The Andalucia / Malaga Province region
Only 45 minutes inland but a world away from the Costa del Sol, Ronda is set on the edge of two mountain Natural Parks and is surrounded by many white mountain villages and towns. The Atlantic coast near Cadiz is around 1.5 hours drive and the historic city of Jerez 1.25 hours.
The city of Ronda is world famous for it’s bullring and Tajo (100m deep gorge ) which separates the old and new towns. Wander the old streets taking in the atmosphere and visit some of the old buildings, museums and Roman baths. There are many tapas bars and restaurants to enjoy a beer whist people watching. In the new town take a stroll up the pedestrianised shopping street and visit some of the many independent shops. Beyond Ronda lie olive groves and vineyards making boutique wines.
The area offers many opportunities to sight see, walk, hike the mountain trails, bird watch or just enjoy a long lingering lunch at one of the many rural restaurants.
The Ronda / Montejaque area
Montejaque couldn’t be in a better location if you’re wanting to escape the Costa crowds. It’s a charming, traditional Andalucian ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village) with some of the friendliest locals you’ll find anywhere in Spain. locally many leisure pursuits are available; walking, climbing, tennis, horse riding, bird watching. Set in the stunning mountainous scenery of the Serrania de Ronda and Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park with enormous potential for walking and a whole range of adventurous (and not so adventurous) outdoor activities. There are now four via Ferrata's in the vicinity for those with a head for heights.
The nearby Caves at Piletta, where you can see early pre-historic cave paintings, are an absolute must – but don’t expect a slick guided tour and stylish gift shop. It’s much better than that! The village itself is a maze of narrow streets and there’s more than a few tapas bars and cafes to explore as well as some restaurants, this is a quiet, rural place – fast becoming a fashionable and slightly bohemian retreat for art and stressed Spaniards from the big cities. You won’t find too many English speaking people here, but the locals are always happy to welcome outsiders.
You’ll probably spend quite some time in nearby Ronda. Although a busy tourist centre (and for good reason) Ronda is a wonderful place. Let it get under your skin. Here you’ll find restaurants aplenty, one of the oldest bull rings in Spain (well worth a look, even if you hate the idea of the ‘sport’) and Ronda’s main attraction, El Tajo – the enormous, stunning gorge. Linger on the Puente Neuvo and dare to look down into the gorge’s depths (trying not to think about the poor people who used to be thrown to their doom from where you’re stood). If you can drag yourself away from the snail’s pace village life of Montejaque or the buzzing atmosphere of Ronda, why not go on a day trip further afield, the magnificent cities of Granada or Seville. In fact, if you’ve got time, you could do both – arguably two of the most wonderful cities in Spain.

We spent 2 weeks in May at Casa Limon. It is a comfortable, well equipped home in a small friendly complex. Communication with the owner Martyn was excellent. His travel guidebooks & folder with information about the local area were very helpful. We heard the weather in Spain this year has been unusual & we had weather that was hot, cold, wet, and dry but that was not a problem if you are prepared for anything.
We quickly felt at home in this small village & were happy our visit was at a time of one of the major village celebrations. Montejaque is a good base for visits to other white villages. We were pleased how close it was to Ronda, with an easy drive on a good road. If you have visited the big tourist areas of southern Spain this is a great place to relax & see the real Spain.

The service from Martyn the owner was fantastic. We felt incredibly well looked after with lots of info and guidelines way over and above what you might expect, to help us get the most out of the area and our stay. His communications before our trip helped us to feel really confident about our booking, and we were not let down.
The house itself is lovely, and has lots of extras you might not expect (great range of DVDs and local travel guides), and was very comfortable, in a friendly and peaceful development.
The location was great, right in the heart of the town, and a good base for exploring further afield. We would definitely recommend Casa de Limon.
Glad you found the information helpful and had a good holiday. Thank you for your review. Martyn

We travelled here in October for some autumn sun and were not disappointed! However even if the weather hadn't been good it would still have been a brilliant holiday. The house was lovely and had all the facilities for a comfortable stay, even a wide selection of DVDs for a rainy day if that ever did happen. The amount of information on the surrounding area is very useful as there are guidebooks and a information folder in the house. The kitchen was well equipped. It is set in a small complex with a pool, very quiet and peaceful. Having a glass of wine sat on the balcony in the balmy evenings was perfect. There is also a terrace with outdoor furniture.
There are lots of shops and bars in the village and it is within easy distance of Ronda, a larger town in a magnificent setting. Some day trips that we did were: Marbella, Seville, El Chorro gorge and a swimming/kayaking lake near there and my favourite, a small nearby village called Grazalema where we did a fantastic walk to a mirador (the name escapes me but I think it was El Boyers). I hadn't realised how much there was to do in the area and wish we had booked to stay longer! Definitely would recommend this house and the area!
Thank you for your review. Glad you had a great time and liked our corner of Andalucia. Martyn
