Out and About

Apart from the truly stunning scenery around Ronda (Serranía de Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves, Park of Grazalema, Zahara lake etc.), there are numerous remains of ancient civilizations in the area, including some of Europe’s most beautiful cave painting in the Cueva de la Pileta.

Ronda’s spectacular Puente Nuevo spans the deep canyon that divides Ronda’s old and ‘new’ quarters, and there are Moorish palaces, Renaissance mansions and Andalusia’s best preserved Arab baths.

Within a 2 hour drive are Seville, Granada and Cordoba. And close to Ronda are a series of enchanting ‘Pueblos Blancos’ clinging to spectacular mountain locations. At a 45 minutes drive are good beaches and golf courses. Even a day trip to Morocco is possible from Tarifa on the Fast Ferry, which crosses the Strait in just 40 minutes.

Guests about this villa

‘The villa was absolutely beautiful, with a great location providing both a level of isolation and great views of Ronda. The housekeeper was very friendly and very helpful when we found ourselves with a flat tyre on a national holiday. The only thing I would warn visitors about is the state of the roads leading to the property, we were fine in a SUV but I would not have wanted to arrive in a small hatchback.’

Rachael and Guy Dormer, October 2018

Dear Rachael and Guy, Thank you so much for your feedback! Great to hear that you have enjoyed the villa and the area to the max. The roads in the area have deteriorated a lot lately, due to the exceptional weather this year. The extreme rain this autumn, caused even more problems. It will take a lot of time to repair all the damage done. I am glad that you had rented a SUV! Looking forward to advising you again a next time, Best wishes, Maaike, Vida Rustica


“We all had a very enjoyable stay at Casa de los Dolores. Salvi was there to greet us and gave us a very warm welcome. She explained everything about the house very clearly and even escorted us to the main supermarket area by a more direct route than that described in the house brochure, which was much appreciated. She was very anxious that we should feel happy and relaxed and stressed that we could call her at anytime should we have any issues or questions.
The house was very clean and well equipped and also comfortably warm throughout our stay. The weather was especially kind to us and we were able to enjoy a number of long walks in the surrounding mountain ranges and National Parks as well as visits to Ronda itself.
We were very impressed by the way you communicated with us and organised our stay. I really can’t think of any suggestions for improvement. Best wishes,”
