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.

Joanna and her dog Ozo were friendly hosts. The garden is a generous with mandarin trees and other fruits. Ozo played with our youngest dog and there where plenty of space to go around with the dogs. The casa was wonderful with very equipment kitchen and a washing & drying machine. There are two bathrooms, which is very comfortable, but the water pressure was a little weak. There is no curtains or shutters in downstairs, which bothers us a bit, because we are use to privacy. Wifi worked well enough and that was very important to us, because we teleworking. That period were very cold (in particular nights and one day there where even 10 cm snowing). We bought a pellets heating (4 €/15 kg, we used about 20 sacks) and gas to warm water (gas is quite cheap in Spain) and also we paid the extra money (150 €) for electricity. The rural village is a beautiful with very friendly people and there are also some shops where you get some basic food items. It was a bit hard to drive around, because the roads are narrow and curved. We have a 5,4 m long van and it takes us about 1 hour to drive for the first 30 km in any direction. The vehicle is must.

                                                                                                      Jenny and Mark's house is lovely. It exceeded all expectations. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and has many personal touches which make it feel like a loved home rather than a rented house. The decor was very tasteful and the Moroccan touches lovely. The views from the 2 terraces are spectacular and the top floor, the living room, is wonderfully light; we ate all our meals here. The kitchen is really well equipped and is another lovely, spacious room. The large shower on the ground floor is just great! One thing to note: This house might not be suitable for very young children as it is spread over 4 floors and the stairs between floors have no handrails - you soon get used to the open stairs though. The house is well located in Gaucin, a large village with numerous bars offering a good choice of outdoor eating. There are some lovely walks from the village and the surrounding area is mountainous and spectacular. We would love to return in late spring when the flowers will be at their best; this is a good area to be based if you are a keen bird watcher. Jenny was very easy to communicate with and answered all our questions promptly. Brett met us when we arrived and was really helpful, as well as a font of local knowledge. We couldn't recommend this property more highly. It was a privilege to stay here and we look forward to returning. Pam Bury
