“Gorgeous apartment in an authentic Spanish town”

My husband and my parents in law had the most wonderful week at the Lemon Tree apartment. There was lots of space for all 4 of us and the facilities were excellent. We throughly enjoyed pottering around Antequerra, which is a lovely town with great restaurants which doesn't feel very touristy at all, despite being so near the cost and lots of beautiful sites. If you come we DEFINITELY recommend you spend a day up at the fresh water lakes (our best day) which are only about 40 mins away too. Rupert and Melanie couldn't have been lovelier to us too.

“Relaxing Easter break”

This is a great place to stay if you want to spend your time simply exploring Antequera or venture out to some of the interesting villages, or even Cordoba or Granada, which are all within easy reach. The apartment is airy and spacious and well equipped. The rear terrace, with the lemon tree and plunge pool, is a great place to eat and drink (when it’s warm enough). We were there for the week before Easter so we able to see several of the Semana Santa processions. Yes, it is a steep hill up and down into the town centre but you’ll soon get used to it! They say Antequera is classified as a city but it feels more like a large town. The owners, Rupert and Melanie, were helpful and informative but not at all intrusive.

Never having travelled to Spain before, it was not a trip not without trepidation... We picked Lemon Tree Apartment simply becuase it looked wonderful on the website. We knew nothing whatsoever about Antequera and therefore knew we were taking a risk! We need not have worried though. The owners made us very welcome with lots of local information about where to eat, drink and walk. Even though we hired a car, it stayed parked up for the entire week as we walked just about everywhere since the old town was stunning.

Lemon Tree Apartment was a wonderul old building with lots of rustic charm, carefully restored and a lovely plunge pool to cool us down during the very hot, dry days. Its very large kitchen made cooking our simple lunches even more enjoyable, and to eat outside was a rare treat being from very cold England!

The question is, would we go back? ... in a heartbeat!

Thank you very much. H & S Campbell, The Cotswolds, UK
