Property description

Lovely 3 bedroom villa (sleeps 6) in a delightfully remote, countryside location surrounded by cultivated farmland and Mediterranean forest. All modern conveniences and decor is warm and cheerful. Private fenced off pool. Bedroom 1 and 2 with double beds. Bedroom 3 with twin beds. Two complete bathrooms, one en-suite with shower, the other with bath. Open plan kitchen, dining, living room. Modern and fully equipped. Washing machine (placed in bathroom).
HD Television with all the Spanish channels up to date (some can be set to bilingual audio). Shelves full of books and guides (in Spanish, Dutch, English and French). Original prints, photos and paintings on the walls give the place a personal touch.

The Spanish/Dutch owners live in the valley as self-sufficiently as possible, running a (certified) organic vegetable and fruit garden and breeding geese, while offering their holiday home to nature lovers, families, bird spotters, hikers, peace seeking couples and anyone who looks for a relaxed place to spend their holidays.

Access to the house is through paved country roads (with exception some 200 meters in the middle). At the end a sharp curve and steep descending slope, accessible to any type of car.

Ronda, just 8 km away, Ronda is one of the most beautiful cities of Andalusia, steeped in history. It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of the province of Malaga. This mighty promontory ensured that Ronda was an impregnable fortress for the Christian armies until the end of the Reconquista. The plateau is split in two by the gap, 'El Tajo', and is the natural separation between the old and the new Ronda. This gap is spanned by a stone bridge, Puente Nuevo and once housed a prison underneath.
All visitors to Ronda are staring with disbelief down into the deep gorge, and then often unconsciously shivering step back a little!

The shopping area of ??Ronda, where some of the traditional shops still maintain, is located in the new part of town.
However, the most enchanting walks can be found in the old town where the Moorish and Roman atmosphere can be inhaled in every street corner.

Nearby village of Arriate provides with banks, small supermarkets and other stores that you need on a daily basis. This charming village is also known for its cheap & cheerful tapas bars. Since 2012 we now also have a very good and affordable restaurant located in the old depot house from the train station.

Ronda lies very central to all the cities which are worth visiting and can easily be travelled in one day, such as Cordoba (Mezquita), Granada (Alhambra-book well in advance!), Seville (Giralda and Reales Alcazares), Malaga (Picasso Museum) and Gibraltar and Marbella/Costa del Sol..

Car: Recommended

This cottage is situated in a quiet valley that breathes stillness and has a very peaceful feel to it. The owners grow an organic vegetable and fruit garden alongside the house. You will be 'off the world' but still within walking distance to the lively and pleasant village, Arriate, and only 15 minutes away from the historic town of Ronda. The old centre of Ronda, has both beauty and history. An inspiration to many, it is one of the most visited towns in Andalucía. Very central for day trips to Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Jerez or Malaga. Summers know long warm days and cool nights. And in winter you will breathe the crisp clean air of the Ronda mountains, with its many surrounding natural parks, such as Parque Natural de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves.

Many beautiful white villages in the surrounding area and the 'Route of the White Villages' is one of the most favourite day trips.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: Francisco was born and raised in Ronda. He knows the country very well and is a passionate lover of nature and organic farmer. Lies is Dutch and came from Amsterdam to live in Andalusia in 1995. Both their son Santiago was born in 1998. Francis and Lies try to live as self-sufficient as possible. Francis maintains and processes the gardens, while the Lies rents out the, for this purpose built holiday home. She will also do the odd jobs and is dedicated to art photography. This house is ideal for nature lovers, families, birdwatchers, walkers and anyone looking for a relaxing place to spend their holidays. And to make communication a lot easier Francis speaks English while Lies fluent Dutch, Spanish and English speaking, can express herself reasonably well in French and understands German and Portuguese (but speaks less fluently!)

Why Ronda, Málaga, Spain:
When they came to live in the valley in 1999, it was a bare plot of land only used for breeding goats. But they immediately recognized its potential and fell in love with the peaceful tranquility that the valley breathes. While trying to make a living and raising their son, over the years and step by step, they have tried to develop the place to be a perfect holiday spot for everyone from all over the world who looks for comfortable holidays.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The valley has a peaceful and a very rural feel. You are 'off the world', but within walking distance from civilization. And because you are surrounded by an organic vegetable garden, you can profit from the availability of all seasonal homegrown produce. The fascinating city of Ronda is centrally located for trips to Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz, Malaga and the Costa del Sol. Summers know long warm days and cool nights. And in winter you breathe the fresh clean mountain air of Ronda. A big plus for families with small children as the pool is securely fenced. Moreover, it is home to small children prepared with toys, books, cot and high chair and little 'fragile decorative objects '..
