The best villas we have stayed in over the past five years - the managers were as wonderful as the property itself!
Location - outdoor space even in cool, rainy weather, it was delightful - the overall layout and comfortable feel of the entire place.
Peaceful, beautiful gardens and landscaping, secluded without being far removed from Ronda and other places we wanted to visit.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Ronda - would have been a long and possibly traffic-congested walk - the drive was just fine and quick.
Tips or Restaurants:
EVERYTHING is provided for you at this villa!
We did bring our own Tide laundry pods and our own peanut butter - but the villa had detergent available...and we don't like Nutella which seems to be the only nut butter available anywhere we travel in Europe!
The tricky part in the directions for us was where we were to turn off of the main road from Sevilla - we misunderstood the turn after the blue lodging highway indicators and ended up on the wrong road...but we did have our own GPS and knew we were within five miles of the place and a few inquiries got us there!
Check In Out:
Caroline and Robert were very welcoming and helpful...and had a welcome basket that far exceeded any expectations bread, cheese, meats, butter, wines, crackers, etc. etc. All went extremely smoothly at both arrival and departure.
Finca Ronda is an estate of 3.5 acres of mature olive trees and beautiful gardens, consisting of three separate villas, all of which are available to rent: The rental property is a ten minute drive from the ancient town of Ronda, one of Andalucia's most interesting cultural and historic centers. The surrounding area, the Serrania de Ronda, encompasses beautiful scenery: lakes, towering mountains, pre-historic gorges, and spectacular vistas. It is an area of many contrasts and rich diversity. Between Finca Ronda-Villa Alba and Finca Ronda-Villa Sol there is a natural green fence, but since the houses are only 60 m apart, each is visable from the other. Finca Ronda-Villa Adora is further away and completely isolated from the other two.
