"If you fancy having your portrait painted while you lounge in the garden, Gabriella, the owner of this lovely old farmhouse, is an artist and lives locally. The villa is in a sleepy valley near Ronda, surrounded by gardens, terraced fields and orchards."

The Guardian

An Insiders' Guide

"GREEN RETREATS: Cut your carbon footprint by staying in a self-catering villa at stunning farmstead La Alcantarilla, near Ronda. The owners have renovated the properties sustainably and encourage you to plant a tree or two, as well as offering you the run of their organic vegetable garden and orchards."

The Telegraph

Alcantarilla in Ronda is not a hotel, but it offers five-star hotel service

"A gorgeous seven-bedroom villa set in the hills, this is the perfect place to escape if you want a family holiday without any other families – and with plenty of glorious nooks and crannies.

The villa's owners act more like a concierge, offering up the services of a cook (we ate delicious tapas and paella), spa treatments and even pilates and yoga instructors who provided excellent classes right there in the stunning gardens. Bliss. "
