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 casita is charming and (as we stayed in the winter) no expense or facility was spared to ensure we were warm and comfortable. The area is a total relaxing pleasure so away from it all, yet close to all the amenities of Ronda. An excellent base to discover the wonderful villages and sites in the area, Zahara with its amazing view of the lake, Grazalema, Acinipo (roman ruins) , Senetil de la Bodegas (thanks for the recommendation Miki!) all within easy reach.

                                                                                                      This place is fantastic. The house is extremely beautiful and comfortable, with a ridiculous view of the Genal river valley, the coast (even Africa) and if you just want to stay there, it's a great place to do so. But you also have all the beautiful "pueblos blancos" to visit including awesome Gaucin, beautiful Ronda, and if you want to travel more, you can go to Sevilla, Granada, or Cordoba. You also have the beaches, if that's your thing. Great place to hike and bike in the mountains too. A word apart for Diego and Ester, the couple that take care of the house. They are both wonderful people, and Ester is a great cook too. For a very reasonable price she can cook for your whole group, which makes the stay even more fun. Her lamb leg, roasted chicken and paella are outstanding. The owner Miren is also wonderful. My flight was delayed a whole day, so she went to pick up members of my family twice to the Granada airport for a very reasonable fee. We were there in Christmas-New Year. Weather was great. Sunny every day, and coming from Iowa, I didn't even wear a sweater most of the time. Locals wear coats since they are spoiled with all the warmth they have year-round, but it was really mild, even at night.

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
