What can I say?! We have spent so many memorable holidays in and around Nerja over the past 30 years and this year was no exception! The villa – exceptionally designed and tastefully furnished. The gardens – wonderfully landscaped. The view – something special. Although the villa was ‘ours’ for a week, this is Danny’s villa and we raise our glasses to you. It exceeded our expectations on every single level. Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise!
We have just got back from our fantastic family holiday of a lifetime! Wow! It was well worth me trusting the recommendation of my friend’s friend… Sometimes it’s just best to keep it simple and follow the energy of things… 🙂 The villa exceeded all our expectations! El Monte Bajo is a truly authentic Spanish haven of peace, an old building with a very good feel to it, renovated to meet all our needs… and more!, finished to the very highest of standards, both inside and out.
Let’s start at the beginning… Nerja is really within about an easy hour or so of drive away both from Malaga and Granada!, so u can go on day trips easily from here if u wished..
The property is situated high up above and slightly out of town of Nerja, a fact which we loved!, with fantastic views over the town and the sea, it’s a a real secluded oasis of beauty and rest… You can enjoy perfect privacy yet r well looked after by the Spanish staff- gardener, maintenance man – whom one can depend on in case anything would need doing/ fixing…but they were really very respectful of our privacy…
With two teenage boys, aged 17 and almost 15, we didn’t really know how it would work out but we couldn’t have had a better base than El Monte Bajo. In fact we found it really hard to leave at all and ended up spending most of our time at the property, sitting at the many wonderful spots the garden affords, reading, chilling or watching the plentiful wildlife… or have a swim in the lovely, generous-sized pool… but if shade is what one is after, there r plenty of sheltered spots outside and it’s really nice and space is inside too to just chill alone or come together and enjoy each other’s company. The lounge we found just perfect for that! Kitchen, and the house in general is very well equipped, en-suit bathrooms all beautiful and very stylish…
If u r planning to have a break from the everyday hum-drum of life and would like to spend some time in Paradise, El Monte Bsjo is definitely the place for u to book! We r also planning to return one day soon! Trust the above was of help. If u would like to ask about anything I said or didn’t mention perhaps, feel free to get in touch!
Lots of love,
Second time staying here and again can't fault it in anyway. Most beautiful place in beautiful area. We hired a car this time which was even better. Easy too drive around Nerja town centre and very easy too find El Monte Bajo. Kids absolutely loved the garden full of flowers and fruits from the trees. We spent hours playing and laying around the swimming pool which is more than big enough for 4 of us. Shall be returning for many years too come as feel I can't stay anywhere but there as it won't come close too how perfect it is there.
Lovely villa with a great pool and fantastic gardens. The villa is finished to a very high standard and we just spent a lot of our holiday relaxing in the villa, pool and gardens – no need to go out with such great surroundings! There are lots of areas around the pool for sitting and reading in the sunshine too. Well equipped kitchen and excellent en-suite bathrooms. We came away feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. Our kids loved the pool especially enjoying going in at night with the multi-coloured lights on around the garden. Would recommend the villa very highly and hope to come back one day.
We have had the most wonderful holiday staying in El Monte Bajo.
We loved the villa, the gardens, the pool, the views, the location and the privacy. Everything exceeded our expectations.
Just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay at El Monte Bajo. From the moment you arrive you can't help but relax and feel at home. It is a homely and welcoming villa. The gardens and villa are beautiful. We loved it so much we found it very difficult to leave. The attention to detail inside and outside is amazing and it is obvious that a lot of time and care has been spent on making the villa the fabulous place it is today. Very easy to find following driving instructions given by Danny. A car is essential unless you like a really long walk up and down hill. This makes the villa very private and not overlooked at all. Just perfect! Can't wait to return.
Our family of six people enjoyed a perfect stay at El monte Bajo. The villa was in perfect shape and so was the beautiful garden. We stayed for 8 days en loved the villa, the great view on the mountains and sea. The villa is situated on the top of a hill close to the town of Nerja.
We made many trips to Malaga (beuatiful ciy), Granada, the mountains and seaside.
The villa itself is very nice and offers a lot of space. Large bedrooms with separate bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen.
We strongly recommend El Monte Bajo to anybody longing for peace, great views, luxury and privacy.
And if you should stay at El Monte Bajo make the stunning walk through the river Chillar (Rio Chillar) all the way up in the mountains. Very refreshing and beuatiful.
Just the best time-The peaceful and beautiful garden has its own tropical micro-climate as there is a large sheltering wall on the east side. It is a tropical paradise with organic fruit and salad growing in the garden and frogs; squirrels; bird-life all the time. Plus a cat who comes calling for feeding twice a day :).
The house is absolutely beautiful and when you are staying there, it is as though no-one else is sharing your world. We always hire a car and it is only a ten minute drive to the centre of Nerja where there is bustling life, shops and delightful restaurants. We have been a couple of times already and it is one of our favourite destinations. We cannot recommend highly enough if you are looking for the holiday of a lifetime.
Visited August 2016
Absolutely loved it we have booked to go again.
Beautiful house with beautiful views. Everything you can possibly want from A holiday and more. The gardens are perfect with flowers. We loved the pond watching the frogs jumping in and out. The pool is perfect there were 4 of us 2 kids and 2 adults and we all enjoyed it even more so the kids who was in it from sun up too sun down. Beautifully decorated with lovely bathrooms too match. Yes a little out of the way but not too far an 8 minute taxi ride too Nerja where there are shops bars and restaurants too please all. Definitely found a heaven we shall return too for many years too come.
