Hacienda Los Olivos enjoys a most enviable location. Set deep in the countryside yet only 10 minutes' drive from Ronda itself the property has been extensively renovated with great care and pride by a very thoughtful owner.

It is reached by an unmade country track winding through a landscape of mature holm oak trees and olive groves which surrounds the property. The spacious, mature gardens are home to a large private swimming pool, a tennis court and a lovely barbecue area alongside the pool.

Internally standards are just as high with quality fabrics and pretty hand painted local tiles used in the décor. The open plan living room has a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar just to one side.

Two twin bedrooms and a shower room complete the ground floor accommodation while upstairs there are two beautifully decorated bedrooms, one a double and one a twin, each with their own en suite bathroom. Both upstairs bedrooms open onto a sun terrace that runs the length of the house, from where there are superb panoramic views across the olive trees and the open countryside towards Ronda and the surrounding hills.

Please note:  When the small party rate is paid, two of the four bedrooms will be prepared.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Hacienda Los Olivos

Pueblos Blancos

Ronda provides a very good base for the white villages of the Serranía de Ronda. The first visit could be to the nearby town of Arriate, famous for its pork products. The local ham, cured in this ideal mountain climate, is exported throughout Spain.

Setenil

From Arriate, drive towards Setenil de las Bodegas. This is a spectacular village with houses built inside the mountain.

Explore Granada Further

But Granada is not just the Alhambra, the city itself offers further delights: the ancient Albaicín quarter, the Royal Chapel adjoining the cathedral and many lively little squares, pulsating with energy.

Go for a stroll

Ronda retains its Spanish flavour in the evenings which is the best time for a walk along the gorge. The sunsets are beautiful.

Sunday Market

Every Sunday there is a market in the new part of the town, behind the football stadium. It starts at 09.00 and finishes at about 14.00. Go early for the best choice - the fruit and vegetables sold there are very good.

Serranitos

Another area with lots of bars and off the tourist area is Plaza de San Francisco, in the old part of the town, by the old town walls. There are many bars there, although the best one is Bodega San Francisco. Try serranitos, a delicious small sandwich with ham, pepper and tomato.

Go to the Foot of the Gorge

You cannot leave Ronda without going down to the bottom of the gorge. Cross the gorge and drive along the narrow road until you come to the old walls of the town. Turn right, then right again at the bar called Bodega San Francisco. Now simply go downhill.

The Most Relaxing Way to Keep in Shape

Have a game of tennis in the evening and work up an appetite for a delicious supper on the terrace overlooking the pool.

Visit a bodega

Some excellent wines are produced by 'bodegas' in the Ronda area and some bodegas offer guided tours and wine tastings. Ronda also has a wine museum where you can sip a glass as you wander around the beautiful old building and discover the history of wine production in the region.

Classic Flamenco Guitar

If you are a fan of classical music, or even just fancy a taste of some real Spanish music - Celia Morales is a classical Spanish guitarist who performs small and intimate concerts in her academy in Ronda.For anyone not exposed to Flamenco guitar, the performance was an eye-opening display of virtuosity, and the music was representative of the best of Flamenco -- full of passion and colour.

Explore the area on two wheels!
