The property, La Hacienda, provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to 12 people. It is divided into three units around a large terrace and pool (10.5 x 4.5m). The main villa Picasso sleeps 6, the adjoining house Gaudi sleeps 4 and the cottage Dali sleeps 2. During July and August La Hacienda is let as a whole for families or a group who want to holiday together. At other times Picasso can be let on its own or together with Gaudi and/or Dali. There is a large grassed area for ball games. La Hacienda is ideal for friends and families of all ages who want to holiday together but still have their own space. The property is detached and is not overlooked. It is in the natural park of Grazalema and has stunning views down the valley and up to the mountains. La Hacienda is on level ground and there is only a very gentle slope on the first part of road to the village. Most of it is flat so fine for pushchairs. The pool is accessed through gates at either end so that the area is safe for young children. The dining/sitting room in Picasso is suitable for a large group. The normal changeover day is Saturday but can be flexible during the low season. Please contact the manager. Cotton bed linen, towels and pool towels are provided. La Hacienda is on the edge of a typical Spanish white village (pueblo blanco). Montejaque has supermarkets, shops, banks, bars and restaurants. The nearest bar is less than 5 minutes walk from La Hacienda. The village has a central square where cultural activities take place at different times of the year. Please have a look at the video and you can see the surrounding area and some examples of regional food and cultural events. Montejaque is also the starting place for several sporting events eg. charity walks and bike rides. The historic town of Ronda with its famous bull ring is 15 minutes drive away. The beautiful villages of Zahara, with its picturesque lake, and Grazalema are less than half an hour by car from Montejaque. The beaches of the Costa del Sol are about an hour away. It is an ideal base for the many activities available in the area, walking, bird watching, painting, canoeing, riding etc.
Beautiful property in a peaceful location with stunning mountain views on the edge of a white village.

About Mike Hughes
I have been going to Montejaque for 25 years. I love the place. The villagers are really friendly and welcoming to visitors. Most summer holidays have been spent here with my family. There is lots to do and space for the children to run around safely.
Why Mike Hughes chose Montejaque
The property is just on the outskirts of the village and a short walk to the nearest tapas bar and shops. The views from the house are stunning and it's in a peaceful location. All the rooms open out on to the terrace. The house is very well insulated so that when its hot outside at the height of summer it's lovely and cool inside. The swimming pool is 10.5 x 4.5 m so there's plenty of space for everyone. It's safe for children as the pool has stylish metal railings around it with two entrance gates at both ends. As the property is divided into three units it's ideal for families or groups of friends who may want to have their own space at times. All in all a great place for extended family and friends to relax and chill out.

A great place to stay with our extended family of 12.
This was our second visit here to this villa. Very well set up for our family with an age range from a 2 year old to two 87 year old great grandmothers. We took it in turns to walk into Montejaque for breakfast bread in the mornings. A lovely place to stay especially if you like walking and rock climbing. The highlight was walking to Ronda for a guitar concert with a couple of stops afterwards for tapas and fino. The weather deteriorated towards the end of our stay but Isobel came to the rescue and kept us provided with bags of wood for the fire and was really helpful when we lost power
It is a lovely place situated in wonderful surroundings
We stayed out of season - the weather was la-la so we could'n enjoy the pool - the little town was somewhat closed down - I should so much like to return during summertime.
The house (Picasso) is so nice, spacy and filled with good furniture, utensils and tekstills.
Perfect holiday enjoyed by all the family
The villa is at the bottom of the village in a magnificent location with views of the hills. In the village are good restaurants, a lovely square surrounded by bars (tapas £1 each). The locals were friendly and helpful. Ronda is less than half an hour away by car. On the way to Ronda are the Cueva del Gato with a natural pool to swim in near the caves. Try going there when it is quiet to enjoy the tranquillity.
There are lots more places to visit so we will have to go back another time.
Pool cleaned regularly and good support from the agency.
Fabulous Villa's, Village and people
My best friend and I booked all three villas of La Hacienda for two weeks this August to celebrate our 50th birthdays with our families. Mike was great to deal with throughout the booking, following up with good local information just before our visit. Isabel the house manager was also helpful throughout our stay.
The photos for the property do not do it justice. It looked fantastic as we pulled up, and this continued throughout after opening the main doors and venturing through.
It is very spacious and cool and clean throughout. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms stayed cool enough with the ceiling fans even through the 40+ temperatures on our arrival.
Everything is well equipped, with plenty of kitchen equipment. We had several bbq’s with all but the charcoal (as expected) there for your needs.
Enough towels, sun loungers and umbrellas for all. The pool was absolutely fantastic and cleaned daily.
Plenty of space for the hire cars, in your own off road (gated) spaces is a bonus as well.
Montejaque (pronounced Montehack or Montehaggy I believe) is lovely. Yes it’s a slightly tougher walk up into the village, but no more than 15 minutes at a slow pace. Bar 31 at the top of the street if you can’t make it all the way is air conditioned, well that was mine and John’s excuse for stopping there every day!
The people are very friendly and make a real effort, if you do to! We had some lovely breakfasts/meals and tapas in several of the bars/restaurants and cafes. The local bakery is well worth a early visit each day. The village square is a lovely area and was great for some evening entertainment.
The views from the villas and around the town are stunning with some lovely walks as well (though perhaps not for the less mobile).
We visited the beautiful Ronda, Zahara and did the Andalusian horse show in Jerez. All worth seeing if you stay here.
Thank you Mike and Isabel and we look forward to visiting again!
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind words
Booked the house for a group of 6 adults and 4 kids. Mike was very communicative throughout the process and was always available to answer any questions for us. The house is brilliant and well equipped. Plenty of room for all of us and being spread over three seperate units offers privacy as well if you need it. The village is a short walk away with a couple of tapas bars, however plan ahead as the opening hours can vary. La Casita was a reliable alternative which is usually open and provides good options though not local. Do try the freshly fried fish and grilled chicken available in the local shop in the village, they usually sell out very quickly. Ronda is a half hour drive away with plenty of options.
We did have some niggles in the first two days as the property managers did not seem to be prepared for us. There was no hot water or firewood available and having arrived on the weekend we had to wait till Monday. Mike was easily reachable and made sure everything was sorted out as soon as possible.
This is a great place to get away from the crowds and has plenty of options for trekking in the area
Hi thank you for your review-I am glad that you had a great time-apologies for the couple of issues but as you said we got them sort quickly kind regards Mike
A dream which came true
It was an absolute delight to rent La Hacienda. We were an extended family of 15 people ranging from 3 years to 75 years and all thoroughly enjoyed our time in the fabulous surroundings, comfortable houses and the excellent leisure facilities - swimming pool, table tennis table, badminton racquets etc. The BBQ was easy to use and clean and provided a very cheery atmosphere in the evenings.
Our holiday was a celebration of the fifty years of marriage of my husband and I. It was my wish and anniversary gift to have our family as a whole in the one place at the one time. The villa complex allowed that to happen, thanks to the generosity of the owners who allowed the extra beds and facilitated the dream.
We did have a problem with the lock on the door of Gaudi but we were exceedingly well served by the on call backup staff who were swiftly on the ball and with their excellent men had the door operational once more. Isabel was the soul of efficiency not only in matters relating to the complex but also in sorting transport to and from El Molino restaurant (which was just superb!) and for that we thank her too. The gardening and pool gentlemen were also most considerate and kindly as they carried out their tasks. The houses are spacious and exceedingly well equipped with everything you might need if self catering. The beds are most comfortable and there are plenty of chairs and loungers etc.
The friendliness of the folk in the village was an added bonus and much appreciated. As was the fact that it really was within easy walking distance.
La Hacienda is much more than the description on the net and I was tempted not to pass on the good impressions we have experienced in case others want to book when we too might want to stay!!
