This was the perfect location for relaxation, but close enough to walk into Ronda.
The house was really pleasant, well equiped and spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was taken care of by Salvador and his father, but we were left to enjoy the house and grounds in peace. Our two dogs were in heaven. We are already thinking of our next trip back Casa Escalona.
We stayed as a family of 7 in July 2017. The booking was made with ease and I was reassured that I could contact the host, Salvador with any queries. His father met us to show us around the property and popped in throughout our stay to clean the pool, tend to the olive trees, or hold numerous conversations with our youngest son who followed him around The property is in a quiet position with beautiful views. It's very traditional and exactly what we wanted. You do need a car to shop in the numerous supermarkets in town, as you couldn't really do without. However one night me and my husband got dropped into town and had an easy walk back up the hill from the delightful bars (in my opinion the best area for food and drink) in the barrio San Francisco. The property itself and the pool are perfect, everything you need for a relaxing break. It was very hot when we were there and there isn't any air conditioning, however there are fans. After the first night - a combination of adjusting to the heat and working out how to manage to get the best out of the fans we were fine. I have to say it was only the adults who struggled on the first night, the 3 children didn't seem to mind. it would might things easier if there was an electric kettle, though that's just a minor thing. The bbq is brill and so is the downstairs kitchen which we did all our cooking. There is no oven but you really don't need it with the bbq. In the summer you will not be cooking inside with the glorious produce to buy!! It's a beautiful area. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Lovely memories made. Salvador - your father is an absolute delight!! Thank you so much for his wonderful way with our children, even giving them money for sweets at the airport. We will return as soon as possible, thank you xx
We spent a week here, and really enjoyed the quiet setting of the house - in a private olive grove. It was further from Ronda town than we had hoped, so we had to drive in, but worth it for the views and the peace. Fantastic swimming pool and area around it, barbecue, table under the shade, sunbeds. The house itself is spacious and comfortable, though perhaps some more basic cutlery and cooking implements would be good - an electric kettle in particular, as the current enamel pot for boilling water is a bit dangerous, as the lid falls off! Overall, a lovely place for a relaxing break, a good base from which to explore this beautiful area and we had a very warm welcome from the host's Dad. Thoroughly recommend.
Very close to the city, but surrounded by silent. It is well equipped with every thing we needed, even in the very cold days, plenty of wood and heaters were available to make the whole house confortable. Well managed arrival, stay and departure. We will come back as soon as posible.
The place is really convenient since it only takes 5 minutes to get to Ronda. The house has the typical Andalusian style and a large swimming pool. Our host was very nice and helpful. l really enjoyed the view, such an amazing view of Ronda and the countryside. You will forget about the city and will enjoy of a peaceful and lovely place to enjoy with your family or friends.
