At the gateway to the Sierra de Grazalema Nature Park and near enough to Ronda to dip in and out with ease, this typical 'Cortijo' has been converted into a comfortable hotel with superb views to the sunflowers, wheat fields and holm-oak forests around.

Cortijo means farmhouse but perhaps 'grange' would be a better translation here with its imposing white facetted main building, elegant courtyards and stabling for many horses belying a slightly grander history.

The hotel has eight rooms, all on the ground floor, each accessed directly via its own terrace from which guests can enjoy views to the lovely hills around or the delightful shady patios. The pool is a haven of peace as are the beautifully kept grounds. There's a lovely lounge, traditionally furnished with a huge fireplace and honesty bar for guests use only.

Ronda, Andalucia

Perhaps the most famous of Andalucia’s famous ‘Pueblos Blancos’, the picturesque ‘white villages’ which stretch over the southern mountains, Ronda is so much more than a pretty face.

The current village was settled in Roman times but there have been settlements since the Celtic period (600 BC) and evidence of human occupation since Neolithic times in the rock paintings of nearby Cueva de la Pileta.

After the Romans came the Visgoths, followed by eight centuries of Moorish rule ending in 1485 with the Reconquista, though the village was a refuge for Moriscos (covert Muslims) for some time afterwards.

Each passing culture has left its mark not least in the three bridges – Romano, Arabe and Nuevo -which span the vertiginous gorges. There are Moorish baths dating back to the 13th century and Spain’s oldest bullring where the peculiarities of the ‘art’ were developed by the local Romero family.

In more recent times Orson Welles and Hemmingway both spent summers here, spreading its fame worldwide, the latter using it as inspiration for a Civil War scene the book For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Ronda sits at the gateway to the Grazalema Nature Park, popular with bird watchers and botanists alike. The limestone sierra, riddled with caves,rises up to over 1600m and is home to many vultures including the threatened Egyptian Vulture.Visit Ronda's famous bridges, baths and bullring
