The apartment is small, but comfortable and very well equipped. It was a bit chilly at times (it IS January), but a wood-pellet burning stove heats things up and is rather pleasant. Hostess Yvonne was very helpful and welcoming. Finding a place to eat in Arriate in January was a real challenge. The two most promising places were closed, so we ended up picking up bread, cheese, and Iberian ham from the local baker and butcher. With a bottle of wine, it was very nice.
Ronda is only a short drive away. The ruins of a Roman town are a half-hour drive in the other direction.
Miki and Mares are excellent hosts and the place lived up to all our expectations - and more! We had a great time staying to enjoy the space and in situ scenery. (Horses and olive trees just out the window and Roman ruins on the horizon!) We also took advantage of some walks in the area from twenty minutes to a few hours. You really need a car to get here and it allows some more options for trips in the region. Beautiful.
