Villa Description

All needs catered for

"The villa had everything we could have wished for our family holiday, even with a 15 month baby in tow! Thank you".

One of three superb villas on a wonderful, 3½ acre countryside estate, this lovely property is, like the others, completely private and self-contained with its own entrance, driveway, gardens and swimming pool.

Accessed by a quiet country lane, it is just ten minutes west of Ronda in the beautiful Llano de la Cruz valley. To one side are spectacular views of the Sierra de Ronda and to the other a beautiful vista of fertile, undulating farmland.

Features of the estate include extensive landscaped gardens, mature orchards of olive and citrus, walnut and almond, quince and medlar, as well as a beautifully maintained garden surrounding each villa. There is also a vegetable garden, fish pond and a fountain.

Apart from the very occasional passing of a small-gauge railway which runs close by, there's nothing here to disturb the countryside peace and harmony.

Soaking up the sunshine

"This is the most comfortable holiday villa we have ever stayed in. There was a lovely homely atmosphere and an extremely well equipped kitchen".

The villa is completely hidden from the others by graceful trees, foliage and fencing. There is covered parking for two cars at the end of the driveway. The villa's own landscaped, lawned garden is a real delight, colourfully planted and featuring an irresistible 10 m x 5 m swimming pool.

Simply relaxing here, soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine, taking a refreshing dip or two in the pool, this is the perfect holiday antidote to the stresses of modern life.

Children will love it too, it's a wonderful play area. There is a pool house with a barbecue and a pretty, shaded pool terrace for al fresco dining.

Another long, covered terrace alongside the house faces the gardens and pool, providing an alternative venue for outside dining in the evenings.

A haven to rest in

"If anyone wishes to find a haven to rest in, while exploring the stunning scenery in the mountains beyond Ronda, this is the place".

Inside, the villa is spacious and tastefully decorated. All on one level, the sitting room / diner is a large, light and airy space, attractively furnished, with views across the garden and pool. French doors open to the terrace.

The house has electric night storage radiators and an open fireplace to keep you snug in winter; all rooms have overhead fans to keep you cool in summer. Other facilities include a TV (for DVD and video playback), a CD/Radio and an extensive video and DVD library.

The well proportioned, fully fitted kitchen has all mod-cons including a four hob burner, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.

The three large bedrooms (one double and two twin bedded) each have their own en-suite bath or shower room. They are stylishly and thoughtfully furnished and, with their duvets and electric blankets, each offers warmth as well as comfort.

It was a wonderful week

"I have no hesitation in recommendng this villa as THE place to stay near the very beautiful Ronda".

Just ten minutes from this haven of rural peace and tranquillity, Ronda, known to locals as the "The City of Dreams" has a fascinating history and a character to match.

An ancient hill town, it straddles the almost vertical, extraordinary Tajo Gorge which plunges to a depth of more than 150 metres.

The oldest part of the town, the original citadel fortress of the Moors, lies to the east of gorge, a labyrinth of winding streets with ancient mansion houses, churches and enchanting little squares. There are breathtaking vistas from many of the bars and restaurants out across the gorge to the surrounding mountains.

The newer part of the town began to grow when the famous bridge was finally completed at the end of the 19th century. This is a bustling area of small shops, bars and restaurants and the site of Andalucia's most famous bullring.

The perfect place

"Beautifully equipped with everything you could need. The gardens and pool providing a wonderful place to relax and spend time with family or friends".

To the east of the town is the pristine Sierra de la Nieves National Park, recently declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve, and to the west is the Grazalema National Park, a really beautiful mountainous area, home to some of the most diverse flora and fauna in Spain. A series of pretty, traditional pueblos blancos are all within easy driving distance. The walking and bird watching here are amongst the best in Europe.

So, there's plenty to do around and about. Whether you want to explore the wonderful nature, breathtaking vistas and first class hiking of the National Parks, discover the culture and traditions of historic Ronda, explore the enchanting villages or maybe venturing further, to Sevilla or the coastal resorts of Puerto Banus, San Pedro and Marbella, there's something for everyone.

And what better, at the end of a lovely day, than to return here to your own little piece of Andalusian country paradise!

For two or more families wishing to holiday together but wanting a degree of independence from one another, the property can also be rented in conjunction with one of the other two villas on the estate.

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

Excursions

  • For trips out, you are spoilt for choice. Hemingway's favourite town in all Spain, Ronda, with its extraordinary gorge dividing the old and new quarters, is just 15 minutes away. With its mansion houses, quaint narrow streets, museums and art galleries and Spain's oldest bullring, it is well worth visiting.
  • La Costa del Sol with its wealth of sandy beaches, sun, fun and nightlife is an hour further south from Ronda. It's a very spectacular trip, too, crossing up and over the Sierra de las Nieves before descending to glitzy, glamorous Marbella and a very different world!
  • Here you are on the doorstep of the Grazalema National Park, one of the most beautiful tracks of mountain anywhere in Europe. Jagged peaks, gorges, chasms, faults and caves, underground rivers and deep canyons are interspersed, here and there, by some of the prettiest villages in Spain - Grazalema, Zahara, Setenil and the other famous "pueblos blancos".
  • On the wide, blue waters of the Embalse de Zahara (it's a reservoir but you would never know), you can swim or just enjoy the beautiful views all around from one of the little bars which open up in summer on the lake shore.
  • Take the dramatic little mountain road from Zahara which climbs high into the mountains and on to Grazalema. From here you can head west, crossing right over the magnificent sierras, thickly forested with cork oak and Spanish fir, to Arcos de la Frontera on the other side.
  • For something completely different, Sevilla takes less than 2 hours. It is impossible not to be captivated by its exuberant atmosphere: stylish, confident, ancient and proud, yet also convivial, intimate and fun-loving. If you don't know what alegría means, Sevilla is the place to learn!
  • Spain's unique sherry wine region (Jerez and Sanlúcar), is well worth a visit, enhanced no doubt by stopping at one or two of the famous bodegas along the way! Jerez de la Frontera is 2 hours.
  • Cádiz (2¼ hours) continues to evoke the romance, intrigue and mystery of centuries of trade (some legal, some not so) between Europe, Africa and the Americas.
  • Beyond lie mile upon mile of magnificent white beaches on Spain's Atlantic coast, La Costa de la Luz.
  • Córdoba and Granada are both 2½ hours drive from here.

Activities

  • There are few better places in Europe than the Sierra de Grazalema to enjoy walking and hiking. We recommend "Walking in Andalucía" by Guy Hunter-Watts which includes six fabulous walks in the nearby countryside. The wonderful mountain terrain is equally facinating for twitchers, especially for spotting the big raptors. There are various guide companies in Ronda offering everything from one day caving adventures to hiking and bicycling trips.
  • The adventurous may want to try their hand at hang gliding or paragliding from Sierra de Lijar, just up the road at Algodonales. The village recently staged the World Paragliding Championships and is home to a number of paragliding schools with courses for beginners as well as tandem flights.
  • Horse trekking can be arranged at local stables.
  • Bicycle hire is easily arranged in Ronda. There are excellent cycle ways in the area including the Via Verde which runs along an abandoned railway line as well as far more challenging tracks for mountain biking.
  • Different water sports are on offer on the Zahara lake. Swimming is also possible at a number of secluded coves along the lakeside.
  • There is no more thrilling way of viewing the Ronda mountains than from a balloon. End your once-in-a-lifetime flight with a champagne breakfast overlooking Ronda’s old town.
