A beautiful eclectic house in a stunning lakeside location with balconies/terraces galore that take full advantage of the amazing view.

The space
This is a wonderful opportunity to stay at this beautiful rental property on the lake in Iznajar, one of the most stunning areas of Spain.
This house is situated in the Pueblo Blanco of Iznajar which is itself situated on the largest body of fresh water in Andalusia. It appears very traditional from the outside. Sometimes with the older Spanish houses this can mean dark and lots of small rooms but not the case with Casa Barbara. This property is deceptively spacious. From outside it appears dinky and bijou but open the front door and you have immediate views through the house to the lake beyond. Fully reformed without ripping the traditional heart out, this get-away offers plenty of space inside and out for 6 people, sleeping in 3 double rooms, all of which are en suite. For outside space the house has a terrace or balcony on every floor, none of which are overlooked so you have total privacy along with your own slice of the lake view.
The decor is carefully considered to reflect the rural beauty and style of Southern Spain whilst reflecting some of the owner's taste.
The ground floor offers lounge, dining and kitchen facilities which then open onto a dining terrace.
The first floor has 2 double en suite bedrooms, one of which has its own terrace, and the top floor the master suite, also with its own shower room and terrace.
Then back down into the basement you'll find a wonderful cool 'summer' lounge fully kitted out with built in sofas, TV and separate bar area with its own fridge for that cold beer and wine storage – essential!. The summer lounge leads onto the largest of the lake view terraces.
The house is perfectly situated in the historic village of Iznajar, great access for bars and restaurants within walking distance, or a cool stroll through the narrow streets in the heat of the day. An added bonus over country properties is that the location means you are able to walk out of the front door be in the hub of the village with many bars, average price is €1.50 for a drink and tapa, and less for a good coffee. There are 3 butchers, a bakery, and several small grocers with lovely fresh veg a lot of it grown locally. The baker passes by and toots his horn at 10 every morning for a selection of fresh bread delivered to your door.
Of course the house is ideally situated for some of the best sightseeing in the world. Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Malaga are all possible as day trips. There are also lots of lesser known but equally charming white pueblos to explore too.
The lake offers swimming from its own sandy beach plus a range of water sports and restaurants. There is also a public pool nearby, open in peak summer months, with a children's play and padding area and a snack bar. We occasionally visit Marbella for the day for a swim in the sea; it's all possible and accessible. Details on available activities will be sent to you once you have booked.
NOTE 1 – the photos were taken in December whilst still making changes to the property, expect more gorgeousness when you get here including sunbeds! It was also raining one of the days….
NOTE 2 – the property is spread over 4 levels. The property is also on a hill with parking a short walk away (you can pick up and drop off outside the house).

Guest access
This rental is for full access to the whole house and all it's facilities, apart from 1 small cupboard in the master bedroom dressing room.

Location

Iznájar, Andalucía, Spain

Iznajar is an historic medieval moorish outpost and those influences can be seen throughout the village. Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the largest lake in Andalusia the area offers lots of ourdoor pursuits from swimming to walking, kayaking, rafting etc. Or a pamper session / massage, book and a glass of wine vibe, it's totally up to you.
If you are here during July and August a free bus can takes you to the town pool or why not just wander down to the beach at the lake for a swim, make a day of it with 2 beachside bars to cater for all your ice cream needs.
The town is pretty and cool in the mornings, lots to see and local supermarkets with locally grown produce. Have a morning trip around the churches and castle, guided tours are bookable through the tourism office.
