We call our properties "Lake of Dreams" and if you choose to stay here we think you'll understand why! The Farmhouse, sleeping nine people and The Cottage sleeping four, can be rented individually or together. They are set in idyllic countryside overlooking olive groves and mountains towards the moorish village of Iznajar and the largest lake in Andalucia. If you can tear yourself away there you are convenient to all the attractions Andalucia has to offer - historic cities, countryside and sports - or just chill out in comfort by the pool!
