Antequera, Costa del Sol, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
This lovely restored old bakery is situated in Southern Andalusia in an area of outstanding natural beauty, amidst rolling hills punctuated by olive groves, almond trees and pine forests with the mountains as a backdrop. Wild boar, ibex, deer and wild bird life can be observed during the best part of the year

The owners have kept the rustic character of this more than 100 year old Hispano Moorish farm which can comfortably house from 2 to 6 people.

The inside decoration reflects the owners love for authenticity and interest in world travels. They have beautifully restored the beams in all rooms, uncovered stone walls and generally decorated with rustic and antique furniture and original paintings.

Ideal for a relaxing holiday by the pool and or to visit the historical towns of Andalusia, which are all in easy reach by car. Beautiful wa...

A real gem in the foothills. So pleased we stayed here. Excellent base for touring Granada, Cordoba and perhaps Seville. 40 mins drive from Malaga Airport. Accommodation first class and spotless. Converted property, tastefully restored with many delightful touches. Full of character yet equipped for all contingencies. Landscaped grounds with private pool and lounge areas. Very tempting just to chill...

The Cortijo which is in a great position for touring, had recently been redecorated and refurbished, making it even more comfortable and a pleasure to be in. The house was warm and cosy. Despite the problems Malaga had experienced with unusually bad weather, the area around La Serena escaped the worst...
