Dos Robles is a homely,family cortijo set in its own secure and private grounds, easily accessible and only 4km from the beautiful and historic town of montefrio. The entrance opens into a lounge tv room with log burning stove. The kitchen is equipped with hob, oven, coffee maker, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave and tostada machine. Off the kitchen there is a dining room with seating for 6 persons with views through french doors towards the terrace and beyond. Off the living area is the master bedroom complete with en-suite, a twin bedded room and along a short corridor is the newly refurbished bathroom and the second double bedroom. Keen birdwatchers will be delighted with the visiting swifts and swallows swooping down for a drink at the pool in late afternoon and the joyful sound of the "hoop-hoop" bird. Stargazers will be enthralled at the clear night sky with little ambient light to spoil the view. Hill walkers can walk up behind the cortijo to the "penas", a rugged escarpment with stunning views of the valley floor, or for the more adventurous climb Parapanda.

About V Flett
Vic, Joan from Scotland, bought Dos Robles in early 2007 after a lengthy search for an ideal location which enjoys great views, privacy and yet close to Montefrio. Our long time friend Alan (also a Scot) has lived with his wife Nora in Montefrio for over 10 years and is responsible for us deciding to buy here. The town of Montefrio is a lovely working country town with loads of character. Churches, ruins, olive groves, bars and restaurants etc all worth exploring and give you a true taste of the Real Rural Spain.
V Flett purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why V Flett chose Montefrío
We love this area as it manages to maintain its own independence and traditional values. Far removed from the hustle and bustle on the coast. Yet only a 5 min drive into town. Definitely no Timeshare Touts here! THE population of around 4000 are largely dependent on the olive harvest and tourism, you need to at least try to "hablar Español" (they will really appreciate it) yet we are less than an hours drive to the cosmopolitan delights of Granada, with the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada mountains nearby.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
If you want to experience the real Spain then look no further. Perfect tapas all made from locally harvested olive oil, ham and cheese make this an ideal setting with stunning views(depending on which bar you have settled in) to sample the local fare at very reasonable cost. No inflated Costa prices either. The Spanish like to Fiesta and Fiesta they do well, for all ages and extended families alike can be seen enjoying the festivities until the wee wee hours
Pool / Spa
Beautiful villa in fantastic location
We had an amazing stay at the villa! The villa was comfortable and the pool perfect for a cooling dip in the heat of summer. We were met by Marc at an agreed location to take us to the villa and he was incredibly helpful during our stay. We could not recommend this villa highly enough!
Lovely house in a beautiful location
We had a fantastic stay here! The house and pool are lovely in a beautiful location. There's no air conditioning but in spite of the hottest weather (it reached 43° one day) the house still remained a comfortable temperature with the fans provided. Marc who looks after the property met us in the nearest town (Montefrío), showed us the way to the house and was really helpful with recommendations of nice local places to eat. There's also lots of information provided about the local area at the house. We enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend this lovely house.
Thank you for your kind remarks and delighted you enjoyed your holiday.
Fabulous away from it all property
We had the pleasure of a three week stay in the beautifully finished and equipped country house. It was a get away from it all holiday and is ideal for people wanting to totally relax and unwind. The pool was a good size and very clean, and the views across the valley were stunning. At night you could sit on the swing with a glass of wine and look at the brilliant display of stars. Marc, who manages the property, could not do enough and was extremely helpful.
Delighted that you enjoyed Dos Robles as much as we do.
The privacy and peace is very relaxing.
Hope to see you back in the future.
Great location surrounded by olive groves, clean, tidy, amazing views, refreshing pool!
Great place to escape to. Plenty of space in the villa that stayed cool even in the baking heat of the mid August sun. Well equipped, and only a few km from the middle of lovely Montefrio.
Enjoyed day trips to explore the countryside taking in several superb castles, and a day trip to Granada and the Alhambra.
Car essential for this location.
The pool was excellent, cleaned and treated regularly, and used for many hours of every day.
Thoroughly enjoyed the visit....would return tomorrow!
