Casa con guiño: charming holiday home in the heart of Andalucia
Casa con guiño is an old cortijo (farmhouse) that we (Sjaklien Euwals and Jan Katuin) have renovated. We offer our light, airy, spacious apartment for rent as a holiday home whilst we live in the remainder of the house so we can offer you help and advice, should you need it. Casa con guiño, 'house with a wink' (at life!), is situated in the heart of Andalusia, just one hour's drive from Granada airport and 80 minutes from Málaga airport.
The holiday home (85m² + 80m² terrace) is fully equipped for 1-4 persons.
Downstairs: hall, living-/diningroom with kitchen part, bathroom and toilet. Upstairs: 2 bedrooms.
On the private, secluded terrace is a lounge pool with submerged seats (200 x 200 cm and 120 cm deep), for your exclusive use where you can sit in the water and relax, sipping from your glass of wine or just soaking up the sun.
The holiday home has a stunning view over the beautiful "Los Agrazales" valley and we have created a 'mirador' on the terrace, where you can sit and view the valley and dream away in the seemingly endless landscape.
All the famous cities like Granada, Córdoba, Jaén and Málaga can be visited in a one hour and 15 minutes drive by car. Near to the house you can find the beautiful lake of Iznájar and the pretty little pueblos blancos of Iznájar, Rute, Algarinejo, Priego de Córdoba and Montefrio. You can discover the unknown Spanish Andalucian villages, but also walk along fantastic olive groves and there is a possibility for mountain biking. Do you like geocaching? There are lot of treasures hidden around the lake of Iznájar.
The village swimming pool (open in July and August) and restaurants/bars of Fuentes de Cesna are a 5 minute drive from casa con guiño with the villages of Algarinejo and Iznájar a 15 minute drive.
Located in the still largely undiscovered Andalucian inland, in the heart of Andalucia bordering the provinces of Granada, Córdoba and Málaga. The land here is known for its hundreds of thousands of olive trees and beautiful pueblos blancos (white villages), many with pre-historic and Roman ruins, medieval churches and castles.

from Málaga Airport in about 80 minutes drive to Fuentes de Cesna and casa con guiño
From Málaga Airport follow the signs for ‘Málaga, Motril, Sevilla, Granada’. When the road (E15/A7) splits, take exit 241, direction ‘Granada, Seville, Córdoba (A45). After about 40 km on this road take exit 114 Granada (A92M).
Then take exit 1 (Fuente Camacho, Salinas, Villanueva de Tapia, A333), in terms of numbering an illogical sequence. So pay attention, and it is a short exit with a sharp bend. Then turn left, drive under the viaduct, the road that makes a sharp right (to Seville) and drive towards Villanueva de Tapia.
After about 2 km there is a T-junction (A333), turn left towards ‘Iznájar, Rute’. Attention, after about 100 meters there is a big speed bump. Follow the road towards Iznájar (after a few sharp turns you will see on the righ side the village upon a hill across the lake.
Cross the bridge, don’t take the first right into Iznájar, but follow the road around the mountain. You have passed Restaurante Casa Juani (on the left side of the road), and immediately before the next bridge, turn right, direction Algarinejo, Fuentes the Cesna.
You are now in the village of Iznájar, keep following the road. After a left turn you will pass a small shopping gallery (on your left), then you will come to a very small square (with a lamppost in the middle). Drive left around the lamppost along the narrow street with the speed sign ‘20 km’.
Follow the steep road that goes along (the right of the road) a long row of new white houses (Pueblo Blanco Iznájar). After this part of the village, on top of the road, there is a left turn, but you follow the road straight ahead.
The road runs first past white houses and progresses through the mountains. Continue on that road. After approximately 10 minutes you will reach a T-junction with the signs' tiro de campo’ and ‘Cooperativa’ who both point to the right. Here turn left and continue driving.
You will again pass a few houses and after about 3 minutes there is another T-junction with a sign tot Fuentes de Cesna (that points to the right) and Algarinejo to the left.
Turn left and follow the road towards Algarinejo the GR 5400. Between the kilometer markers 16 and 17 on the right of the road there there is a bus stop, a little open white house containing mailboxes, under a large tree. Opposite is a sandy road, at the left from the road. Turn left to the sandy road.
After 300 meters on the sandy road there is an indistinct T-junction with a new build home (on the left side of the road) with the name ‘David y Angel’. Turn left, it appears that you drive onto the yard of the house, but it is not, just follow the path. You will pass a white house on your left (La Charneca), the road bends to the right and after 100 meters on the right go to casa con guiño.
If you cannot find our place, call us - (0034) 608 26 55 09 - and we will guide you further, or we pick you up if necessary. Upon arrival in the dark for example you can call us the best when you approach Iznájar. Wait at Restaurante Casa Juani (on the left side of the road after you have crossed the bridge over the lake) and we will pick you up over there. It takes about 10 minutes before we have reached you.
Our coordinates according to Google Earth: 37°17'31.31"N 4°13'58.44"W
If you use a GPS, don’t type ‘Fuentes de Cesna’, because the GPS will lead you through Loja and that is a route far much longer than our description. So type ‘Iznájar', go to Iznájar and when you have crossed the bridge over the beautiful lake just follow our descriptions to casa con guiño.
