Villa description

Finca La Dehesa is a very private and peaceful country villa. Already when you enter on the two kilometers long driveway you will notice this is the retreat of an artist: you will discover intriguing garden sculptures around every corner.

The 120 hectares of private land surrounding the villa guarantee lots of privacy.

The old Cortijo has been carefully restored to its former grandeur.


Once at the villa you will be amazed by the utter silence in this private valley. All the land surrounding the villa, almost as far as the eye can see, belongs to the property. It is fantastic to walk around this private land. There is a shaded area at the entrance with plenty of space to park you cars.

At the entrance to the house is a large authentic Era (threshing area).


The Era is bordered by colourful flowering Mediterranean plants and fragrant herbs.

Through an arch you arrive at the large front terrace covered by grapes. The wonderful half-shade offers a pleasant coolness on the warmest days of the year.


The patio to the front of the house is covered by old vines.

This retreat is so peaceful, it is hard to believe that the famous Ronda, with its Moorish history, its lively shopping center and its many tapas bars and restaurants, is just a short drive from here. A pleasant surprise is that it is only a few minutes walk to a lovely country hotel nearby with a good restaurant. The hotel is immediately at the end of the driveway of the villa (1.7km), at the beginning of a small white village.

Very peaceful and secluded, yet a good restaurant and white village nearby.


You will be amazed by the peace and quiet at this lovely villa.

The enormous terrace to the front of the villa is shaded by a massive old walnut tree.

This is a very pleasant area to sit down and relax on a warm summer day.

It is a joy to relax in the shade of the massive old walnut tree.

Steps lead down from the terrace into the lush garden. Further steps lead down to the lovely pool area. The enormous pool (10 m round, 1.50 m deep throughout) is completely private. It has plenty of sunbeds for sunbathing. Here you can forget the world and enjoy the landscape, the sun and the silence.

Broad roman steps lead down from the terrace to the fabulous pool area.

The property has been carefully renovated by its owners in a comfortable yet rustic style, making excellent use of the spacious areas of the old farmhouse, without losing any of its authenticity. Base elements of dark wooden beams and terracotta floors have been stylishly combined with antiques and artifacts from all over the world.

FINCA LA DEHESA the living area

The living area is spacious, stylish and utterly comfortable.

The living room is huge; it has a high ceiling with a minstrel gallery, which adds to the immense sense of space. You will feel at home though, it certainly does not feel too big. It has a comfortable couch and armchairs. There is satellite TV with DVD player, radio and CD/tape player. A large open fire adds to a castle like feeling.

It ensures a pleasant atmosphere for an occasionally colder evening.


The impressive fireplace is sufficient to heat the whole living area in winter.

The open plan kitchen and the cosy dining area form a natural extension from the living area. The amazing kitchen is mainly made in antique wood, decorated with lovely antique pots and pans thus fitting in seamlessly with the living area. It offers all facilities like a 5-ring hob, oven, fridge, and dishwasher. A separate utility room houses another fridge-  freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

The rustic-chic kitchen is designed for the discerning cook.

Taken as a whole La Dehesa is ideal for a group of eight, but it is also a charming property for smaller groups or a couple who like to have space and privacy. There is a wealth of things to do in the area be it walking, riding, visiting historical sites or simply visiting the many ‘White’ villages of the area and investigating numerous tapas bars. It would not be surprising however if you might choose to relax by the pool and enjoy the charm and comfort of the property in this unparalleled peaceful valley.

Finca la Dehesa is hidden in its own private valley.

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.

Guests about this villa

“Het was weer een genoegen, prachtig ruim huis, in goede staat en fijn restaurant naast de oprit. Ieder zijn smaak, maar van ons hadden al die kille LED tuinlampjes niet gehoeven, de sterren en de maan zijn te mooi. Maar er zijn veel erger dingen en we gaan binnenkort weer boeken voor zo’n fijn weekje, groeten”

Beste Ina en Henk ter Avest, September 2017

Beste Ina en Henk, Goed om te horen dat het weer helemaal fijn was. Ik zal meteen even doorgeven dat ze wat aan die lampjes moeten doen…Kan het me helemaal voorstellen. Graag weer tot de volgende keer! Maaike, Vida Rustica

“The villa was one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed, it was perfect for us in so many ways – the location, the art and the house itself and its contents. Our sons spent a lot of time cooking up delicious food in the kitchen which we enjoyed on the terrace outside. We would very much like to return to Finca Dehesa at some point with our family. Best regards, “

Mirjam en Milko Meijer, September 2016

Hartelijk dank voor jullie fijne feedback. Heerlijk dat jullie er zo van genoten hebben. Wie weet nog een keertje over doen (als we het huis voldoende geheim kunnen houden)?! Graag tot een volgende keer, Hartelijke groet, Maaike

“Het huis was adembenemend zo mooi, en zo heerlijk om in te verblijven, de privacy is enorm, je voelt je daar echt weer even helemaal back to basic maar dan met alle conform en luxe die we gewend zijn, maar met de rust en natuur om je heen van vroeger. 1 dag hebben we bijna besteed om het huis te bewonderen zoveel te zien, kunst, oudheid en vooral smaak! wat een mooi huis!

We zijn zelfs 1 ochtend gewekt door een hert vlak bij onze raam, ondanks het tijdstip zijn we opgestaan om een glimp van hem te bemachtigen maar bij het aanzetten van het licht was hij ( zoals een hert betaamt) al vertrokken…..en hoorde we hem direct al weer verderop!

Zwembad was ons favoriet en daar hebben we dan ook alleen maar gezeten en intens van genoten, heerlijk. In 1 woord Geweldig! Isa is Super, wat een heerlijk mens, gastvrij en niks is haar te veel. We zijn als “friends for Ever” uit elkaar gegaan, en zullen hopelijk elkaar daar nog wel een keer treffen. De oprit naar het huis, was wel even een dingetje vond ik, maar ja wat wil je? je kan moeilijk op zo’n mooie plek geasfalteerd aankomen rijden.

Hotel Molino del Santo aan het eind van de oprit was ook super, en heel lekker, ook daar hebben we leuke contacten gemaakt! Uiterst vriendelijke mensen. In onze week was er Feria in Ronda en vielen we ook nog eens dus met onze neus in de boter! Ronda is zeker de moeite waard. Kortom, SUPER en we zullen zeker t.z.t. daar naar toe terugkeren. We hebben vida Rustica al flink gepromoot bij onze vrienden, wie weet gaan zij ook een keer richting een van jullie mooie paradijsjes..Hasta la proxima…groetjes,”

Ernst en Amparo, September 2015

Beste Amparo en Ernst, Wat een heerlijk verhaal! Fantastisch dat jullie zo van het huis en de omgeving genoten hebben. Daar worden de eigenaren en wij op onze beurt ook weer helemaal blij van. Heel hartelijk dank, zeker ook voor alle promotie bij vrienden en bekenden….dat is de beste reclame die we kunnen krijgen. Graag tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rústica

“Wir sind gestern zurück aus Andalusien. Ihr vermitteltes Haus war ausgezeichnet. Ein Kunstmuseum!

Ganz lieb war Isa, obwohl nur spanisch sprechend war die Verständigung mit “Spanisch- und Englisch” kein Problem. Sie ist bezaubernt. Vielleicht richten sie ihr dies nochmal aus. Wir würden uns freuen.

Das Haus war einwandfrei. Gar nichts zu beanstanden. Sauber, alles vorhanden. Ronda und Umgebung ist allemal eine Woche wert.

Falls sie eine Bewertung wünschen: Wir tun dies gerne positiv, auch wegen der ungewöhnlichen, schönen Vorankündigung (Prospekt zur Reise) von Ihnen!

Liebe Grüße zurück aus der Wirklichkeit,”

André und Ines von Ossowski, August 2015

“Wir waren in der Zeit vom 2.8.14 – 8.8.14 in der sehr schönen Finca La Dehesa und verbrachten dort einen fantastischen Urlaub. Wir waren 6 Urlauber und alle waren sofort begeistert von dem schönen Anwesen und dem wunderschön eingerichtetem Haus. Allen hat es dort sehr gut gefallen und wir konnten uns super erholen und entspannen. Auch der Hausmanagerin Isa gilt unser Dank. Sie hat uns super beraten und macht einen großartigen Job.

Vielen Dank für den schönen Urlaub und liebe Grüße von allen.”

D. Dostleben, August 2014

“We hebben enorm genoten, wat een droomhuis! Dit jaar zal het niet meer lukken maar volgend jaar zullen we ongetwijfeld weer een beroep op jou en het huis doen. We hebben met z’n vieren besloten dat dit ons vaste plekje wordt om zo af en toe eens tot rust te komen en samen te zijn wanneer mijn zusje en haar man af en toe in NL zijn. 

Warme groet,
