There’s a lovely mosaic-topped Moroccan table which can comfortably seat up to eight. The theme throughout is a delightful mix of classic Moorish and Andaluz furnishings set against modern, white walls, shiny terracotta floor tiles, pine windows and door.

From the living room French windows open on to the large, main terrace. With a covered dining area furnished with a long teak dining table and plenty of cushioned bench seating. Here you will enjoy most of your alfresco meals and evenings.

All the living areas have easy access to various outside terraces and all the terraces take total advantage of the stunning views and surrounding.

A perfect location from where to explore Andalucia

Its great historic cities, the beaches of the Costa del Sol and in winter Sierra Nevada.

Five of the six bedrooms are on the ground floor. Three of the bedrooms are doubles with en-suite bathroom. Two of these with shower only, one with a bath. The other two bedrooms are twin bedded, sharing a shower room. Four of the bedrooms have doors opening onto a long lower terrace that runs along the length of the house.

The sixth bedroom, the master, is slightly independent of, but connected to, the main house. It’s a large room with a lovely sitting area in front of its open fireplace. With high, beamed ceiling, the room is attractively decorated in blues and whites. From the sleeping area, and from en suite bathroom, the views of the lake and mountains are truly stunning. And just to make it more than perfect, it has access to a private terrace that also connects to the higher terraces at the front of the main house.

As throughout the house, the bedrooms have terracotta floor tiles, all-white walls, pine windows and doors. Each room is unique with touches of Moroccan and Andaluz decor adding colour, character and excitement. All are heated via wall radiators.
The interiors remain cool all day, benefiting from the constant gentle breeze – but there are fans in all the bedrooms and in both the living areas, just in case they are needed.

Surrounded by terraced Mediterranean gardens, the banks are planted with jasmine, lavender, rosemary, fan palms, oleander…

A narrow paths leads up to the generous (10m x 5m) infinity pool. The pool terraces are a dream! Besides having the most unbelievable panorama of rolling hills, olive groves, shimmering lake and wide open skies – there are covered areas with day beds, many loungers, hammocks…and a handy WC. Heaven on earth!

With so few houses around light pollution here is virtually zero and this is an amazing location from where to explore the night skies.
Ideal for large families or a group of friends wishing to holiday together in a heavenly rural setting. Perfect for exploring inland Andalucia and the coast, for walking … or totally disconnecting from the outside world and just enjoying the sun and relaxing by the pool.
Peaceful but not so remote. From here it’s just five minutes to the village of Iznájar, in the other direction Rute is also close by. In one hour you can be in Granada, Córdoba or Málaga. A little further away, Marbella, Sevilla or the ski resort at Sierra Nevada. A perfect location from where to take in all the major sites of Andalucía, its great historic cities, the beaches of the Costa del Sol and in winter Sierra Nevada.

What do guests say about this villa?

We recently enjoyed a two week holiday in this fabulous house. It was everything we could have asked for and more. The property is incredibly comfortable, has everything you could possibly need and is full of charm and character. It has wonderful communal areas, AND lots of little nooks to tuck yourself away for some peace and quiet, perfect for our large group of 10 (with teens!). The pool area is fantastic and the kids loved the fact that it was deep (which meant it maintained a great temperature) and was perfect for jumping and diving in. We were a little worried about there being no air conditioning before we went, but found that the interior of the house remained cool all day, and the height and aspect meant that the property benefitted from a constant lovely breeze. The views and sunsets are out of this world and we enjoyed the amazing starry nights. It is perfectly situated for visiting Granada, Cordoba and Malaga (make sure you book Alhambra tickets well in advance though). Thank you for sharing your wonderful home in Spain.

Kate (Aug 2019)

The villa is beautiful and perfectly located to explore Andalucia. The views from the pool and the terraces are spectacular, especially at sunset. It was a pleasure to deal with the owner. He provided us with a complete document about the villa and its surroundings. I highly recommend this peaceful villa where one can relax in the middle of olive groves while enjoying stunning views on the lake.


Most amazing place. Arrived and could not believe how spectacular it was. Met all our expectations and more
