Villa Description

A warm, Andalucian welcome

This villa is of superb quality through and through. For all its grandeur, it is also full of warmth and heart.

This beautiful villa is only a ten-minute drive from Ronda's municipal sports hall (polideportivo) which is off a main Ronda roundabout, and is a very easy landmark to find. The drive to the house itself is through farmland, initially along a tarmacked track for three kilometres  and then a dirt road for a further two kilometres. The road is easy to negotiate with a normal hire car, there are potholes in a few places.

The track turns towards a hacienda-style mansion, the only house for miles around. Drive through the entrance arch  and the iron gates will be standing open onto an impressive cobbled courtyard. Although built in 2006, the feel of this villa is one of a traditional Spanish country house, with its terracotta pan-tiled roof, white walls, wrought ironwork  and antique doors, the welcome is classic Andaluz.

Fine dining

Built to the highest standards, no expense has been spared for decor, design and comfort.

Once inside, you come to the entrance hall with its encaustic coloured floor tiles and wooden stair case rising up in front of you. The atmosphere of style and opulence begins here and continues on throughout the house. Underfloor heating and air conditioning are in every room.

Directly on the left from the entrance hall, is the indoor dining patio. The dining table seats eight. The window ceiling of the dining room is clear glass and is constantly changing, according to the sky. The blue of the walls form part of the sky on a sunny day, and clouds are entertaining as they scud past above you. Windows from the upstairs rooms look down into the patio and tiles in blue and cream, like the entrance hall, decorate the floor. It really is a beautiful place to dine.

Romantic and exotic

Four double bedrooms are on the ground floor, decorated with Indian carvings and colourful textiles.

The first ground floor bedroom has a double four-poster bed with a wardrobe and views to the internal dining room and lawn outside. Each bedroom has its own controls for temperature and music. It's not en suite but shares the  bathroom next door with the second double bedroom (also with a four-poster). The shared bathroom has a full bath tub with mixer shower taps, wc, bidet, basin and a large mirror which reflects the gleaming white porcelain of the bathroom suite.

The third bedroom is another double with a four-poster bed and antique mirrors on the wall. Its window view is to the horse arena and countryside. Bedroom four is similarly decorated to the other three although its bed is not a four-poster. All these bedrooms have an eastern style.

Bedrooms three and four also share a bathroom which is situated in between them and identical to the bathroom for bedrooms one and two.

A convenient cloakroom is close by with a hand basin, wc and round and oval mirrors.

The living room is to the right of the entrance hall. It's sunny and bright and has views to the pool and countryside beyond. A touch screen panel here controls lights for this salon and the kitchen (the salon leads directly into the kitchen by carved sliding doors). Cowhide armchairs, and a leather L-shaped sofa are arranged facing an open fireplace. Music for the living room, indeed for all around the house, can be activated by iPhone for music of your choice. Wifi internet is provided.

A pool within a pool

The swimming pool is right in front of the veranda, it's so big it could almost be a small lake. The pool comes with its own jacuzzi!

The swimming pool in this house is an amazing 25 x 16m. It has a little bridge to the centre of the pool which is in fact a jacuzzi. The jacuzzi can be heated, so you can bathe outside in bubbling, hot water, even in winter.

Other facilities at hand are a poolside shower and a wood-burning oven for the best type of pizzas. As in the main house, music on the terrace can be programmed through an iPhone.

A gazebo is set a little further down from the pool, away from the house. It's a quiet place just to chill and watch the fantastic sunsets over the mountains in the distance. The landscape in which this villa is set is nothing short of breathtaking, both for its beauty and peacefulness.

Take five

Rest and relax in the comfortable snug. Warm and cosy, it's a private space for reading, snoozing or watching TV.

Another room leading off the internal dining patio is a very welcoming and cosy TV room. With its antique, carved doors, wood panelling and large picture window to the horse ground, it's a lovely room to relax in. The den has two two-seater sofas, an open fireplace, and is ranged with bookcases. The large flatscreen TV is set into the wall above the fireplace, forming part of the chimney breast. It's a wonderful place to hide away and snuggle down with your books, newspapers and laptop.

Just outside this den, is the training ground and stable for 'Noque' the horse. Noque is well trained and friendly and is available for guests to ride. He is looked after by Juan the caretaker who is the husband of the housekeeper, the delightful Ana. Ana is available to prepare breakfasts if required and provides assistance for any outside caterers.

Everything is of the finest quality

The kitchen has everything you could want and more. Catering is available on site if you'd like to be cooked for, for one day, two days or every day.

The semi-professional kitchen which leads directly from the living room is impressive, but homely too. The country style kitchen with pitched ceiling and exposed beams, has an island food preparation area with wooden work surfaces, white units and seven bar stools for taking breakfast. Facilities include an American style fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, electric oven and induction hob set in a granite worktop. Cooking pans, glasses, cutlery and crockery come in abundance.

The laundry room is next to the large garage. The washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities are here, as is another fridge/freezer plus a cot and high chair if they are needed.

From the kitchen there is direct access to an outside dining terrace with a circular table for eight. This covered veranda also has carved wooden sofas, made comfy with cushions, for lounging and drinking in the view of the pool and the mountains.

The journey to the villa is through picturesque green fields and woodlands with the Serrania Ronda rising up in the distance. In places, the track follows a pretty little river, there are small birds and birds of prey to be seen, this area is rich in wildlife. As you approach the villa, the surrounding fields turn into olive groves and encinas (Spanish oak) with marvellous views stretching out 360 degrees and as far as the eye can see.

A cute and cosy casita

This casita is so sweet. It's ideal for couples who'd like a little privacy, but there's space to entertain family and friends too.

A further bedroom is available in a separate two-storey casita, close to the main house. This cottage has a Swiss chalet feel, with its exposed ceiling beams and wooden kitchen decor.The first floor has a double bedded room with dressing table and picture window giving views to the beautiful countryside. The en suite bathroom has a large walk-in shower, basin and wc.

Below the bedroom is a kitchenette with restaurant-style seating in banquettes, arranged around four little tables. The idea is for groups of friends, staying in the main house, to be able to eat together with their friends sleeping in this little chalet. The kitchenette comes with a music system, fridge, 2-ring induction hob as well as cutlery and crockery (including fondue sets for an authentic Alpine evening).

At the movies ... at home

The rooms upstairs comprise two bedrooms, a home cinema and sauna. The rooms on this floor are softly carpeted for comfort, quiet and grateful bare feet.

Back to the main house ... the double bedroom suites (each with superior en suite facilities) are on the first floor, along with a home cinema and sauna.

The first bedroom suite has a double bed, built-in wardrobes and two Juliet balconies, one with views to the lawned garden,  the other with views to the horse arena. The bathroom has a free-standing roll-top bath with shower mixer taps, twin basins, wc and bidet. The chandelier light fittings add a touch of opulence as you soak away your cares.

The second double bedroom suite has extra space, large enough to accommodate a single bed, if necessary, perhaps for a child. In this space, a small tripod-mounted telescope is provided for guests to do a bit of star-gazing. The double bed has a carved headrest, built-in wardrobes and views to the entrance courtyard and horse ground. The bathroom has a state of the art full body massage shower, wc, bidet and basin.

The cinema has been designed for enhanced film enjoyment that's why it's decorated in dark, navy blue. It also has heavy curtains with carpeted floor and walls for soundproofing against the Dolby-digital surround sound system. A plushy, squashy L-shaped sofa is perfect for watching the movies of your choice. At the push of a button, the cinema screen comes down and then it's lights (off), camera, action!

Despite being out in the countryside, although difficult to believe, Ronda town centre is only a ten minute drive away. A trip to Ronda sometime during your holiday is a real must. With its rich fields, ancient past and spectacular vantage point, it's easy to see why Ronda has been a magnet for traders, poets and warring armies. Spend a day sightseeing here and you won't be disappointed.

For a different day out, the beaches of the Costa del Sol are an hour away and the natural beauty of the Grazalema national park is on your doorstep.

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 10 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.
