About the property

El Tejar is the highest house in the small village of Montecorto, just 15 minutes from Ronda, with amazing panoramic views of the Grazalema mountains. This exceptionally romantic house (featured in several interior design magazine) is decorated in Andalusian/Moroccan style. Whitewashed beams and terracotta floors have been stylishly combined with warm colour washes. There are hundreds of books, CD players in all rooms, a collection of beautiful paintings and prints as well as wifi internet (with desktop iMac). The 4 large bedrooms have the same bright/ethnic feel: linen is top range, mattresses too, and all are en suite. A charming housekeeper, Francisca, cleans and tidies every day (if you so wish) and can prepare typical Andalusian meals. Sculpted into the hillside is a circular pool surrounded by terraces shaded by olive, almond and citrus trees. El Tejar is an exceptional holiday home - this is not just an ordinary villa - and perfect for a relaxing, secluded and spoiling holiday.

Car: necessary

From Ronda take the A374 towards Sevilla/Jerez de la Frontera. After approx 18km turn right at signs for Montecorto. Go straight across at a mini roundabout and swing round to right and then to the left. Pass a bus stop and at the end of this road a large two storey building is in front of you: El Ayuntamiento (the town hall) and to your right, you’ll see the church.

Here turn right here and then immediately left at signs for 'Piscina', 'Nacimiento de Agua'. Go along a cobbled track through the pines and then at the end turn right into Calle Nacimiento. Continue all the way up this street, Calle Nacimiento (you will see water channels, first to the left of the road, then to the right) to house no 54. It appears to be last building in but in fact you pass just to the left of this building. Pass lots of potted plants and at the very last house, turn sharp right and follow a steep dirt track up through pines. The track bends to right - you pass another building to your left and then swing right past another on your right then drop down hill to the wooden gate of El Tejar.

The pretty village of Montecorto is at the edge of the Grazalema National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere reserve, which has some of the best hiking in Europe. (The owner of El Tejar has written a guide to the best walks). The fauna and flora of the Park are remarkable: more than a third of Spain's plant species grow here and ornithologists come from the world over because of the abundance of raptors and migrating birds.

Just a quarter of an hour away is the extraordinary Roman theatre of Acinipo, hewn out of solid rock, and the Pileta cave - with some of Europe's best rock painting - is just a short drive away.

Ronda, one of Spain's most spectacular towns, can be reached in fifteen minutes by car.

The village of Montecorto is one of the 'pueblos blancos', a cluster of white hill villages which stretch from Arcos in the west to Ronda in the east. These villages are amongst the prettiest in Spain.

And Sevilla, Jerez, Arcos, Cadiz and Granada can all be easily visited from Montecorto.

And waht makes it even more special is that a charming Spanish lady, Francisca, comes to tidy and make beds each morning. She can also prepare you delicious and authentic tapas-style food which she delivers to the house in time for your lunch or dinner, a service which is totally unique to El Tejar!
