We landed at Malaga airport and it only took and hour to get to the villa. When we arrived, we were met with what looked like a traditional Spanish rural house, but once inside we found a stylish and modern decor with everything we could want. The kitchen had every appliance you could ask for and a huge American styled fridge so we could pack it up with everything we needed. The closest large supermarket is like a 15 minute drive away, and there are smaller ones in the nearby town of Iznajar...and we only needed to go a couple of times during our stay. There are also a lot of places to eat within 20 minutes of the villa. My favorite was down by the beach on the lake which is like a 7 minute drive away.
The pool is good size and they had floaties we could use and float around on while working on our tans. The place really does take advantage of the sun...with a sun terrace that has its own lounge and sail shade, sun lounges and chairs by the pool and even sun lounges in the garden. There is also a table outside shaded by the sun terrace were we ate most times.
Even though there was six of us there, the bedrooms are well spaced out and away from each other, so there was plenty of privacy...one of the bedrooms has its own lounge (my sister grabbed that room!) With three bathrooms, two of the bedrooms had ensuites, so there was no waiting LOL.
The house is really well located for exploring Andalusia...we did a day trip to Seville, and went to Granada to the Alhambra Palace. We also went for a beach day in Malaga, which had a lot of hustle and bustle, so when we came back to the Villa it was nice to get back to the peace and relaxing vibe. A car is essential to get the most of it staying here. The close by town of Iznajar is also a beautiful old Spanish town with a 800 year old Fort.
Thank you to Brent, the owner,who gave us plenty of tips on what to see and do, and for sharing his beautiful home with us. I highly recommend it!
