Finca La Rana Verde
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
If you are looking for a holiday away from the stresses and strains of modern life, then this is the place for you! Your apartment overlooks the swimming pool, the garden with it's fruit trees and beautiful flowers and the mountains of the Serrania of Ronda. The sunsets are magnificent, the days are long and sunny and the nights are pleasantly cool even during the heat of the summer. We are just 10 minutes on foot from the little village of Estacion de Cortes de la Frontera where you will find little bars serving cheap, local food and friendly people. This is not a tourist spot so you will mainly hear Spanish spoken and you will see a side of Spain that no longer exists in many other places. The pace of life is slow and relaxed and everyone always has time to stop and have a chat and a beer. It's a great place to come to unwind.
You are just 30 minutes from Ronda and one hour from the coast if you feel like sightseeing. There is horseriding available very close by, we have bicycles for hire if you are feeling active and there are beautiful walks for all levels of fitness. You can take the train and stop off at one of the nearby white villages, enjoy lunch in a lovely restaurant and then hop back onto the train to come back and have a dip in the swimming pool.
We have three little yurts in the garden too but, all in all, we don't usually have more than five or six guests at any one time so you have lots of space and privacy to enjoy the gardens and the pool. We organise plancha nights with meats and salads in the summer so that our guests can enjoy a glass of cava and get to know each other. Generally, we find that our guests are independant travellers who like to divide their time between sightseeing and relaxing and, while they enjoy their privacy, they also like to meet other usually like-minded people from other countries and/or backgrounds.

The Andalucia region
The landscape of the Serrania de Ronda mountain range is dramatically beautiful; lush vallies, rivers of crystal clear water, soaring mountain peaks watched over by eagles and vultures, small 'white villages' perched on the mountain sides, magnificent cork oak forests and little wild pigs snuffling for acorns.
Cortes de la Frontera
This is a very special part of Andalucia; we are less than one hour from the coast with it's motorways and bustle and yet here it feels like a whole different world! People always have time to stop and chat, to enjoy a coffee or a beer with friends and just watch the world go by. If you like small, local bars with friendly owners, cheap simple food, and a relaxed pace of life, then this is the place for you!
There are lots of walks to do of varying degrees of difficulty, we have bicycles for hire, you can go horse-riding at the local stables or opt for a yoga or pilates class or perhaps a relaxing massage.

"A wonderful relaxing place to stay with wonderful convivial owners"
This is a wonderful base to explore the mountains and hill towns of Andalucia. The accomodation was extremely comfortable, especially the beds, and my 11 year old son enjoyed the experience as much as his parents. The pool is great, clean and a welcome joy when returning from sight seeing trips. The owners were full of useful trips and recommendations and extremely friendly.Especially enjoyable is taking the train to lunch spots - without having to drive. We stayed for a week and had an excellent holiday.

"Happy Holidays in Andalucia"
My Husband and I brought our young daughters to Cortes de la Frontera for a second time last september and are planning another trip this April, we have found Breda and her family wonderful hosts, their new property is fantastic, the kids loved the swimming pool area. We went horse riding in the mountains and explored on bicycles for hours on end. The Costa del Sol coast is only a 90 minute drive away so we had a few superb 'Beach' days too. I love the whole village atmosphere of the area and of cousre the amazing old city of Ronda is very close by train, about an hour, the train station is a 15 minute walk away. Can't wait to go back, so much more to explore. We stayed in one of the Finca's (self contained apartment) but next trip we want a Yurt, they look amazing. We were also lucky enough to catch a ''Feria'' a mini festival in the village with funfairs, bazzars, food stalls and much merriment.

"Amazing Andalucian Yurt Experience"
This was my second time visiting this part of the world with my family and we left as we did before with plans to return. Our hosts Breda & Thierry were outstanding in their hospitality and local knowledge, there are no shortage of day trips, family excursions and solo endeavours near and far to indulge in. Clean, friendly, peaceful and secluded yet near to plenty of bar's, restaurants and local shops, city shopping is only a train ride away, all well within our careful budget. We managed to get in some roman ruins, pony trekking and a halloween festival in our week in Cortes in between the lazing around in late summer sunshine. We will definetly be coming back again.
