A charming, whitewashed village just half an hour’s drive from the Costa del Sol, this beautiful mountain suburb enjoys sweeping views as far afield as Gibraltar and North Africa.
Known for its international artists’ community, the town has a population of less than 2000 and is divided into narrow, medieval streets populated with tall, narrow houses.
Reached by a 24km ascent up a mountain road and guarded over by a medieval castle, the number of inhabitants has increased due to a growing number of British expatriates who succumb to its obvious charm and relocate there.
Gaucín is best explored on foot and provides plenty of photo opportunities with a selection of things to do including a visit to the Castillo del Aguila (Castle of the Eagle) that dates back to the Romans.
Given the petite size of village, you will be pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants on offer where you can enjoy a typically Spanish, warm welcome and savour some delicious cuisine.
As you would expect, this hidden gem offers a selection of charming property much of which has been tastefully refurbished to include every modern convenience whilst staying true to their traditional character.
