About the property

3 bedroom 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6. private pool, free Wifi. Historic Montefrio

Set on a hillside the property enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and Parapanda Mountain. A peaceful location yet perfectly situated for exploring the real Andalucia and just a short drive to the historic town of Montefrio, featured in National Geographic as no4 in the top ten villages with the most spectacular views, in the world!

Casa Miguel has been sympathetically and beautifully restored and retains many original features such as beamed ceilings and stone floors. Thick walls keep the inside of the house cool during the summer months and warm in the winter. The house has Moroccan style decor in keeping with this historic area.

The front door opens into a well equipped traditional Spanish kitchen/diner which leads through into the cosy living room with wood burner. Stairs give access to a double bedroom with Spanish bed and then through into a twin bedroom which has separate access via the upper terrace. The upper terrace has stunning 360 degree views and overlooks the pool. Steps lead back down to the front of the house. The third, double bedroom with en-suite is accessed via the main terrace. The main bathroom is situated on the ground floor.

At the front of Casa Miguel is an area perfect for dining alfresco and appreciating the expansive views over the olive groves to the mountain opposite. A low gate leads down steps to a shaded seating area.

The private pool is situated to the side of the house through a gateway where you will find plenty of space for sunbathing, barbequing etc. You will also find a poolside lounge perfect for escaping the midday sun.

Casa Miguel has private parking for at least two cars.

Casa Miguel is REGISTERED with the tourist board: VTAR/GR/00933

About Jane

Mick and I spent the first few years of our Spanish adventure renovating and restoring Casa Miguel with our own hands.

Jane purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Jane chose Montefrío

We knew from the outset that a coastal property was not for us. We wanted the 'real Spain'. We also wanted easy access to Granada, Cordoba and Seville. On arrival in Montefrio we new it was perfect for us. Not only is Montefrio stunningly beautiful but it is perfectly located and unspoilt.

What makes this cottage unique

Other properties we looked at could not rival Casa Miguel for its stunning views and reform potential with its original features.

Beautiful secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

On a hillside overlooking olive groves, this is a beautiful cottage in a quiet location with great views. Jane, the owner, was welcoming and really helpful. The photos pretty much do this place justice - it really is a delightful spot, well located for local towns like Montefrío, but also for longer trips. We had two day trips to Granada and Córdoba. Its also a great place for just relaxing. The cottage is well equipped with most facilities and kitchen utensils etc that you need. The decor is rustic and totally appropriate, so don't expect space-age gadgets, and the interior is suitably quirky (including low-hanging beams for tall people to watch out for!). The twin room is off the main double bedroom, and the other double bedroom and bathroom is separate from the main house (by about a 10 foot walk, not totally isolated), a configuration that could work well for families or groups. As well as the pool area, there are effectively three other terrace areas for seating and/or dining, on three levels. Whilst we had fine weather, it was too cool to try out the pool on our trip. I'm sure it is great in summer. We also appreciated the log burner on chilly spring nights.

This is a really great place to stay, and I'd happily return if we were revisiting the area.

Wonderful place to relax and close to so much...

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a late flight and the owners had pre-loaded the log burner as it was a cool night - what a lovely first impression. The villa was all we had dreamed of and was very comfortable, but so authentic. The eye for detail of the accommodation was first class and have never stayed in such a beautiful location. The owners left us in peace, but we're always contactable for advice on the local area and suggested some wonderful trips. MONTEFRIO was so lovely, especially at night and our trips to Alcala la real, Granada were just magical. We couldn't of asked for better hosts and we didn't want to leave. It was like our own villa! We can't wait to go back later in the year and neither can the kids. They had a great time in the pool. I would recommend it to singles and families as it has everything you need. Our freinds have also booked in for later in the year and we are hoping we can find the time to go back in the late summer, if they have availability. Thank you to Jane and Mick, great hosts The best villa we have stayed at in 13 years. No need to go anywhere else in Spain, our search is over!
