Luxury Holiday Rental Ronda

"FAULTLESS LUXURY: From the initial booking process to the service throughout, this really made our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

We have rented several villas in the past, but on this occasion we were truly made to feel welcome rather than an inconvenience (which has been our experience in the past). This attitude filters down to the property and its facilities. The house is homely, with good quality linens, towels, kitchen equipment, furniture etc. It doesn't feel like your usual rental property.

Plus points
The welcome and service throughout your stay.
The welcome hamper (everything you needed for your first morning)
The pool
The bedrooms and lounge
The local BBQ restaurant a few minutes walk away.
The website (very informative and 100% accurate)
The information pack with great tips especially the suggested drives and walks
The privacy
The views
The garden and grounds
The kitchen and all of its facilities

Down sides
None really, it suited our break perfectly. A few points to be aware of but we were made aware at the early stages of booking. Definitely need a car. Shops are about 15min drive away. Other than the local BBQ restaurant, no restaurants within walking distance.

I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for an excellent house with great facilities and brilliant service, for a peaceful stay in the sun. Just make sure it's the right house for you."

"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 from Robert meant the other half did not miss out on Ascot and Wimbledon when it became too hot to sit outside!!"

Jen and Roy - 2016

"A perfect 2 months spent in a delightful house and garden. Both are superbly maintained. Thanks to Caroline, Robert and 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 - 2016

"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 to Caroline and Robert 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!! - 2016

"WOW what a wonderful time we are having. Caroline and Robert 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 - 2016

"Dear Caroline - on behalf of Jeni and myself, I would like to express our grateful thanks for the trouble that you and Robert took to make our stay in Ronda so comfortable and the sterling efforts that Robert 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 - July 2016

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

The Weavers - April 2015

"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."

Mike K - September 2015

"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 - August 2015

"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 Caroline and Robert and thank you so much for your beautiful surrounding countryside. We will be back soon."

James and Alison and family - August 2015

"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 Robert and Caroline for their hospitality and 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 - July 2015

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

June 2015

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

Richard, Jan and family - May 2015

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.

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

The Marlenys - March 2014

We have had a lovely holiday here at Finca Maridadi. Your manager Caroline's tapas were to die for, and we found your managers to be the most charming couple. The villa is delightful, really comfortable, and superbly equipped.

Roger Sturdy (UK) - September 2013

We have had a wonderful holiday. The house is in a great location to explore the area. We have never had a holiday home that has been so well equipped and beautifully decorated.

Faye and Robert Richards (Canada) - September 2013

We loved our stay, felt very welcomed by the fruit and wine and personal attention given to us. The villa is very comfortable and is well laid out. The scenery right out the door is amazing, wherever you go, Thank you!
