About this location
The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol provides everything for the perfect holiday - its own micro-climate, beaches, golf courses, night-life and shopping centres, but also plenty of culture, Spanish traditions and interesting places to visit - all within driving distance from Monda.
Ronda has a famous gorge and arguably the oldest bullring in Spain, only an hour away.
Marbella - El Casco Antiguo (the old town) with the Orange Square in the centre is the main resort for shopping and nightlife along with Puerto Banus, famous for shops & nightlife set around the marina is only 20 mins away.
A little further afield, but worth the journey are Cordoba with its mosque (2hrs), Granada with the famous Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens (1h45m), Seville with cathedral and La Giralda (golden tower) (2h30m).
For walkers, climbers and picnics, there is El Chorro gorge and the lakes, a narrow gorge cut into the rock by the Guadalhorce river at the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty with wooded ravines and unusual rock formations and an impressive network of lakes.
An hour away is the village of Antequera, a market town renowned for its speciality products of olive oil, "polvorones' (almond sweets), and 'molletes' (special bread rolls). Nearby are prehistoric dolmens and the flamingo breeding lake of Laguna Fuente de Piedra.
Monda is a typical Spanish pueblo white village situated in a nature reserve. There are several tapas bars, restaurants and village squares which host various festivities throughout the year. The feria is in August when all the women and children dress up in their flamenco dresses and dance in the square and in the evening a stage is set up and a band plays all night.
In March there is a Dia de la Sopa Mondena (Day of Monda Soup) where soup is prepared for the whole village.
If you are lucky enough to be here in September, the neighbouring village of Guaro has a candlelit festival called Luna Mora (Moroccan Moon) where for two weekends the whole village is lit by thousands of candles and there is an outside market selling Moroccan food and jewellery etc.
Monda has its own castle (now a hotel) dating back to the 10th century and also a 200 year old olive mill and a cheese factory producing goats cheese.
There is also a small market on Tuesday.
Monda has plenty of shops for your everyday needs - supermarkets, chemist, bakery, butcher, banks, bars and restaurants.

"Lovely well appointed villa in an iddylic rural location."
The villa is situated in a scenic rural location a few minutes from the main road & nearby pretty village. The last few hundred yards of road being unmade but easy to navigate & very quiet. The villa was comfortable, well equipped and very clean which helped to make our stay very enjoyable. Being on a small hillside, the outside space is split into two levels. The upper level being the villa, spacious terrace with bbq & pool area. This proved to be an excellent place to spend time in the sun swimming in the good sized pool, eating al fresco & enjoying the views of the surrounding hills. Often accompanied by the distant sound of various farm animals. The lower area is also spacious with a selection of trees & shrubs. There is also plenty of room for parking. The fact that the villa is located within its own gated & fenced grounds made it feel very secure.
Further afield (about 10 minutes drive) is the small town of Coin where we found a good selection of shops, restaurants & supermarkets.
Both Hetty & her local representatives were a pleasure to deal with. We can hardly wait to return.
