Overview

About the property

House in Fuente Del Conde, Nr Lake Iznajar, Cordoba Region Andalucia Spain - Village Location With Far Reaching Views of Olive Groves and Ideal for Exploring the Cultural Cities

Casa Hiraeth has been sympathetically and beautifully renovated and expanded over the past few years, giving it all the modern conveniences that you would expect. Casa Hiraeth is built around a traditional inner courtyard, which gets the morning sun, making it an ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Off the courtyard is a stunning and completely private swimming pool and multiple terraces with uninterrupted views over the hills, perfect for watching the glorious sunsets. One of the terraces is equipped with a relaxing outdoor lounge seating area with fireplace, kitchenette, BBQ and dining area, perfect for evening al fresco dining. Another terrace has a Moroccan style covered seating area, ideal for secluded and shaded outdoor dining. Both patios are equipped for year round use with lighting, fires, Wi-Fi and power.

The variety of terraces allow for ease of experiencing the typically Spanish outdoor-living lifestyle. The house also benefits from a large open-plan kitchen-dinner with snug/lounge area and wood burner for the cooler months and beautiful distant views of the undulating countryside. There is also a comfortable lounge with wood burner for cosy winter evenings. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with large ensuite, which overlooks the rolling hills and olive groves. There are two other smaller bedrooms, one double and one twin, which both share a family shower room. All bedrooms come equipped with air-conditioning for those warm summer nights.

Additional facilities include an office area with WiFi, PC & printer, which enables the ability to work remotely. Throughout Casa Hiraeth, there is an abundance of traditional Andalucian characteristics, which add to its authentic and individual charm, along with those necessary modern trappings that we all need. There is a secure driveway and parking area sufficient for two vehicles.

About Rachael & Alun Parry

We both mainly work in the UK and as our jobs are mainly computer based, we are lucky that when time allows, we can escape the hustle and bustle of city living and escape to our holiday home retreat, working from our office area in Casa Hiraeth.

We also have three teenage daughters, who also thoroughly enjoy the activities available in the surrounding area, which includes cycling, strolling through olive groves, kayaking on Lake Iznajar, and even skiing in the Sierra Nevada’s mountains during winter months.

Rachael & Alun Parry purchased this house in 2013

Why Rachael & Alun Parry chose La Subbetica

We searched a long time and were delight to find such a beautiful traditional Spanish house in this ideal location with stunning views.

Casa Hireath is unique because it is on the edge of the very friendly village called Fuente Del Conde, which has a supermarket perfect for freshly baked bread in the mornings and Antonio’s bar and restaurant, which serves fabulous Andalusian cuisine.

The village is set within the undulating countryside with views of olive groves and close to the Moorish town of Iznajar with its stunning lake, beach, beach bar/restaurant and water sports facilities. Being centrally located, we all enjoy day trips visiting the historical and cultural cities of Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Malaga and the Costa del Sol. Fast rail links even make a trip to Madrid possible!

What makes this house unique

Casa Hireath being a traditional Spanish house is built on the hillside, so has a variety of terraces with views of the rolling hills, perfect for a relaxing drink and watching the fabulous sunsets. My favourite spot is the top terrace in the early morning sun with a cup of tea enjoying the glorious views.

There is also a private internal courtyard, ideal for alfresco breakfasts. Family breakfasts can also be enjoyed in the large open plan kitchen-diner overlooking the olive groves, and with the shuttered windows wide open so benefiting from the cooling breeze.

The stunning large swimming pool is perfect for a cooling dip, and with it being lit we also enjoy midnight swims!

In the evenings or winter nights the cosy lounge with wood burner is a great place to relax with the whole family

Casa Hiraeth

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely but all too brief stay at Casa Hiraeth in August this year. It gave us a chance to hang out as a family with our three teenage sons, relax by the pool and eat, chat and chill on one of the many terraces. Rachael and Alun's Andalucian home is delightfully Spanish and very stylish with everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. It is probably the best equipped villa we have stayed in over the years. It is definitely a home from home. A big thumbs up from me for the selection of coffee machines! The village is lovely and peaceful and has a little supermarket and local restaurant a few minutes from the house. It is an easy drive to Granada from here too and well worth the visit. I wish we had stayed longer.

The perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Hiraeth is the perfect holiday destination. It has everything you could wish for. The villa itself is a great blend of traditional village house and modern comforts. If travelling in July or August, you'll be pleased to find the very effective air conditioning in the bedrooms. The pool is a great size and the lack of chlorine a real bonus - and totally private. The terraces are the highlight, the only downside is choosing which one to relax on. The top terrace has amazing views over the olive groves, and many an evening was spend cooking up feasts on the BBQ whilst sipping Cava and watching the sun set over the mountains. The location is also perfect. The village has a fantastic restaurant (less than a minute walk up the road) and a very handy supermarket for the daily breakfast order of chocolate croissants and bread. Also ideally located for day trips to Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, and Ronda, and potentially to Sevilla (about 2 hours drive). Waterparks and the sea are about an hour away, although you have a great beech on the lake which is only 15 mins away, where you can hire kayaks and pedalos. The area is very quiet, and very few tourists, so a great opportunity to experience the real Andalucía . Communication with the owners and their local representatives was excellent. Not recommended for small children, due to the steep steps and rambling nature of the house (ads to the charm) but highly recommended for everyone else.

Beautiful villa in idealic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had hoped it would be. Rachael and Alun answered all our e-mails and queries immediately and gave us a very detailed and informative guide of how things work in the villa and where to visit and where to eat etc. We also got a phone call from Alun the week before our holiday to make sure we had no queries or anything. This was a lovely personal touch.

During our stay we experienced temperatures of 48 to 50 degrees and we felt the villa would have benefited with air conditioning throughout and not just the bedrooms, however, this is probably unusual for those temperatures and the units may well have detracted from the lovely spanish feel of the property. The kitchen was one of the best equipped kitchens we have had in a holiday home too but too hot to cook in it most evenings, we were frequent visitors to the local bar and Antonio was always welcoming.

The villa was immaculate and the furnishings etc were second to none. We made good use of all the terraces and the pool was always a welcome sight on our return from our travels and the local lake at Iznajar.

It was a lovely, relaxing and peaceful holiday. Just what we were looking for.

Well equipped village home for a restful break

  • 5 of 5

This is a generously equipped and attractively furnished holiday home located in a small and quiet village easily reached from Malaga. The property surprises with its choice of living spaces, and the attractive terraces on multiple levels mean there's always a spot to relax and enjoy the view. In early October the temperature was very pleasant in the autumn sunshine, although the pool was a bit on the fresh side when first entering! Owners Rachael and Alun, were extremely helpful, as were their local agents, and were very responsive to our questions before the holiday. We would recommend this property as a great base to explore this attractive part of southern Spain, or just to chill out and enjoy the sun and the bar/restaurant just down the road. Just one small thing to note -- there are some steep steps which lead to the upper terrace, which elderly or less mobile visitors may find tricky to negotiate.

A beautiful home in a sleepy village

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need for a relaxing break. It's located in a small friendly mountain village with easy access by car. The house has been maintained to a high standard and has some beautiful features inside and out. The facilities and equipment are 5* and wouldn't hesitate to book again in the future.

Stunning property, beautifully maintained.

  • 5 of 5

A beautifull villa in a stunning location.

Very comfortabale and you can tell that this is not just a holiday let but someones home that they make plenty of use of.

6 of us stayed, parents and grown up sons with partners, lots of room inside and out for us all to have are own space when needed.

So many areas to relax along with the well maintained pool.

The gas BBQ was well used on the top level of the villa, stunning sunset views as you eat and drink into the night

A very short walk to the local bar/restaurant that was of a very high standard, especially considering the village is quite remote.

Local agents were very helpful and easy to contact.

The steps could be a problem if you have very young children but this is a minor point.

Would recommend to everyone we know and have no hesitation in returning.
