We have stayed in many houses with views in Europe over the years, but this is undoubtedly the best. The house is on a very small plot but the view makes it feel vast. Dont be fooled by the pool pictures, it is really just a puddle with a Jacuzzi (which runs for just 30 seconds before you have to get out and switch it back on!) - not for swimming. Pool lights didnt work. We were here for Christmas so it was too cold anyway, although we tried it! The sea in Scotland is warmer. House is very elegantly decorated and we only had one problem and that was with the heating which if you come at any other time will not be an issue. The owner had not bothered to get the place opened up before we arrived, despite our requests and it took 3 days to warm it up - at over 600m it gets cold as soon as the sun disappears around 4pm and stays cold until 11am. Wood for the fire was stored outside (even though we were told it was all under cover) in bags and the week before they had had torrential rains so we had to collect our own - something we did on our walks so no real hassle but certainly a lack of thought on his part. Local village is friendly and there is very easy access to Malaga (the market is a must), Granada etc . Do book the Alhambra before you go - we assumed that it would be less busy at Christmas but it was fully booked when we got there - their website is a mess. Granada itself is still well worth a visit. All in all we had a lovely time despite the lack of help and the view alone was the worth booking.

Location is also excellent both for Antequera itself and to visit the region. We rented a car in Malaga airport and drove to Antequera. Carmen met us in the town centre when we arrived and we had no problem driving to the flat, parking for a short time just in front of the building, unloading our luggage and then driving to the garage to leave the car. Although some of the roads are narrow in the town centre, the traffic in Antequera was very manageable even when you are not used to driving on the right. Therefore driving near the flat was not a problem.

Brilliant communication and instructions from Mike from the outset. Clear instructions on how to find the house. Everything in the house to make our stay extremely comfortable and we all loved the accommodation. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.
