El Tejar

A four bedroom farmhouse sleeping up to 8 guests with included maid service

El Tejar is the highest house in the small village of Montecorto, a quarter of an hour from Ronda, with panoramic views of the Grazalema mountains.

This exceptionally romantic house is decorated in an eyecatching mix of Andalucian and Moroccan styles. Whitewashed beams and terracotta floors are offset by warm colour washes. There are hundreds of books, beautiful paintings, CD players in all rooms along with fast internet with a new iMac and wifi.

The four bedrooms – two twins and two doubles – have the same bright and ethnic feel with crisp white linen and first class mattresses. All have their own bathroom.

Sculpted into the hillside is a circular pool surrounded by terraces shaded by olive, almond, palm and citrus trees and a beautiful top terrace for al fresco dining.

A charming housekeeper, Francisca, cleans and tidies for you every day. What’s so unique about El Tejar is that she can also prepare meals. These can take the form of ‘tapas’ or 3 course dinners which will be served to you at your candlelit dining table. This can make a relaxing change from self-catering, especially if you have something to celebrate.

What’s so special about El Tejar is that you’re at the edge of the village but when you sit on the terraces or by the pool no other houses are visible. You have the best of both worlds: easy access to village shops and bars yet an utterly secluded location.

We have the most comprehensive guest information of any rental property in the area which includes information about local bars and restaurants, what to visit along with detailed route notes of the area’s most beautiful walks as well house copies of my own walking guides.

The travel writer Alastair Sawday recently included El Tejar amongst his favourite places to stay in Spain and we’ve had features written about the house in several UK newspapers. El Tejar is also recommended by i-escape, the award-winning travel website.

El Tejar is a wholly exceptional holiday rental property – not just an ordinary villa – and perfect for a deeply relaxing holiday. Many guests return year after year.
