La Perla Blanca is located just a 10 minute drive from Ronda on the road to Seville in the fertile valley known as Los Prados. This Boutique Bed & Breakfast is gently nestled within its own working Vineyards, and proudly welcomes you in casual elegance, to rural Spain.
Opened in 2014, La Perla Blanca offers 5 spacious rooms with King size beds and a modern style en-suite bathrooms. Each has been individually and charmingly decorated following a subtle name and colour scheme, and most have balconies with views over the vineyards or central courtyard. A private and independent King-size suite with canopy bed, and private garden with hot-tub is also available, situated near the pool.
Every morning a daily gourmet breakfast basket is placed outside your room, filled with freshly baked bread and croissants, locally sourced Iberico ham and cheeses, freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade preserves and much more.
At La Perla Blanca guests can cool off in the crystal clear swimming pool any time of day or night, and the pool is open all year. The Andalusian courtyard, or “Patio Andaluz”, is dotted with potted lemon trees and flowers; with a relaxing water feature on one wall and acacia trees dotted throughout, its definitely the perfect place to take time out and enjoy this exquisite yet traditionally Spanish way of life, perhaps with a glass of Perla Blanca wine from the 24 hour honesty bar.
Free parking is available to all guests and there are 2 excellent
restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the property.
The Cortijo is open all year round for bookings apart from December and January
Ronda is one of the oldest towns in Europe, people have lived in the district for more than 30,000 years, and Ronda has been occupied for 9,000 years.
If you’re planning to visit Ronda here are the top things to do to help you enjoy your holiday. Ronda is a small city, and almost everything is within 500m of the Puento Nuevo bridge. Tourist office maps are printed in Spanish, English, German, French, Dutch, and Italian.
Pork is a staple of the Andalucian diet and has been so for six hundred years. In the times of religious intolerance, when Jewish and Arabic people were being expelled from Spain, the Andalucians made a point of cultivating a cuisine which would be offensive to those “infidels” who chose to stay! We live in far more tolerant circumstances today, and we can enjoy our culinary heritage with easy consciences. Continue reading Albóndigas Claras (“Pale” Meatballs)→
Welcome to one of Spain’s most visited cities (and for good reason.) Our little city is very compact and in fact from arriving in Ronda, to seeing the Real Maestranza bullring, the Puente Nuevo and El Tajo gorge, the many beautiful churches, our museums, or the wonderful coffee shops and tapas bars, we have it all within a short 30 minute walk.
The Aire De Ronda is located in the popular and historic Padre Jesus district of Ronda, and is only a short walk to the Puente Arabe and Arab Baths. The hotel is designed on bespoke lines, and is more reminiscent of a Bed and Breakfast than a hotel with only three rooms, assuring peace and quiet during your stay.
All rooms are decorated individually and with elegance in mind, and are all equipped with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi internet access, en suite bathroom, bathrobes, and comfortable furnishings.
An interior courtyard and garden in the hotel provides a great place for guests to relax. The hotel restaurant provides a seasonal menu of modern cuisine, and is able to make tapas or sandwiches on request. A bar is also available, and the front desk is manned 24 hours for the convenience of guests.
The eleven room Molino Cuatro Paradas is a small rural hotel with its own unique charm. This hotel is located at the southern edge of the Sierra de Grazalema natural park making it an ideal destination for tourists who want to be close to nature.
The rooms of the hotel have terraces giving guests a good vantage point to enjoy the scenery around the hotel, including the mountains towering above. All rooms include an en suite bathroom, air-conditioning, satellite TV, coffee or tea making facilities, and some have their own private balcony.
Dating from 1663, the Iglesia de los Trinitarios Descalzos as it was first known, was the third home of the Order of Descalzed Nuns of Ronda, who nowadays are located in the convent attached to the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Merced.
The plaza in front of the church, Plaza Los Descalzos, still retains the name of the order. An older Christian chapel, the “Ermita del Cristo de las Penas o Peñas” occupied this site from mid 16th century, being demolished to make way for the church you see today. In 1836 the Descalzed Order vacated the church and convent, and a school was established on the site using the church as their chapel. Continue reading Iglesia de Santa Cecilia→
