Would you like to spend a few days far away from the daily routine and stress? Then this might interest you. If you’re looking for a natural environment where you can relax and enjoy a romantic getaway, Montejaque is the ideal place for you. This small Serranía de Ronda village is located right in the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park and is considered one of inland Malaga’s best white villages.
Its charming streets allow you to enjoy spectacular views of the mountains and the valley, making it an idyllic place for those looking for a little calm and tranquillity.
Where to stay
Some of the best rural accommodation you’ll find in Montejaque include the Casitas de la Sierra, the Posada del Fresno and the Cortijo Fuente Marchal. These are fully equipped with all modern services, some have swimming pools to enjoy during the summer months and all have splendid views.
Where to eat and enjoy tapas
In addition to its wonderful natural surroundings, Montejaque is also noted for its great cuisine. Despite being a small inland village, its numerous bars and restaurants are perfect for sampling the best tapas and specialties of the Serranía. Restaurants such as La Casita, Entre Ascuas, El Patio de Frasquito Pedro and El Altillo offer excellent traditional home-made dishes.

Here, you’re guaranteed to find a good atmosphere and they are ideal places for a beer or a good wine accompanied by excellent tapas.
