24th December, Christmas Eve

Arrival at the time of your choice but before 1800

Detailed driving directions will be provided at the time of reservation and valet parking if necessary once you get here. If you need collection from the airport or bus or train stations in Ronda, we can arrange that.

Sip a mug of mulled wine and munch a home-made mince pie straight from the oven while settling in to your super comfortable room.

Depending upon your time of arrival, you might have a few hours to spare before The Christmas Eve Meal. So what to do?

– Take a sauna and relax your bones

– Settle down in front of the roaring chestnut fire and read a book

Hike to the next village to stretch your legs and make lots of room for the delights to come.

But, whatever you choose to do, be sure to be back in time to put on your party dress to enjoy our date with The Chef who will be serving an extraordinary selection of very fine cuisines. Our locally famous guest chefs will present an extravaganza of small dishes – tapas, mezze , call this delightful Mediterranean way of eating what you will – but expect a medley of wonderful tastes and flavours to suit all tastes.

John will be pouring the wine and Di will be making sure you don’t miss out on any dish. 

After the meal we can watch a movie, read a book from our extensive library, go for a settling stroll (the bars will all be closed as its family night) , join in a game of Articulate or Onze or Risk or Pictionary …… 

 25th December, Christmas Day

Christmas Day will begin with a Champagne Cocktail and Eggs Benedict breakfast (plus all our usual sumptuous choices) served at the hour of your choice but usually after 9 am and before 11 am. 

– Spend the morning walking the beautiful Alto Genal valley. We have routes from thirty minutes or three hours. Just down the lane or to another village and back.

– Or choose from our wide selection of games – Scrabble or Rummikub, cards or chess.
– Or read Di’s highly acclaimed book
– Or watch a movie from our DVD collection

Christmas Day as always will feature our famous barbequed turkey with tasty ecologically grown accompaniments, lots of excellent local Ronda wine, and a selection of divine desserts. This festive repast is served family style in the early evening. Exquisite food from Di´s award-winning international kitchen.

In the evening we can either have our Christmas quiz, play a group game, scatter to the far corners of the building to digest our delicious fare or … the choices are endless.late

26th December, Boxing Day 

After breakfast, we have a date with a luxurious minibus to take us to Ronda for an extraordinary gastronomic experience!

We are having lunch at the only totally ecological vineyard in Ronda – Joaquin Fernandez. We will tour the vineyard, learn how the wine is made, and then enjoy a tasting.  By then it will be time to sit down to a three-course meal of Spanish home cooking prepared especially for us.

John and I have visited this vineyard many times and its romance never pales. The roots of the vines reach back to distant times when the Phoenicians brought the first plants to Spain. Wandering amongst the vines is timeless, nothing has changed especially at this winery that does everything naturally without chemicals, the air is pure, the earth undamaged. It has the most wonderful atmosphere.

After lunch, we will be transported back home for a well-earned siesta.

In the evening, we will be offering Jansson´s Temptation – a very tasty Swedish Christmas dish. (Di is proud of her Swedish heritage and likes to brag about it!). And of course a buffet of cold turkey, salads, etc and lovely Ronda brews.

27th December
After a delicious breakfast, time to say goodbye. But if you would like to linger a little longer in the peaceful mountains, you can reserve more nights.
