Surrounded by spectacular mountains on all sides, Montejaque is a charming village with excellent local amenities including a bakery, several grocery shops and some excellent drinking and dining options .
Upon booking we will send you a short guide setting out all our favourite places to shop, eat and drink.The historic town of Ronda(15 minutes away)is perched on a plateau above spectacular cliffs and the dramatic gorge splitting the town in two is spanned by the famous 18th century bridge,featured in the Hemingway book. Montejaque is ideally placed for visits to Seville and Granada.
The airports of Seville,Malaga and Jerez are almost all equidistant from Montejaque.(about one and a half hours).There is a regular coach coming up from Malaga and it is even possible to take the train from Granada.
There are fantastic walks around the village and a daily bus service to nearby Ronda. However to get the very best out of the area ,we do recommend hiring a car. Parking in the village is straightforward and we usually use a spot located a couple of minutes from the house.
