|Further details indoors|
Casa Rosa has a fully fitted kitchen including a conventional gas cooker with a grill and 4 rings. There is a 'combination microwave' (which also acts as an oven and grill).
The accommodation includes two bedrooms - one has an en suite shower room and is accessed off the main living area of the villa. The second bedroom has an en suite bathroom - but has the benefit of access via its own separate front door. Casa Rosa therefore is ideal for either 1 or 2 couples, or a family with older children, due to the added privacy.
|Further details outdoors|
Fully tiled magnficent swimming pool (10m x 5 m with Roman steps) plus large surrounding terrace with sunloungers, parasols and outdoor shower.
There is a separate utility room at the bottom of the garden housing a washing machine, freezer and additional fridge plus iron and ironing board. There is a small library with books, games, CDs and DVDs. Several outdoor games including gigantic chess and 'jenga' are provided. Laundry and towels and cleaning all included.
Casa Rosa is set in a large plot with one other 2 bed villa (known as Casa Marguerita) within gardens that feature a large number of walnut, fruit and olive trees, and which offer guests the opportunity to enjoy stunning countryside and mountain views. A beautiful patio with pergola covered by climbing plants sits at the front of the villa. Together with quality wooden furniture, a BBQ and surrounded by potted flowers this area is perfect for alfresco dining, any time of the day.
The lovely gardens include additional seating areas for guests to enjoy the tranquility and scenery. The clear star-studded night sky at Walnut Farm is also truly breath taking!
10% 'Early Bird discount' can be deducted if bookings made by 31st Jan 2014 for 2014 bookings (excluding mid July - end Aug)
The heated swimming pool is open from April to November and shared only with guests from the other villa. Walnut Farm is completeley enclosed.
Casa Rosa is Ideal for 2 couples sharing or for a couple with older chidren 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.
The Canary Islands 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.

This has got to be one of the best holidays we have taken. The villa was lovely and had everything we could want for a relaxing holiday. The children didn't come out of the pool the whole time we were there and we are going to book for next year with friends.
