Casa Monte is a charming 2 bedroom Casa all on 1 level, with amazing views and set in a stunning location which fully allows you to appreciate the incredible setting, views and privacy it offers.
The owners have very much set the Casa up for cosy evenings inside and lovely alfresco dining outside. There is comfortable seating throughout and to look across to the majestic Mount Maroma directly in front of the Casa or towards the rock known as La Peña where you may get the chance to see birds of prey heading back to their nests is incredible.
The lovely 7 x 3 m pool is a welcome relief from the summer sun and as it is no deeper than 1.65m and in the shallow end 1 metre, it lends itself to a relaxing position to savour a glass of vino albeit in a plastic glass of course and look over the views that draw you in.
The Casa itself is great for couples but is suitable for smaller families, realistically it sleeps 4 in 2 double beds, but there is a facility to have a double and a fold up single bed in the 2nd bedroom, hence 5 can be accommodated.
There is WiFi and UK TV with plenty of channels.
The living area is open plan so the chef is not left out of the family fun and can even watch TV whilst cooking up a Paella. There is room for 4 to eat inside but in most of the season I am sure the plates and drinks will be taken outside under the lovely shaded area or even the gas BBQ and portable gas ring hob will become part of the routine for cooking.
This is an excellent value rental for what it offers with facilities and privacy.
Please note the private location is reached via a steep and longish concrete drive, not an issue as wide and concrete but a front wheel drive car would be best.

We stayed at Casa Monte from October 1st till the end of December while we were looking for our own home to start our lives in Spain and it really was a perfect place to stay. Not only has David been very supportive and helpful, the owners have also been very kind and willing to help so we felt at home straight away! The house is very beautiful, cosy and set up to enjoy the view which is just stunning. In October we could still eat outside and enjoy the sun and the pretty garden. When it got a little colder around the end of November we had the fireplace to sit by with a glass of wine after we walked our dog and enjoyed all the different views the mountains have to offer. We really enjoyed the tranquillity and the feeling of being away from it all whilst also being close to the village, shopping and Malaga if you wanted. All in all we can highly recommend Casa Monte and if we hadn't found our own home we would be back for a summer stay!
Casa Monte was the perfect secluded hideaway for two weeks in August. We particularly loved the outside kitchen and seating area with stunning views. We walked for miles early in the day before it got too hot then chilled by the lovely, clean pool in the glorious sunshine. One night we even walked all the way to Comares for drinks and then back again!! The casa has everything you need for a relaxing stay and both David and Jacqui were fantastic managers, nothing was too much trouble. Great that there was a king size bed and air conditioning in the master bedroom. Only a 35 minute drive to the beach when we fancied a change from the pool and just 10 minutes down to Benamargosa or up to Comares for Menu del Dia. We loved it here and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy the wonderful walks and small villages and, of course, chilling by the pool with a glass of Tinto de Verano.
We had a wonderful holiday at the villa - views are amazing and it is very quiet here. The villa was clean and there was everything we needed both outside and inside and of course also a nice pool. There were many beautiful flowers and plants that made it nice.
The descent to the villa is a little steep but as Phil said: you get used to it 🙂
Would clearly recommend the villa for families or couples who would like a little away from it all.
Correspondence with David within our arrival and during our stay was super.
We had a fantastic week at Casa Monte,
We have stayed in many villa's over the years this one has to be one of the best.
It was so peaceful, quiet and relaxing, and the views were fantastic, we even saw the eagles below us.
I tend to judge a villa by it's pool and this one was great very clean. I did struggle with the access drive a bit but it didn't detract from the holiday. As the title says Fantastic!!!
We had a lovely stay at this casa; what a fabulous secluded location and amazing views. Everything needed for a comfortable stay was provided, with plenty of kitchen utensils, crockery and glasses. Fresh lemons and almonds available on site!! Nice pool and sun loungers, with plenty of outside seating in sun or shade and the outdoor kitchen was a bonus. We will definitely visit again, but David and Jacqui have other enticing properties to try.
We have just had the most awesome weeks break here.
We totally agree with the previous reviews.
The decent down the very steep drive way was a little daunting at first.
We think that the coffee cafetiere was way to small and needs up grading in size.Most of the lids from all the plastic / Tupperware containers were missing .
What an absolutely fabulous villa. The views are wonderful and the villa cool in the heat of the day.
The pool has been a welcome relief in the heat of the sun, but also there is a cooling breeze that kept us cool.
On an evening we would sit on the sofa with the fan keeping us cool and watching the lights changing colour in the pool. When the lights were on out side we would watch the little lizards running on the wall around the lights.
This is 3rd fabulous villa we have rented from David & Jacqui and they have never let us down
Thank you Lisa Gary Holly & Harry
We have just returned from a week at Casa Monte and would prefer to keep this as our little secret !
What a great little property, private and secluded, but with all the modern conveniences you need, and yet only 10 mins from Comares.
This was just what we wanted for a peaceful break, so happy with it , we booked to come back in September before we left.
Second time we have booked with David at Vine Ridge, and been very happy both times.
