La Cazalla is one of the most peaceful places in the Serrania de Ronda and yet, despite its quiet location, it takes less than 10 minutes to reach the hustle and bustle of the oldest part of Ronda, with its stunning vistas, picturesque architecture and winding streets full of restaurants, bars and boutiques. A luxury villa rental situated just outside the old town of Ronda, surrounded by ancient, oak-forested hills and the dramatic cliffs of the Tajo Del Abanico (the Gorge of the Fan).

The area around La Cazalla has barely changed since the Romans, and later the Moors, inhabited it. Once here a feeling of peace prevails: the sounds of insects buzzing, birds singing, bells jangling on goats in the forest and the breeze rustling the leaves on the trees. It is difficult to spot any other sign of human life, and yet the sense that man has lived in this valley for thousands of years is very strong.

 
 

Nearby, the pretty ‘Peublos Blancos’ ('white villages') make for a wonderful, scenic drive. Further afield the cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites of Granada, Seville and Cordoba are all around 2 hours drive from Ronda - perfectly feasible as day trips to discover the fascinating heart of Andalucía. In the opposite direction, 45 minutes away on the Mediterranean coast, lies the glitz and glamour of Marbella and Puerto Banus.

The area around Ronda offers a multitude of possibilities for activity: hiking (the GR7 passes through Ronda, which is surrounded by several sections of the Great Malaga Path) and biking are very popular, as well as mountain climbing, canoeing, birding, photography, painting, horse riding, paragliding, tennis and, on the coast, golf.

Discover the historic charm of Ronda

Despite being Andalucía's fastest-growing town, Ronda retains much of its historic charm, particularly within its old town (recently surpassing even Córdoba in popularity). It is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its centre. You will be awed by the 18th century Puente Nuevo ('new bridge'), which straddles the 100m chasm below, and delight in its incredible views out over the Serranía de Ronda mountains. Don't forget to charge up your camera!

Baños Arabes

The Arab Baths ('Baños Arabes') are one of Ronda’s most important tourist attractions and the best preserved in Spain. Dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries, the baths contained technology invented by Islamic engineer Abu al Tz ibn Razaz Al-Jazari (1136-1206). Similar to the design perfected by the Romans, the ruins are well preserved and make for an interesting and informative tour. A short animated presentation (5 minutes) provides the perfect introduction.

Puento Neuvo

Completed in 1793, the historic 'New Bridge' is an astonishing piece of architecture and engineering with an enthralling history. Described as "one of the greatest sights in Spain", this beautiful bridge standing 98m/321ft high provides incredible views of the Tajo Gorge and Serranía de Ronda mountains. Now a museum, parts of the span column were used as a prison for bandits and dangerous criminals during the 19th century, and then for political prisoners during the Spanish civil war. A must-see.

Plaza de Toros

The Plaza de Toros is the home of the Rondeño style of bullfighting and the Real Maestranza De Caballería (Royal Cavalry) de Ronda - Spain’s oldest and most noble order of horsemanship. Built entirely of stone in the 18th century, during the golden years of Pedro Romero’s reign as champion bullfighter. The Real Maestranza de Caballería can trace its heritage back to 1485, and the year the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella defeated the Moors in Ronda, thus bringing the city back under Christian rule after 773 years of Islamic rule.
