Luxury Holiday Rental Ronda

"Great secluded location and a beautiful premises. Clean to perfection and a really well equipped kitchen. We even had some food provided for us as a welcome pack which was a great help. The grounds included a swimming pool that was a great way to escape the heat. At the same time we were only 10 minutes away from Ronda. Great communication from the hosts as well."


"La estancia ha sido de alta calidad. Cuando llegamos teníamos el frigorífico lleno con pan, dos botellas de vino, huevos, agua, jamón, queso, café, té... Limpieza exquisita y atención maravillosa. Gel de baño acondicionador, crema hidratante, carbón para barbacoa, pastillas de encendido, ... Todas las comodidades de un hotel en una una casa de alquiler. Maravilloso. Muy recomendable para desconectar y disfrutar de Ronda"


"La casa fantástica, con mucho estilo, todo muy limpio y organizado, Lugar muy tranquilo , ideal para descansar, el anfitrion, Lawrence, muy atento. Lo recomendamos , Eso si esperamos que solucionen lo antes posible la conexión de internet, que es muy deficiente y también la televisión que se quedaba congelada la imagen continuamente."


"Wonderful villa, well located between Ronda and the Sierra de Grazalema, practical and thoughtfully furnished. Very hospitable hosts, Lawrence was very helpful and provided great insights about places to visit. An excellent place to stay if you want to spend a few days in this beautiful area. "


"So often this week we have congratulated ourselves on finding such a wonderful house! The location, the house itself, the pool and the garden have helped us relax and enjoy our trip! We must have had a great week..., we are moving to La Cancela for our next week here! Thank you to Ana and Isobel, the house is spotless. Thank you to Lawrence and Jose for a fine garden. A simple thank you to Patti, a wonderful property you have here. Thanks for sharing it! "

Bev and David

"We have had a fantastic 2 weeks in Los Olivos. The house was properly equipped, designed and very comfortable. 2 weeks of clear blue skies and wall to wall sunshine have meant we`ve enjoyed the beautiful outdoors and pool. The children have spent more time swimming than ever before!"

Peter R.

"Another 2 weeks at Los Olivos draw to a conclusion and we can but look forward to next summer when we will hopefully be here again. It is our SIXTH visit to Estate Finca Maridadi - so what more need I say but thanks to the team for your hospitality, assistance and advice (of one sort or another!!) "

David and Angela M.

"Our 9th year staying in Ronda and our 4th at Los Olivos. We had yet another relaxing and soothing stay here on The Finca Maridadi Estate, the thoughts of these warm September days will keep us going until we can come again. "

"Far in expectation of other so called luxury villas"

Jen and Roy

"Such a well run and beautiful establishment"


"Thank you for one of the most wonderful vacation experiences that we have ever had"

The Marlenys

"This is an elegant and well appointed villa and the garden is beautiful - all in a peaceful, secluded and fascinating area. Thank you for all the welcoming touches. A lovely late autumn break"

Steele family.

"Thank you. What a gorgeous villa in a beautiful part of the world"

Lucy Manning.

"What a lovely villa!! Fantastic welcome pack, FAR IN EXPECTATION OF OTHER SO CALLED LUXURY VILLAS, definitely deserves its accolade. We were blessed with glorious weather so spent little time sightseeing (this is our 5th year staying in the area) but absorbed the sun by the pool instead. The loan of a laptop meant the other half did not miss out on Ascot and Wimbledon when it became too hot to sit outside!!"

Jen and Roy

"A perfect 2 months spent in a delightful house and garden. Both are superbly maintained. Thanks to Lawrence’s in depth knowledge of the local area my many visiting friends and I enjoyed a whirlwind tour of the local must see restaurants, bars and bodegas. A visit to Camino del Rey is essential as only average walking capabilities and a moderate head for heights are required. I am likely to return next year and hope little has changed."

Stephen, family and friends

"A beautiful villa, with lovely gardens and stunning surroundings. It was perfect for our family with visits to local villages and time spent by the pool. Highlights were Ronda and Grazalema!! Thanks for a lovely welcome and the much appreciated snack and drinks on our arrival. Look forward to another visit."

Dhyaan, Nopi and Nev and parents!!

"WOW what a wonderful time we are having. You have been so tremendous and have spoiled us with flowers, cava, meats, cheeses, fruit and Floris soaps and toiletries. We have spent our time exploring and using the brilliant pool and BBQ and have loved every moment. SUCH A WELL RUN AND BEAUTIFUL ESTABLISHMENT."


"Thank you for a very enjoyable and memorable stay. The villa has been magnificent and we have been well cared for!! Also everything was scrupulously clean – and each bedroom came with an ensuite bathroom which is wonderful. We recommend having several massages with Ratcha – a truly fabulous and indulgent experience."

Angus and Emily

"On behalf of Jeni and myself, I would like to express our grateful thanks for the trouble that you took to make our stay in Ronda so comfortable and the sterling efforts that was made so that I could see the football. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the welcome pack you provided was very generous and thoughtful. Really appreciated! We will try and come again next year."

Jeni & Ray

"This is a 5 star place in every way: roomy, beautiful, wonderfully 'equipped' with everything visitors could want, including all the special treats provided... Thankyou for our best stay ever at a European villa - we hope to be back in the future!"

The Weavers

"We were very impressed with the very high quality of Los Olivos and we would regard it as one of the nicest houses which we have rented over the many years which we have been visiting Spain. The spacious garden is a delight with lovely trees and shrubs and we enjoyed the lovely pool although by October it is starting to cool down a bit! Inside the house the bedrooms and bathrooms are large and well furnished as is the main living room. Sometimes it is the little things which make the difference such as a nice welcome pack, fresh flowers on our arrival, wooden hangers in the wardrobes, soft towels and nice hot showers! Although the house is in a rural location it is only around 10 minutes drive from the wonderful city of Ronda. We would certainly consider renting Los Olivos again next year as it is such a lovely house."

"My wife and I stayed at Los Olivos with our two young children (aged 2 and 9 months respectively) in August 2015.

The villa is located a few km outside Ronda in a beautiful spot in the countryside. The villa itself is extremely private, surrounded by a wall or mature trees. It is designed in a fairly simple, but very comfortable way - inkeeping with the style of the area. Inside, it is very clean and well equiped, with an excellent kitchen and 3 ensuite rooms. Great for families, but I imagine a real bonus for groups of friends. However, the garden is the real winner - with its extensive lawn, large pool and two seating/dining areas (one by the house and the other at the far end of the garden where the BBQ is located) - there is plenty of space for children to play or for adults to find some peace and quiet. In fact, the garden was so nice that despite Ronda's many attractions, we chose to stay at home and barbecue every night! My slight concern that the villa was located right next to a railway line came to nothing - yes, you are very close indeed to the track but trains come through maybe 6-8 times a day and tended to add interest rather than cause unwelcome disturbance. My one slight gripe is that at the end of the drive is the most beautiful view across the vast valley, but it is necessary to go to the end of the drive to see it - it is not visible from the garden.

Ronda itself is a charming old town with plenty of narrow streets to explore and places of interest to visit. Good and very reasonably priced restaurants are plentiful, although, as I mentioned, we ate a lot at home taking advantage of the local produce (particuarly the fresh fish and seasonal fruit and veg) available at the group of sizeable supermarkets on the nearside of Ronda town centre (maybe 3-4km away). Further afield, the villa is very well located for day trips to Seville (well worth the trip), Cordoba, Granada, Cadiz and Marbella. All are within about a two hour drive.

My family had one of the best holidays I can remember at Los Olivos, striking a lovely balance between chilling out at home and sightseeing. We hadn't holidayed in this part of the world before but I sincerely hope we do again, and if we do, I know exactly where I will be staying. Thank you Los Olivos and see you soon!"

James Parker

"A really wonderful holiday. We have enjoyed the villa so much. In an understated way it has everything we could possiblyl need. We loved the atmosphere of Ronda and explored Seville, Cordoba and Cadiz. Thank you villa Los Olivos. Thank you so much for your beautiful surrounding countryside. We will be back soon."

James and Alison and family

"All five of us have had an amazing and incredibly relaxing week in Los Olivos and wish we could extend our stay here!! A very big thank you to Lawrence who keeps the grounds in immaculate condition. Enjoyed lots of days out during our stay and have lots to recommend to friends. Thank you very much and we hope to return sometime soon."

Adam, Anna and family

"Los Olivos was a very calming respite for our family and the surrounding area’s natural beauty was breathtaking. Thanks for kind assistance and guidance especially La Muelle de Arriate and its owner Frank. Best food of the vacation."

Los Olivos and Ronda were even better second time around! Thank you so much for their wonderful hospitality. We hope to be back again soon."

Richard, Jan and family

"This is a 5 star place in every way: roomy, beautiful, wonderfully 'equipped' with everything visitors could want, including all the special treats provided... Thankyou for our best stay ever at a European villa - we hope to be back in the future!"

Thank you for a week in paradise. The charm of the house kept us later each morning and saw us return sooner each afternoon.

I have to to tell you just how much we enjoyed Maridadi. The house is beautiful, so well decorated! We felt so comfortable and spoilt. The gardens and the pool are stunning. We had a really happy time.
