Discover La Cazalla De Ronda

A beautiful private villa rental in the heart of Andalusia

Overview - Casa Principal - el nido - LOS JARDINES


An Overview of La Cazalla

Made up of a 5 bedroom ‘Casa Principal’ and 1 bedroom private suite ‘El Nido’, La Cazalla is fully equipped with all the comforts you would expect from a luxury villa rental, but more importantly all the extra little things that will make you feel at home as well.  We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a secluded, private retreat where they are completely at home, but with a few of the perks of staying in a hotel – beautiful bed linen and towels, daily maid service (except Sundays) and a gardener who takes care of the pool and the grounds.  

We offer a pre-arrival shopping service, so that you don't have to worry about what you are going to eat and drink the moment you arrive.  During your stay, you don't necessarily always want to cook, and we are very pleased to offer several options - a Simple Supper of traditional paella or parillada prepared by us, 'Casual Dining' menus for a three-course meal, served for you in the dining room or on the terrace.or a very special fine dining experience prepared by our private chef.   Whatever the needs of your party, please let us know, and we will do our utmost to ensure a memorable stay.


We have a housekeeper who will come every day for 2 hours to make the beds, clean the bathrooms and generally keep the house clean and tidy (except Sundays). If you would like to have more help we can certainly make arrangements for you - just let us know in advance and we will be happy to help. We also have a gardener who cleans the pool and keeps the terraces and grounds neat and tidy.

  • Unlimited free WiFi
  • Beautiful bed linen
  • Soft bathroom towels
  • Swimming pool towels
  • Hair dryers in all the bedrooms
  • Molton Brown toiletries
We were over the moon at how excited everyone was by the house - it was simply perfect for what we wanted to do.

Casa Principal

The main house at luxury villa rental ronda


Originally a finca (farm/ranch), La Cazalla stands seemingly-alone in a scenic fertile valley, just 10 minutes' drive from the historical and fascinating town of Ronda. The main house and surrounding buildings of this luxury holiday rental blend naturally into the landscape, having been built around the native rock (see photos of our living areas within the main house). With a total of six bedrooms, our home is perfect for families, friends and group activities for up to 12 people looking for a private villa in Andalusia.

We grow our own organic olives, apricots, pears, figs, citrus fruits, walnuts and almonds, quince, persimmon, blackberries, mulberries and raspberries (making delicious jams/jellies!) and lavender (scented sachets under your pillow are renowned for aiding relaxation and a good night's sleep). 


The main house is elegant, cool and spacious, with many different areas for a large group to spread out and relax. Discover three tastefully-furnished living areas on split levels, a kitchen and a dining room, providing plenty of space for your family and friends to read, play card games, watch a film or listen to music. Sleep soundly in the five double or twin bedrooms with en suite bathrooms containing beautiful mosaic tiled walk-in showers and adjustable mood lighting. And yes, there is WiFi!


El NidO

Our one bedroom private suite

The Casa Principal is always rented along with El Nido, which is a large air-conditioned private suite attached to the main house. The suite has its own entrance, pretty terrace and bathroom (with the same mosaic tiled walk-in showers as the main house), and contains a TV, WiFi, wireless speakers, and has its own kettle and fridge. A perfect place for members of your group who need or desire a space of their own with the benefit of air conditioning.



Our well-supplied kitchen was designed for a professional chef and provides all the cooking utensils and basic pantry items you need to prepare meals for a large group, such as:

  • Professional 4 ring stove and oven

  • Dishwasher

  • Large fridge/freezer

  • Microwave

  • Coffee-maker

  • Juicer

  • Toaster

  • Washing machine and a tumble dryer

  • Laundry soap

  • Iron and ironing board

  • Dish cloths and paper towels

Living Areas

There are 3 luxurious lounges on different levels and the dining room is very atmospheric, with 2 of its walls set into the natural rock. The dining table comfortably seats 12 and sufficient china and cutlery are provided.  For your enjoyment we also have:

  • An open fire

  • Two TVs with UK TV service

  • DVDs

  • Mobile Bose music system with wireless connectivity

  • A games corner and hundreds of books


Los Jardines

Our Grounds


Outside Areas

Our Roman-inspired pool is only heated naturally by the sun, but it is surrounded by fragrant lavender and stunning views.  For your comfort there are:

  • 12 sun loungers
  • Garden seats and a table
  • Shaded areas
  • Gas barbeque
  • Cold freshwater showers fed straight from our spring

and many different terraces surround the house, with areas for relaxing, dining, snoozing and admiring the view.  You will also find a selection of outdoor games, such as boules and badminton.

Los Jardines

There are so many different spots to choose from, you’ll be hard-pressed deciding what to do!

  • Follow our Nature Trail all around our 13 acres 
  • Read in the lounge chairs on the terrace
  • Dine under the vine-covered pergola
  • Search for tadpoles in the stream
  • Stroll along to the 12th Century ‘alberca’ ('water cistern')

We recommend taking a drink up to the old threshing circle and watch the sun change the colours of the gorge from orange to pink. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the deer as the owls start hooting.


Notes & Suitability

The house is very cool, even though only the kitchen and El Nido have air-conditioning. All of the bedrooms have efficient ceiling fans with three speeds and remote control. As long as you close all the windows after breakfast, open them only when the sun is low, and leave them open all night long, the house will remain at a comfortably fresh temperature. All the windows are protected with insect screens. 

Children are welcome and while pets are not normally allowed, we will consider if you wish to bring your dog - please just check with us first. Unfortunately the property is not accessible by wheelchair. There is no smoking inside the house.
