Reach out to Jill, the owner, for an excellent experience from enquiry to check-out! Sleeping 8 persons very comfortably in 4 bedrooms all with luxury en-suite bathrooms and wi-fi throughout, it really is an amazing property. Villa Casa Sonana is the most reviewed and highest rated TripAdvisor 5-star Villa in Rural Andalucia. You will find the reviews on the TripAdvisor site. This isn't a normal villa rental, the owner is an experienced luxury hotelier, and this is visible throughout all the small additional touches and personal customer service details throughout your booking process. A short drive along a bumpy private country road, the luxury villa rental Casa Sonana is situated in 7 acres in a secluded spot on the edge of the Ronda Mountains. Its private land rolls gently down to a small river with unparralled views – uninterrupted vistas from every angle of the house offer its guests true seclusion and relaxation. With interior design by Robbin Tess-Riley, this luxury villa in Andalucia provides you with the comfort and ambience to truly relax. Enjoy throws by Missoni and personal bathrobes, slippers, hairdryers, that let you know that you are not in any ordinary Spanish holiday villa. At over 320m² with a large terrace and balconies in each bedroom, it is generously proportioned for complete holiday enjoyment. The luxury holiday Villa Casa Sonana exemplifies Andalucian rural chic ....at its best. Villa Casa Soñana is the private holiday home of Callum & Jill who designed the house around their love for this region of Spain, its people and lifestyle. More than this, it is designed to provide a luxury holiday home for those who want to enjoy the real Spain in a contemporary, unique villa. They commissioned their Architect to create a luxury villa whose airy, contemporary ambience takes advantage of the light and views out to the Sierra de Ronda. It's design was recognised by Channel 4's Grand Designs who were interested in featuring the villa on their programme. Not many luxury villas in Andalucía are designed with the same attention to detail as Villa Casa Soñana. The spectacular Andalucían scenery is key throughout the luxury Spanish villa and as such it has been designed with large open spaces, with double height ceilings, wall to wall glass, and balconies from each room. Large terraces provide beautiful views of the olive trees, forests of the neighbouring hillside and the spectacular Sierra de Ronda. Off the living area is an intimate sunken dining area and a fully equipped modern kitchen. The sunken dining area provides an intimate spot to eat and still see the views that surround the house. The kitchen is decorated in wenge wood and has all that you would need if you are looking for inspired cooking! From the large gas hob, to the dishwasher to the ice and iced water dispensing fridge – the aim of this space is be a place where you would be comfortable cooking – or comfortable watching people cooking! The living area and kitchen open up on to the terraces as if it was all one space. As you enter the terrace, all you may hear as you gaze out to the olive groves in the distance are the tinkling of the bells of neighbour Jose's sheep and the rustling of the eucalyptus trees from the stream at the bottom of the garden. The terrace is the ideal place to spend much of your long, lazy day at the villa. With Pizza Oven, BBQ and large communal table you needn't move …. apart from to go the few steps to the large swimming pool. Villa Casa Soñana is one of the finest villas for rent in Andalucia and has 4 large ensuite bedrooms such that the villa can accommodate 8 spaciously. Each bedroom has its own character, design and views. Importantly, they are comfort personified with blissfully relaxing Scandinavian beds and crisp cotton sheets. It's important that you have sweet dreams – 'sueños dulces' – in our beds. The rooms are quiet havens of peace and relaxation. Each bedroom is furnished in an individual style and has its own private balcony or direct access to the gardens. All rooms have special LED lighting, large fitted wardrobes, automatic blinds, integral mosquito nets, and luxurious jatoba wooden floors In the winter, there is no need to pine for the summer sun as warmth is generated by an open fire and under floor heating throughout the house. The Daily Telegraph also recognised the quality and uniqueness of Villa Casa Sońana chosing it as one of the top 15 Luxury Villa Rentals throughout the whole of Spain. .

About the neighbourhood
Ronda is 6 km from Villa Casa Sonana, and is a fantastic real Spanish city, offering you everything when you can drag yourself away from the relaxation at Casa Sonana! It has history, culture, shopping, great tapas bars and restaurants, childrens activities, the oldest bullring in spain, the former holiday city of Ernest Hemmingway & Orson wells. The first week of each September Ronda hosts their annual Feria - a truly spectactular traditional fiesta celebrating its history and the city comes alive with local festivities. Nearer to the Villa, you have Arriate, your local 'Pueblo Blanco', and if you want to experience 'The Real Spain' then this shouldnt be by-passed. It offers you everything you need from shoe-shops (the cheapest in Andalucia also!) to local fish...
Getting around
Getting around the area of Villa Casa Sonana is dead easy. You can walk into Arriate, your local 'Pueblo Blanco' (white village), and then car hire is needed to explore other parts of Andalucia. There is also a train station in Ronda which has a good network of train links to other part of Spain. There is also a local taxi service in Arriate where Antonio and his family operate a fabulous taxi service which could be as local as taking you into Ronda and back, or an airport transfer to Malaga, Seville, Jerez or Gibraltar, or any other parts of Andalucia.
