About the property

Finca Yunquera, Nr. Ronda, Andalucia, - Superb Mountain Location In A Charming village Only 40 Mins From Malaga Airport

Four storey, 3 bedroom finca, beautifully converted from a farm building, designed and finished by the owner in a contemporary style, offering luxury and comfort with private infinity pool and huge outdoor terraced space with spectacular views of the valley below and mountains above. Perfectly situated for day trips to the historic cities of Ronda, Seville, Granada and Malaga and for a good variety of beaches at the coastal resorts of Marbella, Estepona & Malaga. This is a rural, non-commercial, typically Spanish location and not for those preferring a more tourist-based holiday. The property is very popular with motorbike and cycling enthusiasts with its quiet, winding mountain roads, all the way from the coast up to Ronda, or if you'd prefer just to sit around and do absolutely nothing, there's tons of outdoor space, a perfect holiday home with views to truly die for!. For more photos of the house, go to the house website (weblink at the foot of this page). The villa is situated in a farming community there are chickens horses mules goats and dogs. Our next door neighbour is a mule and some chickens, heard but not seen unless you venture out at when the farmer heads off with his mule to do a days farming in the valley below only to return in the eve loaded with produce from his land.

Bridget Monaghan purchased this villa in 2003

Why Bridget Monaghan chose Yunquera

We bought the property as a working farm storage building and spent 3 years converting the property into a 3 bedroom holiday home.My business partner Lee Tyler who recently passed away was instrumental in visualising the interiors design as a talented cabinet maker she made a lot of furniture in the house. The area was chosen because of it's rustic and true Andalucian qualities beautiful views and natural surroundings.

What makes this villa unique

Spectacular views and a feeling of tranquility as well as the sound of farm animals around the area of the villa and goat herds that pass by the front door and never cease to amaze me.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Lee, Just a quick note to say we have arrived home safely.

We had a fantastic holiday made all the better by the home you have created. I can honestly say we have not stayed in anything better. And that includes a lava bubble! Chris Koslik and family.

Hi Lee, that was fabulous. We all had a wonderful, relaxing week at your Spanish home. I am certain that we will be booking again. Everything was absolutely perfect. Sharon was a gem, Enara was fantastic, Les and co at Los Amigos were so very friendly, the infinity pool, the views, the village, the goats, the orange trees, lemon trees, butterflies, birds, sun, all contributed to a perfect holiday. We really didn't want to leave after a week. A taste of paradise!

Dawn Evans

Dear Lee, we just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you so much for the use of your gorgeous villa. We had an absolutely fantastic honeymoon and really appreciated the card, flowers, food and sparkling wine that you organised for us. Thanks again, Holly

Yunquera Finca

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience was very good and it is true that the Finca has absolutely stunning views. The villa is well equipped and the unheated pool gave lots of pleasure to our young - even at the end of October!!

The local manager of the villa, Andy, is excellent and very helpful. We had a problem with hot water and the operation of the showers which he tried to deal with as best he could. We have told the owners about this.

Clients need to remember that Yunquera is a very old, authentic, rural village on a steep hillside and as a result car parking, whilst generally available nearby, needs considerable care.

A truly memorable (for all the right reasons) holiday!

Style and facilities in a beautiful rural setting

  • 5 of 5

Yunquera is charming village combining the old traditional rural life with just enough of a selection of Bars,restaurants and small food shops to make for an ideal 'off the tourist trail' holiday.I suspect most 'tourists' are Spanish (weekenders with Villas and walkers - there's a campsite a little way outside the village) and you certainly need to use your best 'holiday' Spanish and sign language, but everyone is extremely helpful and friendly. As the property description says, you have breathtaking views over the mountain and if you look out early you will see local farmers driving their sheep up the road to higher grazing or taking their mule up to their land to work for the day.( you do get a little 'rural' smell in the air :-) We loved lying by the pool watching the odd cloud refection in the pool and the light change on the landscape beyond - and then there was watching the Alpine Swifts swooping in for a quick sip of water from the sparkling pool...

The villa has been stylishly designed, with a lot of attention to detail, to make the most of it's location and is well equipped with everything you would need to cook / BBQ, including a great size fridge freezer with cold water and ice, very good air-conditioning. and comfy beds! I originally wondered if the number of levels might be tedious, but it was absolutely no problem and it was good to be able to spread out outside and come back together for drinks etc

There is an excellent information folder in the house and we would have missed some of the bars/shops without the guide as there are many little streets and some places do not have noticeable signs ( the locals all know where they are!!)

We had a great night stargazing from the 'tower' - such clear skies; some excellent meals - particularly at 'Enara'; lovely coffees in the village; good gin and tonics in various bars;a great day visit to Ronda; and a really, really relaxed time. We'd thoroughly recommend it, if you don't like being a 'processed tourist'!

Special interest holidays:

Walking tours up into the Sierra de las Nieves are available in the village for people of all ages/levels. Birdwatchers will enjoy the variety of birds spotted above and around the house. One of only 5 pairs of nesting Imperial eagles have made their home here along with Golden eagles, kites, falcons and lots of very playful swallows. Horseriding is nearby and can be arranged with a guide on request. The house is ideally located for cycling and motorbike enthusiasts. Just off the recently overhauled, winding mountain road up to Ronda, it's one of the most exciting rides in this part of Spain. There's an English-run hang gliding school about 45 mins from the house, Kite surfing and other beach/wind sports at Tarifa, hot air ballooning in Ronda, Segway tours and bike hire in Malaga and loads more of fun activities all within a reasonable distance.


Marbella is approximately 35 minutes drive away and has a number of really lovely clean beaches. Malaga has a very nice city beach and is very popular with the locals for it's fantastic beach-side fish restaurants serving freshly caught produce, packed on Sundays. Tarifa, the coolest place on the coast for 'surfies' and very popular with all beach sports, is about a 2 hour drive, a beautiful unspoilt location with loads of really well equipped campsites.


Malaga Airport is approximately 45mins drive from the village. Jerez and Seville airports about 2 hours away. Car hire is advised but airport transfers can be arranged by request. Buses go to and from Malaga and Ronda from the village. Trains to most major cities go from both Malaga and Ronda.


Ronda is 35km from the village. The beautiful lakes at El Chorro can be easily reached by car. It takes about 45 minutes to drive there, pedloes and canoes are available for hire and camping overnight is permitted. A great place for swimming, fishing, or just a relaxing lunch. Seville and Jerez are really worth visiting and are an easy 2 hour drive from the house. The Alhambra at Granada is spectacular and can also be reached within 2 hours. This area is famous for it's pretty white villages.

Further Details:

The village has several reasonably well stocked supermarkets, 4 butchers, 2 fishmongers, 4 patisseries, local grocery shops, public telephones, banks and cashpoints, a post office, pharmacy, a tobacconists, 2 discos, a selection of bars serving ice cold beer and tapas and a good number of eateries including a very popular gourmet restaurant run by an internationally trained chef. All the local dishes are delicious, from slow roasted leg of lamb, rabbit cooked in garlic and locally produced olive oil to just a simple plate of egg and chips! Pretty much all the food here is grown or reared around the village and tastes considerably better than in the UK. The village has a number of fiestas all year round that seem to go on for days! Everyone takes part, parading Spanish horsemen, processions through the village, live bands, dancing, huge dishes of free paella, the streets adorned with decorations and lots of fireworks! The Rio Grande, a major river running through this part of Spain, starts here in the village and you can walk down from the house to where it begins, have a picnic and a swim in the lovely fresh clean mountain water. There are several watering points around the village, fresh from the mountain, really cold and very welcome in the searing heat! The surrounding countryside is stunning, with little white houses sprinkled everywhere, there are some splendid walking routes, from an hour or so to five or six hours, whatever suits you. The horseriding trip from the house is definitely recommended, catering for all levels, the route goes right up into the mountains above the house and everyone loves it. The house book is full of local info and maps that guests are welcome to use.
