Very clean property, lovely host who was very helpful and very friendly if approached, but also allows guests to enjoy their holiday undisturbed if wished. Birdsounds only. Really quiet, peaceful retreat. Lovely views. Pool lovely. Dogs friendly. Well placed for visiting Andalucia. The upstairs bedroom is large, and gated so safe from the stairs, but not enclosed, so noise travels from/to upstairs. This didn't concern us at all but might bother others. Beds comfy. Well stocked kitchen and larder. Homemade jam lovely. We would like to go back.
We had a lovely relaxing time at El Olivar with our three children aged 10, 8 and 5, and my parents who are in their 70s. The villa catered beautifully for everyone. The main point to note is that this is a seriously stylish property. The owners are masters of design and the result is a chic, modern and incredibly comfortable place to stay. Everything is perfect. The interior is a mix of function and beauty without compromise to either. Every small detail has been thought of. Outside is equally as stunning, not only because of the design features but also because the view is incredible. The villa is set in a valley bowl and the surrounding area has hints of Tuscany about it. I will not forget the sight of a hot air ballon floating towards us from Ronda! The pool was sparkling clean (as was the whole villa) and the gardens are lovely. Lots of places to sit and eat or drink. The bamboo daybed is fabulous.
You do definitely need a car for this villa as it is very remote. Ronda is a bit of a drive away. It is a place to totally relax and kick back. We came back refreshed and ready to get back to real life. Thank you for an enchanting stay!
