Holiday Rental House
El Olivar is a luxurious, spacious and extremely comfortable, four bedroom finca set within its own olive grove and surrounded by rolling farmland with panoramic views to the Serranía de Ronda and Grazalema National Park. Decorated in a soothing palette of white and muted colours, with whitewashed beams and terracotta floors throughout, the finca is beautifully and luxuriously furnished, in a rustic contemporary style with design classics, vintage pieces and original artwork. The house is exceptionally comfortable and well appointed with a well equipped kitchen, hotel quality mattresses and linens, thick, fluffy towels and glorious bathrooms.

Decorated in a soothing palette of white and muted colours, with whitewashed beams and terracotta floors throughout, the finca is beautifully and luxuriously furnished, in a rustic contemporary style with design classics, vintage pieces and original artwork. The house is exceptionally comfortable and well appointed with a well equipped kitchen, hotel quality mattresses and linens, thick, fluffy towels and glorious bathrooms. El Olivar is in an idyllic rural location yet is only a few miles from Ronda with an authentic bar restaurant under five minutes away and a superb hotel restaurant within walking distance. Ideally located, in the highly sought after, unspoilt, los Frontones area, the finca is rural, tranquil and completely private, yet has easy access to the beautiful medieval city of Ronda, one of the finest pueblos blancos, and the many charms of Andalucia; Ronda is less than ten minutes by car or a twenty minute bike ride and the lively village of Arriate is only five minutes away. The atmosphere is extremely calming and everything is on hand for a fabulously relaxing holiday. Superbly suited to family get-togethers or romantic getaways, with its thick walls, shady terraces and air conditioning, the house stays cool even in the height of summer. A wood burner and central heating keep the house cosy through the short Andalucian winters. Mature vines provide much needed shade over the south facing terrace which stretches the full width of the house and overlooks the garden with its inviting, private pool and stunning, 360 degree views. Take a leisurely breakfast on the east facing terrace looking towards the olive grove and lush valley or sip a glass of wine from one of the many local vineyards and watch the sun set over the mountains to the west. A paella burner, barbecue and well-stocked herb garden add to the appeal of al fresco dining. The house sits in a nature lover’s, bird watcher’s and walker’s paradise with walks right from the door and the stunning vistas offer incredible inspiration to those with an artistic or photographic inclination. The gastronomic specialities and creative cuisine of the local area wait to be discovered, this is a foodie’s dream. Ideal for a family holiday or well earned short break, spacious enough for nine yet romantic and intimate. The bedrooms can be arranged to suit your requirements but consist of a master bedroom with four poster super kingsize bed with ensuite bathroom (freestanding stone resin bath with hand shower), an emperor sized bed and day bed which can also be arranged as triple room (twin room with full sized, comfortable daybed) and two, more compact double rooms. The family bathroom has double sinks and walk in shower. There is also a WC downstairs. Families are well catered for, from toddlers to teenagers, with thoughtful little touches; toys, books, games, the fabulous pool in the large, enclosed garden, table tennis, croquet, mountain bikes, wi-fi, games consoles, artist’s materials and a comprehensive guide to the sights and delights of the local area mean no one will be getting bored. Activities and experiences such as yoga, pilates, horseriding and wine tasting can easily be arranged or simply relax in the complete peace and serenity of the garden where sunny days are lingering and plentiful and stars crowd the night sky. El Olivar offers luxury self catering and the best of both worlds - rural tranquility with fabulous views yet easy access to the beautiful city of Ronda.

About the neighbourhood
Arriate is the nearest village, lively and welcoming with everything from locally grown fruit and vegetables and local specialities to fish fresh from the coast. Ronda is a beautiful city, an hour and a half from Malaga and a whole world away! With Roman, Arabic and neo-classical architecture, a beautifully unspoilt old town and a jaw dropping gorge - el Tajo - Ronda has lots to offer from the beautiful park with the best views, great hospitality and fantastic food - it never fails to impress. This really is a great location with loads of different activities and trips to hand including visits to one of the many local vineyards, bird watching, hiking in Grazelema National Park, hot air ballooning, tennis, mountain biking, quad biking, horse riding or trips further afield to the Alhambra...
Getting around
El Olivar is a ten minute drive or twenty minute cycle into Ronda. The charming village of Arriate is 15 minutes by bike.
