Further details indoors

Villa Casa Sonana is one of the finest villas for rent in Andalucia has 4 large ensuite bedrooms such that the villa can accommodate 8 spaciously.

Each bedroom has its own character, design and views. Importantly, they are comfort personified with blissfully relaxing Scandinavian beds and crisp cotton sheets. It's important that you have sweet dreams – "sueños dulces" – in our beds. The rooms are quiet havens of peace and relaxation. Each bedroom is furnished in an individual style and has its own private balcony or direct access to the gardens.

All rooms have special LED lighting, large fitted wardrobes, automatic blinds, integral mosquito nets, and luxurious jatoba wooden floors.

El Jardin Bedroom

'El Jardin' is on the ground floor. With a delightful iron bed this is a large comfortable room with a divinely comfortable double bed. The wrought iron of the bed, the luxurious white of the furniture and the missoni bed-throw create a contemporary elegance. 'El Jardin' has two patio doors, leading out on to the terrace with views across the pool to the Sierras Ronda and Grazalema in the distance.

El Rio Bedroom

This is a delightful twin room with subtle tones of slate, grey and aubergine. With its own large private balcony with terrace and views to the river and the fields and olive groves beyond. As with all the ensuites, El Rio's bathroom is modern and spacious with walk-in shower and its own distinctive tile design!

Las Salinas Bedroom

Las Salinas is a twin bedroom with wonderful crisp white furniture against the dark jatoba floors. Its private balcony has wonderful views out onto the Sierra de Las Salinas opposite. The ensuite in this room is large with a wonderfully big bath in addition to the walk-in shower. The soft uplights in this ensuite give it a special atmosphere.

Las Vistas Bedroom

This is a large and luxurious double and master bedroom. There are 180º degree views from this room – the private balcony allows you to relax with a drink as you watch the magnificent sunsets over the Sierra Los Cumbres opposite. The dressing area adjoining also has floor to ceiling windows with views to Sierra de Las Salinas and the window opposite your bed gives you the Sierra de Grazalema.

The Living Space :

Not many luxury villas in Andalucía are designed with the same attention to detail as Villa Casa Sonana. The spectacular Andalucían scenery is key throughout the luxury Spanish villa and as such it has been designed with large open spaces, with double height ceilings, wall to wall glass, and balconies from each room. Large terraces provide beautiful views of the olive trees, forests of the neighbouring hillside and the spectacular Sierra de Ronda.

Off the living area is an intimate sunken dining area and a fully equipped modern kitchen. The sunken dining area provides an indoor spot to eat and still see the views that surround the house.

The kitchen is decorated in wenge wood and has all that you would need if you are looking for inspired cooking! From the large gas hob, to the dishwasher to the ice and iced water dispensing fridge – the aim of this space is be a place where you would be comfortable cooking – or comfortable watching people cooking!

The living area and kitchen open up on to the terraces as if it was all one space. As you enter the terrace, all you may hear as you gaze out to the olive groves in the distance are the tinkling of the bells of neighbour Jose's sheep and the rustling of the eucalyptus trees from the stream at the bottom of the garden. The terrace is the ideal place to spend much of your long, lazy day at the villa. With Pizza Oven, BBQ and large communal table you needn't move …. apart from to go the few steps to the large swimming pool.

In the winter, there is no need to pine for the summer sun as warmth is generated by an open fire and under floor heating throughout the house.

Further details outdoors

Villa Casa Sonana is set within it own 7 acres of private land, surrounded by our own olive grove and the amazing Andalucian countryside. The views encompass Villa Casa Sonana from every angle. The garden is manicured and offers several shaded areas by the large 10 metre pool and the smaller children's splash pool. On the terrace, you have a built-in BBQ along with a pizza oven. The large terrace sweeps around the front elevation of the Villa and this hosts the dining tables where you can enjoy dining al fresco. Casa Sonana also offers an organic orchard with over 16 various fruit trees, figs, almonds, sharon fruit, plums, cherries to name just a few - and you are welcome to help yourself to the fruit in season.

Further details

Our rentals are on a weekly basis, however, we do consider rentals for lesser time - just email me to get more information. Villa Casa Sonana guests also get access to the exclusive 'guest-only' area of our website, where they can get a whole load of information about the villa and the local area, much of which they wont find in the local guidebooks - this is unique to Villa Casa Sonana's guests.

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is a fascinating place for its spectacular Moorish monuments, beautiful white hill towns, sparkling blue coast and natural beauty of its mountainous country. The Moors were a mixed race of Berbers and Arabs that occupied Spain (Al-Andalus) for almost eight hundred years. They developed the most sophisticated civilization in the Middle Ages, centered in Seville , Cordoba and Granada . Every city, town and village, is a wonderful mixture of Christian and Muslim influence. Granada preserves the most beautiful Moorish monuments, the Alhambra palace, being the largest and most sensual building in Europe. Córdoba's old mosque with a cathedral built inside it and the spectacular remains of the ancient Moorish city of Medna Azahara shold be regarded as a mustsee whislt Seville boasts the most spectacular of all Gothic cathedrals and largest church in the world as well as its Moorish Alcazar.

The white towns surrounding Ronda , offer an unspoiled view into Andalucian life with their surrounding natural beauty, delicious home-cooking and stunning appearance-clustered beneath Moorish/Christian castles and churches. There are some terrific walks in this area.

The mountains in the Sierra Nevada and, less known, the Sierra Morena [particularly its western projection in the Sierra de Aracena offer good trekking and skiing, while the coast between Tarifa and Cadiz on the Atlantic has some of the best beaches in Spain. Beware of Europe's most developed resort area on the Costa del Sol as it is hard to find peace and natural beauty, without paying a high price. Finally, Spains largest and most impressive nature reserve, Coto Donana, can be found near Cadiz .


Ronda is 6 km from Villa Casa Sonana, and is a fantastic real Spanish city, offering you everything when you can drag yourself away from the relaxation at Casa Sonana! It has history, culture, shopping, great tapas bars and restaurants, childrens activities, the oldest bullring in spain, the former holiday city of Ernest Hemmingway & Orson wells. The first week of each September Ronda hosts their annual Feria - a truly spectactular traditional fiesta celebrating its history and the city comes alive with local festivities.

Nearer to the Villa, you have Arriate, your local Pueblo Blanco, and if you want to experience "The Real Spain" then this shouldnt be by-passed. It offers you everything you need from shoe-shops (the cheapest in Andalucia also!) to local fish, meat, vegetable shops. Some of the best tapas bars in the area and full of locals who geninely want to welcome you to their Pueblo. It needs to be explored and by doing so you will get a real slice of true Andalucia Pueblo lifestyles.

"Five star experience (again)"

Hola ! Feliz Ańo Nuevo! Delighted that you had another great time at Villa Casa Sońana, and we really appreciate these 5-star comments. Our goal is to offer a 5-star villa, so delighted that's what we deliver. Your comments on the pricing are 'bang-on'. Best Prices are indeed directly from our website. Companies such as TripAdvisor, Flipkey etc, have introduced some challenging commercial terms which means that we have to offer higher prices for enquiries through these channels as their commissions are killing small businesses such as us. So definitely, spread the word, "Book Direct For Best Prices!" Thanks again and best wishes to you all for a happy and prosperous 2015. Saludos :) Jill.

It would be our pleasure to welcome you all back, and please just contact me personally when you wish to do this.
