Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

Driving along the Costa del Sol overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, about 30 minutes away from Malaga Airport you will enter La Axarquia, a rural region still unspoilt by tourism. Green countryside with white-washed villages, tranquillity and a different way of life under the year-round sunshine of Andalucia are waiting for you. Going up from Torre del Mar into the mountains you will reach Lake Viñuela, a man-made reservoir surrounded by mountains, not only providing the area with water but also forming a spectacular and harmonic part of attraction of this unique and scenic landscape. here you will find several bars/restaurants offering fantastic food.Heading inland from here you will reach the charming village of Riogordo, nestled into this stunning countryside with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Riogordo translates to Fat River, which is what the village is know for. . Torre del Mar with beaches and all facilities is 20 min away.

Riogordo

The pretty whitewashed village of Riogordo lies in the region of Axarquia. This small and unspoilt area of Andalucia –to the north east of Malaga - is still a well kept secret. Untouched by mass tourism, and surrounded by National Parks it is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty between the Sea and Sierras. The village offers very reasonable local restaurants and excellent shopping facilities. Only 20 minutes to the Mediterranean coast, and 40 minutes to Malaga international airport. Due to good motorway connections, Granada and Antequera can be reached in 1 hour, Cordoba and Seville in 2 hours. Lake Vinuela is 10 mins by car. The village of Riogordo is five minutes away by car where most grocery items may be purchased as well as freshly baked bread. Fresh fish, four butcher's and two banks. Wednesday there is a street market. There is a good choice of local restaurants and bars near by, as well as dozens to choose from at the coast, catering for all tastes. 24 hour medical centre in nearby Colmenar.

“Spectacular view and total tranquility”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

Casa Monte Clara is a fantastic holiday location with its spectacular panoramic view of mountains, the local cozy town Riogordo in the valley, Olive groves and the occational goat shepherd. If you are looking for that "Andalusian feel" this is great place to try it out!

Many thanks for your review, just about sums it up. Hope to see you again sometime.

“Fantastic views. Great value for money.”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

Very enjoyable and peaceful stay at the Casa Monte Clara. Set in the hills, it is worth coming here just for the views and for the surrounding walks. The photos really do not do the ever changing views justice. The villa was clean and well equipped - thanks to hosts Lisa & Julian - with nice little extras such as English TV, CD player, plenty of books and both pool and bathroom towels provided. Riogorda is a charming little village with extremely friendly locals and a few nice bars and restaurants and is just a few minutes drive away. Although we did prefer to stay at the villa and have sunset BBQ's and enjoy the views from the terrace rather then venture into the village everynight. Would love to return.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay. The views are really great, I will admit. Thats what we loved most about the house. Ever changing with the sun , shade and sunsets.
