The village of Gaucín lies 45 minutes south west of Ronda on the road to Algeciras. It is arguably the prettiest of the white villages in Andalucía and undeniably occupies the best position due to the unrivalled views towards the Mediterranean Sea and Africa beyond, with Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of Morocco often visible on a clear day.
Despite its turbulent past with invasions by Phoenicians, Visigoths, Romans and Moors, Gaucín today is a haven of peace. No-one rushes anywhere, the pace of life is gentle and visitors are soon imbued with a sense of well-being. Gaucín enjoys a mild climate and is blessed with winding streets with flowers bedecking many of the windows and doorways.
The village is situated at the end of the mountains of the Serranía de Ronda in an elevated position with the remains of the Moorish castle as a romantic backdrop and a maze of streets and alleys that straddle below it. There are several good restaurants and bars and interesting shops selling local products and works by village artisans.
Gaucín is fortunate to have a large number of architecturally desirable properties that have remained unspoilt. The surrounding countryside is verdant with large tracts of protected woodland. Gaucín is a highly sought after destination, for both holidays and property purchase, that has retained its typical Spanish character and integrity.
