We have just returned from a lovely relaxing holiday at Villa Marguerita, Walnut Farm, Antequera. This was the first time we have visited. When we arrived, the owners Lynne and Paul were at the villa and showed us around. Inside the property was a compact kitchen that had everything we needed, a cosy lounge with 2 settees with a tv and dvd player with a selection of films you could watch (if you wanted) and a dining area with a large dining table and 6 chairs. The large master bedroom had plenty of storage for clothes and the beds were made up with crisp white bed sheets. The main bathroom was spacious with a large corner bath. There was further smaller (but still spacious ) bedroom that had a separate toilet.
Outside of the house was a small table with 4 chairs which was in the sunshine from the moment you got up. We preferred to sit at the back of the house under the trellis with grapevines which was in the shade for the majority of the time. There was a large brick built BBQ which got plenty of use. The garden was huge with lots of Olive and Walnut Trees. There were colourful plant pots dotted around the terraces which looked very pretty. The icing on the cake was the fantastic pool which we spent most of our time either sat alongside or splashing about in. The views around the property were breath taking.
We have come back fully relaxed and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a villa holiday to book with Walnut Farm.
Spent a lovely week with family at Walnut Farm.
The property is situated in a quiet, out of the way position but is easy to get to from the airport and is a short drive from the main town of Antequera. The views of the surrounding mountains are stunning.
The villas are spotless and well equipped, with the larger being equipped for a young family like ours.
The pool is beautiful and large enough to accommodate all guests as well as a significant number of inflatables!!!!
Evenings barbecuing are peaceful on the terrace with lovely star gazing opportunities. There is more than enough terrace space to go round!
If your idea of a holiday is getting away from it all with family and friends I cannot recommend Walnut Farm enough.
We couldn't have asked for more from a holiday. The accommodation is clean and well-equipped. The garden; absolutely beautiful. Our three year-old loved the pool, with the toys and inflatables provided, and really enjoyed the shaded hammocks for down-time. There was so much to do in the local area too. We did a fairly easy 1.5km ramble in El Torcal, involving lots of rock scrambling and nature-spotting, perfect for an active kid. The wolf sanctuary was a hit, as was the park on the edge of Antequera, with its small zip wire, slides and cafe selling ice cream and large gin and tonics!! We visited a local swimming lake and also managed to fit in a trip to Seville, but we feel like we barely scratched the surface of this magical area. Walnut Farm is the perfect place to relax, sunbathe and explore from. We will be back!!
Stayed at Casa Marguerite with friends. Nice and clean, lovely pool and gardens. Friendly owners. Nice to have English television.
The heated pool was great. In april really necessary otherwise the water would be too cold to swim in. Our daughters (5 and 3) loved it. The house was comfortabel and had all we needed.
Location was central, by car it was easy to go to antequerra (15 min) or cordoba (75 min), the places we visited.
We would recommend it to anyone.
