General Information about the Hotel and Area
Outdoor pool (seasonal)
Our exterior pool has a season from mid-June to early September. Re-fresh yourself mid to late afternoon from the intense Andalusian sun.
While here, why not enjoy one of the fabulous desserts created by Chef Iván? Highly recommended bueno this writer is the Burnt Chestnut Cream, oh so delicious, simple yet surrumcious.
El Bandolero is fortunate to have such spectacular views one can enjoy from the bar terrace, your room terrace or walking in front of the hotel. The Bandolero faces el Jardón and el Romeral, two forested areas within the village limits.
Cooking classes with Chef Iván can be arranged prior to your arrival. Contact us by email for details on class synopsis and pricing. Cooking classes can be especially fun when organised for a group of friends or family.
We are located in the heart of the ronda Mountains are are surrounded by glorious nature. From all sorts of birds to wild mushrooms to the hundreds of wild flowers that pop in the pring, we enjoy an abundance of nature this this valley.
Dining al Fresco
Our dinig options include on the terrace, al fresco, or in our cozy bar. For busier times and groups, we offer our rustic large dining room.
Our room terrace on the second floor is a common area, one where you may enjoy the stellar views, make new friends, relax and listen to the birds. One might enjoy the hoots of the returning owl in the pine trees.
The area has distinctive seasons, spring and autumn being the most spectacular for the color and variety of the flowers including the very fragrant chestnut flowers. Autumn is a color explosion for the eyes to enjoy with the autumnal foliage, a not so common sight in Andalusia. In winter, we may even see some snow.
Birds and Wildlife
The birds and wild life one might spot is exciting and abundant. This area has the largest population of Griffon vultures in Europe so one may see a wave of vultures or just a couple swirling around in the sky. One may spot a snake eagle, nightingale, black bird, wood peaker, owls, partridges or a stork among the many. And foxes, boar, snakes, frogs, rabbits are other types of wildlife roaming the local countryside.
The Genal Valley has 14 other white villages to take a look at, all very traditional and small, surprisingly still not widely known in larger tourist circles. That point alone should be attractive to the discerning traveller.
The Serranía de Ronda is one a the few areas in Spain that grows chestnuts. The chestnut tree drops its leaves after the autumn chill giving us that fantastic autumnal color. The trees flower in May/June again providing a color of bright yellow and strong pungent fragrance for a few short weeks before they sprout their chestnut fruit.
