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.


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

We want to share our orchard with you. Not only to prepare your meals using our home-grown products, but also for you to take home our fruits and vegetables (in season).


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 cozy ambience. This is why we leave the materials in sight (stone walls, wooden beams, craftswomen bars…) and all the furniture has been recovered by our family or bought at flea markets.

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 nap 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” (the way we call the sun in Spain) hiding among the silvery olive trees while you take a dip in the afternoon.

About Us

Having worked as a food, lifestyle and travel journalist for Condé Nast Traveler Spain for more than ten years, my dream has always been to have my own place to host travelers. This is the reason why I decided to convert this family villa into a small guest house: simple, natural and authentic.

Guest Reviews

We have spent a lovely weekend and all of us have much enjoyed the stay. Peaceful and genuine. A perfect location surrounded by olive trees, with cozy and comfortable rooms and a friendly atmosphere. A piece of paradise to enjoy with family and/or friends! Arantxa is the perfect host! Hope to see you back soon! Loreto, Jaime and Lucía

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!

Ideal to enjoy a relaxing holiday with the plus that you are 5 minutes away by car from Úbeda and Baeza, two of the most beautiful towns in the country. We will came back. Definitely.
