Gaucin is ideal as a base to make excursions to western Andalusia. The Coast (including golf courses at Sotogrande) is 25 min. drive, Ronda is 35 min., Gibraltar & Algeciras are 1 hr. away, and Seville, Granada, Cordoba and Cádiz are within 2 hours. Or you can just chill out, in the tranquillity and authenticity of a working Spanish pueblo. The area is a paradise for hikers with many marked trails, and for birdwatchers, it is in the migratory path to Africa. The area boasts many fine restaurants, an award-winning local winery, and a goat cheese factory. At the house, there is binder with suggestions of places to visit, including a map of Gaucin, restaurant recommendations, a hiking guide, and brochures from many of the nearby attractions.

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in 6 different countries over the past 22 years and are looking forward to eventually making Gaucin a semi-permanent home.
Why the Owner Chose Gaucín, Málaga, Spain:
While being posted to Madrid for four years, we fell in love with Andalucia and dreamed of eventually retiring to Southern Spain. We discovered Gaucin and immediately knew that it has everything we were looking for: stunning views, peace and quiet, lovely white village, friendly people, artsy expat community, gourmet dining, access to beaches, golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and a perfect base for exploring Andalucia. We are pleased to offer our home as a vacation rental until we're ready to retire.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This country house has a lovely, peaceful location. You have beautiful views of Gaucin, but no one can view you! It's a wonderfully quiet and restful spot -- no traffic noise, just occasional goat bells or the bay of a mule. Also the top of the property has panoramic views towards Gibraltar and the Rif mountains (see photo!).
