Recently built traditional rustic style 3 storey village house situated on the edge of the hilltop “white village” of Gaucin, perched over 600 metres above sea level, with its narrow winding streets and white houses.
The village has several excellent restaurants and tapas bars, as well as small supermarkets, banks and other shops
The property, only four minutes walk from the village centre, enjoys stunning views over the valleys below across to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and Moroccan hills and yet is easily accessible from Malaga, Jerez and Gibraltar airports. It has full central heating, double glazing and a log fireplace, making it also a perfect winter retreat. It is tastefully furnished to a high standard by its English owners and has an open living/dining and kitchen area with adjoining covered terrace, three bedrooms (sleeps up to six people), two bath/shower rooms, and a secluded private terrace overlooking the swimming pool, (8m x 4m) shared with 2 adjoining properties.
The village’s whitewashed houses and terracotta roofs, spread across the hillside, mark it as one of the pueblo’s Blanco or white villages of Andalucia. It is overlooked by its castle Castello del Aguila (Eagles’ Castle) and enjoys spectacular views down the valley of the Genal River to the Mediterranean Gibraltar and the Rif Mountains of North Africa.
The village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and the area is of particular interest to those who enjoy walking and bird watching and is on the main migratory route from Europe to North Africa. The area offers many walks with interesting flora and fauna and, by car, tours to the many pueblo’s Blanco of Andalucia. The Costa del Sol is approximately 25 minutes drive, its golf courses 30 to 40 minutes drive and the Atlantic beaches are accessible within one hour’s drive.
