About the property

8 Bedroom Country House In Quiet Valley With Onsite Stables And Stunning Views

An authentic Andalusian country house with riding stables and private swimming pool set in a beautiful valley below the historic cliff-top town of Ronda, Andalusia, Southern Spain. The whole house is furnished with interesting horse tack, paintings, awards and posters.

The main house has 8 comfortable bedrooms (each named after a separate piece of horse-riding equipment), all with en-suite bathrooms, their own small refrigerator and stunning views of the valley and mountains of Ronda. On the ground floor is a baroque-style dining room with seating for 8 people and a comfortable living room with an open fireplace.

Attached to the house is a large dining room with a bar and the capacity to seat 20 or more guests. The kitchen is set behind the bar for the ease of serving large groups of people. Alternatively, the internal courtyard, decorated with horse-related objects, has tables and chairs for al-fresco dining.

The courtyard leads to a large swimming pool with sunbeds, shades, an outdoor shower and breathtaking views of Ronda, and the surrounding valley and mountains. The stables and training area are located nearby and beautiful horses can be seen in various paddocks around the property. Classes and hacks can be arranged in advance - simply contact us for more information.

Enjoy peace and tranquillity amongst the horses with the town of Ronda only a 10 minute drive away. Ronda is full of interesting attractions, including the incredible bridge, hundreds of restaurants and bars, and there are always fiestas and festivals happening. It's the third most-visited in Andalusia (after Seville and Granada) and is a 1 hour 30 minute drive from Málaga airport, or 2 hours from Seville or Jerez.

The town of Ronda is so special - a busy town that retains its village-feel, full of community spirit with a laid-back, friendly Spanish vibe. The Puente Nuevo (the 'new' bridge, completed in the 18th century) is the biggest draw for tourists, both for it's stunning architecture and breathtaking views, either straight down 100m into the gorge below or out towards the mountains on every side.

Ronda is also home to one of the oldest bullrings in Spain, where every year at the beginning of September a festival and the sole annual bullfight take place. There are museums, ancient Arabic baths, hundreds of restaurants and bars, and plenty of shops selling beautiful locally-crafted products.

Ronda is at 800m altitude and is surrounded by protected natural parks, including the stunning Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema - both popular with hikers and offering mapped walks. There are many 'pueblos blancos' nearby to visit, each with its own character and charm.
