Overview

For a group of friends or a large family planning a classic cultural Andalucia holiday, visiting Granada and Ronda, Cordoba or Seville, this Antequera location is just right.

Our rural choice here is La Joya (430 inhabitants) on the verge of El Torcal Natural Park, typically Andalusian and easy-going, where we offer a recently reformed holiday home in the quiet, authentic village.

The outstanding feature is its Moroccan-style patio, a vast 275 square metres comprising an 10-metre swimming pool, sun terrace and a stylish saloon, where you can relax with games or a barbecue.

The main living room is a generous 40 m² and there's another sitting room upstairs.

We'd have liked a larger kitchen, but it's well-equipped and there's plenty of china and glasses for everybody.

There are six bedrooms, two in the ground floor and four in the first floor.

At the rear of the house the patio with its swimming pool is the most popular and social place to spend your time. It’s quite private as neighbouring windows do not look directly onto it.

There's a fountain here and the shady, furnished Arabic saloon is a refreshing area to relax after a day out. It also has a brick-built barbecue. This covered recreational space is a cool space that invites you to sit or play games such as table tennis, darts and board games, or just relax with a book in the shade.

Just round the corner are a village shop and a simple restaurant  that serves drinks and meals from breakfast to dinner time. You can also walk to the bank and pharmacy.

Within day-trip reach are the great jewels in the Andalusian crown:

• Classical Granada with the Alhambra is 1 hr 30 mins away.

• Orange-blossomed Cordoba and its magnificent mosque is also 1 hr 30 mins.

• Ronda, mountain town of bandits, bullfighting, Rilke, Hemingway, Orson Welles, and a famous chasm, is again 1 hr 30 mins.

• Quintessentially flamboyant Sevilla is 2 hours.

The immediate area to AX22 is also of significant interest: El Torcal Natural Park is just a few minutes drive and offers signposted walks through phantasmagorical rock formations! Strongly recommended.

Further afield, you can also visit the impressive El Chorro limestone gorge, especially interesting for the reservoir area with its outstanding views and picnic spots. El Chorro has an infamous and death-defying high altitude walkway, which is now strictly off-limits.

At Laguna de Fuente de Piedra you can see Andalucia’s largest lagoon and a Natural Reserve which is the breeding ground for flocks of pink flamingos.

Antequera town, 20 mins away is less exciting, but the historian and anthrolpogists amongs you will find the dolmen caves an ancient curiosity well worth visiting.

The property is also convenient for arrival from abroad: 55 mins by hire car from Malaga Airport.

The villa was perfect for a large group of friends with lots of communal space and each room having their own bathroom."

Sally | August | 2015

This is a lovely property in a small authentic village. We loved the small shops and the restaurant which meant we did not always have to get in the car. Having fans and air conditioning meant we could use a combination to keep the property at a very comfortable temperature. If there had been more of us (we were 5) I think we would have found some of the facilities to be very limited. There was not enough kitchen equipment to cook a proper meal (large pans, serving dishes etc) and only 3 pool towels were provided. Plus if the property was full there were only 6 sun loungers and clearly not enough crockery and glassware for anywhere near 12 settings. We stayed 11 days and normally would have expected a changeover of towels and linen after one week. This did not happen but was not an issue given our shorter stay - if we had been there for a fortnight I think this would have been more of an issue though. We had a lovely holiday in a lovely area - and the choice of properties from Rustical Travel is very good - so I am sure we will be travelling with you again."
