Three generations of our family all under one roof. The house is fully equipped, the air con was very effective in keeping us cool through the nights. The pool was a steady 28-29 degrees. The deep end is not much different from the shallow end making volleyball less about drowning than in other properties we have stayed. Miguel had recently added wifi to add to the satellite tv pool table and tennis table for things to do. Miguel and Maria are a really nice couple very friendly and helpful, we gave them much hilarity with our Spanish. There are lovely views over the hills as dusk hits the villa. The property is in a quiet location with complete privacy, which is what we like.As others have said a car is essential to stay here but everywhere is easy to get to. All in we would throughly recommend staying at this villa. Mucho gracias Miguel y Maria.

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
