About Roger Bushnell

Ex Hoteliers from Scotland with a knowledge of the area and of guests concerns and comfort, based on what we would like or expect whilst on holiday

Roger Bushnell purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Roger Bushnell chose Antequera (Costa del Sol)

Away from the coast with a relaxing life style, yet offering good access to the delights of Granada, Malaga, Cordoba and all that these cities have to offer, with the town of Antequera some 30 minutes away with El Torcal and the Dolmens

What makes this apartment unique

Friendly locals this is the real Spain where just about everybody has time to pass the time of day, away from the motorways, although each motorway is only 20km. distant. No pollution and no industry just a tranquil way of life set amidst the olive groves. A visit to the olive factory may be booked from October to March, a translator will be extra, an interesting visit to show just how detailed the production and care of Olive Oil is. An area with no pollution from cars or factories with big sky and great stars

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Elisabeth, Roger and Tapley,

>> As we left early this morning we didn't have a chance to say personally a very big THANK YOU for your wonderful hospitality during our stay at the Casita. We had a great time and enjoyed La Parrilla and its surroundings. We will remember fondly our stay and Mario especially the excellent whiskey tasting. We definitely will recommend your place.

>> All the best to you and who knows maybe we one day will book into your B&B in Sweden.

>> Kind regards Carmen & Mario

an idyllic get away with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting the property for a much needed break away from from it all we were thrilled with our choice, set in the village of la parrilla amidst olive groves with a great terrace for catching the rays the property is inland however there's a stunning lake a short drive away where you can have a meal and take in the stunning views.

Roger and Elizabeth were unobtrusive, charming hosts who were on hand to offer anything we required, we travelled with out 11 year old daughter who loved the pool, we were lucky enough to have sole use for the duration of our stay and were there Til late every evening.

Roger was very helpful and provided us with directions from the airport, we hired a car and Roger gave us information about the supermarket along the way where we picked up groceries.

on arrival we were thrilled to have been provided with provisions to make a drink and a sandwich!!! lovely touch Roger and Elizabeth

I would recommend this property to anyone who's looking to see the real spain and get away from it all!!!!!

thanks again Roger and Elizabeth and we will see you again soon

Owner's Response: From the original enquiry to the day of departure it was a joy to deal with Trudy and her delightful family, she knew what she wanted and knew what to expect upon arrival. We never try to upsell our offering and are delighted that we met and exceeded the expectations for a well deserved break here in rural Andalucia. This is how we try to operate our two lettings that we were fortunate to find. Haste ye back, Roger, Elizabeth & Tetley

Tranquil experience

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome in La Parrilla, a small ,but very comfortable apartment with a lovely terrace overlooking thousands & thousands of olive trees. We had arrived in what is probably the biggest olive oil production area in Europe, A PLEASANT, surprise.

Roger was a very good guide to the area ,with excellent information provided in our apartment . MUST SEE things in the region. He is also an excellent cook, providing and cooking evening meals, Spanish & Traditional cuisine , our meal was delightful, !!!

The accommodation is well located to visit many Iconic cities as well as

lovely environmental sites nearby.

we would highly recommend a short break in this unique location.

Thank you Roger& Elizabeth for our most enjoyable visit.

Owner's Response: A delightful couple on a World tour and we met them on the Spanish leg of their experience. The apartment was left in an excellent state and apart from laundry etc. was left in ready to let condition. Welcome to return at any time in the future.

"Very nice place, perfect for discovering the rural Andalusian life (it's wonderful to wake up surrounded by birds singing) and also all the classical turistic spots in the area (Seville, Cordoba, Granada). Roger and Elisabeth gave us a warm welcome and helped us with everything we needed."

  • 5 of 5

Ma famille et moi même avons passé trois merveilleuses semaines en Andalousie et avons été extraordinairement bien accueilli par les propriétaires de la location que nous remercions encore à travers notre message. Tout est réuni pour rendre le séjour des locataires exceptionnel !!! La location est très bien située et nous avons pu sans problèmes visiter les villes de Cordoue, Grenade, Malaga, Ronda et Séville. Rien ne manque dans la location et je tiens à souligner l'extrême gentillesse des propriétaires et la propreté des lieux. En résumé, je recommande vivement cette location qui permet à la fois en alternance visites culturelles pour pouvoir connaître l'Andalousie avec beaucoup de facilité et aussi repos et jeux au bord de la piscine dont la vue sur les oliviers est magnifique !!!
