Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our three-week stay at El Castillejo. Although we have holidayed in Spain several times, this was our first holiday - and first visit - in the Ronda area, and we had a great time. We were looking for a tranquil, relaxing country house with pool, privacy, and views, and El Castillejo provided all of this and more.... The house is just a short 300m walk from the village of Alpandeire, and has a great pool, wi-fi, fruit and vegetables orchard, very good inside and outside kitchens, and all the necessary resources and facilities for a relaxing, happy stay. Although close enough to walk to the village, the house and gardens are not overlooked at all, and offers great peace and privacy. Owner Santiago visits every 2-3 days to clean the pool, water the fruit and vegetable garden, and generally maintain the external area of the house and grounds, and is otherwise available via email or phone for any questions or potential difficulties. Santiago speaks some English, and we felt very able to converse using some English, a few basic Spanish words, and Santiago's phone app translator. I greatly enjoyed speaking with Santiago, and he is very willing to help and assist in any and every way. Santiago was born about 25km from Alpandeire, and knows 'everything' about the local area through his personal and working experiences. He is very willing to advise on anything about the countryside around the house, or the Ronda area, or the wider province. He can advise on places to visit, restaurants, etc... Santiago positively encourages guests to pick and eat the vegetables, herbs and fruits that grow in the gardens, including cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, onions, tomatoes, raspberries, lemons, limes, mint, etc etc... The local village - Alpandeire - has a bakery, a small general shop, and 2-3 bars. Many of the local villages are similar to Alpandeire, and all look beautiful in the mountainous environment. Most of the local villages have at least a couple of bars / restaurants, and the blue-washed 'Smurf' village of Juzcar is just 6km away. The larger town of Ronda is about 20km away, and this is where we shopped in supermarkets. Ronda is also a beautiful, historic town to visit for it's history, culture and amazing scenery. Although we ourselves spent most of our time relaxing by the pool, or walking or running in the local hills, or driving to the surrounding villages / Ronda, the coast and cities like Granada, Malaga, and Sevilla are not too far from the house, and

Fine house and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was a success and this was partly due to the fantastic house with a pool and lots of privacy. But also by Santiago: a good and very friendly host who gave us valuable tips and leaded us through Ronda as a guide to attractions.

He and his wife made sure that everything in the house, the terrain and the pool is very neatly and clean. And you can freely eat vegetables from the garden (huerta).

Tips:

EAT

La Casa Grande in Alpandeire: not super cheap, but delicious and refined. And…. at walking distance.

Bodega San Francisco in Ronda (just outside the ancient city gate: good food, low prices, nice spot. Sometimes all tables are occupied.

Restaurante Las Banderas roadside Ronda - Benoajan, 2 km before Benoajan: authentic family company, good food, low prices, friendly service The best sangria ever !! Handwritten bill by 'papa'.

SIGHTS

Granada Alhambra: Worth it! We had not booked in advance and therefore had no access to Palacios Nazaries, but that is only 5% of the whole. The tickets will then cost half the price of full access…

Ronda: lots to see. Some museums are free one day a week open, but the next week may again another day or another museum. Ask at reception of the museum worthwhile.

Very nice is a guided tour through Santiago. Price included! Only give him a Coke after the walk 

Setenil de las Bodegas: here the houses are built under and in the rocks. Park the car outside the city center, the streets are very narrow!

Sevilla: old center with many attractions. Park your car outside the city, with the Metro you step out right in the center. Ask Santiago details about parking.

Cádiz: beautiful coastal town, nice parks with tropical vegetation.

Gibraltar: a ‘must seen’. Park your car still in Spain, near the McD. Go walking across the border (don’t forget your passport!!) and take the regular bus to the center for a few euro’s. That’s the simplest and cheapest way. For a total package including cable car and museums you have to pay ten times more. Bus stands about 100 m. behind the border-office.

Charming house and pool for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 'El Castillejo'. The pool is a great size and the house was perfect for the four for us but it could easily host a larger family. Set in its own grounds it's brilliant for a nice relaxing holiday. Ronda is a great place, loads to see and do in & around the town. The house is set up great for kids, loads of lovely touches to make it a special place and lots to explore in the grounds. The twenty minute journey from Ronda to Alpandeire has some fantastic views.

Santiago is the perfect host - a lovely guy. Always happy to help if required and he went as far as tour guiding us around the area a couple of times. It was a great privilege to be able to help ourselves to the organic vegetables from the house gardens.

Great value for money, we would highly recommend this quirky house.
