The location was central but neatly tucked down a cobbled back street in the old town of Ronda. Definitely recommend the area and apartment for an interesting Autumn break.

They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, including the loan of clothing because we forgot to take knitwear. Can't wait to return and just chill out amongst the olive groves and the sheer tranquillity of the setting. Awesome.

It's nestled in the narrowest of streets just underneath the castle in Gaucin. Tony the owner, come out to find us, and left us to settle in, yes the welcome pack was excellent. The website pictures don't really do the rooms justice, the sitting room has three large settees and plenty of space for a family. It also has a very large tv, which wasn't working that well while we were there, and if you had youngsters I would check ( nothing is too much trouble for Tony, so I'm sure he will get it sorted ) The bedroom on the top floor is also much bigger than it looks on the website, and the bed is enormous. Views from this floor are stunning. The village is very friendly, we had locals helping us manoeuvre the narrow streets and parked cars ! There is a good supermarket, with a lovely friendly butcher. Also a wine shop,,which was very reasonable, and if you HAVE to have English products were cheaper than supermarket. Several good bars, where you can enjoy Tapas,and plenty of restaurants. You really don't need to leave the village if you don't want to. The spiral staircase was tricky,especially carrying BBQ stuff up to the top floor ,but we got the hang of it, and believe this is going to be replaced shortly anyway. There are several sitting out areas, all with stunning views, sun loungers and rattan furniture. The pool looked deeper than it was, and for me it was cold, but would be welcome Im sure in the hotter months. The sitting out area by this is quite small, and the beautiful Bougainville and Jasmine were rather dwarfed by the Ivy. We didn't spot the pool shower until the last day ! Small niggles : Huge tv, no English channels. BBQ up the staircase, would have preferred it outside the kitchen. Biggest Niggle : There was a very noisy water pump in the house, which came on every 15 minutes. To start with it didn't seem that bad, but latterly at night it was a nuisance. Would we go back ? Absolutely !!
