Immaculately presented venue from outset

5 of 5
What a fantastic setting, on the side of the montain looking for miles over Oliver plantation. 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.

Excellent stay

5 of 5
The flat itself is great. Very clean with all required amenities. We stayed with a toddler. 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.
