An amazing holiday house!!!

  • 5 of 5

At first we would like to say tyhat the manager Jose and his parents are amazing people that received us with a great warmth and hospitality! The house is a dream! we loved it in all the ways. An amazing view, the quietness that we were looking for, we found here. A delicious brease during the hot days! As the pictures is in real life! Beauty and all that you ever look for during a classy holidays.

The shopping we did mostly in Antequera, a nice place with many supermarkets aropund 17 kilometers driving by car! But a small one is situated in La Joya.

The service from the owners was great. we had just a small problem with the cleaner of the pool, it was resolved right away. We thank the family of Jose for their hospitality and we wish to come back here many times!!!

Exactly as pictured and More...

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were met by Jose. Who couldn't have been more helpful. The place itself was ideal. Private very clean and absolutely everything you could want in there including a first aid kit and childs highchair and cot with mattress. The rooms are spacious and the pool is clean. We were celebrating a 10 year anniversary. We couldn't have chosen a better place for it. Just up the road is a hotel with a fine restaurant and food was gorgeous After 2 days of arriving Jose's mother arrived with tablets for the dishwasher, apples and pears, and olive oil also free range eggs from their chickens. We are both very grateful for such a great gesture. We would recommend this villa and furthermore wouldn't hesitate to return Thanks very much for such a peaceful and enjoyable holiday.

All as pictured and promised

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a base for 2 weeks of very cold, windy and rainy winter days, and still enjoyed breaking up our easy day trips to Cordoba, Ronda, Malaga and Granada, with days by the fire. Jose and his parents could not have been more kind and solicitous of our comforts and needs, and brought us extra logs and eggs from their 'very happy' chickens! A most agreeable, if contrarian "vacation".

Fabulous holiday in la Casa del Hortelano

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in La Joya. This house is very clean, well equipped, tastefully decorated and the views over the surrounding countryside are stunning. Puri, the owner, was most welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed the lovely produce she left out to greet us on our arrival. There is plenty to see nearby, such as El Torcal, Antequera, Fuente de Piedra and the lakes near El Chorro, that is if you can tear yourself away from the beautiful pool and the amazing views!

From the terrace you can see Serrania de Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves, Guadalhorce Valley, the Mediterranean Sea, Malaga and its mountains, and ultimately, Sierra Tejeda and Almijara.

1 minutes away is the town of La Joya: shops, bakeries, restaurants, tobacconist, pharmacy, etc.

Located in the municipality of Antequera, in the center of Andalusia, is an ideal location for visiting places such as: Malaga (La Alcazaba, El Torcal de Antequera, Sierra de las Nieves, Marbella, Ronda), Granada (Alhambra, Generalife Gardens, Sierra Nevada), Córdoba (La Mezquita, the Episcopal Palace, the Jewish quarter, Ecija, Carmona), Jaén (Jaén Cathedral, Baena, Lucena, Montilla) and Seville (the Giralda, the Torre del Oro, Utrera, Jerez de la Frontera).

Other attractions nearby (local) is El Chorro, Antequera, Antequera Alcazaba, the Roman Ruins, El Torcal de Antequera, Wolf Park and the Dolmen de Menga.

El Torcal de Antequera is a nature reserve known for the whimsical forms that the various agents of erosion have shaped its limestone, forming an outstanding example of karst landscape. El Torcal de Antequera gives you the opportunity to perform one of its 3 hiking trails, plus the ability to climb from their particular rock formations.

El Chorro (Málaga) is a limestone canyon located near Alora. It is famous for its climbing routes and one of its via ferrata, El Caminito del Rey. It is considered the best climbing place in Andalusia, and is among the top 5 rock climbing sites in Spain.

In addition to El Chorro and El Torcal de Antequera there are many climbing sites in Malaga, among which include La Cueva (Archidona and Casares), Archidona Canyon Manilva (Manilva) Desplomilandia (Ardales), Rio de la Venta (Campillos ), Turon (Ardales) and Villanueva del Rosario (the controversial Chilam Balam, the hard way in the world).
