... in that day than ever before. We got back to the apartment changed and had dinner with a couple of glasses of wine, a really lovely end to an absolutely brilliant day.
I would never have done this day if not for Bob and Sini and was treated to the best days riding I have ever had. It was immensely enjoyable and full of learning and improvement in my riding, a day like this is always good but was perfected by being in such great company. Thanks a million ...
... motorcycle (and mobile home) travellers. Bob and Sini had planned a ride out to and around the White Villages of the Andalusian Mountains and very kindly invited me along. We set off the following morning with Bob riding lead and Sini navigating.

... town surrounding the Puente Nuevo still shows signs of the old city known as La Ciudad. We continued through the old city and walked the 231 steps deep into a water mine beneath the gardens of La Casa Del Rey Moro and saw the views from the river below. The mine was constructed by the Islamic settlement as a means to provide water to the city while under siege. You could see arrow slits and lookout areas ...

The rest of the day we spent lying on the grass and walking around town a bit; there wasn't a whole lot to see other than the buildings, but it was so beautiful seeing the surrounding scenery and all of the plants! Plus it was a great day of sunny weather, and so we could just meander and be totally happy.
That's it for trips ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Fuente De La Higuera Ronda
When La Fuente opened 5-6 years ago, I was customer number 2. I happened to be in the area and did not fancy a late night drive down to Marbella. If you have driven the mountain road from Ronda, you will know what I mean. Anyway, there was no rooms available in Ronda town and a local directed me to La Fuente.
Pom is a great host - although I agree with the other reviewers about the general service, some of the other staff, and the food - all poorer than they should be. Especially the food. Noticed a worsening too when Pom was away one day and I was completely ignored for an hour at breakfast - this would have been fine if drinks were part of the buffet, but you have to be served your tea/coffee/juice etc. Found the room to be perfect and clean - if I'd found otherwise I'd have asked for it to be cleaned.
Good check-In, Nice room and lovely setting although getting a little built up in the area - will the spanish never introduce decent planning laws?
2 draw-backs - Service was lacking on several occasions - I hate being kept witing when someone is on the phone and seems intent to ignore you and keep on talking.
Had two evening meals there and neither lived up to expectations - ate out the other three nights (do try the Michelin Star restaurant - El Tragabuche - absoulutely first class.)
Room not as clean as it should be - hate hairs on the toilet seat - that to me is unforgiveable.
Loved it, what can I say. Pom and Tina and their staff especially Frank make you feel instantly at home and relaxed. We stayed for 7 nights and once we'd calmed down from London life we really found it difficult to leave, opting for lunch and dinner at the hotel and simply taking in the tranquil surroundings. Having said that Hotel la Fuente is a great base to visit the various white towns.
Relaxation has never been so good
The Hotel is beautiful. Set right in an old olive grove gives the feeling of total peace and relaxation. The staff are all friendly and do not hesitate to to respond with the utmost hospitality to all your needs.
This hotel is an excellent choice in Summer or Winter. We should know as we have been at both times of the year! Near enough to Ronda for plenty to do but enough off the beaten track that you away in a quiet haven of your own. Spectacular views of the surrounding countryside especially if you select a bedroom with a balcony. Lovely light bedrooms and adjoining suites if you feel like a bit of luxury and space. In the hot summer you can make unlimited trips to the large honesty bar and giant fridge in the lounge/library area and help yourself to cold drinks and delicious icecream. In the cooler Winter it is lovely to sit by the open fire in your room reading a book. The best bit of all is the lovely languishing dinner taken on the terrace watching the sunset or in the cosy dining room with soft gentle music in the background. The hosts of the hotel, Tina and Pom are particularily attentive and have plenty of interesting stories to tell you. All the staff are polite and friendly. Overall this is a small intimate hotel where you will feel relaxed and chilled out. A refreshing change away from the hussle of the concrete Costas.
10 days in Andalucia - stayed at three Hotels and have posted reviews of them all - Hacienda San Rafael, La Fuente de la Higuera and La Posada del Torcal. Have put the reviews together as this may be useful if you are thinking of travelling to Andalucia.
Hit and miss service is a problem - management need to have a good look at their staff. Hotel is nice enough, room big and airy, food so,so - ate in Ronda on second and third night.
We stayed in better places in Andalucia
Just spent four days here - have a different opinion from the review above - we did better in Andalucia (see the reviews for La Posada del Torcal). Room was good - bit did not feel it was 100% clean. Biggest problem with the place was the service - just too laid back for its own good - seemed to wait for ever to get anything - you are better off going in to Ronda to eat - really recommend the Michelin starred restaurant El Tragabuche.
A wonderful, romantic retreat set in an olive grove
This place is not just a gem, it's a diamond. The lovely (English-speaking) hosts have converted an old olive mill into a charming, stylish, romantic retreat set among an atmosphereic olive grove. The kitchen cooks fabulous meals and the lingering evenings are filled with wine and great music. In the late afternoon, the hosts offer homemade cakes for those who need a little something to eat before dinner. The rooms are spacious and well decorated (simple color palate, Balinese hardwood furniture). Each has a balcony or a deck where you can have breakfast if you want. I can't recommend this place enough for those who are willing to stay a few short kilometers outside of Ronda.
