Los Alcornocales occupies a prized location. Tucked away on a hillside below the very pretty village of Gaucín one is treated to spectacular views, privacy, peace and tranquillity. Add to this an imaginative tropical oasis below a dramatic rockface that contains the swimming pool.

The house is approached by a relatively short track and is not visible until the last minute. It is a spacious and thoughtful house allowing guests to have their own spaces and at the same time providing areas where family and friends can gather together.

This is a comfortable family home, occupied by the owner for most of the year but available for the summer months. It is just forty minutes from the beaches, ten minutes from the village of Gaucín and forty-five minutes from the town of Ronda. Gibraltar is also a forty five minutes’ drive and Malaga one and a half hours. A cook can be provided if required.


Villa Details


Antique double wooden doors lead into the hallway. To the right is a large, double height sitting room with two sets of French windows onto the wisteria covered terrace. It is a fascinating room with a good selection of books and paintings. There is one bedroom that is to the rear of the sitting room with its own en suite bathroom with both bath and walk in shower. The king-size bed can be made up as a double or as twins. It also has French windows onto the terrace with views towards the Mediterranean.

To the left of the hallway is the kitchen and breakfast room. It has all the necessary kitchen equipment including a five-ring gas hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is double marble sink and a separate larder. A covered terrace, with south-facing views, has two dining tables and chairs for dining al fresco.

Beyond the kitchen is a further hallway where there are two more bedrooms both with bathrooms that have walk in showers. One of them has its own sitting room and a double bed and the other has twin beds. Upstairs there is the master suite. This has a bedroom and its own study and full bathroom with both bath and walk in shower. There is a queen sized double bed with a rather beautifully carved frame, and access to a roof terrace.


The gravelled entrance contains a large palm tree and lots of interesting shrubs and succulent plants giving an indication of the rest of the garden. There are plenty of places to sit either in the sun or in the shade and a lawn for children to play on. It is a well planted mature garden.

A pathway leads up to the pool area which lies below the iconic rock cliff that gives this house so much character. Designed to feel like a natural rock pool the effect is simultaneously rejuvenating and calming. The pool measures 11 x 5 metres and is surrounded by tropical yuccas and banana plants.
