Property description

• 5 bedroom ‘Casa Principal’, plus 1 bedroom private suite ‘El Nido’
• Spacious accommodation, perfect for large families or groups of friends
• Secluded and private, yet only 4 km/10 minutes drive from the highlights of Ronda
• Daily maid service included (14 hours/week)
• WiFi and UK TV

Originally a finca (a farm/ranch), La Cazalla stands seemingly-alone in a scenic fertile valley, just 10 minutes' drive from the historical and fascinating town of Ronda. The main house and surrounding buildings blend naturally into the landscape, having been built around the native rock. The private villa is surrounded by stunning scenery and is available to rent all year round. Perfect for families and large groups of friends of up to 12 people looking for a self-catering holiday in the Andalucia region.

This large villa was carefully and stylishly restored 15 years ago to reflect its Andalucian and Moorish history, retaining many ancient artefacts from the original farm buildings. The Casa Principal ('main house') has five spacious and airy bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, and is rented with ‘El Nido’ ('the Nest'): a private one-bedroom suite with its own entrance and courtyard. Nearby Ronda is the perfect picturesque base from which you can explore the pretty ‘Pueblos Blancos’ ('white villages') and some of the major cities of the Andalucian region, including Córdoba, Granada, Seville and Malaga, and the resort town of Puerto Banus.

La Cazalla is fully equipped with all the comforts you would expect from a luxury villa rental, but more importantly all the extra little things that will make you feel at home. We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a secluded, private retreat where they are completely at home, but with a few of the perks of staying in a hotel – beautiful bed linen and towels, daily maid service and a gardener who takes care of the pool and the grounds.

The main house is elegant, cool and spacious, with many different areas for a large group to spread out and relax. Discover three tastefully-furnished living areas on split levels, a kitchen and a dining room, providing plenty of space for your family and friends to read, play card games, watch a film or listen to music. Sleep soundly in the five double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms containing beautiful mosaic tiled walk-in showers with adjustable mood lighting. And yes, there is WiFi!

Outside there are so many different spots to choose from, you’ll be hard-pressed deciding what to do: read in the lounge chairs on the terrace, dine under the vine-covered pergola, swim and snooze at our Roman-inspired pool, look for tadpoles in the stream, stroll along to the 12th century ‘alberca’ ('water cistern'), or take a drink up to the old threshing circle and watch the sun change the colours of the gorge from orange to pink. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the deer as the owls start hooting.

The area around La Cazalla has barely changed since the Romans, and later the Moors, inhabited it. Once here a feeling of peace prevails: the sounds of insects buzzing, birds singing, bells jangling on goats in the forest and the breeze rustling the leaves on the trees. It is difficult to spot any other sign of human life, and yet the sense that man has lived in this valley for thousands of years is very strong.

Famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its centre, Ronda and the area surrounding it offer a multitude of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, mountain climbing, canoeing, birding, horse riding, paragliding, tennis and, on the coast, golf.

Holy Week ('Semana Santa') will take place from 9-15 April 2017, transforming Ronda with elaborate decorations, parades and music. May is a beautiful month with the spring wildflowers at their best and the 'Ronda Romantica' (a historical recreation of the Royal May Fair, founded in 1509). Early summer (May/June) is the best for outdoor activities, such as hiking and cycling the many routes of the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves. July and August are for exploring the narrow, shady lanes of the 'White Villages', lazing by the pool and enjoying relaxed meals outside late in to the evening. Late August and early September bring the drama of the annual flamenco festival and the 'Feria de Pedro Romero', the famous bullfighter, when the whole town join in the fiesta. Please check with us for exact dates in 2017.

We always welcome you with a few provisions (including fruits, nuts and samples of our own olive oil and jams, all from right here on the property!) so that you have something to eat and drink when you arrive and don’t need to go shopping immediately. Whatever the needs of your party, please let us know, and we will do our utmost to ensure a memorable stay.
