Properties on the Road to Ronda

The road to Ronda is a fantastic location for a Marbella residence, with an abundance of property types to choose from all in great locations, close to amenities and with good connections to other cities in Andalusia and the coast.

The Ronda road is one of the main roads leading from the Costa del Sol going North, beginning on the coast with the typical Spanish town of San Pedro de Alcántara (recently described in our blog “San Pedro de Alcántara and its annual October Feria”).

Ronda is a city in the Sierra De las Nieves National Park, province of Malaga and has remains of prehistoric settlements dating back to the Neolithic Age. A mixture of cultures from early Celts, to Phoenicians, Romans and Muslims, with a large mix of architectural heritage and many beautiful sites to see. Typically, an afternoon out or day trip from Marbella, located approx. 60kms away.

Today the bottom on the Ronda Road offers a well-established large community of residential complexes, mostly offering wonderful open views over the various famous golf courses and down to the sea, in a peaceful setting with natural surroundings. A large international community of residents using their properties either on a permanent or holiday basis. This is also a sough after area for investors as holiday rentals can be very fruitful.
