Great traditional Andalusian "cortijo" at 5 minutes from Ronda, perched on cliff over the river Guadalevín, and with stunning views of Ronda. Recently refurbished and very fresh in the hot months, the house has 2 living-rooms, 5 double bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, and a dining room seating 12. The formal garden around the house has a water reservoir with fresh spring water that functions as a swimming pool and measures 8x8 m.
The house is constructed on 2 floors. On entrance level, there are: a large living room with a fireplace, tv and access to a large terrace with lovely views of the countryside; an ample and fully equipped kitchen with a dining table for 8-10; a dining-room seating 12; 2 double bedrooms each with its own bathroom; a bedroom with 2 beds and another 2 extra beds; and another independent bathroom. On the lower floor are: a large family room with a tv; and 2 double bedrooms each with its own bathroom.
In front of the house there is a large terrace with a pergola and dining tables for 12.
Around the house are lovely formal gardens, with impressive views of Ronda.
This country house has a stunning spring water pool (an “alberca”) measuring 8 x 8 m. and that originally dates from the XII century and was built in Arab times. In the old days the alberca was the main source of water for the house, and it is only filled up with the most natural water coming straight from the mountains surrounding the estate. We preserve its original and ecological conditions by only adding the most natural products available. As you will see the water is tremendously fresh and invigorating. We hope you enjoy this marvellous spring water pool as much as our ancestors! Next to it is a terrace with comfortable deck chairs.
The Guadalevín river runs below the house, and its clean waters are inviting for a beautiful and refreshing swim.
The property has 2.450.000 m2 of stunning landscapes, which offer the opportunity for long hikes, bicycle tours or walks on horseback through virgin nature.

This house belongs to the family of my friend Soledad since several generations. As I have experience renting out my own house, and speak several languages, they have asked me to give them a hand with the rentals of the house. I am of American/Dutch/German/Argentinian origin, and have been living in Madrid since 1990.
Viveca purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1920

By far the most stunning and expansive rental we have found. Set in acres of private woodland, streams and hills, we were able to walk through a stunning landscape without even leaving the estate. Bedrooms beautifully decorated and beds were large and comfortable. This is a magical home for large groups. The view of the house from the driveway is spectacular. We very much hope to be back. Many thanks to Viveca and Salvador, the lovely groundskeeper that helped with our flat tyre and also lent us his paella pan. Overall a fantastic experience.
Sublime location and rustic grandeur
Delightful old farmhouse nicely renovated with jaw-dropping views of Ronda and the magnificent countryside. The pool was empty and it's really not a five min drive (closer to 15), but everything else was better than expected. Salvatore the groundskeeper was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a great walk on the surrounding lands. Would love to return
Fantástico cortijo, la vivienda esta perfectamente acomodada y confortable. Los exteriores son fantásticos y la finca esta en un entorno único.
Gracias por vuestra atención y servicio.
El cortijo está ubicado en el interior de un bosque mediterráneo con un denso y bello arbolado atravesado por dos riachuelos de aguas cristalinas, ideal para paseos y excursiones. El equipamiento interior es muy completo. Hay calefacción en todas las estancias. Muchos dormitorios tienen su propios cuarto de baños. Todo está limpio y reformado pero sin perder la solera y el buen gusto rústico.
Salvador el guardés, es muy amable y servicial, y respetuoso de la privacidad.
Además se encuentra a sólo 10 minutos de Ronda por lo que su ubicación es magnífica para visitar la ciudad.
Como consejo en invierno, solicitar que enciendan la calefacción con bastante antelación a la llegada del primer día.
Sin duda lo recomendaré a mis amistades.
The house is situated in a virgin landscape, but at only 5 minutes from Ronda. The immediate surroundings, including the extensive property itself, are ideal for long walks, bike rides or horse rides. The town of Ronda, dramatically sitting on top of a cliff overlooking the surrounding hills, has a lovely old center and a great variety of interesting monuments and museums, amongst which one of Spain's most beautiful bull rings. It also has many excellent restaurants, lovely bars, etc. The closest beaches are around Marbella (San Pedro de Alcántara, Guadalmina, etc.), a 45 minute drive over a spectacular road with breath-taking views of the Serranía de Ronda.
