We stayed here 3 nights and out of the other two places we stayed while in Andalusia this was our favourite for views and outside space. the casa is just outside the town of Iznajar just off a small road in an enviable position overlooking part of the lake, and hills covered with olive trees. There is a swimming pool,...

I agree with most of the positive postings on TA, which is why we booked our stay here. It is a nice, rustic guesthouse with a nice pool and lovely view over the reservoir. However, at nearly 100€ a night it was expensive in comparison with other hotels we stayed at, which were 4* and in the centre of the...

I’m really sorry to hear you didn’t fully enjoy your stay with us. Fresh pool towels are always available on request and remember it was the hottest summer in 40 years. Please accept my sincere apologies for not having fully met your expectations, Christian

Beautiful rustic rooms, fabulous pools with what surely must be one of the best views over lake Iznajar, great breakfasts and a very friendly host in Christian. All in all, highly recommended and if we are in the area again we will certainly be back.

“We went in mid summer during a heat wave so rooms were very hot at night as only have a fan and no AC. All rooms look onto the patio area and have lovely views. Room was very clean ”

“Chose a B&B room if you want to be near the pool and make the most of the view.”

“Would recommend - B&B room over the appartments. You can still cook your own meals in the kitchen, but are a lot closer to the pool and the terrace with the view.”
