Topped with an imposing tower and gleaming with the bright white paint of its immaculately presented façade, this imposing country residence forms an eye catching landmark amidst the picturesque countryside that gently undulates in a scenic patchwork of fields and sierras just a 20 minute drive north of the historic town of Ronda.

Sitting within spacious grounds of wide lawns, shady retreats and attractive terraces, and surrounded by a wide expanse of rolling fields and rural vistas, this recently restored home provides the perfect venue for family gatherings.

Your entrance to its smart interior is via a neat terracotta tiled terrace, decorated with pretty walled flowerbeds and home to a stone table and benches that sit beneath a shady tree. From here, the main door leads the way into a spacious hall where exposed wooden beams, crisp painted walls and carefully chosen occasional chairs are a pleasing introduction to the beautifully coordinated and stylish rooms of what is a truly charming home.

Particularly appealing is the tower, added to the original building over the course of its restoration and set up as an informal reading room with windows on all four sides capturing the pretty rural views. Another attractive feature is the enclosed courtyard, which is accessed through a door at the back of the living room and offers another pleasant venue for outdoor catering.

Outside, a pretty stone pathway leads the way to the swimming pool which sits within a tiled terrace and is thoughtfully enclosed for added security. Just below, a wide expanse of lawn provides ample space for sunbathing or children’s play.

Ideally located for those wishing to explore this unquestionably picturesque area of Andalucía, Huerta Atienza is just a 20 minute drive from the famous gorge, ornate buildings and charming ‘pueblo blanco’ streets of the historic hilltop town of Ronda. A similar distance in the other direction is the pretty village of Grazalema whilst closer to hand, the village of Montecorto offers a local restaurant and shops just under 6km from the house.

  • Whilst there are four bedrooms, a maximum of 6 guests is permitted.
  • The internet connection is delivered by MiFi, which is via a mobile network device

Location of Huerta Atienza

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Huerta Atienza

See How the Cave Dwellers Live

Feel like a troglodyte in Setenil's streets of overhanging rock and cave-like buildings. This pretty town has some interesting historical monuments and good restaurants, many of them built into the mountainside.

Lunch is a Leisurely Experience

Have a long lunch Spanish-style in a traditional 'venta', with traditional home cooking and local produce.

Go Birdwatching with an Expert

See the 'real Spain' and the birds of the Serranía de Ronda at the same time, in groups of 2 to 4 people accompanied by an English expert. Suitable for beginners or knowledgable bird-watchers

The Whole Jerez Experience

Many of the wine cellars in Jerez include other attractions such as art galleries, museums, equestrian demonstrations and flamenco shows as well as bodega tours and wine sampling. Go for the day and enjoy the whole Jerez experience under one roof.

See Seville from the River

Take a boat trip along the romantic Guadalquivir River in Sevilla, before climbing to the top of the Giralda Tower for a bird's eye view of this beautiful city. Explore the historic Barrio Santa Cruz district on foot to see the flower-filled patios and tiny squares

Nothing but Nature in the Natural Parks

Drive for miles through one of the natural parks - Parque de los Alcornocales or Grazalema - without seeing another vehicle. But remember that you are likely to come across cows, mountain goats and deer, and they have right of way......

The Grandeur of Granada

Explore the old Muslim quarter of Granada city, the Albaicín, then wander around the Alhambra, which is one of the seven wonders of the world. Entrance tickets are timed, so you can book in advance and plan your day in this lovely city accordingly.

Ubrique: The Leather Centre

Ubrique is known for its leather industry, and the town centre is full of shops selling good quality leather items at very reasonable prices. Whilst there, sip a coffee outside the café in the tiny, picturesque main square and marvel at how the town seems to nestle into the side of the mountain which towers above it.

Malaga: The Picasso Route

See the house where Málaga's most famous son was born, then visit the Picasso Museum in the city's picturesque Jewish Quarter. All Málaga's main attractions are a short walk from each other in the historic city centre, or you can hop on or off one of the tourist buses to explore those which appeal to you most.

The Valley of the Vultures

Vultures get a bad press. Learn more about these fascinating birds by travelling through 'Vulture Valley' between Benaoján and Cortes de la Frontera, where you can pull off the road at a viewing point and read the information panels.

Sit Back in an Armchair in the Tower of Huerta Atienza

and soak up the lovely rural views that can be seen from the windows that line each wall of this elevated sitting room.

Go Walking in the Natual Park

The Grazalema natural park is idyllic for walkers, whether beginners or experienced hikers. As the park is a protected area, permits are needed for some walks but these can be obtained free of charge from park offices in El Bosque, Grazalema and Zahara. Go alone, or hire an experienced guide.

The Most Elegant way to Sightsee

Explore the historic centre of Ronda in a horse-drawn carriage, and imagine the times when this was the usual mode of transport. The carriage trips begin from outside the bullring.

Visit Roman Ronda

Visit the Roman ruins at Acinipo, a few kilometres outside Ronda. This was an important town which minted its own coins, and the theatre is still well-preserved. There are also the remains of a Bronze Age settlement at the entrance.

Stand by a Waterfall, Swim in a Lagoon

The Cueva del Gato cave and lagoon are on the road between Ronda and Benaoján. The waterfall flows all year round, and all attempts to build a dam have failed, because the water always finds a way out. The cave is thought to have been a favourite hiding place for bandits in the past, but its depths are now only accessible by very experienced and qualified potholers.

Hire a Bike

Hire a bike in Ronda and explore country lanes where cars rarely venture

Scenic Railway

Take the train from Ronda to Algeciras, and enjoy the spectacular scenery and views of the Moorish villages of the Genal Valley en route.

Music on a Summer Evening

Enjoy a concert in Ronda's open-air auditorium on a warm evening

Cave Culture

Why are bats so important to the eco-system of the caves in the Serrania de Ronda? Find out by visiting the Cave Museum in Montejaque, and learn how the caves were formed in this Karstic landscape.

Go Golfing

Play a round at one of the coast's magnificent golf courses; one of them, the Dama de Noche, is open 24 hours a day. And while you're playing, non-golfing members of the family can go shopping in Marbella's pretty historic town centre.
