El Cortijo de Los Siete Olivos. En unik 150 år gammelt bondehus, renoveret for at bevare sin oprindelige karakter, med smuk panoramaudsigt over olivenlunde og på tværs af dalen til Parapanda bjerget. Den hvidkalkede hus med lav-bjælkelofter, putter på en bjergskråning under mørke Holm egetræer. Selvom fuldt moderniseret den undgår sterilitet, der kan karakterisere nyligt renoverede bygninger, det har en varm atmosfære, hvor gamle -stil indvendige indretning synes at fusionere organisk med vægge og gulv i traditionelle andalusiske måde. Indkvarteringen består af stuehus og lidt tilstødende hus, hver med sin egen ugeneret terrasse. Der er en charmerende poolen i natursten, og en "vild" have med granatæble, mandel-og oliventræer. Den lille by Montefrio er kun 5 min kørsel fra huset, hvor du kan finde alt hvad du behøver for dit ophold, og den storslåede by Granada kun 45 km væk.

We spent two weeks here in the hot sun of July. The pool was well used to cool us down. The place is idyllic and the owner has thought of everything in the kitchen. The views are wonderful and the town and area are unspoilt by tourism. The sunbeds had seen better days and the beds were lumpy (we got used to them) but if you can live with that the Cortijo is full of charm, very rustic and the history of the building and it’s owners/occupiers is very interesting. The owner, Margaret, was extremely helpful and understanding. We all fell in love with El Cortijo de los Siete Olivos. We visited the Dolmans in an area run by a crazy lady, passionate about their safe-keeping. The Alhambra palace is also a must see.
Thank you for your review, and 5 star rating, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Los Siete Olivos. You clearly appreciated the rustic and peaceful nature of our house and the surrounding area. Thank you also for your helpful comments. With regard to your remark about 'lumpy beds' we are surprised, as neither family nor other guests have ever mentioned this before. Could it have been the quilted Ikea mattress toppers that are under the mattress protectors, on every bed? In any case we will make comprehensive checks when we return to the house ourselves in a weeks time, to ensure optimum comfort for future guests.
Its true that the strong summer heat especially around the swimming pool terrace do cause some wear and tear on the sunbeds. We will certainly look to renew these before next summer letting season.
Our best villa ever!!!
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful villa. I am always looking for a place like this to stay and they are so rare to find. Romantic authentic rustic and beautiful. The views and location are stunning. The pool was big and provided hours of entertainment. the separate casita was brilliant for hosting friends and mother. Montefrio is a beautiful walk away and is a real gem if authentic Spain is what you are looking for. We loved it, very pretty, friendly and full of character. Margaret the owner was the perfect host providing gems of advice and wisdom, and always replied to our enquiries straight away so generously.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you really enjoyed your month long stay in Montefrio, and enjoyed such a traditional Spanish experience.

Beautiful location, lovely quaint cottage and great pool
The terrace was gorgeous, with spectacular views although don't forget the mosquito repellent if sitting out in the evening. Wifi was good and the kitchen spacious and well equipped. Loved the pool area - great temperature in pool. Unfortunately the weather was unusually hot some of the time we were there so the upstairs rooms were difficult to sleep in - downstairs remained relatively cool though. We had a very relaxing time at the cottage with plenty of privacy. Rather a lot of ants both in and out of the cottage but you get used to them! We would recommend the restaurant Jomay as the family and staff were very friendly (despite our language barrier) and generous and food the best in village. Stunning views in Montefrio.
marvellous Monetario Farmhouse
We were lucky enough to have spent a whole month in such a beautiful, peaceful spot. The ideal place to meet up with family and friends.
The farmhouse is a short way out of the beautiful town of Monefrio accessed by a track through the olive groves, secluded and quiet apart from the sounds of birds, peacocks.
Margaret , the owner offered very welcome advice on what to do and see both before and during the holiday and was always easily accessible by email.
The farmhouse is well equipped and has a lovely homely feel of a much loved property. The layout offers space for different age or family groups to holiday together.
There are many interesting places to visit, one of the highlights being a trip to Granada and staying at the lovely Hotel America in the Alhambra grounds. Margaret the owner recommended this and was definitely worth doing. It means you miss the crowds in the early morning and evening. We also did some trips to Malaga, Rhonda, Alcala La Real, Alhama la Granada, Moncil , Antiquera and Monachil all well worth a visit.
Even though we did do many trips we thoroughly enjoyed just staying around the terrace or by the pool. As the weather was so good during our stay we spent most days swimming in the lovely pool.
We loved going into Montefio most days for our supplies of milk, bread, wine, fruit and cheeses etc. The locals hardly spoke any English but were always very helpful and welcoming.
We mainly ate on the terrace at the farmhouse but did enjoy a meal at El Pregonero and the Convent at the weekend.
We could have done with even more than a month as we did not see everything we wanted to. We would thoroughly recommend this farmhouse to anyone who enjoys staying in a quiet, beautiful place with stunning views in an area with stunning scenery and plenty of history. Thanks Margaret for allowing us to stay in your wonderful, peaceful property.
Thank you so much for telling us about all the things you enjoyed during your stay in our Montefrio farmhouse. We are so pleased that you had a good holiday, and made the most , during the month, of the many interesting places to visit in the area.
Restored Farmhouse with Pool
Lovely restored old farmhouse in the countryside around Montefrio. House was very well equipped with plenty of space and a lovely patio with stupendous views of the surrounding olive groves and hills.
There was also a large a clean pool that we all enjoyed, especially given the July heat.
Well worth a visit!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind comments

This year my husband and I decided to have a rather different Christmas and take our three grown up children ( in their 20's) to Spain. We had a great time in the farmhouse which provided the accommodation we required ( they each like their privacy) and wonderful views. We were warmly welcomed on arrival - literally and metaphorically which was very helpful for the weather was cold and the log fire and heaters much needed, and much appreciated. While the rooms are small we fitted in well and the sunshine allowed us to eat outside at lunch time. Finding everything in apple pie order and clean was a great boon. The fixtures and fittings are not grand but they look like fond treasures found and guarded over years and they work.
Its a very peaceful spot and a great treat to be able to walk through the olive groves into town (Montefrio) and into the hills. Margaret Cook and her husband leave a very useful vade mecum file on local walks, where to eat and how to get to Grenada, Malaga etc.
We had two jaunts in our 5 days: one to Grenada and a second to ski in the Sierra Nevada. Both were great fun. But the local walks and mooching round Montefrio , and reading books by the fire, were equally good fun. We returned after 5 days feeling mentally relaxed and physically in much better shape than we would have been after the usual 5 days of big eating and TV watching in the UK.
Montefrio er blevet udpeget i 2015 som "en af de 10 smukkeste landsby visninger i verden 'af National Geographic Spanien.
Coast / Beach:
Kysten af Costa del Sol med alle dens smukke byer og livlige attraktioner er en køretur på en time og en halv. Malaga i sig selv er en fin by med en historisk kvarter, herunder Picasso-museet, Carmen Thyssen Museum og romerske amfiteater. Der kan du finde gode shoppingmuligheder, livlige barer og street underholdning. Historisk Granada, med den verdensberømte Alhambra Palace, barer butikker og caféer er en 40 kilometers kørsel væk.
Vores nærmeste lufthavn er Granada, hvilket er 40 minutter fra huset, men Malaga tilbyder mange flere fly fra England, og er en time og en halv kørsel. Vi anser biludlejning fra Malaga er mere eller mindre afgørende betydning, da selv om det er muligt at nå Montefrio med offentlig transport via Granada og at gå fra byen til huset, det er en 50 minutters gang op helt en stejl bakke, hvorfra stoppesteder .
Tre kilometer fra byen og fyrre kilometer fra Granada gør dagligt bor enkel. Alhambra Palace er let tilgængelig i Granada. De vidunderlige byer i Cordoba og Sevilla er inden for rækkevidde. Cordoba er en dags udflugt og Sevilla er en fem timers rundt tur. Lokale byer, landsbyer og naturparker inden for en times kørsel fra Montefrio tilbyde mange andre muligheder for sightseeing.
Montefrio er en af de hvide byer (Pueblos Blancos) i Andalusien og er uspoleret af turismen. Det er en arbejdsgruppe by af oliven landmænd, hvor få mennesker taler engelsk, men deres venlige hjælpsom måde mere end kompenserer for vores utilstrækkelige spansk. Montefrio tilbyder et komplet udvalg af lokale butikker, banker, supermarkeder. Der er venskabelig konkurrence mellem Bars at lokke besøgende med fine tapas, der tilbydes gratis med hver drink. Også byens swimmingpool, som er åben om sommeren har en stor bar / restaurant. Om aftenen kan du spise der, og det er meget populært med lokalbefolkningen, men som sædvanlig i det sydlige Spanien, hvis du ønsker at spise meget før 9/9. 30 du skal spise alene!
Alle barer tilbyder måltider, er der også restauranter for en mere formel madoplevelse.
For yderligere madindkøb er der et ugentligt marked, et bageri, ost og olie kooperativer oliven tilbyder lokale råvarer og også lokalt produceret "jamon".
Montefrio er en farverig samfund med mange fester og fester i løbet af året.
Regionen Montefrio har været beboet i tusinder af år, der går tilbage til midten af stenalderen. En historisk by, dens mauriske tårn var det sidste sted at være belejret af katolske monarker Ferdinand og Isabella i 1486 før den endelige tilbagetrækning af maurerne fra Granada. Du kan se spor her fra mange forskellige kulturer og civilisationer samt finde muligheder for vandreture, cykling, klatring og se på fugle. Vi giver besøgende med en masse oplysninger og vejledning til byen og området og steder af interesse, herunder vandreture fra huset. En gåtur gennem olivenlunde kan tage dig til en ruineret middelalderlige landsby, resterne af et romersk fort og videre til en fantastisk neolitiske site af stendysser. En guidet tur i dysserne fra ejeren af webstedet kan bestilles på turistkontoret i Montefrio.
