Make a holiday rental property or holiday villa in Antequera, Spain your home away from home

Antequera, ‘the crossroads of Andalucia’, is a charming whitewashed Andalucian town whose history can be tracked as you pass through the wonderful array of monuments which surround the area. The town is set in simply idyllic surroundings, with the blinding white washed walls shining between the tall towers which erupt from the yellow sea of sunflowers, signifying your arrival in Antequera.

Things to do on holiday in Antequera, Spain

Those with even a passing interest in the history and culture of Andalucia will be thrilled with the number of historic attractions which surround the village. During your stay in Antequera accommodation you can easily investigate Bronze Age burial mounds, ancient dolmens, Gothic churches, renaissance monuments, Roman baths and the large Moorish castle which stands proudly above the town. The dolmens at Cueva de la Malaga are the largest example of an ancient mass tomb in the whole of Andalucia.

At certain times of the year, this relatively peaceful town erupts into life. The annual fair takes place during the third week of August, and is a particularly special time to be staying in Antequera accommodation. The agricultural fair in June and the Semana Santa processions during Easter are great fun too.

When you take an Antequera holiday rental, there are a few spots which are really worth seeing. The stunning lunar landscape of the Sierra of El Torcal has to bee seen to be believed, and is a great destination for walking holidays, whilst the Fuente de Piedra is one of the finest places to see flamingos in Spain. Although the dolmen caves and landscape of El Torcal are the most famous attractions in Antequera, the Antequera Lobo Park wolf park is a great option for families taking an Antequera rental villa or apartment.

Places to holiday in Antequera, Spain

The town of Antequera itself is filled with magnificent little boutiques and fine restaurants to recuperate in, especially after a day walking or riding in the beautiful countryside which surrounds Antequera. Located within yards of the dolmen caves, a holiday apartment in Antequera is a great base for exploration.

The village of Villanueva de la Concepcion lies at the foot of the incredible El Torcal. The village celebrates its festivals with real passion, and if you can get Antequera accommodation during the February Carnival, the Summer Feria in mid August or the Anniversary of Villanueva’s conception on November the 3rd, it is well worth the trip.

Treasure hunters will be enchanted by the rumours of Roman treasure buried near the charming little village of Villanueva del Rosario! However, the village is a treasure in itself, providing a great rural retreat, with two fascinating Copper Age archaeological sites to see.

Weather in Antequera, Spain

Summers in Antequera are beautifully hot, with average temperatures during July and August reaching around 28°C, although mountain breezes make it feel refreshingly cool. Winters are also warm, as temperatures extremely rarely drop below 10°C.

Travel to Antequera, Spain

Malaga Airport (AGP) is under an hour from any of the holiday rental villas in Antequera. There are a huge number of flights from across the UK, provided by a large range of airlines, including many of the ‘no frills’ airlines.

Roger and Elizabeth are top of their game. Everything in the rooms are 'just so' . We were in the 2/3 bed apartment with its own terrace and access to pool area. So quiet!!!!!!!!. Roger and Elizabeth gave us a tour of their adjoining property 'Casa Limon' Vivienda Rural VTAR?MA/01351. You can enter from road level via the front door into the Kitchen Living area, or you can enter at 1st floor level via the side of the property as the property is built into the hillside, then you have separate unimpeeded access to the pool, which is kept immaculate. Roger & Elizabeth are well respected in the locality, this was clear when we walked down to the 'locals' 2 bars a 1/4mile away. Roger knows all the places to have meals and drinks at local prices not tourist prices. His knowledge is second to none.

This year we went to Finca Amorosa for a week and we could hardly have made a better choice. The villa housed us all in comfort and had everything needed for our stay. Alan and Nancy were perfect hosts; making sure we had everything we needed without intruding. We were extremely lucky with the weather and were able to sit out in the sun on the beautiful terrace. The wood burning stove in the living room kept us warm in the evening. There are good restaurants close by, from friendly village eateries to an elegant establishment up the hill for a special occasion and the village supermarket had everything we needed. You don't need to buy oranges, lemons or eggs, though, as these are all available to pick or collect on the estate. We had a great time in a beautiful part of Spain. Many thanks, Alan and Nancy.

Yes, you do need a car to make the most of the area but El Rancho is well placed to explore the fabulous Andalusian region. Although if you just want a relaxing time lounging by the pool and soaking in the hot tub then you can. Enjoyed a riding lesson on the lovely grey Havana, leaving Jeremy to enjoy the pool area - win/win. However, what made this holiday special is Jacqui and Garret themselves, nothing was too much trouble, always helpful, definitely over and above what you expect. It was like we became part of their extended family such a bonus and privilege, looking forward to returning - our first visit will not be our last.
