You could not want for anything at Castle View. The house is in a lovely position, yes it is up a steep hill but it's worth the effort for the fabulous view. The house is lovely and cool inside, the kitchen has everything you need and more. The upper terrace has a great plunge pool, a large area for lying in the sun and a raised area that is always in the shade, when you needs a bit of respite from the midday sun. There is a new supermarket 5 minutes away, for getting supplies in. Antequera is a fantastic place, lots of great bars , restaurants and interesting history. We love it so much we have been twice (last time we stayed at Lemon Tree, which is just as lovely ) Melanie & Rupert are fab and will do anything to help. If you are looking for true taste of Andalucia not far from the airport but a world away from the Costa del Sol hurry up and get booked in.

Castle View. Your home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Castle View is simply delightful. The 2 bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned. Lounge is lovely and cool. Bathroom is one of the best you will find with a great shower. The kitchen has all the appliances the cutlery and crockery you will need. The outside areas are perfect with the upstairs area having a beautiful plunge pool and some of the most breathtaking views. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Rupert and Melanie. From meeting us just outside Antequera to ensure we did not get lost on way in or simply for advice. The house was spotlessly clean and had a very friendly and welcoming feel. Would we go back. In a heartbeat. Stunning. I would recommend the house to everyone. There are some good bars on the main street, and for something a little different the restaurant at the Bull Ring is very good. Antequera is a taste of the real Spain. The locals are so friendly.

I cannot enthuse about Castle View and Antequra enough. Amazing.

Owner's Response: Dear both, Thank you for your touching review on both Castle View and Antequera. You seemed very happy when you walked through the door - and after the introduction I left feeling good that all was as you would have wished (I caught sight of the two girls jumping up and down which brought a smile!). We are very pleased that you caught the spirit of Antequera, pretty much straight away. Your enthusiasm was naturally rewarding for us. A lot of guests choose Antequera for its' location (access to Seville, Cordoba, Granada etc) which is warranted, and then are taken aback by the town itself after arrival. You appeared to have done your research prior, and we are very pleased that all was fulfilled. Thank you for visiting. Welcome back anytime.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful week. We used Castle View as a base whilst we explored the region but also fell in love with the town. So pretty and friendly. We had 2 teenage girls with us and I had no worries about them wandering around on there own. We had some lovely tapas and a fab meal at the bullring, (no bulls harmed) all at very reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back again.

Wonderful Visit!

  • 5 of 5

Castle View is a lovely home. The remodeled house is clean and comfortable, with a fully-equipped kitchen. We were a party of four adults and found ourselves spending most of our at-home time up on the deck enjoying the view of the town and the castle.

This was our first visit to Spain. We chose Antequera because of its proximity to Granada, Ronda, Seville and Cordoba. However, we loved Antequera so much that we spent most of our time in Antequera itself. We found the people to be very warm and welcoming. The variety of plazas are perfect for enjoying meals and people-watching. The town is very hilly. We walked the majority of the time and used taxis on a few occasions.

The owners of Castle View are very accommodating and were helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities.

We will remember our stay very fondly.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah and all, Thank you for your lovely words and your enthusiasm for Antequera. We get immense pleasure knowing guests enjoy their stay at the house, and importantly get the best out of the town with all it offers. As you discovered there is so much more to see and do here than a lot of people imagine. It was especially pleasing to know you amended your travelling plans to enjoy more of Antequera. We hope you also enjoyed your brief time in Málaga before returning. A great city. Our best wishes to you all.

De bien belles vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la maison de vacances proposée par Rupert et Mélanie. La maison est très bien équipée et l'on peut profiter d'une très belle terrasse qui offre une vue magnifique sur le site d'Antéquera, avec en plus l'aménagement d'une mini-piscine et l'équipement propices à la détente. Rupert et Mélanie sont extrêmement prévenants et à l'écoute, et aux petits soins pour leurs hôtes.

Une adresse que nous conseillons vivement.

Excellent house. Fantastic and kind Host. Great view. All that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday at Castle View is our first time in the area of Malaga, but not the last.

We had one of our best holidays in this house.

From the start to the end of the holiday everthing was just perfect.

A week before we arrived we had a mail correspondence with Melanie and Rupert about the practical things.

They arranged a taxi to pick us up in the airport, and the driver had our key with him, and he drove us to the house 50 km from the airport.

We were blown away by the lovely house, when we walked into the house. A charming spanish house in a rustic fabulous style. Every single room had a very special and nice interior design. The bathroom is amazing. Old stylish build up in stone.

The 2 bedrooms in a beautiful style, and the little terrasse outside the kitchen was very cozy.

But the terrasse on the roof was outstanding. The view... WAUW... And the pool... GREAT.. We spent more time at the house that we had expected. We just loved to be there.

Antequerra is a very nice town. It takes a little time to find out where everything was, but Rupert gave us many suggestions regarding shops, restaurants etc.

We have been in many other houses around Europe, but we have never stayed in a house before, where all we needed already was in the house when arriving. The house is equipped with everything. Kitchen equipment EXCELLENT.

I could write so many other great things about the house Castle View, but just try it. You will not be disappointed. We already miss it, and we are defently booking a house at Melanie and Rupert again next year.

So a big thanks to Melanie and Rupert from

Josefine, Trine and Kenneth
