The images of seductive flamenco, moreish tapas, sherry (by the bottles) and architectural motifs all derive from Andalucia. And yet, many travellers write off the South of Spain – but little do they know the magnitude of that mistake. You see, Andalucia is a million miles away from the ‘Brits Abroad’ culture found in many Spanish islands, and in return is the rich architecture, unimaginable Roman ruins, golden sands and unforgettable locals. Thankfully, you can experience our love for the region by staying in one of our villas in Andalucia.
On the outskirts of the historic town of Ronda amidst the green rolling hills, lies this gorgeous gem. Surrounded by local flora and fauna of the Spanish farmlands of which you can admire while enjoying some alfresco dining, drinking champagne from the jacuzzi or just looking outside the window of the sauna. The villa has been beautifully decorated to complement the southern Spanish architecture. It is perfect for friends or families to relax in Andalucía.
