Finca Retama, a 200 year-old Andaluz Farmstead, nestles in an idyllic setting within the tranquility of the Serrania de Ronda. Offered for rent is a beautifully restored 3 bedroom 2 bathroom (1 en suite and 1 family bathroom) traditional farmhouse apartment (sleeps max 4 adults and 3 children). The family friendly self-contained holiday homes are set in 8 acres of private arable land with its own woodland bordering a pretty stream and are accessed along its private 200m drive. The apartment is the top half of the farmhouse and the owners occupy the bottom half. The picture of rustic Spanish life is complete yet you are only a few minutes from the historic and picturesque town of Ronda, Inland Andalusia.
Also in the grounds is a high-specification 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom self-catering Spanish holiday villa (sleeps max 4 adults and 1 child) which is listed separately.
The graceful and spacious vacation let is very comfortable, has all the mod-cons ( including central-heating and free wifi) and is available throughout the whole year.
The internal layout has been thoughtfully devised: in one wing is a large double bedroom (with superb views) and its own en-suite bathroom. This can be completely isolated from the rest of the for a peaceful parental siesta!
The sitting/dining room has satellite TV and DVD player. In addition there are two more bedrooms: one double with twin beds (which can easily be joined together to form a double): and a single room with bunk beds. (The bottom part of the bunk bed can be used by an adult if needed.) Both have access to the terrace.
A separate family bathroom serves the rest of the let. The fully equipped kitchen has a four ring hob, separate oven, large fridge, washing machine, kettle and toaster and all the usual plates and pans expected in an upmarket self catering holiday let.
The extra large 15m+ pool (biggest and warmest private pool in the area!) is fully fenced, landscaped and private to the whole estate. (Shared with the other rental and the owners.) The luxury self-catering vacation rental is tastefully decorated to a Moorish theme with plenty of Berber rugs, high quality hardwood furniture and fittings.
Some of the walls are a metre thick (and far from straight); exposed wooden beams are everywhere and through some of the doors you must duck…especially when entering the private terrace which overlooks this fruit farm.
BBQs on the spacious, private terrace are one popular dining option. Here provision has been made for ample seating... not forgetting the superb views across the valley to the mountains which one can see changing colour as the sun goes down.
Ideal for the cooler Spanish months is a luxurious 'mini-spa' containing a superb 5-person Finnish sauna and a mini-gym. Imagine returning from your hard day's activities in the knowledge that a pampering awaits. This private facility is unique for holiday homes in the region.
Although Fincaretama is nestled in a bucolic valley in the countryside we are only a ten minute drive from the fabulous town of Ronda and its charming white Andalusian villages scattered all around. With three Natural Parks on their doorstep, our rentals make an ideal base for a wide variety of activities including horse-riding, nature walking, rock climbing, mountain – biking, bird watching, caving…and much more besides.
In fact you could not choose a more central location from which to enjoy sightseeing in the famous Andalucian cities of Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz and Malaga. Also, not too far away, are the coastal resorts of the Costa del Sol and the unspoilt sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz.
