Casa monte clara is just lovley, everything you nead is there for you, if you love rustic rural this is the place for you. there is a neighbour close by but only seemed to appear at w.ends which was quite nice as it is very quite the rest of the time except for the odd farmer and his tractor and the the odd car every now and then. The pool isnt to big but enough to splash around in and keep cool floating on a lilo ect. the views are to die for as the sun comes up & goes down you see somthing differant every time you look , you dont get tired of the view . you do nead a car as the walk to the local village is a bit steep but saying that the local goat hurder does it and he looks 80 if a day so maybe we were just lazy !

we didnt realy use any resturants as we loved to eat outside the villa using the bbq .the village has all the bits you nead the butchers was nice and the supermacado had all the bits you neaded , the chemist was very good when i was'nt to well and the doctors was very helpfull you will nead E111 and take a photocopy off it as it will be required.

The owner Lisa was on the end of a phone if we required any help she sounded lovley but we just passed in the wind sadley didnt get a chance to meet. this is a realy lovley place to stay and we will be going back.

i would recommend this to couples mostley its romantic quite and away from it all but only a car drive away to any bars ect you may want

We booked the villa for a surprise birthday present after having problems travelling to the villa Lisa and Julian couldn't have been more helpful arranging their daughter to take us to malaga so we could continue our holiday. The villa is stunning, everything a family would need and had everything you need for a holiday the pool was beautiful with plenty of room for 5 with room for more and was kept really clean and maintained to a high standard by Julian who came to clean and was very friendly and helpful. The views from the villa were breathtaking situated in a perfect area for any type of holiday would definitely come back again. Couldn't meet a nicer couple and we will be highly recommending to our family and friends. Thank you so much Julian and Lisa for making our holiday so special.

Breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

Casa Monte Clara had two bedrooms and a large open plan area with padded bench seating around a coffee table and a dining table and chairs to seat 6. There is also a dedicated kitchen area with plaster storage spaces formed in the waist height walls, separating the area from the rest of the room andalso storage spaces in the main house wall. This theme also runs through into the bedrooms with plastered shelving areas and warobe space with covering curtains. There is a shower room with a blue spanish basin and tiled surround. Flooring throughout is tiled. There is a microwave, hob and oven. Outside is a long covered area with a patio table and 6 chairs which lead on to a further seating area and outside washing machine. Steps lead down to the small but very useful pool which has the bonus of lighting for night time swimming. There are several loungers and some sun chairs to offer seating to see the most glorious views which are a perk of the stay There are neighbours but these only seem to appear at weekends and seem quiet. This is a very rustic holiday and the rural aspect is very peaceful. Our only problem was keeping very tiny red ants at bay as, at times, they seemed to like us, even though we were very careful not to leave food around! Riogordo nearby is a friendly town with all amenties. We didn't meet Lisa but Julian was a very helpful owner who was always willing to put himself out if needed. The interior was cool in the heat and the shutters on every window were most welcome.

Lovely Honeymoon get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Well, after a very stressful few months before the wedding, I and my wife came on a great honeymoon to this beautiful little Casa, near a small but pretty little village/town called Riogordo. Perfect for a well needed time to relax!! (we even got a bottle of Cava thrown in!) The views were amazing, the swimming pool was perfect for cooling down during the very hot days, and as long as you have good transport, it's not too far from shops and good days out. Malaga is also not too far away, and full of such character, beaches and good days out. For a whole week in a place not too far off the beaten track, we thought that it was very well priced and just lovely! Would recommend to family and friends. It was very clean and well kept, the swimming pool was also well looked after and clean.

Thank you Lisa for providing us with such a lovely start to our married life together!

Delightfully relaxing, stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and my brother and his fiance stayed at this lovely villa, the last week of May. The owners, Lisa & Julian were really helpful before and during our stay. The pictures of the villa and the surrounding are faithful to the place itself which was perfect for the chilled out week we all needed. Although basic the property has all the items you need to make your stay comfortable. The village of Riogordo has several friendly and very cheap shops and butchers to make great use of the barbecue. We drove up from Gibraltar and took a day trip to Nerja, taking in the stunning countryside.

If you visit Colmenar, pop and have a drink at El Campesino, run by a really friendly dutch lady called Anita. Watch the gentle Spanish world go by and enjoy her cheap and tasty tapas.

A lovely stay in a lovely villa which emulates its surroundings completely.
