This was a beautifully appointed bottom level of a house in the charming hill town of Antequerra....close to many sights (La Ronda, Malaga, Fuengirola, Cordoba and Granada). We spent a week here and were busy every day! The pool and patio are a nice oasis and the local restaurants weredeliciously extraordinary! Rupert and Mel were excellent hosts that guided us to splendid local and other significant sights and were extremely gracious and helpful. Thank you for such an amazing experience.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed here for a week in September. There was just my husband and I though the apartment can sleep four. It has absolutely everything that you would need and is very spacious. The small courtyard and plunge pool were absolutely delightful and a great place to relax in the sun. It was still 30c when we stayed in September. The owners Mel and Rupert are lovely and live above. They are there to help if you need anything but you also have total privacy if that's what you want also. One word of warning though is that the hills are extremely steep both up going down into the town and especially getting back up to the apartment - not great for anyone with mobility issues. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in Antequera

“What a great place”

Lemon Tree was just perfect, Mel & Rupert were lovely, and were there if you needed them. The house was great, it felt more like a home than a holiday let. The lovely garden with its pool is just what you need on a hot sunny day. The town of Antequera is well worth spending time in, it has lots of history, lovely people and lots of great restaurants and bars, proper Spanish- just how we like it! We spent two weeks at lemon tree and didn't hire a car, there is plenty to see and do within walking distance, although we got a taxi up to El Tocal ( well worth a visit) and our taxi driver Carlos was such a friendly chap. The only thing to say is don't wait and get yourself booked in you won't be disapointed

“Excellent apartment, great little town, wonderful stay”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Antequera is delightful and the apartment and its facilities are excellent. Although the shops, bars and restaurants are within a short walking distance, you need to be fairly active to enjoy the hills of Antequera. A car is essential providing fairly easy access to anywhere in Andalucia, including the coast, without being on the coast. The nearby nature reserve, El Torqual, is well worth a visit. The restaurants we tried were very quality whilst being reasonably priced. We will definitely return to stay here again.

“A Spanish gem - both apartment and town”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent 2 weeks here in September 2015. The apartment is a real gem with spacious accommodation and is more than just well equipped. Importantly to us it has real character in its design and furniture/fittings - a lot of thought has gone into keeping this authentic. The plunge pool and courtyard outside mean sunbathing and dining alfresco is also a definite bonus. It is situated in the higher part of the town with a bus stop just round the corner - we mainly walked everywhere anyway unless had shopping to bring home.. I recommend walking round the town just to keep spotting the wonderful architecture and beautifully maintained churches (about 30!).I'm not sure we saw everything within our 2 week stay, so will return again.

Antequera is one the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Spain that we have been too (and we do explore Spain a lot).Its a fairly affluent town with huge cultural appeal, litter free and clean, helpful and friendly residents, completely unspoilt, and with surprisingly few tourists so retains its typical Spanish culture. An example - we wanted to visit a newly restored blanket making museum but it was closed due to staff illness, so Tourist Info rang town council who sent a civil servant round to open this just for us for 2 hours - and this was a free entry museum!

I cannot recommend too highly both this terrific apartment and the town of Antequera. Do visit - and stay in this apartment!

“Lemons galore !”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

Living up to its name we had a lot of lemon windfalls so real lemonade and lemon sorbet all round.

Can't add a lot to previous reviews, place is lovely and hosts, who live above, very very respectful of privacy but you'll leave as friends!

Patio is smaller than it looks in the photos but perfectly lovely. Sun arrives on table/chairs and plunge pool by 10 - 10.30 then all day long. Lovely house and patio furnishings. Kitchen was very well equipped. Lots of good big effective fans. Two very English TV channels including discovery max which we loved! DVD easy to use.

On this trip we did a couple of nights Malaga, couple Cordoba and came to historic Antequera to just relax in an inland Spanish town (so much cheaper than the coast) for 10 days. It was a total heatwave so we didn't much leave the pool except for supermarket run and walking up to the fab Plaza de Escribanos for tapas as mentioned in wild-about-travel's 5reasons to visit enchanting antequera. Rupert will give you a good map and instructions! Visited local national park mentioned in the 5 reasons on a previous trip to Spain and would really recommend a trip there

We came by train but to the San Ana station about 18kms out. Taxi just 24 euros. Taxi back up hill from supermarket 5 euros and taxi rank directly in front of supermarket really handy. Rupert organised a taxi to airport for us just 65 euros.

So all in all for a big sightseeing tour of region or simply wanting a quiet and relaxing break this is the perfect place.
