Villa Paticoja



500 m²



2550 € / PER NIGHT


Villa Paticoja sits on a private plot on the southern face of the Benahavís mountain range. With uninterrupted views stretching across mountains, forests, the Mediterranean Sea and even to the north coast of Africa on a clear day, and with a microclimate which guarantees the best weather in mainland Spain, this is one of the most coveted locations in the country. This charming vacation retreat has been lovingly restored, seamlessly blending original rustic features with innovative contemporary design, and successfully retaining its Andalusian soul.


Unspoiled and tranquil, the village of Benahavís has kept its traditional Andalusian character. With romantic narrow streets, historic squares and whitewashed Spanish houses, it’s the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Only a short drive away is the Golden Mile and the famous Puerto Banús marina, boasting exclusive bars, world-class restaurants and luxury designer boutiques just a stone’s throw away from the water’s edge.


Villa Paticoja has been tenderly brought back to life and faithfully restored. Master craftsmen, whose very hands repaired the cathedral in Málaga, carefully rebuilt some of the old finca walls which date back to when it was originally built over 250 years ago.

The ground floor comprises a contemporary living space, including a cosy sitting room with flame effect fireplace and an open-plan kitchen/diner. The fully equipped kitchen has a central island with incorporated breakfast bar and a 10-seater dining table. Floor to ceiling glass sliding doors open onto the garden and a covered outdoor chill-out area.


Modern design gives way to a rustic ambience in the ensuite bedroom on this floor, which is cocooned within beautiful stone walls recovered from the original building, blending harmoniously with the contemporary furnishings, floors and ceilings and picture windows. This bedroom has an adjoining lounge which could be used as an extra children's room.


The upper level houses the large master suite, with its elegant bathroom, and a private terrace with glass balustrade where you can gaze out at the stunning scenery. Two further generous ensuite bedrooms with mountain views complete the first floor.


The property also has two separate guest annexes, each with a bedroom and ensuite bathroom and lashings more of that luxurious rural cosiness.


Outside, the infinity pool, covered outdoor living and dining spaces and manicured gardens add the finishing touches to this fabulous home, although they cannot compete with the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape of ancient pine woodland, mountains and sea.


High above the twinkling lights of Marbella, this luxury home available to rent in Benahavís is a private and sophisticated retreat, a perfect blend of scale and comfort in complete harmony with the ever-changing surrounding scenery. And for the foodies among you, Villa Paticoja is surrounded by some of the most prestigious restaurants on the Costa del Sol.

The venue was breathtaking !

We have spent 3 wonderful days in Ronda Mountain Resorts. The food and the service were perfect. Thank you to Martin, Ana, Juan and Luis who have been adorable. We are already missing Unico the horse.

Ronda Mountain Resort is a Phenomenal experience

Phenomenal experience – the house, pool and view are better than pictures even indicate. The hospitality was fabulous. Very well built A+ accommodations. The People were delightful along with their 2 friendly dogs added to the welcome ambience. We had some meals prepared that were 4 star!

Lovely little touches and exclusive location

Fantastic hosts and beautiful villa Bara. Nothing was too much trouble when asked for, extra blankets when guest where a little bit chilly in the guest house (went beginning of April). Lovely little touches supplying toiletries in all the bathrooms; shower gel, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner. The villa is an exclusive and private location and surrounded by other large villas. However, it is only a 15 minute walk to the Marina. Would definitely return.

Outstanding, exceptional, brilliant and wonderful

Villa Bara was an outstanding place and had exceptional facilities, with great live in staff who looked after us and the villa. They kept it spotlessly clean but you wouldn’t know they were there, always helpful when you needed them. The villa was exceptionally spacious both inside and out with great terraces both upstairs and downstairs. A perfect place for large groups of family and friends, a brilliant pool in lovely gardens with sun beds and towels for all. We would have no hesitation in staying again and look forward to returning in the future. Thanks to all those involved who made our trip a wonderful experience.

Golf Getaway

The team of Marbella Mountain Resorts has understood all of our needs. We were a group of executives who wanted to play golf and enjoy a week of holidays with all kinds of 5 star services.

Personal service

It has been one of the best decisions we have ever taken. It was the first time we rented a Villa to spend our family and we really did not know the Marbella Mountain Resorts company. I have to say that we are impressed with the professional and friendly service we have received from all the team. It has been like being in a 5 star hotel but exclusively!

Luxury Villa with breathtaking views

Villa Mirador is an exclusive property with panoramic views of the sea and Marbella. The employees of the house are super attentive and grateful although they do not speak much English, we understand each other. Alfonso and Carmen have been able to anticipate all our needs by organizing every detail of our vacations months before arrival.

Lodge Retreat Marbella

We have spent a wonderful family vacation in Villa Zagala. The Villa is like a country lodge retreat surrounded by nature and good energy. The sunset is just spectacular. Huge pool where to swim and spend the whole day relaxing at the chill out.

I never thought this place was going to surprise me the way it did, a beautiful setting and facilities to match any 5-star hotel.

A truly unique experience

This is a very special place. A very peaceful and luxurious property. We had the opportunity to stay one night in Serrano Cottage and one night in the main house. The grounds and facilities are second to none. Luis knows what the word hospitality is all about. Anna is wonderful, she will assist with anything you need. The property is close to Ronda so one can enjoy the history of the town but have a place to retreat to to unwind and relax. The pool and jacuzzi are a wonderful amenity to enjoy while relaxing and decompressing. This is a MUST stay should you be planning a trip to Spain. We will definitely return.

Most beautiful mountain location, ten minutes from Ronda

We fell immediately in love with this place, difficult to find but with the foto description they sent us, it was a lot easier. Completely away from the crowded tourist spots it is a place to relax and enjoy the sunset above Ronda during dinner. Luis, the owner, makes you feel comfortable as soon as you arrive. With only six rooms you can use the villa as if it is your own. They are just new, so it’s still a good time to go, I guess booking will be more difficult when popularity grows. Great pool too! Organic food, home made from local farmers.

Don’t Miss it..!

If you’re travelling to this part of Spain don’t miss the magical town of Ronda.
It’s worth the journey.
Spectacular views of the old town, nestled on top of the cliffs, are only part of its attraction.
Make sure to leave the busy main streets and explore the back alleys – cafés aplenty and the local musicians play on weekends.
It’s an incredible place and well worth the effort to get there on winding mountainous roads.
Make sure to stop at the ‘Look Outs’ on the way & bring your camera.

Unforeseen Delight

My husband and I ended up at the Resort after making an unexpectedly extended trip to Ronda on our honeymoon. It was a highlight of our trip! Luis was charming, personable and so attentive. Anna’s cuisine was spectacular. We loved our stay and could not believe our luck to find this romantic, charming accommodation. Thank you for making our once in a lifetime trip a t amazing memory.

They made our wedding unforgettable

We returned to Ronda Mountain Resort this May after we’d decided to host our festival-style wedding there. We had our closest friends stay with us on site – and everyone was blown away by every aspect of the villa. It has one of the most astounding views you’ll ever get at a villa – the sun sets every evening in-between the mountains and over the old town of Ronda, and you can enjoy it from the comfort of the hot tub.

We looked at many villas in the area when we were trying to find a venue and this one stood out as it wasn’t your usual dusty and dated Spanish villa. The interiors are all recently refurbed and tastefully done out with some beautiful bits of furniture. The housekeepers Juan and Anna, who live in a small cottage on site, are always there to help, tidy, light the fire, inflate giant swans for the pool and cook (if required) – but they do so very subtley and insconspicuously.

Secluded luxury in the Ronda countryside

We have just returned from a week at the resort – a party of 11 family and friends.

It has been one of the best properties we have ever rented (this is number 7). The location is spectacular, 15 mins from Ronda, in the middle of stunning countryside. It is very remote, and the roads into Ronda are small and winding, but to me the seclusion was part of the attraction of this particular property.

The villa itself is beautiful – well decorated and maintained, very comfortable living areas, very well equipped kitchens and bathrooms, comfortable beds, a good audio system to stream music around the house, and plenty of spaces such as the library to relax out of the heat in peace and quiet. The view from the terrace from sunrise to sunset towards Ronda over the olive groves and vineyards is just breathtaking.

Many rental properties never manage somehow to feel anything like home – this one most definitely did. It is not only somewhere I would recommend to groups who wish to relax in comfort in a beautiful property, but somewhere that I very much hope to return to again in the future.

I have been visiting this resort last week, the weather was warm, so we could enjoy swiming pool. The place is stunning surrounded by mountains. City is close enough to visit for shopping, but far enough to enjoy privacy or have a little party. 🙂

Amazing on every level – live like a millionaire!

How can I describe how amazing this place is ! Our daughter held her wedding here and we stayed for a week. Everything is incredible from the hospitality of Louis and the team to the standard of accommodation to the sunsets and vistas that are to die for. The house is stunning the location down a winding track that’s not too bad is isolated but not lonely – you can easily visit Ronda which is a lovely city. Rooms glamorous and luxurious space to get away from everyone if you need to but ultimately the perfect location for a wedding with a week of sumptuous blue skies and peace and quiet before and after. I’d stay again in a heartbeat!

Ronda: Wonderful Experience not to be missed if visiting Costa del Sol

You must visit this Spanish town in the mountains. It is a historical walled city purched at the top of a beautiful mountain range with wonderful views an vistas. It has an amazing view from the bridge entering the city – I will not try to explain but leave you to view as a surprise – not to be missed. It is also a bustling city with streets and streets of shopping and eating areas and is famous for its shoe shops…. Husbands Beware!!!

Dream place for a wedding

We hired this resort for a family wedding in September 2017 and cannot say enough praiseworthy things about the whole experience. This is a luxurious villa that gave all our guests (about 120 on the day of the wedding) a taste of the dream life and an introduction to beautiful Andulucia. The magical setting of the mountain resort helped the families of the bride and groom get to know each other more intimately over the days leading up to the wedding.

The owner and staff treated everyone with the utmost respect and dignity. We are all left with beautiful memories of the wedding and the place itself. The other reviewers have provided more specific details, all of which I agree with, but all in all this was a perfect place for a wedding and whetted an appetite for seeing more of Spain.

“Rasero Retreat” is outstanding

The Ronda home “Rasero Retreat” is an outstanding home and overall experience. We have stayed in many luxury homes around the world, and this estate home is architecturally stunning, tastefully furnished and very comfortable for a large family holiday. The owners did a wonderful job conceiving and building a home that leverages the beauty of the countryside. Ana and Juan – the staff – are gracious and accommodating, making us feel welcome and well looked after throughout our week. The morning breakfast setup is perfect. The daily housekeeping and grounds maintenance made it completely carefree. We would highly recommend the home to others.

Just amazing!

Our Holiday in Villa Palo Alto was just amazing. The advanced planning and organization was very well done. We had no reservations and could look forward to the holiday. Luxury Retreats and the villa manager welcomed us very nicely. The villa is absolutely stunning, also the people around. The activities like Caminito our personal trainer, yoga teacher or massage were highlights.
