Thanks for your email. The three of us had an enjoyable and relaxing break. El Monte Bajo was truly a beautiful villa.
The villa is very well equipped and incredibly clean. My wife is going to write a review to put on the internet. Thanks again and hopefully we will speak again in the future.

We have now arrived at home from our visit in Spain. It was a marvellous place .
The first week we stayed att your place with our children and grandchildren. We were nine persons. All of us enjoyed the visit very well. The small children liked the pool and the large green where they could play. The second week I and my wife enjoyed us by sitting in the patio looking out in your beautiful garden or up to the mountain or out of the sea.The weather was very fine all the time. We all thought that Monte Bajo was the best place we ever had visited during our vacations.

Back home safe and sound.
….It is as you rightly pointed out a lovely, lovely spot and the house has a very authentic feel to it – which we enjoyed as well as the rugged countryside roundabout which made for some enjoyable runs.

Thank you for a great week. What a surprise to arrive at the property & find something very special although we'd seen the photos previously. The house was exactly what we were after.

Not much to say really. Two weeks of glorious sun, peace and quiet and good showers ! The shower was the only thing I could find fault with last year and you've nailed that one. Everything else was just fine as we figured it would be. Oscar is a very helpful guy, not that we had recourse to use him either.
We're off to Australia next year but I think I'll be back to you for 2013....
If you need me to say pleasant things on Facebook or anything ( which I think i said I'd do last year but failed ) just point me in the right direction.

Thanks again for letting us stay in your property. We truly enjoyed our stay, and I was charmed by the villa and its garden.
We were quite happy with the cleaning, Oscar and Joaquin + the pool boy. And I was very pleased to get prompt replies from you every single time.
Thanks to your thorough guide booklet, we visited the Nerja Caves, Bella Roma pizzeria and Maro Beach. We even went to Granada (the quick A7 -route is simply breath taking!).

RENTING A VEHICLE
You'll need to rent a car as the property is 5 minutes up a hillside (walking in the heat of the day doesn't suit everyone !). We can advise on special car hire rates for visitors - From around £70 in low season and £100 per week in high season.
The Andalucia region
The area enjoys a subtropical climate with warm summers and mild winters.
Once a pueblo where the locals eaked out a living from agriculture and fishing, the village has grown into a smallish town of some 18,000 people but still retains much of its charm and appeal of days gone by. Locally there are attractions ranging from local beaches, watersports, tennis, golf, horseriding while the Caves f Nerja (Cuevas de Nerja) are 10 minutes away - and within a couple of hours you'll be in the heart of major historic cities such as Granada, Seville & Cordoba. International shopping is possible 45 minutes away in Malaga.

We have visited El Monte Bajo twice in April 2011 and again in April 2012. The first time it was a surprise to arrive there and find such an enchanting place, so peaceful and calm and yet just 5 minutes from the beach and the town. The house is rustic and authentic, spacious and welcoming. To be honest, we had a good feeling about it from the moment the owner sent us the directions and his 'guide o the house & the local area'. We could see the care and attention that had gone into the preparation of the notes and that was follwed through when we arrived.
The gardens the most special we have ever seen and the pool worked very well for both the adults & children on the steps in the shallow end. The perfect environment has led us to spend more and more time at the property, barbecuing and generally relaxing in the evenings. The nightime illumination creates a magical atmosphere. We have rented villas before and so often you come away feeling that you have not really experienced being in a Spanish environment, but not here, it was truly like being in the middle of rural Andalucia yet so close to the coast. It was also marvellous to meet Jose the pool man and Joaquin, the gardener for the last 25 years. The property manager Oscar is exceedingly helpful and even booked us a bullfight for us (sad I know!) In terms of negatives, there were none for us, the property was accurately described. A car is required although we left it at the villa a couple of nights and got taxis back for around 9 euros. We thought long and hard before writng a review as we don't really want too many people to find El Monte Bajo as we feel it's our own secret discovery.
