Ronda's most romantic place to stay
Style and comfort in beautifully-converted 18th century gem
WANT to feel the weight of history in the heart of Andalucia's most evocative town?
Ronda Romántica Apartments provide an atmospheric - yet luxurious - way to experience life in this mountaineous country gem, which has charmed writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles over the centuries.
This converted 18th century townhouse counts on its original beamed and vaulted ceilings, it's terracota barro floors and pantile roof - but also counts on vital modern amenities, such as air conditioning and fast WiFi.
The former home of a torero - who was painted by Goya and constructed Ronda's historic bullring - it has maintained the hallmarks of its once prestigious life.
Now divided into five apartments, each sleeping up to six people, it features four poster beds and period furniture as well as plasma-screen TVs and well-appointed kitchens.
It also counts on a shady garden, internal patio and even a splash pool to cool off in after a long day's sightseeing. Three of the apartments have private terraces.
In the 'casco histórico', just metres from the ancient Arabic gate of Almocobar that led into the fortified citadel on the town, you are only 10 minutes walk to all of Ronda's key tourist sites.
Even better, you are staying in one of the least spoilt barrios of the charming mountain town, which is one of the quietest and closest to reach the famous Tajo gorge.
Indeed, you are just 200 metres from the start of the famous walk down into the valley below the famous bridge and just a five minute stroll into wonderful mountain scenery in the other direction.
Best of all you are next to the celebrated San Francisco square, which counts on a trio of Ronda's best restaurants, including Almocobar and Zucio.
