Baked chestnut cream with crunchy sugar coating


While here, why not enjoy one of the fabulous desserts created by Chef Iván?  Highly recom-mended by this writer is the Burnt Chestnut Cream, oh so delicious, simple yet scrumptious, pic-tured above.  Chef Iván also normally has an array of special desserts on offer.

The Riscos of Júzcar


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.

Outdoor Seasonal Pool

Our exterior pool has a season from mid-June to early September.  Re-fresh yourself mid to late afternoon from the intense Andalusian sun. Ideal spot to watch the sun set.


We are located in the heart of the Ronda Mountains and we are surrounded by glorious nature.  From all sorts of birds to wild mushrooms to the hundreds of wild flowers that pop in the spring, we enjoy an abundance of seasonal nature in this valley.

Seasonal Tourism

This area has distinctive seasons, spring and autumn being the most spectacular for the colors and variety of the flowers including the very fragrant yellow chestnut flowers.  Autumn is a color explosion for the eyes to enjoy with the autumnal foliage of the chestnuts, 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.

White villages

The Genal Valley has a total of 15 white villages that one may visit and explore, all very traditional and small, surprisingly still not widely known in larger tourist circles; that point alone should be make this area quite attractive and desirable  to the discerning traveller.  Perfect for escapes from the crowded urban areas, wherever you reside.

Genal Valley - Chestnuts


The Serranía de Ronda is one a the few areas in Spain that cultivates edible chestnuts.  The chestnut tree has leaves that change color with the autumn chill giving us that fantastic autumnal color before the leaves finally drop. This high foliage color point normally occurs  in the first two weeks of November. The chestnut trees flower in May/June again providing color to the valley  of a bright yellow accompanied by a strong pungent fragrance for a few short weeks before sprouting their chestnut fruit.
