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.

If you are looking for an amazing location in andalusia you definitely have to go to casa el olivar in Iznajar. The first time we went we couldn't believe our eyes. The view from the terrace on the swimming pool and the lake is breath taking. But of course not only the view is nice, also the rooms, the breakfast... More

Rooms were well equiped and spatious enough, the inifinity pool was well maintained. Breakfast was royal and delicious. This spot is the perfect... More

Belgian run El Olivar is a quiet heaven in the dry backdrops of Malaga in Andalusia. Perfectly located in the triangle between Malaga, Granada en Cordoba it is a great spot to start your 'Andalusian discovery tour' with. The property is well build, set in olive groves as far as your eye can reach. The rooms are simple but clean... More

We had a wonderful week and a half in late October staying at the Casa Rural El Olivar. The BnB was remote and located in the olive groves with a great view of beautiful Lake Iznajar. Breakfast was the typical Andalucian breakfast of jamons, bread, delicious olive oil, cheese, fruits, eggs, and cereals. It was a great way to start... More

We spent a superb week in their casitas (self contained), very happy with the experience, friendly hosts, clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated, fantastic pool overlooking the lake. Iznajar itself is not much but it is nice to look at when you drive in, for shops we found the Mercadona supermarket @ 10km in Rute very good. Perfect for a... More
