Montecorto, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
El Tejar is the highest house in the small village of Montecorto, a quarter of an hour from Ronda. From its lofty perch you have extraordinary panoramic views of the Grazalema mountains. The house, which has featured in several interior design magazines, is decorated in Andalusian/Moroccan style. Evoking the region's Moorish past. Base elements of whitewashed beams and terracotta floors have been stylishly combined with warm colour washes. <BR><BR>There are hundreds of books, CD players in all rooms and masses of paintings and framed prints. Bedrooms have the same colourful feel: linen is top of the range, mattresses too, and all are big on space. A charming housekeeper, Francisca, cleans and tidies every day and can prepare meals for guests, should they wish. And sculpted into the hillside is a gorgeous pool surrounded b... Read more

El Tejar is a delightfully quirky, rustic house located at the top of the village of Montecorto, with wonderful open views across to the mountains on the other side of the valley. I stayed there in late April and loved it. There are plenty of shady patios and terraces to relax on outside and a small pool, and each of...

My fiance and I stayed at El Tejar last December and thoroughly enjoyed our getaway. The house is comfortable, spacious and eclectically decorated with an abundance of exciting books to read. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the sitting room, cozied up next to the fire, while enjoying the beautiful mountain views. We also ventured out on a few local hikes....

About the neighborhood
Montecorto is a quiet and friendly village situated 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 in the Park). There are a number of bars and restaurants including one in the pine forest where you can have al fresco meals. There's a bakery, four small grocery stores - two of them provide baskets so you can pick things off the shelf, a useful thing for non-Spanish speakers - as well as a bank and chemists. A lot of the fruit and vegetables for sale in the village come from the fertile terraces beneath the village. <BR><BR>Montecorto is one of the 'pueblos blancos', a cluster of white hill villages which stretch from Arcos in the west to... more
