Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Montejaque, Spain your home away from home

Montejaque is a pueblo blanco of the highest quality in the undulating landscapes of the Ronda countryside in Andalucia. Many of the rural villas in Montejaque have been luxuriously renovated, making Montejaque a blissfully comfortable place to relax in the hills, overlooking the Guadiaro Valley and parts of the Grazalema National Park.

Things to do in Montejaque, Spain

Montejaque’s position at the foot of the Sierras of Montalate and Juan Diego make it the perfect base for walking holidays in Spain. There are many spots of unimaginable beauty tucked away in the landscapes of the sierras, accessible only on foot, mountain bike or horse back. The walking and riding in Montejaque can be quite strenuous, as the best routes all lead into the hills on onto the raised plateau above Montejaque.

There is plenty to see and do within the village itself too. The town is a maze of narrow streets, lined by delightful whitewashed villas, and opening out into glorious little squares where the large leaves of ancient trees shade locals from the heat of the midday sun. There are clear influences from Gothic and Arabic eras, all with an Andalucian twist.

The massive Hundidero-Gato cave system is a natural marvel, and one which can be reached on foot without the help of local guides. However, if you would like to explore the cave system itself, you should only enter the cave with the aid and knowledge of experienced potholers.

The annual fair in Montejaque falls between 12th and 15th May each year. The festival is great fun, and although it officially starts at midday, it is not until the Procession of the Virgin Mary starts at 8pm that the festival really starts. The large fairground stays open until late into the evening, with music, dancing and events lasting long into the night.

Places to visit on holiday in Montejaque, Spain

The nearby town of Ronda is a must visit location from a holiday rental property in Montejaque. The massive El Tajo Gorge is massively impressive, and the town’s eclectic mix of Roman, Arabic, Gothic and Baroque styles makes it a wonderful place to simply sit and watch the world slowly drifting by.

Absolutely Perfect

5 of 5
I'll keep this short as i don't want to rehash what all the other reviews have said, my wife and i have stayed in a lot of holiday properties and without doubt this is the best equipped, most comfortable we have ever stayed in, the house wants for nothing and we had a fantastic stay there, everything from payments, enquiries, administration to arrival, welcome pack and local management was spot on. 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!

Excellent location for exploring the region, with terrific views in a great setting.

Spent 5 days in Casa de Limon late August. The house is in a small gated complex with a communal pool area. Plenty of on street parking close to the property. The house is dark - as are most Spanish properties to provide protection from the heat of the day. The upstairs balcony off the double bedroom is a sunny space to have breakfast and the downstairs seating and BBQ area gets the afternoon and evening sun. The house is well equipped and comfortable. The lounge area may prove a bit cosy for four adults, though the outside space compensates for this. The equipment for the outside space is excellent with a range of chairs and loungers in the storage area. The pool proved a godsend for cooling off and it was possible to find some shade if required. The pool area never felt crowded although not all properties were occupied during our stay. The air conditioning is efficient (and necessary) - we never did make use of the wood burner so cannot comment! Lots of interest in the local area and there is a lot of very useful information in the Casa provided by the owner. We had done some research before travelling but found the provided local knowledge to be invaluable. Montejaque itself is a manageable size with a couple of supermarkets and an excellent little Panaderia barely 5 minutes from the door. Several restaurants in the village too. We had an excellent tapas meal in the village square, La Cuesta is a nice space but the food was nothing special. As for getting about we can recommend Acinipo roman remains (no guide, no signage, no info but FREE). coupled with Setenil a village built into the rocks (park out of town and walk in, less stressful). Ronda is worth a visit - we drove in and parked underground not too expensive. We did one of the suggested White Villages tours - Owner's advice about Ubrique is spot on - if leather is your thing then go there otherwise there are better options, Benaocaz, El Bosque, Prado Del Rey, and (certainly) Grazalema which lends its' name to the National Park. The 'Little Beach In The Hills' is well worth the effort at Arroyomolinos. The last couple of km need you to hold your nerve and follow the signs, entry was 3.50 Euros each. (Take the beach chairs from the Casa). Plenty of shade and plenty of picnic benches, a small cafe bar and toilets. Good for swimming but ideal for young children too. Happy to recommend this for a couple or a family with young children
