Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Benaojan, Spain your home away from home

Benaojan is a mountain village in Andalusia with Moorish origins. It has narrow shady streets which all converge on the central plaza and the Church of our Lady of Rosario which has a pretty octagonal belltower. Although the Tajo del Castillejo suggests a castle, there is nothing left of any fortification now.

The surrounding area is ideal for scenic hillwalking, mountain biking and nature spotting. The beaches are a 90-minute drive from Benaojan holiday rentals and offer sunbathing, swimming, baoting and a host of watersports on the beautiful Costa del Sol.

Stunning and peaceful location

5 of 5
We've just had 10 days in this lovely cottage in the peaceful village of Montejaque. The location is superb with a glimpse of the impressive cliff face visible from the patio. It's a short walk to reach a track giving glorious vista's over the mountainous scenery. If you're into wildlife, the birding is great, seeing Griffon vultures and Booted Eagle without even moving from the patio. We bought a book called Walking the Mountains of Ronda and Grazelema by Guy Hunter-Watts and published by Cicerone. This gave excellent guided walks from Montejaque and other beautiful villages just a short drive away. Well worth the £9.95 price tag. The cottage was ideal. It was very well equipped and attractively furnished. Apart from the bedroom there is a lovely sitting room that has patio doors leading on to the patio. Being late March the evenings were chilly and the woodburner was perfect for providing extra cosiness. Plenty of fuel was provided. A couple of good restaurants in the village meant no evening driving unless you wanted to travel further afield. The cottage is nicely furnished with lots of lamps to give subtle lighting and there is absolutely no traffic noise as cars seldom venture up the steep tracks. Although it was no problem to us, the cottage is situated up a steep, narrow road leading up from the attractive square. The car is left a good couple of hundred metres away and you need to walk. It is very atmospheric though and quite a change from most British holiday locations. The owners were very helpful and wanted to make sure we had a good stay and were more than willing to answer any questions. A great holiday and a highly recommended location for people who'd like an active break in a beautiful, friendly and peaceful village.

Leo is one of the nicest men you will ever meet. The area is so tranquil and relaxing and the Cortijo was fantastic, there is lots to do around the area and plenty of outstanding scenery, all of the doggies were lovely and very friendly, we stayed in February and lit the wood burner at night which made it so cozy, we wont hesitate to return.
