The Andalucia region
The property is only just inside the Cadiz border. The area has still not attracted massive tourist attention and therefore is still truly Spanish which is a delight.There are shops,bars and restaurants (Ventas) close by where excellent food can be obtained at very reasonable prices.
The area is renowned for its flora and fauna. Enjoy breathtaking views when walking the beautiful countryside or by simply touring around by car.
The wild bird life is a bird watchers paradise with frequent sightings of vultures and eagles.
Dating back to the Roman occupation of Spain, Ronda, the closest town of note, is famous for its spectacular gorge, its historical monuments and the oldest bullring in Spain.reflecting the influence of its Phoenician,Muslim and Christian conquerors.
The town is a prime example of the whitewashed Andalucian architecture, picturesque balconies and gardens.It is situated high above the surrounding plains and views of the impressive Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves, offer a perfect contrast to the fertile fields below them.
This is a very beautiful destination and the ideal place to enjoy more sophisticated Andalucian gastronomy, shop in elegant boutiques or admire the beautiful ceramics.
El Gastor is a beautifully preserved white village, which despite belonging to the renowned White Village Route is not over run with tourists. With its white washed houses and narrow attractively paved streets, it is a delightful, truly Spanish village.
There are several bars and restaurants where you can enjoy local dishes and wines, and you can try out your Spanish with the friendly locals when using the village shops and Thursday market.
There always seems to be some festival or celebration going on every month, so you can experience the rich Spanish culture all year round. Corpus Christi in El Gastor is a sight to behold, as is the village's week long feria, with its own unique flavour,in August.
The Ronda Goyesca with its Corrida (bull fights) and intoxicating atmosphere of 'fiesta, flamenco and fun' takes place in September. Ronda is a wonderful town, with Moorish architecture, old palaces and cool gardens, all making it a very beautiful destination - the ideal place to enjoy more sophisticated Andalucian gastronomy, shop in elegant boutiques, admire the lovely ceramics and be amazed by the famous gorge - El Tajo. Some would say that Ronda is best seen at sunset when the Andalucian heat lifts from the town and the surrounding sierra turns from bleached lemon to yellow ochre. The town comes alive with restaurants, bars and cafes buzzing.
There are many beautiful walks and an abundance of wild bird life in this wonderful area. Where else could you swim with eagles flying overhead or go horseriding through the dramatic mountain passes?
The hamlet of Al Jaral where the property is located is situated overlooking the 'pantano' - the local reservoir/lake where it is possible to fish, kayak and swim.
