About Michelle

Having searched through Southern Italy, France and Spain over the last five years for a holiday home, it seems quite uncanny that we should settle on Ronda as my husband and I are both from the Rhondda in South Wales. We are Michelle and Dave and are more than happy to share our little 'home from home' with you as we know that you will enjoy Ronda and all it has to offer as much as we do. We always look forward to our next visit and enjoy sharing our adopted second home with our family and friends. Who knows, perhaps in years to come we may be able to spend more time in Ronda and less in the Rhondda.

Michelle purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Michelle chose Ronda area

We stumbled across Ronda quite by chance at the beginning of 2011 after looking for a holiday home in other parts of the world. We immediately fell in love with the area and the friendliness of the people. The apartment is in a perfect location, set on a quiet side street yet close enough to all attractions, shops, restaurants & bars, making it easy to get around town without having to drive but it's also close to the beautiful countryside. The coast is only a 45 minute drive away and is great for a day out but it's always nice to get back to Ronda. Real Spain!

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy the slower way of life in Ronda, watching the mist rise on the mountains in the early morning and the warmth of the winter sun makes this place very special. The wood burning stove on winter evenings makes the apartment homely and the spectacular views from the roof terrace are second to none.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nearing the end of our 9 week vacation and this has to be our favourite so far. Cannot fault anything, an absolute oasis!! From first email to our final farewells this has been the perfect stay . . . . except for one thing!!! Just not long enough. Will start cleaning up our place for that house swap!



Thanks (gracia, mucho gracia) Michelle & Dave

Excellent apartment with all facilities in an excellent location for the shops & sightseeing. Could not have found a better place to stay for out first visit to Ronda! Was worth getting a car from Malaga Cars as suggested by Michelle as we were able to visit 'Cueva de la Pilates'. It was my husbands 50th birthday & we got him a surprise race day at Ascari which is only minutes from Ronda. He said it was 'Awesome'.



Thanks for letting us stay!!

Ronda Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Ronda is a beautiful Spanish city and this excellently located apartment offered an excellent base to explore all that Ronda and the surrounding area has to offer. Michelle offered excellent advice on restaurants etc. before we arrived and Claire, who met us in Ronda, was exceptionally helpful. The apartment is just outside of the old city on a quiet cobbled street. We had a hire car and were able to park for free just a short walk from the apartment on a flat section of road near the 8 spout fountain. Finding the apartment was a little tricky but once we arrived in Ronda we phoned Claire who came to meet us. Basically the apartment is very near the puente Nuevo, once you cross the bridge take the immediate first right at the cross roads turn left and follow the road round until you begin to go downhill, at this point try and park, the 8 spout fountain is at the bottom of the hill.

Excellent Apartment in the heart of Ronda

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Ronda.

This is a lovely apartment, very well fitted out, comfortable and clean, with a roof terrace to sit out on.

Michelle was very helpful sending us all the information we needed. We were then met on arrival and shown around the apartment and given further great advice on what to do in Ronda.

The apartment is very close to the old part of Ronda, the bridge over the gorge and the main shopping area.

I had a problem finding the apartment, but that was because I was using a sat nav with 8 year old maps, and it kept trying to take me the wrong way up one way streets. When I switched to Google Map navigation the problem was solved. Having said that, the apartment is situated on a very narrow one way street on a steep hill, with difficult access by car. To park there unattended a resident's permit is required to be displayed in the car (I only found this out after asking the people living in the apartment below). We found parking places with a certain amount of difficulty in neighbouring streets. (We noticed that almost all the 'native' cars in Ronda had scratches and/or bumps on their wings from parking right up beside houses!)

Ronda is a lovely town with lots to see and do, plenty of good restaurants, and lovely countryside and villages within easy access.

We had very good weather and were able to go on several beautiful walks in and around Ronda and the surrounding mountains.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review David! I'm so pleased that you and Valerie had a comfortable stay at our apartment and enjoyed Ronda and the surrounding countryside. As the apartment is in the historic area with its cobbled, narrow streets, driving and parking can sometimes be a little challenging, so if asked, I do advise guests on the best places to park etc. This has reminded me though that I should add this to our 'Guest Notes' so that any future guests will be forewarned before arriving in Ronda so thank you for bringing this to my attention. Best wishes, Michelle

Superb base

  • 4 of 5

As a family of four with 2 teenage daughters we found the apartment to be more spacious than expected. It is clearly well looked after with everything we needed. The apartment is centrally located with the old town only a few minutes walk away, as is the village swimming pool which was a real find on hot days. We had a car and found so much to do in the area, especially around the pueblo Blanco's (Zahara a favourite) that the time went too quickly. Beaches and even Morocco were within an easy drive. Highly Recommended.

Superb stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The apartment is perfectly placed for exploring the main streets in Ronda and less than a 5 minute walk from the Puente Nuevo that is the link to the old town. Ronda is a fabulous place to explore and everyone is so friendly. There are so many places to eat and drink, of all price ranges, though we found that it was very inexpensive everywhere in general. It was extremely hot when we were there (almost 40c) but the accommodation was great and the ceiling fans helped us cool down when it was advisable to stay indoors. We couldn't have wanted for anything. Michelle and Dave had thought of everything, from a good selection of books, films and games, a sewing kit and everything you need on a roof terrace. The views from the top are spectacular and we spent many a lazy evening up there as it was cooler and breezy after 7pm. The hose pipe was perfect for cooling our feet! Ronda is definitely somewhere we would visit again. Thank you Michelle and Dave for the use of your lovely home.

Ronda

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the apartment for a week in late June with my wife Gillian and baby boy Daragh,

First of all, Ronda is a beautiful place to visit.

The apartment was spacious and finished to a very high standard throughout, filled with tasteful furniture and fittings.

Quite unlike alot of holiday rentals which can be clinical with poor fixtures.

The beds were new and very comfortable and the apartment stayed cool throughout our stay in spite of the July heat.

The location couldn't be better,a short stroll to the stunning bridge of Ronda and only one minute from the main square although still located in a quiet Spanish setting.

Michelle,the owner, was also very helpful to any queries we had through e mail.

There is also a terrace with stunning views of the surrounding area which we used in the evenings.

We will definately return and I couldn't recommend it highly enough if visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great comments about our apartment! It's always nice to know when clients enjoy the place as much as we do. I know you intend to return to Ronda in the Autumn so we'd would love to welcome you to back the apartment as you treated the place so well and even looked after the plants during your stay. Very best wishes, Michelle
