Overview

This is a very good mid-range villa, a pleasure cruiser with some of the facilities of a luxury yacht, making it attractive to those who want a well-designed property in a special location all to themselves.

Beautifully hidden away, yet just 2 km from El Gastor, the villa offers total privacy, tranquillity and superb Ronda Mountain views. It's positioned all on its own on a knoll which means views all around to hills, valley and the high peak behind.

The bright blue avocado of a swimming pool is delicious by day or by night, when the entire patio area can be illuminated and the pool has lighting, also.

The house is a new build and accommodation is modern rustic in style, typically open plan to suit the Andalusian Mediterranean climate. Some over-elaborate villas that we visit (not all make it onto our books) can give the sensation of intruding on someone else’s fantasy: what we liked here, on the contrary, was how we felt immediately at home. We think you’ll have a similarly positive feeling about the place.

The sitting room has a new sofa, a softly cushioned window seat where children always like to hole up, and a well fitted-out kitchen.

We always check the beds when we inspect a villa. Here they are extremely comfortable with new, viscolastic mattresses, and a double set of pillows (a nice detail).

The terrace furniture are quality wooden items, including a Balinese divan, and we were particularly taken with the double terrace arrangement: one, logically, is by the house, but there's another up a few steps from the poolside which has a proprietary view over villa, pool and hillside.

You can see in the photos what an inviting spot it is. You can look up the valley, survey the pool and enjoy something refreshing.

The barbecue is a well-made, brick-built affair that is available all year round, unless the forestry service imposes a local ban. You are simply asked to take great care with hot charcoal, especially in summer when the surrounding countryside is very dry. A sink alongside makes food preparation that much easier.

The massive stone that forms an extra table was hauled by the owner's father from the peak of El Tajo, pictured in the gallery. He is a charming man who will accompany you on a early morning trek up the peak, if he's free and you are game! The fact that the villa is owned and managed by a delightful local family is one of the main reasons it works so well: you are in very good hands here.

The property is totally private and has an automatic security gate.

This Ronda Mountains location is traditional Andalucia. It’s attractive, relaxed, and well connected by a new road linking Ronda with Seville. When you go to El Gastor village, you’ll find a sweet, well-kept white village where local people are invariably easy-going and courteous.

There are intriguing and exciting excursions from here. They range from a prehistoric local dolmen (akin to going on an ancient treasure hunt) to the handsome town of Ronda. Along the way are pretty white pueblos, rambling in glorious Grazalema Natural Park, a narrow gauge train through the mountain valley, a very special cave with prehistoric paintings, and country restaurants for eating out.

Outdoor activities include an exciting "hanging forest", as well as watersports on nearby Zahara lake.

YOUR REVIEWS

Malcolm | July | 2016

We had a super time at Villa RD39. It had a wonderful character and was perfectly located for trips to Ronda, Zahara etc. The pool was superb as was the raised viewing area - perfect for eating or sharing a glass of wine. The owners were there to meet us on arrival and were really helpful and friendly. The villa had good facilities - although it was a little thin on kitchen utensils etc. Generally though this is an excellent villa that we would definitely return to again."

Penelope | July | 2014

What a wonderful villa! We've stayed in many villas throughout Spain and France and this is certainly one if the best. The facilities, beautiful pool, and tranquil setting all made a perfect holiday. The Family are so friendly and everything that you need is provided -you literally need your suitcases and food! The location is great to visit several of the gorgeous white villages plus Ronda and Seville. We had a fantastic time here and will definitely return."

Penny | May | 2014

Just want to say a massive thank you from all us who stayed in RD39 for 2 weeks of fantastic scenery and sun. The villa was everything we could have wished for - a dream come true set in wonderful olive groves festooned with colourful wild flowers. It is one holiday that will live with us all forever. Can you also pass on our thanks to Antonio, Mercedes and Yolanda for keeping the villa in a top class condition and for also being so friendly and helpful. The villa and area made so much of an impression on us that we hope to return to El Gastor hopefully to the same villa in 2015."

Philip | May | 2014

We had the most amazing time at this wonderful secluded villa with stunning views and amazing flowers. We have rented several villas in Spain and this was by far the best. The owners were extremely welcoming on our first day.( then we were left completely alone for the rest of the week which we loved ) The villa was spotless and well equipped. Really hope that it's available next time we're looking. We would book it again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much for a terrific holiday!"
