                                                                                              Casa Santa Maria is a spacious house right at the top of the village with wonderful views whether on the roof terraced or thorough the doors of the living room. It felt lovely and homely with everything we needed. We travelled with hand luggage only so I left my hair dryer behind only to find one in the house. The BBQ area was nice and shaded for lunch out of the heat of the sun and we enjoyed several evenings on the roof terrace watching the vultures and eagles in the day or lying on sun beds with a bottle of wine watching shooting stars at night. The shops and bars are within easy walking distance. The bars in the village plaza stay open late and serve inexpensive tapas and sangria in a relaxed atmosphere by the fountain. The people in the village are friendly and it is lovely to experience the real Spanish life. No hotel could provide the same level of comfort or experience. I just wish we could've study end longer. Thank you Monica and John - We'll be back! Rebecca and Tom

                                                                                              Just returned from a wonderful holiday at La Casita, Montecorto. Fantastic area for walking especially the Mr Henderson's railway and Cat's cave walks. The local villages are stunningly beautiful, none less than the incredibly friendly Montecorto itself. Without a doubt though the true star of the holiday was La Casita itself. Leonard Cohen once wrote of "the wine you've always wanted to drink, at the table you've always wanted to drink it at, at the price you've always wanted to pay for it..." He describes the La Casita experience perfectly! The cottage is completely charming, beautifully and imaginatively decorated with much attention to detail. The views from the terrace are stunning and Bobby Dylan and Neil Young never sounded better than up there beneath the waxing moon and stars. l

Los Arcos is a fabulous house - beautifully designed, well-equipped and a pool with the most gorgeous view of the mountains behind. We spent 10 glorious days in Montejaque - a wonderful little village which certainly comes to life during the August Feira - there always seemed to be something going on in the square whenever we walked up the hill! We couldn't have asked more of our holiday - the village is perfectly situated in order to visit Ronda and many of the stunning surrounding Pueblas Blancas. Normally, even though we love a place, we wouldn't necessarily return as there are so many other places in the world to visit, but in Montejaque, and Los Arcos we really found a place that will stay in our hearts forever, and we can't wait to go back. Thank you to Carolyn and Kevin across the road for making us feel so welcome and answering any queries! We will enjoy cooking dishes from your cooking book!
