The main house and surrounding buildings of this luxury holiday rental blend naturally into the landscape, having been built around the native rock (see photos of our living areas within the main house). With a total of six bedrooms, our home is perfect for families, friends reunions and groups of up to 12 people looking for a private villa in Andalucia. The main house is elegant, cool and spacious, with many different areas for a large group to spread out and relax. Discover three tastefully-furnished living areas on split levels, a kitchen and a dining room, providing plenty of space for your family and friends to read, play card games, watch a film or listen to music. Sleep soundly in the five double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms containing beautiful mosaic tiled walk-in showers with adjustable mood lighting. Our well-supplied kitchen was designed for a professional chef and provides all the cooking utensils and basic pantry items you need to prepare meals for a large group. The three luxurious lounges on different levels and the dining room are very atmospheric, with walls set into the natural rock. The dining table comfortably seats twelve and sufficient china and cutlery are provided. The Casa Principal is always rented along with El Nido, which is a large air-conditioned private suite attached to the main house. The suite has its own entrance, pretty terrace and bathroom, and contains a TV, WiFi, wireless speakers, and basic cooking facilities (including a combination microwave oven, toaster, kettle and fridge). A perfect place for members of your family and large group who need or desire a space of their own with the benefit of air conditioning. Our Roman-inspired pool is only heated naturally by the sun, but it is surrounded by fragrant lavender and stunning views. For your comfort there are: • 12 sun loungers • Garden seats and a table • Shaded areas • Cold freshwater showers fed straight from our spring and many different terraces surround the house, with areas for relaxing, dining, snoozing and admiring the view. Unfortunately, barbecues are not allowed during the summer months due to the risk of fire. There are so many different spots to choose from within the grounds, you’ll be hard-pressed deciding what to do! • Explore the property with our 'Nature Trail' • Read in the lounge chairs on the terrace • Dine under the vine-covered pergola • Search for tadpoles in the stream • Stroll along to the 12th Century ‘alberca’ (English: 'water cistern') • Take a drink up to the old threshing circle and watch the sun change the colours of the gorge from orange to pink. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the deer as the owls start hooting. The area around La Cazalla has barely changed since the Romans, and later the Moors, inhabited it. Once here a feeling of peace prevails: the sounds of insects buzzing, birds singing, bells jangling on goats in the forest and the breeze rustling the leaves on the trees. It is difficult to spot any other sign of human life, and yet the sense that man has lived in this valley for thousands of years is very strong. Whatever the needs of your party, please let us know, and we will do our utmost to ensure a memorable stay. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: CR/MA/00123More

Interaction with guests
We are happy to have as much or as little interaction with our guests as they want - some guests like the idea of us being on hand if they have questions, and we love to point our guests in the right direction to ensure they have an experience that exceeds their expectations - other guests want total privacy and then we are invisible!

About the neighborhood
Ronda has the charm of a small town, but at the same time offers modern shops, large supermarkets and good restaurants. Some of the best restaurants in Ronda are nearby in the Plaza Alameda: Casa Maria and De Locos Tapas, as well as a great coffee shop: Ronda Sweet. Nearby, the pretty ‘Peublos Blancos’ (English: 'white villages') make for a wonderful, scenic drive. Further afield the cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites of Granada, Seville and Cordoba are all around 2 hours drive from Ronda - perfectly feasible as day trips to discover the fascinating heart of Andalucía. In the opposite direction, 45 minutes away on the Mediterranean coast, lies the glitz and glamour of Marbella and Puerto Banus.
Getting around
You need a car to arrive at La Cazalla and this will be invaluable to really explore the wonderful countryside and pretty villages around Ronda. Even the cities of Seville, Granada and Córdoba are easily visited in a day, being just 2 to 2.5 hours easy drive from Ronda.
