Homely delight – a unique experience at a slower pace
Bed & Breakfast Finca Las Encinas is a family-run, gourmet B&B near Iznájar. It is charming and rustic; the setting is idyllic. We dedicate to introduce you to a slow lifestyle with a genuinely warm welcome, highly personalised services, and an ultimate culinary experience. Also on offer is a cooking course with an owner/chef Clive.
We discovered a neglected 200-year-old farmhouse in an unspoilt part of Andalusia in 2001 and restored carefully and lovingly over 3 years. Keeping much of the original rustic characters, we worked hard to set up a rural guesthouse from scratch. This B&B is our labour of love!
Standing on a vast private land full of protected oaks (encinas in Spanish), ancient olive trees and ecologically grown vegetable gardens, Finca Las Encinas is an ideal place to stay for a total relaxation or as a base to explore this off the beaten track destination. It is situated in a tranquil hamlet tucked away on the edge of stunning Sierra Subbética Natural Park. It is also close to a small Moorish village Iznájar and the largest lake in Andalusia, yet the access to / from Málaga, Granada and Córdoba to enjoy the cultural or historical wealth of this fascinating part of Spain, is painless.
Outside, there is an upper terrace overlooking an inviting pool and the surrounding olive grove, perfect place for outdoor dining. Down a few steps, you will find an area to unwind – hammocks to day-dream, tables and chairs to read and sun loungers to snooze. At night, it is a perfect spot to watch the starry sky.
There are only 4 guest rooms – 3 rooms in the main farmhouse through an old antique door, and the annex suite with private entrance next to it, all en-suite. They are cosy, simple and have characterful touches, with delightful original thick stone walls. A wood burning stove in the cold winter months is very comforting.
An intimate and friendly ambience at B&B Finca Las Encinas will let you truly slow down, and relish the good company of other like-minded visitors at our farmhouse in the heart of Andalucia. Simply unique. Simply delicious. We look forward to your visit soon!
