We first visited Iznajar in the spring of 2004, fell instantly in love with the area and, in a complete fit of madness, bought Cortija Las Arizas within 48 hours of our arrival. The countryside around Iznajar casts a strange and compelling spell on you and we have not regretted a single moment, even during the long months of building works. The result is a 6 bed roomed, whitewashed Cortija, partly renovated, but mostly re-built, perched high above the olive groves with stunning views over Lake Iznajar on one side and the mountains of La Subbetica National Park on the other.The Cortija is a haven of tranquillity - perfect for those seeking some peace and quiet after hectic lives at home, yet close to a whole range of cultural, sporting and adventure activities.

The result is a 6 bed roomed, whitewashed Cortija, partly renovated, but mostly re-built, perched high above the olive groves with stunning views over Lake Iznajar on one side and the mountains of La Subbetica National Park on the other.The Cortija is a haven of tranquillity - perfect for those seeking some peace and quiet after hectic lives at home, yet close to a whole range of cultural, sporting and adventure activities. One of the huge attractions is the ease of access. The Cortija is just under an hour’s drive from Malaga airport. Flights to Malaga are cheap and plentiful, not only from London, but also most UK regional airports and elsewhere in Europe. Car Hire options are plentiful, with probably the lowest prices in Europe, and the roads, once you leave the coast, are almost deserted. We have furnished the Cortija with traditional Spanish floor tiles, rugs, wooden beams, incredibly comfortable beds, Moroccan lamps and masses of sofas. There are hammocks in the garden, 4 different levels of seating areas on the house’s upper terraces and both loungers and padded, shaded “siesta alcoves” up by the infinity pool. If you come in the summer, there are fans to supplement the natural breeze from the lake and the mountains. If it's cooler at night, there are open fires and a wood burning stove. Cortija las Arizas is truly our second home. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/CO/128More

About the neighbourhood
Festivals - Easter is the great fesival period. Iznajar now also boasts a flower festival in early May. There are also many local fiestas throughout the year. Cycling, Mountain biking and Scooter hire. Bicycles and Scooters can be hired locally. The surrounding countryside is ideal for a gentle potter (The Via Verde or Green Route of the La Subetcia National Park follows the old railway line) or more aggressive trips on some undulating small roads and tracks. Horse and Donkey riding. There are several stables and riding schools in the area offering trips by the hour or the day. Golf. The nearest golf course is about 30 minutes away in Antequera. Drive slightly longer to the Costa de Sol and you have your choice of dozens. Skiing. The Sierra Nevada ski resort, 1.5 hours away,...
How to get there
The Cortijo is just under an hours drive from Malaga airport. Airlines from all over Europe fly to Malaga the whole year round. Car hire is cheap and plentiful via both direct bookings and agencies such as 'Holiday Autos'.
