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

Set right in the heart of Andalucia, on a rich, fertile plain, Antequera is a fantastic town, known as the ‘crossroads of Andalucia’. There is an incredible amount of history in Antequera, unrivalled by any other town in Spain. The medieval spires dominate the skyline, but there are treasures from every age all the way back to the Bronze Age to be found within Antequera. There are some wonderful outdoor sports to be enjoyed from a holiday rental property in Antequera too, with many special walks and rides in the surrounding countryside, especially up to the huge crag known as La Pena de los Enamorados or Lover’s Leap, which stands 880m above the town.

Things to do in Antequera, Spain

There is a vast amount to discover and enjoy simply wandering the streets of Antequera. Only on Fridays are the streets awash with people, with the arrival of the lively weekly market. The rest of the week sees streets staying very quiet, perfect for stress free exploration. You will regularly catch a glimpse of the stunning views that surround the town as you walk, especially from the top of the roman Arco de los Gigantes (Giants Arch). However, it is the ornate Arab Castle which dominates the town. There is so much to see from an Antequera property that a trip to the Municipal Museum may be the best starting point, allowing you to get an idea of the immense history of Antequera before trying to piece it together for yourself. The most famous Dolmen Caves in Europe are also found in Antequera, dating back to 2,500 BC, and open to the public.

The country surrounding Antequera is an absolute delight to explore. Taking an Antequera country property allows you to enjoy the peace and beauty of the best of Andalucian nature without distraction, whether you decide to explore on foot, horse back, bicycle or by car. The forty minute drive to the Fuente de Piedra lakes are well worth it, especially if the flamingos are adding their iconic flash of pink to the scenery at the time of your visit.

The Antequera Holy Week is one of the finest times to be staying in an Antequera country property. The whole town celebrates with traditional ceremonies, music and food, in a festival dating back to Baroque times. The Spring Feria and Real Feria, in May and August respectively, attract visitors to Antequera from many miles, with huge displays or traditional culture, including bull fighting.

Gorgeous place away from it all, run by lovely people

5 of 5
Just stayed here with my husband and two children, aged 11 and 7. We loved it! Made to feel so welcome by José Maria, Juan and Varsena. The house was spacious, and spotlessly clean with everything you need for a relaxing break away from it all. Beautiful pools, plus tennis and even a little go on a beautiful horse. We visited Antequera, the nearby Wolf Park, and Ronda and could have seen much more if we had been able to tear ourselves away from just relaxing in the peace and quiet. The farm is a few km down a stony road, but it's totally worth it when you arrive at this lovely oasis in the olive groves.

REAL SPAIN

5 of 5
Our very first holiday abroad as a family (2 adults & 2 boys 16 & 18) was made all the more memorable by our choice to stay at Casa Levana. This traditional Spanish house with its typical country style layout and rural setting amid the hills and acres of olive groves felt like we were totally immersed in unspoilt Andalusia, away from the cosmopolitan business of the costas (might not suit families with very small children given steepness of some of the internal stairs) Whilst we were within striking distance of the coast and other big towns, we always had the tranquil oasis of Casa Levana and its beautiful courtyard to escape to. We especially enjoyed the nearby lakes for swimming and eating out in nearby La Roda Andalusia. Best of all were the mornings and evenings around the house in the courtyard and patios. Anne was very helpful with useful advice leading up to our stay and we loved reading about her story in acquiring the house. If you want the real deal but still be close enough to big towns like Antequera (rental car vital) then we would heartily recommend Casa Levanna to you. Jim & Janice
