About the property

Charming Village Cottage in peaceful location with pretty, private patio garden

Casita de las Estrellas is a very spacious split - level single-storey cottage located in the old Moorish quarter of the village known as Barrio Nazari. Originally a very small cottage which has probably been on the site in excess of 100 years, we have sympathetically extended it to provide the current luxurious accommodation. Although only a one bedroom cottage, this is certainly not short on space, it has one very large bedroom with an en-suite shower/wet room. The Lounge/ Dining area is also large and spacious with double doors opening onto the patio garden. The Kitchen is small but well equipped with everything you may need to prepare meals. The cottage is furnished as our home in Spain, so all fittings and furnishings are of the highest standard. It's pretty private patio garden provides an ideal place for 'al fresco' dining, reading, or just relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere. It is just a short walk (5 mins) down to the village square, and within about 3 minutes you can be at the 'Mirador' which provides stunning views over the village and surrounding mountains.

About Patricia Lane & Ian Bradley

Hi we are Ian & Patricia, The photograph shows us at the Casita, dressed in our costumes for 'The Battle of the Bridge' a wonderful event that takes place over a weekend towards the end of October, The village steps back 200 years to celebrate a point in its history when the local people routed Napoleon's soldiers. A great event when Montejaquenos and visitors join together to commemorate the battle. We first came to Montejaque in the early 90's and loved it so much that we decided to buy a house here. We are now retired and love to spend time in Casita de las Estrellas, but when we aren't here we would love to share it with you. We enjoy walking in the area, it is so beautiful and there are walks to suit all abilities. Walking also allows us to indulge our other pleasures of bird watching and wild flowers - so all in all it is the perfect place for us. Patricia is an artist and she finds lots of inspiration for her paintings in this part of Andalucia. We have lots of friends in the village so when we stay it really is home from home.

Patricia Lane & Ian Bradley purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Patricia Lane & Ian Bradley chose Ronda area

When we first had the opportunity to buy the casita we fell in love with its character, and its position in the village. We love the peace and tranquility - but we can be in the village square to enjoy the bars etc. in less than 5 mins. After we bought the casita we were able to acquire a small plot of land at the rear which gave us the opportunity to sympathetically extend as well as providing us with a delightful and very private patio garden. For us the village and the casita are our little slice of paradise :-)

What makes this cottage unique

Our part of the village is very quiet and tranquil, and is still much as it was years ago. Local people going about their daily lives as they always have. No-one hurries and they always have time to pass the time of day. Even if you don't speak the language - an 'Hola' from you will always be returned with a greeting and a smile. Try it and see :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time here! The cottage is superb, thoughtfully equipped and having a modern, stylish feel in a lovely traditional Spanish village. Set in a stunning location, we recommend you tour the surrounding villages which boast some rewarding treks across mountain passes - Zahara to Grazalema or around lakes (tranquil swimming) east of Teba. Ronda is spectacular and Seville in easy reach! The morning and evening light in this area of Andalusia make every view mellow with beauty. Enjoy your breakfast in the delightful courtyard garden and visit the Italian in the village.

You will feel refreshed and uplifted. Highly recommend!!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 75 Miles Nearest Barpub : Village Square at 100 Metres Nearest Train : Benaojan at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Village at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : San Pedro at 50 Miles Car: necessary

Throughout the year Montejaque is an ideal location for bird-watching; Griffon Vultures soar overhead daily, and several raptors species nest and breed here. The spring & autumn migration gives sightings of many birds not normally resident in the area. For botanists spring and early summer is an absolute joy with many wild flower species including several orchids.

Inspiring scenery and quaint local houses provide limitless subjects for artists to capture the essence of this lovely area.
