Before we left the UK we were sure we had made the right decision. The booking experience alone confirmed we had a very good landlord. The whole process was made completely easy and communication was speedy and helpful.
As the car pulled up at the end of the drive, we were met by a spectacular l view of the Villa and backdrop.
The villa was just as the web photos showed it to be. Large, spacious, beautifully designed and equipped. All the furnishings were clean and modern. The kitchen was well laid out and equipped with almost everything you could possibly need. Immediately outside the kitchen is a built in BBQ and Pizza/Bread oven, so handy for preparation and cooking.
As soon as you walked onto the garden, the stunning view hit you like a large wave. Just sitting by the pool, on the terrace, in the shade of the large weeping willows and staring out across the small valley was simply lovely.
The design of the villa was superb, with a large through lounge, dining area and library all blending in to form a huge area. We thoroughly enjoyed playing cards and quiz games at night after a very tasty BBQ.
All bedrooms are very well equiped, each with its own shower and bath, all immaculately clean and wanting for nothing.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and come along to refresh the villa during the stay.
There is a lot of information in the lounge regarding places to visit and to eat. There is no shortage of really good quality restaurants around Arriate and Rhonda. Also, you can get almost anything you need in a very short journey.
To give you an insight to the level of service at the villa, we had a small problem with the refridgerator and sent Jill ( the lovely owner) a message to see if anything could be done.Within a few hours, we had a reply apologising, informing us the a brand new appliance would be delivered asap and a beautiful present of local food and wine to say sorry.
All in all, I have to say that the villa, the views, the local area, are just wonderful and we would recommend Villa Casa Sonana very highly and we would certainly consider returning.

I couldn't rate this villa highly enough. We stayed at Villa Casa Sonana for week this July and could have stayed for a month or more. Everything was very comfortable, well designed and beautifully organised. My four children spent most of the holiday in the fabulous pool which was visible from both the garden and the villa. The garden was very spacious, complete with a pretty fruit orchard ripe with apricots, plums and figs - a childs, and adults, paradise! The views were wonderful across the olive groves and hills of Ronda. The owner has written down every sight, shop and restauant worth visiting in the area so we were never at a loss for things to do. We would definately come back!
A beautifully designed and furnished Villa with all of the amenities that we could have wished for. Scenic views and set in a tranquil location. Highly efficient and friendly organisation by the UK based owners, and by the local management team. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
I have just returned returned from Casa Sonana having spent a memorable 50th birthday there with my family. The villa is beautiful and it's position is just perfect. It's everything you'd expect a luxury Spanish villa to be and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. I can't recommend it highly enough and I am already booking for next year.
Beautiful house, breathtaking location. Spotlessly clean. Everything is there that you could possibly need for a quiet relaxing holiday. Words simply can't praise it enough.
