The Andalucia region
Our guests have told us that Walnut Farm is ideally located for getting to see many different attractions, both locally and further afield. Granada (1 Hour) Seville (1.5 hours) Gibraltar ( 1.5 hours) Ronda (45 mins) and Cordoba are all well worth seeing. Some travel writers have dubbed the region "The Andalucian Lake District " and the area remains unspoilt by commercialism. Between the craggy mountains surrounding Ronda and Antequera there are around 6 lakes, each one a magnet for wildlife. The turquoise lakes of El Chorro are surrounded by soaring limestone crags with eagles frequently spotted circling around. There is also a fantastic railway walk which climbs around the gorge. Ski-ing in the Sierra Nevada is just over an hour away.
The climate - Summers are always very hot with rain rare between May and October. Winter months can still be warm but evenings are noticeably cooler.
Antequera, just 10 mins away from Walnut Farm is a Roman Town with many historic buildings, beautiful churches, a Moorish Castle, bullring, and other places of interest, and you can join a "Town Trail" from the Tourist Information office. Enjoy tapas, a special evening meal or just a drink in one of the many bars and restaurants. Just 10 minutes out of Antequera you can vist the unique and incredibly spectacular scenery of El Torcal - with many signposted walks of varying length and difficulty.
Fuentra de Piedra, a natural salt water lake and ornithologists paradise with thousands of flamingoes and other wildlfe is only 30 mins away. Granada and the magnificent Alhambra Palace is definitely not to be missed, and Seville one of the largest historical centres in Europe can be reached by car or from the train station in Antequera. Cordoba with its Great Mosque is considered the eighth wonder of the world. Closer by Villanueva de Trabucco, Villanueva de Rosario and Colmenar are typical Spanish villages.
Lake Iznajar (about 40 mins) has a beach and you can rent pedaloes or canoes and go sailing. Lake Vinuela is another beautiful lake where you can find several restaurants with wonderful views to enjoy. There are many local fiestas taking place throughout the Summer in all the nearby villages. The larger ones in Malaga and Antequera usually take place in August.

"Perfect place for the family to escape."
The "Nut Farm" was a wonderful respite from the normal routines of life. The gorgeous views, secluded location, and pool made for a peaceful, relaxing respite to recover from the exciting day trips we made. The location was conveniently located less than an hour from most places we visited in southern Spain, including al Hamra, Cordoba, Grenada, Gibraltar, etc. We look forward to returning.
