This very cosy and homely place would perfectly fit a bigger family, providing comfort and privacy for everybody. The property is neat and tidy with stylish interior design. All the necessary facilities are included and extensive collection of guidebooks and maps makes it easy to plan your trips. The location is very special thanks to great mountain views and a calming sound of the nearby spring. It is a truly unique place to spend quiet, relaxing holidays in stunning natural surroundings and with numerous tourist attractions within a stone's throw. We'll definitely recommend it to our friends!

The place is decorated with excellent taste and great attention to detail. The things I particularly liked were the bathtub built into the rock, the kitchen mosaic and the collection of colourful rugs. However, the absolute best of Dar Hajra is the splendid view over the mountains which you can enjoy from anywhere in the house. I can just imagine how great it would be to stay longer on the terrace and use the pool in the warmer months. No doubt we will be back to check it out. Needless to say, the house is clean and well equipped – you'll find all you need for comfortable and relaxing holidays. The wide selection of books about the region was really useful and helped a lot to plan our trips. There are plenty of great tourist attractions to visit within a short distance, but at the end of the day we truly enjoyed spending the quiet evenings by the fireplace. Montecorto is a charming, authentic village surrounded by nature. On the lazy days we would simply go for a walk around finishing it with a coffee or a glass of wine at the small bar close to the church. Our holidays couldn't have been better.

The casita is charming and (as we stayed in the winter) no expense or facility was spared to ensure we were warm and comfortable. The area is a total relaxing pleasure so away from it all, yet close to all the amenities of Ronda. An excellent base to discover the wonderful villages and sites in the area, Zahara with its amazing view of the lake, Grazalema, Acinipo (roman ruins) , Senetil de la Bodegas (thanks for the recommendation Miki!) all within easy reach.
