“Spacious retreat away from it all” We loved our stay in Montejaque. The villa is enormous and comfortably fits two families of four. It is well equipped, and furnished in a simple and stylish way. Roz the owner was incredibly friendly and helpful, as was Isobel, her representative in the town. Montejaque itself seems a sleepy, quiet place and would be ideal if you want somewhere peaceful and non-touristy, with easy access to busier parts of Andalucia. Having a car is essential, as Montejaque is about 20 minutes drive from Ronda (you could get a cab to the train station down the valley at a push). We would recommend the following local activities: hiking from Montejaque, either towards Ronda or in the other direction, into the hills; a trip to the Caves of Pileta (completely uncommercialised, stunning, with drawings dating back more than 30,000 years); a drive to Zahara de la Sierra, with lunch at the amazing Al Lago and a climb up to the old Moorish castle perched at the top; and, if you're lucky enough to visit at Easter, viewing the incredible Semana Santa (Holy Week) processions.
Thank you, Roz!
We loved our stay at 'les tres Fuentes ' the villa is beautiful. The owners really have thought of everything, the views are are incredible around the villa, the pool spotless, we had 4 children in our group and they loved it. Montejaque is lovely, the locals were incredibly friendly, food very good in the square and unbelievably cheap!!!. Ronda is a short drive away and is quite possibly the most beautiful city we have ever been. A MUST SEE! We highly recommend this villa, we had a lovely relaxing chilled holiday....which was much needed, nothing was too much trouble and we can't wait to return . X …
A house in the middle of a glorious mountain scenery
What a rooftop view!!! What a nice house. Great hosts.
We arrived very late in the montejaque village due to the bombing of Brussels Airport a couple of days earlier but Carolyn and her husband waited for us at the square in the center of town to takes us up to their brilliant house in the hills of Montejaque. The next day they advised us on where to go and what to see and during the course of our stay they were more than willing to help us in any way possible. The house was very clean and spacious but it can be cold inside in April. A pellet stove would be a great idea instead of the wood burner and electrical heating. You can't park in front of the house because of the narrow streets but there is a carpark close-by (steep short walk up to the house so a good condition is required) It has the most amazing views from the rooftop. The Vultures were circling above our heads all day which was one of the most impressive things we ever saw. Montejaque itself is a very well maintained mountain village with a beautiful square and lovely narrow streets, shops and restaurants. Stay here if you want peace and quite. So close to Ronda and other nice villages. We can only recommend it. …
