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 Occidental 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.

“The villa was perfect for us! Just absolutely wonderful – Josefi was such a great manager too and helpful beyond expectation. From the bespoke driving instructions, to the early arrival and the little welcome pack and water etc, right through to the standard of the house and location; La Jacaranda and Vida Rustica have been the very best villa rental experience we have had in any country. We will be looking to book La Jacaranda again next June 2020 if it will be all all possible in the coming weeks/months – I think that is the biggest compliment that we can give. Thank you once again! I look forward to being in touch with you again in future. With very best wishes,”

Thanks so much; I will inform Josefi and the owners too. They too will be very happy to hear this. In the meantime, I have transferred your breakages deposit.
