Castillo de Monda

Together with my Spanish friend Irene, I am lying by the pool, at a holiday location called Castillo de Monda. Together we are away for a long weekend and stay in one of our favourite destinations: picturesque Andalusia. Gazing at the mountainous landscape, I dream away from reality for a moment. It is pure relaxation here. Castillo de Monda used to be an old castle and was later transformed into an intimate boutique hotel. The charm of the old castle has been well preserved. Everywhere I see details of the old castle, the floors, the walls and the beautiful garden give me a feeling of wealth. I am also close to beautiful Marbella and the fantastic city of Malaga.

One of the three Dutch owners, Arjan, tells me how he and his friends decided to run this special boutique hotel in Andalusia. After the friends visited the old castle together, they immediately fell in love with the place. Together they decided to take up the challenge and moved to Andalusia.

After another dip in the pool, I retire to my own room for a while. The room is spacious and the mosaics on the wall create a cosy atmosphere. In an hour's time I will meet Irene in the restaurant. Owner Jaap will cook a delicious dinner for us. But first I will enjoy the last rays of sunshine on my own little balcony.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
