I am early retired Interior Designer/Decorator from the Wirral, Merseyside, England, UK.
I was born and raised in the city of Liverpool and proud of being a Scouser (a Liverpudlian) and to see the many changes in the city after many years of little investment.
Recent investment into the city over the past 20/30 years has again put Liverpool on the map with every major hotel group opening new hotels in Liverpool and the city was awarded the city of Culture in 2008 bringing visitors into the city from all over the world.
My wife and I had our own Interior Design retail business in the UK for over 30 years with a loyal clientele that we had built up through giving a first class service and in 2004 we decided to sell our business and home to move to the beautiful area of Lake Iznajar, Cordoba,
Thomas Bodell purchased this house in 2001
When we first arrived at the property we knew we had found what we had been looking for and that we had a big project ahead of us due to the condition of the property so with our experience in business we set to it and now have a property that we are proud of.
The area of Iznajar is of outstanding beauty with its rolling olive groves and mountains not forgetting the lake.The local people are fabulous and take every day as it comes and when it is fiesta time then everyone lets their hair down and enjoy themselves.
Travelling around this area is a joy as you don't have the sort of traffic that most of us are accustomed to back home bumper to bumper.
Anyway I could write a book about the area and its customs. So you decide when you get here for yourself.
Finca Brigadoon is situated on the side of a mountain above the village of Los Juncares which protects the property in the winter time although we don't have bad winters. The property enjoys sun all day long due its location being south facing and it is so easy to access due to the roads in this area. There are plenty of lanes to walk and bird watch as well as seeing wild flowers etc. The town of Rute where we do most of our shopping is a pleasant drive and takes about 15 minutes. Iznajar town is 10 Minutes and when in the town exploring why not pay a visit to the castle and church both recently been completely restored.
A new indoor sports center with fully equipped gym of which you can use for a small fee.
Being here is such a joy and hope that you will enjoy your visit to the area.
The town of Iznajar is situated high up on the lake with its ancient castle, churches, shops and bars. The lake offers water sports such as kayaks , sailing, pedalos angling, camping and excellent bars/restaurants around the lake. The lake and town is a 10 minute drive from the property. Excellent shopping facilities in Rute a 15 minute drive. Rute also being famous for its Hams, Chocolates, Anise and other Liqueurs a visit to the museums/factories is a must for tasting and buying that special gift. Larger towns of Lucena and Antequera 30/40 minutes drive for shopping malls, hypermarkets, cinemas. Lucena and Antequera have outdoor markets on Tuesday and Wednesday also Antequera has an excellent 18 hole golf course. There is a well stocked shop and bar in the village of La Celada 5 minutes drive from the property. Visit the historic cities of Cordoba, Granada and Seville not forgetting Malaga with it architecture, museums, art galleries and shopping. Cordoba with its world famous Moorish Mezquita ( Cathedral ), palaces and the old Jewish quarter. Granada with its famous Alhambra Palace and Gardens is also a must to visit whilst on holiday in this area. *Please note for entrance to the Alhambra Palace and Gardens that tickets can be bought online so it is best to plan this visit into your holiday and get your tickets well in advance. Seville with its mighty cathedral and many other places of interest is also well worth a visit and is a 2 hour journey by car from Iznajar.
Iznajar Lake has a beach of fine sand which is used by the locals and tourist throughout the year and is only 10 minutes drive from the property.The beaches of Malaga, Costa Del Sol is approximately 80kms and takes about 1 hour drive from the property adding anything between 15 to 30 minutes to beaches such as La Colina, this is our own favorite beach which is by Torremolinos then there are the beaches of Benalmadena and Fuengirola. All these beaches are recommended by us.
