There are few spots inland in Andalusia that boast a view over a large expanse of water. This delightful cottage is located in an elevated position looking out over the lake at Zahara and beyond to the castle atop the hill at Zahara.

The cottage is simply laid out on two floors with terraces around three sides with shady spots for eating, reading or just relaxing. There are two barbecues, a large one for the whole family and a small one suitable for smaller snacks. In front of the house there is an old threshing circle made up of stones, where the best view is to be had of the lake below. To the left is a lovely pool area with plenty of outdoor furniture, sunbeds and table and chairs.

Inside, there is a sitting room/dining room with sofas, chairs and dining table. An open fire is available for the cooler months, wood can be ordered from the owners at 7 € per day. A television with Spanish channels, CD player and cassette are also provided. The kitchen with adjoining laundry room is a generous size and is equipped with hob, oven, fridge/freezer and microwave and is tiled throughout.
