El Tejar villa near Ronda

This uniquely beautiful holiday villa near Ronda is the highest property in the village of Montecorto with inspirational views out to the Grazalema mountains. This self-catering holiday accommodation is stylishly furnished with every creature comfort yet remains true to the very best traditions of Andalucian rural architecture.

The Big Picture

The villa is a quarter of an hour's drive from Ronda, surrounded by a terraced garden where a beautiful swimming pool has been sculpted into the hillside. There are olive and orange trees, almonds and bamboo, jasmine, and bougainvillea as well as an enormous palm tree: it has heaps of romantic allure. The garden is a really intimate spot from where you'll see no other buildings, only the jagged peaks of the distant Sierra de Ronda. It's utterly secluded yet you can wander down to the village shops, bars and restaurants in less than five minutes.

The Sitting Room

The villa's sitting room has high French windows which open out to the Ronda and Grazalema mountains. There are books and DVDs, eye-catching works of art, hundreds of books and information about what to see and do in Ronda, Granada, Sevilla etc. There's satellite TV with DVD player, wifi internet as well as CD player and radio. Just outside is a jasmine-clad terrace with soaring mountain views. It's a perfect place for alfresco dining. To one side is a small bar area with a second fridge, perfect for keeping your poolside drinks and snacks cool during the hot Andalucían summer.


The villa has four bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. Beds are large with top spec' mattresses with top quality pillows and linen. Two bedrooms have twin beds, two have doubles whilst all have views out to the high peaks of the Sierra de Ronda. Bathrooms come with heated towel racks and are big on space. Three have baths with overhead rain showers whilst the lower double has a walk-in overhead shower. We provide excellent towels as well as chunky bars of soap. Beds are made up daily by your housekeeper - a nice holiday treat.

Dining Room

In the beamed dining room you'll find more beautiful paintings and engravings and a table that comfortably seats up to 8.  It's a lovely spot for dining in style with family and friends although for much of the year you'll probably be dining alfresco just outside the kitchen on a vine-shaded terrace. There's a woodburning stove as well as radiators. Off to one side is the villa's open plan kichen from where steps lead down to a smaller room where there are books and a desk with an iMac computer.


The villa's kitchen has all you need for self-catering in style. There are masses of pots and pans, attractive crockery and cutlery, and all that you need for self-catering: dishwasher, oven and grill, microwave, fridge freezer along with plenty of kitchen instrumentalia. Leading off from the kitchen is a walk-in pantry where you'll find a wash machine and dryer. The open-plan layout of the kitchen is conducive to easy and convivial self-catering though you can also let your housekeeper take charge of the cooking. Let us know a few days in advance and we can arrange for a hamper of groceries to be awaiting for your arrival.


Daily help by a charming housekeeper is included in the rental price of the villa, who comes in to clean and tidies late in the morning. She can also prepare delicious meals. We consider this to be one of the things that make a stay at the villa so unique, giving you a chance to experience Slow Food Andalucían style, using locally sourced produce. The food is as good as that of some of Ronda's best restaurants and you don't need to move an inch from your mountain-facing terrace. If you prefer the house can be rented without this daily home help.
