La Retarta is situated in the White Village of Jubrique, which is in the Genal Valley, South West of Ronda and North of Estepona in Andalucia, Southern Spain.

La Retarta is a luxury Cortijo with very flexible accommodation, that can suit both small or large groups and families. Set on the edge of the stunning white village of Jubrique in the Lower Genal Valley, one can enjoy the best of both worlds (Village Life and Campo).
The south western side of the property enjoys tranquil views of the surrounding countryside. The propertie's 3 acre gardens and olive/citrus groves are pleasant to walk through or just to sit in the shade. On the other side of the Cortijo, the street entrance opens to all the amenities of village life with it's shops, bars, restaurants and friendly locals. Retarta is quite a unique experience, providing an insight into both Country and Village life from one location, in the heart of Rural Spain.

Jubrique is an ideal location to tour the local countryside. With its wildlife and flora, walking trails, history and culture, Jubrique is very interesting place. It is also well worth visiting the neighboring Villages. Just 45 minutes in opposite directions, you can visit the Costa del Sol at Estepona or for a completely different experience, visit the historic and famous City of Ronda.

  • Our 2 night stay in La Retarta was great. Jubrique is a lovely little white village and the house offers a wonderful view over the valley and surrounding mountains. A fabulous place to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine while the kids jump around in the pool.
    Colm was a great host responding to my queries promptly. His house keeper, Ingrid, was amazing! She returned my friends kindle,driving out of her way to drop it at my friends house.
    I would certainly recommend a stay at this villa. My only request is that tea towels are provided in the kitchen

    Many thanks for your kind comments, and for leaving the house clean and tidy, always appreciated. Apologies over the tea towels, an oversight, they should have been supplied with the bed linen and towels as nomal.
    Regards,
    Colm

  • The house was ideal for our purposes - an extended family gathering. We loved the house, the garden and the village - people were friendly and the housekeeper made us feel very welcome. We loved the fact that one side of the house opened out onto a village street (with a vibrant local bar) while the other provided a much more rural aspect, looking down to the valley of the Genal and up towards the mountains all around. The swimming pool was a major asset.

  • AMAZING!!
    We had the pleasure of staying in Colm's beautiful villa in August. As a 'grown-up' family, space was a priority and we were not disappointed to find such a large and traditional interior and outdoor area. The winding mountain journey to Jubrique was breath taking and seemed never ending then tucked away in the middle of it all as a tiny white speck on the horizon our little village destination. Jubrique is one of three villages separated by rolling mountains and a 45min drive. The views were stunning and made us feel like we were a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Mountain walks and natural lakes for swimming were all part of the package and easily accessed. Relaxing by the pool, sampling the delicious spanish produce, enjoying the views, and the alfresco dining all made it very difficult indeed to leave the comfort of Cortijo Retarta. Other than a trip to Ronda, (a must), and pottering up and down the maze of white buildings and narrow streets talking to the oh-so-friendly locals, there really wasn't much more we wanted from our 10 day trip...
    We would all go back in a heart beat.
    Thank you so much to Colm who was very helpful answering all our many questions before our trip and also to James and Ingrid - who were on tap to provide essential Spanish tips and knowledge of Jubrique and to Rory for supplying us with fresh produce from the garden and interesting stories and history of the area.
    We hope to see you again!!

About
I'm involved with Rural Accommodation is the Genal Valley, Serrinia de Ronda, Malaga, Spain since 2002, and I only came for a holiday! The Genal Valley is dotted with 17 Traditional White Villages (and one smurf blue), and has a unique unspoilt countryside. The micro-climate makes for mild winter and lower temperatures than other places in Spain in Summer. Ideal for walking, mountain biking, painting holidays, and energetically doing nothing at all. More info: Come on over, you won't be disappointed.
