About this location

The Andalucia region

Monda is situated only 20 min from Marbella, Costa del Sol and its numerous well-kept beaches many of which have been awarded the European Blue Flag.

The Costa del Sol stretches along just over 150 kilometres of Málaga province and is one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations. The mild climate makes the Costa Del Sol a very sort after location all year round.

Monda its self is situated in the natural park of the Sierra Las Nieves. Therefore attracting many visitors who enjoy Bird watching, Hiking, Mountain Biking and over all "Seeing Nature at its Best".

Gourmets and epicures cannot fail to be delighted with the wide range of restaurants and culinary styles Monda has to offer. From tapas with the locals to a gourmet dinner at the Castle, Monda has it all!!

There are plenty of things to enjoy and you dont have to travel to far.

The nearest Golf Course is 20 minutes away.

The old town of Marbella is well worth a visit, its old town wall and little sleepy backstreets, a visit to Orange Square is a must.

Other Interesting places to visit from Monda are El Chorro and the Lakes, Ronda with the oldest bullring in Spain and El Tajo across the gorge. Cordoba with its Mosque, Sevilla with its famous cathedral and La Giralda the golden tower and Granada with the famous Alhambra Palace and splendid General life Gardens and Gibraltar only 50 minutes away.

Only a 20 min drive from Monda is Istan with its Lake Concepcion which is now a reservoir supplying the coast with its water supply. Another 10 minutes further on you can be in Puerto Banus where the world-famous marina is located with its amazing yachts and night-life. Here you can do everything from people watch to even hiring a Sunseeker yacht for the day!

It’s hard to believe this small Spanish Pueblo is only 20 min from the coast.

Staying in Monda you get the best of both worlds!


Monda Pueblo

Monda is a typical Spanish Village situated in the mountains of the Las Nieves. If you want to experience the true feel of Spanish life you will find it in Monda. The landscape and scenery is always inspiring and never boring.

You have entire life cycles taking place in front of you. Small children playing, senoritas gossiping at their front doors or shouting from their blooming balconies.

You can see local businessmen having important meetings alongside the good old boys of the pueblo having their daily game of dominoes and sipping the local “fino”.

You still see old farmers crossing the square with their loaded donkeys on their way to their olive and orange groves.

The streets between the old white houses are narrow, curved and more designed for humans and donkeys than cars.

The design of the houses are typically Spanish with there beautiful flower boxes cascading over the windowsills.

Monda has several small squares. The Church Square is the main one dominated by the old church since 1505. It is surrounded by orange trees, and is the central hub for local Fiesta’s of which there are many.

Monda has many Bars & Restaurants and Discos. If you enjoy good food you can get an excellent meal for a small amount of money or try one of the many Tapas for only 1 euro. Monda has plenty of shops, for your everyday needs.

Monda Castle

Situated high above Village, looking out from the Castle you can see Monda and the countryside around with the natural forest which covers a huge area all the way to Ronda 60 km away.

In the background you can see the Mediterranean Sea at Malaga and the snow covered top of the Sierra Nevada, a popular ski resort only 2 hours drive away.

The Oil Mill

The oldest oil mill is in the centre of town and is 200 years old. An amazing place to visit, the olive mill is powered by a steam machine heated by burning wood from old olive trees. The huge cone shaped granite stone that presses the olives for their juice is the same one that must have been used for generations. The farmers still come in from the countryside to sell their olives to the mill. They transport their olives in big canvas sacks, loaded on exhausted donkeys.

The Cheese Factory

The goat’s cheese produced at the old factory in Monda is very famous and eaten fresh on toasted bread with honey. The goats walk around in the mountains in huge numbers with bells around their necks followed by the goat man and his dog.

La Casita is such a peaceful place I wondered what was happening when I first met “The Goat Man” walking up the lane!
