About the Region
Gaucin is perhaps the most beautiful of Andalusia's Pueblos Blancos, or White Villages, surrounded by picturesque and varied scenery studded with olive, oak, carob and chestnut trees. Perched 630 metres (2,000 feet) up on a mountain balcony against the backdrop of the Gaucín mountain range, and window to the famous town of Ronda . From the spacious terraces (3) there is a terrific view down the Genal River Valley to the Mediterranean coast, Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of Morocco .
Here, in this unspoilt country village of only 2,000 inhabitants, there is a small but well established international community ensuring that all year round there is a lively and varied range of tapas bars, cafes (including an internet cafe), restaurants (mainly April to October) and other essential services (ATM, pharmacy, post office, market, shops, supermarkets, taxis, public swimming pool in summer etc). There is also a railway station, on the scenic line from Algeciras to Ronda and beyond, just a 10 minute drive from Gaucin.
