Iznajar Village in Andalucia with a Beach and a Lake

by m3sm-Tracy, February 1, 2016

10 years ago we had read so much on the internet about this wonderful area called Iznajar we felt we had to visit it as it was so perfectly situated to access all of the wonderful cities of Andalucia we just couldn’t wait to get there and explore. Driving into the area was mesmerizing, the oceans of olive groves were just unbelievable and we knew it was the olive region of Spain but this was just incredible. What a contrast to all the other areas in Spain and Inland Andalucia we have ever visited,this was when we knew it was to be our home and then we found Casa Pino Solo 10 years ago now.

Our village is found in the Province of Cordoba and is set on a huge rock with amazing views of the Embalse De Iznajar. This lake is the largest lake in Andalucia and having its own beach is a bonus for everyone especially in the summer months.This beach is used by the holiday makers and the locals and on lovely days you can take our kayaks in the beautiful waters, hire pedalos and sail boats or just soak up the Andalucian sun.

Andalucia is one of the richest areas for history in the whole of Spain as it was occupied by the Romans and the Moors which you can find more information about this on the internet as there is a lot to read of interest for you and come to see the remains of the Moorish castle at the very top of the village with panoramic views.

One of the reasons for us moving to Spain was to experience the laid back way of life here in the ‘Real Spain’. The Spanish people are so friendly here in Iznajar and welcome everyone and absolutely love it if you try to speak a few words of their language

Another fantastic part of this region is the food. All the little bars and restaurants serve the famous tapas and also paella and you can get wonderful meals and also bottles of wine at such reasonable prices compared to the coast. Also offered is a ‘Menu Del Dia’ which is aimed for the workers, at 2pm the local bars offer a 3 course meal with a drink for around 8 euros per person. Nowadays anyone can go in and eat these meals and I have to say they are fantastic, food just keeps coming and absolutely gorgeous. You really must experience this and eating whilst the workers are gives a real sense of community.

At Casa Pino Solo we can offer so many things for you that it is really worth a visit to our wonderful area and to our wonderful home that you will definitely love and want to visit time and time again!

We continue to run our thriving self catering villa year after year and every year we upgrade and add new facilities to it just to make your holiday experience get better and better.

Do come and visit Iznajar village and we welcome you to book our family group holiday villa!
