About Heather McMillan
We bought Casa La Sierrecilla in 2001 after a long search. We loved the villa because of its huge size and level of comfort and the fact that although new, it was built in the quintessentially Andalucian style. We have taken care to source local country-style furniture, both new and antique, to add to the traditional and welcoming feel. Our four children love the space they have, both inside and outside, especially the large garden and pool! We particularly wanted to be very close to a typical village so we could experience the relaxed lifestyle of Spain on a regular basis. The Antequera area was perfect for us as we love to visit the great cities of Andalucia and also the more traditional coastal towns east of Malaga to enjoy the seafood!

Very good house for a holiday with children and grandchildren .....in the middel of olivetrees 😀�
Beautiful home with stunning views
The location is a perfect base for visiting Seville and Granada also for experiencing a bit of ‘real’ Spain. There isn’t much English spoken in the area but, everyone is very friendly. Heather’s communication, information and advice were second to none ithroughout our dealings with her.
Peaceful, child friendly villa
We have just returned from a lovely two week stay here. The villa had everything we needed for all ages including our 14 month old. It felt really relaxed been somewhere so peaceful and rural. We hired cars to be able to visit Seville, Granada and Malaga, all of which are beautiful and not too much of a drive.
We had a small problem with one of the blinds, which was repaired very efficiently, very pleased with how quickly everyone responded to the problem.
It was great having a separate playroom for the little one, q useful place to go when it got too hot!
Communication before, during and after the holiday has been fabulous.
Overall, a lovely holiday in q lovely setting and we hope to return one day in the future.
Villa well equiped pool great plenty of room for kids room for adults to chill out in
Comfortable and Well-Equipped Villa
Our extended family party (8 to 80+) had a very enjoyable week at Casa La Sierrecilla. The villa is spacious and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen. We spent much of the time in the heated pool area enjoying the autumn sunshine but even when the weather turned wet there were plenty of games to play, a well stocked bookcase and videos for the children to watch. The local village, Humilladero, is 10 minutes walk away and the very interesting town of Antequera is just 15 minutes drive. The owner, Heather, was very helpful and provided plenty of information about the villa and the surrounding area in advance of our trip and also supplied plenty of supplementary information in the villa for our perusal. We would certainly like to return at some point in the future.
We had the most wonderful time in your lovely villa. It is beautifully spacious with large rooms and so well equipped.
It is the perfect place for a large family. The pool area is fantastic and it has all been so well thought out.
Alex and Lawrence became amazing swimmers and we had lots of swimming races etc. it is a great situation and we hardly met any British people and could visit many interesting places.
Thank you so much. I am sure we will visit again.
The lovely whitewashed village of Humilladero is only ten minutes´ walk away (or one minute in the car - parking is easy!). It has some wonderful traditional tapas bars and everyday shops and small supermarkets. There is a typical market on Thursdays. Only 15 minutes´ drive is the beautiful historic town of Antequera with its Moorish castle, fantastic bars and restaurants and fabulous shops! Children will love visits to the Antequera Wolf Park and the Fuente de Piedra donkey sanctuary!
From Antequera´s new high-speed station (5 minutes' drive from the villa) you can be in the vibrant and historic coastal city of Malaga in 25 minutes! Stroll round the lush tropical Parque, visit the Moorish castle or enjoy the traditional Andalucian bars and fabulous shops of the historic old quarter!
There are so many other options for outings. All our guests are enchanted by the stunning blue waters of the Andalucian lake district at El Chorro Gorge! Alternatively, the dramatic landscapes of the Torcal National Park are great for adventurous kids! The unforgettable city of Cordoba, with its stunning Mezquita, is only half an hour from Antequera Santa Ana station. Seville (90 minutes) and Granada (80 minutes) are also easily visited by car or train. Many of our guests visit the Alhambra palace in Granada (justifiably a World Heritage Site!) during their stay and we provide information on our website on how to book in advance .
We love the more Spanish beaches to the east of Malaga (just under an hour´s drive away), with their family-friendly atmosphere and fantastic seafood restaurants, such as the legendary El Tintero!
Malaga airport is just under an hour's drive away. While it is lovely to be able to stroll into the village for tapas, we do feel that car hire is essential for shopping for large groups and to see all the sights of this beautiful area. Access to the villa is very easy as it sits just outside the village of Humilladero. No four-wheel drive needed!
