Casa Rita is a charming restored village house located in the original Moorish upper part of Montejaque, 20 minutes from Ronda in the Grazalema Natural Park. Officially registered with the authorities as a vivienda rural, Casa Rita has to meet strict standards of comfort and safety and is regularly inspected. Casa Rita has been imaginatively designed to get the best out of the surrounding area and the wonderful climate. The large roof terrace affords a 360° view of this most beautiful of the pueblos blancos of the Serranía de Ronda, as well as the emblematic mountains Hacho and Tavizna and the surrounding valley and olive and citrus groves. As a result of its position, Casa Rita is one of the few houses in the village that enjoys sunshine all day long, all year round. If the sun is too hot it has shady areas too. The municipal swimming pool is 20 minutes walk away or 5 minutes by car.

About Rita Koehler
I came to Montejaque on holiday and on the second day I bought an old house which I had renovated and christened Casa Rita. I loved holidaying here so much that I moved to the village permanently. When I re-married we moved to a different house in the area. This means that my lovely home is now available to rent to discerning people who will appreciate all that Montejaque, its people and the surrounding the area have to offer.
Why Rita Koehler chose Montejaque
I moved to Montejaque because I fell in love with the scenery, the weather and the local people. The house I bought and had renovated is one of the best of the traditional houses in the village. I love it. The views from the roof terrace are unbeatable and the house has sun all year round. Life in the village is very calm and stress-free. I met a new man three years ago and after marrying we moved to a different house in the area. This means that we are able to rent Casa Rita to guests who will appreciate the same things as we do: a simple, stress-free life in beautiful surroundings with lovely people and fantastic weather for most of the year. Nearby Ronda, the main town in the area, offers stunning scenery and a fascinating history and culture, plus most amenities.
What makes this House unique
Casa Rita is simply stunning. Perched high in the village, the views are to die for. The large roof terrace offers 360o views and is one of the few houses in the village to enjoy sun all day long and all year round. With beamed ceilings throughout, Casa Rita has a traditional feel. As it was my home for four years it offers more comfort and style than most rental properties and a full inventory. With a great selection of local shops, bars and restaurants, a local pool, a gym, fantastic walking routes and near to Ronda, what else do you need? Casa Rita offers everything for a care-free holiday.

Casa Rita is a great home from home when visiting wonderful Montejaque.
Not the best weather for our latest trip to Casa Rita but the layout of the house gives everybody plenty of space even when you are kept indoors. Paul and Rita made booking and arrival easy as usual. The local walking and wildlife were excellent as always and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be back.
Lovely village property
Lovely rural village and setting. The house was very well equipped. You do need to be aware though that parking is not the easiest (though there were some roadworks being done that made it a little more awkward for us) and the walk up to the property will get you fit by the end of the week! Paul was very welcoming and helpful.
Casa Rita, Montejaque
Casa Rita is a truly lovely house, tardis-like and fascinating. There are cool lounges, plenty of sharing space and three terraces to choose from to escape from or worship the sun. The house is generous, the owners have added many home comforts and thoughtful extras like books, games, dvd's and best of all, basic fridge provisions including complimentary wine! The kitchen facilities are excellent again with basic provisions available to visitors. The bathrooms are spacious and luxurious and from floor tiles to cushions, décor is cosy and tasteful. The village is a delight, with friendly locals and a selection of small supermarkets and a wonderful bakery. Time here is peaceful but with plenty to do not far away.
Thank you very much for your kind comments. We`re glad you enjoyed your stay.
We absolutely loved this beautiful villa and the stunning village of montejaque. The villa was fully equipped with everything you need and the owner Paul met us in the village despite our very late arrival, giving us a quick tour, arranging for a meal in one of the local bars and making sure we settled into the villa for our stay. A week wasn't long enough and we'd be more than happy to return for another, can't recommend highly enough.

Inmitten der Bergwelt im Park Grazalema genießt man die Abgeschiedenheit dieses einmaligen Hauses.
Mit den grandiosen Blick, den man von der oberen Terrasse aus hat, kann man so richtig die Seele baumeln lassen.
Das sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtete Haus hat alles was man für einen Urlaub braucht. Wir haben die eine Woche sehr genossen!

Wir hatten eine schöne Urlaubswoche in dem Ferienhaus. Es war alles notwendige vorhanden. Vor allem war ausreichend Platz für Eltern und Kinder.
Diese Unterkunft ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen.
