Antequera Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom luxury child-friendly villa in Andalucia sleeping 15

Casa La Sierrecilla is a magnificent six-bedroom holiday villa offering child-friendly luxury in the heart of Andalucia. Perfect for an unforgettable family holiday in the Andalucian sunshine, the 4000 ft² of space enables large families or friends to relax in this beautiful location, within walking distance of the tapas bars of a charming village. We warmly welcome children, and the sparkling pool is heated, fenced and gated for parents' peace of mind. Toys, books and lots of children's DVDs are provided in the playroom! We have 2 wooden cots, 2 high chairs and specially–made stairgates. Baby equipment includes a baby bath, lightweight stroller, electric bottle warmer, baby monitor, 3 toddler bed guards, Avent microwave steriliser and potties!

This is a villa in which to experience the real Andalucia. Casa La Sierrecilla is set in olive-growing countryside, just 10 minutes easy stroll from a typical Andalucian village where wonderful meals can be enjoyed in its tapas bars and restaurants. The world-famous treasures of Granada, Cordoba and Seville are easily visited and the vibrant coastal city of Malaga and the Mediterranean sea are only 25 minutes by train.

This is first and foremost a luxury family home, with a fully enclosed garden and fenced pool area for children’s safety. The one acre garden is a wonderful place for children to explore, with an orchard of olive, almond, pomegranate and fig trees, lawns for playing on and a Little Tikes playhouse for the little ones!

Andalucians live outside during the summer and Casa La Sierrecilla encapsulates this outdoor lifestyle. The poolside bar (with fridge to keep drinks cool!) is ideal for preparing al fresco meals to eat on the covered dining area next to the pool terrace. Ample sunbathing terraces (with non-slip tiles) and lawns surround the pool. The pool dimensions are 8m x 5m and from 1m to 2m deep. The large veranda is also ideal for relaxing and for dining on warm summer evenings.

The charming whitewashed village of Humilladero is only 1 km away (10 minutes level stroll or one minute in the car!) and all basic necessities can be bought in its small supermarkets and grocery stores. Quiet and sleepy during the day, the village comes to life on warm summer evenings as the locals wander through the streets, sampling tapas in the bars and restaurants and children play outside till the early hours! Tapas are still included in the price of your drink here! Only 15 minutes’ drive is the historic and beautiful town of Antequera, with its atmospheric old centre and Moorish castle, not to mention excellent shops and many good restaurants and bars. Golfers will enjoy the 18-hole golf course at Antequera Golf.

For most of our guests no holiday would be complete without visiting one of the great cities of Andalucia – Seville, Cordoba or Granada. Casa La Sierrecilla occupies a privileged position in the heart of Andalucia, ideally situated for trips to these world-famous cities. Only five minutes’ drive away is the new high-speed (AVE) station at Antequera-Santa Ana. From here you can reach Cordoba with its stunning Mezquita in only 30 minutes, the vibrant coastal city of Malaga in about 25 minutes and Seville in about 90 minutes. From Antequera’s other station Granada can also be reached in less than 90 minutes. Be sure to book in advance if you wish to visit the Alhambra palace in summer – we can provide details about online booking. Antequera is also very well connected by motorway, making drives to the above destinations easy and rapid.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From 89 to 18 months - we all had a thoroughly great time in this beautiful, family friendly villa. Because we were only there for a week we spent most of our time in the vicinity of the villa, which proved to be one of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Everything is there - from the lovely spacious interior, cool quiet bedrooms, well equipped kitchens, and a play/quiet room if you want to get away from it all. To the fun pool/bar area and the lovely patios and gardens. The owners are only a phone call away if you need assistance with the equipment and they are very helpful. Nearby Humilladero (10 mins walk) has supermarkets, pharmacy and bars, and its only 20 mins in the car to Antequera to experience a beautiful, historic Spainish town. We took a trip to Ronda - approximately 1 hours drive - and enjoyed the delights of scenery, shops, historic buildings and friendly Spanish hospitality. I cannot recommend this villa enough to all of those who have children and want a safe, fun environment for them to play in. We left with great regret but hope to return.

Happy children and happy parents

  • 5 of 5
As a parent of two little boys, age 4 and 3. Booking holidays is always a mission to find somewhere that will have enough things to keep them happy and occupied and therefore give the adults a break. This villa has it all. Large secure gardens for them to run round and look for geckos. Lovely gated pool area with shaded table and chairs for the grandparents to sit and supervise the children, while the rest of us baked in the sun. And then there is the playroom. If my boys could have chosen their perfect playroom, this would probably be pretty close. Full of videos, dvds, dinosaurs, superheros (of which my two are obsessed) plus plenty of others things too. Happy children definitely equal happy and relaxed parents
The location is great. Its so easy to drive to the water parks and beaches on the coast. We also visited Cordoba whilst the in-laws did Granada. Antequera is also lovely to walk around.
One final thing. We had a small problem with the kettle tripping the power supply and then an issue with one of the showers. I texted Heather the owner, and both were rectified really quickly by the caretaker. Couldn't really ask for more!

The El Torcal National Park and the sparkling blue waters of the Chorro gorge are only twenty minutes away.
