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!
The house itself is very spacious and has nice touches of Moorish design. It was very well equipped with everything we needed. The grounds are well laid out, well planted and cared for. In the hot weather the swimming pool was a treat and there was plenty of shade around the house. The location suited us well. Arriate is a very nice town with cafes and shops. We enjoyed having tapas at Manolo's especially. The location is very quiet and peaceful and also very convenient to Ronda, which lived up to expectations. We were able to make short drives through beautiful country to see some of the famed white towns. We enjoyed a great presentation of cante jondo at Museo Lara too. Noemi and her parents were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Thank you!
