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.

Everything else about the rest of our holiday was great also but i'll spare the details as it's all been said previously. No doubting the quality of this acommodation, just book it!

We all loved the villa. The fantastic views, the space (it comfortably sleeps ten) , the pool, the high ceilings and big windows. We had worried about the building work taking place nearby but this caused no inconvenience as the project is well advanced. We had also worried about the remoteness of Monte Mayor. Once we got use to the drive we actually appreciated being away from everything and even began to think about the benefits of buying or building a villa on or near Monte Mayor. The villa is close to Benehavis, Club Marbella (the nicest golf course I've ever played on) and about 20-25 mins from Puerto Banus. Marbella is a little further. This villa is really as as good as it looks on the website. Spread over ten people the price is not too bad. Don't hesitate book it now.
