Este pequeño espacio se sitúa en el noreste de la provincia de Badajoz entre los ríos Guadiana y Zújar, en la comarca de Los Montes como estribaciones de los cercanos Montes de Toledo. Esta sierra se sitúa próxima al municipio de Garbayuela, cerca del límite provincial entre Ciudad Real y Badajoz, al sur de la Sierra de los Golondrinos, estando su delimitada al este por el río Guadalemar que la rodea y al oeste, por el Puerto de los Carneros. Algunos de los parajes más destacables son: la cuerda de la Sierra de los Villares, Umbría del Puerto del Zamorano, pinares del Valle de Doña Emilia y Peñón del Castillo en la Sierra de Mirabueno. Este espacio destaca también por acoger diversas especies de orquídeas en sus frescas umbrías.Entre los habitats destacan los brezales, los Robledales ibéricos de Quercus faginea y Quercus canariensis y los Roquedos silíceos.Esta situada muy próxima a los espacios Red Natura 2000 LIC "Rio Guadalemar" y ZEPA-LIC "La Serena".

4.2 Quality and importance

Un total de 11 elementos referidos en la Directiva se encuentran representados en dicho enclave. De ellos, 9 son hábitats y 2 se corresponden con taxones del Anexo II (Mauremys leprosa y Euphydryas aurinia). Los hábitats naturales inventaridados aparecen principalmente vinculados a los roquedos en la cuerda de la sierra, donde no fue posible la repoblación forestal, así como en las zonas de transición con los pinares (umbría) y olivares (solana) que ocupan las laderas de la Sierra de los Villares.En cuanto a los taxones incluidos en otras especies de interés, se encuentran seis taxones de reptiles, cinco de anfibios, cinco de plantas y el invertebrado y el invertebrado Euphydryas desfontanii incluidos en Catálogo Regional de Especies Protegidas.
