The Andalucia region
The Serrania de Ronda has 3 protected national parks - Las Nieves, Grazalema and Los Alcornocales. The beauty of the landscape and bird life in particular can be fully appreciated from a network of trails for walking and riding. There are good Mediterranean beaches just 30 minutes away by car and the beautiful Atlantic beaches on the Costa de la Luz are about 1.5 hours drive away. Guided local walks, birdwatching and horse riding can be arranged.
Places of interest such as Casares, Jimena de la Frontera, Benarraba, Benalauria and Genalguacil are a short drive away and Ronda, with its impressive Tajo bridge, is just 30min away. The coast (swimming and golf), Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banus are 35-50min away and further afield are the historic cities of Sevilla, Cadiz, Jerez, Cordoba and Granada. Tangier and the essence of north Africa is just a 30min ferry ride from Tarifa or Algeciras.
Gaucin is a white village, with its own Moorish castle, spectacularly situated in the mountains behind the Costa del Sol in the Serrania de Ronda. There are fabulous views of the mountains, Gibraltar and the Rif Mountains in Africa at every turn. The narrow streets house 3 small supermarkets, an indoor market with great fish, and both a traditional bakery and butcher. There is also an organic food shop, wonderful delicatessen, banks (cashpoints) post office and a pharmacy. Within walking distance of the house are a variety of small restaurants, cafes and tapas bars. The local swimming pool is open in July and August.
In summer Gaucin hosts a popular flamenco festival and it is clearly a place where the legacies of the ancient Moorish and Jewish cultures are still there to be witnessed and experienced. Guests with an interest in the history of Southern Spain, and in particular the Moorish influence in Andalucia, will find that the local area boasts many historical treasures: the 'Castle of the Eagle' at Gaucin, the fort at Jimena de la Fontera and the ancient walled towns or 'amuralladas' with the evocative architecture of their Jewish and Moorish quarters.
