We stayed here 3 nights and out of the other two places we stayed while in Andalusia this was our favourite for views and outside space. the casa is just outside the town of Iznajar just off a small road in an enviable position overlooking part of the lake, and hills covered with olive trees. There is a swimming pool,... More

However, at nearly 100€ a night it was expensive in comparison with other hotels we stayed at, which were 4* and in the centre of the... More

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.

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
