a nice and exciting place for relaxation and to enjoy the good life. Felt us immediately at home after meeting the host and his four-legged friends. A cozy little village with good restaurants nearby.
A few minutes (10 -15)drive to the beautiful and chaming town Ronda.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with friends

Stayed at The White Olive for a week and from start to finish was amazing. The house is gorgeous, very traditional and well kept. Our little boy who is 7, loves all the animals, especially the dogs, Max and Minnie.. Will, the host is a top bloke, insuring we had a comfortable stay and nothing was too much trouble. The scenery is beautiful and I would highly recommend this place to anyone who simply wants to get away from the hussle and bussle..we hope to visit again and we will remember this place forever.

A very cosy and welcoming place set in a rural location surrounded by fields and olive groves. Comfortable room and wholesome breakfast with eggs form the on-site chickens.Lovely communal lounge with open fire where we spent each evening chatting to other guests and our host Alex (Will the owner was away at the time of our visit). Whilst we enjoyed our stay enormously it would only be fair to comment that the room rate was higher than what we paid in a 4* hotel prior to our visit and although our room was clean and comfortable it was not serviced during our 2 night stay.

The property has fig trees, olive trees, walnut trees, lime trees... This means you get to enjoy (eat) all of this beauty. Senior donkey will happily great you as you arrive in the property and the two dogs are the friendliest characters you will ever find. There are chickens, pigs, sheep, and beautiful cats. In other words, a real farm!

The owner Will works tirelessly to make sure the whole place runs smoothly and is clean at all time. Not only this but he has the right attitude and is what you would expect of a true English gentleman. He will kindly share a cerveza with you, just like he knows not to impose or when you want to keep your privacy.

The swimming pool is very large and good enough to put in a work out if you are a swimmer (ie: you don't have to continuously do flip turns). The house itself is an old farm house that Will has restored over the last 20 years - a lot of the original features have been kept, the terracotta tiles throughout the house are aesthetically very pleasing - the rooms have everything in them and the kitchen is extremely spacious and accommodates the multiple guests. There are 3 BBQ pits around the property which will allow you plenty of time to test your charcoaling skills...

We stayed at the property 8 days and it is ideally located for the day trips we took in Seville, Cadiz, and Granada. The thing we kept on hearing from other guests is their regret not to have spent more time at the property. There were couples with and without children, and all enjoyed it.

We will be back!
Jean-Paul (writing on my wife's account as I do not have an account but I felt like I needed to express my thank to the host)

Pro tip: Type in Calle De Marquez, Ronda in your GPS to find the place. Once you get on that road it is well indicated.

Room Tip: Call the host to ask him about the different rooms

This was a great stay made even better by a wonderful host. Will is very friendly, but also knows when to keep out of the way. He's a Brit and very helpful: we were cold, he brought in firewood for the fire and tool a heater up to our room. Stuff like that, extremely handy.

The house is lovely on a farm with olive trees, orange trees, chickens, donkey, pig, dogs, cats and sheep.

Breakfast was nice with egg and Spanish bacon (this is much better than British bacon) and a variety of breads, he also has TEA! :)

We had a great stay and couldn't recommend it more if you want a base to get into the country or Ronda. We used it to cycle from and it was great to get out into the valleys and up the mountains.

Thanks again Will, Ben
