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.

At a 45 minutes’ drive are many famous beaches. Golf Courses at Valderama, Sotogrande, San Roque, La Duquesa, Alcaidesa, Almenara and Estepona are all less than an hour away.

If you wish for more activity you can go riding, walking in the surrounding hills, sailing or even windsurfing at Tarifa, a 60 minute drive. Or you can take a day trip by hovercraft from Tarifa to Tangiers in Morocco. In the winter months skiing in the Sierra Nevada is two and a half hours drive away.

Guests about this villa

“Het kon echt niet beter, het huis krijgt van ons een 10. Schoon, sfeervol, het heeft al onze verwachtingen overtroffen. Tot de zon onderging (19.00uur) buiten zitten op het terras, wat doen we nog in NL?
Een paar opmerkingen: er staat in de huisinformatie onder hoofdstuk 2.3 Er is geen vloerverwarming. Dat klopt, maar de centrale verwarming was ruim voldoende.  Route beschrijving: U komt nu bij een vork in de weg. Er staat nu 1 (een) i.p.v. 3 net geplante palmbomen.
De sleutelafspraken waren 100%. Hartelijk dank voor alle vlotte reacties op onze vragen, Met vriendelijke groeten,”

Geerdien en Henk, February 2018.

Beste Gerdien en Henk, Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie fijne en waardevolle feedback! Heel fijn dat jullie het er zo lekker gehad hebben, en geweldig dat jullie de moeite genomen hebben om me deze puntjes door te geven. Ik heb die puntjes even snel bijgewerkt! De opmerking over ‘geen vloerverwarming’ is onduidelijk in de huisinfo, heb ik aangepast. Ik ben blij dat de cv voldoende was. 🙂 Dat laatste stukje van de routebeschrijving is inderdaad al even niet bijgewerkt, en juist bomen en zo veranderen nog al eens…heb ik ook meteen aangepast. We willen heel graag alles goed doen, dus zijn blij met deze input. Geniet er nog maar lekker van na, en voor later: graag tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike, Vida Rústica
