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.

GUEST REVIEW

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)

                                             

On leaving Malaga airport get into the lower Cadiz lane which will take you onto the main N340/A7 dual carriageway. Once on drive 1.8kms looking out for the small Churriana A404 exit. Take it and you'll get to a roundabout very shortly afterwards. Take the Churriana turning and head up on a dual carriageway for about 1.7kms. Until you get to another roundabout displaying a big blue Churriana sign. Take the first right marked A7052 Cartama/Churriana. After 10 kms you'll get to a roundabout and then another one just after driving under the main A357 Campillos Road. Take the 2nd unmarked exit and this will put you onto the A357 Campillos road. After 42 kms take the Teba/Ronda turning off right from the A357 which will take you under it and there at the roundabout get onto the A367 to Ronda. Carry on for a good 40kms until you arrive at the outskirts of Ronda. At the first roundabout junction/traffic lights turn right on to the A374 Seville road. Do not go into Ronda. Continue on the Seville road for about 6kms until you see a small turning on your right. 

There will be a few signs including a blue Hotel sign for “Hotel Fuente de la Higuera”. Take this turning and follow the road which, after about 1km, will bare left and take you under a railway bridge. Continue for about 400 metres until you get to a mini roundabout and the road forks. 

Go around the roundabout and take the left hand fork marked ‘Hotel Fuente la Higuera & Hotel Molino de Arcos’, and after about 200 metres you will come to a small bridge over a little river. Cross it and immediately afterwards take the left hand turning on to a newly surfaced lane which runs roughly along the river. 

After about 1.3kms you’ll come to a big stone wall which curves to the left. Bear left onto this unmade up lane and carry on for about 200 metres until the lane turns sharply left. On this bend, opposite, are Finca Retama’s green gates. Enter here and the holiday lets are at the end of its private 200 metre drive. 

You have arrived

If you are coming from Seville direction, when nearing Ronda at about 6 kms away, you will pass on your left a big white 4 stars hotel called Hotel Don Benito. Pass this hotel and carry on the road for about 2 more kms towards Ronda. After a right-hand bend you will see a turning on your left with many signs. Take this turning and follow the road which, after about 1km, will bare left and take you under a railway bridge. Continue for about 400 metres until you get to a mini roundabout and the road forks.
