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.
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.
