A tranquil and secluded stay at a hilltop castle in a pretty Spanish village in southern Spain

The Lowdown

A truly unique and mesmerising experience awaits at Castillo de Monda: set on a hilltop overlooking the white-washed village of Monda, this traditionally-styled castle offers tranquillity, serenity and spectacular views over the valley and sea. An intimate boutique hotel, it offers pristine, white-walled accommodation filled with natural light, and a laid-back atmosphere from its outdoor swimming pool and patio through to its fine dining restaurant.
You’ll be situated a 50-minute drive from the city of Málaga and a mere half-hour from Marbella, two fabulous coastal cities with vibrant nightlife and beaches to beat, so you’ll never be too far from a tan, sea breeze and sundowner. For a more relaxing experience, Monda itself is perfectly nestled in a mountainous landscape, serving up as much peace and quiet as you’ll ever need. While here, venture to Plaza de la Ermita, visit the Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol and visit the local Mudejar olive oil mill.

Unique place with amazing views

We recently stayed at the Castillo de Monda and had a lovely time. The place is unique. It has amazing views. The rooms are comfortable. There is a pool. Eveyone that works there was very nice. Only reasons for the 4 start instead of 5 is that communication prior to arrival could have been better, and it would be lovely if the pool was heated (it got quite cold). I would definitely recommend it!

Magical Castle

Spectacular place to stay. Super steep to walk or drive up to, but worth the effort. Bring your camera, watercolors, history book, and appetite. The vegetable- rich menu at the restaurant makes a great relief from the Spanish diet.

We chose monda castle restaurant to celebrate a special birthday, with family coming from the UK, I can praise the staff enough for the way we were looked after it was a weekday afternoon so we had the best table with stunning views, we chose to go with A La Carte but were offered the choice of a set menu if we wanted. All our guests loved the food and wine, after our me a we went out to the terrace and sat enjoying the fabulous views a truly memorable birthday thank you all so much
