Foodies love it here, so do horse-riders walkers and birders - in the wilds with terrace views hard to leave – Ronda 25k


10 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


In a particularly beautiful part of the Sierra de Grazalema. one of Spain’s finest natural parks, the Tambor del Llano does it credit. The young brainchild of enthusiastic environmentalist Carmen, it’s a sustainably run farm, combining cork oak forest and grazing for native breeds, with an agricultural warehouse transformed into a modern, minimalist B&B/hotel at its heart. Vivacious Carmen’s also a fabulous cook and with her team produces memorable meals  – of course the food is home grown and local, and the wine organic. So, Slow foodies will love it here as will horse-riders walkers and birders – you wind along small roads then a dirt track to reach the farm so can set off directly into the wilds, though views from the front terrace are hard to leave. Indoors, all is simple, uncluttered and comfortable: polished concrete floors, whitewashed walls, functional style furniture and plenty of communal space. Bedrooms each have a private terrace area, very good beds and linen, and deluge showers in pristine white bathrooms. The feel is wonderfully isolated but Grazalema is close and Ronda 25k away.

What a gem this place is - laid back and comfortable in wonderful Spanish minimalist style. The location in the most glorious mountain setting down a long track is stunning. We enjoyed drinks on the terrace watching the sheep graze over the mountain pasture with the sounds of frogs croaking in the little river, then a simple well cooked three course dinner served by the friendly waiter, and some spectacular star gazing before bed. Ideal for exploring the area - Ronda half an hour away and the white villages an easy drive for a day out plus glorious walks and wonderful birds too.

This is a very special place - caring staff, 3 delightful dogs, (a highlight for us and our fellow guests!) and great stargazing. An early evening ride with Carmen allowed us to get a great perspective of the environment, along with renewed confidence on horses that were truly cared for. We hope to visit again in the future to experience more of Tambor de Llano and what it has to offer.
