Description from the owner
The Hideaway is for those that wish to get away from it all, to unwind and chill out. It is a self-contained Casita on two floors attached to our own permanent residence in Spain. There is a central courtyard to the front where you enter the open plan kitchen/living/dining area through the original antique door. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom/wet-room. Stairs take you to a double bedroom with a small balcony but enormous views. There is a covered roof terrace leading off the bedroom for your alfresco dining, a sun-terrace with loungers and steps down to the 10m pool. The Casita is registered with the Andalucian Tourist Board, registra...Read more
Casita with stunning location overlooking the lake
Iznajar, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
The Casita is attached to the main house which is our permanent residence. The location is quiet and private with a few distant neighbours and our cat who is extremely friendly.
The nearest villages of Fuente del Conde and Ventoros de Balerma both have supermarkets and bars. The historic pueblo blanco, Iznajar, is perched on the edge of Lake Iznajar, surrounded by hills and olive grove. A fascinating place to explore with its ancient castle and churches, white-washed houses and steep narrow streets. There are numerous shops, a post office, banks, health centre and many excellent tapas bars which come highly recommended. Loja and Rute (both 25 minutes drive away) are much larger towns catering for all needs. Both are historic centres in their own right. This is hilly country, but if you are up to it, the walks are fantastic with the freedom to wander wherever you wish - no fenced off fields here.
The Hideaway is centrally located for visiting the historic Alhambra palace in Granada, the magnificent Mesquita in Cordaba, the sun-kissed beaches of the Costa del Sol and the colour and flamboyance of Sevilla.

One of our best holidays ever...
From the moment we turned down the bumpy rural drive up to the house and saw Ken with his wheel barrow, we knew we had found a winner. The setting was absolutely stunning. We still talk about how it is one of the best views we have ever had.
The casita is simple and perfect and indeed hidden away, as the name suggests.
The pool was lovely and we had this to ourselves for most of the time.
Our routine consisted of breakfast by the pool, a bit of sunbathing and reading, lunch in the shade of the balcony followed by a siesta, and then a beer on the balcony while preparing the evening meal.
We had several barbicues on the balcony watching the most beautiful of sunsets, sitting out until late, sipping a glass of Rioja.
We also did a couple of day trips to Granada and Cordoba, both of which were fabulous. It's great to be able to have a holiday where you can combine relaxing and a bit of sightseeing.
There is a lovely little local town near to the casita to buy provisions and we got to know the shop owners while practicing our Spanish!
Ken and Chris were the perfect hosts. If you fancied a chat or needed any advice about where to go, they were always available. But they were never intrusive and we felt as though we had the place to ourselves.
Basically everything it says it is, is true, plus more. We don't usually go back to the same place twice, but we have often talked about breaking this rule for the Hideaway.

An outstanding location with stunning views, excellent amenities
We stayed here in 2011 & had an amazingly relaxing time. The location & views are unbelievable, providing a setting for the perfect 'hideaway'. Chris & Ken are fantastic hosts with nothing being too much trouble for them.
The surrounding countryside & villages are a must see & Chris & Ken are happy to advise for days out or local places to eat.
All in all it is just a fantastic place to holiday. Highly recommended!

The apartment was eqquipped with everything you would expect and had real charcter throughout, making it a joy to come back to after visiting some of the gorgoues local towns .
Chris and Ken made us feel right at home and the welcome pack was just what we needed.
We plan on comming back and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Peaceful and relaxing Hideaway
We would highly recommend this holiday hideaway.We are well-travelled and each year we always find week tp stay at our favorite place. 2012 will be our 5th year! The location is perfect with stunning lake views which are magical as the sun sets whilst sitting on the balcony sipping wine. The accommodation is great, clean and tidy with everything you need.

Peacefullocation with Granada, Cordoba, Sierra Mountains and the coast around 1 hours drive. We have told all our friends about this hideaway.
I have stayed here many times, its a perfect location to get away from it all, with plenty of places to visit. The views are stunning, especially the sunsets over the lake. Chris and Ken are brilliant owners and nothing is too much trouble. The pool is superb and its an all round great place to stay.

The Hideaway is the perfect place to relax.
We have enjoyed staying at this beautiful spanish apartment with pool overlooking the lake several times. The accomodation is very comfortable and we always sleep very well. The landscape is stunning and we love to relax around the swimming pool and soak up the sun. The owners, Kenneth and Chris are very nice and are on hand to give you some ideas for a day out, or a great place to eat well. This is a gem in the Spanish mountains, extremely relaxing, with fantastic panoramic views that you wont want to leave!

Rest and Relaxation
From the word go Ken and Chris made us very welcome at their fabulous hideaway with nothing too much trouble; the welcome hamper had everything you could want to last you until your venture to the shops, the accommodation was delightful and of course the views were magnificent. Although the casita is attached to their permanent residence it is very private and you have access to their wonderful swimming pool. If you are looking for relaxation in beautiful surroundings with the option of travelling to interesting and historic towns and cities this is the place for you. We have stayed here three times at different times of the year.
