The superb large heated swimming pool is open from beginning of April until the end of November and shared only with guests from the other villa.
CASA ROSA is ideal for 2 couples sharing or for a couple with older chidren or 4 adults, as one of the bedrooms has a separate entrance, which is great for added privacy. This makes it not as suitable for families with very young children. The other villa, Casa Marguerita (ref 10108), would suit young children better.
Both houses booked together at Walnut Farm makes it a perfect holiday for extended large families, with in-laws or for 2 groups of friends/family where you want to holiday together but in privacy. You will have the whole of Walnut Farm to yourselves! There is nothing better than eating outside in true Spanish style. The garden furniture from each house can be joined together and all 9 people can eat as one big family on the large patio/pergola of Casa Marguerita which overlooks the pool. In the summer months many families swim until very late at night and there is even pool lighting!
Star gazing at night time with a bottle of wine is truly exceptional at Walnut Farm. There is very little light pollution and so the sky is just lit up to gaze at and dream under!
WALNUT FARM IS ALSO IDEAL FOR CORPORATE BOOKINGS TOO. Antequera Golf is within 10 mins which includes a spectacular 18 hole Golf Course, surrounded by the beautiful natural park, El Torcal. The length of the course is over 6000 metres and its surroundings in the natural environment and the special character of real inland Andalusia makes it an experience not to forget. The course is a challenge for professional and amateurs with a variety of interesting golf shots. Different options to play every hole according to your level of golf. The course offers a professional shop, practice area (with illuminated driving range), putting greens, chipping zones, bar, cafeteria, 2 restaurants and a conference room. There is even an indoor heated swimming pool, SPA, sauna and steam room!
Just 3 kms away from Walnut Farm is the incredible 'Las Navillas' Adventure Centre where your group can enjoy paintballing, horseriding, wall climbing, archery, zip slides across the moutain, 4x4 jeep mountain trips, and the fantastic experience of quad biking in groups up mountain tracks! Special packages can be arranged for you and negotiated by the owner for your group.
So why not enjoy a couple of amazing 'Adventure Days' in between a 'Golf Day' and then some 'Lazy Days' around the pool with games and competitions and then barbecueing altogether at night time al fresco! And then party in true Spanish style under the stars!
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.
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.
