Where to start with The Lodge, Ronda? It is a truly beautiful place: stunning views, a picture-perfect house, garden and pool, utter tranquillity, and discreet but attentive staff. As a place to stay with friends, it’s incomparable; tailor-made for wonderful alfresco lunches, or dinners on the terraza, that continue long into the warm, balmy Andalucian night, under a canopy of stars. And for a wedding, I can only imagine just how magical it would make the day. For those less inclined to lounge by the pool, where the calm is broken only by birdsong, there are spectacular walks and bike-rides to go on. All in all, it's just about as close to paradise as you can get. But don’t take my word for it – go and experience it for yourself!
