The house is just a small part of the entire property, where the river Guadalquivir passes through and which is spread across 12 hectares, and completely covered with fruit, palm and olive trees, and “tarays”.

Andalucía has its own character, even within Spain itself. But maybe, between the eight provinces that form Andalucia, Jaén is the most unknown and unexplored one.

Just 300 kilometers from Madrid, 100 from both, Granada and Córdoba, landscapes are the endless silvery olive tree “seas”. Natural environments
such as Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas; Renaissance World Heritage cities like Úbeda and Baeza; roman ruins, like Cástulo; medieval
fortresses, arabic baths.., and, of course, a gastronomy marked by extra virgin olive oil (the province is the world's largest producer in the
world)… This is only a little starter of what you will find if you decide to visit us.

Silver, gray and green

You can take a walk along the river Guadalquivir; along the way you will see varieties of the olive trees and specimens from different parts of the world; you’ll find benches where you can relax or hammocks tied to trees to take a nap during the summer evenings.

We want to share our orchard with you. Not only to prepare your meals using our home-grown produce, but also for you to take home our fruits and vegetables that taste so real (in season). At the entrance of the house you will find a steelyard, bags and a price list. Just go and collect them, weigh, package and calculate the price of your purchase. Everything will go to a foundation.

Personal touches

We want to make you feel like where we are, and this is why the decoration of Cortijo Montano is so Andalusian, with some contemporary and exotic touches and memories of our trips all over the world. Our goal is to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. This is the reason why we leave the materials in sight (stone walls, wooden beams, craftswomen bars…) and all the furniture is recovered by our family or bought at local markets here.

Four seasons, one place

In fall and winter, our living rooms with fireplace invite you to hide under a blanket, chat with friends or play board games. In spring, there is nothing like a stroll among the blossoming almond trees, pomegranates and quinces or bike rides. Summer is time to live, to enjoy a barbecue on the terrace or read a great novel. Do not miss the view of “Lorenzo” (how we call the sun in Spain) hiding among the silvery olive trees while you take a dip in the afternoon.

About Us

Who are we? Having working for years as a food, lifestyle and travel journalist for international media such as Condé Nast Traveler, L’ Officiel voyage or Tapas magazine, my dream has always been to have my own place to host travellers: simple, natural and full of charms with inspiration from other destinations I have visited over the years but in my home, this is why I decided to convert this family villa into a small guest house…

Cortijo Montano is a very special place with all the charm of a typical andalusian cortijo. We liked specially the rustic vintage style of the rooms and the quiet beauty of the surroundings. It's in the middle of an olive grove, so you can have your breakfast in the garden and the only thing that you see in the horizon is trees and blue sky.

Thank you Arancha for such a lovely weekend! Cortijo Montano is a unique typical country house in the middle of a sea of olive trees. It is perfect for a relaxing stay either with friends, family or both. The house is really nice, clean and comfortable. I hope we will be back soon!
