We visited with our 3 children in August 2016 and had the most relaxing holiday. The owner arranged local car hire and he was waiting at Airport , sat Nav was in the car which made it easy to find Villa. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed. The highlight for us was the pool and spectacular view from the terrace. We ate outside each night and spent hours in the pool. A car is a must so that you can get out and about to see the beautiful Iznajar! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the days we spent there. There are sunbeds and pedlows for hire and a small kiosk to buy drinks and ice creams. We would definitely visit again.

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.

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.
