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

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)→
Close to the road joining Sevilla with Granada, a historically important route in Andalucia, travelers will come across a rock formation outside Antequera on the Archidona side of the city with the look of a human face staring up into the heavens.
Known the Peña de los Enamorados, or in English either Lover’s Rock or Lover’s Leap, the rock has been immortalized by the likes of Cervantes, Washington Irving, and Lorenzo Valla to name just a few. The rock dominates the horizon and due to the legend of the doomed lovers has become an instantly recognizable symbol of the city.
Back in 2009 Cruzcampo’s premium product, the Gran Reserva won gold at the awards for the World’s Best Strong Lager, and whilst the beer is available for sale internationally there can be no doubt enjoying an ice cold glass in Spain is preferable.
Even in winter if the sun is shining you’ll see connoisseurs of fine lagers sipping the Gran Reserva appreciatively with a plate of Jamon Iberica and Queso Curado in front of them. Ronda’s Plaza del Socorro, the Plaza Alameda, or Calle Comandante Salvador Carrasco are three of the best locations for enjoying the sun all year round.

Any visitor to the old part of Sevilla will no doubt notice the sleek silver trams that run the length of Avenida Constitucion past the cathedral terminating in Plaza Nueva. In the other direction the tram terminates at the San Bernardo railway station.
It’s tempting to ride the tram just for the experience, but unless you live in Sevilla you’ll find the route quite limiting. Plans are afoot to extend the service over the Guadalquivir River and into Triana but as at November 2011 this hasn’t happened.
Tickets for the tram costs 1.30€ for a one way trip, and if you’re staying in the city for more than a day it’s better to buy a bonobus ticket (3.75€ for a day) which lets you travel by tram and bus simply by swiping your card.
Future plans for the tram involve extending the line to Santa Justa AVE station, and through the main shopping precinct to Santa Catalina.
Current stops are Plaza Nueva, Avenida Constitucion, Puerta de Jerez (university), Prado de San Sebastian (bus station), and San Bernardo.
For the discerning guest intending to relax and really enjoy their time in Andalucia, Villa Casa Soñana offers the perfect oasis away from the stresses of city life, whilst at the same time offering all of the comforts of home, including Wi-Fi Internet.
