................................................................. Our rustic- style farmhouse sits with all her grace and majesty in an elevated south facing position, gazing out over a tropical garden with the sea lapping against the shore beyond.Some 45 minutes by car from Malaga airport, moments from the beach and minutes from the coastal pueblo of Nerja, the house and gardens aludes dignity and charm enough to earn your respect. properties like this are not built, they evolve over the decades or centuries.

There are no noisy neighbours or badly designed apartment blocks around here, instead your views are protected for now and for the future as we sit just above the area’s last pine forest – protected space.
The finca or farmhouse is an appealing terracotta roofed home with generous views of the garden, the sea and the precious Sierra Almijara mountains. A hidden jewel not visible from the main road and known only to a handful of locals, this is natural paradise where the air is clean, the birds sing and the fruit trees are close at hand. That being said, civilization is not too far away, a five minute car ride or a 20 minute walk along the beach into the Balcon de Europa in the heart of Nerja.
Set in mature gardens in a stunning setting, the rustic style villa is entered through the kitchen 'La Cocina', a room of magnificent proportions, heigh ceilings, wooden beams, breathtaking views, marvellous hand made furniture and so many secrets revealed. From there, it's through a small arch into the dining room, high ceilings and a view over the tropical garden & views beyond. A wood burning fire awaits in a central room for the coolest months. A spacious communal 'salon' or lounge with inbuilt Andaluz style furniture (more seating than you need, lots of glorious light, dual aspect views of the mountains & the sea) and everything oozes charm & character.
Hidden away in an antique wooden cupboard, a widescreen television and a satellite decoder in the main lounge. Doors and furniture have been hand crafted from reclaimed wood, there are three double bedrooms, enough to sleep six adults (an additional reception room can potentially accomodate a children if required).
We think El Monte Bajo is little short of heaven on earth – never to be found in a holiday brochure – a little gem, a secret to return to over and over again. ( Guest reviews are at elmontebajo.com/reviews ).
As daylight fades, time to dine or share a cocktail on the patio or just laze around watching the fishing boats on the sea or the colour of the Sierra Almijara mountains change hue. And then, after dark, there's romance, subdued lighting thought the kitchen into the dining room and the tropical garden transforms. This is the definition of 'tranquilidad' or 'la pura vida'. Even the small urban centre of Nerja, a few kilometres away can seem like the metropolitan hustle & bustle, a step too far. Now, can you find the energy to leave the tropical garden even for a few hours ? See the videos & reviews at elmontebajo.com

Waow! What a paradise!
We have now stayed at Monte Bajo for two weeks - a family of six adults and two young children - and the property was perfect.
The house is a gem with lots of interior details eyes can enjoy, and the garden is a fairytail. Especially in the night when it's lit up by the coloured lights.
In addition you have all the scents & sounds. I'll never forget the evenings when the frogs started to chatter or sing or whatever they were doing - it was beautiful!
We were also accompanied by five kittens and their mum - cat food were found in the basement.
A big hug to Danny who is the perfect host: From the generous welcoming basket in the kitchen when we arrived, to all the help and good advice during the stay.
