OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA “When we came to live in the valley in 1999, it was a bare plot of land. But we immediately recognized its potential and fell in love with the peaceful tranquility that the valley breathes. Over the years and step by step, and with maximum reuse of materials , we have tried to develop the place to be a perfect holiday spot for everyone who looks for a comfortable holiday in a quiet rural setting.”

Francisco was born and raised in Ronda. He knows the country very well and is a passionate lover of nature and organic farmer. Lies is Dutch and came from Amsterdam to live in Andalusia in 1995. Both their son Santiago was born in 1998. Francis and Lies try to live as self-sufficient as possible. Francis maintains and processes the gardens, while the Lies rents out the, for this purpose built holiday home. She will also do the odd jobs and is dedicated to art photography.
