Villa Casa Soñana

Luxury Villa Rental in Ronda – Casa Soñana

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.

Experience the real Spain in comfort, and only a few minutes from Ronda, the city so loved by Orson Welles, his ashes were buried on a local farm owned by the Ordoñez family. The surrounding district is a nature lovers paradise, and is also known for world class olive oils and wines that are quickly gaining a reputation for excellence in some of the world’s best restaurants.

Villa Casa Soñana, a four bedroom luxury villa with views of Las Salinas and the Sierra de los Cumbres is situated in its own and private secluded 7 acre property, and has been described as akin to a five star luxury retreat by previous guests. However with sleeping for up to 8, personal housekeeping, and freshly cooked tapas delivery on hand, you’re sure to agree that pricing is well below that of a five star hotel.

Each bedroom is large and decorated in a tasteful contemporary style, and each has its own unique private bathroom with high pressure shower. The villa also boasts a spacious living room with large screen TV and DVD player, separate be-spoke built kitchen and sunken dining area, and all of the conveniences of home such as BBQ, pizza oven and mp3 docking station.

The villa is ideal for families or friends travelling together, and children will love the entertainment on offer, from the large swimming pool and surrounding lawn, to the selection of games and DVDs for those lazy days. Parents will appreciate the safe and comfortable environment with no traffic.

Luxury villa rentals in Spain have a distinct advantage over hotel accommodation – privacy, self catered cooking, and exclusive use of the pool – three features guests always find essential, especially come sunset when sundowners on the terrace lead into long dreamy nights with friends or family. Villa Casa Soñana is well named, soñana means dreaming in Spanish.

A week or two at Villa Casa Soñana is exactly what it aims to be, a long, enjoyable, and relaxing home away from home, in a villa that could have been designed for the rich and famous with active lifestyles for whom the welcome embrace of the villa recharges batteries away from prying eyes.

Guests are able to make exclusive use of the extensive library, or enjoy the local weather from a choice of locations, by the pool, in the gardens, or the front of the house with its period Andalucian entrance. The outdoor terrace overlooks the pool and children’s bathing pool, to a line of pine trees on the fence line, and then to the mountains surrounding Villa Casa Soñana.

Ronda, and by extension Villa Casa Soñana, is centrally located to appeal to visitors who may also want to take excursions to Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, or down to the coast, nowhere of importance is more than 2 hours drive away, though the Serranía de Ronda and the pueblos blancos are a destination in and of themselves and many guests never feel the need to travel more than a few kilometres.

From Villa Casa Soñana you are only a few minutes to Ronda’s many fine restaurants, including Tragabuches, a Michelin accredited restaurant, or del Escudero where celebrities often enjoy lunch, and why not see Ronda as Michelle Obama did with a personal tour guide. If nature is your passion, you can also enjoy private excursions for birdwatching or to see the many endemic wild flowers of the mountains.

As one of the best luxury villa rentals in Ronda, you’re sure to enjoy your stay at Villa Casa Soñana, so pop on over to their website, then when you’re ready contact the owner to make your reservation.

The countryside is varied and stunning with olive groves, rolling hills, lakes, mountains and woodland. Olvera is also the starting point for the Via Verde de la Sierra (green way) one of the many disused railway tracks across Andalucia which have been renovated for use as walking, cycling and horse-riding routes.
