The spacious, fully-equipped townhouse is situated next to the Alcazabar (Moorish castle) in a quiet street in the historic quarter of Antequera. The bedrooms are spacious and airy with lovely Julietta balconies to the front overlooking El Torcal. The courtyard is an excellent oasis to enjoy outdoor dining. The sun terrace has a view of the Moorish Castle and has the benefit of outdoor airconditioning to cool yourself on those hot summer Andalucian days. An excellent base to visit both the immumerable sites Antequera has to offer and the nearby attractions. Nestled in the "heart of Andalucia " the house is only a 40 minute drive from Malaga airport and the Costa Del Sol with all its famous attractions. 30 minutes to the East is Granada in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and its famous "Alhambra", just under an hour to the North is Cordoba with its Mezquita and in just over an hour you can be in the Andalusian capital of Sevilla, famed for its Giralda and flamenco dancing. Antequera is the mid-way point between Sevilla and Granada and provides an excellent base for those wishing to follow the famed "Route of Washington Irving". Nearby, there are some great places to visit; the Lobo Park, where you can see and hear wolves in their natural environment. The Flamingoes in the shallow lagoon of Fuente de Piedra, also in Fuente there is an excellent Donkey sanctuary.
The townhouse was spacious & very clean with a nice sized private courtyard in the back. The kitchen was well equipped although there wasn't an oven but that wasn't a problem for us. The master bedroom was spacious and the other bedrooms were a good size. The beds were very comfortable and because the townhouse is on a dead-end street, it was quiet in the evenings. The townhouse is located in one of the highest elevations of the town, so the views of the surrounding mountains & town were breathtaking.
Lots of things to see & do in Antequera - the Alcazaba (which is directly behind the townhouse) and the museum downtown depicting the history of Antequera were well worth the visit. There are also lots of great restaurants to try - our favourites were Los Cruz Meson, Meson Casa Diego, Arte de Tapas and Marengo's, a little coffee shop by the square at the bottom of the stairs, which made excellent cafe con leches. Also check out the local hiking trails - you can see them from the townhouse.
The only thing that was missing was WiFi which meant we had to make a daily trek to a local restaurant to check emails etc. which was a bit of a pain. Otherwise, we'd highly recommend this location and we plan to stay there again.
We, four old school friends who meet up once a year rented this house as it was convenient for arriving from Malaga airport and visiting Seville and Cordoba. Brilliant communication and instructions from Mike from the outset. Clear instructions on how to find the house. Everything in the house to make our stay extremely comfortable and we all loved the accommodation. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.
This property in the charming town of Antequera far exceeded our expectations and Mike and Penny delivered first class customer service and hospitality. Its location is truly magical - at the foot of an ancient castle and the views are stunning. A short 7 minute walk into town and also close to nearby restaurants and tapas bars, tourist sites and the charming main street and squares of Antequera. The property is spacious, and comfortable and we were pleasantly surprised when we found some basic supplies left for us in the fridge (bread, cheese, jamon and wine!) and Mike was always avail for questions etc.
Overall a fantastic property and experience at Casa San Salvador. We look forward to our next visit!

Stayed in this lovely house for 5 days. Wonderfully situated for exploring the lovely town, and visiting the local bars. Made use of the out door air conditioning, as the temperatures rose to 30++. Met the neighbours at the bread van, that visited every morning. I am sure we will be back, perhaps when a little cooler so we can do more!!
The house has a great location - very peaceful, beautiful view and close to the town center. Located right at the edge of the castle.
The house is spacious and cosy. The courtyard and balcony are great places for relaxing, sun bathing and dining. The house is very well equipped - the only thing i missed was a sharp knife. It was also very clean.
I would definitely like to return!
I stayed at Casa San Salvador with four friends and the property met all our expectations. The house is situated in a quiet location, with lovely open views to the front, but with the advantage of being just a few minutes stroll from the nearest restaurant. We found the house to be well equipped, clean and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed relaxing on the sun terrace. I look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
