"We found El Olivar so delightful we could barely bring ourselves to venture out and explore. We tried so many of the highly recommended restaurants; De Locos Tapas, Tragata and, just outstanding, El Muelle de Arriate." Holly - California
"So beautifully done and so peaceful. Ronda is stunning, we loved the wine tasting, standing on the barrels was a high point! Beautiful house, food & location." Olly & Leni - UK
"We had a truly fun and uplifting time! Being bold and diving in the crystal blue water at the Cueva del Gato, going on a jeep tour and wine tasting in stunning Ronda - a very memorable time." Jamie & Lizzie - Somerset, UK
"The location of the house is phenomenal and the surrounding landscape as well. The pictures show exactly what it looks like. Total peace can be found here. The house is beautifully decorated and the 3 terraces let you live with the rhythm of the sun." Karolien - Vosselare, Belgium
"A wonderful week spent here in this beautiful villa, El Olivar was perfect. We have truly loved every minute especially the secret swimming spot and eating out at Molino del Santo and De Locos Tapas. Until next year!" The French family - UK
"We were looking for a quiet, relaxing break from the stresses of work and we certainly got that here! Everything has been so carefully thought out was really appreciated! When we could tear ourselves away from the poolside we loved wandering around Ronda and Arriate as well as a breathtaking walk in the hills with unmissable views at sunset!" Lisa & Lisa - Brighton
"Beautiful house in a great location in Ronda's beautiful surroundings. No need to go out if you don't feel like it, 'cause everything is here! Ronda Guitar House is great for an intimate Spanish guitar concert. We were lucky to be here during Sevilla's Feria de avril...Sevillanos know how to party!" Monique & family - Antwerp, Belgium
"Quiet, beautiful design and a lot of space outside for our three boys. This was our first time in Ronda and we will definitely come back and thanks to Hilde for such a warm welcome on day one." Daphne & Family - Oslo
"Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We loved the contemporary design - looks like a pinterest picture - as well as the beautiful surroundings." Michiel & Maryse - Belgium
"The attention to detail such as the decor, lighting and (for me) the wine fridge has been fantastic! Our 2 and 4 year old boys have loved it all... We'd love to come back sometime. Nos gusto El Olivar!" Kristen, Ryan, Jake, Joel and Sheila - UK
"We've had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house which has made it very easy to do very little! We did enjoy quite a few of the restaurant recommendations - De Locos Tapas was outstanding: divine food in the prettiest spot in the old town. The Hotel La Fuente de la Higuera was a treat and an equally pleasing setting. We also enjoyed El Muelle at Arriate - the ham was unforgettable." Lisa & Steve - UK
"Safe, quiet and very well equipped. Had two great meals at Hotel La Fuente .....nice to be able to walk, and at El Muelle de Arriate. Our favourite meals were at De Locos Tapas. Chris' trip in his 4x4 was a highlight and well worth it to see the surrounding area. We hope to return." Ralph, Rosalind, Bryony, Gavin, Alice & Guy - UK
"Stunning property - stylish but relaxed - with lots of shade and places to hang out with family and friends. The owners had been so thoughtful with lots of special touches throughout the house (beautifully crafted toys, interesting books etc). The villa and the location exceeded our expectations and made for a wonderful holiday." Naomi - UK
"We had an amazing week during our stay in El Olivar! At dusk and dawn we had the pleasant company of a little owl visible through the door in the kitchen....We really enjoyed playing table tennis and soccer, the house is also very child friendly...and the perfect place for groups to relax... We had a wonderful stay!" Emmeline & family - Tilburg, Netherlands
"The villa was even more beautiful than in the photos, the attention to detail was excellent and the gardens and location were perfect. The house was spotless, with the comfiest bed ever! I cannot recommend El Olivar highly enough." Hayley & family - UK
"The perfect place for the whole family to relax. Between the pool and the table tennis our two young men (16 and 20) had plenty to do while we lounged. The south terrace looking across the pool to Ronda provided a cool and restful spot for endless reading and we had many banquets after a glass or two watching the sun go down behind the foothills. We loved the rooms - so lovingly thought through - a great space for slowing down." Alice C - UK
"Every vista was spectacular (especially if you get up to watch the sun rise) and the much needed pool in August was perfect... lovely design touches, well equipped and roomy. If you are looking for luxury in the Ronda area, I think this villa would be pretty hard to beat - Well summarised by my 8 year old son; “best holiday ever!” G & family - UK
"The villa is beautiful inside and out. We managed to slip into the Spanish way of living very easily. The location is fantastic, feeling rural but actually a stone's throw from Ronda. We feel truly chilled and ready for a couple of nights in Seville before heading back." The A. family - UK
"The house is beautiful and the detail, design and love put into it was truly appreciated. The subtle but very effective sustainability efforts were wonderful. We often wondered - should we even leave the house to explore the local towns? A wonderful experience - Thank you!" Samantha & Tom - Australia
"We were an extended family of 8 people from 6 to 65 years old. The house was as described with good quality fittings and well furnished, luxurious without losing the authentic touch... All in all highly recommended and everyone had a great time." Jon & family - UK
"Absoluter Höhepunkt: der Weinkühlschrank!" Christiane B. - Germany
"It has been such an immense pleasure to stay in such a beautiful villa which is in such a delightful location. It is so tastefully furnished and well equipped with quality gadgets, we have loved the coffee machine! We have explored the local area on foot - such stunning walks - and enjoyed all the recommended restaurants. If you are here in spring you could join the locals in hunting for wild asparagus!" The Thompsons and Jones Reynolds
