Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

Andalusias six most visited cities are all within a 1 - 2 hour drive from the farm. Aristocratic Jerez famed for its sherry, fine horses and flamenco; Cordobas breathtaking Mesquita, arab baths and teahouses; Granadas world famous Alhambra: a vast Moorish fortress-palace complex; Seville for its pervading perfume of orange blossom, its Moorish Alcazar and superb cathedral; Cadiz with its naval history, fresh seafood delicacies and annual carnival and finally Malaga famed for its Moorish Alcazaba fortress, newly opened Picasso museum and vibrant old townall a short stroll from the beach.

The nearest beach, which is just under an hours drive along one of the most scenic routes in Andalucia, is Marbellas San Pedro. This happens to be one of the best the Costa del Sol has to offer as the sandy beach is wide and well shaded by trees, the water clean and the immediate area uncluttered by the usual assortment of Costa over development.

The unspoilt sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz are only 2 hours drive away a favourite day trip for those seeking a more tranquil seaside trip.

If however you prefer swimming in a clear, clean river-fed lake, drive about 20 minutes through scenic countryside where you'll find the unspoilt and well shaded fresh water lagoon with its grassed beach and great value restaurant.

Ronda

Ronda and Further Afield
The beautifully conserved and ancient Moorish town of Ronda with its world famous gorge, oldest bullring in Spain, and delightfully winding cobbled streets is just on your doorstep… as are the charming white Andalucian villages (Pueblos Blancos) typical of the region and where a slower, more traditional way of life still pervades.

The city of Ronda with a population of just 40,000 is just the right size to enjoy it's history, yet small enough that everywhere is within walking distance of the town centre. In Roman times Arunda as it was known, was a small village while the nearby city of Acinipo dominated the main trade route. By the time of the Moorish conquest Ronda had overtaken other villages for dominance and Acinipo had fallen into ruin. The impregnable fortress that arose above the 'El Tajo' gorge survived hundreds of years of war between Christian Spain and the Moorish Caliphate but finally fell in 1485.

This history and subsequent years have left their mark and today Ronda is one of Spain's most visited cities, and the largest of Andalucia's famed white towns. While you're in Ronda be sure to walk across the Puente Nuevo into the old town and see the many churches and museums, followed by a stroll down to the old bridge and Arab baths. A few hours is more than enough to see the sights in Ronda, although you could easily return another day for a more detailed look.

White Villages and Natural Parks
These make excellent and easy half day trips and offer the discerning lover of Spain a taste of the original Andalucia that has hardly changed over the centuries. Three natural parks surround Ronda and so, not surprisingly, those looking for an action holiday will not be disappointed.

Whether it’s caves to explore, horses to ride, a long cycling trip out into the hills or rock climbing in the highly-rated ‘El Chorro’ mountains or simply a gentle stroll around Finca Retama’s ample grounds followed by the rest of the day lazing by the pool…there’s something here for all energy levels.

It should also be noted that bird watchers and painters favour the area. Apart from hundreds of endemic species of flora and fauna, Andalucia is also a popular migration stopover point for a lot of bird species.
The area surrounding Finca Retama has a wealth of both bird and plant species. Set amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Spain, why not spend at least a day visiting sites of importance for wildflowers and birds with Spanish Nature? Their local knowledge will ensure you find those 'impossible to find' sites in our area and will guarantee you see some of the area's specialities.

“One of our best holidays ever”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

Lovely accommodation in a really fab place - a bit off the beaten track which suited us fine. Nick and Julia are delightful hosts and very willing to help with anything you need. The pool was brilliant- we swam every day for hours and hours. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning and Ronda is a fantastic place to visit several times- round every corner there's an amazing view either of a pretty little square or street or else the breathtaking panorama of hills which surround the town. Lots of places to visit locally- the white villages of Andalusia are really charming, also there's Roam remains and caves with 32000 year old drawings. Cafes in Ronda are great for whiling away the time and people watching. Particularly recommended nearby Hotel Molino del Puente for a great meal with friendly hosts. Actually walking distance along a countrified track from the apartment but you will need a good torch for return journey if the moon isn't out. A great way to see the sun set over the hills. NB If you're offered the choice between the farmhouse accommodation and Casa Abuela which is purpose built (extremely tastefully- Moorish feel)- I would pick the latter if your party only needs 2 bedrooms. It is the nicer of the 2. But both are lovely. NB again. If you want to visit Alhambra during high season book at the time of booking your holiday. We were not able to get in even with 2 weeks notice.

Thank you for such a great review. Delighted you really enjoyed your stay at the Farmhouse Apartment. Really hope to see you both again one year...maybe next time with the whole family? All the best, Julia and Nick
