Casa Dos Robles
Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Montefrio Convento at night
Dos Robles is a homely, family cortijo set in its own secure and private grounds, easily accessible and only 4km from the beautiful and historic town of montefrio. The entrance opens into a lounge tv room with log burning stove. The kitchen is equipped with hob, oven, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave and tostada machine. From the kitchen there is an office/ store area. Off the living area is the master bedroom complete with en-suite, a twin bedded room and along a short corridor is the newly refurbished bathroom and the second double bedroom.
Keen birdwatchers will be delighted with the visiting swifts and swallows swooping down for a drink at the pool in late afternoon and the joyful sound of the "hoop-hoop" bird. Stargazers will be enthralled at the clear night sky with little ambient light to spoil the view. Hill walkers can walk up behind the cortijo to the "penas", a rugged escarpment with stunning views of the valley floor, or for the more adventurous climb Parapanda.

The Andalucia region
The region around Montefrio is coverd by olive groves, being the main resource it gets extremely busy in the winter months while harvesting is in progress. cool in the winter and hot in the summer sums up the climate with the occasional snow shower in the depths of winter due to the elevation. It can reach 30C plus in the height of summer but there is always the welcome pool to cool off in.
To the south east Granada is only 45 mins away and is truly cosmopolitan with many moorish styled buildings and of course the Alhambra palace a few km ouside of the city is well worth a visit, nearby the Sierra Nevada Mountains just south of Granada offer fantastic Skiing/Snowboarding facilities with snowcover into April (2009 was a particularly good year), and in summer provide wonderful hill walking opportunities.
Around 1.5 hours drive would get you there.
Nearer to home the Parapanda moutain is very accessible either by vehicle up a bumpy track or on foot.
Right behind the house is the escarpment known as the Penas also worth investigating.
We love this area as it manages to maintain its own independence and traditional values. Far removed from the hustle and bustle on the coast. Yet only a 5 min drive into town.
Definitely no Timeshare Touts here! THE population of around 4000 are largely dependent on the olive harvest and tourism, you need to at least try to "hablar Español" (they will really appreciate it) yet we are less than an hours drive to the cosmopolitan delights of Granada, with the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby.
