Finca Retama Farmstead
...a taste of real Spain
Finca Retama, a 200 year-old Andaluz Farmstead, sits in an idyllic setting within the tranquility of the Serrania de Ronda. In the grounds is a high-specification 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom self-catering Spanish holiday villa (sleeps 2 – 5) and a beautifully restored 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom traditional farmhouse apartment rental (sleeping 2 – 7). These family friendly self-contained holiday homes are set in 8 acres of private arable land with its own woodland bordering a pretty stream and are accessed along its private 200m drive. The picture of rustic Spanish life is complete yet you are only a few minutes from the historic and picturesque town of Ronda, Inland Andalusia.
These graceful and spacious vacation lets are very comfortable, have all the mod-cons ( including central-heating and free wifi) and are available throughout the whole year. Both holiday-homes 'Casa Abuela' and 'Farmhouse Apartment' can be rented on their own or both together making them the perfect choice for couples, families or friends.
The extra large 15m+ pool (biggest and warmest private pool in the area!) is fully fenced, landscaped and private to the whole estate. Both luxury self-catering vacation rentals are tastefully decorated to a Moorish theme with plenty of Berber rugs, high quality hardwood furniture and fittings. Casa Abuela has been especially designed for wheelchair access.
Recently completed and ideal for the cooler Spanish months is a luxurious 'mini-spa' and relaxation room containing a superb 5-person Finnish sauna, hydro-massage shower and multi-gym. Imagine returning from your hard day's activities in the knowledge that a pampering awaits. This private facility is unique for holiday homes in the region and is available to both holiday-lets.
Although the Finca Retama vacation rentals are situated in a bucolic valley in the countryside they are only a ten minute drive from the fabulous town of Ronda and its charming white Andalusian villages scattered all around. With three Natural Parks on their doorstep, our rentals make an ideal base for a wide variety of activities including horse-riding, nature walking, rock climbing, mountain – biking, bird watching, caving…and much more besides.
In fact you could not choose a more central location from which to enjoy sightseeing in the famous Andalucian cities of Cordoba, Granada, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz and Malaga. Also, not too far away, are the coastal resorts of the Costa del Sol and the unspoilt sandy beaches of the Costa de la Luz.

We've had a great time exploring Ronda and the surrounding villages. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place from which to do it! Casa Abuela is in a glorious setting and its been so lovely to spend timee here as well. Thank you for being excellent hosts, really nice to meet you both and the boys. I'm sure we'll see you again in the future. (Melissa, Rachel, Bob and Pat, London UK, October)
