    Description

    We are a retired english couple with a holiday home in Montefrio near Granada, Spain. Our house is a 150 year old farmhouse, set in olive groves with beautiful views, and situated at 900 metres above sea level, overlooking the Parapanda Mountain. Separate accommodation with own cooking facilities available, or we can provide a hot evening meal. We are walking distance from small town of Montefrio, a typical 'pueblo blanco' of Andalucia
