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.

Gorgeous property, well located, well specced and with bags of character.

4 of 5
Sitting on the lovely terrace at night with a G&T was so relaxing and it became a real effort to go out! The view across to the fields opposite filled our evenings. Some really nice villages nearby with great food (Grazalema and Zahara spring to mind). Thoroughly recommend it and hope to return sometime.

Great stay in Cuevas Del Becerro

5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying in the Villa, lots of space, with everything we needed. The raised terrace was great to have breakfast on, especially in the full sun in the morning. We used the BBQ, bought the steaks from the local butcher, they were great. Great place to chill out, the village was great. It's true, no-one speaks English, but that's part of the charm of the village. I enjoyed trying out my Spanish, limited as it is, especially in Bar Pescaero, where we ate tapas on many occasion. I had many a conversation with the owner, and one of their customers whose sister lived in Edinburgh, and who insisted on practicing his English to me, whilst I practiced my Spanish on him! Their patatas bravas is the best I have every tasted. Loved the way the village closed the Main Street for the restaurants at the weekends, though when you arrive at 11pm at night it does make it interesting as to how you get to the villa! Places to visit:- We went to Seville for the day, don't take your car all the way into the city, we drove to the metro station at Olivar de Quintos, left the car there and took metro in. Ronda - just stunning and only 20 minutes away. That is a must. We also went to San Pedro beach at Marbella. Stunning scenery on drive. Finally a thank you to Linda for her communications, friendly and always helpful, and Chris for running through all the stuff in the villa and how it all worked. Great holiday!
