Full sets of crockery and cutlery are provided as well as all the usual kitchen staples that you may need to prepare meals. The house is also managed by our local agent who is available for assistance 24/7 and professionally cleaned after each guest.

The spacious and airy main room is fitted with a cosy wood burning stove for the winter months. Large comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV and DVD player with a sound system are also provided. There is a good selection of fiction and books on the local area and the various walking trails. Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. We subscribe to the premium service and the connection speed is generally excellent.

There are three good size bedrooms. The master bedroom is en-suite with shower toilet, bidet and hand basin featuring two balconies with spectacular views onto the natural park below. There is a king size bed with double wardrobes and storage chest of drawers. The amazing view of the valley from here with the fragrance of jasmine below makes for a great start to the day. The second bedroom has twin beds, a double wardrobe with a storage chest of drawers and its own Juliet balcony. The third bedroom has two single beds and chest of drawers. The bathroom for these two bedrooms is fitted with a shower, bidet and a bath.

The property benefits from a large terrace and a secluded garden overlooking a picturesque almond grove and is a great place to enjoy breakfast in the morning. In the evening there are breathtaking views of the sun setting onto the mountains of Sierra Grazemala Natural park. The private walled garden can be directly accessed from the kitchen or the main room and is ideal for some alfresco dining. A barbecue is provided and we can provide you details of where you can buy good quality locally sourced meat, fish and other products. The garden is well stocked with lemon, apricot and olive trees as well as herbs including mint, rosemary, bay, and thyme. Guests are more than welcome to pick the fruit and herbs for use in the kitchen.

The property enjoys easy free access to a semi private pool 2 minutes walk away. The pool area is equipped with comfortable sun loungers and offers great views across the valley. At one end of the village, there is the large municipal pool. Best time to visit between 11 and 3 when guests will often find they have the place to themselves. A truly marvellous place to view eagles and vultures coasting in the mountains above.

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.

Getting there

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.

Getting Around

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.

About Michael Turner

Based in England in glorious rural Suffolk, Lynda is an early years teacher and with Michael ran their own furniture restoring business.

We first visited Andalucia in 2004 and fell in love with the beautiful scenery and the Spanish way of living. We were drawn to the vibrant community feel of Montejaque, the amazing opportunities for walking close by and the village's proximity to the beautiful towns of Ronda and Seville.

In 2005 we bought this traditional Spanish village house and worked closely with reputable local craftsmen to transform it to its present state.

We spend several months of the year in Montejaque and the remainder in our home in rural Suffolk or wherever in the world our three children happen to be at the time.

We love to travel and meet new people and in recent years have visited Sri Lanka, China and India. If you have any questions about the area then please do not hesitate to give us a call. We know the village well and if we don't know the answer immediately we will certainly do our best to find out!

Michael Turner purchased this house in 2006

Beautiful property, stunning scenery!!!

The property is located in the most stunning rural area with beautiful mountain views surrounding. Maintained to high standard, a home from home feeling.

Helpful management team, always contactable. Lots of fabulous places to explore in the region. Friendly rural village with well stocked local shops, tavernas. Would happily return for longer next time!!

Lovely Spanish home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family of four adults stayed a week in Michael's house and we wished we'd had a few more days! It was fantastic weather, the village was buzzing with a music festival for the first few days of our stay. The mountains and the walking suited us all. The added bonus was the pool at the end of the street, always quiet and even though the water was very cold, it was great to cool off after a hot trek through the countryside.

The house was well equipped and the courtyard garden was cool and relaxing.

We found everyone friendly and the food at La Casitas was great.

Thank you Michael.

Lovely house but let down by 3rd bedroom

  • 4 of 5

Very well appointed with two external eating areas. 3rd bedroom was disappointing and not usuable during our stay. Having said that we would return - the location is great and the local agent was very helpful.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you did not have proper access to the third bedroom. Perhaps if you had made it clearer that you required use of it beforehand,then our agent could have had the beds prepared and the room aired.

Charming and comfortable house. Pretty village, splendid landscape setting.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the seclusion it offered, even in the village location. Wonderful view of the limestone hills from the roof terrace. Loads of wildlife which was one of the principal reasons for coming to Andalucia at this time of year, and we were near several good walks in the Grazelema national park. We could not have been better looked after by Isabel, who responded promptly to our calls for advice. We commend her willingness to greet our arrival so late in the night after our two hour flight delay. The only slight misgiving was that some of the villagers seemed quite wary of us, even though we tried to be friendly. But perhaps that was more to do with our bungling of the language than anything else.

Scenic Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The village of Montejaque is a postcard, tumbling into the palm of the dramatic karst peaks which surround it. The place feels magically remote yet the house and the village provide every comfort and are within easy striking distance of major sites. During our five night stay we enjoyed separate day trips by car to Seville and to the Mediterranean coast near Marbella. Rhonda is less than half an hour. Michael and Lynda were always available by email in the months leading up to our visit as was the house manager, Isabel, during our stay. The dining in town was exceptional, particularly La Casita, just a few doors from Michael and Lynda's beautiful house. We highly recommend the Village House and hope to return soon.

Fantastic mountain view

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week long holiday in Montejaque. The house exceeded our expectations, it was immaculately clean, well equipped and very spacious. The Master bedroom has fantastic panoramic views to the mountains through the French doors.

The Italian/International fusion restaurant "La Casita" is highly recommended (less than 2 minutes away) and booking advised. A few of the other local Bar/restaurants are also worth a visit, good home made local produce and entertainingly welcoming.

This is a perfect base to explore the mountains and numerous deserted walking/cycling trails in the northern Andalusia area. Nearby, Ronda gets very "touristy" however, it's worth a half day visit.
