The
Experience

The Ronda mountains wrapped Christina and Pom in its spell and they realised their dream: a blissful retreat encircled by olive groves, ten minutes out of town. Christina is the ‘spark’, a charming woman who has decorated the area’s first boutique hotel with cool, understated elegance. Pom is born to the role of host: a raconteur by nature and a connoisseur of wine. The conversion of their old mill has been accomplished with local expertise, smooth plastering and planked floors adding to the immaculate furnishings and the stylish feel – a change from the more usual beam and terracotta. Each lovely suite has an open fire for cosy winter stays; Indonesian beds, muslin drapes, lamps, chairs and tables add a touch of exotica. Bathrooms are generous. An honesty bar, books and a vast collection of CDs add to the relaxed and laid-back feel. The focus is poolwards; beyond, groves of olives and the changing colours of the mountains – a blissful backdrop to your sundowner. Feast on Mediterranean dishes prepared principally from their organic orchard, and matched by fabulous Andalucian wines.

Reviews

This was the perfect location to relax as well as a great base to explore Ronda and the other hill towns. The hosts were friendly and assisted us as needed. We were able to be as social or a private as we wished. The rooms were well appointed. The food and wine offered for breakfast and dinner were amazing. The chef kept us returning for dinner each night. We loved our stay and will certainly return.
