Guests about this villa

“De vakantie was erg geslaagd en het huis was prachtig, ideaal voor een familie van 11 personen. Met voldoende ruimte om samen maar ook apart te zitten. De tuin is prachtig en met de vele terrassen is er altijd een mooie plek om in de zon of schaduw te zitten. De eigenaresse was zeer behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Ronda en omgeving is prachtig en we hebben ook heerlijk gegeten bij restaurant El Muelle in Arriate en bij Almocabar in Ronda. Fietstocht met NL gids in Sevilla en de flamenco show van El Quinqué in Ronda was ook erg mooi. Kortom zeer geslaagd allemaal. Groet,”
