We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Casa Francisca. Jose was a very gracious host and Rami and her husband were a joy to deal with. We loved the house and the location, although it was further out in the country than we expected. It takes a good 30 minutes on twisty, up and down 2 lane roads to get to the highway to go to either Malaga or Antequera. El Torcal was a wonderful surprise and we loved the closeness of the stars at night. The neighbors goats stayed on their property, but we could see evidence of goat grazing on the house's property. The house did have a few things that needed repairing (downstairs shower head holder) but overall it is in excellent condition. Beware taking long hot showers, as the on demand water heater is supplied by small propane tanks (BBQ grill sized).
If you want a true flavor of the Spanish countryside, and a quiet place to relax by a pool, then this is the place for you.
We had a lovely time here the villa has lot's of space and is very well equipped everything we needed was provided. There were 7 of us and we never felt on top of each other lot's of space.This is the place to experience the real spain. Goat herder's in the evening bringing in their herd .View of El torcal .And Antequera is a very pretty town not spoilt by commercialism.
