Gaucín is in a privileged situation within the
Serranía de Ronda: due to its proximity to both the
most interesting white villages and also to
the best well-known resorts on the coast.
Walk through Gaucín and discover its
Castillo del Águila, the church of San Sebastián
and its typical andalucian white streets.
In less than an hour by car, you can also visit many of the
other White Villages like Algatocín, Benadalid, Benalauría and
its most interesting Ethnographic Museum, Benarraba, Atajate, Benaoján,
Casares, Jimena de la Frontera, Cortes de la Frontera...
Only 42 kms away from Gaucín, you will find the city of Ronda.
An absolutely must-do visit with its very impresive Tajo, palaces and
the oldest bullring of the country.
The finest coastal resorts are at aproximately the same distance:
Estepona (46km) and Marbella (66km) both extremely lively
and with excellent beaches.
We strongly recommend you one of the most beautiful beaches of Andalucia,

a very impressive dune area. At the same time you can profit to visit

region ( all of them less than two hours from the hotel ):
Sierra de las Nieves,
Grazalema, Los Alcornocales, and the Torcal de Antequera.
This region is specially rich from an ornitologist point of view; besides
being a region naturally rich with bird species, it is also
a turn point in the migratory paths between Europe and Africa.

paths, or, if you prefere, on horse.
