A peacefully private villa, in its own spacious garden, this charmingly rustic cottage shares the Finca la Alameda estate with two other houses, and enjoys spectacular views over the Serrania de Graza.

Well-kept lawns and graceful trees surround this cheerful family villa, forming a natural cushion of privacy and framing an inviting eight metre swimming pool. At one end of this, a lovely poolside pergola provides a shady space for long and leisurely al fresco lunches. At the other end is the villa itself, raised a few steps above the garden and opening on to a second dining or sun-downer terrace. Simply furnished, with an open-plan sitting/dining room, and three en suite bedrooms, El Laurel is certainly large enough to comfortably accommodate a family, yet its intimate and informal atmosphere makes it equally attractive as a hideaway just for two. It shares three acre grounds with the smaller villa La Rondita and large Finca la Alameda house. Booked together with one (or both) of these, it becomes a fine choice for two families or a group of friends holidaying together, and cook service could be the icing on the cake. Rural but not remote, the villa is just 5km from Ronda.

One of oldest towns in Spain, Ronda is the largest of the pueblos blancos, the whitewashed villages that cling to hillsides in Andalucia’s Cádiz and Grazalema mountain ranges. The region was defined by the clash between Muslims and Christians, and that legacy is intensely felt on a Ronda holiday. Explore the blinding-white towns, scenic olive groves, and craggy limestone peaks, all within a relaxed drive from your Ronda-area villa.

You want to sail. We want to keep you safe. So, before we go, we need to chart a course for health and safety. After all, the health and safety of our guests, crew and communities we visit have always been our number one priority. That's why we've engaged leading public health experts to make sure cruising is leading in holiday safety on water or land. All to get you back to sailing safely, so you can Feel Free.

With a science backed plan and expert guidance, we've developed our comprehensive and multi-layered Sail Safe health and safety protocols that span the entire cruise journey. We will continue to constantly evaluate these protocols as science, technology and our knowledge of the virus evolve and will provide guests with all relevant information, including any changes to protocols prior to setting sail. These protocols focus on three key pillars:



We have developed a comprehensive and multi-layered set of health and safety protocols that span the entire cruise journey, guided by the expert advice from our Healthy Sail Panel. We will continuously refine and improve these protocols as science, technology and our knowledge of the virus improve and will provide guests with all relevant information or any changes to protocols prior to setting sail.
Pre-Cruise and Onboard Protocols

Mandatory Vaccination Requirement for all Adults & Crew
Mandatory Vaccinations Against Covid-19 on Initial Voyages

All guests and crew must be fully vaccinated, at least 2 weeks prior to departure, in order to board. Guest vaccination requirements are currently for all sailings embarking through October 31, 2021- we will follow the science to make determinations on requirements for all other future sailings.
Pre-Embarkation Health & Safety Preventative Measures
Universal testing
Pre-Embarkation Protocols

All guests will be required to take a COVID-19 antigen test, administered and paid for by the cruise line, prior to boarding and receive a negative result. Guests are also responsible for complying with all local health and safety requirements which may include additional testing.

We’ve designed an enhanced, staggered embarkation process and new check-in system to streamline check in for guests by allowing documents to be signed electronically.

Face coverings are currently required for guests whilst indoors except for in their own accommodations and whilst eating and drinking in restaurants, bars and lounges or outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.

We will initially control the guest capacity onboard each ship to provide even more space for responsible physical distancing. We have also increased spacing in dining and entertainment venues and other onboard spaces.

Contactless food and beverage service will be provided across all ships with service staff stationed ship-wide, including all restaurants and lounges.

All guests will be required to engage in frequent handwashing and hand sanitizer will be prominently placed and easily accessible throughout the ship.
