The Andalucia region

The countryside around Ronda is surprisingly green - so if you enjoy walking then the area around Ronda is great.

There are many, "must see" day trips from Ronda:

Granada: Here you can find one of the wonders of Moorish Spain - the fortified palace of the Kings, the Alhambra. Which offers a breathtaking insight into Moorish civilization.

Seville: The bustling capital of Andalusia, offers the largest gothic cathedral in the world - surrounded by the intimate cloisters is the Alcazar Palace.

Cordoba: Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir river, here you can embrace the remnants of three distinct empires - the Roman bridge, an arch built for Philip II and the La Mezquita.

Cadiz: This ancient sea port claims to be the oldest city in western Europe.

Jerez: The main sherry region is close by - here you can visit a vineyard or one of the famous riding schools.

There are also many, "white villages" in the Serrano De Ronda, which offer an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the cities. Beach resorts are about 45 minutes (Marbella) away by car.


The place that Earnest Hemingway called, 'the most beautiful town in the world', is Rich with history.

Ronda's origin lay in prehistoric times. In its earliest history Ronda was inhabited by the Celts. At about the time of Christ the Romans were the rulers. On the outskirts of the town is the Roman stronghold of Acinipo with its ancient amphitheatre. After the Romans the Arabs brought prosperity, and named it, 'Madinat Runda'. There are many examples of the Arabic legacy throughout the town.

The bullring is the oldest in Spain and the largest in the World. The famous bullfighter, Francisco Romero, revised the corrida to fight the bull on foot with sword and cape instead of on horseback. His grandson, Pedro Romero, is Spain's most famous and revered matador, killing 5,600 bulls in his lifetime.

The other famous landmark is the New Bridge that crosses, El Tajo. Built during the Catholic period it connects the old city with the new.

"The highs and lows of Santa Cecillia"

"Excellent location in the middle of Ronda with plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance"

Spacious apartment with excellent roof terrace and views. Would suggest a washing machine for longer rental opportunities.

Many thanks for your comments!

"Very pleasant apartment in great location"

This apartment has 1 small bedroom, pleasant sitting & dining rooms, bath, & an adequate sized (and well equipped) kitchen. Clean and light, with comfortable furniture, and a small roof terrace with a view of the top of the church in the casco Antigua. Only 2 blocks off the main pedestrian mall on the "newer" side of old Ronda, & 5 minutes walk to the Puente Nueva, it is close to restaurants, shops & all the tourist sites, plus grocery shops, etc. Didn't need the a/c in Sept, but checked it's utility (there are stand alone units in bedroom & sitting room) - works well but would be somewhat noisy. The only downside was the internet service in the apartment which is based on a mobile phone network and is VERY expensive and glitchy. If you really need net access, go to one of the restaurants with Wi-Fi or to the internet café 3 blocks away. Ronda is a great place to visit & explore and this is a fine base for one's stay! We enjoyed the week there.

Many thanks for your comments - so glad to hear that your visit to Spain from the USA was enjoyable!

"Worst ever stay, anywhere..."

Not impressed at all. Very misleading advert & description. The roof terrace had a single broken, dirty lounger so lying down in the sun was impossible. The very small tv had no signal and only 2 dvds… More

Many thanks for your comments. We were very surprised to hear of your experience especially because so many guests over the previous 10 years have enjoyed their stay in our apartment in rural Spain. They have only occasionally mentioned minor problems. Nevertheless, prior to your review we decided to offer a refund and initiated an investigation into the issues.

Following this investigation we can confirm that at the time of your stay in July, the terrace was supplied with 2 brand new sun seats; the sun lounger was broken and has since been recycled. We agree the TV is small and has since been upgraded and the aerial renewed. In the lounge there is a black case with a selection of approximately 15-20 DVD titles – for those that speak Spanish, we also recommend the DVD shop up the street; Video future. The apartment has Wi-Fi (Mi-fi) but you have to request a dongle from us prior to your arrival, which allows access; we have since changed this access procedure to avoid confusion. The air conditioning unit has now been replaced; however, there was a spare portable unit in the lounge which is modern and quiet. Having lived in hot climates, a sensible tip in the night is to use a combination of timed air-conditioning and also utilise the less noisy portable fans. On a personal note, when we have stayed in Ronda (the town of dreams) our issue has been getting out of bed in the mornings, having slept very soundly. With regards the smell, occasionally an egg like smell wafts from the Guadalevín River that runs through the town; this is probably caused by the anoxia and algae, which feed off the high nitrogen levels due to the agricultural runoff in the local area. Finally the ants; yes we agree you do get ants in rural Spain and every year when we stay in the apartment in Ronda, we do not leave any food victuals on the work top – especially sugar or cakes etc.

We appreciate your comments and hope that despite you experience, you will continue to consider experiencing “real” Spain in the future.

Many Thanks Andrew and Sian

"A "spot on" location"

We stayed for a week in Mid April. Tucked away just off the main shopping area this is a real find. 7 hours from home in a miserable UK April we were sitting on a roof top terrace sipping wine in th… More

Many thanks for your comments – all the little niggles have now been rectified….

"Great value apartment in Beautiful Ronda"

This is a great value apartment.
Good location, very close to main pedestrianised shopping street, and just a ten minute stroll to bus and railway stations. Easy walking distance to the gorge, the old town, and the sometimes steep pathways to surrounding countryside.
Apartment itself is very spacious, with well equipped kitchen and nice dining room. Basic small video screen which couldn't show TV, but OK for playing music CD's or DVD's. Not pitched at luxury end of market, but very good value for money.

Many thanks for your comments!

"A wonderful stay."

We loved our stay in this apartment. The location is truly excellent, very near to many of the lively bars in the north of the town, and about a 10 minute walk, at most, from the historical quarter. The local area also benefits from a bakery/convenience store opposite, a rather quiet pub with free WiFi if this is needed, and just down the road is an open air public swimming pool (€3.60 entrance).

The roof terrace is also a major plus, offering frankly stunning views of the surrounding Sierra, loungers for lazing about in the sunshine, and a sheltered alcove for a rest from the rays.The uninterrupted heat did mean that the interior of the apartment was on the warm side, but there is an air conditioning unit and fan available to take the edge off.

The kitchen had everything we needed for our week long stay, the living space is nicely decorated and everything was spotlessly clean. Being really, really picky, the only thing we would change is the head/fitting on the shower, which seemed intent on bursting water sideways rather than downwards. But this really is a stupidly minor gripe, and certainly not one that would make us think twice about renting this property again, if we should happen by Ronda, in the future.

Overall, we had a great time in a stunning location, helped in no small part by this lovely holiday apartment. Thoroughly recommended. Thank you so much.

Many thanks for your comments!
