Hacienda el Santiscal

The origin story of Hacienda El Santiscal is at least as impressive as the mansion itself. Over 500 years ago, during the glory days of Spain, there was a knight: Juan de Armario. The nearby town of Ronda was under siege and nobody seemed capable of beating the Moors. Juan took on the challenge and defeated the enemy. To thank him for his heroic deed, the king of Spain granted him a piece of land by the base of the Santiscal mountain range. That is where the hacienda was built. Life is a lot more peaceful in this southern part of Spain these days. The knights are gone forever and the hacienda is now a monument. It still breathes the atmosphere of the past, even after being converted to a magnificent holiday destination with all the modern comforts one could wish for. We definitely owe a lot to knight Juan. His heroic deed secured the kingdom at the time as well as the majestic feeling you get as a guest of the hacienda today.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
