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 property itself was spacious and clean and sits above the town providing stunning views. Everything you need is provided for including WiFi and TV. Carolyn and Kevin were superb hosts and we shared a few beers together. We will definitely return to Montejaque and look forward to catching up with Carolyn and Ken.

Gaucin is a small friendly village with many bars that offer food and several restaurants that were better than average – we would single out particularly Platero & Co in this respect, but to give perspective time did not allow us to sample all of the 10? village restaurants. We only stayed a week in Casa Muneca and can truly say that we wished we had spent longer there. Our initial plans for exploring the area and long walks were with a couple of days abandoned as we settled in to the most relaxing and fulfilling holiday we have had for ages. We were undoubtedly seduced by the incredible views from the terrace of the house where we spent many hours relaxing and chilling out, sometimes sipping wine and watching eagles circling overhead and occasional seeing a small mule train clip clopping past the front door. The house was all you could ask for and more and we were left wondering how anyone could ever rent out such an idyll to strangers. If we had to sum up in a single word it would be ‘perfect’.
