... carving on a well groomed blue piste, where you felt comfortable enough to lean over and let your ski edges bite and do what they’re designed to do. It was similar in this case, the bends were not too tight and it was very comfortable leaning from side to side in almost a swaying action, working in unison with a machine that wanted to do exactly that. There weren’t many blue runs though!
We must have ridden a couple of hundred ...
Riding with Bob and Sini
I met Bob and Sini at Mont St Michele at the beginning of my trip. We met where the motorcycles parked and ended up walking around most of the Mont together, we exchanged details and kept in touch via e mail. Bob and Sin had rented a timeshare for the week in Marbella and I was heading to Gibraltar so we agreed to meet up.
Finding a resort that had changed its name in Marbella was a challenge in itself, luckily I stopped ...
Feeling a little overwhelmed after packing up all our lives again and saying goodbye to loved ones... We are flying to Nottingham today to spend a few day with our nearest and dearest there, before going to the wedding of our dear friend Neil. We will update from ...
... br> While not visited, the Plaza de Toros is the site of the 1785 Real Maestranza de Ronda bullring, where the "fight" was conducted for the first time with a sword. The bullring is the stage of the Goyesque style bullfights every year.
I might add that I always remained a healthy distance from the cliff edge, not like one **** who stood on a stone wall above, ABOVE, a 120m straight drop to the river for a photo opportunity!
... here and in other Spanish cities we´ve now visited, I am struck with number of times these old cities have been conquered and taken over by someone, mostly in the name of some deity. I am also aware that the more I learn the more I realize I do not know. And, as we approach Christopher Columbus Day (a national holiday here in Spain), I´ve become tired of hearing about how he ¨discovered¨ America. I suspect the Native Americans take issue with that even more than I do.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Enfrente Arte Ronda
We stayed here for two nights in early March. It was my boyfriend's birthday so we opted for a deluxe room with our own terrace.
My husband & I stayed here in early January 2006. We were in Ronda for 2 nights. We truly enjoyed the games room & library. We played numerous rounds of pool & had a lovely time. We didn't really socialise with other guests, but easily could have. There was an Australian family & a Spanish couple there while we were.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Ronda which is a little bit different then this is the place to go! The rooms are all uniquely designed and appointed while the hotel itself is deceptively large with so many little areas, rooms, terraces and balconies that you'd swear weren't there before. The breakfast is good with a wide selection of things to try - and don't miss the little fried bread balls with chocolate sauce (never mind the wasteline - you're on holiday!) The free, help-yourself bar is a great perk whilst the staff are extremely friendly and always willing to help.
We stayed in Ronda for just one night, but this charming hotel would have in itself convinced us to stay more. It is full of nooks and cranies with surprises, like tropical birds and fish and wonderful views. But the service was what really made it. Dimitri really took the time to welcome you in and help you around. The drinks were all free (including wine and beer), the breakfast was wonderful, as well as the internet, and all of this tells the guests "you are welcome here" which is not that comon in Spain. We stayed in the tower room which is fun but I would not advise it for those who have trouble with stairs.
This is a truly nice hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Interesting design, more charming than perhaps beautiful:). You make your own espresso, wine, water, soda is included and you help your self with beverages. Breakfast is EXCELLENT, pancakes, fruit, warm bread and croissants, different cheeses, yoghurt. Free internet but maybe there should be a time limit for usage so you do not have to wait so long for others to finish? Elderly people could have a problem walking to centre it takes less than 10 minutes so distance is not a problem but very steep uphill slope from hotel to centre. No problem for me or my parents. Reading lights in room could be better for reading on the bed.
We recently spent three nights at the Hotel Enfrente Arte in Ronda. This picturesque town and surrounding area are definitely worth a visit, as is this unique hotel.
Didn't want to leave
This is definitely the coolest hotel I have ever stayed in. The decor is fabulous - eclectic, rustic, stylish and fun. My husband and I spent 3 nights here and we just loved it. Our room was very comfortable and cosy and I loved the bathroom tiling and neat wrought iron fixtures. There are great views to be had from the various terraces and the landscaping is so appealing. We helped ourselves to beer and wine from the open bar and there was enough food in the chilled cabinets to virtually last all day. I would go back to Rhonda again just to stay here.
Absolutely wonderful didnt want to leave!
Add me to the list of people who will go back..travelling alone with two children we found this hotel and it was simply wonderful..not plush but comfortable and very welcoming with great funky accomodation and facilities. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and its situation is great LOVED IT!
The Enfrente Arte Hotel in the beautiful town of Ronda is quite possibly the best hotel i have ever stayed in and i have travelled extensively around europe over the last 10 years staying in all grades of hotel from hostels to 5 stars.
