Andalusian holiday villa near Ronda, Spain
Ronda, Andalusia, Spain
Additional Location Information
The villa is located 1.5 km away from the charming, rural village of Arriate and 8 km from historic Ronda. Ronda is situated 90 minutes by car from the airport of Málaga, 50 minutes from Marbella and the Costa del Sol, as well as 1 hour and 30 minutes from downtown Sevilla. The scenic Serranía of Ronda is well-known for its magnificent views, its beautiful hiking trails and the famous white mountain villages. In addition, one can reach the Alhambra in Granada in under two hours (155 km) as well as Córdoba in just over 2 hours (200 km) by car. Gibraltar and Algeciras are 100 km away, and the endless Atlantic coast beaches of Tarifa up to Cadiz, one of Europe's most famous windsurfing resort, can be reached in 2 hours. The region provides over 40 of Spain's finest golf courses, some of which can easily be reached in under 50 minutes.
Golfing and general tourist attractions:
The property is surrounded by over 30 of Spain's finest golf courses on the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz many of which are reachable in less than 50 minutes by car. Some of Europe's most important cultural cities such as Córdoba, Granada, and Sevilla can easily be reached for enjoyable and extraordinary sight seeing excursions. These cities offer historic sights of incomparable beauty as well as an opportunity to meander through charming, narrow streets, and visit fine Andalusian shops, tapas bars and restaurants. In addition, one can drive through Spain's unique Sherry wine regions of Jeréz and Sanlúcar, visiting such famous Sherry bodegas as Domecq, Gonzalez Byass, Lustau, Hidalgo and many others. While there, visit the famous Domecq Horse Show. Not far away is one of Europe's most intriguing bird sanctuaries, The Doñana National Park, a protected reserve and a popular attraction for nature lovers. A day trip to Tangiers, Morocco with a visit to the fascinating and colorful local souks is only a few hours away by taking the high speed ferry from Tarifa.
If you don't plan on spending too much time traveling by car, you can choose among many local, charming destinations such as the magnificent, nearby village of Setenil de las Bodegas with its breath taking gorge in and around which this Andalusian village was built or the Roman ruin of Acinipo with a well preserved amphitheater and stunning views of the region. Or you can take the scenic mountain road towards Algeciras to the lovely village of Gaucín, one of the most attractive gems among Andalucía's White Villages.
Other recreational activities:
The beaches of Costa del Sol are situated along one of Europe's most formidable summer resorts including Marbella, Puerto Banús, Estepona, and Sotogrande on the Mediterranean Sea. On the Atlantic side, the endless, white sand beaches frequently have steady winds making this area ideal for wind and kite surfing. One of our favorite beaches on this side is Bolonia, where you can also visit its well preserved Roman ruins Baelo Claudia.
If you love horses, we can help you plan a morning ride through the area's beautiful scenery. If you plan to travel in early spring, consider the highest snow peaks of the Iberian Peninsula located in the Sierra Nevada, very close to Granada, with some of Spain's best ski slopes. Although at least 2 and a half hours away by car, you can still plan on arriving at the slopes before noon and returning home for dinner. Sierra Nevada has over 90 km of well maintained, tree-less ski runs, some of which provide breath taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
