About Lisa and Mark Ruddock
Mark (a former Royal Air Force and Emirates Airline pilot) and Lisa (Retail Consultant to the Royal Family of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates) were delighted to discover their perfect home in La Cazalla de Ronda. Having searched Europe in a motor home accompanied by their five dogs and a cat called Nelson (due to his single eye), they walked in to the Tajo del Abanico in Ronda by chance with their dogs and when they saw La Cazalla it was love at first sight. Owners of the property for several years, they continue to dedicate themselves to thoughtful improvements and homemade gifts with which to welcome their guests, and are always happy to discuss their guests requests. We are highly responsive to email enquiries and can be reached at email@example.com or by telephone on +34 608 502 083 or +44 07968 02565. We speak English, Spanish, French and a little German so please feel free to call us or send us an email with your phone number and we will be happy to call you.

Why Lisa and Mark Ruddock chose Ronda
There is something in the air at La Cazalla... or maybe it's in the ground, or the rocks, or the ancient trees, or in the water that flows from the spring, or in the sound of the birdsong...there is something here that touches the soul of everyone who visits, calms them, soothes them. We would rather be here than anywhere else in the world.

Summer and the Feria at Magical La Cazzalla
The villa is stunning! Everyone should experience a place as magical as La Cazzalla at least once. There are so many hidden treasures to discover and the villa tempts you to sit back and enjoy nature, life, and the beauty of Ronda. Lisa and Mark set the standard for hosts, going above and beyond to provide guests an incredible vacation experience. They not only provided us outstanding meals, but helped with a medical situation, went out of their way to pick up some paella pans for future Spanish cooks, and had answers to all our questions on Ronda, Spain, and life in the Andalucian country. The only regret is not spending all seven days of our stay at the villa. While day trips to Granada, Seville and other white hill towns are fun...nothing beats a day experiencing the tranquility and beauty of La Cazalla. I look forward to returning and sharing the magic with family.
Little bit of heaven
Our stay at La Cazalla was delightful. It is one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen and definitely the most enjoyable property I’ve rented. Lisa and Mark do whatever they can to accommodate you and make your stay lovely. We were a group of ten and had lots of space for group time or alone time. I recommend hiring Lisa and Mark to make a paella dinner on the terrace. Also enjoyed meals on the terrace by other chefs. I would love to stay at La Cazalla again. It was truly a little bit of heaven. Thank you Mark and Lisa!
A magical time at La Cazalla, Ronda
There aren’t enough words to capture adequately what an amazing vacation this was. I was celebrating my 60th birthday with 7 of the most important women in my life. Being in Spain was a marvelous experience from start to finish. La Cazalla, our villa rental is stunning, every exquisite detail inside the house a delight to the senses and a reflection of our terrific hosts Mark and Lisa Ruddock. The grounds are breathtaking, with marvelous vistas everywhere you turn. Being at La Cazalla filled every member of our party with a deep tranquility that our regular lives back home too often deny us.
It was Lisa and Mark though that helped make this holiday the wonderful one it was! They infused our time there with kindness, generosity of spirit, excellence, and professionalism, bringing every part of our planned itinerary to glorious life. My birthday dinner party and an Afternoon Tea party a few days later were so beautifully executed that I was moved to tears. Lisa completely captured the magical experience I was trying to deliver for my daughter, sisters, sister-in-law, and cousins. La Cazalla, the property provided the rest, with a unique ambience all it’s own.
All of our planned excursions to Seville, Ronda, Marbella and Tangiers went off without a hitch thanks to Lisa’s helpful guidance and transportation arrangements. We all agreed that Mark, a skilled chef in his own right, made the best Paella we’ve ever eaten! Our stay at La Cazalla ranks as one of our most memorable vacations ever and we hope to be back again sometime soon.
Amazing experience! Relaxed and family friendly environment! We all enjoyed our stay!
Lisa and Mark were extremely helpful before, during and after our stay. The villa is perfectly located, at a peaceful countryside, yet convenience to the nearest town. The villa is beautifully designed and decorated and we all had some lovely family time. The kitchen is well equipped and had some nice BBQ too! We would definitely love to revisit the place again! By the way, Mark’s cooking skill was great, we all enjoyed the delicious paella :-)
Outstanding property in fabulous location
We had a fantastic holiday at La Cazalla and I cannot thank the owners Lisa and Mark enough for all the care and obvious attention to detail they took to ensure the property not only met our needs, but exceeded our expectations. We were a large, noisy group of ten adults, with ages ranging from twenties to early sixties, with a seventeen month old toddler too. I have booked numerous properties over the years and this is by far the best I have ever been to. The space, layout and range of facilities ensured that everyone could find a quiet area when they wanted it, but enough communal space to eat indoors, outdoors, up by the pool, or to wander off in the extensive grounds. The scenery surrounding the villa is spectacular, with numerous easy footpaths to follow. Lisa and Mark live nearby, which was a real bonus. they were around when we wanted advice, or even to borrow a recipe book. They are extremely friendly and helpful and having Christina there every day to clean was a real bonus, so too was the lovely gardener who provided fresh produce for us to try. The swimming pool area was amazing and far enough away that our little one couldn't wander there on her own. It is a beautiful pool to swim in and having a fridge in the pool house meant cool beers were always to hand. I would love to visit La Cazalle again soon. although it is a bit of a drive from the airport, it is well worth the journey. Many thanks the Regester family.
Amazing Property in a Stunning Location
When we arrived at La Cazalla our breath was taken away by the beauty of the location, and the villa was a match for its surroundings. Lisa and Mark, the owners, went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were there for a week, and many of us barely left the villa for the whole time -- it was that enjoyable! The pool was particularly appreciated for cooling off as the weather was very hot during our stay. We'd definitely recommend this villa to anyone.
