Out and About

Gaucín is a spectacularly beautiful mountain village commanding sweeping views to Gibraltar and the Riff mountains of north Africa. Its magnificent castle dates from the time of the Roman settlement, and was later expanded by the Arabs into a fortress.

The area of the Costa del Sol Interior in Andalucía is famous for its many cultural sites and for its beautiful Natural Parks. The scenery  is stunning (Los Alcornocales Natural Park, Serranía de Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves etc.). It is a paradise for walking, exploring, riding and bird watching.

There are numerous remains of ancient civilizations in the area. Nearby Ronda is famous for its spectacular Puente Nuevo that spans the deep canyon that divides Ronda’s old and ‘new’ quarters, and there are Moorish palaces, Renaissance mansions, and Andalusia’s best preserved Arab baths. Within a 2 hour drive are Seville, Granada and Cordoba.

It is a half an hour drive from the holiday villa to the beaches and golf courses of the Mediterranean coast.

Guests about this villa

“Om te beginnen bedankt voor al het geregel, zeker daar we wat andere wensen hadden en we wat aan het schuiven waren met het aantal nachtjes, gezien onze positieve ervaring met jullie gaan we de volgende keer zeker weer kijken naar jullie aanbod in Spanje. Het huisje in Gaucin was prachtig gelegen, schitterend uitzicht en zeker voor mensen die houden van de natuur genoeg te genieten, ook in de directe omgeving. De luxe van vloerverwarming was erg prettig, we hebben de open haard geeneens aan gehad. Nogmaals bedankt en wie weet tot volgend voorjaar. Groet,”
