Overview

The villa is situated at the end of a country lane, a short drive from Ronda town and just outside the attractive village of Arriate.

The lane dwindles down to an end at a large parking area, where the traditional façade of the large property hides a modern, 7-bedroomed interior and masses of outdoor terraces. There are sunloungers by the house and also by the pool.

You're nicely secluded here, a good distance from neighbouring properties, and it's very quiet.

The grounds spread out from the rear, comprising fields and orchards and an old water course. A private, gated garden path leads to a broad, grassy bank, where the salt-filtered swimming pool is a perfectly peaceful place to look across at the house in open countryside and enjoy swims in natural surroundings. There is a lawn and children’s playthings here.

The property is divided into two conjoined wings, connected on both floors and outside, and has the signal advantage of providing a double set of living and cooking facilities for a large group of people.

The main dining room can seat 14 people together for meals indoors and outside there are a choice of furnished spots for dining al fresco.

The style of the property is tidy, refreshing and uncluttered. Beds are comfortable and have 100% Egyptian cotton sheets.

Doors lead out to impressively large pebbled outdoor spaces, where you can relax in sun or shade, cook on the barbecue, or wander across a little bridge to where the grounds continue to grassed areas and the pool.

Four-bedroomed West wing:

Has its own entrance to a covered terrace, looking out onto countryside, a shady spot to enjoy meals at a long dining table with cushioned seating.

The spacious, smart kitchen is fitted with all mod cons.

The colour scheme is a slick, pale grey that continues into the living area. Here, comfortable sofas are ranged round in an open space illuminated by plenty of natural light though double-glazed windows and windowed doors out to the main terrace at the rear.

Divided off by a staircase up to the bedrooms is the main dining room for the property, tiled in terracotta, which also has terrace access.

Elsewhere, floors are smooth stone, marble, or the polished cement that is fashionable these days in summery Andalusian villas.

The West wing's four bedrooms are upstairs, where a railed gallery runs round the top of the staircase and opens onto a Juliet balcony.

The terrace is spacious, has good views and a cushioned area where you can lie back in complete repose.

Three-bedroomed East wing:

Entrance is via an internal patio to a kitchen with a breakfast table for six people. The kitchen is more modest in size and style than in the East wing, but the facilities are similarly good. Adjoining the kitchen, there is also an extra dining area provided with an American pool table.

It's self-sufficient as a house in its own right, including generous, furnished outdoor terraces. The house is refreshingly cool in summer thanks to the thick, original walls and terracotta flooring.

An archway opens to a very inviting living room, flanked by sofas on three sides.

Upstairs are a landing and three bedrooms, carpeted with woven esparto.

Guests in this East wing share one bathroom. For the bathrooms on the other side of the house, please note that the upstairs interconnection passes through a bedroom.

Outside at the villa, your family or families can join together to dine and sit in different areas according to the time of day and the position of the sun. There's oceans of private and shared outdoor spaces here, furnished dining and sitting corners, a pergola, a vine-shaded barbecue.

A cobbled terrace is graced by the considerable height of an old palm tree. Fig and wisteria, roses and walnut, are well-established. Guests are welcome to pick sage and rosemary from the herb garden to condiment meals.

The swimming pool is a 1-minute walk away, just opposite on a terraced bank. To reach it, you walk down to a gate and then up the other side. It’s not a steep climb up and the position keeps any playful pool-related noise at a gratifying distance.

The pool is a long and has salt-filtering for chlorine-sensitive eyes. There's lawn at either end.

The villa is a good choice for holidays with children. There are no hazardous drops and near the pool are a children's playhouse, swings, slide and other playthings.

The main staircase can be gated and water softener makes tap water suitable for drinking.

The property grounds are bounded by a river and irrigation channel which keep the area water-fed in summer, but are not accessed by guests.

Ronda, just 10 minutes away, is a major reason why many people choose this villa. The opportunity to visit the famed town combines very agreeably with a relaxing holiday home in the countryside. The sights, tapas bars and restaurants of Ronda are worth more than one trip into town.

On arrival at the villa, you will find a complementary starter pack of basic food and drinks. And if you don't fancy driving into Ronda for supplies or eating out, there's no need. Your local village of Arriate (5,000 inhabitants) is only a couple of minutes up the road (or 15 minutes walk). There are supermarkets, café-bars and restaurants, a favourite being situated by the train station, where its broad terrace has a bright mountain view. The attractive small town with a little river promenade is well known as a proactive community. Among its several annual fiestas, often musical events, is a two-day outing for senior citizens at the invitation of the local council.

In addition, local boxes of fruit and veg can be delivered to the house, as can a full shop ordered online from a superstore: very handy.

A general clean for an hour a day is included in your holiday rental and extra hours can be contracted locally.

Local activities include hiking and cycling trails, tennis, horseriding and there are interesting excursions to mountain villages, caves with prehistoric paintings, El Chorro lake district and Grazalema Natural Park.

Massage, yoga and pilates are also available on request.

YOUR REVIEWS

Sarah | July | 2016

A beautiful property with space and shade. Perfect for a large group with lots of little nooks to be secluded, and large communal areas too. Only complaint would be that the pool is a bit small. Its a family home so very well kitted out."

Gretchen | July | 2016

The villa was beautiful inside and out. It was a place you could be on your own ( there were a multitude of seating spaces) and together as a group. There were 10 of us together and we never felt 'on top of each other' but could cook and eat together. The location was ideal as we could visit touristy areas and then return to our 'Spanish villa' . We truly fell in love with the villa and our host Gabriella for whom nothing was too much trouble."
