“Gorgeous Villa with impressive views near to the lovel village of Arriate”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013
1
person found this review helpful

The hosts for this villa give a very warm welcome and make sure all your initial needs are met. We had requested a small food shop and our evening meal to be prepared making that first night after a long journey very relaxing and easy. It took around 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get to Malaga but it was a fairly easy main road drive all the way until the village when your host meets you to guide you through the village and to your villa.

The villa is very spacious and the garden was perfect for our little 2 year old to run around saftely. There was a stack of toys and cuttlery etc for little ones and we were even able to get a bed guard put up for our son saving on packing a travel bed.

The villa overlooks farmland and is in a really peaceful setting. Although you can walk to the nearest village of Arriate in about 10 minutes a car is probably still essential for food shops and getting around elsewhere. We went to an amazing restaurant next to Arriate train station I forget the name but the owner Frank is an amazing host and the meal was superb. He even took our little boy into the kitchen to fetch his evening bottle of milk.

I'd recommend this villa to any form of group, friends, young family would all enjoy their stay here.

Hola Angela, Many thanks for your review - we really appreciate your feedback and delighted that everyone enjoyed Casa Sońana. The restaurant next to the station in Arriate is called El Muelle - i'll tell Frank that you enjoyed it. It is a great addition to our little Pueblo Blanco. Glad that all the kids-stuff was welcomed at the Villa, I remember how much stuff you had to pack for little ones, so good to know that this helped. Thanks again for booking Villa Casa Sońana and hope we can welcome you all back again in the future. Until then, Saludos :) Jill.

“Two perfect weeks!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We traveled with our 2 year old son to Villa Casa Sonana in July. It was one of the best holidays we have ever had, the villa was stunning and location simply beautiful. The location was fantastic for travelling around a bit - we did lots of day trips to beaches with our son, and there were lots of toys in the villa to keep him happily entertained for the fortnight. It is so well set up for families, and we also sampled delights of the in house dining to give us a break from cooking for a couple of nights- the tapas was incredible!
Thank you Jill for a wonderful stay - we will definitely be back!

“AMAZING”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Spent a wonderful two weeks at Casa Sonana, what you see on the website is what you get, beautiful house with fab pool in a peaceful area just outside Arriate and very close to Ronda. The views from the house were breathtaking. The information on the house was very useful, top tips from owners. Food and drink was much cheaper than we were expecting esp as we had 4 teenagers with us. Lots of lovely local villages to explore, but for us in July/Aug it was too hot to do anything other than eat, sleep, sunbathe and swim. Can't recommend it more highly!

Hola Serena. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review - and we are delighted that everyone loved Casa Sońana. You are right that food/drink is still much cheaper in this area, especially Arriate, we often find that we can have a super night-out with lots of food and drink still for under 20 euros each - you dont get that in many places now ! We would love to welcome you all back again and please just contact me personally when you wish to do this. Regards to everyone. Saludos :) Jill.

“Awesome villa”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed with my family for a week in August. Fantastic villa with great luxury interiors, pools, bbq etc, and amazing rural location overlooking hills and olive groves. Remote enough but still close to a traditional Spanish town for all essentials plus only 20 mins from centre of ronda. Golf courses and the coast also within striking distance. Great service from owners pre, during and post hols plus a number of great touches such as doing shopping for you so ready when you get there, in villa wine cellar, kids toys etc, and suggestions for things to do locally, lift this above similar rentals. Can recommend having the in villa dining option via owners friend, was great, plus day trips to surrounding hill towns. You will pay appropriately for this villa but the experience means it is good value. Will hopefully be back.

Hola Alex, thanks for your comments, delighted that everyone loved Villa Casa Sońana and the surrounding area. It really is a very magical part of the world. Pleased that you also enjoyed our 'additional services'. As the top end hotel/hospitality is my full time profession, then many of these come naturally to me, and we continually try to build on these also, so pleased you enjoyed them. Thanks to you all for booking Casa Sońana, it would be great to welcome you back again, and you know just contact me personally when you wish to do this. Until then, as always, Saludos :) Jill.

“Great house in a great location perfect for a family reunion.”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at Villa Casa Sonana in early June. The house was excellent - very well appointed and in a beautiful location. The house was spacious, the beds comfortable and the pool excellent. It was also very convenient for Ronda and other "white towns". Don't miss the Cueva de la Pileta, they were one of the highlights of our stay (along with the Alhambra in Grenada).
