One-Off Feature

One of Andalucia’'s most spectacular rental properties, sculpted around a rocky crag in a forest of the Grazalema park. The views are inspirational, the infinity pool amazing, and the house has been decorated with great style. You’ll find no more romantic a hideaway: this is a place to let your spirit soar.

General Info

Dar Hajra is hidden away in a stand of pine forest just above the undiscovered ‘white village’ of Montecorto, 15 kilometers to west of Ronda. From the house’s rocky perch you are treated to a stunning, wrap-around view of the peaks of the Grazalema National Park. You reach the house via a track which arcs up through the forest to a mountain spring. From here a path flanked by rosemary, lavendar, honeysuckle and mint climbs up to the house’s main entrance. It looks deceptively traditional from the outside. Once you pass through the door you’ll probably simply gasp ‘wow!’ This is a house where fantasy came first in the design brief. The house has a huge, superbly equipped kitchen, wifi internet (with a desk top iMac if you travel without your laptop) and one of the most beautiful plunge pools in Andalucía. One Off Places guests also receive a welcome bottle of cava + a copy of 'Walking in Andalucía' - written by the property owner.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Ronda is just a quarter of an hour from the village and is famous for the extraordinary gorge that cuts between the old and new quarters. There are masses of excellent restaurants close by including the Michelin-starred ‘Tragabuches’ in Ronda. The local villages have friendly tapas bars where you can try the local wine. Montecorto is a quiet village with two restaurants, a number of bars, several small shops and very friendly locals. Wander down from Dar Hajra through narrow streets to buy fresh bread, fish and vegetables then stop at Pepe’s huerta on the way back up to buy fresh, seasonal organic fruit and veggies. The Grazalema Park begins, literally, on Dar Hajra’s doorstep. This is one of the most beautiful tracks of mountain in Europe, with an astonishingly diverse flora and fauna. There are a dozen vineyards all within easy driving distance of the house. Seville, Granada, Jerez and the beaches of the Costa del Sol are all within easy reach.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
The kitchen/diner is as spectacular as the rest of the house with a large stainless steel fridge, black slate floors and everything you need to self-cater in style. There are masses of herbs and spices. A good bottle of red wine will be awaiting you as well as a bottle of cava in the fridge. There are two bedrooms. The larger has a king size double bed and walk-in wardrobe. At the very top of the house, reached by a staircase that winds between the rocks, is a second bedroom with access to a large roof terrace. All bedding is of the best quality. The bathroom is another flight of fantasy with large round tub sculpted between the rocks and an enormous shower rose. Run a bath, pour in the essential oils, light a candle: there’s plenty of room for two. NB Special offer between Sept 2011 & March 2012.

Exterior Details
At one end of this villa in Andalucia is the infinity edge plunge pool whose waters seem to merge with the sky. Just beyond the pool a path winds up to a spectacular solarium. Each window of the house brings in a different part of the stunning view southwards, including those of the study.

Further Details
The mountainside has been wrapped into the fabric of the building and the rock strata add a stunning decorative element - Dar Hajra means ‘House of the Rocks’ in arabic. A pyramidal atrium is the visual axis around which the open-plan lounge/diner/kitchen turns: sunlight floods in during the day and you look up to starry skies at night. Three huge drop-arched windows lead out to the terrace. The villa contains hundreds of reference books including those written by Dar Hajra’s owner. There’s a huge collection of Cds (flamenco, blues, jazz, classical, world, folk) and DVDs, as well as a computer with free 24 hour Internet connection and satellite TV. What a change from a resort style villa in Andalucia!

Conditions of Rental
The cost of weekly rental includes 1 hour of daily cleaning help, if you would like it. Rentals run from Saturday to Saturday. There is a 10% reduction on weekly rentals for any stay of 2 or more weeks.
