We had a great stay at the White Olive for 3 nights. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. In late afternoon Will would light the fire in the living room and the dogs would come hang out with us (well behaved quiet dogs). Great location, 10 minutes from Ronda, but it feels very remote and quiet which is very nice. Nice breakfast. The only minor thing is that the bedroom and bathroom felt quite cold and damp (in november), but the blankets were lovely and warm and the bath in the bathroom makes up for it!
A very cosy and welcoming place set in a rural location surrounded by fields and olive groves. Comfortable room and wholesome breakfast with eggs form the on-site chickens.Lovely communal lounge with open fire where we spent each evening chatting to other guests and our host Alex (Will the owner was away at the time of our visit). Whilst we enjoyed our stay enormously it would only be fair to comment that the room rate was higher than what we paid in a 4* hotel prior to our visit and although our room was clean and comfortable it was not serviced during our 2 night stay.
This was a great stay made even better by a wonderful host. Will is very friendly, but also knows when to keep out of the way. He's a Brit and very helpful: we were cold, he brought in firewood for the fire and tool a heater up to our room. Stuff like that, extremely handy.
The house is lovely on a farm with olive trees, orange trees, chickens, donkey, pig, dogs, cats and sheep.
Breakfast was nice with egg and Spanish bacon (this is much better than British bacon) and a variety of breads, he also has TEA! :)
We had a great stay and couldn't recommend it more if you want a base to get into the country or Ronda. We used it to cycle from and it was great to get out into the valleys and up the mountains.
Thanks again Will, Ben
When we first came in we weren't sure what was going on. It's a farm with a pig, chickens a donkey and a big dog. The house is huge with many corners and we had an amazing bedroom. Once we settled down we could really appreciate our surroundings and all the space we had available. There's a big living room in which you can relax or watch a movie. There's a huge kitchen which has everything you might ever need. Our host was extremely helpful and friendly and we got to taste the best beer in Spain. Would certainly recommend this place.
