The space
Roger and I were some of the first British to buy property in this area. We wanted the "real" Spain and found it here. We fell in love with this property at first sight and have lovingly restored it. It gave us everything we were looking for - a characterful traditional spacious property with complete privacy and stunning views.

The location is perfect. Away from it all with no traffic noise and not overlooked. You have complete privacy. Yet it is accessible to the best Andalusia has to offer. We remember first looking at the stunning views over the lake to Iznajar. It was picture perfect. The panoramic view took in the valley full of olive groves leading to the edge of the lake. The whitewashed Moorish village of Iznajar seemed to float above the lake. The terraces and swimming pool are all designed to make the most of these stunning views.
However we did not forget the modern comforts! The kitchens are fully fitted with washing machine. There is free wifi access. There is a table tennis table by the pool area.We have also added comfortable chairs on the outside terrace so you can relax, sit back and enjoy the views. There is a covered inner courtyard with dining table and barbecue. This is our home, we love it and want you to experience this special place. It isa fantastic private complex with some of the best views in the area. We look forward to sharing our local knowledge to offer you a fantastic holiday

Antequera is a charming town with a historical centre. It has two UNESCO sites - the prehistoric Dolmens and El Torcal national park with fantastic limestone structures and walking trails. Priego de Cordoba is a small town with beautiful Baroque churches in the Sierra Subbetica national park.

Golf is 30 minutes away in Antequera. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is 90 minutes away and in summer is a wonderful area for walking and mountain biking. The area is a walkers paradise and the Subbetica national park has the Via Verde cycling route. Fuente de Piedra and its lake has Spain's only breeding colony of flamingoes. There are griffon vultures in the Subetica national park and lots of other species to spot. Horse riding is available nearby and the stunning scenery is perfect for painting and photography. Local festivals: festivals are throughout the year, the highlight being Semana Santo - Easter. In May in Iznajar local villages converge together at the lakeside with decorated floats and horses. In June the Feria sees locals party for three days. In the second week of September Iznajar honours its patron saint with a candlelit procession through the town.
As you can see the area can offer something to everyone. If you have any specific request just contact me and I'll try and help.

Roger and I wanted the "real" Spain and found it here. I was brought up on a farm and studied history of art and architecture. With my passion for history I wanted to be near the great historical cities of Andalusia. I am a fully qualified to teach English as a foreign language. Roger has a construction and teaching background and wanted to use his skills to restore a traditional farmhouse. He is also an accomplished amateur wildlife photographer. We both love the outdoors and take advantage of the stunning scenery here - walking,cycling, water sports and skiing. We love eating out at the local restaurants and cooking. Finally we love watching sports and films. We called our property Lake of Dreams because it fulfilled all our aspirations. This is our home and we want to share it with you. We are discreet hosts and respect your privacy.
