Location Information: Montecorto, situated on the edge of the beautiful Grazalema National Park, is one of the ‘pueblos blancos’ (white villages) which are amongst the prettiest in Spain. The views are spectacular, and in cooler months the area has some of the best walking in Europe. Just a short drive away are the extraordinary Roman theatre and Pileta cave with some of Europe’s best cave paintings. Historic Ronda, one of Spain’s most spectacular towns, can be reached in 15 minutes and has palaces, art galleries and its famous gorge. To stay in this friendly village is to witness the real Spain, a world away from the crowds and commercialism of the “Costa.” The village has everything for your needs with bars (some of which serve reasonably priced tapas), two small general stores, two bread shops and a fish shop. For eating out there is a restaurant at the edge of the village. There is also a bank and a garage. For summer visits there is lovely swimming pool, just 3 minutes walk from the property. Other Activities: Village fiestas
If you are looking for a bird watching holiday you have chosen a fantastic area.
Andalucía is a birdwatcher’s paradise and attracts ornithologists throughout the year. The best time of the year, however, is during the spring, as this is when you can see many wintering species arriving for the summer months.
With forests, native pine woods, natural parks and rich, lush, green countryside spreading for miles on end, it’s hardly surprising that this region of Spain is a haven for wildlife and home to a huge variety of species of birds. You can find a host of birds from golden oriole, bee-eater, swift, house martin, green woodpecker, eagle, little owl, stone curlew to the great spotted cuckoo, plus many other species.
