The Ronda mountains wrapped Christina and Pom in its spell and they realised their dream: a blissful retreat encircled by olive groves, ten minutes out of town. Christina is the ‘spark’, a charming woman who has decorated the area’s first boutique hotel with cool, understated elegance. Pom is born to the role of host: a raconteur by nature and a connoisseur of wine. The conversion of their old mill has been accomplished with local expertise, smooth plastering and planked floors adding to the immaculate furnishings and the stylish feel – a change from the more usual beam and terracotta. Each lovely suite has an open fire for cosy winter stays; Indonesian beds, muslin drapes, lamps, chairs and tables add a touch of exotica. Bathrooms are generous. An honesty bar, books and a vast collection of CDs add to the relaxed and laid-back feel. The focus is poolwards; beyond, groves of olives and the changing colours of the mountains – a blissful backdrop to your sundowner. Feast on Mediterranean dishes prepared principally from their organic orchard, and matched by fabulous Andalucian wines.
