

Peaceful and relaxing with amazing lake views

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, peaceful place to stay and relax with the most amazing views of the lake. Everything about the casita was in character and beautifully done. The pool especially was a real blessing in the summer heat! We visited the local towns beyond Iznajar as well as a drive to Granada/Alhambra. Above all, the owners Gaynor and Martin were such charming people - friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

La Loma is perfectly situated to travel to Granada, Seville and Malaga for a day of sightseeing. And then, you can spend a day resting by the beautiful pool, looking out over hills filled with olive trees, Lake Iznájar and snow-capped mountains in the distance. Gaynor and Martin are perfect hosts and have furnished the casita beautifully, with everything you need for your stay. We wish we lived closer so that we could return often!
