La Fructuosa is an old village house in the centre of one of the most beautiful and quietest villages in the Serranía de Ronda, Gaucín, known as the balcony of the Serranía. The town offers spectacular views over the valleys of the Genal and Guadiaro rivers and as far as Gibraltar and Africa . Under the current owners, Jesús and Luis, the house has been fully renovated and carefully decorated, and is a warm and welcoming place to stay.
The five large bedrooms are on the top level with views over the Straits of Gibraltar from all of the rooms. On the ground floor, an ancient wine press has been preserved, and is now an original setting for the restaurant. Diners can also savour our excellent cooking while enjoying the breathtaking views from the terrace.
