Description from owner

Description

Gaucin is a "white village" in the Sierra of Ronda, and overlooks the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. It is a paradise for hikers, birders, and those who want to get way from the hubbub of city life. There are festivals throughout the year, such as the running of the bulls thru the streets at Easter, an authentic flamenco festival in July, the annual fair in August, and the processions for the Santo Niño in September, and many more.

The Rosa Alta apartment is the upper storey (one flight up) of an historic house on the main street (very quiet) in Gaucin. It was built in the 18th c. and was completely renovated in 2001. It is full of atmosphere and charm, and has a great view of the castle. The beautiful decoration is all white, with thick walls and antique tiles. The living room has a fireplace and dining area that opens onto a spacious covered terrace for alfresco dining. It has original beamed ceilings and three skylights.

Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

This part of Andalucia has the best weather in Europe. The winter is mild. Tho it rains, it never is cold during the day, and the night would only get to freezing once a year, usually in December. In the summer there is always a cool breeze in the evening, and air conditioning is not required. (Tho we have air conditioning for the siestas.) The humidity in the summer is extremely low, which makes for a pleasant climate.

It is rife with history --- from the nearby prehistoric Pileta caves with 40 layers of cave culture, dating to 40,000 b.c., to the reconquista when Gaucin was freed from the kingdom of Granada in 1487, to the Napoleonic wars, when the French invded and threw our image of the Santo Nio over a cliff, to the Spanish Civil War (1936) when 14 martyrs were shot.

Gaucin borders the largest virgin forest in EUROPE --- a huge cork forest that goes on for hundreds of kilometers. At its entrance there is a little hamlet with several marvelous restaurants that prepare the local products: wild boar, deer and wild mushrooms.

Gaucin

Gaucin is very tranquilo, an ideal bolt hole for rest and quiet, but it is also an ideal base to explore western Andalucia, starting with the great town of Ronda, only 30 mins. away. The Coast is 25 mins. down a windy road. Other cities for day trips are Tarifa, Gibraltar, Marbella, Sevilla, and even Granada if you want a long day.

The most fabulous festival of the year is on Easter Sunday when two bulls are run thru the streets (on a rope) --- one at 10 a.m. and the other at 4 p.m. People come from all over to participate and the testosterone level is high. Lots of fun and great photo ops.

There is an authentic, uncommercial Flamenco festival the last weekend of July. The Fair is the first week of August, and the novena to the Santo Niño (the patron saint of Gaucín) is the first week of September. This includes a romería (pilgrimage in flamenco dress) to the place 5 kms south of town where the saint had his vision. There is Mass, sangría and dancing. The next week there are two processions and two all night parties. Go to www.gaucin.com for more information on festivals in Gaucin.
