We have just returned from a lovely week staying at the Lemon Tree in Antequera. The apartment itself is great - spacious and well equipped.The courtyard is private and the pool was ideal for our children. There is plenty to do in Antequera and the surrounding area and a week wasn't enough! We enjoyed visiting the lakes near Caminito del Rey, El Torcal, Cordoba, Ronda and the nearby wolf park, which the children loved. If you wish to walk on Caminito del Rey you need to book in advance on their website - it is already fully booked months in advance.
Mel and Rupert are welcoming hosts and provided us with lots of information. We would love to return one day.

“Great value, excellent location and helpful hosts”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We recently spent a lovely week at Lemon Tree. The location is ideal for walking into town, or for the local restaurants. The apartment was well equipped and well maintained. The outdoor space although small has the benefit of the pool which is a bonus. We travelled as a couple, but this apartment can accommodate four so is great value for money. The owners were friendly and helpful and very gracious when we did have a slight problem.

“A Very Pleasant Stay”

The hosts were lovely and accommodating. The apartment is the private first floor of a spacious house in the Spanish style. Our biggest complaint was that during the winter the thick walls and tile surfaces are difficult to keep warm and so the apartment was cool, but I am sure is indispensable in the summer. The location is perfect and we always found parking available nearby.

This is a delightful well-equipped apartment set within easy walking distance of Antequera with it's many shops, bars and restaurants. Rupert and Melanie, who live close by, provided us with lots of useful information and could not have been more helpful. The only downside was that we were only there for one week - we would have happily stayed for a month!

“Authentic Spanish Home - The Lemon Tree”

The Lemon Tree is authentic, quiet Spanish living in a lovely country town. You really are living in amongst the locals with plenty choice of some lovely restaurants and shops, prices were also very reasonable. Our hosts were very welcoming and provided us with a lovely home and garden - they also were very helpful for any advice/assistance if you choose to plan a day away etc. If you want a real feel for Spain try the Lemon Tree - Antequera - you won't be disappointed.

“Authentic Spain in a quiet, relaxing and beautiful apartment.”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We chose Antequera as it was only an hour or so drive from Seville/Cordoba/Granada and 1/2 hour from Malaga. But, as we discovered, there are so many other reasons to pick Antequera! The town itself is in a very rural location so you feel like you are away from huge packs of tourists and are immersed in authentic Spain. However, the town has enough bars, restaurants, things to see and do so you don't have to drive everywhere. Lemon Tree was the perfect base for this holiday- a 10/15 minute walk into the centre but a couple of little shops nearby. The apartment was much larger than we expected, so nice and airy. The best thing about it is the courtyard out the back. You are not overlooked at all, and have sole use of the pool/sunloungers/ BBQ. It is a real sun trap and a lovely place to while away the midday hours underneath the shade of the lemon tree. Melanie and Rupert were very informative and had some great recommendations for Antequera. Very hospitable, but not at all intrusive!

Thank you very much for our stay- we have already recommended it to friends and family!

The apartment was much more than we expected. Spotlessly clean and with everything you could need.The highlight is the outside space with the plunge pool. Perfect for sunbathing during the day and so relaxing with a nice cold drink in the evening.
Antequera is a beautiful town and all of the bars and restaurants are in walking distance. It is also well placed for exploring the region (the Alhambra and Cordoba only an hour away)
If you're looking for a truly unspolit Spanish experience this is the place to come to. Rupert and melanie were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Highly recommended.
