Car: Recommended

Cortijo La Hoya is set in the foothills below Gaucin, just off the Ronda-Jimena road. It sits in 30 acres of grounds and mature gardens and is surrounded by National Parkland. Its 14 metre infinity pool provides stunning views towards Africa. We are within easy reach of the Beaches, several local Golf Courses and Sotogrande with its Polo grounds and nightlife. The countryside is ideal for walking and riding. Gaucin which is 10 minutes away is one of the first famous ‘white villages’ of Andalucia. The nearest shops are in San Pablo (5 minutes) and Gaucin. The historic towns of Jerez, Ronda, Seville and Cordoba are an easy car journey. Tarifa, famous for its windsurfing is just 90 minutes away. Morocco and the mesmerising port of Tangier is only a 35 minute ferry ride from Tarifa. We are 45 minutes from Gibraltar airport and 90 minutes from Malaga Airport Please see also our website at

Other Activities: Croquet ,Ping Pong, Table Football, Badminton, Piano


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: I am a Chartered Accountant living and working in London. I set up my own Practice called Ecovis Wingrave Yeats 30 years ago. We are a team of 90 people and part of the Ecovis International Network.

Why Gaucín, Málaga, Spain:
As you will see from the Testimonials, this is a very special place; a family home which is comfy, spacious, romantic and with views to die for. There are very few large houses in Andalucia where families can congregate for special occasions and yet where everyone can find their own space and be on their own if they want to. We have 30 acres of land and extensive gardens, some of it very wild and old, some of it cultivated with classic herbaceous borders, fruit trees, a vineyard and in the spring a waterfall!
