About Richard Barber

Like most self employed people we had busy working and stressful lives and wanted a place to get away to unwind,after a two year search we discounted the crowded coastal area, preferring the quite scenic area of inland Andalusia.

Real Spain

The village - a time warp small local shops selling fruit veg, butchers,hardware etc the village square a meeting point with people of all ages chatting

We purchased the house from a Spanish family who had lived there for generations - breeding pigs, chickens growing vegetables . The cottage ( Finca ) with three feet thick walls built in the time honoured Spanish method was extend as the family grew - in the 60s the modern villa was added.

We had numerous long weekends and family holidays.

As the children and grandchildren have grown up they now have other aspirations.

14 years on will never tire and continue to return.

Richard Barber purchased this villa in 2000

Why Richard Barber chose Iznájar

Life is hectic for most people our location is quite and relaxing no noise from adjoining properties or overlooked - we have had guests who intended sightseeing

and decided not to bother just unwind with a book in the sun, glass of wine and a swim to cool down

Owner's Response: Sorry about the wi-fi I was at the villa the previous week then it was working fine turns out the supplier of the service sold the business neither they or Movistar the purchaser had informed us and the service just ceased. This happened just as you arrived. Pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday

Great place for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa in a quiet location but with close local amenities in Iznijar. Seville, Granada and Cordoba all within driving distance for trips out. Pool and facilities all very good. Booking process, property management and communication the best we have experienced with Homeaway.

Pool mit Wespen geteilt

  • 3 of 5

Die Unterkunft war wie beschrieben eingerichtet, alles sauber und ordentlich. Leider mussten wir uns den Pool mit Wespen teilen, was zu einer eingeschränkten Nutzung führte. Die Entfernung zum See mit 5 Minuten war leider nicht korrekt angegeben.

Owner's Response: Hallo, danke für dein Rating und es tut mir leid, dass du mit der Ankunft der Wespen nicht zufrieden warst. Ich blieb in der Villa zwei Tage, seit du gegangen bist und verbrachte eine Woche dort vor den Nexts Gästen, ich hatte bemerkt, dass die Wespen auf dem Wasser am Pool am späten Nachmittag schwimmen Ich hatte ein Wasserleck aus der Hütte Wasserversorgung am Samstag und bemerkte, dass sie dort auch versammelt. Ich habe festgestellt, dass durch die extreme Hitze mit ihrem natürlichen Wasserversorgung der Strom am Boot des Gartens ausgetrocknet wurde, segten sie das nächste Wasser aus Ich hatte ein Wasserleck aus der Hütte Wasserversorgung am Samstag und bemerkte, dass sie dort auch versammelt. Ich habe festgestellt, dass durch die extreme Hitze mit ihrem natürlichen Wasserversorgung der Strom am Boot des Gartens ausgetrocknet wurde, segten sie das nächste Wasser aus Die Temperatur ist jetzt wieder auf die normalen 34 Grad und es gibt keine Wespen. Mit Reagieren die Fahrzeit zum See, ich war figurativ gesprochen "nur eine fünfminütige Fahrt zum See" früher in der Anzeige es sagt 4.5klm zum See und Dorf von Iznajar Ihr Recht Ich brauche Änderung dies zu 15 Minuten in Wirklichkeit thats was es braucht. Ich musste Google übersetzen und hoffe, dass es in der Übersetzung nichts verloren hat.

Notre havre de paix

  • 4 of 5

Nous y avons passé 6 jours pendant notre séjour en Andalousie. Nous avions la maison, l'espace et la piscine à nous seul. Quel bonheur de se baigner après une grande journée de visite. Nos dîners mémorables sur charbon de bois... mmmm. Merci à Kath pour son bel accueil et ses quelques victuailles apportées, bien apprécié. Un beau havre de paix à une vingtaine de minutes du village. Dépaysement assuré!
