Don Quixote in Ronda

Don Quixote in Ronda

 Don Quixote in Ronda Don quixote IN RONDA. In 1999, director PETER YATES, cast and crew came to Hotel EnFrente Arte in Ronda (Andalusia) for the shooting of the TV-serie DON QUIXOTE (Don Quijote), after MIGUEL DE CERVANTES’ novel DON QUIJOTE, written in 1605 and probably Spain’s most important literatural highlight. It is also one of the world’s most translated novels. The amazing cast of this production, Bob Hoskins, John Litgow, Isabella Rossellini, Vanessa Williams and many other, stayed in our hotel and guaranteed legendary parties in the hotel in the nighttime after long days shooting in the beautiful Ronda decor. The city of Ronda is constantly present in the serie […]

The Bossa Seedling boat

The Bossa Seedling boat

The Bossafarm seedling boat At the Bossafarm, our outdoor land in Estepona where we grow 100% organic fruit and vegetables and we created the Bossaboat. This boat was about to be destroyed and we gave it a final destination as a seedling garden for all our plants and trees. We opened up one side in the flank of the boat and now our sprouts get all the necessary sun but are protected from the wind. We have surrounded the boat with up side down planters where we grow cherry tomatoes, mexican green tomatoes etc…One can conclude the Bossaboat has a complete new mission after being recycled and became a new […]

Spain with kids

Spain with kids

Traveling With Kids: An Andalusian Road Trip. In June of 2014 my family spent a month traveling through Spain and London. I’m highlighting our individual destinations, giving you tips on traveling with kids and sharing some of the best things we discovered.  We set off for Ronda and yet another beautiful drive through Andalusia. Ronda is smaller, and therefore easier to navigate than previous towns we’ve been to. We were able to check into our guesthouse, Hotel Enfrente Arte, early. If all of our hotel stays were hits, this one was a home run. Again, very reasonable, with a funky atmosphere we all loved. Our room was a 2-story suite, […]

World Harmony RUN

World Harmony RUN

Spain 14 March: Ronda – La Línea de la Concepción Happy Birthday Zoltan! The tallest member of our team turned 30 today. We are scared that if we keep feeding him he might not be able to fit into the car before we reach Morocco. We were sorry to say goodbye to the Enfrente de Arte Hotel particularly after the best breakfast we could possibly imagine. But as always we had to get a move on. This morning started with a TV interview at the Ronda Town Recreation Centre. We also met “The Road Runner Ladies of Ronda”, well that’s what we like to call them. It was great to […]

A brief stay in Ronda Now who wouldn’t want to visit a place like this?!You are looking up at Ronda’s famous Puente Nuevo – New Bridge. It’s hardly new given that building work commenced in 1751, but it must be compared with both the Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) constructed by the Arabs and the Puente Romano (Roman Bridge) which both predate it. All three bridges are quite spectacular in their own ways, but it’s the Puente Nuevo that gets most attention, overlooking as it does a vast canyon known as the Tajo.         Visitors to Andalusia rarely miss out on a stop in Ronda and it’s easy […]

Time Out Andalucia

Time Out Andalucia

Time Out Andalucia Owned and run by Belgian entrepreneur Filip Eyckmans, EnFrenteArte brings a new concept to the hotel industry. For millennia southern Spain has been perceived as a promised land. From Phoenician traders to Moorish invaders to today’s northern European occupiers of the Costa del Sol, this extraordinarily varied region has offered the lure of beaches and mountains, classic cities and cutesy villages, magnificent deserts, vast forests and fertile plains – and a balmy climate that is the envy of the rest of the continent. Time Out Andalucia presents the full picture of this country within a province, giving an insider’s view of its cultural and natural riches, but […]

Traveloscopy

Traveloscopy

Traveloscopy David Ellis TO ask whether the Andalusian town of Ronda in southern Spain is spectacular is somewhat akin to asking if Julia Roberts is a pretty woman. Famous 20th century Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke summed it up when he wrote: “I have sought everywhere the city of my dreams, and I have finally found it in Ronda. There is nothing that is more startling than this wild and mountainous city.” He wasn’t alone. Others to shout its praises have included Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemmingway and Hollywood legend Orson Welles. Both loved the town for its uniqueness – and for its bullfighting tradition, the local bullring being Spain’s […]

Tommy eats

Tommy eats

Tommy eats Hotels aren’t normally my thing, and I tend to stay in hotels that are functional, clean, well-situated in the town, and somewhat reasonably priced.  That is to say, I don’t put much thought into them, and I don’t usually remember much about them.  And I certainly don’t stay at B&Bs, mostly because I have no interest in eating breakfast with strangers (and they don’t want to eat breakfast with me…don’t catch me before 11 am because I’m more of a bear than usual). Checking into this small, funky, 14 room hotel, you’ll find yourself standing at the front of a car hood. The car, you see, is in […]
