“love this place!”
Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wow ! We visited Walnut Farm with a group of friends and found both houses : Casa Marguerita and Casa Rosa to be a delight. Very clean indeed, very well equipped and eveything was just perfect. Both pergolas/patios for eating out are lovely and overlook the stunning large pool and mountain views. Great outdoor BBQs and the scenery is stunning. The accommodation was delightfull and comfortable with everything we needed. Location is very central for sightseeing to Cordoba and Malaga and Granada etc. Antequera as a town is really lovely with lots of great shops, bars and restaurants and amazing churches and a castle. We loved Malaga as a city too for culture and the plaza and the beach too was superb, all just 30 minutes away. We met the owners of Walnut Farm who greeted us and gave us so many tips. Great information book in each villa and they have thoiuht of everything to make for a great stay! A real gem in the centre of Andalucia. Thanks :)

“Lovely quiet location apart from birdsong :)”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were looking for somewhere like this for a mini break when a flyer came through on e-mail. The dates matched our requirements so we got in touch straight away - the response from the owners was timely and was kept informed at all stages of the booking process.

We were arriving on a Sunday, so with shops shut, the proprietor had arranged some provisions for us which was most welcome.

We were given copious notes on how to get to the Finca but only really needed the stuff at the final stage as it was 'off-track'. What we found was delightful with Peter and Janet there to greet us. It was a shame about the weather, another couple of weeks and we could have included a comment about the pool but all I can say was that it looked inviting!

The cottage we stayed in (Casa Marguerita) was comfortable though the beds weren't (since been rectified I believe). The wood-burning stove was required so we had fun colleting kindling when out on our walks.

There is an extensive garden with trees and shrubs. Nightingales, goldfinches and greenfinches sand all day. Crested Larks, Woodchat Shrike, Hawfinch, Sardinian Warbler were all regular visitors as well as Griffon Vultures overhead!

The place is basically at the top of the mountain pass between Malaga and the plain at Antequera - 40 minutes from Malaga Airport and 10 from Antequera. What we loved was the easy access to a lot of nice sites such as Laguna de Fuente de Piedra - a lake (albeit a bit dry this year) with Flamingoes and a whole host of waders and other birds. It's only 30 minutes away. And then there are the reservoirs towards El Chorro gorge - wonderful. And just 'round the corner' about 15 minutes away is a drive up above Villaneuva del Rosario where we had Bonelli's Eagle.

There are hotels nearby catering for motorway traffic. We sampled one of them - never again! We travelled to Ronda (about and hour and a half) and Cordoba (hour and a quarter) whilst we were there. I'd go back to those places, especially the latter and give us more time there.

This place would be ideal for a peaceful family holiday and, using the other cottage, great for groups or a couple of families. We just didn't have enough sun/warmth or enough time so we'll just have to go back again!

Hi thanks for your lovely review. We are delighted you had such a lovely time and saw so many birds in and around the area. Glad you enjoyed and appreciated Walnut Fam so much. And Yes we have replaced the mattresses immediately as the comfort of our guests is very important to us. We did not know of the problem prior to or during your stay so the problem is now resolved. Would be great as you say to see you return in the future. Thanks again. Janet and Peter :)

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful part of Spain with amazing views around the villa. Very good for day trips out, and lots of information is provided within the villa of tourist sites etc.
Very good facilities and nicely secluded. Would wait for children to be older to go again so we could could appreciate it more as a family.
Very hot time of year to visit, so the pool comes in very handy. Would recommend people to book.

“Lovely relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful relaxing week at Walnut Farm. There is loads to do within driving distance to keep teenagers occupied. The pool was very welcome as it was extremely hot. We would love to visit again as there is plenty more places to visit and a week was not enough.

“great break”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in September 2014

I had a great week with my family using both villas and having the pool and gardens to ourselves. Just so quiet relaxing by the super swimming pool and yet plenty to do nearby.
I liked the architecture of Antequera good for shopping too. Well equipped villas with everything you might need to enjoy your holiday
