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. 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.

We all loved this wonderful house. It was perfect for our family of eight. The house is comfortable and spacious and the garden and pool are lovely. Also no neighbours. What’s not to love?

Thanks for your lovely review. The tranquility and privacy really appealed to us too, we love escaping for a break away from it all and I’m so glad you all had such a good time.

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...
