Charming 2-bedroomed villa, semi-rural location near Antequera, sleeps 4/5. Fabulous private heated pool (available April-October) Wifi, BBQs, patios, mountain scenery, gardens. Great location for visiting Granada, Seville, Córdoba, Ronda, Malaga, 35 minutes to coast/beaches, 20 mins to lakes/mountains. Perfect sightseeing, birdwatching, family chill out!
This is a unique opportunity to have a holiday with a difference in a semi rural stunning setting but with all modern amenities including wifi, modern kitchens and bathrooms etc., and an amazing pool. Walnut Farm consists of Casa Marguerita (this listing) and a second villa Casa Rosa (see separate listing) and is just 30 mins inland from Malaga and just over 10 mins from the beautiful town of Antequera. The 2 villas are completely private and enclosed and set in over half an acre of gardens full of walnut trees, with some olive and fruit trees too. Each house (Casa Marguerita sleeps 4/5 and Casa Rosa sleeps 4) shares the superb large private pool which guests have described as the 'stunning', 'immaculate' and ' the icing on the cake'.
Casa Marguerita has 2 x twin bedded rooms and a sofa bed in lounge to accommodate a 5th person if needed. There is a one main luxury bathroom in Casa Marguerita with a gorgeous large corner bath plus shower. The second bedroom has an ensuite with WC and basin only. The stunning large heated pool is 10 metres x 5 metres. Most pools in Southern Spain are not heated making it impossible to swim other than in July and August when pools are heated by the exceptionally hot sun. But our pool can be heated in April, May, June and in Sept and October too! We have 10 lovely sun loungers, pool toys and inflatables for you to use, plus shady spaces for children or adults to relax or enjoy a Spanish afternoon siesta! The pool even has under water lighting so it can be used at night in the hot Summer evenings.
Each villa has its own indoor and outdoor dining areas to eat separately and own chiminea style barbecues. Casa Marguerita has 2 patios/pergolas - one at the front and one at the side of the villa directly overlooking the pool under a gorgeous grapevine covered pergola. Enjoy breakfast on the front patio as the sun comes up, and lunch under the pergola at the side of the house with shade in the day. But at night in the Summer you can spend long relaxing evenings wining and dining under a million stars at night! The skies at night at Walnut Farm are just superb as there is no light pollution.
So winding down, relaxing and being in spectacular surroundings with a fabulous pool is what makes a holiday at Walnut Farm so special. But equally it's easy to get to the coast if you want the beach or to Seville, Granada, Córdoba etc for amazing sight seeing trips. Overall though you will quickly switch off here at Walnut Farm and find it easy to relax and unwind in our little 'piece of Spanish paradise' as guests have described it!
Guests can access to Casa Marguerita and its 2 outside patio areas with dining facilities outside, chiminea style BBQ, swimming pool and gardens with fruit and walnut trees. The garden has a mini putting green, a giant chessboard and badminton net too. Also guests have access to a utility room at the bottom of the garden which houses golf putters and balls, giant chess pieces, badminton racquets and other garden games etc plus additional fridge, freezer, washing machine, iron, ironing board etc.
Lynne and her husband Paul as owners are living in Antequera town for the 2017 season. We will be delighted to meet and greet you on your arrival day and share our tips and advice with you. We have been coming to Antequera and to Andalucia for 10 years now! We will visit Walnut Farm once more mid week to do the pool cleaning and some gardening/plant watering and will tell you in advance when we will pop over. We are also on hand of course by phone and email any day if an emergency arises.
We also provide a full Information Book and there is a Guest Comment book. Thea books including tips of places to visit and recommended restaurants are available together with maps and leaflets which guests always find useful. A welcome food and drink pack can be organised if required for a small extra charge.
April May and October are lovely months to visit if you fancy doing some walking as it is a little cooler than in the height of Summer. El Torcal with its spectacular 'lunar’ style rocks is definitely worth seeing. The area is very popular with birdwatchers and horse riding can also be arranged. A trip to the Lobo Park ( Wolf Park) is very interesting and just 20 minutes away. Several Lakes and the coast are also within easy reach.
Torremolinos or Parador Del Golf beaches we love to visit. Lake Iznajar and it's pretty little town well worth visiting. The Alhambra Palace and gardens in Granada are amazing (book tickets in advance) The cathedral and the city in Seville great to see. And the Mezquita in Córdoba is just breath taking to see. All restaurants in Antequera and near to Walnut Farm offer every day a 'Menu Del Dia' ( menu of the day) which is a 3 course meal with bread and a drink too for around 8 to 14 euros only! They are amazing value and a great way to try the local food. You usually get a choice from 3 starters, 3 mains, several desserts, any drink. But ask for the 'Menu del Dia' otherwise you will be handed the a la carte menu normally.
Most bars /restaurants offer a selection of tapas too from about €1.50 each upwards. Some bars in towns 'off the beaten track' give a free tapa with each drink. We love finding them!
No smoking inside either house. No glasses at the pool - plastic glasses provided. Most important rule : chill out and have an amazing time!

I am semi retired, and together with my husband Peter we enjoying travelling both in Europe and further afield. I enjoy cooking and am learning Spanish at the moment (my sister speaks better than me..so that is the current challenge..... to get to her level! ) I also enjoy playing scrabble, cooking and gardening. We own Walnut Farm with my sister Lynne and her husband Paul and guests tell us they love the rustic charm of the two beautifully appointed cottages combined with the luxury of a 10m x 5m heated swimming pool. We have many guests that return each year as find the location of Walnut Farm just perfect......only 35 minutes from Malaga airport and close to Seville, Cordoba and Granada. We are just 10 minutes away from the beautiful Roman town of Antequera. If you want to see the "real" Spain, choose Walnut Farm and we are sure you wont be disappointed. Visit our website for further details and photographs showing the stunning setting close to the mountains but with easy access to the main roads.
