Situated in the Andalucian olive belt, it's a perfect base for trips out to the coast, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Cordoba, Seville, and Granada with its Alhambra Palace. Alternatively you can lounge by the pool or visit one of the local villages for a leisurely home cooked lunch and tapas or escape to any one of the terraces for some quiet 'me' time.

Interaction with guests
Nik, Jacqui, Rosie and George left the UK in 2003 to start their new life in Andalucia. Having lived around the world and stayed in the best and the worst the world had to offer, we think we know what people want from a holiday. We bought this Villa San Cristobal because we love everything about this part of Spain. The food, the people, the architecture and just about everything here that makes you feel that you are alive! We hope we have captured a small part of it for you to enjoy while you stay with us.

About the neighbourhood
Villa San Cristobel is lacated in Puerto Blanquillo or White Haven, a small hamlet nestled in the Sierra Martilla, at the heart of Granada’s olive growing region. Just an hour’s drive from the coast, airport and Granada. The nearest villages; Zagra and Ventorres de San Jose, both retain a peaceful, traditional Andalucian way of life that is quickly disappearing on the coast and in many of the well visited Pueblo Blancos or ‘White Villages’ elsewhere. None of the Bars or Restaurants will appear in the Zagat or Michelin guides, however armed with a few Spanish words and a phrase book you will be welcomed by the friendly patrons and locals. The events include feats of daring do by local men on horseback, funfairs, masks and the parading.
Getting around
The Villa looks across the valley to Iznajar lake. Just twenty minutes away, this is the ideal spot for the fishing and boating fraternity. Its beach is perfect for a spot of picnicking, sunbathing or swimming in the freshwater. Iznajar itself is the archetypal white village, perched atop a cliff with restaurants, bars and a castle. Heading north from us is the spectacularly sited town of Montefrio, just twenty five minutes away. The nearby necropolis and archaeological site makes a great walk to build up an appetite for the town’s restaurants.Priego de Cordoba is further north and is full of magnificent architecture and baroque churches. With a wide range of eateries and shops, it’s a great cultural day out.
