Arriadh Hotel


Ronda

The Dutch John and Wilbert are since 2013 the proud owners of this hotel Arriad, the year in which they decided to change their lives.
The hotel was bought and reformed to modern standards.

The result is impressive.
It´s a small scaled hotel with 6 rooms of which 3 are based at the ground floor and 3 at the first floor.
The rooms at the ground floor are still in the rustic style but an advantage of staying in one of them is that you can step out of your room into the gardens and your private terrace.

The rooms at the first floor are reformed to modern style bedrooms. When you wake up you will be treated on stunning views from your spacious bed followed by a refreshing shower under the large rain shower in the modern bathroom.

The hotel is situated just outside the Andalucian village Arriate which is about a 15 minute drive from Ronda.
It is based in the hills, the views are magic.

The owners John and Wilbert are enthusiastic hosts who are on request willing to prepare a nice dinner for you in case you don´t want to leave in the evening.
Breakfast is great with a lot of fresh local products and an a la carte service in case you have special wishes.
During the day you can make use of a bar and tapas can be prepared for you.
In case you have questions about the surroundings, the owners are more than willing to give you a lot of information about the possibilities.

We knew the hotel some time already but since this new fresh energy which went through the hotel we are more than willing to offer it in one of our tailored roundtrips!

Cons:
• Not really a minor but the last kilometer before reaching the hotel the road is unpaved so be prepared to some bumps and holes.

Pros:
• Enthusiastic hosts who are doing their very best to deliver a great and worry free stay to the guests.
• Great views from all the rooms.
• From spring 2015 a swimming pool will be available.

surrounding area

Ronda
Ronda has one of the most spectacular settings in all of Southern Spain. Due to this town’s unassailable location, it was one of the last standing Moorish bastions, which only fell in 1485, when it was conquered by the Christians. The town is split in two by a spectacular gorge, with the southern part being the classic Moorish pueblo blanco with cobblestone streets, small fences in front of the windows and whitewashed walls all around. The new town on the other side of the gorge contains the Plaza de Toros (bull ring), the cradle of bullfighting; it was built in 1785 and is one of Spain’s oldest. The bridge that connects the two parts of Ronda, the Puente Nuevo, spans the 100-metre-deep gorge and has become Ronda’s most famous feature, drawing in millions of visitors every year.
Apart from the Plaza de Toros, the Palacio Mondragón is another important sight; this is a palace decorated with original Moorish mosaics and plastering.
About 15 km outside Ronda you will find caves, the Cueva de la Pileta (near Benaoján), with prehistoric paintings.

Active
There are also many options for hearty walks in the surrounding Sierras.

Cultural
Ronda is a great base for a tour past the Pueblos Blancos (white villages), such as Zahara de la Sierra, which sits at the foot of the ruins of a castle, and which was recently proclaimed a national monument. Other splendid white villages are Grazalema, Setenil, Jimena de la Frontera, Gaucín. In these white villages you will be able to get a taste of Spanish country life as it has been for centuries.

Family
Close to Estepona (68 km; 1h 5min) you will find the safari park Selwo Aventura, with about 200 different animal species. Some animals can be seen from a 4x4 safari bus, or you can go on an adventurous walk over the park’s wire bridges (from the higher part of the park down to the bottom).

Nature
Tours by car past the Pueblos Blancos (white villages), on routes that take you through stunning scenery: mountains up to 1600m high, plateaus, valleys and gorges, rivers, waterfalls and reservoirs, forests and orchards.
You can also go for a walk or a hike in the surrounding nature reserves of Sierra de Grazalema, Los Alcornocales and Sierra de las Nieves.

Next to the Pueblos Blancos (White Villages) the following villages/towns in the area are definitely worth a visit:
Ardales (50km; 55min):
The Embalses de Guadalteba-Guadalhorce are known as Andalucía’s lake district. The embalses are 2 reservoirs, which are surrounded by stunning mountainous and wooded countryside. This is a popular recreation area, with picnic sites and plenty of places where you can go for a swim. And moreover, a great place for walks.
Nearby (in the direction of Alóra) you will also find the Garganta del Chorro, a breathtaking, narrow gorge carved out by the Río Guadalhorce. This gorge is famous for the spectacular path of concrete wire bridges clinging onto the rock face, but unfortunately the path has been closed because it is no longer entirely safe.

Costa del Sol (50km; 1h):
A day at the beach is also an option. The Costa del Sol, with all its beaches, stretches out at only a 1 hour drive from Ronda. The finest beaches are the ones at Marbella, including Babaloo Beach (Puerto Banus) and Victor’s Beach (Marbella).

Marbella (62km; 1h10min):
Marbella’s old town is definitely worth a visit. One of the highlights of your visit will be having a nice outdoor dinner on the Plaza de los Naranjos, the main square, lined with orange trees. After dinner you can stroll through Marbella’s narrow streets and past its many squares.

And you can, of course, head for one of these world famous cities for a day trip:
Seville (130km; 2h):
The capital of Andalucía is a compact city with a rich past. Most of its major sights are in or near the city centre on the Guadalquivir river’s left bank. And they also know how to party and have a good time in this city of flamenco and tapas.
As you wander through the old Jewish quarter, the Barrio Santa Cruz, through a maze of white streets and patios, you should not forget to take in the imposing cathedral, the Moorish bell tower, La Giralda, and the royal palace Real Alcázar.
You can unwind in the María Luisa park, where you can spend the hottest part of the day under orange trees and palm trees.
The museum Museo de Bellas Artes, one of Spain’s best museums of art, is a real must. And then there are its magnificent palaces and other sights, such as the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza (bull ring); Casa de Pilatos and the Torre del Oro.

Córdoba (170km; 2h40min):
Visit the Mezquita, Córdoba's huge mosque, which has seen various different developments throughout the years to become a fascinating blend of styles and religions. And you can also go for a stroll through the districts of San Lorenzo, Judería and San Basilio, where you will encounter the most beautiful Moorish patios. Other sights include the palace/fortress Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos with magnificent gardens and fountains; various museums, such as the Museo Arqueológico, Museo Taurino, Museo de Bellas Artes; a string of great squares, such as the Plaza de la Corredera, Plaza del Potro.

Granada (190km; 2h30min):
The Alhambra was the part of town where princes, nobility and court staff dwelled, on the hill right in the middle of Granada. The Alhambra is a huge complex, 720m in length and 220m wide. Clever use of space, light, water and decorative features are the Alhambra’s defining features.
On the hill opposite the Alhambra, the Albayzín quarter, is where Granada’s Moorish past is still most tangible. Stroll through its narrow streets, past villas with Moorish decoration and gardens, up to the Mirador de San Nicolás. This is where you will have the best views, of the roofs of Granada, with the Alhambra behind them, which makes for a stunning view, especially at sunset!
