About Nancy Russell
My husband and I have lived in 6 different countries over the past 22 years and are looking forward to eventually making Gaucin a semi-permanent home.
Nancy Russell purchased this house in 2010
Why Nancy Russell chose Gaucin
While being posted to Madrid for four years, we fell in love with Andalucia and dreamed of eventually retiring to Southern Spain. We discovered Gaucin and immediately knew that it has everything we were looking for: stunning views, peace and quiet, lovely white village, friendly people, artsy expat community, gourmet dining, access to beaches, golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and a perfect base for exploring Andalucia. We are pleased to offer our home as a vacation rental until we're ready to retire.
What makes this house unique
This country house has a lovely, peaceful location. You have beautiful views of Gaucin, but no one can view you! It's a wonderfully quiet and restful spot -- no traffic noise, just occasional goat bells or the bay of a mule. Also the top of the property has panoramic views towards Gibraltar and the Rif mountains (see photo!).
Guestbook comments from the owner
Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, contemplative and genuinely Spanish. This area is unspoiled and is an ideal place to live for a week in Andalusia. There are short trips, long walks, road trips, hikes….the area is pregnant with possibilities. Or just hang around the house, which is a joy in of itself. The mountains, vistas, weather, and village has such visual grandeur, and is so striking, that I felt there needed to be a famous artist doing a landscape painting at all times just to do it justice. I never felt so keenly the inadequacy of a camera. If there was a Spanish version of the Hudson River school of painting, the artists would paint from this area of Gaucin. I will go again.
