La Finza Guzmana - A B&B Gem
I recently stayed with Peter Mcleod and his canine family at his rustic farmhouse retreat 4km from the ancient beautiful city of Ronda in Andalucia, Southern Spain. The recently renovated property is set amidst 5 acres of working olive groves in the open countryside and boasts spectacular mountainous views.
On arrival I was greeted by smiling faces and wagging tails. The courtyard was a haven of tranquillity with its terracotta flowerpots, trickling fountains and fairy lights by night and I relaxed in the hammock on the poolside terrace soaking up the magical scenery.
My en-suite room was both rustic in appearance and equipped with all the modern comforts perfect for a relaxing getaway. The hearty breakfast included freshly baked pastries and homemade yoghurt and seasonal fruits and was served in the farmhouse kitchen with the other guests - a perfect way to start a new day.
As well as a haven for wildlife and dramatic scenery, the area offers a huge range of activities such as climbing, horse riding, bird watching and hiking. Ronda is a true gem and should not be missed! [more ]
