3 bedroom self-catering apartment rural setting with large fenced pool nr Ronda

Family-friendly apartments with outdoor pool and fitness centre
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.

Stunning 15 metre mosaic-tiled swimming pool private to the whole estate, with secure fencing (It's shared with the other rental and occasionally with the owners.)
Large private shaded terrace with BBQ
Finnish sauna (20€ additional for 2 hours session for max 4 people), mini- gym and relaxation chairs
Ample parking
Satellite TV & DVD player
Free Wifi Internet Access
Table Tennis (shared)
14ft Trampoline with safety enclosure (shared)
Child minding (additional and available on request)

You will find that, as the owners occupy the other half of Finca Retama farmhouse, they will be able to offer advice and information as well as being on hand to deal with any problems that may arise.

3/5 Okay

Lovely stay full of rustic charm
We had a lovely stay here. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the property is remarkably well restored considering its age. The pool and surrounding garden area is lovely and well maintained. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area and we enjoyed exploring and visiting Ronda , the mountain villages and further afield. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were just two things that spoiled it. Firstly the driveway to the property is in a terrible state and desperately needs repairing. It is not suitable for cars.. really only for a 4x4 vehicle and we were constantly worried about the damage it might do to our hire car. Secondly the fridge and freezer were absolutely not big enough for a sleep 6 self catering apartment. We had to make daily trips to the supermarket as there was not adequate room to store food for more than one day and this meant our stay was not very restful. We did not see a gym or fitness suite but it was a little hot for that anyway. We did not feel the finca was luxury as stated on the online listing but it was comfortable and we very much enjoyed our stay. Big thanks to Nick and Julia for all their recommendations of places to eat and visit and for lending us after sun when the sun got too much. Thank you very much for having us.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Farmhouse
The farmhouse is about 11k from Ronda in a secluded location. Swimming pool is nice and big and accommodation on first floor where we stayed is self-contained and quaint with a sun terrace on the first floor.

4/5 Good

It is a beautiful rural property. The location allows you to easidrive to Ronda and surrounding tow
The apartment is spacious and comfortable. The host is helpful with information about surrounding towns. The only recommendation for the host is to purchase an additional water heater for the apartment. The supply was unreliable during our stay. Otherwise, all stars!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect base for exploring Ronda and the amazing local landscape
We had a fantastic six day stay with our three teenage children who made great use of the huge pool. It's very close to wonderful Ronda and really well located for exploring the nearby gorgeous Sierra de Grazalema. I can't get the star rating to work above but can give it five stars!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Cottage, surrounded by natural beauty and close to great food and culture!
We absolutely loved our stay on the rural property with beautiful views, amazing wildflowers, lots of space and comfort. Nick and Julia are great hosts and their advice made our stay very enjoyable. We will be back someday!
